Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
5-28-04 A new generation of soldiers being honored in Cooke County this Memorial Holiday. It’s a powerful sight seen by those driving Highway 82 in Lindsay, Texas. 924 white crosses put up by the Cooke County Knights of Columbus, what they call a reminder for people to pray for our lost and fighting troops – those killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Joe Schmitz is a veteran of the Persian Gulf War. He put up four more crosses just today for four new soldiers killed in action. The crosses will be up for another week, until the Monday after Memorial Day Weekend.
