    I love the first Tuesday of the month

    First Tuesday of every month, at 10:00, I get to hear the glorious sound of sirens. Sounds like.... victory.


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    I see a tornado, I walk up to it and wrap my arms around it. That's just Cy coming to town for a visit.

    Tornado siren tests were always on the first Tuesday of the month in Dyersville, when I was growing up, too. Sorry, 3TrueFans.

    Last time I heard them testing the sirens was 10:00 on a wednesday. But that is in Ames. Frightening to wake up too.

    Re: I love the first Tuesday of the month

    As I recall from my childhood, they were on the first Tuesday of the month in Davenport, too. Seemed like it was 10:30 instead of 10:00 though.


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”

    Re: I love the first Tuesday of the month

    My hometown and the entire county (Waukesha County, WI) tests the tornado sirens every Saturday at noon. I was one time umpiring a baseball game and the siren right by the field went off right at noon like clockwork. Had to reassure the coaches that it was a normal test and we could continue to play.
