A Look At The Severe Weather

Monday night and early Tuesday morning was quite the severe weather event. A total of 7 tornadoes were confirmed with 21 people injured. I have been amazed at seeing much of the video we received from our videographers and reporters who spent Monday night on the scene at many of these locations! Mobile homes looked to have exploded. Some rolled with occupants inside. Well built brick homes were damaged and 18 wheelers were tossed around like toy trucks.

Although I received my share of negative comments from those who thought I did too much coverage and those who thought I didn't do enough, the fact remains how blessed much of Mississippi was. (Some viewers could care less whether or not their neighbors are going to get blown away, as long as it doesn't affect their tv viewing habits.) This map shows why this event was a serious one. The red boxes show just how many tornado warnings I covered--47 tornado warnings!

We will finally get to enjoy some drier this week as others put their lives and property back together.

I left the Jackson area over a year ago and looking back at you I remember why you made my stomach churn!! You are a religious freak who desperately needs professional attention!! The hair is too much and you need to stop trying to be a Miss Mississippi. Shed the old photo on WLBT's web site and be a real woman!!! I do believe in my God, but you take it to a strange level!!!

Anonymous, what kind of God do you serve that approves of you thinking/saying/writing this about someone else - someone you don't even know? I'm gonna have to side with Barbie's God on this one.

I agree with Kathy. I am so happy to love a God that doesn't judge..who loves us unconditionally who for who we are and sees that all of us have special gifts and talents that can be used for HIS Glory! Some of us obviously need a lesson in that more than others.

Dear Anonymous,

It sounds like you are the one with issues and need to seek professional help. Are you so insecure in your own life that you feel the need to insult others?

I don't understand why so many people are so quick to insult a beautiful woman who is doing her job! She keeps her viewers up to date on the weather...and does a wonderful job doing so! Why does it matter to so many people what outfit she wears or her hair style?

Barbie, I hate to hear negative comments. I get them all of the time, and with family in politics we hear everything. I think you are doing a great job. Your blog is so inspirational and I love reading it. You are a wonderful Christian and you are the same on and off TV. Again, being around politics I'm been around a lot of "FAKE" people. You are NOT one of them. Congratulations on all of your accomplishments.

If the critical anonymous person doesn't care for Barbie and her beliefs, she should quit reading her blog! Very hateful words.

I just read the MC article and enjoyed it. I am adding your uplifting blog to my reading list. By the way, your family is precious!
