Two For Tuesday: Winners and Weather

Kate Hart

You guys are amazing. I got over 60 responses to my ridiculously long contest entry form. Thank you so much!! I was so excited that I forgot how to count and chose an extra winner.


Jess Byam, Windy Aphayrath,
Erinn Manack, and Pam Harris

Be watching your email for a note from me so we can start planning a ridiculous t-shirt for you!

and in a totally inappropriate segue:


If you follow me on Twitter, than you're already tired of hearing about this, but my region is having a hell of a spring, and I'm afraid we're going to hear even more about it in the next few days. Northwest Arkansas has been flooding, as have Kentucky, Missouri, Indiana, and Illinois. A big tornado hit St. Louis over the weekend, and last night tornados hit an Air Force base in Little Rock as well as the town of Vilonia, which is being described as "wiped off the map." Ten people have died in my state alone.

L to R: The steps at Old Main on the University of Arkansas campus (NOT a fountain); rescues on Harmon Rd, Fayetteville;
Highway 112, about a mile from my house; Gregg St, Johnson, about two miles from my house. Thankfully my home
and family are fine, but many others are not.
Most pictures from here.

We have more severe weather predicted for the rest of the week. Please send your thoughts and good wishes to the people affected by these storms, and if you're so inclined, drop a donation by the Red Cross.


Two For Tuesday is a weekly meme I made up when I couldn't think of anything to blog about. Post two of anything: book reviews, pictures, quotes, poems, songs, videos, rants, shout outs, whatever floats your boat. Just connect them somehow. That's it. Leave me a comment if you want to share!


  1. YAY!!! WOOT Thanks for hosting

  2. congrats to the winners, and my goodness- glad you and yours are okay and hoping that the weather holds.

  3. OMG! So awesome! Thanks so much! I'll stop shouting at you now and wait patiently for your email. :)

  4. Yay! Hooray! and Huzzah! I never win anything :) ... I feel so speshul!

  5. Wait, I won? HUZZAH! I just saw some cute shirts on Etsy and thought, "Nah, I like Kate Hart's better." :)

    STAY SAFE, k? Those storms are scary, and my thoughts are with all of you.
