It's a beautiful day. And there won't be another one like it for awhile because it's about to heat up fast. We have an Excessive Heat Watch for Thursday, Friday & Saturday. I know that's not our desire because this is no ordinary heat. Indeed, three days with heat indices of 105+ can leave a person with vertigo, so don't go staring at the sun. Instead, take to the shade of the Joshua tree, or just stay inside and listen to the HVAC rattle and hum. We aren't expecting an electrical storm any time soon, either. Today and tomorrow look to be dry, with only slight rain chances Thursday and Friday. So if you feel like you're stuck in a moment you can't get out of, it's all right, it's all right, it's all right, because we'll get a cold front on Sunday that will break the heat. And then we'll find what we're looking for.
Good Day Sunshine

They held handfuls of his beard, and hair and pulled it out by the roots. They wanted him alive.
They kicked, punched, and spit on him for hours. Until there wasn't a single spot on his body not covered in blood. They wanted him alive.
They shoved a crown of thorns down on his head so harshly it stuck in his skin. They wanted him alive.
After hours of being beaten, mocked, whipped, flogged, and tortured they made him walk with a cross. They made him carry it. A rough piece of wood with splinters digging into fresh wounds. They wanted him alive.
They wanted him to feel every ounce of pain they could bring.
He had to feel it in order to heal us.
Crucifixion was historically one of the cruelest most tortured deaths a human could face. Hours upon hours of torture. Torture most of us can not mentally think of because the cruelty isn't normal. It isn't something our minds can comprehend.
We celebrate Easter with pastel colors, happy children hunting eggs, and chocolate. Truth is there was absolutely nothing happy about the day Jesus died. It was cruel, bloody, and nasty.
He could have stopped all of it. He could have called every angel in heaven to demolish every person standing and shouting "Crucify Him!"
He didn't. He knew in order to have a Sunday you have to have a Friday. He knew in order to have joy you have to carry your cross. He felt everything that day. He felt how your heart broke wide open when you had to watch your baby die. He felt how heavy your life was when you were staring down the barrel of a gun wondering if the man you called husband was going to shoot you. He carried the weight of the burden you have felt since your spouse died and life just doesn't seem right since. On that cross he held the ra**st and murderers, the sinner and the saint. He leveled every playing field and said ALL of you are worth it. He knew he had to carry the cross. He never promised the cross you carry in this life would not be heavy. His wasn't. His promise is that Sunday is coming.
No matter how heavy Friday is. Financially, emotionally, mentally, or physically. Friday is heavy. That cross is weighing you down and you are about to crumble under its weight.
His promise was simply this. He won't make you carry it alone.
What kind of king would step down from his throne for this?
Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of God did. For you.
He did every bit of it for you and me.
Oh yes it is heavy. So heavy sometimes you do not think you can take one more step.
But look up, because Sunday is coming.

Q: How old do you have to be to enter Splash Island unaccompanied?
A: Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult to enter Splash Island. Children 13 and over can attend unaccompanied. Children under 18 cannot supervise other children/siblings at the pool without an adult attending. An adult must be present.
Q: Can I bring my own food/drinks? What about a cooler?
A: We do not allow outside food or drinks (except birthday cakes for booked parties). There is a concession option on site, or there are limited passes for exit and re-entry during a session. Absolutely no coolers are allowed in the gates without supervisor inspection and permission (medical/infant milk supplies only).
Q: How tall do I have to be to ride the slides?
A: You must be 48” or taller to ride any of our slides. This is not negotiable and heights will be checked.
Q: I heard there is a swim test to ride the slides?
A: Swim tests are in the 5’ area from ladder to ladder. This is used if there is concern over a guest’s swimming ability and must be passed before you can use the slides. These tests are at any lifeguard’s discretion and must be passed to use the slides. Refusing to take the swim test means you can swim at the pool but cannot ride the slides.
Q: What about height requirements for the blue slide?

Q: What is the weather policy?
A: We use a lightning detection system that warns us of inclement weather.
1. If our system warns of lightning strikes within 10 miles of Splash Island, we clear the pool for 30 minutes. If not other strikes are recorded in a 30-minute window within 10 miles, swimming resumes. If lightning continues, the 30-minute timer restarts with every recorded strike.
2. If our system warns of lightning strikes within 5 miles of Splash Island, we clear the pool and the pool deck for 30 minutes. Patrons are welcome to wait at their vehicles in a safe area until the all-clear is given. If no other strikes are recorded in a 30-minute window within 10 miles, swimming resumes. If lightning continues, the 30-minute timer restarts with every recorded strike.
3. Anytime a recorded lightning strike is within 10 miles, this policy will kick in. Once it is outside 10 miles, normal pool operations will resume.
4. If inclement weather closes the pool for the day in the first half of a session (2pm on Sun-Thurs, 3pm on Fri-Sat), a rain check will be issued to swimmers remaining at the pool at that time. If inclement weather closes the pool after those specified times, no rain check will be given. This decision is at the director’s or pool manager’s discretion based on this written policy.
Q: Do you offer swim lessons?
A: At this time, we do not offer swim lessons.

Today we celebrated Mardi Gras! We had a parade with instruments, crazy hats, and beads. For lunch we had shrimp, red beans and rice, and King Cake straight from New Orleans !
It’s that time again!
[1:35 PM] This is the area I’m most interested in as it pertains to our severe weather potential later this afternoon… The portion of the line circled will impact us.
I expect more warnings to pop up as these storms enter an area that is very storm-friendly.
Stay connected over the next few hours. ETA 2-4 PM for Bedford, 3-5 for Coffee.
The Storm Prediction Center continues to have Tullahoma in the "Enhanced" risk category for severe weather Thursday afternoon. They have increased to potential for tornadoes to 10% due to the atmospheric conditions currently present and expected to develop. The timeframe for these storms is from noon to 6pm, although that could change during the day. Expect a tornado watch to be issued at some point later this morning. Please be aware of changing weather conditions, have a way to receive weather warnings, and have a plan on what to do if a warning is issued. We will continue to provide updates throughout the day.
Here is a look at the latest timing from the NWS. Storms will begin to move into the area between 2 and 4 PM.
We remain under an ENHANCED risk (level 3/5) for severe thunderstorms today. Rain has moved well north of the region, and we’re now in the “open warm sector.” We’ll be watching for thunderstorm development and to see how well the atmosphere prepares for severe thunderstorms this afternoon.
Here is a link to my post from yesterday afternoon, which does a good job outlining the threat as a whole. Remember, “Round One” has already passed. Just focus on the paragraph(s) explaining round two. https://www.facebook.com/2052874158289409/posts/3352730464970432/
