Dallas Veterans Day Parade Cancelled Due To Weather

As reported by WFAA.com news, the Dallas Veterans Day parade canceled ahead of rainy, cold weather

Parade chairman Phillip A. Teipel confirmed the cancellation due to "severe weather" and "overwhelming safety issues."

Well, Mother Nature just couldn't play nice for today's Veterans Day Parade in Dallas, TX we actually have a "wintery mix" in the forecas.!  The Dallas Veterans Day Parade Committee is a subsidiary of the Greater Dallas Veterans Foundation. The membership consists of veteran organization representatives, civic leaders, and members of the active and reserve military components.

"...We salute those who are serving, those who have served and those
who have made the ultimate sacrifice..."

Remember Veterans Day

Once again I went in search of “freebies” for Veterans, as so many restaurants and other businesses are honoring our Heroes with specials to thank them for their service this Veterans Day. I want to thank Military.com for posting this wonderful list with weblinks for easy information. And, of course, a big thank you to all of the companies that are participating and celebrating our service men and women.  I am grateful for our Heroes - where would we be without our Veterans and active duty service personnel! The following is a list of restaurants offering special meals and other companie with discounts and freebies in honor of Veterans Day, as posted by Military.com:

It's too bad the weather didn't cooperate for this year's Veterans Day parade, Lisa.

What a shame, Lisa, that the Veteran's Day Parade had to be cancelled. I'm sure there were a lot of disappointed participants and spectators.

Good morning again Lisa. Oh no, you can not control Mother Nature. Here's hoping that all veterans and their families will still feel the warmth of appreciation.

Same in Oklahoma City, we have snow and wind gusts at ove4 40 mph. Time to stay indoors.

It was a cold day today here and the rain forced the ceremonies inside. I saw on the National Weather Map snow flurries above us. This weather is crazy.
