Good Thursday Morning Tupelo! Y’all, its COLD!

Today is Thursday, November 15th, 2018. Today is the 319th day of the year and there are 46 days left in the year. Thanksgiving is this coming Thursday, so 7 days away. Lots of us will be traveling, and some parts of the country are likely to have rough conditions so be careful out there. Winter starts in 36 days (Officially, but I’m pretty sure we can say it’s here now) and Christmas is 39 days from today.
Here’s a quote pulled from WTVA – The Weather Authority
We continue to see clouds across the region along with freezing temperatures and north winds. Along with these clouds could come a few lingering flurries for those along the Tennessee state line. But more than likely, all the moisture is out of the region. There has also been some fog over West Tennessee, some of which could drift into our northern counties. So watch for slick spots on bridges and overpasses early this morning in our northern counties. Otherwise, we’ll gradually clear out the clouds and sunshine returns by mid-afternoon. Temperatures will warm from the upper 20s and lower 30s to the upper 30s to lower 40s.

Tupelo Community Theatre will present Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf by Edward Albee November 15-17 at 7 p.m. at @TCT Off Broadway, 213 East Franklin. Winner of the 1963 Tony Award for Best Play, the Broadway production of this play was a shattering and memorable experience and proclaimed the author as a major American playwright. The play has been described as a scorching, scalding, revealing and completely engrossing drama and a brilliant piece of writing. The story involves a professor at a small college and his wife who have returned home drunk from a party. The wife announces that she has invited a young couple, an opportunistic new professor at the college and his shatteringly naïve new bride, to stop by and the charade begins when they arrive. The play is R rated for language and discussions some patrons may find offensive. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students and may be purchased by calling the TCT office at 844-1935.

In town this week, set up by The Mall at Barnes Crossing, Cirque Italia-Gold Unit presents their amazing water circus. Packed full of incredible acts, there is no room for boredom. The variety presented is exceptional. For those who enjoy whimsy, we have an Avatar. There is almost no bodily limit for our contortionist, Ricardo, as he bends in ways you never would have imagined. Our incredible wheel of death performance features a front somersault flip, something you will be hard-pressed to see anywhere else. If that doesn’t get your head spinning, perhaps our 5 roller skaters and their incredible tricks and turns will. And although Cirque Italia does not use animals in our performances, this year we will be featuring amazing lifelike elephant puppets. They are so well made, you might just think they are real. Whether it’s a futuristic laser act or mesmerizing aerial performances, the show has something for all tastes and expectations. One thing Cirque Italia sets out to accomplish is to create a type of world-class entertainment suitable for all age groups.
