April 21st
Today will be a special day in Boston,lots of emotions today.
For those not familiar with this day,its a local holiday,called Patriot's Day,use to be called Bunker Hill Day,but schools and government are shut down,and of course the Boston Marathon.
It is always held on Patriots' Day, the third Monday of April. Begun in back in 1897.
It's always been a huge event,but after last year's events,it's huge now.
We get runners from all over the world.
This whole week has been so emotional with survivors and the families who lost their lives coming together to prove to the enemies out there,you can't stop us.If anything you make us stronger.
Great stories have come out of this horrible event,if you need inspiration in life,read some of the stories and the many books that are now being written.
Boston is a big city,but not so big as to still have that small town feel to it.And its pride really showed itself when everyone rallied around all the injured and all those still going through so much.

April 22nd,
Hope people get a chance to do some planting, plant a tree if possible and add to our wonderful earth. I just wish we could get our politicians more aware of taking care of our earth,but it doesn't seem to be that important to most people so we continue to abuse our planet.

April 23rd
Very typical spring weather pattern setting up,amplification takes place across the country.
Troughs in the west and east set the stage for unsettled cool wet weather for the coming week,while high pressure sets up shop in the central part of the country,and this looks to be come blocked next week,so not much change in the pattern for most of next week.Don't think we'll be seeing 70's for a while.

April 24th
Increased fire danger today as the system that went by yesterday keeps a strong NW flow with winds gusting 40-50 mph.Winds should start to relax this evening.Quiet on friday,but another system moving in Friday night and Saturday with a lot of wet weather and chance of thunder on Saturday.Quiet on Sunday and Monday,but blocking pattern setting up for at least the first part of next week,and depending on what weather you are under,it will last probably most of next week.
Indications are that it could be very cool and wet at times.We'll see

April 25th
chilly morning down to 37,Strong winds caused some damage around the area,some trees down and damaged houses.
Unsettle weekend,rain tomorrow showers on Sunday and cool with winds off the cold ocean.
Next week looks to be below normal with some possible wet weather mid-week.
I'll be in Las Vegas,so expect some much warmer temps there.

Showers and thunder this morning,already had one loud boom.Upper low has really destabilized the atmosphere,lots of showers and some thunder through the morning and to the evening. Should start dry out late today.

Looking at radar,it appears showers are moving in quicker than expected. It was first thought to arrive by 10 or 11 pm.
Showers are already into western New England,so expect to see showers by8 or 9 pm

Hi,jus,
Yeh,it doesn't sound like much,just enough to soak the gardens and yard.
I am sure the people out there are on edge.

It must be awful at this time of year out there when you hear about the increasing risk warnings.
I would think it would be hard to sleep at night

Ha ha, that's a lot of posts! Hope that outbreak does NOT happen. Not sure if I should give dau a heads up in OKC yet. Sooooo glad they got that shelter!

You must have our garden variety T-storms we had yesterday. They weren't bad at all. But today is quite chilly.

Stay well!

Its been a fairly quiet tornado season,but it looks like it may be a dangerous couple of days in the Southern and Central Plains. I hope it doesn't pan out.We may even hear the rumble of thunder tonight,the first of the season for us if it comes to pass.

So a great day for our city yesterday,everything went off without a hitch,it was inspiring,emotional,uplifting and it couldn't have been better.Hats off to all the volunteers,all the fans along the route who cheered everyone on, and to all the runners who all ran with a purpose to prove to those who attack us,you can't win,you may hurt us,but all that does is strengthen our resolve.

so for Patriots day, there were no incidents.
An American won,the first time since 1983 an American male has won.
The Red Sox lost,but they almost came back 7-6,so the day was a good day.
Hopefully we can get back to enjoying this day as before in the years to come.
