Today will bring a mix of sun and cloud with a 40% chance of showers this morning then clearing this morning. The wind will be northerly at 20 km/h (12 mph) gusting to 40 km/h (25 mph). A high of 18C(64F) is expected. UV index 6 or high.
Tonight will be clear with a northerly wind at 20 km/h (12 mph) gusting to 40 km/h (25 mph) then becoming light late this evening. The overnight low will be 6C(43F).
------------------------------------------------- -------
last night we had a really strong wind storm with sustained winds of 100kn/hr(60mph). Trees were knocked down, a windmill at our island park had the blades ripped off and being garbage and recycle pick up this morning everyone was scrambling to recover the waste from the streets. Electric poles were down in some areas and some `35 homes are still without power. The storm was caused by a cold front moving into the area after yesterdays high of 29C. I was in my bathroom doing my Dorthy domestic duties and missed the pick up.
A trip to the doctor confirmed the Queens thoughts that i am suffering from the onset of dementia. His diagnosis is thta it's vascular dementia caused by my series of strokes and tias. It shouldn't worsen if I don't suffer any more stroke. The doctor is setting up a heart MIR to check on the clot that was seen in my heart. If that clot is gone then I can quit the coumadin treatment any the dementia shouldn't worsen. The doctor is also setting an appointment with a seniors specialist to confirm his diagnonis. I guess that's why I've been losing so many posts lately.

Good Morning, Tony!

Wow, sounds like you had quite the unexpected wind gales last night! Hope there wasn't too much resulting damage.

Thankfully, yesterday afternoon, we escaped any thunderboomers, from a nasty system sweeping through, and received only heavy downpours. It made for happy lawns, gardens and me! When it comes to t'storms, I'm a definitely a longtime scaredy cat. LOL!

You're not alone when it comes to slight "vascular dementia" setting in as a result from a stroke or strokes. My hubby has permanent long and short term memory loss, resulting from his stroke in 2008, but manages to do a great job in overcoming it as best as possible. I'm proud of what he's managed to accomplish on all fronts and the same applies to you. It's best to take things day by day.

I certainly echo Alley's advice or recommendation about remaining on some sort of blood thinner, given your recent medical history, etc. An ounce of prevention ... and all that. Many times these days, nurses give more sound and thorough advice than some doctors. Nevertheless, hope all goes well with your upcoming MRI and the best decision will be made concerning the outcome.

Good morning Tony. Don't like the idea of you going off your coumadin for any reason. Hope they give you theraputic Plavix in its place. As long as your history of strokes is prevalent and a true cause of those are not found, I would continue on some form of blood thinner as we do with most heart patients here who require it.

We all suffer memory loss as we get older so until the specialist determines that indeed you do have vascular dementia, I would not unnecessarily worry about it.

Sorry to hear about all the damage the storm brought to your area. So far we have been lucky with no storms coming through but that can change quickly when some bad storms pass through MI on their way here.

Well dear one, have a great day and take care of yourself.
