Feb 5, 2012: Happy National Weatherperson's Day!!!
and Happy Superbowl Sunday!!! Go Giants!!!!




And we have Invest 90 to watch. It is way too early for this right?






Jan 31, 2012:
Nolan and I started the day at the polls, I voted for my pick of GOP Presidential canidates. I picked Rick Santorum but I am pretty sure he will not win the nomination; however I think he should. There is nothing wrong with him and while I will support Newt or Mitt if they win, they are flawed. Oh well... I did my duty and took my grandson to witness Democracy in Action.
Then we went to Two Jays for Breakfast then to Lion Country Safari. I took Rylee there when she was 3 and she loved it. So got to take Noly there too.

I took 95 pictures today but I promise I will try to keep it down to 20 to upload here on my blog! LOL

Here are my "weather" maps

I found out, these maps are measuring fire hazard and soil moisture, not necessary drought according to rainfall.

Hi Everyone,

NEw, Sandi, Scott, Ylee, thank you for stopping by.

Yes today is really a "Friday" for me since I am using PTO time tomorrow (Personal Paid Time Off)

Hubby's sister & Bro in Law are really nice people.. they should arrive tonight.
Their grown kids are staying with their friends who still live here...

The weather is going to stink this weekend.
It has rained all week, over 3" so far for my neighborhood and raining all day today.

Also suppose to get cold tomorrow night and Sunday.. well "cool" to most of you!

I don't want Scott to get upset that I am calling "cold" a low of 50 degrees F ! LOL


Really busy today at work and it is
a situation I am not going to talk about on line.


next week is "long" week so glad I have tomorrow off!

I will check back in when I can... I do need to set up a new blog thread.. maybe this afternoon if I make it back.

Enjoy your day.

GM,gamma,at work and also going downhill,not to mention not feeling too well either,but work is what it is,somedays you feel you should have just pulled the covers up over you and ignored the clock.
We are all set for our first real winter weekend,with snow on Saturday and frigid below zero windchills for Sunday night and Monday.I think we can handle this,since there have been too few winter weekends like this,and warms up again on Tuesday.

Rob, Glad yours was good, mine was delicious too!!! you are welcome.

Hi Ylee, We will miss you. I know you enjoy being off work for a few days but when you are not at work we don't hear from you.
enjoy your time off this weekend!!!


Good morning and I am back at the job...
and everything is going downhill fast..

I won't say more than that....


Not much to report today, not sure how much I will be around the next 2 days because I may be really busy.

Hope you all are having a good week.

Oh Scott, that is miserable, I don't think I could handle temps that cold!


Oh well, tonight is a "work night" because tomorrow at 5:30am my alarm goes off...

We have a family function here Sunday with hubby's sister's family.. So I am taking Sat off just to make sure I have the house ready...
Plus I don't want to be exhausted with weekend company (they are coming Friday night and staying with us until Sunday)...

So at least only a 2 long day work week...

Enjoy your evening!

Another cold (rather colder) wave coming. Temps should drop back to singles again (or lower). This just will not end!!!

What makes it so bad is it does not drop for a few days then warm up. It stays between 0F and 20F day and night. Can´t even wash our filthy cars which are covered in road salt. Forecast is now at least another week of sub-freezing temps.

It is all about money for the school districts.

Don't worry. Rylee will thank you one day. Really!

Heatwave today. 13 degrees F this morning but had some snow and it is damp and slushy. I'd rather have the colder but dry.

Ylee, the stuff they expect 6 yr olds to know today is so much more than
what my kids had to learn at 6 yrs old back in early 80's..

Yes I understand it is all about the test, and I understand all the stuff she is learning
is stuff she needs to learn..but she is only 6 and in 1st grade..
This is stuff I did not learn until 3rd grade!! back in early 60's... LOL

Gamma, I know how you feel about helping with homework! Our school district is more interested in getting good test scores than actually teaching anything, so they cram them with a lot of stuff and expect them to take it home and finish it there, so we have to play teacher and pick up the slack.

Enjoy your day off tomorrow!

Rob,
You brought tears to my eyes, I don't like being the "homework Gamma"
like my daugher wants me to be...
but she says the other Grandparents do not make her do home work at all...
I want to help ... but it is hard to give up having fun to sitting at the table
and doing math and writing and spelling and reading...
but I think Rylee is smart enough to be a "Super Woman" someday ....
so she must learn her lessons..

I am trying, my daughter depends on me...


But I bought her two new pairs of shoes and a few cute shirts & shorts today ...
and I would "take them back" if she did not do her homework...
Of course I would not take them back...but it worked..
So she had motivation!!!

Jeff, we got more rain this afternoon and this eveing.. I have not checked my rain guages
since this morning..

A February Rain fall like this should really help us out during our "dry season"!

You could market a new line of beer.

LOL
I was thinking Vodka, but whatever the market demands.

Slushy beer?
That deserves consideration.

Gamma,
Congrats on staying on top of Rylee's homework.
Really smart kids require special attention as they get bored.

Out for a while.
Have a great night all!

It rained on and off part of the day, but it cleared up for lunch. A friend of mine and I have been walking to lunch a few days a week, and we were able to get out today. There is a Salad Creations 1 mile from the office, and Panera 1.5 miles away.

Right now, it's pouring out here in Plantation! Very unseasonable - I guess it's still part of ex-90L.

Hi Everyone,

I cannot believe we are still all "red" on the moisture map. my area got 2.3" of rain over the past 2 days and it is saying it did not matter. That is a lot of rainfall.
It should have helped "green" up the map.

OK, I need to go back and really take a look at Jeff's calculations so I can learn how to figure it out!

Scott, hope you get out of the "zero" club soon and warm up..

Rob, I guess he could make "sloshy" beer!

Hi GG, glad you stopped by.

Sandi, I am for sure confused!!!

Hope I did not forget anyone...

busy busy day with Nolan then Rylee.
Nolan and I went out to breakfast then had some shopping/errands to get done...

And Rylee has not been good at doing her homework so I spend 1 1/2 hrs with her helping with homework...
By the time she gets home with her parents it is really not much time except to eat, bath and get ready for bed...
These kids today are learning things so much faster than we did.. It is amazing what they are learning in First Grade!


Really tired tonight so Will probably watch TV in bed and just take it easy.

Enjoy your evening!

From what I understand, Kelvin is simply Celsius, but 0 degrees Kelvin starts at ABSOLUTE ZERO.

The kelvin is the primary unit of measurement in the physical sciences, but is often used in conjunction with the degree Celsius, which has the same magnitude. Absolute zero at 0 K is −273.15 °C (−459.67 °F).

So in other words, water freezes at plus 273.15C.

Yes Sandi. Very confusing!!

Jeff - thanks for the useful tip. I can approximate based on the simple facts I learnt.

4C=40F
10C = 50F
16C=61F
28C=82F

But wait until we all have to go to KELVIN! Then we will all be confused!!

Wed = 16F
Thur = 10F
Friday = 5F
Saturday = 1F
Sunday = 0F
Monday = 0F
Today = 4F

Oh my gosh, we are on the upward swing. Must be GW. LOL. It feels so hot outside. NOT.

The difference is this morning it is snowing. Because no sun is expected the high is forecast to be only 12F.

but in honesty I probably will not learn the new m etrics until
I am forced to learn it along with all the rest of us US Amercians! LOL!!!

I'm used to dealing with Celsius vs Fahrenheit, since my company is based in a country that uses Celsius. I don't know exact values, but I can approximate pretty well. Multiple by 9 and divide by 5 is slightly less than multiplying by 2. And adding 32 is slightly more than adding 30. So in what I call "useful" ranges, you can take your Celsius number, double it, and add 30.

Freezing point of water is 0C. Double it, and you get 0. Add 30, and you get 30. That's pretty close to 32F, which is the real answer. The other way around, if you start at 32F.. Subtract 30 to get 2. Cut it in half, and you get 1. That's pretty close to 0.

It's close enough for "I need a jacket today", and "It's warm out."

Distances are harder for me. I know the math, and have a few reference points. From running, I know 5k is 3.1 miles. From volleyball, I know 3 meters is about 10 feet.

Great; now I'm hungry, and it's three hours until suppertime! :)

If you work on any modern car, evry bolt, screw, and nut on it is metric, as is most everything else with a motor on it, be it tractors, lawn mowers, or ATVs.

Look at your bottle of Red; I bet it's in a 750ml bottle!

Rob and Scott, Yes the Beef Stroganoff, I just got off the stove top and now noodles mixed up with beef mixture...

oh smells so good, I am sure hubby will be in soon to have his dinner plate.


Scott, I remember back in the "Jimmy Carter 70's" we were all being forced into metrics... Gasoline, Liter bottles of Soda, and other nonsence.. but Americans just did not want to change...

and once Regan was elected President it was all over.


edit later: after several platefuls, yes it was so good, we both really enjoyed the taste dish!


Part of me wishes I were more comfortable with a world wide measurement sytem ...
but another part of me says...'Hell NO'''..

but it would be nice for me to not always have to go to a charte to know what my British and European friends are talking about!!! LOL

Oh yes, I remember learning metric in middle school in the early 70´s. The thinking then was "The U.S. will be completely switched over to metric within 10 years."

The only thing that happened within 10 years was metric faded away!

Now that's a great idea. Why didn't I think of it?

It is dripping a bit here at the moment but looks a lot more impressive on radar than what is really hitting the ground.

Ylee, at least you got to see the last part of game that was so exciting.

I don't know much about either team outside their QB and
I love the Manning boys and not fond of Brady at all...

It has been a nice day so far so good.

Rob, I don't think your area or Ogal's area is going to get anything from this system.

Rain picked up in my area and I've gotten an inche of rain so far this morning so that is much welcomed.

The Keys and Miami have probably recived over 2 " in most areas...

Good morning, Gamma! Shame most of the rain is staying south, but I reckon Miami and points south needs it, too!

I also dozed off in the 4th quarter, but woke up in time for Eli's last drive. I think the MVP should have gone to Tuck, as he made the safety in the first half, shook up Brady in the 3rd quarter, and sacked Brady on NE's last drive, eating up enough time to keep the Pats from scoring.

Enjoy your lazy day, if it turns out that way! :)

NEw, I thought aboutyou and how disappointed you would be at the outcome. but it was an exciting game always very close.

Sandi, I wish I could send you both some warm temps for a nice change! We have had the South Florida Winter of my Dreams.. what our winters are suppose to be like down here!
Been loving this winter especially after the last two record cold winters!!!


And already recieved 1" of rain from 90L. This is good because we really need it.
as you can see from the moisture map, Central and South Florida is now red.
The panhandle and north Fla finally got out of the red into the green but we are still red.

Wish some would spread up to central Florida also.

OOPs Scott - I forgot to subtract 32, multiply the result by 5 and then divide by 9!!!

Yes, we need one temperature across the World. We were F until the early 70's, then changed to metrication... base of 100 in money and weights, measurement and temperatures!! The US is didn't change, but their monetary base was 100, so why not change weight, measurement and temp?

I gotta figure out something for dinner tonight.
Leaning towards grilled shrimp on a salad with a creamy chipotle mayo type dressing.

Or maybe I'll go with grilled shrimp w/sweet chili sauce and make an asian dressing with some of the ginger I dug up yesterday.

Forecasting -18C (0F) again tonight. Talk about needing a change!

Quoting airman45:
Wed = 16F
Thur = 10F
Friday = 5F
Saturday = 1F
Sunday = 0F
Today = 0F

We did it again!! The "0" club ROCKS!!!!

I could use some of that warm tropical water your Invest 90 formed in.

Wow Scott - that is cold.... I read it as 0C first time, but 0F is minus 32C!! That is as low as Moscow.... are you sure you didn't move?

Hi Gams - If you are sharing your warmth, I will have a little as well, please, but Scott needs is more than I do, so I won't be greedy!

GM,gamma,glad you enjoyed the game,I was very disappointed in my team,too many mistakes at crucial times,and I was dreading letting Eli getting the ball with time left and it proved out true. He is deadly with the last few minutes of the game.Oh well on to next year,who knows what another year will bring.

Good morning,

Scott, wish I could send you some warm temps just to break your zero cycle! that is cold.

Ogal, Thanks for the report update!

Jeff, I've received .30" of rain so far but in sprinkle form. not really raining very hard.
Most of it is in South Miami and the Keys.
We may miss most of the rain but wish we could get a few inches before it is over.

What a great game last night.. now a nice rainy day to just be lazy!!!

I may get in the kitchen later.. rainy days are a good day to make something good to eat!

You all enjoy your day.

It's dark, overcast, and rainy. Regional radar shows a big blob south of us. It looks like it might just clip us, which means we won't get too much rain from it.

Crown Weather Services
Invest 90L is weaker this morning due to increasing amounts of wind shear. This disturbance will bring 1 to 2 inches of rain to south Florida and the Keys today into tonight. Development into a sub-tropical system is no longer expected. http://www.crownweather.com/?p=6871

What a Game!!!

Those last 3 minutes were so exciting!!!

And the Giants found the victory in a very close game!!


I came from the South and Always loved the Manning Boys, I remember when their Dad
"Archie" from Ole Miss was a Southern Hero in Football.

and now two of his sons are following in his footsteps!

And they are a great family.

Congratulations to the Giants!

and Good game to the New England Pats!

Hi Jeff,

actually I am the last one standing! LOL all the kids and grandkids left at halftime and so did neighbors.. grandkids have school tomorrow and most do have work.

Hubby went to bed; he had been having a good time all afternoon and it caught up with him!


It was a great evening and Madonna's Show was much better than I expected. It was really good.


I will keep an eye on L90 but like you said I think it will hopefully bring rain to South Florida and not much wind..


Good night my friends!

According to Levi32, "not that cold" is an understatement. He says the waters around 90L are warm enough to support development. Luckily, the winds may not..and it only has a little time before it hits land.

Still, as Dr. Masters says in his blog, we may get a few inches of rain, and sustained winds of 20mph somewhere over the state.

Enjoy the big game!
