A little about my self -

I joined weather Underground in August of 2005 right after they opened the blogging feature. I have been a weather hobbyist since the middle 60's when I lived on the west coast of Florida, north of the Tampa Bay area. I currently live in a small community in central Illinois.

I have been through numerous Hurricanes during my life time. The worse being Hurricane Camille in August 17,1969, A Cat 5, where the eye passed over the location I was at. That being Biloxi, Ms when I was in the USAF stationed at Keesler AFB.

Hey, wab? You got a spare pair of longjohns? lol

I thought I'd stepped through a dimensional portal when I went out to get the paper around 5:30 this morning. Compared to the hot and humid weather we've been having, that 60F felt like 40!

It's up to about 84 now but, dang....

Hi, Wab

We didn't get any bad weather, thank heavens. We didn't even get much rain. There was only about .15 of an inch in the gauge this a.m. That was from all day yesterday and last night.

I thought we might get some storms over night but they passed us by.

The sun is now peeping out and the high for today is only supposed to get to 83 or so. Lovely.

Sorry....

I have about had my fill of salads, cold ham, etc. I am ready for comfort foods. Things that require the use of an oven. I do about anything to avoid using the oven in the summer. It just heats up the house too much. Our window unit just can't handle it.

Temps weren't bad here but the humidity has been. I'm looking forward to some cool fall weather. And I'm craving 'winter' foods. Soups, stews, roasts, etc.

Hi, wab. Good to see you got a little more rain and no reported tornado damage.

59? That's a big change from those triple digits you've been getting.

Glad to hear that there were no injuries in that incidence. It does seem to happen all too often these days.

Back when you and I were in school, a fist fight and scuffle was about the extent of it.

Sandi .. yes the shootings are happening more often .. schools gang areas of large cities have installed metal detectors and have armed police patrolling them ..

This time no one was hurt, before a teacher tackled the kid and disarmed him ...

Happy day sandiquiz:) I find tomorrow nipping at my heals..

Wab~ Amazing there was no injuries. Too many times that is all too deadly.

We had a dude die his hair orange, dressed up like the joker then took the bus to the movie theater. Welcome to hot sand & humid..

Hi Wabit'

Oh, dear, those school shootings seem to be happening far too often... I hope no one was hurt, and do wonder whether the gun culture over there is part of the problem. We may have the odd disturbance in schools here, but it is usually a stabbing and not gun shot.

Have a great weekend, and yes, I am up early!

The tootsies got cold, huh?

It's 85F outside right now, with a heat index of 92F. I've got socks on 'cause our office is like a meat locker. You could hang sides of beef in this place.

Wow, wab... a high of 68 Sat? You might just have to put some socks on!

Those water temps are dropping a bit. From that churning, wave action I presume?

Skye wins FOIST :)
Wab, you better get that blankie back from Sandi! Gonna get brrrrr again.
Same ULL that Skye mentioned has given us severe thunderstorm warnings two nights in a row. It smells like TS again and pool is filled with ants. Must be the new blob... What do you think?

Too bad you didn't get more. Poured here twice today. The ULL keeps pulling low clouds up from the ssw.
