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.

So much for all the screaming yesterday from the local news/weather about TEMPS TONIGHT WILL GET DOWN TO FREEZING AND WE MAY BREAK THE RECORD LOW!!!! FOR GOD'S SAKE, BRING YOUR PETS IN AND COVER YOUR PLANTS!!!! ANTIFREEZE YOUR VEHICLE!!!! WE'RE ALL GONNA FREEZE TO DEATH!!!!


We didn't even get a skim of ice on the birdbath. It was cold out there, yeah, but....


lol .. they do over do it a bit sometimes .. even at freezing (32 degrees) animals do quite well outside .. now if the temps drop more then that .. as long as they have shelter to get out of the wind ..

Eko was rolling in the snow yesterday and after over 2 hours outside in freezing temps didn't want in ..

puppy training coming along slowly .. Eko is in her teenage age equivalent .. so she is being a bit stubborn right now ..

her biggest problem is she loves people .. anyone .. doesn't matter who .. have never seen a GSD so friendly out of its pack realm .. she just wants to play with everyone .. and doesn't always want to work when she is suppose to ..

she is having a great time running through the piles of leaves in the yard .. if you make a pile she will burrow under it so only her head is showing ..

just the opposite of you today .. we are going from the 50's down to the teens verses the normal heating during the day .. rain/snow mix to the northwest .. should be a few hours before getting to us .. with the falling temperatures it might be snow .. ..

Hey, wab.

There's just no pleasing you, is there? First, it's the lack of rain. Now, you want the sun back!

I do like that CoCoRaHS rain gauge. I've had mine about two years now, I think. I can see it from the side window in the living room and it is easy to get a good idea of how much rain we've had without having to go outside.

No rain for us today and I'm ready to get the laundry going.


Bug .. still need the rain but not the cloudy overcast on days with no rain .. need the sun so my solar panel will heat up .. reduces the amount my furnace runs .. on days like today with the temp in the 50's it will put out enough heat my furnace won't run until around 4 this afternoon ..

We are on the warm side of the front and rain is the only thing we will get .. on the cold side snow totals of 5 to 7 inches are possible in some areas ..

the low is expected to track north into Wisconsin ..

as the front passes temps will drop and highs only in the mid 40's are expected ..

The wedding and reception were nice and I even had some extra time, beforehand, to wander the graveyard.

It was a bit chilly this morning but is warming up pretty well and the sun is shining.

Morning Wabit....
The sun is shining, the temperature is a cool 6 (43) and I cannot believe how green the trees along my house are. I am seeing photos on WU of lots of fall colour, but here...it is mad! The horse chestnuts have gone golden, as have many mountain ash, but the oak and big ash trees are still in full leaf and green!!
Hope you have a great Sunday ....:-)

Oh, rats, wab. I didn't even think of that! We have oodles of quarters in the change box.

I'll try to remember that if it happens again next year.

We got an inch of rain last night and things are already clearing out. It'll be fine for the wedding.

This is our niece's second go-round, so it's not supposed to be a big whoop-de-do, like her first one. The reception is at a local brew house with heavy 'horse derves' and open bar.

I love the church the service will be held in. It's one of Charleston's oldest congregations and the graveyard is really, really cool! Lots of old slate headstones with skulls and things on them. I've spent quite a bit of time wandering that graveyard.

Hey, wab.

Rabbits, rabbits, rabbits and a happy November. Where did October go?

We're looking at some rain overnight. I just washed a couple of loads and hung them inside, as I doubt I'll be able to get much out tomorrow. It may take a while for the weather to clear out and we have a wedding to go to tomorrow afternoon.

I may have to wait until Sunday to finish it up. Which is fine. I took this afternoon off and got some errands done. I have nowhere else I need to go this weekend.

We had one lone little Trick-or-Treater last night. I felt so bad that I didn't have anything to give him. He was the first one we've seen in over 10 years. I quit buying candy a long time ago.

I think they came by to see the neighbor across the street. He was with his daddy. Only about 3 or so and dressed up like a skeleton. He was so cute. I apologized to Dad and just made a big deal out of how scary he was and I don't think it made too much difference to the little guy. He was grinning from ear to ear.


Bug .. we live in the country and never get any trick or treaters either .. you should have given him a couple of quarters .. did that one time here ..

Have fun at the wedding !! hope the weather isn't too bad when they exit the church ..
