    Crazy weather this morning!

    For many of us in the Mid West we are having some crazy spring storms... but it is the end of October! Many intersections and low sections of the streets are flooded, and the power has flickered on and off. Some of the schools around the area are not having classes today because of power outages and there must have been several accidents because the fire trucks and police cars are going every direction.

    Have you seen the move “The Day After Tomorrow”

    Just typical Lake Erie weather over here now; overcast and drizzling. Yesterday was a gorgeous day, though.

    We had a persistent haze yesterday that lasted most of the day. Really quite rare for these parts. Today it is 69F and overcast. I'm ready for a little cold weather, to be honest.

    Its Global Warming-- nothing too excitng on the East Coast, just typical fall weather in the Nation's Capital. There is a piece in the local paper about the Easern Shore in MD which is experiencing tides about 1 1/2 feet above normal. I would not be surprised if we begin to experience more "strange" weather as the planet warms up in the coming years.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    It's a hot & humid 88 degrees down here in San Antonio. We have a "less hot" front blowing through looks like on Monday to bring us down to our normal fall temperatures, followed by a cool front that will put us in the low 60s for highs.

    I'm so sick of hot.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    Warm and humid here, with a likelihood of thunder later, and a weird, humid, windless, reddish sunrise...("red sky at morning..." and all that). I love thunderstorms, but at the end of October? Looking forward to heaps of snow.
    I don't dream. I plan.

    We have to usual October weather here, sunny, VERY windy and cool, while a bank of snow clouds stay over the mountains teasing me.
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    it was raining like all heck here in Chicagoland this morning. Not the greatest if you have to take the dog for a walk.

    It's unseasonably warm though - upper 70s
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.
