    Above Average & Sunny

    Quite a change in line for the next six to seven days here along the Ohio/Michigan border. Sunny and warm......above-average temps, near 80F by the weekend. Just slid out of the 5th wettest September on record.

    It's gonna be absolutely gorgeous this weekend. Sunny, highs in the low 80s, and peak fall foliage.

    Apparently we're supposed to have another wicked winter though. So I'm enjoying this nice weather while it lasts. I RJ'd today and am about to head out for a bike ride.

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    We had wet stuff falling from the sky. I'm not sure what it was, but I do know it was strange enough that they postphoned the local baseball game for it. I guess they determined it was safe to come into contact with the strange wet stuff, because they finished the game.

    However, more of the strange wet stuff was expected Sunday, so they decided not to play at the local ballpark last night.

    Near-normal temps here in the lower Great Lakes (and NW Ohio). Cool nights down near 40F, daytime temps about 55F to 60F. Saturday was very windy (gusts near 50 MPH ). Not so windy this morning.

    Still no hard freeze. I did see that the upper Great Lakes will be seeing some snow flurries.

    Hard to believe, Thanksgiving Day (in the USA) is only five-and-a-half weeks away.

    Winter is coming....

    41 this AM, and the forecast for the week is ugly...

    I'm surprised that this is mid-Oct and a possible tropical storm system is forming off SW Florida. Really, that's just too much this late in the year.

    Yesterday it was 90. Today the high is predicted around 65. Fall is here!!

    I like fall weather. Cool, sometimes breezy, with mornings that really wake up the senses and nights that are pleasant.

    Rain all day. Dang. Yesterday the kid and I spent several hours cutting back shrubs and pulling up plants, preparing for the upcoming termite treatment around the foundation. We had planned to finish today, but that ain't happening...

    The crazy fall of 2011 continues. After a nasty week of rain and wind with temps in the 40's, it was in the 70's today and supposed to be in the mid 70's again tomorrow. Back to more "normal" fall weather this upcoming week with sun and highs in the 50's and lows in the 30's. Loving the long fall this year!

    So, I'm driving home from work to let the dogs out - maybe a ten minute drive. Up the hill, I noticed that the rain was starting to stick to my windshield.



    Uh oh.

    Five minutes later, I get home, and ...

    Well, your doggie seems to be enjoying the snow.

    On a related note, the cats and I are hoping to spend the next several afternoons by the pool, working on our tans.

    6-10 inches of snow in the mid-Atlantic this weekend... that and the 6 inches of snow that hit Denver after an 80 degree day, seems early to hear about all of this. After being near 80 here in Central IL on Wednesday, back to 40's and 50's this weekend.

    No Snow For Me!

    Cold temps here in NW Ohio on this late-October morning. The ole' thermo-meter showing a crisp and nipply 30F. It is actually warmer in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan this morning! But no snow in our forecast. As yacked-on before, this end of Lake Erie doesn't get much "lake effect" snow. Buffalo residents probably remember a few years ago when they were blasted with late October now.....measured in feet, not inches.

    I'm sure there are people who were just in Cancun and had to evacuate who are cursing the National Hurricane Center after Rina limped away and dissipated. Hey, it happens. Too many people take these kinds of cases as an excuse to ignore warnings down the road.

    Rj reports that high winds preceeding a coldish-front wreaked havoc with his golf game on his golf trip a couple hours east of where we live.

    I'm reporting that high winds blew my Halloween decorations all over the place this morning.

    We had a couple of inches of snow last night, and (unlike some parts of the region) our power stayed on.

    Today, with the sun out and the temperatures above freezing, the snow is melting off the tree branches and falling in clumps to the ground. If I wait a few hours, I won't even need to clear the snow off my car, as it will all be gone... which is fine with me. There are still plenty of leaves to be raked.

    Alas... we seem to be getting a weekly Wednesday snow dump here in Colo.

    We're having great fall weather last week & this week.

    Low is in the upper 30s/low 40s and the high is in the lower 60s.

    My hometown had it's 3rd largest snowfall since records have been kept on Saturday/Sunday (22.4 inches), so I spent my first morning in my new house shoveling after moving the previous day. The community where I work still has almost 50% of residents without power going on 4 days now (statewide still 81,000 without power, down from a peak of about 300,000).

    Typical scene 'round town right now:
