In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

Chilly Until Tuesday

We had a cold front arrive on Friday morning. The weather was dicey for about an hour during the frontal passage, but there wasn't enough energy for severe weather. That, and the thin frontal boundary only dropped an inch and a half of rain. 

Yesterday, the clouds stayed all day, and the blustery weather required a light coat. Rain was shown on radar, but the dry air at the lower elevations prevented it from reaching the ground. The unseasonal low temperatures never reached beyond the fifties, but the clouds kept away a frost overnight. 

We're supposed to have cooler weather until Tuesday. We'll get a warm front, maybe some rain, and the temperatures will rise afternoon highs in the seventies. By Thursday, we'll be in the eighties, and Friday forecast is for rain. 

It's our Spring. The fronts can last through April, but their effects are usually strong storms, heavy rain and the start of the uncomfortable heat of Summer. I'm not looking forward to the heat, but can only hide from it when I can. I have plenty of sunscreen, will be looking for long sleeve tee-shirts, and hope for no more skin cancer.

    1. We were down to 32 this morning. This will be the last of this cold spell and maybe the last until Fall.
