Looks like we might get some storms tomorrow evening, severe. Severe enough some events have been moved about or canceled. Supposed to get it between 4 pm and 1 am, high possibility of wind, large hail and they even said the "T" word around here on the weather warning.

I'll get my stuff done early and am already making sure my rechargable lights are charged. If the power goes out, I'll have light enough to get around a bit and read, or just get tucked up in bed and sleep through it. I once slept through a medium good earthquake.

All three of us girls will be fine and safe inside.

Stay safe, Imp!
Our forecasters have been toying with the "S" word for this weekend. Not a serious amount but maybe a few flakes, or more likely "groppel" aka ice pellets. They are small and biting but nothing like the prospect of large hail. We don't get large hail or "T"s here and I hope that never changes!

The leaves are turning now in spite of the mostly unseasonably warm weather. I hope our cold windy weekend doesn't tear them all off, as sometimes happens, but instead stay pretty for awhile.

The forecast high for tomorrow is just 37F and winds will be gusting 40 mph from NW for several days, so it will be darn chilly. But later in the week we're back up into the 60's for several days. I guess when they take the average it will look like a 'normal' year.

Thanks bower, we should weather it just fine enough. This old house is most of a hundred years old and has rode out many a storm. Might sound funny, but it is a house with a good nature.

I just do not care for the weather folk getting a bit excited at this time of year- they usually do not get excitable much, so I will be sensible ( for once) and plan to be inside and snug by 4 pm this afternoon.
