  • I'm Back!

    Hi everyone.

    I have lots of pictures from The Race to Erase MS Gala to show you, but I’ll leave that for a separate post.

    Thanks for keeping the blog active while I was gone.  I can see the spam is back full force.  I’ve addressed it with the dot come folks, and hopefully they can help.  I’m the only one that gets in there on a somewhat regular basis, and I delete when I can.  I know it’s frustrating. 

    And thank you for all your comments covering the weather in your area!  I thought that was fantastic!  I realize that this is called a “weather blog” but from the very beginning I wanted to share other stories/ideas from my every day life and some of the people I work with.    That is not going to change!

    So let’s start off with weather.  We had our first tropical storm of the season named Alberto off the southeast coast.   The tropical season officially begins June 1st, but it’s not unheard of to see storms form before then.  Alberto is almost gone, and is drifting off to sea.

    We have a slight risk for severe weather today across the Northern Plains and the southeast coast.    Strong winds and hail will be the primary risk, but an isolated tornado is not out of the question.

    And it’s hot hot hot across the Southwest where we could see some record highs today:

    Here in the northeast, it’s been pretty gloomy, and it’s going to continue to be somewhat unsettled heading into the long weekend.

    That’s it for now.  Let me know what it’s doing outside your window!

    I will post those pictures from Los Angeles this afternoon, so keep checking back!

My part of Iowa was in the "bullseye" for awhile, but with each revision the red spot crept east. We only got some much needed rain in N. Central Iowa.
