  • Severe storms for the Northeast and Hello Dolly!

    Hi everyone!

    How was your weekend?   Hard to believe we’re into the month of September….I’m preparing myself for Matthew’s first day of Kindergarten on Thursday.   Yikes.  Send some good vibes and lots of kleenex over the next few days.

    Taking my mind of his first day of school, let’s talk about weather.

    We’re expecting strong to severe storms from the eastern Ohio Valley into Pennsylvania and western New York later today.  Large hail and damaging winds are the primary concerns, however, an isolated tornado is also possible:

    It sure feels like summertime for much of the country.  Temperatures from the Central Plains into the Central Rockies will be 10-15 degrees above average .  Dry conditions are elevating the wildfire risk in the Rockies.

    And we’re full steam ahead into the peak season in the tropics.  In the Bay of Campeche, minimal Tropical Storm Dolly is forecast to move into Mexico tonight, and will have no impact on the U.S, but will bring a lot of rain and wind to Mexico:

    And in the Pacific we’re watching Norbert which is moving away from land, but will bring some rainfall, winds and high waves to the coast.

    Talk to you later this week!  Wish me luck dropping Matthew off :(

Hey Janice, it's hard to believe Matthew is starting kindergarten. Where does the time go??? I'm sure he'll do fine & you'll do fine too! I got a big surprise today. I ordered a couple road atlases from Amazon & when I opened the box when I got home from work, I found a big surprise. I got my copy of Freddy & the Big Blizzard. What a great story! I also loved the info at the end of the book. Great checklist. It's terrific! Hey Dan! I let my little guys out into the living room on Monday. I let them in there when I’m home. They have their moments. Sometimes they are good little boys & sometimes they are very bad little boys! At least they haven’t broken anything yet! Margie

Hi Everybody - JD, good luck tomorrow with Matthew's first day of school. He'll be fine, but you may take some time to adjust! A beautiful day in Sonoma! The fog didn't burn off until early afternoon so I was able to get the garden work done without breaking a sweat. Then, the sun came out and the temperature hit a perfect 80 degrees with low humidity! Sam, glad to see that you're able to post. I've missed your wit and sense of humor! Margie, give us an update on the 'boys'! Be safe - Dan

Fall is definitely on the horizon. 63 outside at 2pm and an anemic sun. My heat came on this morning about 5am for the first time in a long while. Guess I'll turn the thermostat down to 60 and put an end to that. My wife made a killer spaghetti dinner last night. Used spaghetti squash instead of noodles. She did overdo the chili peppers though! hot, hot. Hope all is well with you all. Take care, Sam

J.D. Blessings on you as you drop Mathew off to school. He will do fine, I know it is his Mother that will need some encouragement. So, J.D., get a manicure or pedicure, something for yourself while he is off to school, and you will feel better about the whole situation. Each day will get easier for both of you. Greetings to all bloggers. Have a nice evening. Audrey
