Lake Effect Weather

This past week we’ve been getting some badly need rain, too late for the farmers, but still needed. The flow of the weather has changed in a snap from summer to autumn with lake effect rain and graupel (precipitation that forms when supercooled droplets of water are collected and freeze on a falling snowflake). Temps have ranged from the middle 50’s for highs and as low as 29° for lows. The clouds have changed over to autumn / winter clouds hanging low in the sky. With that I will pass you off to some photos.

Autumn is Rushing In.

The temps are getting lower. The clouds are getting lower, and the leaves are starting to change. Autumn has started.

Cool this morning with temps at 36°. Enjoy this warm weekend, should be mostly sunny and in the mid to upper 60’s. Next week Autumn really hits where we’ll struggle to get out of the 50’s and a good chance of a hard freeze Tuesday night with temps dipping into the 20’s.

With the lowering of the clouds comes even more brilliant Sunsets and rises.

Another Test

This test is to see if the sticky really is a sticky, and if so, this post should be under the sticky even though it was posted after the sticky.

Lots of sticky stuff going on eh. 🙂

And just for the hell of it, a couple more photos from Alaska.

Almost Ready, Almost

Yes, as the topic says, this blog is almost ready to go live. There will be lots of tweaks to be done yet, but I think it’s mighty close.
