Hot chocolate is on the stove and waiting for you.
I just want to take a minute to say thank you for all of the wonderful ideas that were posted on the blog yesterday. I will take these ideas to the powers that be. This will give us some homework for the winter.
This morning is starting off on a blustery note. I was wondering if I was going to wake up in Oz. The temperatures have warmed up. The high yesterday was 47º with a low of around 38º. Someone asked about the snow forecast for the weekend. I will explain how we predict our weather, if that is even possible. When I see rain in the forecast and the temperatures for the lower elevations are in the 40s, I can usually estimate we will be 15 to 20 degrees colder. That would usually make it cold enough for our precipitation to turn to snow. That is not always the case. Sometimes we are in an inversion and we are actually warmer then the valley. This being the reason I always suggest to come prepared for anything. The weather for the weekend is calling for rain and lower temperatures. If I was a bettin' girl, I would say we will see some snow.
