Uh oh. The temperature is expected to dip to 46 during the night tonight. I'd better make sure the windows are closed.

Lately, days have been open window wonderful. Lots of sunshine and low humidity. Hopefully I'll still be able to open the windows sometime tomorrow morning.

We have a storm heading our way. I hope it holds off so the kiddies can have their night. It is going to be more wind than rain. And the temps are dropping as I sit here and type.

Right now our city is in mourning due to the death of our recent mayor. He served longer than any other mayor and was the first Italian American mayor. He managed to break the Irish stranglehold that this city had going. Fortunately, his services will be private, which is a good thing. They will be during the storm.

I need to get a move on. Have several errands to run.

It was around 50 and dry while the trick-or-treaters roamed the neighborhood. Just started to sprinkle as the last of the kiddos were heading home. Himself and I sat out on the porch the entire time handing stuff out and commenting on costumes. LOTS of costumes. 355 kid worth of costumes!

Snow levels down to 4500 feet...4-8 inches of snow in the passes are expected. Getting my winter boots out and hope I can wear them!

Down to 30F here along the Mississippi, and still very windy. Not as many trick or treaters as we had last year.

So you are not going to Florida for the winter?

What level are you at?

Well you may get your wish. I will keep your fingers crossed for you.

I am hooked up with a weather alert system that sends me weather alerts. My information comes from a meteorological station that is located right in my neighborhood. They keep sending me coastal flood and very high wind warnings. Considering I am only a block from the Atlantic Ocean, I do pay attention to it.

Scary. I can hear the winds. We have a totally dead tree out in front of the building. I hope there is no car parked next to it. Because with the wind gusts that are predicted, I doubt that tree is going to be standing by the end of this storm.

I have notified the city about it. They sent someone out to look at it and put a big orange circle on it. That means that the tree is on the schedule to be removed. But when is the question.
