Will be a perfect 87 today. Yay!

I'm so glad the horrible, blistering summers are over and we have 9 months of perfect weather again.

Very weird at the moment. I was in the garden last weekend in glorious sunshine, when I looked into next door's garden and saw it was raining there!!!! The houses are detached but there's only about 5 feet between them!

It's quite nice autumnal weather here in the north-west of England. The leaves on the trees are starting to change colour and fall. It's sunny but a bit "nippy" - 12 degrees centigrade (53.6 deg F). Definitely time to think about getting out the winter woollies.

I hope those of you in the area of the hurricane have all escaped harm.

We came through the hurricane fine, although many in our area lost power and/or were flooded. We got 10 to 12 inches of rain from last Friday night through Saturday.

Here's a drone video of downtown Norfolk, across the river from us. The neighborhood called The Hague is very close to where I used to work. The street in front of the houses is under water and merges with the creek.

We had frost this morning. A thin thin coat of ice on the wind-screen! Awwkk! It is up to a very comfortable 52F now.

While out driving my daughter and I stopped to take some pictures as the red in the trees is finally coming out. Enough to match Rocks picture!

Glad to read that you are fine. That video, !

I notice the video is "Courtesy: Norfolk Dept. of Emergency Management". That's a great idea for the the Dept. of Emergency Management to use drone cameras.

Wow, what a video. So much damage and clean-up. Thank goodness your area was spared the brunt of the storm. I feel bad for those who lost anything, especially life.

Apparently, here in the PNW, now we're supposed to get a hurricane tomorrow. I honestly don't know what to think about it. I don't know if all the weather reports are nothing but hype or if I'm just being more realistic about this upcoming storm. I've seen some bad storms up here, so this one is going to have to be really bad to get my attention. Well, we'll find out.


However, I can't believe it will be anything close to what the people in Haiti, Florida and South Carolina went though.

The National Weather Service has no reason to hype anything. The important thing to remember is that forecasts are good but not perfect. We were forecast to get 2 inches of rain, but a cold front came in later than expected, so the storm went further north than expected. We ended up getting 10 inches of rain in about 18 hours.

We always prepare as if we'll need to be on our own for a week. Better safe than sorry.

Edit to add: DH, who was a meteorologist in the Navy and taught it in high school, says there are no hurricanes that far north. It's just a big storm.
