sounds like us!! lol
We've been in the 70's and a cold front came through. Luckily, we just got severe storms, high winds and power flashes. Lots of flash and wind damage, but, thankfully, no tornado's this time. A lot of warning with lots of rotation last night, but, not twisters as of this morning. That may change as the sun comes up and damage is checked.

I believe I am in the calm before the storm right now, National Weather Service is predicting wind gusts up to 65 mph and warning of potential power outages.

Strong winds have passed. Pretty nice here, like on the other side of the Potomac, too.
Happy cooking, Marty.

Mild, but very high winds, and lots of rain.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

It was pretty warm for a couple of days...up to 72 Monday...but we've had high winds all day, with gusts up to 60 mph, and the temp has now dropped to 49.

Wish you all could have seen the really cool sight I saw today. We have a thickly wooded area behind our house (north side) that's opens onto an open field, bordered on the far side by more thick woods and a pond.
It's a perfect hunting area for our pair of red-tailed hawks.
Today, as I was fixing my hair, I just happened to look out my north-facing patio doors in time to see the biggest one coming in for a landing in the top of one of our ancient oak trees. I'm assuming you know that when a big bird like this comes in for a landing, he lift's his wings as sort of a parachute to help him land.
About that time, a huge wind gust hit his 5-6 foot wing span and actually blew him backwards, away from the tree.
What a sight, with those enormous wings spread open!
Anyway, he quickly recovered, and flew off in the direction of the wind. Smart bird.

An eagle is larger, they say. I can't imagine it.
We get by with a little help from our friends

Looks like the storms/tornados took 8 lifes so for in a little town in Oklahoma last night. Quite a few people injured also. Sad.
