83F for a high today in SE South Dakota. The humidity was not so bad, which made it tolerable.

About 10 days ago there was a earthquake in Pierre, S.D. (In the middle of the state, about 4 hours west of here) It was a mild one, no fatalities. Very rare.

Right now it's 67 grey and raining and VERY windy. But last night,toward morning, I thought Irene had already arrived!! Thundering rain and wind, sounded like a freight train, and woke me up.

Nice now, but Irene is likely to dump a bunch of rain on us this weekend! Glad I'm not right along the coast

Yep, looks like Irene will either make landfall near you or pass very closely. I imagine it should start getting windy here some time today. Just got my roof fixed a week ago. Now comes the testing of it.

89 at 9 a.m. The box fan in the window is keeping me comfortable so far, but the high is supposed to get to 97 so I'll have to switch to a/c soon enough.

It appears we had a decent aftershock this morning, though I was asleep and missed it.

All overcast today with storms in the area. Going to be working on hurricane prep today and tomorrow.

9:15 and 68 degrees already...very smoky. The valley traps the smoke from the fires, with no wind it just sits. But, with no wind the fires don't travel.

Batten down the hatches all you folks on the east coast. Good luck!

I'm 300+ miles away from the storm and the breeze is picking up and it looks like the very outer bands will be raining on me within the next hour or so. I'm glad this one missed me and I wish everyone on the east coast the best. DON'T take it lightly, I saw what Andrew and Charlie did. Prepare for the worst and hope for the best
