Brrrrr it's real cold here tonight in SE S.D. It's starting to drizzle / sleet outside now. Just got back from taking the dog for a walk & the wind feels like it cuts right through you.

It has been the most spectacular day....sunny, not a cloud in the light blue sky and a warm 23c

Here on the edge of the Great Dismal Swamp, it is mighty dreary. Hurricane off shore and southeast of us...cold front bearin' down on us from the west. Likely will rain off and on for a couple days. Some wind but so far not bad. A mite chilly. I hope we don't lose power...although we will get by even if that happens. Tricky getting a fire going outside when it's rainy and windy like this, but it can be done.

We have a light breeze going right now. The temp is in the mid 50's. Just waiting to see what Sandy is going to do.

We are at the lower edge of the projected path/cone. It is starting to drizzle outside already. The forecast for us is heavy rain and wind starting tonight through Tuesday. Possible 4.5 - 8" total rain fall over the next few days. We're as prepared as we can be.

All you folks in the "cone" - it would be good to hear from you via the "MIA" thread after the storm passes. Be assured that we will be thinking of you and hoping for the best. Hope Sandy disappoints the weather people's forecasting.

Stay safe, Dave, & folks on the east coast.

Had a 3.9 earthquake this morning. Small quake, but always rattles the nerves. Another hot day - about 88 degrees.

So far very wet, but it's nice soft rain, almost a light fog. It's 5 degrees above freezing and supposed to get to 50F.
