If you are like me, you have put away your sweaters & heavy weather gear and brought out the shorts & warm weather attire. Not so fast Gang. Mother Nature is showing who’s in charge as technically the calendar says it’s still WINTER. Denver has light snow & 29 degrees tonight while a major Nor’Easter could bring 1-2 FEET of snow to the major cities of the Northeast this weekend. Reminds me many years ago, my late wife & I did out usual Easter Drive home to Indiana for Easter. It was April 7th and Chicago received 5-8” of the heaviest, wet snow that I ever saw. It can happen this late, it has happened even later despite what many folks claim to have “never seen this before”. Fortunately for us, the higher sun angle will temper the chill but we may need to worry about some 30s on the North Shore late this weekend.
It’s nights like tonight that I feel TOTALLY happy in retirement. More storms to challenge the forecasters, more worry for the many water logged homeowners across the Lake. No longer my worry, no longer my stress. Just got back from my 1st post retirement fishing trip with Capt. Hylton & it was a blast! I know many viewers didn’t want me to go, but I know I made the correct decision. I like how our FOX 8 Weather Team handled the recent flood and they have so much more social media postings than I ever could or would. I’m enjoying my evenings free to finally watch programs I’ve never seen. Still haven’t mastered using the DVR Yet! Give gramps some time!
Saw an article regarding Attorney General Lynch wanting to prosecute (more like persecute) the Climate “Deniers”. This from the Land of the Free & Home of the Brave. Don’t think like us, don’t believe like us, we will silence the opposition. And they wonder why a Donald Trump keeps winning?
