It's like a tropical soup here (current Dew Point of 75) as the remnants of hurricane Nate are passing to the west of me and drawing up moisture from the Gulf and Atlantic..
Expecting storms tonight and into tomorrow from it as it continues to pass by moving towards the north east..

Haven't seen the sun here in central Indiana in about a week.  At least it's nice and cool.
I'm not particularly religious, and I don't really like Muppets, but I do love word play.

Tied the record high of 87 set back in 1919 with yet another record warm low temp of 71 set that same year :o
That should be it for records this week as much cooler temperatures roll in over the weekend ..

Hurricane Ophelia strengthens to major Category 3 storm, barreling toward Ireland :o

Ophelia is now the farthest east an Atlantic major hurricane has existed on record ... the previous record was Hurricane Frances in 1980.

Narrow band came through this morning but we only got about half and inch, the forecast is for more but the radar looks like it's over for the day.

Bitter Cold is a coming and I just finished bringing the seasonal plants inside before temperatures plummet into the low 30s overnight.. :speechless:
It's always a chore trying to get my bedroom setup for housing my late wife's plants (4 small ones, 4 large ones, and a huge pot with Aloes) but I got it done :)
