December 4, 2008: Rainy night and brutal cold headed our way?

  It was a rainy night across West KY.  Strong cold front moved through.  Temperatures fell from 50 degrees to 42 degrees in less than an hour.  Not bad!  It even snowed a little across some of our counties.  Nothing major, though.

Evening satellite showing the storm system moving across our region.  The blue area is higher cloud tops and where
rainfall is falling – thunderstorms, as well.

  The latest update on the farm is that they now say they are going to start the middle of next week.  🙂  Course, I have heard this before!  So, we shall see.

  Waiting on word from Sue – I understand she has a new family member!!!!!!!  CONGRATS to her!  I am surrrrrreeeee she is proud.

  Now, about that cold weather.  A lot of computer models are forecasting very cold temperatures next week.  I am not sure, just yet, how cold it will get here in West KY and South IL.  It could be very cold across the Ohio Valley.  Single digits?  Stay tuned.  Here are a few forecast maps.

And another shot of cold weather after that. 



  Stay tuned on this forecast.  You can also visit my weather blog at www.beaudodson.com


December 3, 2008: Hurry up and wait…

  Well, the guys who are building are foundation were supposed to start last week – then they said this week.  It is Wednesday now and they haven’ returned our calls.  So, will they start this week?  Who knows.

  I guess I am getting anxious to begin.  With winter upon us…we need to get that foundation in.

  Maybe we will hear something later today.  🙂  🙂  We shall keep hope alive!!!!

  Not much else going on.  It was sunny yesterday and we rented a U-Haul and brought some boxes up from Mayfield.  I am going to go through some of our stuff and widdle it down a bit more.  We need to get rid of some items before we move into the new house.  I figured I could do that now – instead of later! 

  We had to spray for spiders, because we saw three brown recluses.  I can NOT stand spiders.  They used to not bother me, but now they do.  I guess that phobia grew on me.  Living on the farm all those years I would imagine that I saw hundreds and hundreds of spiders.  Never bothered me then.  I guess something changed.  🙂  Anyway, I set off like six foggers around the boxes.  I figure that would kill anything living inside of them.  Once the dust settles I can start going through each box.  I think I will give it a day or two.  😉

  Finals start later this week.  I will be studying for those.  I am going to try to take one of them on Friday.  Get it over with and MOVE ON!!!  I have already registered for next semesters classes.  They begin in January.

  Cloudy today – rain is moving back into the region.  Rain – not snow.  🙁  We may get light snow at the end of this system, but nothing major.  ALLLLL these cold days and nights and then when precip moves in we end up with rain.  Why can’t it just snow!!!!!!  I am addicted to snow, but I am not the only one.  I know several snow fanatics.
