I got up in the late afternoon after a restless night of interesting dreams but several interruptions. I had a late bunch of cereal and my last banana, along with a large cup of coffee. I checked my email but also watched the thunderstorm with great interest and compared storm amounts with Ray and Marty and a few others by email. I then had dinner of a nice big salad and the rest of the leftover chicken enchiladas with a hot sauce light garnish. I also had some prune juice and hot and spicy low sodium V8 before dinner and a few triscuits well after dinner. I worked on some email late earlier this morning and finally finished this Personal Financial Management course I had been taking online. I took out some recyclables on the way out to checking my rain gauge, and picked up my mail on the way back. I continued to work a bit more on the newly “hatched” Weatherquack weather website which should be fun in the coming months. I hope some of you out there will join in the fun soon on Weatherquack http://www.weatherquack.com – it is completely free and easy to use once you complete your registration and a short ramping up period. I also drank a good part of my ginormous water bottle throughout the evening and early morning hours.
We now have clear, dry skies with temperatures in the mid 60s at sunrise time at 0545. Tuesday and Wednesday look to be sunny with scattered clouds at times, dry with highs in the mid 80s and lows in the lower mid 60s. Thursday should heat up again with partly cloudy skies and highs in the low 90s, lows around 70° with roughly the same on Friday, but with a slight increase in the POP for rain (20 by number).
On Channel 4 radar at 0614, our Monday showers have moved elsewhere, to the south over parts of SE VA and NC and offshore, and up in New England and upstate NY along the coast and scattered inland also.
