My move is scheduled for 3 October. It's 30 degrees at sunrise this morning. I'm not leaving ND but will be in a warmer part of the state.

We had a 20 degree drop in a half hour today just before the tornado/waterspout hit. It's supposed to be in the 60s and 70s next week. A significant cold spell for us at this time of year. Hope it doesn't impact the Fiddlers Convention next weekend.

Our indoor temp was 60 when we woke up this morning, so we turned on the heat (to 65) to take the chill off. Supposed to get warmer through next week, so hope we don't need the heat again yet. Too early!

60 degree indoor temp? Wow you are tougher than I am. I woke up cold last nite temp. said 67, so I turned on the heat for the first time since spring to get it to 70. I think I would have a sore throat in the morning sleeping at 60!

This morning: 44F outside, 57F inside.
About 2AM replaced blanket with comforter; much fun as there was a cat involved.
I will not turn on the heat until it has been checked out.
~Two weeks ago used A/C as was 97F outside.

Winter thermostat: 60F during the day, 50F at night.

Woo-hoo!!! I am so glad. I hope the rest of Texas gets rained on too, as well as other drought-striken states. Friday night in Texas - - - reminds me of high school football, and I'll bet they're slippin' and slidin' tonight.

Tropical Storm Lee didn't even drop enough water on us to put out the marsh fire in eastern New Orleans. It is STILL burning. They are still doing water drops from helicopters, and so far the smoke is not overpowering like it was at one point. Our daily rains have stopped for the time being, though I really can't complain. We don't have a bad drought as in so many other states.

Thanks W2R. It's still raining. I wish I could take a pic of it.

I just hope folks on the roads around here will be careful tonight. The roads are slick now...they haven't been that way for quite some time.

Sorry to hear about the fire down your way. Let's hope Mother Nature cooperates a bit more.

Another weather report. We got more rain! ...mixed in the rain was some small hail. Looks like the central part of TX is getting rain as well.

At last! That is good to hear. As in Dallas, when the rain falls on central Texas we should be able to hear a "sssstttt!" as each drop falls and vaporizes, following which a cloud of steam will arise.

We had a sprinkle today, and not much more. But we have rain predicted in the week to come. I am happy about that because it might put that marsh fire out. We could smell it today, though it wasn't too bad at the moment.

Quite a few folks here in Texas got some rain in the last couple days. We didn't get a single drop.

And now it's 106 out there. On September freaking 25th. I can't believe a summer could be this awful, and feel like it will never end. Have mercy on us already...

Feels like we're on a slow road to hell. There was some good rain the other day in the Metroplex, but my town got zilch. This is getting really old, including the electric bills.

Absolutely unreal what you Texans are experiencing this summer. I keep hoping for rain and cooler temperatures for you.

Today the temperature was 92 or so here in New Orleans, but we checked that from several sources because we just couldn't believe it - - it felt like 82. Guess the humidity must have been down. Very pleasant, at any rate.

Yow! At those temps we'd have to be hospitalized for hypothermia.

Winter thermostat: 78-79 daytime, 75 at night. And we're both in long sleeves/sweatshirts.

But in the summer we keep it 79-80.

In WVA ? Sounds more like AZ. Our kids live there and when they come back East in the Winter they pile 4 blankets on at night. In Summer they complain if we have the A/C at 75 - it's too cold for them.
