    I think that is the storm we will be getting on Thursday.

    Have you ever thought of life without the weather forecast? Granted they miss quite a bit but no weather forecast. One you would have to rely on memory of past seasons and weather but I have learned watch the animals. They do know when things are coming- the deer, squirrels and birds all act busy prior to a storm. People should stop and learn animal behaviors.

    Yes, I have been trying to keep an eye on things and make mental notes. I'm not trying to predict what the temps will be, just a general weather pattern.

    the problem with this is that it would require people to put down the phones/tablets/PCs/turn off TV's/game consoles and "unplug". Something most people in America no longer want to do or are unwilling to do.

    I will be "unplugging" every weekend from now until Jan. I don't get much cellphone reception at my hunting property. That means at night, before, I have to communicate with those in my hunting party, what a concept!

    Horizontal wind driven rain with gusts 25-30 MPH this afternoon and I heard a dump truck nest door. My 84 year old neighbor ordered 5 1/2 yards of 3/4 minus rock for his boat pad and the truck delivered it in this storm onto his driveway.

    Grabbed the wheelbarrow, shovels and rake, gloves and rain jacket and he, myself and another kind hearted neighbor turned the pile into a boat pad in a little less than two hours. Wind gusts so strong they took the blade of the shovel I was using, twisted it in my hands nearly blowing me over.

    It is a really nice brand new 18' Pro-V Hewescraft. :D
