2011 is finally here. I hope to all my readers that it turns out to be one of the best years ever. I was able to ring in the new year with a few friends, but not before a very active day. I woke up about 1:30AM yesterday morning to do the morning weather. Went home, took a 90 minute nap, then Dawn and I went to the Nutter Center to watch the Harlem Globetrotters. I had never watched them before and they put on quite a show. I would definitely go back and watch them again. Dawn and I rang in the new year in Columbus and we stayed at my brothers' place. It is always a lot of fun to visit them because all of my brothers and I have such different personalities. This morning we went to meet her parents, had lunch, and did our Christmas gift exchange, since I had to work, and we had a great time. They also brought Buckeye back down and to say he was excited to see us would be an understatement. From there we came home and now I am back in the weather center.
I will say, yesterday was FANTASTIC!! I honestly did not expect to get into the 60's, and I am pretty sure no one did. The cloud deck fell apart for a short time and the little bit of sunshine that we saw sent the thermometer climbing. Regardless, I think everyone enjoyed the warm temps......but......it had to end. Tonight we will dip back into the teens and the highs for the first half of the week will be in the low 30's and then 20's by next weekend. Little to no snow is expected thanks to the jet streams current path, our best chance looks to be Thurs-Friday, but that looks very weak. As a matter of fact, there looks to be little to no precipitation for the Miami Valley for quite a while, so the good news.... roadways should be dry and not icy or snowy. New Year, so ya gotta look at the positives. Have a good one!
