What a better way to spend an evening than raising your truck five feet in the air and repairing it. We had to replace the water pump and, while it was convenient, an oil change. I am very jealous of my friend's lift, but no way would it fit in my garage. I spent most of yesterday with Dawn, who was home sick from work. Hopefully she feels a little better today. I will not be able to take care of her all day today because Jeff Booth and I will be going out to lunch with our new meteorologist, Chris Mulcahy. I have met Chris, but it will be nice to sit down and chat about stuff. It is a rare occasion that we all can get together because of the opposite shifts.
Rain showers and mild conditions this morning. The rain showers will dry up a little bit as we head into the late morning and afternoon, but more showers and storms will roll in tonight. As of 5AM we only need. 0.59" more rain to get to the #2 wettest year on record...should likely happen by tomorrow morning. Warm again through tomorrow, mid 50 for highs, and we will dry out later tomorrow...then temperatures dropping, near 40 for highs, for the end of the week and weekend. At least the weekend is looking dry, but more rain returning early next week. There is still another system on the long, long term models right before Christmas with much colder air and moisture...snow still looking possible. The last three out of four model runs have shown a decent amount of moisture for a little whitening. More on that in the days to come. Stay dry today and have a good one!
