Turning colder, visit from friend, looking ahead to Thanksgiving...
I tried soaking in the "mild" temps last week before it turned colder... I have been sporadic with the running lately. Timing out naps and "free" time with two kids is a lot more challenging to predict. One of the downsides to no daycare, but there are so many upsides to getting to spend time with the kids.
It was also my first weekend with just the kids and me. Mom went to Indy to spend time with her Mom. The kids and I went to a craft show and farmer's market before watching part of the game with a friend... Then home for nap time.
Another friend, Adam Aaro, came to visit Saturday night. It was good to get part of Team Weekend back together. Adam said he misses when his kids were as little as Evan.
This week started off icy! We had freezing rain move in for Monday morning.
Some of the places did warm up enough to melt through the morning.
But everything was icy at my house when I got home from work.
Summer passed her first swimming class! I have been working with her for a long time on learning the fundamentals she was learning in class. I am excited to see her move to the next class and get even better.
I also have been teaching her how to fix headlights on the car. My wife's Pontiac is an electrical nightmare with all these issues. Then I keep waiting on new headlights from Amazon that fit the car properly, but the first pair didn't fit the waterproofing of the housing and the second pair was fried when I opened the box. None of the local stores carried the LED conversion kit.
Another morning with slick roads to the north. Light snow has been falling overnight and roads are cold enough for some of the snow to cause icy spots, so use caution. Any early snow will clear out by midday and we will see the clouds starting to clear in the afternoon with highs in the upper 30s with a light breeze. Partly cloudy and cold tonight with frost. We see a mix of sun & clouds tomorrow with highs near 40. A cold front will pass later in the day tomorrow and may trigger a few flurries, but not enough to cause any travel issues.
Thanksgiving will be partly cloudy and cold with highs in the mid 30s. Morning temps for Black Friday will be in the mid 20s, so cold for shopping, but we warm up later in the day with highs in the upper 40s and partly cloudy skies. High temps in the 50s for the weekend, but rain returning.
The heaviest rain for the weekend will be early Saturday morning then
spotty rain through midday. Saturday PM and Sunday will be mostly dry
with just a few spotty showers. More heavy rain possible on Monday and
turning much colder for Tuesday and the rest of next week. Have a good
