Dang, it is 38 degrees here where I live and I am not very far from the Texas Gulf Coast. For here, that is cold even for the middle of the winter but not for this time of year. Yes, it is suppose to warm up to the upper 70's later today, but it is rather cool here right now. I am blaming it on hurricane Sandy that is now approaching the North East Coast. Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining and actually kind of like it for a change. It would really be terrible of me to complain about a little cool weather when the North East is about to get hammered by wind, rain, and probably flooding. I have lots of relatives and friends that live in Pennsylvania and the surrounding states.
This is a really bad time of year to get such a bad storm. I don't know how cold it will get up that way, but with homes damaged and power outages, it will, in some cases, that people will have to go into a survival situation mode, trying to stay warm and dry. I heard it may drop 8 inches or more of rain. If it would turn cold enough to make that turn to snow it sure would be really bad. One inch of rain is equal to ten inches of snow so if they were to get the predicted amount but turned to snow it could dump up to eighty inches of snow. That would be demise of a lot of people. Either way, it will not be a good situation in that area and I feel really bad for the people living there and hope they all are able to survive and actually stay fairly comfortable. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all up that way, so if possible, have a great day now, you hear?
