I'm looking forward to a Thanksgiving where I don't have the A/C on to balance out the heat in the kitchen and outside.  It looks like we might be cool enough in Knoxville to relax by a nice fire after dinner.  As for what's on the table, I put more trust in Snoopy to fix my Thanksgiving meal!


Yes, it doesn't quite feel like Thanksgiving with all the windows open, wearing t-shirts and shorts, and sitting on the porch instead of in the living room as we did last year.

Our daughter already had a foot of snow in the Idaho pan handle. They had none this time last year.

Earth transforms sunlight's visible light energy into infrared light energy, which leaves Earth slowly because it is absorbed by greenhouse gases. When people produce greenhouse gases, energy leaves Earth even more slowly Ė raising Earth's temperature. http://www.howglobalwarmingworks.org/

I wish. Iím not that fast yet. Started running in 2015 when I was 50 lbs overweight. Lost 65 lbs through diet and exercise. This morning I ran a 1:40:35. Previous best was 1:44:12 at Oak Barrel in Lynchburg (brutal course).

Might not mean anything but the waterfowl migration is way ahead of schedule. The major push is in northern Missouri. The Dakotas are froze up. Earliest freeze up since the 80s.

Autumn about to wrap up in these parts.  The only trees with leaves remaining are white & red oaks for the most part, and those have turned a copper red or brown.  Starting to look like winter.

A cloudy, cool day on tap for the last half of the weekend with a high of 52 expected here.  Perfect for building a fire in the fire pit and watching the leaves fall.

Put on my big snow boots and
I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the freezing rain

Snow up high
Won't you pour down over me
Yeah, I got some accretion
But I'm as blue as a boy can be

From Memphis- meh so far

Late in the work week, guidance continues to bring a stronger
storm system across the area, although there is a significant
disagreement in timing. The GFS has the associated cold front near
Birmingham and Jackson, MS by Saturday morning while the ECMWF is
much slower with the front closer to the Missouri Bootheel and
Little Rock. Given the low amplitude pattern ahead of this
system, feel like the slower solution is probably the better bet.
Instability is not expected to be significant along and ahead of
the system...but dynamic energy may be enough to produce a line of
organized low topped thunderstorms along the front. Will maintain
a low confidence of Strong to Severe Storms in the HWO Friday
into Friday night.


Thanksgiving holiday period starting to look pretty wet to begin and turning cold with highs in the 40's and lows in the 20's.

SPC says damaging winds will be primary threat..even then it's marginal and contingent upon depth of instability axis.

It is November and secondary severe season- whether anything to come this year or not, we'll see.
