TVA is trying for yet another record rainfall year. Meanwhile the dewpoint is above 70 in late October. Where is the complaint department? At least the sun is out, which beats overcast at any temp/dew.

Oklahoma ice storm is truly remarkable. NWS noted trees broke when ice actually melted. Ice was so thick it acted like a brace for already broken branches. No brace branch goes down.

Hopefully that's not a sign of things to come in our region. If so the Mid South can have it. The only time I celebrate the common 36 and rain in Chattanooga... is when we avoid an ice storm.

Yep those classic 35-37 degree rains around here in the past decade plain suck, while you see 50-60 miles to your north getting a winter wonderland.....

Still though I guess a cold rain is more preferable than an ice storm :)

Been an awesome day here for late October.  Warm, windy and sunny after the clouds broke.  I spent the day watching the huge red and white oaks bend in the wind.  It was a blessed day despite the chaos surrounding us, and I know enough to say "thanks."  The windows are open this evening, but will be shut soon, as I can tell a cold front is passing through.

The simple things.  That's what makes life good in seemingly rough times.  I've learned a lot in 2020, and the best lesson is to enjoy each and every moment that comes along where the light shines through.  Today, I got a good dose of it.

Definitely had some kind of major pressure drop/rise within the last 5 minutes. White noise in my ear, felt like I was going deaf and felt slightly dizzy/sick.
