3/5/2009 @ 7:00 AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

We will try to resume normal posting today thanks to the folks from United Telephone Co. who came out yesterday in record time and installed a new DSL Modem. We must be hard on those things because this is the third one in 3 years but we still have the same Wireless Router we started with. I guess I need to try to get a spare for the day the router goes out. Me and my little buddy took a short walk this morning and while it’s still a bit muddy and there are still a few patches of Snow in the shadier areas it’s a mighty fine very late winter morning. We had a Woodpecker move in across the street a few days ago and now I think we have a couple more, “there goes the neighbor hood”, I also have a family of Robins out back and a couple of Red Cardinals, and a couple million Blackbirds so it was actually kind of noisy outside. The weather is going to be really Spring like today, we were a bit cool over night but back to 45 degrees by 7 AM and heading to 66 degrees. There are clouds moving in but most of the rain that was associated with them is being dropped on Texas and other States to our Southwest. The air coming this way now is more and more from the West and South and less frequently from the North so the atmosphere is changing over to Spring just about on schedule. The wind is most decidedly from the South this morning and speeds will pick up today, in fact it will be Kite Flying weather for the next few days. That’s not such a big deal for kids now days but back in my younger days me and the guys would fly em all day, we even fly one all night once, at least until the wind gave out about 3 O’clock in the morning. I guess video games took the thrill out of Kite flying. Anyway I’m rambling again so back to the weather. With a lot of clouds but still Sunny at times I don’t think we have any real rain chances or Storms before Sunday or Sunday night, so enjoy the warm up. Now for the facts.

We had no precipitation for the last 24 hours.
Temperature at 7 AM is 45 degrees, rising quickly with the morning Sun to a high of 66 degrees. Somewhere somebody will report 70 today and we all will tomorrow. The Low tonight should not go much if any below 50.

Barometer is 30.25″ and falling a bit. Pressure will be up and down as we see some ripples in the atmosphere pass over from the Southwest. But, nothing to worry about too much for a couple of days.

Humidity is 60% and we are drying out. A lot of the mud will succumb to the lower Humidity today and all of the Snow should give it up today.

Wind is South at 4 mph this morning. Look for gusty winds next few days but nothing to strong. We have had a lot of hard wind this Winter.

The summary for today is Fair to Partly Cloudy, warm with 66 degrees for the High and 50 for the Low tonight. Warmer Friday but more Clouds likely. Have a good day, go fly a kite.
