3/16/2010 @ 7AM in Bedford County, Tennessee

Clouds and Cool temps. hanging in another day but change is on the way. Mid 50’s today and Low 40’s tonight. Wednesday a mix of Clouds maybe a Shower and then the mess moves out for Sun on Thursday. We need a break from the Clouds and Cool Damp weather because it’s taking a toll on folks. I know several people who have or recently had pneumonia and I’m trying not to be one of them, My old dog Benji is having a hard time getting around and a lot of the aches and pains from a long cold Winter have had a cumulative effect on most of us. It’s time for some warmer weather and signs of approaching Spring are there but everything is running later. The greening process on the lawn is ongoing and I’m seeing some growth in spots and not just the Onions. Our trail to the Barn which we have followed faithfully most of the Winter is well worn and I look forward to what the change of Seasons has to offer. The Stores are starting to display their Spring Lawn and Garden products but not in as much abundance as years past. I guess the Great Recession is mostly responsible for that. On a lighter note we recently were gifted with a good supply of Country Ham, and if it kills me I’ll die happy. Now finally here are the facts.

We reported a Trace of precip. for the period. Less than a hundredth of a inch.
Temperature was 43 degrees at 7AM this morning. NWS is calling for 53 today I think we may come up a degree or 2 short but maybe I’m wrong. Cool but certainly not Cold low 40’s over night.

Barometer is 30.12″ and finally showing some signs of the Great Nor Easter moving out of the North Eastern states and taking our Clouds with it. Still another 36 hours or so before we really start to recover.

Humidity is 85% early but will retreat some today but still we will be damp for a few more days.

Wind Is Northwest at 3 mph and we remain with the Northwest for a couple of more days.

Sky is Overcast. maybe a few brief peeks of Sun but mostly Cloudy. We hope for a mostly Sunny Thursday and some chance of drying up.

The Summary, Today: Cloudy, with a high near 53. North northwest wind around 10 mph.

Tonight: Cloudy, with a low around 42. North northwest wind around 5 mph becoming calm.

Wednesday: A 20 percent chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 56. North northwest wind between 5 and 10 mph.

Wednesday Night: A 20 percent chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 41. North wind around 5 mph becoming calm.

And as Cronkite would say, “And that’s the way it is” for this last week of Winter. Spring arrives in 4 more days.
