    If Acculess is correct the cool down next week will be short lived, right back to 60′s and 70′s the following week. Those temperatures are just fine by me especially the 70′s :)

      I love 70′s. Today was just too hot for me.

    Made 79 today in TVC. Our first 70 degree day. Next to East Bay you needed a coat though. The warm weather brought new birds to the feeder: 3 indigo buntings, 5 rose breasted gross beaks, a hummingbird, cowbird, kingbird, and oriole were all visitors today in addition to the usual customers.

      What a difference now though from TVC to GR, TVC is 56 right now and GR is 80, how did you guys cool down so fast?

    There’s a BAD accident on the northbound US-131 entrance ramp at Wayland – it looks like a double tanker truck (gas? oil?) flipped: the tractor and first trailer are upside down; it looked like they had just righted the second trailer. I’m assuming they were filled with fuel because there’s another tanker truck standing by.

    I can’t imagine seeing something that scary tip over…….many, MANY years ago, a tanker tipped over and caught fire on the S-curve, and the fire was so hot it actually deformed the bridge!

      OK – now that I read WOOD’s news – I see it’s fertilizer that was being hauled (that stuff is pretty explosive, too) and thankfully, nobody was hurt?!

  5. Got into hail: peas, dimes, and a few pennies near Greenville today. Nice severe warned storm!

      You’ve got some awesome pics on your site Charles. You also have a great area to chase storms.
