I've Had The Flu - I'll Take The Shot

World War I (1914-1918) killed about 17 million people.

The 1918 flu epidemic killed between 50 and 100 million people.

I just got my flu shot.

I'm Back - And A Wet Weekend

I know that I have not been updating my blog for a while - I've been enjoying my retirement a bit too much and have been away from home more than I have been here.  I will try to do better.

If you haven't looked out your window lately, it is raining - a lot. A warm front brought warm, damp air up from the south, and then some cold, dry air from Canada came to visit us.

As the warm, moist air floats up and over the denser cold, dry air, the warm air cools, the water condenses, and ... rain.
Hurricane Joaquin predicted path as of Wednesday 9/30

As of right now, it looks like it will be damp right through the weekend, with the possibility of Hurricane Joaquin coming to visit.

The computers aren't sure of the exact path, but most models show the hurricane moving west, crossing New Jersey or Pennsylvania and then passing up through New York.  We will miss the worst of the storm, but the weekend could be a wash.  

No snow days predicted...
