We were awakened in the middle of the night by a huge BOOM! In my sleep fogged mind I had no idea what had happened. I didn't hear thunder previous to this and - anyway, in upstate NY, you don't get thunderstorms in November.
So what does this portend for our winter?
Beats me but we are not having the most pleasant weather pattern right now. It was so windy at noontime that my walking companion and I gave up. I'm not walking much due to my ankle, but I would have liked to walk a little bit at lunch. Fortunately, it was not cold.
At least one school district had to close schools. And, our lights flickered at work - there are other people without power right now.
My spouse, who loves to follow the weather, has a feeling something bad is going to happen (weather wise, that is) right around Thanksgiving. I hope he is wrong. But be it as it may, more evidence that the weather is....strange, and unpredictable.
