    (BTW....I'll be posting a Trivia thread tomorrow:thumb
    Thanks, D! It gets toasty...but dry heat is definitely bearable. Can't wait for autumn and football - let seasons ring!!!
    To infinity...and beyond.

    • Another heat wave passing through. Been quite common in this country, this year. Record heat all over the planet. Hope the fires die out.

      • Getting colder now, looks like Fall is here for some of us. Cider and Apples are nice, but the cold house, and mornings not so much.

          Do I hear you! Coldest autumn I can remember. Saw snow twice in September!! Only snowed 3 times in September in our history.....

          I often talk about my love for autumn, but this one is not my fav....so far. We are rushing to get the leaves raked, and other yard work. One good frost managed to drop 1/2 our leaves overnight!!

          BTW....we were in New York this summer, and it was GREAT time!:thumb:

            National Weather Service Amarillo TX

            ...A WINTER STORM POSSIBLE FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...

            A strong cold front is forecast to move across the Texas and
            Oklahoma Panhandles Wednesday night and early Thursday. In
            addition, an upper level storm system is expected to approach the
            Panhandles from the southwestern states and the southern and
            central Rockies by Friday and then continuing through Saturday.
            Warmer and more moist air from the south is expected to move up
            and over the shallow colder air at the surface late this week into
            early this weekend. The combination of all of these features is
            expected to result in winter weather for all of the Texas and
            Oklahoma Panhandles Friday through Saturday with the winter
            weather possibly beginning as early as Thursday night across the
            far southern Texas Panhandle.

            There are a lot of uncertainties with regards to this upcoming
            winter weather event so early ahead of the event, such as timing,
            location, and precipitation types and amounts, but it appears that
            there should be a possibility for freezing rain and sleet Friday
            across the southern Panhandles with snow and sleet across the
            northern Panhandles Friday. If the current solution holds true,
            the snow should then spread south and east Friday night and
            Saturday across the remainder of the Panhandles but could still be
            mixed with the freezing rain and sleet Friday night across the
            southern portions changing to snow before ending on Saturday.
            Again, there is a lot of uncertainty and low confidence this soon
            in the week as weather computer models will be changing day to
            day.

            You are encouraged to stay tuned to the latest forecasts from the
            National Weather Service office in Amarillo Texas by listening to
            NOAA weather radio, commercial radio or television, or by
            visiting our website at www.weather.gov/ama.

                      Funny!

                      Dang, we just got hit with a winter storm. Now that my back is resting from shovelling, it is kind of pretty, Should have used the blower, but I shovel it in stages now, unless it is a huge dump! Ha ha...plus the neighbours might expect me to do the block!! Just kidding. But seriously, a couple of years ago we cleared the snow with a snow blower committee of sorts, and it was fun. People bonded nicely. Can't wait for the city crews to get it all started.

                        • 2 beautiful days in a row here in the northeast Texas panhandle!! The rest of the week should be the same although they are forecasting wind for Friday. Why is it the wind is bout the only thing they get right???

                              Guess you wouldn't want to trade for temps around -30C (overnight), which is into the -20s F? Mind you, we canucks expect it every year. Whether we love it or not is another story!!

                              Hence the packed airports for those travelling to warm climates!!

                                Bout 20....25 years ago we had a couple winters that it got down that cold for a week or so. In all honesty while it was cold it wasn't that bad as we had no wind..... That's what gets us here, the wind, fence posts and barbed wire don't offer much protection against wind.
