    Gotta love those moments when it’s a nice, sunny day with a light breeze. Then it stops and gets eerily quiet for a moment before a cold wind swirls in from the other direction and the sky goes dark on you.

    Yes, Arlo. And probably time to also bring that chair in with you.

    Yesterday, there were two small tornadoes in the area. Most year’s there aren’t any tornadoes in Western Oregon.

    Cool, brisk, autumn days. Best times ever! (No irony!)

    Oh, how I enjoy watching the change of an approaching storm with the shift in wind direction, the chill brought on by inflow, the movement of the front and the clouds. The awesome beauty and beast of nature!

    I have a great view from my home here in northernmost Maine. It overlooks a lake, an island (about a mile away), and then the far shore (about five miles away).Most of our storms come from the West , soI often get to see the storms coming. When the island disappears from view I know I’m in for bad weather!

    Or in his case, too late as he isn’t 12 years old.

    We walk at the zoo three times week before it opens. They let you in at 6:30 a.m. and you have to be out by 8:30. It is a full 3 mile walk so it is perfect for us. The coolness, the wind, the animals waking up, and finally the zoo keepers showing up is really nice.

    In life, too.

    (I have missed being killed by fractions of a second several times.)

    This happened to a friend of mine. His wife’s response was, “I hope my next husband is less pig headed”.

    Half of his replies make no sense to me. I don’t have any males like Arlo in my life.

    November 11, 1940 Armisitice Daya

    Not so funny

    Hunters taking advantage of the holiday and extremely mild weather were rewarded with an overabundance of waterfowl. Many would later comment that they had never seen so many birds, but the birds knew something most of the hunters didn’t. They were getting out of the way of an approaching storm.

    Across the Midwest hundreds of duck hunters, not dressed for the cold, were overtaken by the storm. Winds came suddenly then masses of ducks arrived flying low to the ground (Washburn, 2008). Hunters, awed by the site of unending flocks of birds, failed to recognize the impending weather signs that a change was in process. Rain started and temperatures fell rapidly. By the time the rain, sleet, then heavy snow reduced the visibility to zero, hunters lost their opportunities to return safely to shore. Hundreds of duck hunters lost boats, gear and guns as 15 foot swells and 70 -80 mph winds swept down channels and marshy backwaters. Some hunters drowned, others froze to death when the near 60 degree TEMP PLUMMETED, first to freezing, then into the single digits (Knarr, 1941; Swails, 2005; Washburn, 2008).

    Twenty foot drifts were reported near Willmar, MN. The blizzard left 49 dead in Minnesota, and gales on Lake Michigan caused ship wrecks resulting in another 59 deaths. The storm claimed a total of 154 lives, and killed thousands of cattle in Iowa. More than a million turkeys were killed by the storm in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and other states. The storm became know as the “Armistice Day Storm”.

    What was the biggest blizzard in Minnesota?

    (Was waiting for Trick or Treater around 5 pm. No one came..the snow was coming down.)

    Oct 31-Nov 3, 1991, Halloween Blizzard. Over 28 inches at MSP, nearly 37 inches at Duluth. Nasty windchill conditions, deep snow drifts harsh on wildlife, many roads closed for days. Perhaps one of the largest and longest lasting blizzards in state history.

    Unless you’re hoping to meet the Wicked Witch of the West, heck yeah you should come in.
