BEST WEEKEND IN A WHILE
It was a beautiful weekend here. Each day was in the 60's. A nice break from the cold winter. We haven't had that nice of a stretch of days since the 3-day period after Christmas. I don't think our central gas heat has run since Thursday. Good thing since our utility bill was nearly 400 bucks! :(
THUNDERSTORM CHANCES AHEAD
We are looking at storm chances on Tuesday and Wednesday. There is particular concern for strong winds with these thunderstorms for Wednesday. The National Weather Service has been pointing to this event for that last few days. Know your plan for severe weather. It is never too early to figure out what you'll do, where you'll go, etc.
JANUARY PRECIP RECAP
Some of you have been asking me about our January precipitation. We recorded 5.96" of rainfall here in Cookeville and 1.1 inches of snow. I know many of you saw more snow than we did. The 5.96" is more than our average January of 5.10"....in the last 6 years, we've only averaged 4.44" of rain in January. Looking ahead to February, we typically see 4.72" although the last four years have yielded just 3.75" each year.
