Last night was pretty much a dud for us with the energy passing to our north. An even better chance returns tonight with hail and wind being the major danger although the chance for an isolated tornado is again a possibility.

Yesterday we beat our old high temperature record of 75º that was set back in 1982 by two degrees when we hit 76.9º at 4:05 pm. We have another chance for severe weather today.

It felt great yesterday. So nice to go to a February track meet and not have my teeth chatter.
