Beautiful autumn day

This afternoon, on the Tennessee River, looking west toward Decatur

Does it get any nicer than this? Not if you like sunny skies, a slight breeze, and high temperatures near 70 degrees.

The weather in North Alabama has been very comfortable, generally dry, and pleasant over the past month. We have had very few problems with severe weather in the State, and there has not been much to write about.

I am not complaining. This nice weather has given me a great opportunity to take a break from blogging. When the weather gets nasty, I will be back at it with a vengeance. It has been a great fall to be an Alabama Crimson Tide football fan and I have been enjoying watching Coach Saban and the guys roll over their first seven opponents, on their way to a number two national ranking (so far).

The next chance for storms around here will be this coming Friday. At this time there is no clear indication that this will be a severe weather event, but it bears watching.

We are entering our secondary tornado/severe weather season, so everyone should pay very close attention to the forecasts during the next few months.

I will be on business trips to Montgomery and Orange Beach the next two weeks. That, along with some issues with my laptop, may make it difficult for me to post this week.

Those are gorgeous pictures. My wife is from Columbus Georgia and the fall is always a beautiful time to head back and visit the relatives. Today in Seattle is sunny and 60 - about as good as we get this time of year.
