Tom's Weather Journal


Since the early days of this blog, dear Mrs Bale has kindly stopped by to give us a weather report. You may have noticed that she usually shows up when the weather is interesting - big snowfalls, low temps, rain. She will continue to make an appearance, but she will now be joined by Tom, who is going to do an occasional entry called Tom's Weather Journal. He has kept a print one for ages, but I've been encouraging him to bring it to the online journal because he can put up pictures to illustrate some of the topics he writes about. He has a friend named Eddie, and you should hear them on the phone. One calls the other to say where the sun is setting or what planets are in the sky or how much rain we've gotten. They love to keep track of things like the slant of the sun coming into the house at the two equinoxes. I think you'll enjoy these fun reports, and please do leave comments to encourage him!

  1. Oh, I do love Mrs. Bale and her shipping forcasts! And also, the way she let's one know the precise time dinner will be served. I often do that for my husband, in my most Mrs. Bale-y voice!

  2. What a treat! I look forward to Tom's weather reports. (Says she who never cared about weather until moving to Nebraska!)

  3. I will find Tom's weather journal most interesting. I like to compare weather with blogs like yours that I read regularly. I do enjoy Mrs Bale's take on the weather and most else she cares to comment on.

  5. Living in central New York, especially this time of year, it's hard not to care about the weather. "Lake effect" is the buzz word - bands of snow streaming in off Lake Ontario can drop a foot of snow in one area, while the sun shines brightly 10 miles away. I'll be looking forward to Tom's reports!

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
