Good morning bloggers,
On this Halloween we are completing another dry month. Kansas City had 1.08″ this month compared to an average of 3.16″. Last year we had 0.22″, but then in November we had almost five inches of rain in 2011. Right now there is no sign of anything like that happening.
Superstorm Sandy is finally lifting north and will exit the northeast during the next 48 horus. There has been a lot of talk about Global Climate Change and this storm. One storm may not indicate that the climate is changing or be a symptom of a warming earth, but the frequency of these events over years would be a much bigger story. To have a hurricane blast into the Jersey Shore and combine with a developing larger scale storm to produce such a monster storm system with a hurricane and a blizzard happening at the same time, would be a type of storm that would have sounded just like an exaggeration years ago.
What do you think?
Have a great day. I have been in meetings all day, so I am sorry about the late finishing of this short blog today.
