    Good morning all! 63 degrees heading for 89. Been a very busy last couple days so I'm looking forward to the weekend. Nothing big to report. I only managed a quick look here yesterday so I admit I didn't get a look at every post in the last couple day. Patrick: Good luck with the interview...

    Good morning all! 64 degrees with 87% humidity on the way to 95 hot degrees for the day. Glad we had better temps over the 3 day weekend. Had a very enjoyable weekend. Got some relaxation in, ate too much and sat on my butt a lot. During that sitting time I was getting my school work done. My...

    Good morning all! The hotter weather returns today after a nice weekend. Grilled out some cheeseburgers yesterday and they were quite tasty. Later we spent a little time in the garden and went for a country ride on the gravel in our side-by-side. All this talk of Culver's is making me hungry...

    Good morning all and Happy Father's Day to whom it applies. Looks like it's going to be a beautiful day here before the heat starts creeping back up on us starting tomorrow. Supposed to be back to triple digit heat and/or heat index in a couple days. No big plans for the day. May grill out some...

    Good morning all! 68 and sunny headed for 80 and sunny. Nice to get a couple days break from the oppressive heat before it hits us again. Had a strong storm blow in yesterday morning with very heavy rain and wind. Our power flashed off and on once but that was it. One of the sister schools to...

    Ok, change that chance of a thunderstorm to full blown heavy wind and rain with hail.

    Good morning all! 80 on the way to 89 with a chance of thunderstorms this morning. Would really be nice to get some rain. It appears the worst of the current heatwave is behind us. Have to go out to the range this morning and do my yearly qualification for my retired officers concealed carry...

    Good morning all! 82 on the way to sunny and 95 here. Still under the heat advisory today. Supposed to start slowly trending downward the next few days. Hoping for rain, but no significant chance in forecast. Been pretty busy the last couple days at work. A contractor was supposed to be in...

    Good morning all! 78 degrees already this morning on the way to yet another stifling hot day with another Excessive Heat Warning in effect. Supposed to get up to 98 with a heat index of 107. Not as bad as they're getting it in Spain now but hotter than I care to be just the same. Very busy day...

    Good morning all! 72 with 100% humidity on the way to sunny and 99 degrees with expected heat index of 102. Gonna be miserable outside the next few days, maybe longer.

    Good morning all! 78, cloudy and very humid heading for 88 with a 50% chance of storms. Probably the last day we'll see below 90 for a while. The next few days are predicted to be 97, 99 and 98 respectively. I hate it being that hot but I'll still take it over Winter. Got an e-book version of...

    Today I became a college student. 35 years after I quit college to join police department I decided to go back and finish. I never regretted joining the police department but I did regret never getting a degree. I found out today that I only needed four courses to get my degree from Lincoln...
