A weather front by the numbers
A fast moving cold-weather front came through East Tennessee today. From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. this is what happened:
* Temperature dropped 20 degrees from 60 to 40.
* Almost 2 inches of rain fell.
* 30 MPH winds once again littered woods around the house with wagon loads of downed limbs.
This Internet diary was not supposed to turn into a daily weather report, but watching the weather seems to be all I can do. I can skip rocks on what is supposed to be my berry patch.
I may consider being a catfish farmer instead of an orchardist.
