With not much to do here on 'The Rock', it has become important to keep an eye on the weather an get outside whenever possible. The old-timers [some folks have been working here for 40 years] say that pleasant weather is infrequent and fleeting. The flag pole outside my unit is a stand-in anemometer; though the Weather Underground works well too.
Within the next few weeks winter weather is expected to set in soon. I've been told to expect frequent bouts of Condition 1 weather [wind > 70 knots and/or more than 5 inches of rain per hour]. Should be fun!
