First of all I was saddened to hear that Peter Boyle, the actor that played the father on "Everybody Loves Raymond" passed away at the young age of 71. I always loved that show and still enjoy the reruns. My heart goes out to his family and friends.
Today was a very interesting day weather wise. I didn't have any trouble getting to work but I made it just in the nick of time. Within 10 minutes after I got into the building, it just poured rain and with the wind blowing, the rain was sideways and upside down. (Well, not upside down but it was awful) It was pounding so hard on the big windows of our office, we actually opened up the mini blinds so we could see it coming down. I looked out once, later in the morning and the sun was shining for about 10 minutes and then it proceeded to rain and blow the rest of the day. Plus the temperature has dropped from a mild 50 degrees this morning to just under 40 degrees this evening. There were several scary stories on the news tonight about what happened as a result of the wind today. Several trees fell over on houses (no one was hurt, however) and the scariest...a big Douglas Fir tree fell across a school bus full of little kids up near Auburn, today. Thankfully none of the kids or the driver were hurt. The driver called it a real miracle. So what's next? Well, here's my latest email from KOMO TV in Seattle.
