The weather Thursday afternoon and evening was quite “interesting.” We had a significant drop in the temperature, combined with some serious wind and clouds and then torrential rains. It impacted a large swath of the east coast, with a number of areas postponing Halloween activities. Jean and I though our door might blow inward at one point last night. We have several power outages in the area and some areas report a little snow accumulation, seven years after Hurricane Sandy!
Here’s the weather outlook for this weekend (much better): Friday will be cloudy early, then gradual clearing, with a high near 36. Breezy, with a west wind 14 to 21 mph, with gusts as high as 31 mph and a low of 28 degrees. Saturday will be sunny, with increasing cloudiness, with a high of 46 and a low of 28. Sunday will be partly sunny, with a high of 39 and a low of 27. Certainly feels like winter in the air especially with most of the leaves off the trees.

There are some really neat Halloween activities and music going on at Mountain State, Black Bear Tavern, MoonShadow, Roots Yoga and some good music at Sipside on Friday evening. There is certainly something for every taste. And if local football is your thing, Southern is at Northern High School this Friday evening, with a halftime show commemorating the champion SHS marching band. Check it all out on our events section.
Here’s a reminder for the local Maker’s Fall Market hosted by Shabby Patina – it’s Saturday on Sang Run Road. Here’s the link.
