(No count conducted today)



Weather:
Into each life a little rain must fall. Sometimes it undergoes a change of
state and becomes snow, such is life today. Not whiteout conditions here,
but steady persistent snow. Once again we are singing the Polar Vortex
blues.

Non-raptor Observations:


Predictions:
Tomorrow looks good on paper with northerly winds and plenty of it.
Sometimes that works against us if the winds are too strong, we shall see.
Supposed to be clear skies but frigid temps in the 20's and a fresh NNW
wind providing windchill will test us all. Surprisingly, the barometer is
still above thirty through all of this unseasonal weather.
