The Weather is Here; Wish You Were Beautiful

UPDATE (11:00am, Sula time): The snow got heavier for a little while, but has stopped for now.

UPDATE (10:00am, Sula time): A light snow is falling this morning. The temperature is a little above 32 degrees, so it won't stick. The snow has put a damper on all the forest fires in the area. Hopefully it'll be what they call a season ending event.

It's raining now, so they've gotten it right so far. The rainfall sounds great hitting my metal roof and the skylights.  I believe this forecast is for downtown Sula, near the Sula Country Store on Highway 93. My place is about ten miles away and several hundred feet higher in elevation. The temperatures here are consistently eight to ten degrees colder than what is forecast for Sula.
