Awaiting A Major Fall Storm In The Midwest!
It has been a day of waiting and watching the skies. Every fall we get a punch of weather that alerts us to the changing seasons. This year that storm is expected to be more harsh than most.
With some sunshine this morning and then filtered sun as the clouds came in and thickened allowed for temperatures to climb to 59 degrees at our Madison home. As passersby noted as they walked their dog or took their child for a walk it was a most pleasant November day.
Across the street today a hawk soared about and landed on a few trees looking for food along the shoreline–surely sensing too as so many animals can–the change that is about to arrive with inclement weather moving in.
During my days as a kid these storms were ones to look forward to, even as my Mom dreaded the high winds that would whip about our rural home and cause any who entered our door to hang onto it tight so not to let it fly about.
At about 4PM the first whitecaps can be seen on Lake Monona….
This storm, as seen with this graphic, has the winds at different levels in the atmosphere aiming to produce a most dramatic event.
