Remember when…..

Which would you prefer the snow flying or the sun shining?
We are going on our 19th day of over 90 degrees plus humidity making it over 100 every day. It looks as though there is no end in site for our Ohio Valley. This coming week they are predicting no temps below 90. Yuck!! I will take the snow any day!

These pictures were taken during a snowstorm in 2010 year. The first picture was taken from our front yard looking towards Rt. 36— our main thoroughfare . The second picture is looking upward at the snow falling at nighttime. And the last is a picture of our home. It never crossed my mind that I would look at these pictures — and tell winter to hurry up. Below is the forecast for today from our local news and under that is a random Wednesday when we were having a snowstorm.

More heat, but a side of storms possible Friday

The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for the entire Tri-State from noon until 8 p.m.

A heat advisory is issued when high humidity is expected to combine with hot temperatures to make it feel like it is 100-105 degrees.

An excessive heat watch is in effect for Hamilton County for the same period.

The Storm Prediction Center has placed the Tri-State under a slight risk of severe storms on Friday. High winds are the most likely threat from any storms.

Persons in the advisory area are advised to avoid prolonged work in sun, or in poorly ventilated areas. Also, keep plenty of liquids on hand and try to stay in an air conditioned environment.

Children, the elderly and people with chronic ailments are usually the first to suffer from the heat.

Heat exhaustion, cramps, or in extreme cases heat stroke can result from prolonged exposure to these conditions.

Friends, relatives, or neighbors should check on people who may be at risk.
