It was quite chilly here this morning … sweater weather, almost. Once things warmed up to daytime temperature, the skies were a beautiful autumnal blue, the sun was shining, and the thermometer (well, registered in the low 70s. Delightful.

One of our local weathermen* said this morning that this “cold air” was about a month early. Soooo … let’s all keep our fingers crossed that we get this gorgeous weather or something very similar (and neither drought nor too much rain nor ridiculous heat) this time next month, for the Lexington Combined Driving Classic and the National Drive (also here at the KHP, the weekend after the CDE, and hosting CAA Driver Proficiency Program evaluations).

*Bill … the geeky one. And I mean this in a very good way. I think meteorologists should geek out over the weather and not just report it. Weatherman Bill gets visibly excited about weather patterns and events; he presents Weather 101 classes to local school kids; and he has a blog where he can (and does) talk at length about the weather.
