    ...freeze warning tonight...

    .cold canadian air that spread over the region this weekend will set the stage for a very cold night. as the high pressure area associated with the cold air drifts overhead tonight...skies will become clear and winds will become light. temperatures are expected
    to fall below freezing long enough to cause a hard freeze. lows could dip to 27 degrees...especially over far southern lower michigan and adjacent areas on northern indiana and northwest ohio.

    outdoor plants sensitive to cold temperatures should be protected and potted plants brought inside if possible. stay tuned to noaa weather radio and other local media for further details or updates.

    Debbie,

    You are originally from Chicago, correct? So you know what I am talking about here. Except we haven't had the first frost yet!! I have been born and raised in Indiana, and have hated the cold weather for a long time. I don't mind fall, can even tolerate 40 degree weather (if the wind isn't blowing), but 28 degrees in October is a bit too cold for me.

    yes i am from chicago and remember many a halloween trick or treating in my winter coat and leggins, totally ruining the whole costume effect. that's the midwest in autumn and winter. and why i am glad i no longer reside there in that time of year.

    It is cold as hades here in San Antonio today! I walked the doggie this afternoon, and had to don a jacket to do so, but I am love love loving every chilly moment of it!

    The heat is gone, the heat is gone.....the awful humidity and heat are gone........at least for a couple days until this cold front passes through.

    Deespoohbear.......you keep posting temperatures like that from Indiana, and I just might not see ya'll Hoosiers until Spring!

    Renee-You know the old saying about the weather in Indiana, don't you? If you don't like the weather in Indiana, wait 5 minutes and it will change.

    Also, you know you are from Indiana if you ever have turned on the air conditioner and the heat on the same day.
    (Been there, done that...)

    yep did that in Oklahoma, too dees. heat in a.m., a/c by 4. yep. don't miss it.

    Ha! :chuckle Dee.......Today started out with my air conditioner on..then I turned it off...then I turned on the heat......now it's on 65 just in case it gets really chilly in the house while I sleep tonight, the heat will kick on before freezing sets in......as if that could happen in my neck of the woods.

    BTW.....I love your quote: "I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow doesn't look good either." :roll

    Yeah, I was outside a little while ago and it was cold.....If this nonsense keeps up the kids will have to dress up as Eskimos for Halloween so they can keep warm....

    My entire house has that "just turned in the furnace for the first time" smell!
