A frosty start and bowling for Hospice

October 8th, 2012 at 6:45 am by under Weather

Well it was definitely a shock to the system when I stepped out the door this morning.  Freezing temperatures slapped me in the face.  Of course my heavier winter jacket is packed away (I’m moving to a new apartment tomorrow) so I had to use my lighter weight jacket.  We have a freeze warning in effect until 9am so if you didn’t cover your plants they are probably gone.

While frost isn’t unheard of this early in October it is slightly earlier than the average freeze date.

High pressure is in control and bringing us clear skies which is helping to drop our temperatures.  But that same high will give us sunshine for the day today.  Temperatures will stay below normal today with highs in the middle to upper 50′s.

Temperatures gradually warm for the end of the week which means readings will get a little closer to normal.   A weak cold front moves through area late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning.  This means we’ll see a chance of rain but only early Wednesday.

Do you have any great fall foliage pics?  I would love to see them!  Send them via our reportit feature on our website wdtn.com.  I would love to share them on here or on our facebook page.

This weekend I was able to be co-host the annual Bowl for Hospice event with Carl Nichols and Jim Bucher.  Holy cow did we have fun!  I don’t think I laughed that hard in a long time!

So Buch, Carl and I went up and down the lanes asking bowlers to do crazy tasks – if they succeeded they won a prize.   I had one woman dance to the macarena, another do Y-M-C-A hand movements and they actually got a pretty good score!

I have no idea what Buch and Carl are doing here.  But we laughed for 2 hours and that was the best part!  Hospice of Dayton raised about $40K.  I am so happy I was able to take part.
