Sunrise without fog

As Stacey and Mike have already alluded to in earlier comments this week this is turning into an unusual shift for us. The biggest change for me is that I’m working nights and trying to sleep during the day. This coupled with the reduced number of personnel is making things interesting and challenging.

We’ve had quite a mix of weather this week too, along with the usual fog, we’ve also had a couple of great sun rises and one good sunset. It’s also been quite chilly and on Saturday we actually equaled our daily minimum temperature of 32 degrees. Looking at the radar we won’t be seeing much of a sun rise this morning though as a great swath of rain is now heading our way along with much warmer temperatures. We may even hit a balmy 60 degrees later today.
