Weather and Blogger
The weather has been absolutely balmy, a cost-saving condition. Well, when I had to turn of the AC for three days, there went the electric bill....up.
On January 10, Thursday, the temperature was 65 F, 65 F at 2:30 am it was still 65 F and stayed within a degree of that through Friday and Friday night, the temperature rose to the mid 70s F on Saturday, dropped to about 65F last night and rose to 70s F again today. However, it all ends tonight when it drops all the way to 49F. All this is Fahrenheit but Celsius is impressive, too.
65 F = 13 C
75 F = 24 C
It might seem that this is a great turn of fortune for us in the South. It is, but it makes us in the South nervous and wary. I live in Dixie Alley, a more dangerous area than Tornado Alley. We have two tornado seasons. Warm, unseasonable weather in the winter means the great possibility of tornadoes.
The weatherman has not mentioned tornadoes, but we know there is always that possibility, the threat. I just heard that Kentucky had an F1 tornado. So, there.... I do stay close to weather forecasts, maps, and the news.
Before I started keeping track, the weather preceding this extremely warm weather barely called for a jacket and I had to throw off blankets at night. I am quite sure these four days of balmy weather and using the AC only on Saturday and today, Sunday, has saved a tiny bit on the electric bill. Any little bit helps. Right?
I have not been able to post a picture since January 4, 2012. Even after I reported the problem, I have seen no improvement. Plus, my followers (Fabulous Friends) and the followers of many Blogger blogs are missing. See the upper right of my blog for missing followers.
Does anyone have an answer as to how to get through to Blogger?
