Weather and a Good Day









Santa Fe Baldy! So gorgeous!



Today is nice! It's sunny and 75 degrees. Mizzou is on their spring break and I'm at work a bit early enjoying an iced chai. Lovely. Spring is probably my favorite season. I'm looking at weather across the country. That's what I like to do. I mostly compare Missouri to Santa Fe and Albuquerque and then I look at Phoenix and Denver then I look at Portland. Here are the readings for today:

Wow! Check out those low humidity readings. I wonder why the low humidity readings are so wide spread. Most of the time when I check Santa Fe's humidity it's between 30% and 65%. Moberly's humidity is usually between 60% and 80%. Santa Fe is also expecting snow on Thursday night and a low of 27 degrees F. I'm so happy we're done with the low temperatures. Also notice that Santa Fe's altitude is much higher than Denver "the mile high city"'s altitude. Interesting.
