Probably one of the nicest late October days I have ever seen as we blew right past 70F about mid-afternoon. Sunny with big white puffy clouds and a wonderful warm breeze. If only, if only, it could simply stay like this my weather complaining days would be over forever. However, we are already under a severe storm watch with tornado warnings issued as a massive cold front stretching from southeast Texas to Labrador here in Canada is steamrolling right for us. As I type this, winds are really picking up and our radar shows the storm front rolling over Michigan and about to start across the lake. Pheebs and I were able to wander around this morning with no heater on and both front windows in the Jeep down. Took us for a walk south of Varna at Kerr's Campground. I noticed they are expanding their RV lots. I think this is one of the most scenic hidden gem rural RV Parks in our area. Lots of countryside walking room close by.

It was off to Goderich's Dynacare lab this afternoon to leave some more blood with them. Fifty minutes from the time I got there to the time I left. Everyone has to line up outside nowadays so I figured it was best to go on a warm day when it wasn't raining.

The fastmoving storm hit us around 5 o'clock with wind, thunder, lightning, and rain with maybe a bit of hail mixed in. Because of its speed, it rolled over us fast and had blown through in about 10 minutes. Temps dropped, winds dissipated to a dead calm and I caught a glimpse of sunshine to the west. Richard and Gayle weren't so lucky on a trip to the Bruce Peninsula. They lost the awning on their Motorhome.

Why did the bald man paint rabbits on his head?
Because from a distance they looked like hares!
