Thoughts While ShavingA strong thunderstorm moved through the area late last evening, dumping 1.5 and 2 inches of rain on the area, mostly between 10:30 and 11 p.m.

Today’s forecast…Mostly sunny, with a high near 85 and gusts in the 15 mph range. Mostly clear tonight, low near 60. Friday is sunny with a high near 81, and windy, gusts as high as 17 mph.

High temps throughout the weekend and into midweek, mostly in the low to mid-80s and lows in the low 60s. A nice break from the recent high in the upper 80s to low 90s.

I think I must have slept through the storm…

Social Security COLA increase is expected to be in the 3.2% range… nothing has been approved at this time… To be determined.

A short ride through portions of Bladen late yesterday indicates farmers are busy harvesting…

Hurricanes, earthquakes, crimes, and politics… other than those issues, there’s not much to report on.
