Good 46º dark cloudy morning.
Yesterday it was nice to see that blue sky and some cumulus clouds for a change....
Then later we got some cirus mixed in with the cumulus....
The sky stayed blue and with beautiful clouds all day. By 4pm we hit 82º.
Pictures of the Day..... then and now...

Interesting about Tim Allen.....
This lovable comedian served time in prison! I don’t know about you but I was definitely shocked when I came across this piece of information. Tim Allen is known for lending his voice to the character of Buzz Lightyear in ‘The Toy Story’ series. He is also a famous TV actor who appeared in ‘Home Improvement’ and is currently playing the lead in ‘Last Man Standing.’ Back to the jail time, however. In 1978, Allen was arrested from the Battle Creek International Airport, Detroit, for possession of almost a pound of cocaine. He pled guilty to drug trafficking charges and avoided life imprisonment only by naming other drug dealers. He was then sentenced for five years in prison out of which he spent two years and four months at the Federal Correctional Institution in Sandstone, Minnesota, after which he was released on parole in July 1981.
In 1997, he was arrested again for driving under the influence of alcohol (he almost tripped backwards when he was pulled over and had .15 percent blood-alcohol content) and had to undergo rehabilitation for alcohol abuse
