was my commuter buddy’s snippet as we headed out of Union Station this morning.
“Sure, if it is OCTOBER!” was my response.

So last night it wasn’t unusual that the temperature on the first floor of my house was 81 degrees, with my attic bedroom registering even higher.

Until about 3:33 a.m.
I was informed this morning that a rare meteorological phenomena, which is typically observed along the Western Lake Michigan shoreline during the warm season, called a PNEUMONIA Front, came thru last night.
The temperature went from the 80’s to the 40’s with a wind chill of 39 degrees due in part to the 18+ mph wind gusts.
