Oftentimes, when it’s gusty outside, there’s a chance that the power will go off temporarily.

The skies have been cloudy and the tree that I can see out of my bedroom window has branches and leaves that have been blowing back and forth rapidly.

My mother, Rosie Barnes, is an avid watcher of the weather report on the local news, and during the noon hour she reported to me the weather conditions as being just 41 degrees above Fahrenheit with winds at 21 mph, gusting to 33 mph, but warned that a frost could be coming overnight. According to, the average high is supposed to be 68 degrees today with a low of 40. Well, the temperature isn’t going to get anywhere near that high number, and with the gusts of wind, it’s going to feel even colder than 40ish degrees.
