May 21 2022

Saturday Morning Report

When you step outside you will feel the heat already.  We will be aiming close to a record high, and one of the hottest Preakness events in the 147 years.  We have it on authority from a professional veterinarian that horses sweat and they are conditioned to deal with this weather.

Humans and pets are different. If you have outside plans, hydrate early with an extra cup our two of water early in the day.  As for your pets, consider keeping them inside, or avoiding the dog walk during the afternoon as pavement temps can burn paws.

*Disclaimer due to frequent questions:

I am aware there are some spelling and grammar typos. I have made a few public statements over the years, but if you are new here you may have missed it:

I have dyslexia, and found out at my second year at Cornell.  I didn’t stop me from getting my meteorology degree, and being first to get the AMS CBM in the Baltimore/Washington region. 

I do miss my mistakes in my own proofreading. The autocorrect spell check on my computer sometimes does an injustice to make it worse. 

All of the maps and information are accurate. The ‘wordy’ stuff can get sticky. 

There is no editor that can check my work when I need it and have it ready to send out in a newsworthy timeline. 

I accept this and perhaps proves what you read is really from me…

It’s part of my charm.
