Cold Turkey

Thu., Nov. 27, 2014- Happy Thanksgiving!  I hope your holiday is going well so far.  Here’s a little light reading for you as you digest all that turkey and the fixin’s:

You probably noticed it was very cold today.  In fact, it was one of the top 5 coldest Thanksgivings on record for Rockford (not that we wanted to set a record like this)!

We tied for 4th place with a high of 25°.  That is 16° below average for this time of year. This is only the 10th time since 1905 that we’ve had temperatures in the 20’s for Thanksgiving!

We also had a few flurries.  We are usually dry for Thanksgiving, so this is uncommon too. Snow has fallen on Thanksgiving only around 30 times over the last 109 years.

I hope you managed to stay warm today.  Good news- we’ll be back in the 40’s by this weekend! Have a great rest of your holiday!
