The weather this morning is particularly uninviting! It is windy, overcast, and chilly. Storm clouds fill the sky. This is not good. Hopefully, the weather will improve significantly by this weekend. Forecasts indicate that it will. It is seldom that weather forecasts are correct. Let us hope this time they are! The car show in Durham is Saturday, and good weather is a must!
