The Howling Wind and Falling Temperature The wind is howling again today—as it did yesterday. I had a photo shoot yesterday morning that was cancelled due to the howling wind. At least it was warm yesterday—albeit cold in the morning (52 degrees), it was warm in the afternoon (low 90s). Today, it is forecast to be a mere 77 degrees at peak temperature, and tomorrow is forecast to be a bone-chilling 70-degree high! Soon, it shall be requisite to don long trousers, socks, and shoes! How I loathe the thought.
