The Weather The weather promises to be pleasant today: The low during darktime was 40°, and the forecast high is 70°. There is but a slight breeze. It is sunny, and the sky is clear. Hopefully, this weather will continue through Thanksgiving. It would be wonderful to have pleasant weather—in particular, since I shall be grilling a turkey breast. I also intend to complete the cooking of the dressing on the Weber grill.
