It is another fall-like morning around the Inland Northwest with a large band of clouds spread over the area. These are being brought to you by a pretty vigorous low pressure system passing north of us over British Columbia. It is vigorous, but pretty much moisture starved. The cloud base is up at 20,000 feet, and any rain that is found this morning will be over the mountains near the Canadian border. The clouds did keep the temperatures up overnight as the official low in Spokane was 49 degrees this morning. As the day goes on the clouds go away, this afternoon we will be back into the sunshine and temperatures will be rising to the low to mid 70s. It still looks like we are on track for more summer weather again for the end of the week and over the weekend. 80 degree temperatures will be back on Friday, and we should be well into the 80s Saturday and Sunday under mostly sunny skies.
As I have referenced before, this Sunday will mark the first church service in our new building. That building is still a work in progress so casual attire will probably be the best bet. Sawdust and dirt will no doubt be in attendance. The time of this service is 9:00am, so that is a half hour later than our typical beginning for the first service. I am planning to have a group picture taken of all who are in attendance so that we can put it into the Time Capsule that will be placed in the cornerstone of the new building. That way, people 50 to 100 years from now can all laugh at how goofy we look. I will be issuing all of you personal invitations in the coming days for this grand event.
