The radar this morning shows a large area of rain to the west of us that is heading this way. There are a few showers scattered over the mountains to our north and east, but the bulk of the precipitation is yet to come. As I had expected last night, the thick fog that had formed has dissipated under the increasing clouds above. Today looks cloudy, wet and cool, with a high in the low 50s. The rain moves out by late this evening, and clearing skies will lead to another foggy start tomorrow. A little afternoon sun will burn through, and temperatures Thursday will be about the same as today. A few more showers will be coming through on Friday, and there is the chance for more wet weather on Sunday. In between, Saturday should be dry, although mostly cloudy.
On thing to look forward to on Saturday will be a birthday party for one of our church members. This is not just any birthday party, not at all! Gladys Kumnick will be 100 years old on Saturday. Born on October 24, 1909 she is throwing her own party at the Sons of Norway hall in north Spokane. Gladys is an amazing women. She is still totally self-sufficient, lives alone, drives wherever she needs to go, is still active in the church and shows no signs of slowing down.
