Aside from some gusty winds this afternoon, I’d say the weather on this mid-October day was quite nice. I mean, who can complain about temperatures in the 70s with no humidity? Well, I am sure someone will find a fault with today’s weather, but you won’t find that person here. The first half of Sunday will feature the more preferable conditions, with clouds and showers moving in by the evening.
