Thanksgiving Forecast

The following forecast was broadcast yesterday on CSWA radio! That's Cindy Swanson's excellent blog entitled Notes in the Key of Life. It makes me want to find a restaurant today that is serving TURKEY, my favourite meal.

I trust that our American friends had a great day yesterday. We certainly have much to thank the Lord for!

Here's Cindy's forecast:

Thanksgiving Day Forecast

Turkeys will thaw in the morning, then warm in the oven to an afternoon high near 190F. The kitchen will turn hot and humid, and if you bother the cook, be ready for a severe squall or cold shoulder. During the late afternoon and evening, the cold front of a knife will slice through the turkey, causing an accumulation of one to two inches on plates. Mashed potatoes will drift across one side while cranberry sauce creates slippery spots on the other. Please pass the gravy.

A weight watch and indigestion warning have been issued for the entire area, with increased stuffiness around the beltway. During the evening, the turkey will dimish and taper off to leftovers, dropping to a low of 34F in the refrigerator.

Looking ahead to Friday and Saturday, high pressure to eat sandwiches will be established. Flurries of leftovers can be expected both days with a 50 percent chance of scattered soup late in the day. We expect a warming trend where soup develops. By early next week, eating pressure will be low as the only wish left will be the bone.

Happy Thanksgiving Day, and may God richly bless you!

  1. Turkey, turkey, and more turkey. Today we made Turkey Pot Pie from lots of leftovers ... sure didn't taste a thing like the Thanksgiving meal. Thanks for remember your "south of the border" friends.
