Good morning.

 

Wish I could say I saw, heard, or felt the meteor last evening in Southeast Michigan, but I did not.

If this is for real, why wasn’t there been more news about it’s impending arrival?  Are we no better at predicting such events than the dinosaurs?  I gues their meteor was bigger than this one.

20 here this morning.  I was watching the news this morning and some Houston roads have been closed and people at a stand still for 5 hours.  I can't imagine how far traffic is backed up.  We're not used to this.

Dang, just looked at the radar, and looks like we were on the tailend of some snow. 31 but feels like 21. Cat elected to stay in this morning...^_^ Looks like Chuck and Bruce in the thick of it. Looks like a snow day it you want it...Carl...:emotion-21:

I also heard no advance notice of this. I would have loved to have seen it in person and might have even put up with the below zero temps to witness.

The news I heard said "experts" estimated the size between a golf and tennis ball! I guess hitting the atmosphere at 45,000 mph has that effect?

Looking at the sun streaming through the filthy windows.  Who has the magic pill for exterior window cleaning?  I know about Windex, ammonia, newspaper, alcohol, and microfiber towels. 

What else?

Elbow grease.

 

 

If you're doing a lot of windows, there's nothing better and faster than a squeegee made for glass cleaning.  It'll have a sponge/cleaner on one side and the rubber squeegee on the other.  Mix up a pail of glass cleaner and you'll be done in no time.

My wife and I were hearing some very odd thumping sounds late at night, like someone dropped a bag of concrete on our roof. I thought something broke under a snow load, but when I searched for damage, I didn't find any. 

 

She found out they are called frost quakes.......

Experts call the noises thermal expansion and contraction. That means the components in your home are shrinking and expanding with extreme temperature changes, especially with the sub-zero temperatures so many of us have been experiencing recently.

"There's motion because the outside temperature is different from the temperature inside of your house, so these differentials could cause movement in a different direction and could create that noise," Wentworth Institute of Technology professor Garrick Goldenberg said.

And when materials are tightly secured with nails or fasteners, and the pressure becomes too great, the energy may be released suddenly and cause a loud noise.

And as unsettling and nerve-wracking as they sound, it's not usually a sign of danger.
