A perfect travel day awaits. It's nice not to be in a hurry this morning. We want to savor the scenery today. "The times, they are a changin'" as Bob Dylan once sang. Here's the Flagstaff NWS prognosis for today and the next few days to follow:
HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL PEAK ON THURSDAY AND MAY BE THE WARMEST READINGS WE SEE FOR SEVERAL MONTHS.
A SIGNIFICANT WEATHER PATTERN CHANGE WILL BEGIN TO DEVELOP ON FRIDAY-THIS WILL END THE MILD FALL WEATHER THAT WE HAVE SEEN THIS WEEK.
CONFIDENCE IS HIGH FOR THIS SIGNIFICANT CHANGE WITH STRONG WINDS...COLD TEMPERATURES...AND WIDESPREAD RAIN AND SNOW SHOWER ACTIVITY.
Okie, dokie, since this is the last great weather day for "several months," we might as well kick back and let the good times roll.
Driving through this neck of the woods is one of life's greatest highway driving pleasures. Kanab's motto "Greatest Earth on Show" echoes in our minds no matter where we look.
Speaking of mottos, did you know Utah ditched their time-honored "Greatest Snow on Earth" motto a couple of years ago? Yep, they paid some consultant to help them come up with a new motto that's basically spayed and neutered. So what is it? "Life Elevated." Huh? To what? And where? Life elevated? Come on. Are we in a downtown high rise or what? OK, no rants allowed here so we will stop this mini-rant now. For our own two cents worth, we believe Kanab's motto says it all about Utah: "Greatest Earth on Show!"
