Next cold front/New Child Safety Seat Law/Happy Anniversary

Tropical Atlantic is quiet. In the Pacific, Tropical Storm Patricia is bringing rain, rough surf and gusty winds to the tip of the Baja of California. The storm is forecast to move past the tip and weaken as it heads west. Further south, there is an area with less than 30% chance of developing.

On Wednesday, highs will be in the 40s and 50s across the northern Rockies, northern Plains, Great Lakes, Midwest and Northeast. Across the southeast, highs will be in the 80s and 90s with scattered showers and thunderstorns. Highs will be in the 60s along the west coast. Note: the winter weather advisories for the northern Rockies and some flood watch areas in the southeast and in California this evening.

For Houston, Wednesday will be warm and muggy with some thunderstorms. Cold front arrives Thursday and brings some dry and pleasant weather over the weekend. Morning temperatures will be in the 50s on Saturday and Sunday. It will be a great weekend to head to the Festival at St. Laurence in Sugar Land.

Tomorrow, October 14th, Gordy and I celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. But what's in a date? Originally, we planned to marry on the 15th but couldn't get that worked out. We chose that date as a tribute. It just so happened that October 15th was the anniverary of Gordy's maternal grandparents. Gordy's Grandma was so excited about us having the same anniversary. We didn't have the heart to tell her that we had to move it to the 14th. That is one example of when a little lie is a good thing. Grandma Sondag is no longer with us, but I know that she was very happy about our wedding being on October 15th.

Sarah's school sent home a post card with an Update on the Child Safety Seat Law. I'm not sure what it was before, but now the rule is:
All Children Who Are Less than 8 years old and less than 4 feet, 9 inches tall MUST be properly secured in a car seat or booster seat.
For more information, go to the source:

Sarah is already 8, but she is only 4 feet, 1 inch tall. I can tell you that without the booster seat, she wouldn't be comfortable at all...seat belt strap would cut right across her neck. Gosh, I'm 6 inches (or so) past 4'9" and I can barely get comfortable in the back seat. I'm kind of surprised the age isn't higher.

Well safe driving everyone.
