Thanksgiving itself was a little different this year. All the kids were home, but Claire and I either had a virus or food poisoning Wednesday night. We were laid out for the day and had to postpone our turkey until Friday.
The Christmas tree was delivered this morning and now comes the fun part of decorating it. More on decorations to come.

I thought you might find this link to the history of Thanksgiving to be somewhat interesting.

Much colder air is filtering into the eastern half of the country. This link to Accuweather shows just how far south this air mass will travel. We will have some pretty cold conditions here with a low tonight expected in the upper 20's. Tomorrow night will see temperatures fall all the way into the low to mid 20's. This should give us a good hard freeze. The extended outlook is calling for a mild Turkey Day with much colder weather the first week in December.

Tonight should be a cold one. Little Rock is forecast to officially fall to 34, but I look for 32 here in Chenal Valley. Fayetteville will see 27 and El Dorado the mid 30's. Pam should even drop to the low 40's.
Monday brings change with rain and thundershowers moving in to the area. It will remain mostly cloudy and cool thru mid-week with chances of rain.
Hurricane Paloma continues to pound Cuba...and more snow is coming to the Rockies. No picture changes today since I'm posting from my laptop. I don't have very many pictures stored in this machine.
One final note today....Laura got me watching Storm Chasers on the Discovery Channel. It airs Sunday nights at 9:00. Comcast on demand has some of last season's episodes.

I usually don't put two pictures on a post, but Fall colors are at their peak between here and Fayetteville. We ran into a surprise downpour near Russellville, hence the rainbow. The sun did come out and as we drove the "Pig Trail" north from Ozark the trees were spectacular. The trees were also at their peak on the campus. All in all a great drive and a great ballgame.
