Barometer

The barometer was invented in 1643 by Italian Scientist Evanglista  Torricelli.  The barometer measures how much air pressure is in the atmosphere. A very detailed explanation is on Wickipedia that goes into detail on how he discovered this.

In short when we are having low air pressure - weather is getting an artic cold wave.  Well Kansas and much of the country is experiencing this right now.

Don't get me wrong I love winter and wouldn't want to live where the seasons don't change.  This is us this morning.

Wow, 7 degrees! We are bout 25. So the higher the pressure, the worse the weather I guess. I have never quite understood barometers. Did you get any snow?

The barometer says it's 30.17 in our neck of the woods. I hope that means it will rain soon. The weather guys have been saying it will for the last few days. So far, zip.

I would say STAY IN and STAY WARM, but I bet you are way ahead of that game. The fireplace at our house has been going most evenings! Glad we don't have to count on it for our whole house heating...it's been in the teens and low 20's here at night, and several days in the 30's. Good history on the barometer.
