I Am a Proud Eagle Scout!

May 28th, 2009 by Matthew Leach

Usually if I miss a day of posting it’s because I was unable to find much time if any at all to sit down and write something. Yesterday was most certainly one of those days. But I suppose I was busy for one reason in particular: I had my Eagle Scout Board of Review last night.

Now, those that know me well were surprised to hear I actually completed all my merit badges, my Eagle project and set up a time to have a board of review. Why? Because I am not exactly the most gung-ho, avid scouter. And those that sat in on the board knew that. I enjoyed scouts up until I was about 14 and then I lost interest, and I mean fast. I pretty much gave up. I was 4 merit badges and a project away from getting the award, but I was sick of it. For whatever reason I believed my life at 14 was much too busy to pursue my Eagle award. Pssh, yeah right. I was just being lazy.

Anyway, after a talk with my parents when I was about 16 we decided to start it up again and at least finish up the badges and project. It took me two long and frustrating years to finish everything up, and last night was the riviting conclusion to my youth scouting career. And I thought the conclusion was at age 14! It almost was. I probably won’t fully appreciate the award until I’m older, though. Regardless, I’m glad I stuck with it and was able to prove myself worthy of the award even if my participation was lacking during the 2 year time frame between 14 and 16 years old.

So…that’s why you didn’t see a text OR video forecast yesterday. Look at me! Making promises left and right that I can’t keep! But hopefully you can understand why I didn’t have enough time to produce something and upload it yesterday. But I PROMISE I’ll have a video tomorrow! :)

Now let’s talk about weather because I know you are all DYING to know what it’s going to be like for the next 7 days. Do you want the good news or bad news first? Good news? Well, this is one of those situtations where the news is good for some people and bad for others.

GOOD NEWS: Temperatures will likely hit 80 tomorrow

BAD NEWS: Temperatures will likely hit 80 tomorrow

Indeed, a very strong ridge is projected to build into our area overnight delivering high temps into the “summer-like” category tomorrow meaning we could have our first 80+ degree day of the year tomorrow! But there’s emphasis on the word *could*. I’ll let y’all know if we reach that number.

Wanna know my personal opinion? Anything above 80 is too warm. Plus, my bedroom window faces west so…yeah, it ends up being a rather uncomfortable night for me. But hey, one 80 degree day won’t kill me (and there I go jinxing myself!).

Saturday will be a good deal cooler, but still partly to mostly sunny with highs in the low to mid 70s.

The rest of the weekend into the first half of next week look downright gorgeous with mid to upper 70s for temperatures under mostly sunny (if not plain ol’ sunny!) skies.

The latter half of the week looks a little cloudier, but tempertaures will remain in the 70s—although they’ll be in the low 70s. That’s still comfortable right?

Have a great evening!
