The top news story this week, as you probably guessed, is the weather. For us on the Hill, the hot news item would have been Vice President Joe Biden’s visit, but even the weather upstaged that one. Yes, hurricane Sandy has certainly made her mark, using her army of skanks, Rain and Wind (please don’t name any of your future children this), to take away Kenyon’s 15 minutes of fame. Shame on you Sandy! But in all honesty, we shouldn’t complain too much. Sandy has been pulverizing the East Coast and the Caribbean causing flash floods, leaving many without power or worse. And through it all “Mayor Bloomberg” has kept us informed on the status of New York City, a.k.a. half of Kenyon’s hometown.
For Gambier, the weather looks like it will remain this mess of rain, strong winds and some possible snow mixed in for the next couple days. Today there is a 100% chance of rain, winds up to 50 mph and a high of 39 degrees. A flood watch will remain in effect until 8:00 p.m. Be very cautious on the roads for possible flooding and ice.
