Starting Music for Thursday, Feb. 10, 2022

Good morning, NE Ohio and the rest of the world! It’s Thursday, Feb. 10th –the 41st day of the year. Here in the Hall of Fame city, we have cloudy skies to start the day, an expected low of 29 degrees Fahrenheit early this morning, and an expected high of 36. Brace yourselves, one more “warmish” day and then the bottom drops out over the weekend! We saw a trace of precipitation and 0.00” of snowfall yesterday and overnight. The recorded overnight snow depth dropped 1” and is now approximately 8.00”. Winds are out of the SW at 13 mph, barometric pressure is down at 29.82, and the humidity is up a bit to 73%.

The sun came up 1 minute earlier than yesterday at 7:25 a.m. and will set 2 min. later than yesterday at 17:54 hours. The moon is now waxing gibbous (68.2%) and will be out again at 12:27 p.m. It set early this morning at 3:05 a.m. On Friday (Feb. 4th), the sun hit our atmosphere with a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME), causing a relatively weak geomagnetic storm that still managed to disable several dozen Starlink satellites. They had been launched the previous day and the storm caused them to start falling back to Earth where they will likely burn up completely in the atmosphere during reentry, as they are designed to do.

Today is World Pulses Day –so get those legumes in! On this date in 1763, the Treaty of Paris ends the French-Indian War as France is forced to relinquish all of it’s new world territory except New Orleans and some islands. In 1942, WWII forces a halt to all civilian car production at Ford, and in 1955 Bell Aircraft shows off a fixed-wing, vertical takeoff airplane –so that idea’s been around for a while.

Today’s birthdays include actor/comedian Jimmy “Hah-cha-cha-cha” Durante, Walter Houser Brattain (transistors guru), swimmer Mark Spitz (he was our generation’s Michael Phelps), Greg “The Shark” Norman (golf), and Roberta Flack –
