It isn't my fault that too many coffee graphics assume that the morning is the only time people drink coffee!!!
Because, hey, it is about 1:30pm here... and I am drinking my third luscious cup of the Nectar of the Gods, we call coffee!
I am having a yummy Green Mountain Hazelnut Cream, with half n half and no sugar. Yummy!
Today is rainy and yucky. According to my www.accuweather.com forecast today's arthritis index is 'very high'!!! Meaning a 'very high' likelyhood of pain. Yeah, no crap Sherlock.
I shouldn't dis them... they are the first weather service to include an index like this and it is great!
Here is what their Arthritis Index - 'What is this?' section says:
Among the types of weather that may increase joint sensitivity and arthritic pain are:
1. Changes in atmospheric pressure, especially falling pressure
2. Changes in temperature, especially lowering temperature
3. High or increasing relative or absolute humidity
4. Relatively low atmospheric pressure
5. Low temperatures
Arthritic pain can be especially severe when these conditions are combined, such as during chilly, damp weatherwhen pressure is low and falling.
Now, AccuWeather has developed an index that combines all of the weather factors that may affect arthritis sufferers, and summarizes the most likely severity of weather-related arthritis pain in one easy-to-understand scale, from Low to Extreme. Available exclusively on AccuWeather.com, the AccuWeather Arthritis Index forecasts this level for each of the next several days, so arthritis sufferers can have advanced notice of when they are most likely to have increased pain, allowing them to take appropriate medication and to better plan activities.
