12:08 p.m.

From approx 11:47 a.m. to 12:06 p.m., I watched a Kentucky Warbler forage on our backyard. It foraged on the west spirea bed, mainly close to the hostas and the seedum. It also spent time in the heavily vegetated middle oval bed. But it also foraged on the lawn between those two areas. I took photos with our phones, but I'm unsure how they will turn out.

Kentucky Warblers like to skulk along the ground. It's a rare sighting for me to see one at Magee Marsh. Two years ago on Thursday evening, May 3, 2018, Deb and I saw two Kentucky Warblers foraging near each other along the Magee Marsh boardwalk. That might have been the only Kentucky Warblers that I saw last decade.

In the aught years, I saw a Kentucky Warbler at Rossford Island View Park. Also in the aught years on one of the International Migratory Bird Days (2nd Saturday in May, which is today), I saw a Kentucky Warbler. I have seen a couple more over the years.

Of all of the birds that I have observed in and around our yard here in West Toledo, this bird today, the Kentucky Warbler, may be the most amazing one. It's more of a southern bird anyway, I think.

In our yard over the years, I have seen an American Woodcock, Red-headed Woodpecker, Summer Tanager, Golden-winged Warbler, a Blue-winged Warbler in our next door neighbor's oak tree, and on three different Mays, I have observed a Mourning Warbler.

In May of 2019, a Mourning Warbler hung around the west side of home, foraging among the dense growth of Lillies of the Valley, which meant that I had a hard time seeing the bird. I think that I observed on two days.

Also last decade, maybe 4 to 6 years ago, I observed a Mourning Warbler across three mornings. I assume that it was the same bird. I saw it and heard it sing often. I also got tuned into is sharp, loud, pinging callnote. On the third morning, I only heard its callnote.

And in the aught years, a Mourning Warbler sang in our backyard for two hours, but I never saw it because it hung out among the densest shrub in our yard, which at that time, had branches that went to the ground. Mourning Warblers also like to forage on the ground, among protective vegetation, making them hard to spot. I never saw this bird. I only heard it.

But I watched last year's Mourning Warbler a lot.

Anyway, those have all been great bird sightings for our yard and around our yard, but I would say today's Kentucky Warbler is the biggest surprise of them all, and the most unlikely bird to see in our yard of the ones that I have observed over the past 18-plus years here.

10:58 a.m.

Barney and I walked from 9:58 a.m. to 10:54 a.m. That was our longest walk in a while. We mostly walk for 35 to 40 minutes. During the walk, cumulus clouds moved in. The sky is now partly cloudy. It was breezy with temps in the 30s. I wore my heavy, flannel-lined jeans, wool socks, a wool sweater, and my crocheted wool items, which were the beanie hat and scarf, both made using merino wool from the Stonehedge Mill, located in northern Michigan.

Barney did great on the walk. He led for all or nearly all of the walk. On some walks, he slows down, and he ends up walking behind me, toward the end of the walk, but not today. Barney was full of pep. This is his kind of weather.

Barney still has his long, woolly, winter coat of hair. Deb made an appointment this morning with Clip N Dales, the groomers that's located near us. The earliest that Barney can get into the groomers is June 3. Deb booked the appointment. Fortunately, it will cool to seasonal for the next seven days, but who knows after that.

area forecast discussion
national weather service cleveland oh
654 am edt sat may 9 2020

.synopsis...
high pressure will enter from the southwest today and settle
over the tennessee valley tonight. low pressure over the upper
mississippi river valley on sunday will move east towards the
area. this low will move over lake erie on sunday night before
departing for the new england states for monday. high pressure
enters the region for monday and tuesday.

&&

.near term /through sunday/...
snow showers continue over portions of northeast ohio this
morning and will continue eastward through the next several
hours. a better connection of moisture has entered the region
with the clouds coming from the northwest and snow has become a
bit more invigorated as the sun rises over the region. haven`t
raised snow totals all that much, but some better decreases in
visibility will be expected with the snow showers this morning.
outside of this, the forecast remains generally on track.

previous discussion...
the very unseasonably cold air has arrived as advertised and most of
the forecast area remains in the upper 20s to lower 30s this
morning. this cold air, along with some very modest synoptic
moisture, has allowed for some lake effect clouds and snow showers
to form off lake erie. these snow showers are much more isolated in
nature than previously advertised (due to a much drier air mass),
but the main band of snow is slowly working its way east from north
central ohio towards the i-77 corridor of cleveland and akron. the
best window for snow remains brief this morning through about 15z
before losing organization over the region. any accumulations remain
largely non-existent with light amounts in northern ohio and nw pa
and most noticeable on grassy or elevated surfaces.

high pressure builds in from the southwest today as some brief upper
ridging enters from the west. this pair of features will back winds
more towards the west throughout the day while keeping much of the
area dry. the forecast area will lie between this high pressure and
a departing low, which will allow for breezy conditions over the
region. winds gusts of 25 mph or slightly higher are expected over
the area. high temperatures will recover best out west with some
areas getting to the 50 degree mark. clear and dry conditions should
allow for low temperatures to cool considerably yet again and
temperatures in the 30s are expected. more frost/freeze headlines
will likely be needed.

a shortwave trough enters the northern conus tonight, supporting low
pressure over the upper mississippi river valley. this low will move
east on sunday into the great lakes region. backed winds ahead of
this system should bring warmer air into the region along with some
better moisture. high temperatures should jumped considerably
higher, back to the mid to upper 50s for most. as the system enters
the forecast area, have increasing pops on sunday afternoon and
evening as rain is expected to spread into the area with this
surface low.

&&

.short term /sunday night through tuesday night/...
the short term begins sunday night with models taking low pressure
east across lake erie. will have likely to categorical pops for rain
through the first half of the night and then bring in snow or a mix
in places. monday rain will taper from the northwest as high
pressure and drier air move in. may however take until mid
afternoon. still best chances will be southeast. monday night and
tuesday look dry with building high pressure. highs monday in the
40s. highs tuesday upper 40s to mid 50s.

&&

.long term /wednesday through friday/...
tuesday night and wednesday models continue to show high pressure
and dry air in place across the region. wednesday night into
thursday the high moves off the east coast as low pressure moves
into the central plains. a warm front east from the low will extend
into southern ohio. the front will lift north across the area
during the day thursday. friday the associated low will move east
through the central lakes dragging a cold front through the area.
highs wednesday will range from the lower 50s to lower 60s. thursday
highs will reach the mid and upper 60s. friday look for highs 65 to
72.

&&

.aviation /12z saturday through wednesday/...
the main story for the first half of the taf period will be lake
effect snow showers and clouds. low clouds and snow have spread
over northeast ohio and northwest pennsylvania this morning. the
snow has become a bit better invigorated and some better
visibility drops have been noted at kcle and kcak as snow went
through earlier. the window for some mvfr conditions remains at
kyng and keri for the next several hours and have a non-vfr
mention at both terminals. high pressure building in from the
southwest will bring clearing conditions and some breezier
conditions this afternoon. all terminals should pop up to vfr by
this afternoon and remain there for the rest of the taf period.
mid-level clouds will begin moving in on sunday as low pressure
enters from the west. any rain with this system appears to be
after the taf period.

outlook...scattered rain and/or snow showers and non-vfr possible
late sunday morning through monday.

&&

.marine...
will continue with all headlines this morning. models show low
pressure over new england with high pressure from the central plains
to the lower ohio valley. winds have dropped back a bit to near or
just below small craft criteria however winds will be increasing
again during the morning so small craft conditions will
continue/return. conditions will persist into tonight before turning
southwest and diminishing. sunday evening/night, low pressure will
move east across the lake. winds will turn northwest behind the
low. expect wind speeds from 15 to 20 knots with winds lasting
through monday as well. a small craft advisory will again be
possible although at the present time wave guidance remains below
criteria. monday night through wednesday winds will remain generally
light and under 15 knots.

very interesting idea. i have heard libraries mentioned as possible community media sources. in toledo, each branch could produce some kind of weekly or bi-weekly publication that focuses on the area served by the branch.

Hair salons, barbershops, nail salons, spas, and other personal-care businesses may open their doors starting May 15, while restaurants may offer service in outdoor dining areas that day and invite customers inside for sit-down service beginning May 21.

Bars may do the same — as long as they can maintain social distancing. There won't be an immediate rush back to the dance floor or gatherings around the bar. But tables could be placed in those general areas to maintain distance between parties.

I don't know how our neighborhood bar The Orchard Inn can operate well under those conditions. Sitting or standing at the bar has always been one of our favorite ways to hang out at a restaurant or a bar.

We will continue to support restaurants by ordering take-out food, but I have no plans to visit a bar nor a restaurant, not even for outdoor seating, anytime soon.

But he warned Ohioans must still practice social distancing, should wear face masks, and should stay home as much as possible. He and his health director, Dr. Amy Acton, fully expect an accompanying increase in infections, hospitalizations, and deaths with the new freedom.

The businesses will be guided by new safety measures that will significantly change the experience of going out to dinner or getting a trim. Patrons may have to wait for services in their cars or in lines outside for the start of their hair appointments to reduce the capacity in buildings.

Restaurants will seat people in groups of fewer than 10. Tables will be 6 feet apart or separated by a barrier, whether the back wall of a booth or by Plexiglas. Meals from salad bars and buffets will be served at the table and will not be self-service.

The experience sounds miserable. Since it's late spring, we can either prepare our own food at home or get take-out and sit outside in the backyard for the next six months. We can visit with our neighbor in the backyard and sit around a fire. We can make our own cocktails.

No one expects diners to eat while wearing masks. But it will be up to restaurant and bar owners to decide whether their customers should be wearing masks while waiting for service or walking through dining areas.

Not every employee will be wearing masks, either.

“We don't want someone standing over a hot grill to be wearing a mask,” said Treva Weaver of Wasserstrom and Zoup! Eatery in Columbus. She chaired the group that recommended best practices for the restaurant industry.

On Thursday the state reported 46 additional deaths — higher than average over the last 21 days — for a new total of 1,271. There were also 88 new hospitalizations, also going in the wrong direction. But new cases were trending down, adding a below-average 555 over the last 24 hours for a new total of 22,131.

The key metric, in my opinion, is the number of hospitalizations at this moment. Even if the "current" hospitalization number is seven-days-old, that's okay because trends can be seen.

Dr. Acton said the number of people who can be expected to be infected by a single person with coronavirus has gone from two or three to one. But that figure could rise as people begin resuming activities outside their homes.
