Steve Bartlett: 

It’s certainly a wet, windy morning.
Makes me wondered what to the sun.
This summer and September certainly spoiled me, and made me forget where I live.
Being awoken at 3 by water bouncing off the barbecue and to the doors of the old barby blowing open and shut, certainly brought me to the Newfoundland weather we all know and love.
Anyway, we’re going to get more of it, according to the Environment Canada forecast issued at 5:30 this morning.
Here’s their weather run-down of the next couple of days and turkey weekend....

Showers or drizzle. Amount 2 mm. Fog patches. Wind north 30 km/h gusting to 50. Temperature steady near 11.
