CJ And Jenn’s Today In History For November 11, 2019
Good morning. Today is Veterans Day. For Veterans Day deals, scroll to the bottom of this page. The planet Mercury is in retrograde, so if you feel a little weird today, that could be the reason. Mercury passing between the Sun and Earth today could even cause animals to act a bit out of sorts. Today will be cloudy with a 10% chance for rain, 52. Storms overnight tonight then getting very cold.
