Cold rain and snow? Here comes sunshine?
What's Mother Nature up to at your house?
It was a long end to the winter this year in the northeast but spring and greenery en masse (along with pollen) have sprung! It is a true joy each year to watch people get out about with the business of planting in the garden. Hope you don't have allergies...
@ 3pm today in the northeast.
Is making a mess east of the Rockies, dumping heavy snow in KC and St. Louis and making a mess in Denver. Think we'd be used to it by now. Tomorrow the east coast gets it. It's been a bold March so far but that won't stop me from getting the snow tires off the car.
15 degrees this morning with a half foot of snow in the coffee state (Vt., Green Mtn. Brand). March is always problematic. In like a lion, out like a lamb. Better than last year when temps in the 80s heralded in an unseasonably hot summer preceded by a tornado season to be reckoned with. Let's hope all lives are spared the funnel tube menace this year.
WHERE THE HELL ART THOU?! 14F and blowin' snow here in the cheese belt.
Mee-eh, biggest snow of a meager season.
Biggest snowstorm of the season due to blow through these parts in about 24 hours. Probably upwards of a foot of snow. One good thing is that snow doesn't last long this time of year. In fact, I'm changing the snowies out on Friday. For better mileage.
I left New york City where it was Cold Rain & Snow..... in the 20's
I'm in Naples Florida where it's Here Comes Sunshine....in the 80's
Nemo was a lamb in central NJ.
Posted an album of midnight pictures if anyone cares to see:
Hurricane conditions on the Cape have eased as Blizzard Nemo starts to move out. There is an astrological (monthly) high tide at 10am and barrier island communities like Hull are being highly urged to leave immediately. In Ma. there are no mandatory evac. orders allowed but you'd have to be pretty stupid to stay (I'm watching waves break on backyards). This has the official label "Blizzard" stamped on it as there were three or more continuous hours of sustained winds over 40mph. Peak gust 75mph.
Worcester Ma., reporting 27.5 inches. Hartford and surrounding areas are unofficially reporting 36 plus inches. Most of central, eastern Ma. and southern NH & SE Maine are reporting 18-24". No subway in Boston today, never mind airport. Official Boston total 21.5" as of 8am.
Hundreds of cars buried out on the Long Island Expressway.
If you live in Tahoe or Steamboat Springs or Vail or other great ski area, they are great cause they get this kind of snow on an almost continual basis. No biggie. In the densely populated NE the power outages become increasingly serious as people need shelter who have electric heat. Currently there are 400,000 homes without power.
Time to kick back, do some fine cooking and do a small amount of shoveling, it hasn't stopped blowing and drifting yet.
