It is a spectacular day in Connecticut. The Sun is out and unfettered by clouds. The breeze is light. Everywhere I look things are melting.
There are some pictures at the bottom of the entry. You can see how the driveway has become visible again as has our ‘pet’ rabbit, Eddie. The ice on our front steps is melting and soaking into the brick.
Another day like this and we’d be nearly snow free. Right.
If there’s an opposite of wind chill it’s in effect today. The thermometer temperature is 30°, but it could easily pass for 45°. In a less enlightened time there’d be no hint another snowstorm is coming tomorrow.
My company’s Holiday Party, normally scheduled for this quiet period after Christmas and New Years, has already been postponed. It’s not the only thing that will close. Connecticut will roll up the sidewalks sometime Saturday afternoon. I feel bad about that because restaurants which make a large portion of their weekly take on Saturday nights will suffer. They had it better years ago when their customers would eat and get stranded.
I have checked and double checked the computer runs. They’ve been reasonably consistent with the precipitation amount and cloud temperature. The onset time has slid a few hours later from what I said yesterday. It’s an inexact science.
This will be a moderately large snowfall–more than 6″ but under a foot.
