Snow!

Don't know if any of the non-Boston crowd has any interest in what the snow that came in yesterday looks like, but here's a series of shots from my office window, over the course of the day.




Spent some time shoveling this morning--it's pretty dense wet stuff, with an icy crust (it turned to sleet/freezing rain late last night). However, temperatures are hovering a bit above freezing during the day, so combined with the limited solar gain (dammit, why doesn't wunderground.com have solar radiation in W/m^2?!), the streets, cleared sidewalks, and cars are clearing off pretty well.

This is all ridiculous, considering that on Wednesday, I was walking around with my sleeves rolled up (high of 68 F/20 C). Climate instability? What climate instability? [smirk]

See, that kind of weather variability is totally normal around our parts.

All the locals regarded it as highly unusual -- unnatural, even -- when we got a cold spell in January that lasted for two weeks. Two whole weeks of cold weather! Madness!

Excuse me for a moment...
*ducks out open window to check*
It's about 70 here, and sunny. Has been for the past week or two.

What were you on about, again?

When I left for CA last week, it was 14 degrees in New York. It was 75 in CA. When I got back to NYC it was 60 degrees. But it didn't last, because the nasty nasty snowstorm came in. Why did I move again?
