Every year, it seems we are having a stranger and stranger January. (And February. And March....)
I thought winter had come on Black Friday, when we got down to four above zero F (-15.5 C). Or that we had a large snowstorm.
Then we had one of the most cloudy stretches I can remember. However, on Friday and Saturday, the sun actually came out and I got to remember what the sun looks like.
|Never used to be like this on January 5 near Binghamton, New York|
Today, we are having strong winds and blowing snow (which isn't sticking). At least the temperature is above freezing.
Yes, it could be worse. Just about a year ago, we went down to -2 F (-19 C). Thank heavens that wasn't today.
And we had ice sculptures in downtown Binghamton. Not this year, though.
The snow will come soon enough - I hope, though, that it doesn't come in April, like last year.
I remember when we started having this kind of weather about six years ago. Before that, it was a given that snow covered our ground from November through March with little break. You knew February, in particular, would be brutal. Now, things are all over the place. Warm in January. Snow in April. That kind of thing.
Even the clouds look different.
Does the weather ever frighten you?
