For the last couple of days, we'd been above freezing in the Binghamton, New York area. This ended last night. We are missing a snowstorm New York City is getting now and it is eight above zero F (-13 C)near the small town in Northwest Arkansas where I lived years ago. Meanwhile, it is the calm before our storm, predicted for Wednesday.
During our latest cold wave, the weather did what it did when it gets bitterly cold here - the sun showed itself. At this time of year, that's about the only time we see it. On Friday, as it first went above freezing, the sun actually continued to shine! But, on Saturday, the sun started to disappear, along with the snow.
On Saturday, my spouse and I were able to get out for an outside walk, and that was cause to celebrate. Nature was enjoying the thaw, too.
Then, a little further up the line, a conifer asked me to take a picture.
Winter isn't finished with us. How is your weather?
