Politics, Weather, Photography, and the Dog
Monday 10 February 2014

Wow. Getting off the plane in New York last night, then taking the bus into Manhattan during a gentle snowfall (during rush hour, on the Van Wyck and Grand Central Parkway), reminded me why I went to St. Maarten for the weekend. Getting home to this made me ask why I didn't stay longer:

Today was the 20th day this winter that temperatures have dipped below -18°C at O’Hare. Tomorrow should be the 21st. That is triple the average of 7 days per winter. The record number of sub-zero days for a winter was 25 set back in 1884-1885. The way this winter has been going that record is certainly within reach.  50 out of 72 days or 69% of days this winter have been below average.

The medium-range forecast calls for a change, however. By Thursday it might approach freezing; next week it may even get warmer than that.

Meanwhile, the current temperature at Princess Juliana Airport is 28°C.
