Snow Globe

A cold high pressure sliding down from the arctic, moisture pulling up from the gulf, a weaker jet stream (than last weekend's storm) that is just north of NYC, and it does seem we are on target for a good snowstorm tonight and tomorrow. People were talking up the last storm, but I usually pay little attention when there's lots of weather hyperbole. This storm, however, should deliver. I won't hazard a guess as to how much NYC will get.  For those who hear at the office or in the warehouse, "global warming, ha - look at all this snow," Meteorologist Jeff Masters has a blog post explaining why we can have more snowstorms with a warming globe.


In the mean time, my plants are saying, "local warming." These growth tips have been up for about a week or so. They are near the building and in the sun, so tend to come up early. I'm pretty sure they are narcissus and am pretty sure they are a harbinger of spring no matter how much snow we get tomorrow.

  2. how could you?! Climbing in mountains, seeing flowers, and watching out for sharks in the deep blue sea?

    But it is nice, the snow- and I get a snow day!

    I'm thinking of a trip to the BBG for some Japanese garden photos.
