It is a never ending story, our winter weather that is.
This strange and confused weather of ours.
Our winter. Our winters as a whole. The Mid-Atlantic classic winters in general. The upside down winters, the roller coaster winters, the schizophrenic winters ...
It goes on and on …
A week ago it looked like this. SO cold and frosty!
Like, say, Friday!
Friday was a bizarre and a somewhat GROSS day weather wise!
It was 64 degrees F (18C) when I left the house for my PW a little bit after 7 in the morning.
The weather was gray and foggy. And, also (obviously) WARM!!
When I got to the lakes, they were steaming. Clouds where literally streaming from the ice. Really, it was some kind of micro climate “lake effect”. It was fascinating to see it.
The ice was still thick, despite the warm temperature.
I can tell you one thing, I got SO warm and sweaty during my PW. It was almost like it can be during the summertime when my hands tend to get swollen due to warm weather.
Friday bizarreness---warm, wet, steamy and icy. ALL at the same time!
During the afternoon on Friday the mercury reached 70 degrees F (21 C).
Even more bizarre was the fact that it was humid on top of everything else. Just a very strange weather day.
Literally clouds rising from the lake ...
Saturday we woke up to strong winds and 27 F (-3C).
So, yes …
I rest my case.
Sunday was even colder.
Peter and I took a long walk in the afternoon. It was beautiful, but OOOO so cold.
On Sunday, big parts of the lakes were ice free.
Very strange since it had been so cold both Saturday and Sunday.
How ice forms is a mystery to me.
Monday-- aka yesterday--when I left for my PW it was 10 degrees F (-12C).
The ice had returned to the lakes overnight.
One other thing had returned as well, the ice porn. It was nice to see the formations again. Yes, it made me happy, haha!
A cold, cold walk it was, but a very nice one. I did not meet a single living soul while out. I was all alone. Me, myself and I.
Sure, it was a holiday yesterday as well, Martin Luther King Junior Day, that probably had something to do with it, too.
Yesterday's sunrise over an icy lake ...
CLASSIC ICE PORN!!! :-D
Well, I guess this wont be my last post on this winter subject.
Have a very nice Tuesday!
