It's Cold Out There!

This morning when I started the car, the dashboard thermometer read 3 degrees. Then the VPR Eye on the Sky report said some spots in the Adirondacks registered in the teens — below zero. Yikes!

Here's a 3-and-a-half-minute video I found that shows the snow that blew in yesterday — made by a guy who has a site called Vermont Means Business.

Yup, it's cold out there and yes, we got some snow and ice, but I have to nitpick here and point out that you can't call "nor'easter" every time a few snowflakes fall. A nor'easter is a fairly specific kind of storm that hangs off the Atlantic coast and dumps precipitation on us with prevailing winds from the northeast (because of the cyclonic nature of the systems picking up wind and energy out at sea and throwing back on us here in northern NE).

I'm just saying...

I didn't say he was a crackerjack meteorologist.

Nor'easter or not!! I'm glad that I'm in AZ!! Looking good Brad!!


I had fun creating the video, it was really just on a whim as my father-in-law picked me up from the airport.

And thank you native Vermonters, now I know the difference between a Nor'easter and "a wee bit of snow"
