I leave the house early enough so streets were passable this morning. The forecasters had warned us that an inch or two of snow was possible Monday night into this morning. But things change and the weather is one of them. We just had a light dusting and no ice. A couple of times I doubted my sanity and so did some others at work, however I’ll drive later on.
I had no problems and the few cars out at 6 a.m. behaved themselves. The most fun came while crossing MLK bridge. The pavement was totally dry, but that wind! I tried to imagine 90° and almost did. Then here would come another gust and I came back to my senses, both of them.
I am reminded of my older brother and parents who live in Florida. They rarely suffer through this stuff. Rick says one reason to live in Florida is that he can tell me I don’t. I remind him that I have longer days in the summer. I know that does not even things out (ask Jan) but it helps.
On another positive note, I see where the time for local sunset will start to reverse a week from this Thursday. I have no sure idea why this occurs a week before the solstice. It may be due to Earth’s orbit being an ellipse instead of a true circle. Any other ideas out there?
