Heavy rain associated with a tropical system could occupy parts of the East Coast. Find out where and when. http://ow.ly/lHJUy
It's unusually cool here today (40 degrees) and looks like rain this AM. UH-oh, that means the grass will grow again- bah.
So freaking humid here. It's nasty.
Winter Storm Janus is here, Philadelphia, NJ, and DE state of emergency. Was out in it til 3:30pm, was about 6 inches on the ground then. http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/weather/stories/PHI-Severe-Weather-Central-224616871.html
School cancelled tomorrow, probably only 3", but the roads are icy. Snow didn't start today until 11:00 am, but fell steadily after that.
http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/weat...line-and-Estimated-Snow-Totals-244960861.html Nor'easter to start tonight, snow emergency in Philadelphia, state of NJ. City offices, schools are already closed for tomorrow. Forecasting a 30+ hour storm, into Friday am. Heard on the radio earlier Septa (Phila. public transportation) may preemptively suspend some services so the buses don't get stuck.
School cancelled again tomorrow- at 8:30 pm, just a light dusting of snow, put out the trash & recycling, hope it gets picked up. I'm thinking about my friends down south, who don't usually get this kind of weather-stay safe & warm, folks.
Septa will be suspending all bus routes as of 10am. Spokesman said they had are getting stuck despite preemptive detours. Subway and El still running.
Just talked to someone in Frederick, MD. They got 18-24 inches there.
So I get on line today and have a warning from the NWS. Today it is 70, sunny and perfect on my little section of the East Coast. Tomorrow---warning---lol Winter driving advisory as temps drop 40 degrees and we possibly get freezing rain and 4 inches of snow. I want spring.
Late evening 4/15/2014: anyone else in the DC/Nova/MD I95 corridor seeing snow? It has coated the cars and bushes, in our yard. Beloved said that this is the latest he has ever seen it snow, here.
A slow rain -- and certainly a gentling one -- falls in the Catskills this October evening, trees in their oranges, reds, yellows luminescent against the green-black night.
Little chance of seeing the Blood Moon where I am tonight as, though the sun, moon and earth assume their positions,
the clouds outmaneuver each; nearlng dawn, the only reds and ochres will be the rainy colors of the soft October trees.
Two weeks past peak the autumn colors ever more delight, whole trees yellow red green like so many Jamaican flags, the season itself a mighty lion stalking Time, its prey. A Turner watercolor -- its tinted mists arising from valley to hilltop, dales awash in the slowly swooping colors of an October afternoon.

Meanwhile, a bit downstate, we continue to eye this warily.

Northeast prepares for 'crippling and potentially historic blizzard'
So, here I set this AM in long pants and sweatshirt, feeling a bit chilly. Need a sweater. It is -1, wind 10-15 gusts, and 41% humidity. Damned cold. I have lived in much colder climes, -20 or more, but little wind or humidity. This wind, cold, and humidity cuts through to the bone, more so than the drier 20 below - although 20 below would freeze your lungs more quickly.
I feel so sorry for those, human and animal, out in this weather. I wish there was something I could do.
