Wow. More January thaw today– up to 50º briefly– twenty degrees warmer than it should be and just one degree shy of record-high. Plus, heavy rain and exceptional wind. Walking downtown today I was a little fearful that a stop sign might rip off its post and come flying at my head. Still lots of snow around, though. We’re going to have some serious ice-banks when this all re-freezes.
Anyway, no fire needed tonight! More concerned at the moment with the cellar flooding than with frozen pipes. But the frostiness will be back– by the end of the week they’re forecasting lows down in the single digits again.
