Weather report

It's snowing here this morning in Southern NH.

It's been a weird month so far. It's not unusual for large stretches of January to be 24/7 below freezing. But this year, we just ended a four-day stretch of uninterrupted, round-the-clock, ABOVE freezing. My California friends will scoff, but that's a big deal here.

Historically, the third week in January is the coldest of the year here in NE. This year, in the past 11 days we've had 7 days above 40 degrees, and five of those in the 50s.

I heard somewhere recently that this January is shaping up to be the warmest on record.

What with the warm weather and rain we've had, all the snow had melted and the ground was bare, yesterday.

Today, we now have 5 inches of snow on the ground, and it's still falling.

In unrelated news, Andy Grumet, who I met at the Berkman Bloggers meetings last year down in Boston, has just moved to the SF Bay Area. I think I'm jealous.
