Morning Seditionists

Nice While It Lasted

After some pretty shitty weather, spring arrived a couple days ago and I got to walk around outside at lunchtime yesterday (without a jacket, even – it was about 55°). Of course that’s all about to end. While it’s still warm today, it’s raining. The rain, snow melt, and ice dams are all combining to create some pretty nasty flooding in places. Later on this evening the rain is going to turn to freezing rain and temperatures are supposed to drop to below zero. So everything that’s wet now is about to turn to ice. And then we’re supposed to get another 16″ of wet, heavy snow on top of the ice. Thank goodness tomorrow’s Saturday (and it’s a 3-day weekend, in honor of my dad’s birthday on Monday) or it would be a real hassle dealing with the morning (and evening) commute tomorrow.

Happy New Year

And good riddance to 2017, which pretty much sucked all the way around. I wish I thought things were gonna get better in 2018, but I have my doubts. Still, one can hope. Speaking of hope, I hope everybody had a safe (and warm) night last night, and you’re getting at least one more day off before diving back into the rat race tomorrow. Here, like a lot of places lately, it’s cold. Currently it’s about -7°, but it’s supposed to get to double digits (above zero) today. Wednesday is the big warm-up day with a predicted high of 23 or so, and then things get nasty cold once more. Not great standing on the corner waiting for the bus weather, that’s for sure. So I’m gonna plan on doing as little of that as possible. It’s not much of a New Year’s resolution, but it’s all I’ve got.
