First off, I spent an hour outside raking leaves this morning, on January 8th! Because we have no snow! And because our leaves held onto until Thanksgiving weekend, while we were gone, all fell off, and then it snowed or was incredibly wet. Until today. Why? Because of this:
Today: Increasing clouds with showers arriving this afternoon. Record high temperatures expected. High 71F. Winds SSW at 15 to 25 mph. Chance of rain 40%.
Yes, that would be the forecast for my town on January 8th, 2008. Crazy! I know some people are probably loving this. And I’ll admit that it isn’t unpleasant to be outside without a jacket. So, until the weather goes back to its normal self for upstate NY, I won’t be finding signs of the season.
