Arctic air in CT 18.9 °F (-7.2 °C)

© All Rights Reserved
This is sort of what it looked like Wednesday morning at 3am. By 4:40am, the snow was changing over to rain here on the coast, but just a few miles inland, they got 6 inches of snow. The “dividing line” in Connecticut is the Merritt Parkway. The winter weather can be very different north and south of that line. This morning it was 21 °F (-6 °C) here when I first checked. Now it’s down to 18.9 °F (-7.2 °C) and still dropping.

There’s a saying in New England: If you don’t like the weather today, wait until tomorrow. That’s because the weather can change drastically from one day to the next. It’s not normally this cold here, this early in the season (and it’s not even winter yet). October was colder than normal, November was warmer than normal, and now we’ll find out what December has in store for us.

This picture is from an early snowfall we had Dec. 7, 2008. Like the temperature, snowfall here is also unpredictable, and can be radically different from one year to the next.

Beautiful picture! Nice to look out and see such a beautiful scene; but not so nice dealing with the difficulties of driving, sporadic power outages, etc. We were blessed with just high winds and frigid temps; no snow this time around. Looking forward to March!!!!

There is such beauty on the stillness. Makes you want to just stop and listen.
