Wind… and chill.

Here we go, back into the cold. It was in the mid 60s our area yesterday… 64°F (17.8°C) on our porch.  We’ll be lucky to get up to freezing today.  It was quite blustery during the night.

Hovering over the image pops up the approximate wind speed and location of the point where you have the cursor and, as the legend says, you can zoom in to the image.  The site does caution that the image is a “personal art project,” that there are no guarantees as to accuracy, and to “Please do not use the map or its data to fly a plane, sail a boat, or fight wildfires.”

Karen got a couple of pictures of daffodils and posted them on her blog the other day.  A lot of years, this is a good indication that spring is just around the corner.  This year, however, I’m not going to be counting on it.  The daffodils may just be confused because of the warmth we’ve had the last couple of weeks.

Winter ain’t over.

america, now that's cool!, weather, winter
