Some friends and I hope to book a winter weekend in the motel after the roof that the tornado blew off is fixed or in a room that wasn't affected. News reports say that parts of it are still in use. However, construction noise can be a problem, too, for people who stay in the rooms where the roof is intact.
Our motivation for staying there is not to be at the scene of the disaster but to help the business which is family-owned, not part of a chain. This has to be hard on the finances, occurring during the high tourism season on the Cape. The owner said the roof was only about a year old. It's probably insured but there may be a deductible and loss of business may not be included.

Steve, it helped me to remember that the difference between Celsius degrees is greater than the difference between Fahrenheit degrees, so I entered those two temperatures into a converter. Of course I have no idea what the humidity was, either! However, when my home's indoor temp reaches 85F I am uncomfortable!

Stay hydrated!

All around us afternoons storms and rain... and the weather report keeps saying "lots of rain possible", but it is amazing how much of it keeps going north or south of us.
Sure, we get rain.. occasionally a lot of it. But there seems to be a 'zone' just north of Wash DC that dodges a large % of serious weather...

Now watch... I will have jinxed us by saying that....

The oddest things can feel reassuring to me.

For weeks I have been observing the consequences of the spring thaw.
The main road crosses, by bridge, the Upper Charles River,
and many low, marshy areas.
Some of the road's lowest spots are flood-prone.
And so I have watched the rising water level.
The riverbanks disappeared as the river got so high
that it merged with the wetlands and marshes on either side of its banks,

and it all looked like a great shallow lake with
vegetation of every size and shape sticking out of the water.

Today I rejoiced to see two things.
First, all that vegetation standing there
has got a ring of mud around it, right above the water's surface.

Second, little islands have appeared where there was only water before,
and the little islands coincide exactly with
the location of the riverbanks.

That means the water level, praise heaven,
is going down instead of up,
and with every lowering of the water level
it is less likely to flood the roads.

Who ever would have thought
that the sight of strategically placed mud
would come as such a relief.

Still nervously observing the broad shallow lake,
far too close to the level of the road and the bridge,
where the Upper Charles River and its banks ought to be.
Maybe this nice warm sunshine
will evaporate some of that spring thaw
and the water level will go down where it won't
threaten to flood streets and roads.

Look out the window,
and you see a sight fit for a picture post card.
The sky is THAT shade of blue that, when you see it, you wonder
if the photo has been retouched
because the blue is so intense and clear, the definition of pastel blue.

And the grass is green
and the forsythia is yellow,
and the magnolia blooms
have yet to fall off the tree branches. It's gorgeous.

Now, if only the water level would ease back down.
The spring thaw is in full force.
In my area we have some curled-up lengths of the Upper Charles River
and when I drive over the bridge, on Main Street,

I see the river over its banks and
covering the surrounding marshes,
like a great shallow lake.
God forbid it rises any higher!

If it rises any higher,
the road with my bridge
will flood in several low places,
and one nearby town
will turn into an isthmus, nearly inaccessible.

Am I in the northeastern United States,
or in the Four Corners region?

Spring is a rather different experience in those two areas
of the same continent.

What is going on outside the window
as I enter data at this public computer station at the library branch,
looks like spring in the Four Corners

-- the Four Corners, for those of you who don't know this expression,
is a cross-shaped formation of state lines in the lower Forty-Eight.
The four states in question are
Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona.

Spring there is not a rainy season.
Spring can mean moisture, insofar as the warmth of the season
results in melting snowpack on mountain peaks,
with the consequence of rising rivers and flash floods.
But the seasonal spring wind in the Four Corners,
in my experience,
is a warm and witheringly dry wind
which loosens up all the dried-up growth that turns into
that unforgettable sight,
The Tumbleweed.

At the moment I am looking at weather for tumbleweeds:
the sky is the driest possible blue, of piercing clarity
and not the remotest sign of humidity.
The wind is dangerous, in fact
power lines have come down in the last twenty four hours
and some people are still without utilities in their residences.

... and have I mentioned dust?
Which region has more dust in it?
