Western Massachusetts got ever so much snow.
It took a day and a half, pretty much, to finish falling.
At least it was no blizzard, no high winds --
just snow that would not quit falling.

I don't know how much.
In the parking lot, there was at least twelve inches
on top of my car.
The trouble was not on top of my car, but
behind the rear wheels, backing out of the space.
The lot had, thank heavens, been plowed --
it was just a question of getting out of the snowed-in space
and onto the plowed pavement. Needed to shovel first.
The snow was wetter, and heavier, than it looked.
Not heart-attack shovelling.

It's quite the winter wonderland here visually.

And there I was, under the delusion that the Western Isles were always wet in winter. Wildfire in February -- amazing.

Cold and grey in southwestern Ontario, with a bit of wind chill and yet more snow in the forecast. Utterly normal. Perfect for staying home with a book.

We also had a big wildfire, on Dartmoor. We've had a wet winter but the last week in the Westcountry has been bone dry with a strong (and vicious) east wind. The bracken and heather from last year is tinder-dry, so it doesn't take much to get it going, and gorse burns well too.

Braemar holds the record for the coldest recorded temperature in the U.K., -27.2C, achieved twice, once in 1895 and once in 1982. The reason for the very cold nights is that the location is in a frost pocket, which means it's surrounded by hills down which cold air from high up sinks into the valley where the village is. Scottish glens are often frost pocket candidates. There are several notable ones in England, at Rickmansworth in Hertfordshire, at Benson in Oxfordshire and at Shawbury in Shropshire. To get a really cold night in a frost pocket you need little or no wind, a clear night and, preferably, snow on the ground. It helps if there's a stagnating mass of cold air over the country, which occasionally happens in winter anticyclones centred over Scandinavia or Eastern Europe.

In Eastern Ontario, it's sunny and cold, even for here, what with a high of -15C for the day (with a wind chill of -23) and a low after sun-up tomorrow of -22C. There is little snow cover, and that does not bode well for the forests in the late spring. Unless we get more snow, they'll be tinder dry in May. This lack of snow cover plays merry hob with the military training cycle (the impact areas will be too dry even for high explosive) and the farmers' preparations for planting (they will not be allowed to burn slash and plough it under).

Still, the bright sun warms the heart, if nothing else, and it will not set until close to 1730. I can smell cycling weather in the offing, so I am on my way to my local bike shop to get my gravel bike out of hawk after its annual overhaul.

On this day in 1961 there was a partial eclipse of the sun in the morning. It was Ash Wednesday and we were herded off to church for that service in which the priest smeared greasy muck on your forehead with his thumb. The sky was cloudy and we didn't see the eclipse. From inside the church we could see the sun coming out, but by the time the service had finished and we were released the eclipse was over. I've harboured bitterness about that for exactly 60 years. I'm thinking that it may have sown the early seeds of my atheism...

Heheh. Speaking of smearing ashes, get this from the Guardian website:

A Catholic priest in Ireland is providing takeaway ashes in plastic sauce containers so parishioners can honour Ash Wednesday despite coronavirus restrictions.

A Centra shop in Clonmany, county Donegal, has helped Fr Brian Brady to pack and distribute ashes in 200 containers usually used for dips and sauces.

Parishioners have snapped up the containers so they can administer their own ashes by placing them in the form of a cross on their foreheads tomorrow. The ritual signifies repentance and marks the first day of Lent, a six-week period of penitence before Easter.

I just had a look at the weather radar plot for southwestern Ontario, and Stratford is right spung in the middle of the leading end of a snow system stretching all the way to Pelee Island in Lake Erie.

A few years ago I opened my car door in a good old Cornish gale, the wind caught the door and blew it violently wide open - and destroyed it. I had to do without the car for a week until a new door was fitted. Thank goodness for insurance. I was lent a rather unpleasant replacement car for a week (a little Chrysler something-or-other) but at least I could still get around!

Steve, I can relate. I was once blown flat on my face on South Street in Halifax when I was stupid enough to be out in a particularly violent nor’easter.

It’s a beautiful day in Stratford, Ontario: clear, blue sky, still air, snow-banks as high as an elephant’s eye. Me, I’m just thrilled that the municipal plow finally found my street, and wondering whether my neighbour will find his garbage bin before Easter.

Here in Missouri we are north of the storm that clobbered the southern US from New Mexico to the east coast. Texas got the most news coverage - there was snow on the beach in Galveston, and one day it was warmer in Moscow than in Fort Worth.

People have no water (frozen pipes) and roads are impassable because of ice and accidents. People have no power and no heat, and deaths caused by carbon monoxide are occurring because they try to use a car or charcoal to get warm.

I learned yesterday that the same weather situation caused snow in Greece and Turkey.

Earlier this week it was very cold here, -4 F or -20 C. (Plus snow and wind, but not very much.) That's colder than it's been for a long time. We were asked to turn thermostats down, which we did, and the power companies tried something new - deliberate rolling blackouts where areas receive no power for 30 to 60 minutes. We had one of those. Maybe it helped, because we did not lose power in our region.

Now it's 30 out. Nice and comfy.

A brisk wind blowing today
made it a little nippy for
the line of people waiting for their
COVID-19 vaccinations at the weekend clinic hereabouts.


The line HAD to go out the door and into the parking lot,
so as to observe the protocol of
social distancing,
with a single file of people the required distance apart from each other.

The good news:
clear sunny skies with no precipitation;
and the clinic organizers
kept that line moving briskly:
indoors the operations stayed on schedule and efficient,
so that that line that went well out the door
was a line that moved inside in a matter of minutes.

Like answering a rhetorical question steve tries to correct my sarcasm which is fun while Keb externalizes the threat of weather like a force beyond her control, which it is, but when I think of space and Earth weather my reaction to it is far less stressful. Boston will get 8 more inches of snow this spring. Charge will build up outside our atmosphere and Earth will send up lightening to equalize the charge . Differences that are trying to equalize have a beauty of their own. Even being struck by lightning can be a beautiful thing.
Since I can't stop weather I might as well enjoy it. I like a good storm. All interfaces have a clash of power be it a beach, hot and cold or negative and positive.

We met our daughter and her partner for the first time since Christmas Day today, in a lovely park in Truro, where they live. We are not allowed to go into their house, so today's lovely weather gave us a great opportunity to reunite in the open air. We took a picnic and spent several pleasant hours in the balmy air: lovely sunshine and 20C. Most Brits will think I'm lying, as it was far colder in almost all of the rest of the country, but we had it warmer than anywhere else. A really nice day, but a long drive at 130 miles return...
