03.09.2019 1° over the Quabbin

We’re getting closer to Spring every day…mid-40’s today…but the nighttime is still the right time for making…ice. Maybe whoopee too, but that’s a bit personal. Yesterday my thermometer in the car said

Actually, the Forester gets better mileage than that.

It was a chilly start to what was to be a warmish day. Looking out over the Quabbin Reservoir at dawn, the sky developed some nice color.  Eventually the sun rose as a large orange ball, but I was more interested in twilight.

Another cold start this morning and a nice time spent at Chapelbrook Falls, to follow later.

  1. A pretty sky indeed.
    Your title might lead people of a certain age to recall the phrase “one toke over the line.”

  3. One degree is…Positive! Positive territory, that puts us one up on Lyfft, Tesla, Uber, and 90% of the other start-ups.

    The wind makes quite a difference. Here, 30 degrees with no wind can be quite comfortable, while 50 degrees with a stiff east wind off the water and any humidity at all can be let’s-get-out-of-this-weather miserable. It’s interesting that you had no wind. From the looks of those beautiful clouds, there clearly were some strong winds aloft.

    Chilly starts and warmish days mean we’ve entered the Season of Changing Clothes. On Monday and Tuesday of last week, I had long underwear on top of long underwear. On Friday, I was in a tee shirt with no socks — which I greatly prefer.

    • Fortunately there wasn’t much air movement that morning. We have had more than our share of wind chill this year. I’ll be glad when it is more an aid to cool off the hot days of summer. For now it can be “wind, wind. go away”. 🙂 Whatever the winds were doing, I appreciated their elevation.
      I’m still wearing thermals inside flannel-lined jeans and three layers inside my parka, at least as of yesterday. Today wasn’t too cold, but enough for our precipitation this morning to be all snow. Nursing back spasms so spent the morning on the heating pad with Bentley on my lap reading about fungal strands on my Kindle Fire.
