So you can see for yourself

Here’s a screenshot of my Weatherbug from a few moments ago.

Forget about "winter is coming".  It has arrived.
Forget about “winter is coming”. It has arrived.

So that is showing a temperature of minus 0.2 degrees Fahrenheit with a windchill of minus 22 degrees Fahrenheit.  I think this may actually be one of the coldest, if not the coldest, temperature I have ever experienced.  And I don’t think it’s stopped yet.

Sorry to keep going on and on, but weather (and weather history) fascinates me so I am just geeking out about all of this.   I am wondering if temperature records may be broken tonight or tomorrow.

Um, wow.

It’s not often that I will use the phrase “bitter cold” to describe the weather in Greater Boston.  But the temperature here has already fallen more than they thought it would tonight.  Currently it is 2 degrees Fahrenheit (1.5, to be precise) with a wind chill of -16 degrees.  That is bitter cold, at least for Cambridge or Boston.

And tomorrow was supposed to be the really cold night.

And that snow total just keeps on climbing, too.  In fact, I may just have to use another term that doesn’t get tossed around much… snowpocalypseageddon.

Cue the dramatic music.  Dun dun dun!

Maybe we need to worry about White Walkers after all.   Wonder how much snow we will have by tomorrow morning. Not looking forward to shoveling.

Ah, what a mess

The snow has begun, and we have already gotten a few inches, slowly and steadily, over the past 12 hours or so. I already shoveled the steps once this afternoon and already you can’t tell I ever did it.     Even early this morning when I got up to make breakfast before Kelly had to go to work, we already had enough snow to coat everything outside.

And now they are saying we may get even more than they originally thought.  I will get some pictures tomorrow once it has more or less finished.

In the meantime, I am doing some Portuguese home cooking.  Maybe I will do some pictures of that too.
