Yesterday, we took a Writers Half Day, knocking off for a late Chinese lunch, followed by a couple games of Scrabble.
Today, given the news that Winter, is, indeed and at last, coming to Central Maine, includes a trip to town to pick up necessities that we would have gotten on our next Regularly Scheduled Trip to Town, early next week, however! That is now inked in as a Storm Day.
This is what the next few days look like, here at the Cat Farm and Confusion Factory:
Winter is set to arrive in stages, starting tonight with a session of freezing rain, moving into Sunday with 1-3 inches of snow and ice expected. We get a breather Sunday night into Monday, except for temps ‘waaaaaay lower than we’ve been used to even on the overnights thus far, then Tuesday? Stuff gets real.
Tuesday Watching a potential winter storm. Snow during the morning will become a mix of wintry precipitation during the afternoon. High 19F. Winds NE at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of precip 100%. 5 to 8 inches of snow and ice expected.
Tuesday Night A wintry mix early will taper to a few snow showers late. Low 19F. Winds NNE at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of precip 70%. Snow and ice accumulations less than one inch.
Wednesday will be calm, with a little freezing rain on the overnight to keep our hand in.
On the one hand, 60F/16C on December 25 in Central Maine is Just Wrong.
On the gripping hand, I was enjoying this shovel-free time.
What’s the weather look like at your house?
