Ah, the Weather

It has been incredibly mild here this winter, with no hint of snow. Of course that doesn't mean balmy tropical weather either...right now it is 42 degrees with a 15-18 mph wind. How do I know this? A new weather station. Yes, Santa brought me a new weather station, and with a little luck, I will have a webpage up soon so that you too can tell what's happening here On the Cove.

New England weather is fickle, that's for sure. This fall has been very warm--yesterday, December 1st, it was in the 60's. The mallards arrived last weekend, at least a few, as well as a hawk that hung around the cove for quite a while. Last night a front came through and the rain, with some lightning, came down in sheets. A few minutes after the rain stopped, it was perfectly clear. This morning I was up at 5:00 AM (a door wasn't latched well and the wind was whistling in) and the stars were absolutely brilliant. Today the wind is blowing from the southwest which brings it right into the cove. This morning I see lobstermen moving their traps out of storage on the wharves and the float has been pulled for the season. Snow is predicted for Sunday.

Ah, weather in New England.
