This is my post for the View from the Bedroom Window for the month of January. A continuing record. By January 5 we had 10 inches of snow and temperatures of minus 10 degrees last night. A Polar Vortex is promised in the next couple of days.
On Monday, January 6 it was rainy and foggy and 50 degrees. The Polar Vortex arrived on Tuesday, January 7 with temperatures of minus 18 and WIND. The trek to the henhouse was bitter. I had to wrap my face in scarf. But then the weather became milder. On January 11 it was warm enough, 38 degrees, for pouring rain! The snow is nearly gone.
On January 18 it snowed and snowed. About six inches. This morning the temperature was 21 degrees at 8 am. Beautiful, mild day as the sun came out.
January 26 and temperatures hover at Zero at dawn. Bright sun, brisk breezes; it is cold! As the old saying goes, the cold grows stronger as the days grow longer. Last night’s snow showers freshened the landscape.
January is over, but I am hoping for a lot more snow. Precipitation is what we need.
