SkyWatch Friday ~ Calm Before the Storm

we got the lovely surprise this morning... SNOW... blizzard like snow rushing toward the ground. Did school delay? No, of course not. Because in NY it's regents week. Stupid state tests. I almost wrecked my car several times on my way to work this morning

By the time I got home the skies had holes of blue... I took some picture... there were storm clouds in the past and in the future...

Less than the a 1/2 hour later... blizzard like snow again... the calm before the storm

Be Safe.

SkyWatch Friday ~ Birth

The Birth of a Weatherman!

The morning began different from the past several mornings. The sun was visibly rising in the east, whereas for days it had been hidden above overcast skies. The sunrise was beautiful against the early frost on my way to work.
Today, was also a special day. 22 years ago my brother Jason was born, and ironically his birthday falls on a SkyWatch day. You see, he is in his final semester of college studying Atmospheric Science. And, boy, does he know weather!

I am so proud of all that he's accomplished, and his understandings of how the sky works...the earth, the oceans, the atmosphere.

The day closed out with brilliant fires from the sky against soft bright blues. Tonight's forecast calls for sleet, freezing rain, and SNOW! What a change 24 hours can make. . .

Happy 22nd Birthday, Jay!
