Not The Only Ones

Fellow Lyndon State College alumnus Jennifer Hannux is a creative photographer. On January 1, she started taking one photo every week from her porch that overlooks Burke Mountain so that the images would capture the flavor of the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont in every season.

Two weeks ago, the snow was still very much part of the landscape:

Last week, there were still patches of snow that remained. But today’s image was the FIRST one of 2018 that showed no snow anywhere, even on the mountain (Burke Mountain is over 3,000 feet tall).

If you would like to keep track of her new image every week, CLICK HERE.

I highlighted the photos on Fox 8 News at 10 p.m. on Tuesday, April 24:

The Weather Channel’s Birth

The Washington Post and the popular “Capital Weather Gang” released a wonderful article about the recently published book about the “pioneers” that brought about the birth of The Weather Channel.

CLICK HERE to read the article.

The idea started as a brainchild of ABC Good Morning America’s first meteorologist, John Coleman (left), and my former college professor, Dr. Joe D’Aleo (right) who became John’s producer for his national weather segments on GMA.

Rough Stretch

Yes, there have been a couple of days in the last 18 that have tantalized us with a little taste of spring, but only a handful.

The rest of it has been uncharacteristically cold, and not just by a handful of degrees. Any long-term departure outside +/- 2°F is statisatically significant. The last 18-day stretch has compiled a departure of 10°F colder than normal. It’s no wonder people are grumbling. Here is a sign found in Concord Township yesterday.

Sunset Markers

With such a contumaciously cold spring pattern, it’s important to remember that some parameters are not tied to a stubborn weather pattern… thankfully!
