sitting ducks…I think not!
Amazing, incredible, phenomenal, mind-blowing. All these words came to mind this morning as the sun’s light lit up the landscape below. I have never experienced visibility like today’s visibility.
On days like today, 130 miles doesn’t seem accurate. The Adirondacks looked as clear and crisp as the Greens. The Atlantic glittered and seemed close enough to reach out and touch. This morning Chris from State Park came over to show us a couple of tankers sitting off the shore of Portland.
The easterly winds and fair weather will continue, at least through Friday. The strong high pressure will gradually move northeast, making room for the remnants of Hurricane Ida. The resulting southeasterly flow will slowly put an end to the exceptionally clear and dry stretch of weather. Moisture from Ida’s remnants will filter overhead increasing clouds and water vapor, slowly diminishing the visibility. However, I think we’ll all enjoy it while we can!
