warming up

There was something different about today. It was hard to put my finger on it at first. Could it be the cold? Nah, that’s been the norm for this winter. Was it the sunshine, the glorious warmth emanating from that relatively averaged sized ball of burning gas? I think that must be it, though ‘warmth’ is certainly a relative term, considering our high temperature for the day is 8 degrees below zero.

Last week, I think we saw sunshine once or twice. This week is looking to be a bit different, with fog on the retreat as strong high pressure takes over from the southwest. It’s also going to get above zero, possibly above freezing by the weekend. As the ridge of high pressure slides to the east, the air will stop coming from cold Canada and start coming from the warm south. This will provide a respite from the bitter cold and maybe I’ll actually enjoy going outside again!
