Went to sleep after a midnight drive in the convertible. Woke up to 2" of snow outside. We have a pretty standard weather pattern here that makes winters much more enjoyable than I remember them being in Boston. Right before most storms hit we get a high pressure over the area that sucks up a lot of hot air from the south as it moves out (at least that's what I think causes it, I'm no meteriologist). So, what we tend to get is warm southerly breezes and then hit by a storm. The warmer the air, the stronger the breezes, the more slammed we get by the storm. Usually. So last night, at midnight, it was above freezing. I'm not sure how far, but I'd guess somewhere in the 40's. The jet stream pushed out the high, moves in a low and -boom- we get hit. Not a whole lot going on in the city right now, but they say by the end of the weekend we'll have 5 feet of new snow on the mountains. You know, that real dry, fluffy powder that allows us to put "Greatest Snow on Earth" on our license plates.
