Impact

A little while back, we had approximately 30 inches of snow in one storm.  Once that became manageable (to the degree that it did), another few inches fell in a separate squall.  That, in turn, was followed by single digit temperatures.  A day or so later, we had rain, which turned to ice, and then back to rain before moving on.

Along the highways in this area are long ribbons of guard rail that have been crumpled as a result of the efforts to clear the roads from that original dump.

The snow melt and rain were captured by the many and varied cracks and crevices.  Once the temperatures fell well below freezing, the expanding ice turned some asphalt to rubble.

Yesterday, when these photographs were made, the temperature was 63 degrees.

Snow is in the forecast for Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Fiji is cleaning up from the initial battering of  Typhoon Winston, which was characterized by 184 mph winds.

This report from NPR provides an interesting look at the current weather patterns.

All of this is quite an impact.

Take care.
