Felt [just a bit] like spring, today

I love when it gets warm enough that I don’t need a big knit hat to keep my noggin warm. That’s what kind of a day it was, today, here in northern New Mexico.

Yes, I know a bunch of the GOUSA and Canada were dealing with piles of snow falling from the sky. Here in La Cieneguilla, it was 50 degrees F, barely a southern breeze. I hauled out my headphones and did all my exercise walking with nothing more on my head than my Mister Robot cap and, as usual – to start the walking musical season off – Aerosmith.

    “A popular local aphorism holds that anyone who tries to predict the weather in New Mexico is either a fool or a newcomer.” http://langmuir.nmt.edu/Storms_Above/StormsAboveCh3.html [Article mentions Kurt Vonnegut’s older brother Bernard, who is credited with discovering that silver iodide could be used effectively in cloud seeding to produce snow and rain. Also awarded an Ig Nobel Prize in 1997 for his paper “Chicken Plucking as Measure of Tornado Wind Speed.” http://www.atmos.albany.edu/daes/bvonn/bvonawrd.html ]

    “Polar Vortex brings big chill to NM” (2/12/21) https://www.abqjournal.com/2358887/polar-vortex-brings-big-chill-to-nm.html
    “New Mexico is preparing for a weather whiplash forecast to start Friday.
    A polar vortex that is already affecting the central U.S. will bring three powerful winter storms to New Mexico. Much of the state will experience extreme wind chills, icy roads and blowing snow.
    Daniel Porter, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said this weekend and early next week could be the coldest period of time New Mexico has experienced since 2011.”
