Now turning verey dark and dull with spats of drizzle and a gusty wind.

Saw my shadow on the ground amidst the gloom and wondered how the sun could be shining, til I noticed it was the shadow from a street light, in the day time.

Temperature 8.4c

Go figure, another watch!


... Winter Storm Watch in effect from late tonight through
Wednesday afternoon...

The National Weather Service in Anchorage has issued a Winter
Storm Watch... which is in effect from late tonight through
Wednesday afternoon.

Snow will spread over Nunivak Island and along the Kuskokwim Delta
coast late tonight. Winds will increase to 15 to 30 mph creating
areas of blowing snow possibly reducing visibilities to one half
mile at times. With cold air at the surface... precipitation moving
inland could fall as freezing rain Wednesday morning.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A winter storm means there is a potential for significant snow...
sleet... or ice accumulations that may impact travel. People are
encouraged to closely monitor this weather situation. Preparation
for this potentially dangerous weather event should begin now.

Since this happens so seldom there are no snow plows, same thing in Texas, where I'm from. It is really not practical to have a fleet of trucks to clear the streets for one, two, maybe three snow events a year.

As a result, the most they do is sand bridges, maybe some curves. The rest is up to the friction of tires and the warmth of the sun to melt it.

I totally understand that. In my mind, everyone had snow removal equipment. That is, until a few years ago when we were in SC. I had never given it much thought before that time, but it really wouldn't be cost-effective for some areas of the country to have expensive equipment.
