A frost this early is actually a really rare event.

Like once in a lifetime rare.

Weatherspark says that North Guilford area has a frost this early in less than .1% of years...

combine that with a late spring frost and this was the shortest growing season (143 days) in hundreds of years...

And I thought only the northern third of Maine were the ones with the freeze watches? WAY too early for that stuff!

You could drive from Maine to Ohio today and barely see a cloud. Blessed to have these sunny days. I didn't get it in the Spring. Didn't want it in the summer. Perfect timing.

Proof that it won't rain in Connecticut tonight: 71 degrees and dew point of 35. It also means it's going to get nipply again tonight.

Shoulder seasons are nice because 1 comes after out nasty heat & humidity and the other comes after a cold snowy period.


I think it's all about Acclimating. I acclimate pretty fast (usually within 2 weeks) so 60s will feel warm to you soon so Fall isn't bad.

It's not 60s that bothers me, it's 40s when I get up that does. Kind of chilly for shorts and sandals!

See, I knew I wasn't imagining how fleeting summer was!

And what do you think Spring has? 30s and 40s in the morning. I still am not convinced why people prefer spring. Its not warmer. Morning 40s happens in April and May too.

I felt the freeze tonight at New Britain Stadium the moment the sun set. The outfield time/temp clock said 50 at game's end. Went long due to scoring and the Bees manager getting ejected, etc. (NB won 7-4).

The last quarter moon looked absolutely huge rising in the east-northeast this evening! 😮🌗

A NYC weather blog I read said at one point Central Park had a humidity of 15% yesterday. They claimed all recorded incidences of humidities under that occurred during March and April for some reason, and said the one other day they could find outside of March and April that had a 15% humidity was 9/11 (the actual event in 2001!)

Another mid 40s morning in September. Blessed. Finally a year we don't torch in September.


Jinx. Here comes the heat




FYI.... Danbury tied the lowest temp for Sept 1-20 period. (records only since 1998)
