Valentine Day

Driving home from work today playing my iPod in random shuffle mode, a song comes on just as I turned on to the street where my house is located. The song is an instrumental that I don't recognize.

As I drive up to the driveway, I glance at the iPod to see what it is playing. It was a Paul McCartney tune from his first solo LP, McCartney. The name of the song was Valentine Day.

With 12,355 songs on my iPod, what are the odds?

No Snow

On the contrary, instead of snow, it was a beautiful sunny day with the temperature topping out at an unseasonable 52° F on Compounce Mountain. It hit 55° at BDL, which broke the record for February 14 high.

Snow IX

Good news is that the groundhog did not see his shadow.

Bad news is that it snowed, sleeted, and freezing rained. The snow was compressed by the sleet and freezing rain by the time I got to measure it, so I estimate that we received about two inches before it turned into a hard concrete-like crust. So the total snowfall is now 62 inches on Compounce Mountain so far this winter.

This is the worst winter in my lifetime snow-wise and we still have over six weeks to go.
