This morning, I woke up, looked out and was shocked to see grass, the patio, the pond and very little snow. The day was dark and gray, but surprisingly warm (above freezing). I knew if I wanted a walk outside this week, today was the day.
I intended to go to the park, but decided it would be even darker among the trees and took a walk through the neighborhood instead. It felt so good to be comfortably outside. As I neared home, the wind picked up and it started to rain. I knew the storm was on the way.
The high today was 44F. The forecast high for tomorrow is 15F. And tonight:
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 7 PM THIS EVENING TO 12 PM EST WEDNESDAYI'm glad I made the time to walk today, in the gray before the storm.
