Snowcover = Cold
Posted by Pete Bouchard
And just like that, our landscape is transformed...
Well, not technically. But we have joined the 'great link' and extended the snowcover over North America.
Why does this matter? It's winter, we have snow. What did you think would happen?
Yes, yes, you're right. But the fact that the snowcover has expanded, and the daylight is weak and brief, means the cold can grow..and fester...and linger. Which brings me to the next 7-10 days: it will stay cold. Snow won't be melting and the deep freeze will set in.
Prepare for some numbing mornings at the bus stop, on the platforms, navigating the streets. Single digits in the suburbs, low 10s downtown. It's mid winter fare. And, although it may make you 'bitter', it will keep the storms away.
