Out of the Blue

Well, we got socked with that snowstorm they predicted, not sure we got the full foot of snowfall they called for, but it's pretty deep out there. I'll have to tackle that in a bit, but with the temperature right around 2°F and a "real feel" of -29°F I'm not in any rush to head out there. Yeesh.

On why it is so hot here in California in January:

"Our weather is controlled by the jet stream, which is that band of high altitude winds that blows west to east across North America. The jet stream acts as the boundary between warm air to the south and cold air to the north.

Normally when it’s over California blowing through the center of the country you get sort of average conditions. But what’s happened is the jet now has this unusually far northward penetrating bulge over the western U.S. and a compensating dip over the eastern U.S. So it’s cold over the eastern U.S. and very warm over the western U.S."
