This picture taken from my living room window pretty much sums up the state of the weather in Astoria today, confusing. The National Weather Service is predicting snow but today has seen very little action to that end. One minute the sun was in full view then twenty minutes later it was completely obscured by dark and very threatening clouds.
Snow is not unheard of in these parts but the receipt of a significant amount is a pretty rare event. Lets just say that it’s more likely that your neighbor’s kids will own a boat than a flexible flyer sled.
Just to be on the safe side, I will make a trip to the basement before turning in this evening to be sure that my snow shovel is ready for action.
