Tuesday March 8, 2011

Things are really warming up right now! I know that sounds funny, especially since temps are still below freezing, however with the additional daylight (10 hours 54 minutes!), we are consistently warming to the 20s each day this week. What a HUGE difference from 20 below zero last week.

Tonight is expected to be a good opportunity to see the aurora borealis. So far each time we have seen a spectacular show, the prediction rating has been a 2. Well today it's predicted to be a 3! I'm not sure I'll get a chance to see it because I hope to be asleep at 1am.

Current Conditions at 6:00 a.m.:

Temperature: 1.9 ABOVE zero
Skies: Clear (Yep, it's clear, I can see the big dipper out there!)
BP: 30.04 and falling
Sunrise: 7:35 a.m.
Sunset: 6:30 p.m.
