We Interrupt This Blog To Bring You…….   2 comments

…..an amazing but welcome aberration of nature: this weekend’s temperatures. I’d intended a totally different post but the weather this weekend begged a blog!

Weekends being what they are, I was in the city. I knew it was going to be warm but I guess it didn’t sink in exactly how warm 65 degrees would feel after a Tuesday of snow and days of temps in the teens. If I didn’t know any better I would have thought it was a few days before Easter, not Christmas.

As the infamous “they”say, One picture is worth at least a few words

Judging by the temperature and the sky, it could definitely be April, no, it could be May!

But nightfall brought me back to reality, but in a joyous way. That’s the Christmas-lit Empire State Building in the distance.

It may have been night but the temperatures were holding their own. And people were loving it.

A couple of   hours later I arrived back at the Peekskill train station. What a difference fifty miles can make

Post Script

I awoke to what I thought was the foggiest morning I’d ever seen.

Then I realized they were fogged up. It was warmer outside than in. So I opened the windows. Yes, in December!
