Maybe it’s just me, but I find it very difficult to re-order clothing online. Even after studying the tag, I can never seem to find an exact match online. I was hoping to avoid a trip to the mall this evening, but it looks like I will have to go either Friday night or Saturday. Sucks, but I don’t want to order the wrong thing and have to return it. You would think you could just type the tag into a website, and the details would pop up on the screen for re-order. But evidentially, life isn’t that simple.

Well it’s the Hump Day Commute home. Traffic is moving well. Three days remain until New Years Eve. Then it will be 2017, and one year closer to my retirement in the year 2050. 31 degrees and cloudy here in the city. There is a west-northwest breeze at 9 mph. 

Still feel a little sick this evening, body aches, stomach sickness, and a bit out of it. Probably just another common cold. So be it. I’m ready for tomorrow’s snow having a good winter coat but I don’t expect it to be a major winter event. 

Tonight will be mostly cloudy, with a low of 26 degrees at 5am. Quite mild for late December. Nine degrees above normal. West wind 5 to 8 mph becoming calm. In 2015, it got down to 24 degrees with periods of rain and snow. The record low of -18 occurred back in 1933. New moon tonight. No stars with the clouds.

Tomorrow will snow, mainly after 8am. High of 35 degrees at 1pm. Three degrees above normal. Southeast wind 5 to 11 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New snow accumulation of 3 to 5 inches possible. A year ago, we had rain, snow and a high of 35 degrees. The record high of 71 was set in 1984. 6 inches of snow fell back in 1915.

It doesn’t sound like a major snow storm. Warm temperatures will minimize snow production and keep the roads from getting snow covered. Maybe 4 inches if even that. The snow will come down slowly and won’t be a major event at least in the city. 

  • 1 inch – 9 AM
  • 2 inches – 1 PM
  • 3 inches – 6 PM

Tonight I probably will go to the maul to see if I can get another sportscoat for work. My current one is wearing out and I really should have two. At $100 a piece I might try to get two if in stock. I would order online but I don’t know the size. 

In four weeks on January 25 the sun will be setting at 5:00 pm, which is 30 minutes later then tonight. In 2016 on that day, we had mostly cloudy skies and temperatures between 38 and 18 degrees. Typically, you have temperatures between 31 and 14 degrees. The record high of 61 degrees was set back in 1938.
