Good morning! Happy Saint Joe’s Day. Nothing like some good Italian Pastries. Three weeks to Palm Sunday. Partly cloudy and 37 degrees in Delmar, NY. There is a north breeze at 7 mph. The skies will clear around 10 am.
While I didn’t have Italian pastries for breakfast, I did use some blueberry muffin mix in the waffle maker, so I’m super sugar high. I could bounce off the walls with all the sugar energy I have this morning. It was sweet but I don’t think I’ll do it again because of how sweet the mix was. I do like the corn muffins waffles a lot though. And I will be looking at getting some premium waffle mix when I go to the store shortly.
Sort of overslept this morning so once this blog post is done, I will get in the shower than off to Shoprite, and pick up supplies for the week. I want to avoid the crowds after people get out of church. I have to start Big Red for the first time since last week but it’s free of snow because of the sun and the fact I kept brushing it off during the blizzard.
Today is the Pine Bush Hike at 2 pm. I’m not leading it so don’t blame me if you don’t like the route. I’m sure it will be good. I guess we will be cross-country skiing with all the snow. Should be a nice afternoon. I just got to get shopping before that.
Today will be mostly sunny, with a high of 41 degrees at 4pm. Five degrees below normal. North wind 7 to 10 mph. A year ago, we had sunny skies and a high of 42 degrees. The record high of 78 was set in 2012. 9.6 inches of snow fell back in 1971.
The sun will set at 7:07 pm with dusk around 7:35 pm, which is one minute and 9 seconds later than yesterday. Today will have 12 hours and 9 minutes of daytime, an increase of 2 minutes and 54 seconds over yesterday. Tomorrow is the first day of spring.
Tonight will be mostly clear, with a low of 21 degrees at 5am. Seven degrees below normal. North wind around 7 mph. In 2016, it got down to 22 degrees under partly cloudy skies. The record low of 2 occurred back in 1967.
As previously noted, there are 3 weeks until Palm Sunday when the sun will be setting at 7:31 pm with dusk at 8:00 pm. On that day in 2016, we had mostly cloudy skies and temperatures between 46 and 27 degrees. Typically, the high temperature is 55 degrees. We hit a record high of 77 back in 1991.
