Some day it will warm up but I just don’t know when now. With apologies to the Knickerbockers, that pretty much sums up the weather this afternoon. 39 degrees if you ignore the wind chill and the clouds. But be happy it’s the weekend. A cold and cloudy April weekend. The snow is supposed to hold off to until next week. Days are getting longer, despite the cold. 13 hours and 7 minutes between sunset and sunrise. Sunset at 7:30. Some clearing tonight, look for a low around 28. Breezy this evening but the wind will die down towards daybreak.

Took a bus down to the DEC world headquarters at 625 Broadway and I got my fishing license today. Sometimes this weekend want to hit up a local stream or two. Maybe Saturday. Don’t worry, the DEC world headquarters was an inept as any retailer. There computer was slow apparently and the clerk didn’t know what they were doing. State government is good at two things – red tape and taxes – despite what the press releases say.

Probably going to stay home tonight except maybe if I go for an evening walk. We will see. I’m looking forward to warmer weather and going to the park but so far I’m not seeing those conditions and in the foreseeable future. Thursday and Friday of next week is expected to be sunny but the mercury is going to have stretch to reach 52 or 53 degrees. That is still like 5 or 6 degrees where we should be in mid-April.

Seven weeks until Memorial Day Weekend…

61 degrees with light rain this evening. Some green leaves are starting to show up on the trees that have budded up for some time now. I’m not complaining about the mild conditions.

A surprisingly busy day at work. Just lots of little things, some unexpected. But overall a good day. Glad to see the markets are back up again. Traffic northbound on the 787 is moving slowly but 787 southbound is better. People are being safe, which is a good thing.

Tonight we are looking at low of 38 degrees with rain showers, tapering off late. Sunset tonight at 7:29 pm. Twilight close to 8 pm. New moon. Tomorrow, mostly cloudy with a 40% chance of showers. Cool temperatures with a high around 45 degrees which is about 10 degrees below normal. Cold weekend on tap too, rain and snow showers on Saturday with a high of 43 and Sunday will be sunny and 41. Oh, well.

Google Maps: 2015 Bethlehem Town Supervisor – Clarkson Margin

It's been a long-time since I've done interactive Google Maps of election results, but here is one, the Town of Bethlehem Supervisor race. Google Maps have some limitations in formatting, but they are better in the sense that they are interactive, and can be zoomed in show election results down to the block level. You can also click on the map to show the actual vote margin.
