Good evening! Cloudy and gray ☁with the mercury around  25 degrees in Delmar. There is a west-northwest breeze at 7 mph. It’s just plain dark and dreary as we sit in traffic on the old 787 heading home to Delmar. Traffic is bad tonight.🚓🚕🚌🚚🚛🚗🚕 Must be a fender bender or something else. The sun was nice in my corner office overlooking the mountains until it sank into the clouds and got all gray. 

Tonight will be partly cloudy, with a low of 11 degrees at 5am.⛅ Six degrees below normal. Maximum wind chill around 3 at 5am; Southwest wind 5 to 7 mph. In 2017, we had mostly clear skies with more clouds in the early hours of the next day. It got down to 7 degrees. The record low of -20 occurred back in 1934.

Tonight will have a Waning Crescent Moon with 35% illuminated. 🌒The moon will rise tomorrow at 2:15 am. The New Moon is on Wednesday night with partly cloudy skies. The Snow Moon is on Wednesday, February 28th. The sun will rise at 7:00 am with the first light at 6:30 am, which is one minute and 15 seconds earlier than yesterday. Tonight will have 13 hours and 40 minutes of darkness, a decrease of 2 minutes and 36 seconds over last night. The days are getting longer slowly but surely. I can’t wait until it’s nice enough to go to the park after work with either my laptop or a good book.

This weekend I will probably stay in town and continue working on various electronics projects, 🔬:idea:⚡as I expect the weather to be quite cloudy and gray. I ordered some more Dupont lines today and two inexpensive 8 GB MicroSD cards to use for logging purposes with my Arduino. They will either be used for my GPS logger📡 I’m building or maybe a temperature logger I’m thinking of building. Won’t have either by the weekend but that’s fine. I want to replace the broken plexiglass and fix the case on my VMS / clock that cracked when I pulled the screen last Sunday. 

In four weeks on March 8 the sun will be setting at 5:54 pm, 🌼🌺which is 35 minutes and 17 seconds later then tonight. In 2017 on that day, we had rain, then later on mostly sunny skies and temperatures between 58 and 41 degrees. Typically, you have temperatures between 41 and 23 degrees. The record high of 68 degrees was set back in 2012.

I’m tired and I can’t wait until spring time, once the snow melts and I can get back on the road again. 🚗⛺Those days will return again I promise myself. I’m saving money by not traveling, and knowing that I will appreciate it more when those days return. 

Looking ahead, Columbus Day is in 8 months.🍁🍂

🍔🎆Only 105 days remain until the start of Memorial Day Weekend!😎⛺
