This morning Digger and I took our daily morning walk, and the snow was falling. It was only a light snow but it made everything look pretty. I like this kind of snow and the Lehigh Valley has been very lucky this winter when it comes to snowfall. That is, unless you like the snow, then you are not so lucky.
So far, the 2011-12 winter has averaged warmer than normal, with temperatures in much of the Northeast averaging at least 5 degrees above normal. The 60-day average was within the top 20 warmest on record at all but one of the first order stations in the region. This winter's prevailing storm path, combined with the warmer temperatures has kept significant snowfall at bay. Consequently, there is not a lot of snow on the ground, especially when compared to last year.
Even as I write this the snow that fell this morning is disappearing. The one thing I love about an early morning walk when the snow is falling, it is very quiet. There wasn't a sound this morning, no birds, no children, and no cars.
But now it's back to normal, at least for now, I hear it is suppose to be cold and windy tomorrow, so enjoy today; and that's another day in Catasauqua.
