That’s right folks…On Saturday 1/6/18 at just after 7 am, the temperature in Mahopac, NY was -12. Not believing the car thermostat, I checked two different weather sites and it was confirmed. I don’t think that I need to dwell on just how cold it was with the wind chill! By the way, a week after the snow and cold, it is going to be 50 degrees and raining.
The last few days here in Mahopac, NY have been brutally cold. Daily highs have been in the teens with lows close to zero. To add insult to injury, tonight it looks like the temperature is going to drop to below zero!! The picture in this post was the first thing I saw when I decided to venture outside today. Needless to say, I was met with a biting cold that literally stole my breath. So I took a picture and I hope that it conveys just how cold it is here!
Let me know if the picture reflects the bitter cold that I experienced.
Ice cold blue sky
Provides no warmth at all
Trees stand guard, waiting for new life
Snow covered landscape
Cruel wind blows through naked trees
Icy branches sway
Lonely crow stands watch, waiting
The new year awakes, sober
