THE GATHERING STORM
|BUDDY WATCHING KIDS TOBOGGANING ON WILSON AVE.|
Monday, 9:00 AM. 24 degrees F at the ferry dock, 20 on the back porch. Wind ESE, very gusty at times. The sky is overcast, with gathering storm clouds. The humidity is rising, now at 77%, and the barometer, now at 30.57", is falling like a stone, predicting snow tomorrow and Wednesday.
I see the Almanac has reached a milestone of sorts: over 200,000 page views since it first appeared in January of 2008. I would be the first to admit that I still don't know why anyone reads it, but for better or worse, it satisfies my literary inclinations.
Yesterday was a fine winter day, but a toboggan coasting down the hill on Wilson Ave. mystified Buddy, who saw it two blocks away and, true to his instincts, pointed it as it approached.
Hey Buddy, that's not a bird!
