Winter's Last Hurrah (Hopefully)

Mornin'!  It's 30° in Wildwood.  The sky is clear and moonlit/starlit.  It's windy and cold.  In fact, we're back to the wintry, frozen tundra ambiance out there as the snowfall over performed (the local weatherman's words; not mine).  I'd say about 6-7" fell from this Nor'easter; hopefully the last snowfall we'll see for a long time (like 8 months or so).  There's a crunchy topping to the layered snow and anything cleared away is icy and beginning a bit of a meltdown.  I'm surprised to see our street plowed this early morning too.  But, we've got our work cut out for us as the dig out of the vehicles and making poopy paths for the pooch is happening by hubby as I type.  So for today's'll be partly cloudy/partly sunny.  The temps will hover around the low-mid 30s but it's the winds that will be in the showcase.  Wifting (I mean wafting) from the NW we'll be feeling Gale Force Winds at 35-40mph all day into early evening making this hump day feel like a huge dose of Winter's blast.  Again, hopefully not again for a long time.  But, it is still March and March is a Lion.  I can almost feel the Lamb peeking around the corner.  The meltdown is suppose to start tomorrow as temps go back into the 40's but today...staying in the 30s with major chill factors. the 20's.  Whew...let's go Spring!
