No Shadow for Phil - Early Spring!

Mornin'!  It's 15° in Wildwood NJ.  It's clear and starlit with a very light breeze making a 10° windchill.  The island's wrapped in a blanket of white.  We received about 3" of the white stuff yesterday into last evening.  It was a dry, light snowfall and easy to shovel and sweep.  Tough hanging outside though as it was bitter cold last evening when hubby and I went outside to get our snow removal workouts.  It'll feel balmy today as Ms Sun begins to rise and shine with temps in the mid-upper 30s.  There's a mix of those milky clouds in today's sky with winds out of the West at 10-15mph.  Hopefully we'll still have some meltdown.  Tonight... mostly clear, temps in the low-mid 30s and breezes out of the W-SW at 10-15mph.  Tomorrow... more clouds and sun (even more cloud cover than today) with temps even warmer (low-mid 40s)!  I expect some kind of a meltdown this weekend. Punxsutawney Phil (the weird groundhog phenomena) did not see his shadow this morning which means "early Spring" (that remains to be seen) as it's really... 46 days away!
