New England Weather
The weather was dramatic today.  At 10 A.M., the thermometer beside the back door registered 65 degrees; it was sunny, and I toyed with the idea of short sleeves. Within 2 hours, it poured, and the temperature plummeted. Then the sun came out again, and then it sleeted. Now it's raw, and ice is redeveloping.

Later-  It's 10:30 PM now, and the temperature outside the back door is 15.  That's a 50 degree drop in 12 hours.  The wind has picked up, and standing outside one hears the eerie sound of water freezing everywhere.  The eaves are cracking, some copper implements I have hanging are tinging, the branches on the trees are snapping horribly in the cold wind. It's distinctly eerie, the night alive, crackling with brittle sound.  It's clear again, the stars shining sharply, too.
