Spoke too soon – it is back to snow and winter

Posted By on February 25, 2017

Last night while posting about the shockingly mild February 2017 and “hinting” at the front rolling in, the change came. Nothing major, but definitely not 77 degree!

After the sunrise, the gray sky move from west to east brought a late morning snow shower just to remind me that it is still winter — put the flip-flop away Rich! (photo at 7AM above vs video below at 10AM)

EDIT 2/25/2017 PM:
Adding a couple more morning sunrise photos since I'm still trying to learn my new camera (even for a lifelong "primarily film" photography hobbyist the learning curve is substantial).

    We’re north of you and had 70 yesterday and today it is 40 degrees colder and snow as well. Which mother nature would make up her mind! 🙂

    • Unusually warm for all of February that is for sure. Hopefully we can make it through March without a significant snowfall … although that would mean I wasted time in putting the snowblower on the John Deere 330 this winter! Ugh!

    Hi Rich,

    I believe a part of your website may have been hacked. Specifically, if you take a look at this article:


    Near the top of the article there is a link called “PDF version of the article here”

    If you click that link, it will send you to the hacker’s website, which is an affiliate hunting blog.

    It seems like a hacker accessed your website and added this link into it to get free traffic and boost their position in the search engines.

    Just thought I would let you know as this could be prevalant; if it happened here, chances are it’s also in many different parts of your website. I would strongly recommend removing the hacked link. The owner of this website has hacked hundreds of other sites just like he did with yours, including government websites, the IBM and NASA websites, and university websites.

    Good luck!

    • Thanks for taking a moment to mention the alias link. Once again the reason I have inched toward linking only to saved content that I archive (ie. myarchive.us or more recently the Amazon S3 server … which was down today BTW! I’ve also shortened over 1000 links with my YOURLS shortener – richc.us ).

      Dead links particularly from “shorteners” can come back to haunt as “it may have” in this case? I appreciate your taking the time to mention it. I’ve corrected the PDF link but will keep an eye anything further. If you see something, please let me know. Thanks.
