Where's Max?

Major windstorm coming this weekend?


Is there? Weather.gov doesn't mention it.


These towns are so quiet these days I have a vision of tumbleweed blowing through them. 


Yeah, I drove down Columbia Tpke to Florham Park yesterday at rush hour, and I'd say traffic was only a quarter of what it usually is.


73 Friday, down to 28 on Saturday.  That kind of shift usually is accompanied by strong winds.


If we lose power in high winds, many will lose their minds...


Weather takes on less significance when you are advised to stay home.  Working to keep the community engaged becomes a much more vital activity.  Max, if you are taking a breathing and reading this, thank you so much for what you are doing.

 Nah, not when it's happening over 36+ hours.


To be frank, there just has not been that much interesting weather lately.

 Thanks, Joan.

What's interesting is that this has got be the mildest winter in quite awhile.

Any idea how we stand on average temperature and snowfall compared to the past?

 Sorry, no idea except it was in several places a top-5 warmest winter.  Don't really have time to look for details.


Not sure if this is a max question but the air today seemed extremely fresh. Is this just my imagination? Could it be that fewer cars on the road has such an immediate effect on air quality?


Fewer cars. Fewer planes. 


One of the lessons learned from all this - we all knew that we were having a big impact on the environment. But this is a big old smack on the head - our actions really do make a difference ... 


I am so sorry about this, the weather is completely my fault.  I just installed a clothesline, so you can expect at least three months of wet, humid, overcast days


a little drift:

I've just been wondering what my mom and her parents did while quarantined (maybe 1918 flu, maybe something else).  No TV of course, maybe no radio, maybe no phone?  They did have gas and electricity.  I think they had a "Victrola," books, the newspaper, maybe board games.  Not sure they would have played cards; they were pretty strict.  Neighbors left food on the porch for them...

Well, my great grandparents were adults and married during that time.  They ended up having nine children total.  Coincidence? Maybe  oh oh

 I had measles in the late 50’s and because of concerns over possible side effects was confined to my darkened bedroom with no reading or television allowed...

Unbeknownst to my mother every time she left the room I’d make a dash to my window to lift the curtains and watch my friends playing...

If it weren’t for the radio I wouldn’t be sane today...
