The oddest things can feel reassuring to me.

For weeks I have been observing the consequences of the spring thaw.
The main road crosses, by bridge, the Upper Charles River,
and many low, marshy areas.
Some of the road's lowest spots are flood-prone.
And so I have watched the rising water level.
The riverbanks disappeared as the river got so high
that it merged with the wetlands and marshes on either side of its banks,

and it all looked like a great shallow lake with
vegetation of every size and shape sticking out of the water.

Today I rejoiced to see two things.
First, all that vegetation standing there
has got a ring of mud around it, right above the water's surface.

Second, little islands have appeared where there was only water before,
and the little islands coincide exactly with
the location of the riverbanks.

That means the water level, praise heaven,
is going down instead of up,
and with every lowering of the water level
it is less likely to flood the roads.

Who ever would have thought
that the sight of strategically placed mud
would come as such a relief.

Still nervously observing the broad shallow lake,
far too close to the level of the road and the bridge,
where the Upper Charles River and its banks ought to be.
Maybe this nice warm sunshine
will evaporate some of that spring thaw
and the water level will go down where it won't
threaten to flood streets and roads.

Look out the window,
and you see a sight fit for a picture post card.
The sky is THAT shade of blue that, when you see it, you wonder
if the photo has been retouched
because the blue is so intense and clear, the definition of pastel blue.

And the grass is green
and the forsythia is yellow,
and the magnolia blooms
have yet to fall off the tree branches. It's gorgeous.

Now, if only the water level would ease back down.
The spring thaw is in full force.
In my area we have some curled-up lengths of the Upper Charles River
and when I drive over the bridge, on Main Street,

I see the river over its banks and
covering the surrounding marshes,
like a great shallow lake.
God forbid it rises any higher!

If it rises any higher,
the road with my bridge
will flood in several low places,
and one nearby town
will turn into an isthmus, nearly inaccessible.

Am I in the northeastern United States,
or in the Four Corners region?

Spring is a rather different experience in those two areas
of the same continent.

What is going on outside the window
as I enter data at this public computer station at the library branch,
looks like spring in the Four Corners

-- the Four Corners, for those of you who don't know this expression,
is a cross-shaped formation of state lines in the lower Forty-Eight.
The four states in question are
Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona.

Spring there is not a rainy season.
Spring can mean moisture, insofar as the warmth of the season
results in melting snowpack on mountain peaks,
with the consequence of rising rivers and flash floods.
But the seasonal spring wind in the Four Corners,
in my experience,
is a warm and witheringly dry wind
which loosens up all the dried-up growth that turns into
that unforgettable sight,
The Tumbleweed.

At the moment I am looking at weather for tumbleweeds:
the sky is the driest possible blue, of piercing clarity
and not the remotest sign of humidity.
The wind is dangerous, in fact
power lines have come down in the last twenty four hours
and some people are still without utilities in their residences.

... and have I mentioned dust?
Which region has more dust in it?

At the end of October,
the question was posted to this thread
if a weather event had traumatized me in my life.

I wasn't prepared for the question, so I blew it off.

In fact, the tradition of talking about the weather
in my experience is a sort of double-speak,
and I guess I am as guilty of this as anybody.

A retired Dominican friar, whom I used to encounter in the elevator
(he and I lived on different floors of the same apartment complex),
used to greet everyone he met, including me,
with a current update on weather conditions.
This social response had become a habit, second nature, with him.

Which is a commentary of sorts about communal living.
In St. Dominic's Order of Preachers, much is made about community life.
It is only a retired friar, perhaps in delicate health,
who is excused from living in a priory or some such
with any number of fellow friars.

I never suspected that Father such-and-so had been traumatized
by a weather event in his life.
I just thought he was stating his neutrality,
like Switzerland,
in the world of pro- and con- social interactions.

In like manner,
my posts to this thread have kept it visible
whilst other BS threads catch fire, smoke the place up, and crash.

This is not to speak of
the place that vigilance has in my life.
Is all vigilance based on fear? So be it.

I got by with a little help from my friends.

I went out and pushed some snow off my car, maybe 1/4 to 1/3 of it. Then I went inside for a break. When I came out, someone had finished removing the snow and even cleared about a foot of snow behind it. No neighbors were outside, so I don't know who did that.

I backed the car up until the wheels started spinning. I couldn't go forward or back. Unfortunately, I was now blocking a neighbor's car. My appointment for therapy on my broken shoulder was less than a half-hour later, so from my car I called and said I couldn't make it.

The plow came and saw my predicament. The driver plowed around me, and the neighbor whose car I'd blocked easily removed the clumps of snow the plow had left in front of my tires. I drove back into my usual parking spot, called out a thank you to my neighbor, and went inside.

Before it got dark I went back outside and sprinkled Ice Melt from my front door to my car door. The condo fees are supposed to cover that, but it hadn't been done. Maybe the workers were going to come back to do it when the temperature dropped, but they usually do a poor job. Now I have peace of mind instead of wanting to give them a piece of my mind.

I ought to care how many inches of snow fell last night.
I find that I don't.

It's easier to just brush and scrape it off the darned parked car in the lot,
and then get the heck outta there
so the lot can be plowed. Which I managed to do.

It's the heavy sticky kind of snow
which the Weather Channel's Jim Cantore calls
"white mud."

What a lovely visual scene it is, here, if you are so fortunate
that you don't have to get out and
move about in the stuff.
You can't tell, by looking out the window,
that it's the heavy wet type of snow.

All the bare trees are adorned with white as though
they had been covered in cotton wool,
it's pretty enough for a picture.

The forecast was correct about the snow being light and fluffy. Still, dealing with it while recovering from shoulder surgery and having one arm in a sling is . . . interesting. My technique is to have my good arm do the work and the bad one act as a guide. In all things I consider the bad arm the passenger and the good arm the driver.
And more snow is supposed to be on the way, arriving on Saturday.

From: Donuel
Date: 18 Feb 19 - 12:00 PM

I was browsing NOAA and learned about some new weather satellites that are dedicated to AK,CA and HA when my touch screen opened a site (unseen link) that listed preliminary reports. Going deeper I saw an item called a possible Super Duper Jupiter moon this March due to an unusual alignment. I was immediately reminded of an obscure article from the ESA that an object seen only in infrared may be causing havoc in the orbital mechanics of some of the smaller moons around the gas giants. Ganymede and Titan do not seem to be involved. (stick a pin in this)


I know that small rogue black holes exist and would have an infrared signature like any black hole. Only confirmation of gravitational lensing of an object obviously outside our solar system in the vector of Jupiter as seen from Earth this March will confirm a super massive unseen object and if it is approaching us or not.

But for now this is not a forecast but merely speculation.
Wouldn't it be exciting if a small black hole starts flinging moons and planets around?   May we live in interesting times.
