The kestrel-cam in Boise, Idaho is active again. There are five eggs in the box, despite a long hiatus after the first two, possibly caused by an unseasonable snowstorm at that time.

Right now, mama-bird is sitting on the eggs determinedly, as wind blows snow hard enough that there are drifts inside the box with her. Brrrrr!

Thirty-five years ago, I was ten years old, which was pretty damn optimal. Also, my parents were snowed in at their workplace for several days, leaving me on my own. Best Snowforts EVER!

These days, I'm much more prone to huddle indoors, but I did take a few pictures to document.

Happy: looking at the 10-day weather forecast and seeing that it's going from 0 back up to 60 in a few days.
Sad: Realizing that you're not looking at the temperature column, you're looking at precipitation chance.

I'm a big fan of cutting-edge 21st technology. But I like lots of older technologies as well. Days like today, many of them come to mind. I'm a big fan of "houses". "Interior Heating", also a big win. "Glass Windows", so I can see the weather outside, while remaining inside myself, are icing on the cake :-)

What was it about last night's rainfall in the Boston area that made footing so unusually treacherous? I nearly fell on a number of occasions. Was there some unusual chemical compound coming down with the rain, that was extra-slippy? Or was it because of the way the temperature was hovering right around the freezing mark? I didn't observe any actual *ice*, mind you -- just patches of wet sidewalk that were unexpectedly slippery. Or is the answer more obscure than either of those?
