Marlin had posted to facebook last night: "so 65 degrees and sunny today (!) - wild thunder, lightening and rain tonight, 6-8 inches of snow Sunday! wild weather."
And a davis_square post from earlier yesterday:
Snowbreak!On Thursday (and also on Friday), people kept commenting that the weather was so gorgeous, and I kept feeling really thrown because it was in the 50s F and I feel like in other contexts people would look at me askance. (I was also feeling sort of indifferent to the weather, myself.)
Since I'm a weirdo and tracking these things, I thought I'd share that as of today, we are officially within the longest snowbreak of the season! Until now, the longest gap between snow emergencies was the 15-day period between the end of first and the beginning of the second. The other gaps were considerably smaller, at 7d2h, 6d21h, and 4d4h, respectively.
It has now been a full 16 days since our last snow emergency was lifted! (Someday we may even reclaim parking on the even side of the street.)
In other news, today Ari and I were discussing plans for my impending Missouri trip, and I was looking for return flights. I found a Southwest flight but wasn't thrilled about how late it got me in. Then I found a USAir flight that would get me in an hour earlier, for the same price. I said it would actually cost me about twenty dollars more, since I would have to pay to check a bag, but that I was willing to pay that to get in an hour earlier. Ari said, "That is about what your time is worth." I told her all the economists I work with would be so proud :)
