Greetings and Salutations, 2013!

Hello.  I’m ‘back on the blog’ after a two week break.   

Good news for those who like to see photos of my journey: I’m currently on a weeklong (-ish) road trip! ;-)  See the next several blog posts.  

Before I started out, I checked the weather on New Year’s Eve:  Clear Skies, and most of the US covered in snow, with temperatures along my (roughly) planned journey below zero Fahrenheit (below -20 Celcius even).  Here’s some weather info from this past week:

This and much other weather and climate-related data can now all be found through the links on my recently-created METEO page (in the top bar).

Temperatures have come back up a little bit the past 2 days, with these (below) showing lows for today (Jan 5, 2013).  Temps in Fahrenheit (convert HERE to Celcius if needed.  32 F = 0 C):
