March Roars In, Colorfully, on the River

This morning looked hopeful: about 90 percent of the snow was gone, pavement and sidewalks came back, no salt kicked up under the car as I drove, and all was looking good. Until the afternoon.

Checking out the EarthCam® construction camera, I noticed Upper Grandview reported this AWESOME sunrise today at 6:30 a.m.:

630 am

You can see the ice in this noon photo from Tarrytown:

We move the clocks one hour ahead next week, and spring begins. It’s my wishful thinking. Plans for tomorrow went south.

Bridge project river work is suspended while the bridge builder continues off site work; its strict schedule includes a two-month shutdown during winter months.

Note that access to the Thruway southbound will be via Route 59 in Nyack from Friday, Mar. 6, at 9 p.m., to Saturday, Mar. 7, at 5 a.m., while the Exit 10 on-ramp is temporarily closed.

Drive safe, everyone. Why do some people need to drive fast in snow? I was food shopping this afternoon, and at least three cars flew past me on the way home. The roads are not like in television commercials, where vehicles never get dirty, and there’s no salt kicked up when they speed through the snow. It’s dangerous weather.

I’d like to know what you think.
