Tangle Refresher 44

Tangle Refresher!

Spring Break 2013 and incredible amounts of pollen have arrived simultaneously in North Florida.

The roads are jammed with cars and RVs sporting out of state license plates and every vehicle is covered in a thin yellow-green layer of sticky stuff. Yes folks, allergy season has arrived in all its glory so tangling is a challenge with itchy eyeballs playing havoc with my vision. And though it’s nearly impossible to get around town with the usual efficiency, we love seeing our visitors return and it keeps the economy going for another year. To everyone taking a Spring Break: have a safe and wonderful vacation – and bring your allergy meds. 😉

Meanwhile, in the Northeast it looks like a good weekend for tangling and my pollen issues look pretty tame. Robert sent me this awesome photo from NASA taken yesterday. You can spot Florida down there just free of the clouds and you can barely make out Lake Superior at the top of the photo.

According to NASA, “A massive winter storm is coming together as two low pressure systems are merging over the U.S. East Coast. A satellite image from NOAA’s GOES-13 satellite on Feb. 8 shows a western frontal system approaching the coastal low pressure area. The satellite image, captured at 9:01 a.m. EST, shows clouds associated with the western frontal system stretching from Canada through the Ohio and Tennessee valleys, into the Gulf of Mexico. The comma-shaped low pressure system located over the Atlantic, east of Virginia, is forecast to merge with the front and create a powerful nor’easter. The National Weather Service expects the merged storm to move northeast and drop between two to three feet of snow in parts of New England.

Like I said, a good weekend for tangling! Be safe and warm everyone.
