The snow has disappeared,
as have the balmy temperatures!
Waking this morning and stepping outside, may bring a shock to your body. The Walpack Weather Station has recorded the sudden drop in temps overnight:

No longer the 55 degrees my thermometer had read at 7am yesterday, but 20!
Tonight we'll drop back to single digit temps and wind chills below ZERO!
For anyone thinking this weather is out of the ordinary, the state has information posted back to 2104 - and you can read the full 2015 recap. There it relates that: "The  statewide average temperature of 27.7° was 3.5° below normal, making it the 32nd coldest January since records commenced in 1895."
And sadly, NE of us yesterday - an ice jam occured, closing off part of Route 209 in Westbrookville, NY.
Today's TH-Record has a video link to a news story they posted today of people needing to be rescued from their home. By the hamlet's Post Office, an 8 foot tall wall of ice had backed up by the bridge.
5 degree temps are expected tonight, with wind chills of negative 6.
Bundle up and take precaution of water pipes freezing, etc. - yet again!
It's a bit colder "up on the mountain" at High Point - which also has its own weather station off Route 23 - past the township border.
