It has been snowing here for the last three hours but it is forty degrees out! NO rain mixed in, just nice snowflakes. This is not a high altitude deal, I am standing at 23 feet above sea level right here.

Strange day!

It is cold up above. My son tows up hang gliders and he says it can drop five degrees in Temp for every 1000 feet you go up. Some times when the weather is mild he wears a jacket when towing up hang gliders. I think he said 1000 feet but I know he said it gets colder as you go up.

Up here in Northern NH we are up to 4 inches so far. I had practice for my track team and it was 28 degrees and snowing. By the time we got done, the ground was covered. Nasty practice but I kept the kids moving. I live 35 miles North of the school and the road was snow covered. It's April up here on the border. A lot of snowmobilers coming into town for the weekend.

They are calling for snow here tonight. Our average temp for her this time of year is 70. Said our wind chill will be 12 in the morning. Been a strange year here, we haven't had measurable rain in over 180 days.

Ouch, Okiej! Hope that gets wetter soon, my friend.

Did you look that up just now, PutZ? Betcha didn't know that before! So tell me, what is the dry adiabatic lapse rate?

I am sure you also knew that I was, for more than a decade, certified by the FAA to teach private pilot ground school, and did as a fixed base operator, and also have 1800+ hours in gliders, and more in other craft, so the lapse rate is not an unfamiliar concept to me or the other aviators here.

Thanks for showing up!

Had to blow the driveway out this morning in northern NY, 10” of new snow, and 20 degrees F. Man I love this global warming.
