There has been a slight thaw today but overnight the temperature is forecast to fall to -5C.

Driving might be tricky on minor untreated roads tomorrow morning.

It pales into insignificance compared to what vast swathes of Canada and the US have been suffering, but it's still a wretched nuisance.

Thursday night I was driving some back country roads in Lancaster county. These roads were built after the farms were there so they follow fence lines and creeks. You'll be going along and the road will suddenly make a 90 degree right or left at the corner of a field, usually blind and often with an elevation change just for fun.

Anyway the truck is telling me the temperature is between 0 and +3 F as I go over hills, it was very disconcerting the roads in places of up to 100 feet long were wet. Wet as in liquid. According to Google, a 20% salt brine will freeze at +2 F. So it was probably more than 20%. The ocean is 3.5%. That can't be good for the flora and fauna.

I noticed some parts of the ADK have eliminated salt completely. Plow and sand...

Mildly related, I once dumped out the water-and-rock-salt slush from the ice cream maker into the grass in the back yard. The spot stayed dead for like 3 years.

Buy Lancaster County bacon, the meat is cured while the hogs are alive!

On the plus side, the roads taste great.

Did you know Flying Squirrels appear hot pink under ultraviolet light? No you didn't, scientists didn't even know it.
