Clear as a Bell

Cold as…you get the idea. These cold, clear nights can be extreme. We have experienced the coldest temperatures of the season this week. Both of the previous day’s low temps came in at a balmy -12oF. This is due to a massive amount of polar air that shifted south into the Continental United States this week. For more on these types of weather patterns, check out the NWS site with info all about the polar vortex. As cold as it was here on the mountain, it was even more so in the valley bottoms as the cold air settled in low lying areas. Our cars have all had a tough week. The good news is that things look to rebound this weekend with yet another stellar weekend on tap.
