Mighty winter storm ‘Petunia’ heads to Northeast

 

8 to 10 cumulative inches of snow are expected tonight and tomorrow morning in the NY area.  The storm, named Petunia, will be accompanied by frigid temperatures as low as  15°F Thursday evening, followed by an icy cold 9 °F Friday night.  The good news is that temperatures will rise over the weekend to 46 °F Sunday.  Rain on Sunday should melt away any accumulation, rendering v, Petunia, a memory quickly.

Lagrangeville

I’ve had pretty good luck seeing snow when I travel around Christmas time.
Lagrangeville is a small town in upstate New York. it was founded by
French settler, and cousin of Henry Hudson, Antoine LaGrange. or something
to that effect. I’m sure if you look it up on Wikipedia there’s a cool
story about how Lagrangeville was founded. Just remember though it’s
Wikipedia, it could be made up.

At 18° F, -8 Celcius, Lagrangeville would be a great vacation spot for a
global warming doubter. Later today I’ll be at a Christmas party with
those who could make it here in the storm. At the party, I’m going to start
a rumor that global warming deniers have gone to Lagrangeville courts to
have thermometers removed from the government buildings, because their
beliefs are violated. If anyone asks you about that, back me up. or
better yet, someone start an article on Wikipedia.
