Strange Meteorology...



The road to Lancaster on November 19, 2016 was bright with azure skies. As I descended in altitude from the hills above Oley to the lower lying farmland in Amish Country, the temperature rose. The thermometer joyfully proclaimed 72 degrees. 


There were trees along the way that had yet to give up their leaves of red, yellow and gold. 


But during the afternoon the sky turned an unfriendly shade of gray. 



And the wind kicked up and the oak leaves in front of the Museum flew. The temperature plummeted. 


By 9pm the white stuff started to fall! A day of shorts and snow shovels.
