The lunar eclipse here along the New Jersey shore last night was stunning – but so was the windy and frigid weather following a dramatic arctic cold front, …making my camera and my fingers frozen.
After I admitted defeat with the cameras, I went back outside with just my heavy gloves and binoculars, where the fully eclipsed moon, high above, was awesome, beautifully colorful and surrounded by the winter stars.
As the earth’s shadow is cast upon the lunar surface, its temperature drops hundreds of degrees. Here at our house, it seemed the temperature dropped just as much, from 50 degrees (F) at about noon yesterday to 7 (F) degrees this morning, with a wind chill of at least -11 degrees as shown below at 7:21 AM.

In the past week, a powerful storm caused high winds with heavy rain. A few days later, a second cyclonic-like storm hit us again with high winds, colder temperatures and heavy snow. Thousands of trees and utility lines were brought down, paralyzing the region. Here are some “front door” views from our home in northern New Jersey.
As usual, thanks for visiting. Click on or finger-stretch images to zoom in, and comments are always encouraged. M 🙂
