Yankees Add Another Piece...Sox Mum

Hello. I'm ba-ack. I hope everyone is doing well out there in internet land. I'll let you know what kind of weather (white) we're expecting here in north central Connecticut after this interesting news concerning the Boston Red Sox hated rivals, the New York Yankees. Remember, they only have three bonafide starters lined up and ready to go. Rightfully so, Andy Pettitte is not included in that tally. Yesterday, they signed pitcher Freddy Garcia. He will compete for one of those two remaining rotation slots. If Freddy is in good shape, NY might have landed a great piece of their puzzle. This is from ESPN dot com...

"Garcia will receive a $1.5 million base salary if he makes the big league club. He can earn $3.6 million in possible incentives, topping out at 30 starts, according to a source. It also lets Garcia opt out by March 29. Garcia, 35, has a career 133-87 record with a 4.13 ERA in 12 big league seasons. He went 12-6 in 28 starts with the Chicago White Sox last season."

Now about that weather. In the next two days (Tuesday/Wednesday), north central Connecticut and much of the nation are going to be annihilated by a huge two-part storm. Part one has just started here early this morning. Today's action will dump 8 or 9 inches on roofs that are already shouldering 40 inches of the heavy white stuff. That's too much. I've had an on-again-off again leak in my kitchen right over the microwave and stove. But I'm OK in that regard compared to others whose roofs have crashed and crumpled. Tomorrow's part two of the storm, right on number one's heels, will eventually affect 33 out of the 48 connected states. THAT IS AMAZING. We will get more heavy snow maybe changing to that dreaded ice. I hope it stays all snow. That's easier to get rid of, on the driveways and the roads and the roofs, some already locked and loaded for disaster.

It's nice to be back and I'll return with a weather update in a few hours. You can click on this post's title for the live in-motion digital radar of the lower 48. Just use the bars at the bottom and right sides of your screen to see these storms. Be careful out there and as always, BE WELL.
