We're getting hit by a winter storm significant enough to get a name (Ask) today.

Weather statistics of impending DOOM

This morning, when I looked out the window, there was a gap in the lower cloud layer near the highest mountain. The gap remained there for at least two more hours while the clouds rolled around it.

I'm a little worried that I might not get home tonight, as they'll close the bridge if it gets too windy, but I do intend to try to leave relatively early, as the wind is expeected to peak around 6 pm.

A definite sign that Something Is Up: The wind gauge on this side of the bridge has been showing 0 m/s the past few weeks. This morning, they had a crew out to repair it (the other gauge showed 13 m/s at the time. If it gets much higher, signals on the gauges start blinking to alert people, and I suspect that they'll also be used to alert people should the bridge have to be closed. In other words, they are very nice things to have operational today :)
