Upcoming weather isn’t all wind, thunder and rainbows

Labs Jackson and Gus love the snow. “I find the snow is the perfect time to take photos of them. It brings out their beautiful golden coat,” Jenna Lindemann of Shelburne said. Photo taken in Shelburne by Jenna Lindemann.

After Sunday’s sensational display of unseasonably high temperatures, destructive winds, thunder, lightning and rainbows, the week that followed was rather benign.

The downed trees and power outages from that storm system were quickly removed and repaired. Crews were at the ready before the winds even struck. James Mack at the Shelburne Police Department said there were no storm related emergencies in town, but the water was off at Maplewood Drive, Green Hill Drive, Steeplebush, The Terraces, Ti Lane and Covington Lane for a few hours due to a water line break.

Shelburne Public Works said the break has been fully repaired and was not related to the erratic weather since the lines are underground. Water lines age and develop weak spots on occasion. Not a big deal, they said.

Thankfully winds will only be about 8 mph, at the most, throughout this upcoming weekend, the US National Weather Service Burlington reports. It will be mostly cloudy until Friday when we can expect a bit of sunshine and a high near 28.

Labradors Jackson and Gus of Shelburne have a favorite pastime of basking in the sunshine, even if there is snow. “I find the snow is the perfect time to take photos of them,” their owner Jenna Lindemann said. “It brings out their beautiful golden coat.”

Sunshine will likely give way to more cloud cover, snow showers and temperatures in the 20s this weekend which brings us back into typical January weather patterns. The coming storm system is expected to bring light snow accumulation.
