What Happened Thursday Night?
Nothing! Why? I'm guessing despite the incredibly mild winter, we are just a little too early. But then again, I'm not a salamander or frog, so what the heck do I know? To a human trying to predict nature, conditions looked pretty perfect throughout the day. It was in the 40's and rainy and on the heels of a few pretty mild days. In fact both Monday and Tuesday nearly touched 60 degrees. The forecast for Thursday night was for the rain to continue, get heavier and the temperatures to rise as well getting close to 50. But alas, a dreaded dry slot - an area of dry air that seeps into a storm system - took hold for a few hours and with it, the temperature never really rose, we might have even lost a degree for a few hours until the winds shifted to the southwest and the rain began again sometime around eleven. We always err on the side of caution when we close the road, so we don't miss protecting the amphibians as they cross to the vernal pools. Stay tuned...lots of amphibian joy is sure to be ahead. We are ready when they are! A huge thanks to the East Brunswick Police Department for getting everything setup.
