March 29, Heavy snow and wind!

Hi Everyone!

I work with several long range forecasters and everyone has a warning
for extreme weather around March 28.  Last January my weathercaster,
Nancy McEwen, told me that most of our winter would be in March and to watch out for a very strong winter storm around March 28.  The other day I asked her
for more details and this is what she sent me;

Mar 27 2013 - PERIGEE MOON- 50/36 - FOG/RAIN/TSTORM 

Mar 28 2013 - 54/36 FOG/RAIN/TSTORM.Some thunderstorms may be severe because of the Perigee Moon

Mar 30 2013 - 37/32 LINGERING SNOW

Mar 31 2013 - 45/28 DRY 

Perigee Moon occurs when a full or new moon happens at perigee which is when the moon is closest to the earth.

The moons orbit is elliptical so once a month it is close (perigee) and once a month it is far (apogee).  

50% of our weather is determined by the moon which has a complex relationship (dance?) with the earth.  The moon's influence is on our air and water which means it will determine our wind, rain and tides.

Our weather is cyclical and so are the patterns of the moon and the two are related and this is one way we can know our weather in advance.

Sorry to bring bad news so I guess we just prepare.  Last Autumn was very dry so  it's nice to get moisture but I just wish it would warm up!

Happy gardening everybody!
