“I’m a planner,” said Kirkpatrick, 34, of New Rochelle, N. Y. “So once my husband and I made the decision, I wanted to get pregnant quickly. With the help of an ovulation test called Knowhen Saliva Fertility Monitor, Kirkpatrick was pregnant in two months. “Month 1, we tried, but it didn’t work,” she said. Doctors knew the definition: An egg (ovum) travels from an ovary, down a fallopian tube, in search of sperm. The timing of the egg’s journey, though, was a mystery. So incorrect fertility advice came from everyone from Plato (have sex once a week, he advised) to Aristotle (have sex anytime during the month but separate slowly afterward, and refrain from sneezing). Finally, in 1946, American physician George Papanicolaou (the Pap smear inventor) wrote that ovulation occurs two weeks after a woman’s period and can be identified by a fern-like pattern in the vaginal mucus. The “Day 14” advice still rules, even though timing varies from one woman to the next. “You may have regular periods but not ovulate,” said Dr. Jane Frederick, medical director of Newport Beach, Calif. “Or you may have no periods, then ovulate. A woman who is trying to get pregnant is against the clock because her egg supply decreases monthly. “You have the highest number of eggs — about 6 million — in your fifth month in utero,” Frederick said.
The weekend's forecast — for a wintry mix north and rain in the south of the Lower Hudson Valley starting late Saturday — could bring the first snow in about a month. The lack of wintry precipitation — just an inch of snow was reported in the Lower Hudson Valley in December, when we'd typically expect about 5 inches — is good news for drivers and road crews but bad news for skiers, ski-slope operators and those... There he was Wednesday, on a day off from work as a New York City art dealer, plunking down $45 at Ardsley Hardware for a new shovel and a 50-pound bag of calcium chloride. "That" was last winter, when snow-melt supplies and shovels ran low. Ardsley Hardware owner Joe Zeolla was selling 25- and 50-pound bags of calcium chloride as soon as they arrived at his store, and before he could even get them inside. "There'd be guys on their way to work and they'd see the truck delivering it and they'd pull right over and buy bags of it right off the sidewalk," said Zeolla, who has owned the shop for 35 years in the heart of Ardsley on Saw Mill River Road at... "I don't keep a lot of calcium chloride on hand, but I have a supplier who can get me a shipment within hours, if the forecast is looking snowy," Zeolla said, adding with a laugh: "All we need is one forecast to scare people and they'll come in... By this time last winter, 8 inches of snow had fallen — 4 inches here, 1 and a half.
A year ago today it snowed in the Twin Cities, just a trace of flurries, a high of 40F after waking up to 26F. This year temperatures are 20F warmer. a few rain showers in the forecast later today. You can't look out your window and make an accurate 3-4 month forecast. As much as we all want to know, the severity of winter cold and snow will depend on how fast El Nino can warm up the Pacific Ocean, and blocking patterns over North America that have yet to show up. Weather rarely repeats itself from one year to... a few hours of rain by tonight. Friday will feel like early September with a shot at 70F. Expect 70-degree warmth again Sunday before jackets return by Tuesday. Next week's predicted weather map looks more like mid-September than late October, dominated by a zonal, west to east wind flow. If you've been living in a cave, not noticing how amazing the month of October has been in Minnesota, you're in luck - because more Indian Summer is brewing later this week into the weekend. I wouldn't be surprised to see highs near 70F Friday, maybe low 70s Sunday. The best chance of a little rain comes tonight, a fleeting shower Sunday before a more October-like airmass arrives early next week. As a nor'easter wraps up over New England, moisture-laded winds blowing off the Atlantic dropping some 2-4" rains capable of flash flooding. Heavy rain pushes into the Pacific Northwest,.
