Yes, it’s still winter. That was apparent today as most of us were stuck under clouds, flakes and in temps in the teens. It’s still cold tonight – and there’s still a concern for slick travel across the South Shore with freezing drizzle/mist. A Winter Weather Advisory is posted for Plymouth County through 10pm. Hey, did you notice the title of this blog? “Meteorological Winter Halftime” referring to the fact that today is the half-way mark of meteorological winter! “We’re halfway through, you say?
The cold is back in place, though not as cold as the bitterly cold stretch (almost two weeks!) that we just made it through. With that said, temps were still around 10-15 degrees below seasonal averages today. It’s another cold night ahead of us too. With mainly clear skies inland, some of those coldest spots N&W of 495 may make it below zero. Generally speaking, overnight lows will be 3-20°.
I could not help but think of the movie Encino Man (1992) today. Just that scene where Brendan Frasier is a frozen caveman and Pauly Shore & Sean Astin surround him with heaters to thaw him out… Tell me you didn’t identify with Brendan Frasier’s character today?! Finally, we’re getting that thaw that we so desperately need after 13 days of temps below freezing – and a stretch of 7 consecutive days of 20° or below.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
