    Yesterday I carved outdoors in my shirt sleeves 5os and still.

      I'm thinking about mowing the grass. But I'll probably just clean the pool and take a walk on the beach. Retirement can be so tough. 64°F here.

        Big drifting in 5" new snow from the north last night, 0F at sunrise, coldest morning of this winter.
        HWY 16 east closed again for avalanche control. We have no detours at all here.
        You just sit and wait, Maybe 6:30 PM, depends on what they bring down.
        Good for our coffee shop and cafe businesses here!

          Spring-like day here in Louisiana, high of 77 degrees and bright, blue, sunny skies

          Will soon be time to start mowing the lawn again, usually begins in March and runs through October. Summers are a beast, but fall and spring are delightful.

            They are talking about an early spring. I'll wait to see. I think polar express is going to visit a time or two yet. Martin

              We broke a record today with a high of 82 degrees, last record was 81 degrees set in 1957. I was outside planting in my flower garden and had to turn the air conditioning on when I came in. Weeds are doing very well, thank you, and I expect the grass will shortly catch up and it'll be mowing time.

                -30C here this morning, -37C in the city west of my place. Sunny blue skies, no wind, big deal.

                  Got you beat, Arthur! Our high was 82F today - have had the A/C on for the past 2 days.

                    And I'm still chipping the ice off my back deck from our freezing rain storm yesterday. And today they figure we'll get some more. There is no joy in Mudville today.

                      These are the winter storms that cause more damage than a hurricane at times...... the last one like this had wind gust coming down the mountain at 90 mph.....they are saying its coming wind and major waves.... the question is will we break a record??...... will see. This is a cold front not cold by mainland standards .... This one brings the huge waves perhaps bigger than anything I have ever seen????.... we will see. So pull down anything that blows and wait. .....The waves will be hitting the north shoreline........It sounds like thunder hitting the shoreline. They can not surf these ...as the wind will make them choppy. as to the size coconut tree typical size 100 feet. giant-wave-hawaii.jpg

                        We had 'Thundersnow' 2 nights ago. It is like a real, old fashioned summer thunder storm, with lightning, but with snow instead of rain! I have only seen this one other time, at it was over 40 years ago during a blizzard!

                        Highs for the last two days in the teens with wind...pretty darn cold here in the heartland!

                          We had tiny snowballs frozen hard and hitting the metal roof of my office like hail. They were about 1/16" or so and didn't last since we were at 34. Now the sun is down and maybe snow tonight. We have roses blooming in the yard. Martin I like a good freeze now and then - kills bugs. No freeze and no peace that spring and summer with bumper crop of bugs. Map looks blue and pink for snow and ice with the ground at 35. I think here is a degree lower. Thus far only rain to be under the ice if we get it.

                            Waiting for this storm to hit....came from Alaska., this is one of those rare storms that they have no idea what it is going to do. They even got shelters up for coastal people....darn thing turns into a cyclone.....which is a baby hurricane.
                            .. So will see what damage it will cause. ;On the mountain tops 115 mph winds....waves could be 120 feet high and they say they could take out a few only roads along the coastline. Will see all I know is I am freezing, think I will go cook some oven hot grilled vegetables to warm up the house...no one that I know of has heat in the house. so sitting on the heating pad for warmth. Even the cats are on heating pads....yes they are spoiled.

                              -28C/-20F in fake sunshine (I don't believe it) but no wind at sunrise. No where near melting for at least 2 weeks.
                              South coast YVR got hammered again with wind, 60,000 - 80,000 without power and they almost freezing and windy.
                              The city never pruned any boulevard trees in 50+ years. So big now that any serious wind load and over they go in wet soil.

                                Well, my area never got the wind to guess the mountain range protected us this time.....although the big island summit got 130 mph winds and gust up to 191 mph....said it was worst up there then a cat 5 hurricane. Waikiki got bunch old trees pulled up by the roots they were really large trees and they fell on a few tourists. The island of Kauai got the worst of it ....they always seem to get major damage from the storms. The ocean never hit record heights just blew into the roads big time. Whole bunch of tourist got sand blasted and coated with salt trying to see the waves....was about the whole of the weirdest storm we have ever had.
