Warmer this morning at 19*. But sunny and is supposed to be in the 50's today.
Next 7 days.....
We have a wind chill of 30 degrees. that wind cuts right through you. Gonna be even colder tomorrow
Yikes..... Never again for me..... Originally an Ohio boy......never again.....
storm moving in so it was very windy today and even worse this evening. gusts up to 43 mph!
winter storm warnings out for our area but we are only supposed to get maybe an inch of snow.
Windows open today, loving that. next week it will be cold, in the 20s at night. No snow!
I just went out and threw what was left of head of lettuce from the fridge at the edge of the garden. I didn't even bother putting on pants... it's 62 degrees outside right now. 2 nights ago it was 27 degrees... Weird weather and it's nice when your nearest neighbor is a mile away.
Next week the temps are going to drop.
We are suppose to have highs in the low 30s and lows in the low 20s or upper teens with freezing rain and fog.
Today it's so foggy you can't see 100 feet.
Looks like a good time to putter around in my shop, after I have my wife's studded snow tires put on.
Rain......again. rain all day tomorrow then temps in the mid to upper 60's sunday.
saw a blip from a local weather page that we might get some snow on wednesday ( which of course I have doc's appointment)
Made it through the big storm. We ended up with about a 1/2" of snow.
The fog that has dominated our weather is gone today. It is supposed to be mild (for this time of year) for the next couple of days with cold weather following that. Winter is blooming! I love it.
cold and snow falling..a tiny bit of rain now n then too
warm fire by my stove later after hot spring soak!! OOOHhhhhhh!! love it!
supposed to get 1-3 inches today and same tonight
so far it is all melting away and not sticking but that might change tonight..dont care..I gotta stovie and the time to enjoy it..
We were supposed to get a trace to 1" in our area, didn't happen yet but it did snow down to about the 2,000' level on the mountains to the west of us, at least it's the start of replenishing our next years water supply and that's what is the most important thing.
I woke up this morning to about 6" of snow and 32*F. That's 0*C for those of you that can't leave well enough alone. I went out and ran the snow blower around the drive to give the sun a chance to get rid of that last bit of what I can't reach with the equipment.
After a wet snow and then a warm (33° F) day yesterday, it didn't get above freezing today. any snow that didnt melt is now ice. Luckily, the ground that got cleared like roads, sidewalks, etc. got dried off enough that it didn't refreeze. Sounds like it's staying below freezing for a while here too. Winter has finally arrived...
Drove to the big town today and about 2 miles from there we ran into a big snow and ice system.
It caught a bunch of people off guard and there were 9 vehicles in the ditches.
Happened about 5 minutes before we arrived so everyone had slowed down.
Lasted for about a mile then nothing.
cold...clear skys..beautiful drive home last night with Sirus shining bright in the dog constellation in my view..Orion next to it..
0 that's zero degrees when I left work ..gah...I looked like the kid on that Christmas movie..A Christmas story with 5 layers on. lol
In the shade this am on my porch it said 2 but in the sun its 28..
as pretty as the night sky was last night..Ill be ok for some clouds to heat it up a few degrees. Monday were supposed to get more snow, until then it is forcast to be below freezing day temps and below 10 degrees at night here. Where I work..colder..blah!!
38 degrees at 4:00 PM, cloudy, fog and smoke. Just glad to stay inside with a nice warm woodstove, need to close up the chicken coop and replenish the firewood. I do miss the warmth of summer, sad to say we really didn't have much of a summer due to all the smoke from California fires coming up here, however I do feel sorry for all that lost homes and businesses because of those fires.
Cold. It's been in the 20's in the morning. I don't like deicing duck kiddie pools in the morning.
Cold here too, supposed to be 27 here tonight. Warm and rainy at the end of the week.
Was 18 degrees and clear this morning.
@Dutchs - isn't that a bit chilly for FLA or is that the norm this time of year?
Looking forward to seeing that bright orb in the sky again sometime. Not much for solar gain these days. Batteries need an occasional boost here and at the cottage. Fortunately the Honda EU2000i can do it even on ecothrottle...fairly quiet. Light snowfall...just some flakes. Maybe 4" total on the ground...although with all the turkey and deer tracks they beat it down to clear earth. Hope all is well on your homesteads.
Next 3 days could get interesting.
But now its just a little cold,
A lil cold.wet.and it's gonna get a whole wetter...
It's 41ºF, winds up to 25 MPH, and raining. I love winter rain. You don't have to shovel rain.
ok.it got wetter.and stil getting wetter,if it can.it's 47F not much wind.got my primary shopping done today...so I'm now ready to wait it out..
Its wet today. I love the rain but now is a bad time. I've got a goat with pneumonia and this cold and wet isn't helping.
Temps been up and down this week. 22 one morning, 42 this morning. Highs 30 and 40's. Expecting rain and possible snow showers by Sunday. Other side of the mountain up to 2' of snow. All depends on a approaching cold front from the north and a wet low coming out of the gulf. It could come up this side of the mountain instead and dump on us. Doubtful, but I for one wish it would. My luck just a cold rain.
Pouring down rain....cold....beginning to snow in Abilene
@GrannyG Wow, I didn't know you were over there.
Sometimes I miss the snow.
