    Thanks.
    Just doing the RICE. No time or money for a doctor. I’ll live.

    Supposed to snow here again today and then down to 0 degrees tonight, I hate it when it gets that cold. This pic was yesterday.

    4 inches of snow received and today is gorgeous. The snow won't last long. We will probably get blasted with a nor Easter after this weeks warm weather. That seems to be the pattern.

    Snow has a purpose. It is the universe's answer to "how can I find more time to play my gee-tar?"

    Guess what I'm doing today as the sun the followed clears my walks for me?

    :D

    And three days later ... after setting record high temps yesterday ( 63 degrees) Mom Nature was supposed to set another record today with a temp of 66 or so. I don't know what happened because I was inside all day computering. It's about 3:30 p.m. and it's in the 40s ... not the 60s ... and I just got a weather alert to expect a snow storm with another 3 to 6 inches with some ice.

    I was fixing to go out to the car wash and clean the inside and outside of my car but I know tomorrow by this time it will be filthy again, both inside and out, so I will wait. I do have to dash to the stores to buy food, drinks and guitars so that's all I know about that.

    Friggin stupid weather.

    We had a nice snowy winter up to last week-end. Ski resort was going great. One meter deep snow everywhere you looked. American spring break is on this week, local one for the next 2 weeks.

    The last 48 hours, it rained with South winds blowing at 10°C, like a hair dryer. We lost more than 75% of snow cover.

    Above 0°C for the coming week. Kids will play in the slush. I hate climate change !

  11. Awesome ... just so ya know ... There's a big polar vortex out west right now, and these things move west to east, unless it shrinks and heads back north.
    Cheers, Barrie.

    Over 80F here today. We had stucco work done on our house yesterday and it was so warm today, I had to go spray water on the repairs so they don't dry out too quickly and pull away from the joints. Same thing tomorrow too. Seems like winter mostly passed us by this year.

    It’s been our turn this week. ‘The Beast from the East’ has hit most of Europe with Siberian winds and heavy snow. I don’t think there’s anywhere in the UK that hasn’t been hit. Before this week, the last time there was a red weather warning in the UK was in 1995. On Thursday, there were two reds for Scotland and for South West England. Here in North East England we’ve been under a (still serious) Amber warning for most of the week. In Newcastle where I am, the city hasn’t shut down, shops have still been open and I’ve been going to work, but lots of workplaces (including mine) have been closing earlier than normal, and travel between various areas of the UK has been severely disrupted. But the snowfall is dying down now, although it’s still fairly deep. It’s still very cold, but it’s due to get warmer next week, with a mix of sun and rain, so hopefully it’ll thaw away, and not turn to ice.

    Weather patterns are getting weirder and weirder and it's not going to stabilize. It plays havoc with the Jet Stream. So, we have an abnormally warm period here, as you get what we should for this time of year.

    Not fun, when the area is not equipped to deal with it.

    50s? Damn. We live by a huge creek, 30-40 feet wide. The 9” of snow we have will melt and the creek will get 150 feet wide right up to the hill the house sits on.

    We got another inch or so last night. But a LOT more -- predicted to be 10 inches or even more -- coming Wednesday.

    Do I mind? No. Especially when it brings along a friend! :)

    Out of curiosity, I looked up where the Monadnocks were. Strange, really strange area you live in Don !
