A beautiful day here, 9 degrees C (48.2 F), sunny and quite windy. Very pleasant walk along the lakeshore. It's quite amazing to see how rapidly the sun goes through its arc. Sunset happens early when there's a mountain in the way!

Beautiful sunny day...temps in the 70's. Would have worn my shorts, but the glare from my white legs would have been blinding.

Winter has been amazing here; no snow and several days this week with temps in the 50s. Normally now 15 to 20 below would be expected.

Beautiful here too today. Played golf, but didn't wear shorts. Some did though.

We had a record high today of 47 degrees. We've only had a couple inches of snow so far and it's almost all melted. This is the best dec/jan I can remember in 30+ years of living in Wisconsin. No more than flurries in the next 10-day forecast

We were in the 50's and sunny around Chicago. Came out of the restaurant last night, it was more like a Sept evening than January. No meaningful snow yet. Can't recall anything so mild. But we need to get some 0F~10F sometime, or I'm afraid the bugs are going to take over next summer.

Except for a few low teen mornings, it has been fairly mild in SW PA. So far. Love this global warming thing. Can we get some more?

OTOH last winter was miserable.

We, too, have been having "beautiful" weather. Sunny and 60's. But, the powers that be just took a sample of the Sierra snowpack - to tell how well we are going to do water-wise next summer. The snowpack is at 24% of normal. I am praying for a series of really strong storms flowing through our area. A Pineapple express would be nice. I am remembering the awful summer that Texas had in 2011.

Winter is when we "pay" for the abundant water that flows from the mountains in the spring. But, I have to say, I am enjoying this weather!

For January, I'll take this weather anytime! For the last two days afternoon temperatures above 60 F, the next several days are forecast to be 50+.

But we're gonna "pay". Last Feb. we were knee-deep or more in snow.

Looks like our strange weather might continue (I hope!)

It is a snowy day today, up in my place in the high country in the SouthWest.

Is this all part of the Mayan 2012 prophecy? Something is very wrong...

It was 77F at lunchtime here in New Orleans, and we are both wearing shorts and short sleeved shirts.

Very nice (despite some clouds), and no change is predicted for the coming week. This is in contrast with last week, during which we had freeze warnings for a couple of nights.

It's crazy snowy weather in Seattle this week. There's about three or four inches of packed snow/ice on the sidewalk in front of my house. The weather forecasters were saying all week by tonight it would be warming up and raining instead of snowing, but there's no sign of that yet. I wanted to drive down to Aberdeen after church on Sunday to check out another piece of property that's for sale, but it's looking very doubtful. My car is still snowed in down at my Mom's house and I'm not even sure I'll be able to get it back and get to church, let alone Aberdeen.

I have been thinking of our members in Seattle and the northwest, who are getting pounded by this storm. I saw footage on the news and it looks crazy. They also said that people in Seattle are urged to stay home if they can. Stay warm and safe, kyounge1956!!

Yeah, it's been a pretty heavy snow up here (Seattle area)...but I'm only 2.5 years removed from the Midwest, it makes me kind of happy and nostalgic

Not that I can travel anywhere, but I'm happy to WFH and watch it snow outside.
