Mowed grass too yesterday. I was a sweating machine. I'm putting my golf clubs in the closet for now. Just don't enjoy the heat and humidity. But you are right, we have had a mild summer up to this point.

Well, that's what I get for trying to do something productive/useful. I get all the screens off the porch, clean it up nice and I'm ready to put the weather sealing stuff on. But the rain started yesterday and will continue for the next few days.

So I'll just have to find something else to do.

Yesterday's high was 77, today's high 37 with a chance of freezing rain the next few days. Tomorrow night's low will be in the teens. Brrrrsky

Might have to tip a bit of JD in mah coffee.

Another good thing about being retired.

Is this going to be one of those cold winters again? Seems to be pretty early for these massive arctic air masses. You know when they make it down all the way to the southern tip of Texas, drop the air temp over 20 degrees in a couple of hours and by 40 degrees the next day, and keep us in highs in the 40s for three days in a row - that is one heck of a Canadian Freight Train! Actually - I think that one last week was a double-header.

Looks like this next one will be a repeat.

We actually had a little frost on the ground last week ! It's been almost 3 years since I've seen that here.

Kind of worried Jan might get even colder? Anyone seen any articles on the forecast for winter 2013 they can link me? Thanks!

Yeah, and it includes a market forecast for good measure...

Freezing rain

The freezing rain has started. They sent the kids home from school early this afternoon. We'll still have our Bible study at church tonight--half the guys that come drive four wheel drive pick-ups. We'll need more than a couple inches of snow to stop them.

It's 80F outside right now, and my AC is running full blast. Yesterday it was in the 80's, too. I am sitting here barefoot in my shorts and summer blouse, for now.

Like some other Southerners have already mentioned, we are all expecting a front and very big temperature drop shortly. It is supposed to arrive here some time tonight.

I love the weather here (except for the summer hurricanes). I must admit that I actually like changes in weather, and we are getting them without going below freezing so far this winter. That's just perfect.

Hope they packed a lunch as well. Was 77 yesterday afternoon; 32 now, and headed lower, with frozen precip on the way. Hunkered down at home!

Looks like winter weather in TX is supposed to slightly warmer than normal.
Quote:
Sea surface temperatures across the central Pacific have not been consistently warm or cool since Spring 2012, and we expect this to continue at least through next spring. This means that neither El Niņo nor La Niņa is likely to influence the climate during the upcoming winter.
Here is a pretty good Winter Weather Outlook overview from NOAA: Drought likely to persist or develop in the Southwest, Southeastern U.S. this winter

So maybe these arctic blasts won't occur all winter?

We're expecting a cold storm this weekend - awful weather...let it come! And, in great abundance. As a matter of fact, throw in a pineapple express as the winter progresses. I believe that the snow pack in the Sierras is only 20% of normal, so we'll take what we can get!

Played golf today and temp was over 80 degrees F.
Shouda worn shorts. Still warm now @ 5 PM but looking for highs in the 40's on Sat and Sun. Will be going to western NC next week and will get relief from all this hotness.

Well snow won't stop a 4x4 pickup. Neither will ice, fact is they go very well on ice. Where they end up stopping, who knows. Be very careful.
