I saw a robin this morning; he has not read the 10 day forecast.

Cold here again next week. Had a nice weekend of sun and just above freezing after torrential rains and thunderstorms on Thursday night/Friday morning. Just brought the last face cord of wood for the year in today. That will make it 5 for the winter. Has been pretty cold.

California will finally be getting some rain later this week. Hooray!
We might even get winds up to 50 MPH. Ordinarily I might complain
about the rain, but I think I've learned my lesson now....

Still freezing cold here, with piles of snow, terrible icy streets and sidewalks, and continued cold this week. But yesterday I heard spring bird sounds! And the days are getting significantly longer! Hope springs eternal!

I keep telling myself "This too shall pass, this too shall pass...."

Why does February last six months and summer only lasts six weeks?

It is snowing again, still?

Monday I said to a fellow diner, spring is here. She said how you know.

I replied, this morning I saw a woman coming out of the Y in a miniskirt and stilettos. She obviously had dancer's legs.

Well I was fooled, about spring being here. She in fact turned out to be a dancer.

I have 3 weather forecast sites bookmarked. One local station, weather.com, and that .io site. What gets me is that NONE of them are even all that close to each other. Usually a good 5 degree difference between the 3. I'm also finding that the weather.com site has the temps about as accurate as any of them....which considering the local station "should" have some local knowledge advantage....why can't they get it right? Next 4 days....

I believe that despite all the science used in forecasting weather, it's as much of an art as it is a science.

Interesting the story that's often told around here is that upcoming metorogists desire to work at the NWS near KC to build their resumes. Aparantly it's well known that the forcasts in this area are 'challenging'. I can attest to the challenging part, not sure about the rest.

Temperatures were in the 70's today, so shorts and sandals were in order. Fog rolled in from the Gulf of Mexico and persisted for much of the day.

Sounds good, right? Unfortunately I suspect we haven't seen the last of wintry weather and soon we may be back in the freezer with the Northerners. Hope I'm wrong.

Mardi Gras is one week from today, so we have lots of parades going on.

I know this is grabbing at straws to be happy about cold weather but there is a positive besides the effects on mosquitoes. Stinkbugs are dying off too:

Where I live only a small fraction of the forecasted snow will put us past our all time record. I'm not sure what outcome I am hoping to get.

good news: it's pouring down rain here in the bay area, courtesy of the Pineapple Express, which has finally made an appearance in California.

bad news: it's coming your way, folks in the Rockies, midwest and east coast. And in the form of snow--sorry!!

I already called The Plow Boys. I told them I'd play whatever they want: steel, bass, piano, guitar.

I just want to see a pitcher warming up.
