Well, the snow prediction was a bust.

Got about 1". I am sure that getting a full can of gas, rechecking the snowblower, stacking in extra wood warded off the need to blow and shovel global warming.

I like it.

We didn't get much either. But The Plow Boys still came over and did a concert last night. S'ok: I am glad they are there when I need them!

Same here, about 2". Still, like everyone else I am ready for some warmer temperatures.

Yesterday we had temperatures in the low 80's. This morning we have 29 F and snow flurries. I took Dog put this morning. She looked around, whined and wanted back in the house. Wimpy Herman Shepard.

Yesterday's high was 83, and this afternoon's high is predicted to be in the upper 40's. Brrr!

The front went barreling through this morning, with lots of rain and wind. I awakened just as that was ending, a half hour ago, and at that point it was 57F outside. Now it is 45F. That is pretty cold compared with 83F.

I think I'd die or freeze to death if I lived in your area! I'm used to dealing with oppressive heat and humidity, but not cold and snow and ice.

I wish you mid-west and east coasters would get your weather house in order. It's starting mess things up out here on the west coast when my Amazon shipments get delayed due to weather back east.

It's all the Canadian's fault. They should keep their polar vortexes up north where they belong.

It was bitterly cold in central North Dakota this weekend with March coming in like a Lion! The ice in the river behind our home is almost too thick to drill through with a 3foot long ice auger! Can't wait till' spring when the geese and ducks migrate and the song birds return!

We hit 90 degrees yesterday afternoon. I waited to grill until after 7pm when the temps finally dropped below 80.

It was 38 degrees at noon. It's supposed to warm all the way up to 42 degrees by midnight!

I told somebody the other day you can take your polar vortex and shove it up your XXX.

With all the weather angst, I am wondering how many are ready to throw in the towel and move to a different geography

The idea has been kicked around here but I doubt we'll actually do anything other than planned. Proximity to family is still the main driver of where to locate.

I say no, sir!

I was a little premature. But now they're forecasting temps near or above 50 for the next 10 days. Guess which tom cat will be prowling the streets?

Looks like Winter is over here. They are predicting a warmish spell of weather.....it was supposed to be 47 or so today, I have 58 on my thermometer. Ground is still frozen and will be for another couple of days. Now I just have to wait for the golf courses to drain

Our geography is pretty good winter weather wise. We haven't had a freeze yet, even though we had some days with highs in the mid thirties. And spring started several weeks ago.

Oh, right, that's one reason we're here!
