We had a gorgeous day here in London, UK on Good Friday, clear blue sky 61 degrees F but last 2 days have been around 50 degrees, dark and rainy, pining for our first 70 degree day, may have to wait until about May for that!

It snowed off and on all day yesterday. Probably a total of about 4 inches. This morning the Jeep said it was 2 degrees. That is pretty cold for this time of year. The sky is clear and it should be a very nice day today.

It's clear in Colorado because all the clouds are down here in Louisiana! It's dark as night and rainy with a flash flood watch and low, black, ominous looking clouds everywhere here (much darker than they appear in the photo I just took, below, for some reason). But my house is not in an especially flood prone part of town, and my new lawn will love the extra rain so it's all good. Temperature is already 73F at 9:30 AM.

Wow, that's wild weather! I'm glad to read that your car didn't get crunched.

We had 6" rain in just a few hours yesterday. It's all gone now, though.

We have gotten off easy this winter. Had about 8 inchees of snow all winter all of it early December. Had 2 or 3 nights that got down to 20 below. I always look forward to El Nino winters since for us they are much milder than normal.

It looks like another storm is hitting the Northeast. But here in the Southwest, it is warming up again.

Looking for the Summer
by Chris Rea

Look deep into the April face
A change has clearly taken place
Looking for the summer

The eyes take on a certain gaze
And leave behind the springtime days
Go looking for the summer

The last couple of days have been warm and nice. Today was nice too. This afternoon I looked up while working on my house and I couldn't see the mountain peaks that are a couple miles off. I buttoned things up and headed inside. It is snowing heavily now. Shouldn't last long and then several days of nice weather again. I'm going skiing tomorrow so all is well.

At 22° this morning, Chicago had its lowest April temperature since 1997. But at least the sun is out.

Wylie, TX saw hail as large as 4.5", softball size. All school campuses closed today due the extensive damage.

Pea sized hail here in the mountains right now. That's big enough for me!

Yep, a friend had one punch through their roof. Missed me only by a few miles...

I saw that on the news. I can't even imagine hail that size. Most we get around here is pea size and smaller and it doesn't last more than a couple of minutes. We did have hail, think it was last week, that was pea size but never saw so much. Winds were high and really driving it. I was kicking myself that I hadn't put my truck in the garage (had thought about it when I heard the weather report) but it's never that bad. Luckily no damage. Still, can't imagine the golf ball size and larger that others get.

This hail stone actually fell in Plano, Tx. Maybe she has small hands

This weather is awful and its a very nice morning! We are under a severe storm watch with rain forecast to begin later this afternoon and between one and three feet of snow by Sunday. Saturday was going to be a busy day with the local kick-off meeting for the off road group out of Colorado Springs (200 to 300 people) during the day and the Kid's Camp silent auction that DD has coordinated in the evening. The silent auction has been postponed.

I was going to drive the camp's Jeep (I donated it to the camp last fall) to the off road meeting but I am not sure it is in good enough shape for this kind of weather. It is supposed to be on display with a wish list for donated parts.

And just to confuse matters even more, the day the off road group is coming up to the camp area to four-wheel and then have dinner at the camp is the rescheduled silent auction day.

This stuff is starting to remind me of my former work life.

Flooding in Houston

It's a wet one here in Htown. With the rain still coming down, so far there is water in a thousand homes in the western half of the county.

Time for some Stevie Ray...

So sorry to hear of the water, hoping y'all stay dry - or at least don't get too wet. Thanks for the SRV, a very nice way to start the day.

Htown, that map shows some serious rainfall amounts!

For those who may not know, the Houston area is flat, and all that water tends to stick around rather than quickly run off. Not good unless your house is on pontoons...
