Out here, they say if you don't like the weather, wait a few hours. It's currently 88 here -- and tomorrow night and Monday night, there are freeze warnings in place as yet another dry cold front brings in heavy winds and no rain starting tomorrow. Back in January we were getting nights dropping in the mid 20s and hitting the 80s during the day.

How many is several? Four would make a month. I said away, didn't say 'in the future' (although I meant it).

And to answer your question - two months. We had temps in the 90's in late Feb.

The sun shone today. That's all I got to say about that.

Sorry! Silly me! Just (finally) showing exuberance since, it seems, the light at the end of the tunnel has not been turned off due to market conditions.

The snow storm missed us but I just got out of work at 5am and the windchill was 21. Looking at the 10-day forcast, spring being a month away looks about right.

We got Ziggy's heavy winds last night, blowing so hard that I couldn't get to sleep for a couple of hours. Those were quite some winds! I like wind normally but these winds were very strong and relentless.

This morning, they are mostly gone but the temperature has dropped down to the 50's (feels like 40's).

Forecast high for today: 91.
Current temperature: 97.

Summer has arrived. The chiggers and scorpions can't be far behind.

Where are the fire ants, Ziggy?

It was so hot the last few days, nm, Aaron's snowpak must have just arrived, had to haul out the sweaters. When we bring out the heavy wool coats, we call that summer.

59 degrees F today, partly sunny.
The rumor is we will have temps in the 80s this weekend. Bring it on!
Cruising in the Mustang with the top down is long overdue.

Spring is finally here. It is going to be in the mid 80's this weekend in Pa. It was a long winter.

Big fluffy snowflakes melting as they hit the ground at a balmy 34 F.

Send us some chiggers and take the *&%^% snow and cold.
