You got that right (the part about July). I might have to head back up to Wisconsin for a couple of months in the summer...it was quite pleasant up thataway between June & September.

77 degrees, cloudy and very windy in my 'burb. If I had a skirt on, it would be flyin' over my head. Turkey day high is supposed to be 49 degrees.

Well now...that's a nice comment....

Ahhh...thinkin' about skirts and windy weather... During my w*rking daze, I wore dresses, blouses and skirts on a routine basis. I thought about placing weights in the hems so I could keep, ummm...modest during the windy days. I reconsidered however when I could see myself getting knocked in the head with those weights and losing consciousness.

High of 78 today, sunny and lovely. Nice! Last week was even nicer, because it was about 10 degrees cooler, sunny, brisk, and delightful.

October is usually New Orleans' best month for weather, but this year our October weather has lasted through November too.

Never fear - - we will have more bad weather later on. Rain, flooding, oppressive heat, hurricanes, even snowy weather can all occur here from time to time during the year. But for now, we couldn't ask for better weather.

Snowing and sticking in Seattle this morning, but I expect it will all be gone by this afternoon.

Snow harder now. I have about 2" in the drive. There is not going to be any melting today, it is getting colder all the time. My GF has to drive up north, but she at least has dedicated snow tires. Might be a mess getting out of the city tonight.

Ha

Boy was I wrong! it's past ten PM and still snowing hard. It was indeed a mess! It only took about twice as long as usual to get to work—the bus had to drive slowly because it was all chained up but the snow wasn't sticking in the driving lanes yet. But coming home took almost three hours. It's a distance of less than ten miles, with a usual door-to-door time of half an hour or so on the fastest of several available bus routes. The "nearly 3 hours" included 30-45 minutes of being stuck at the end of the bus tunnel, because the street we had to turn onto to continue was at a complete standstill. Unless warmer temps and rain show up two days early, I'm staying home from work tomorrow, and already sent an email to the choir director saying I won't be at practice tomorrow, if it isn't canceled anyway.

added later: forgot to say that the temperature leaving downtown around 6:30 was in the mid-20's and blowing hard. I would guess lows tonight may go down into the teens, and I don't think it's expected to go above freezing during the day tomorrow. brrrr!

Yech! I am always interested in the weather in Seattle... and San Francisco. It eventually ends up here. Guess I better stock up on the meds.

Not to worry. I checked the 10-day forecast on weather.com and your lows will be higher than our highs, which should be back into the mid-40's here by this weekend. The tricky thing will be getting across town to my parents' house for T-day. They have an invite nearby that includes me, but my mom says they have no chains and can't get to host's house if the roads are still icy. If warmth and rain are behind schedule, I may propose the idea of postponing until Friday. I think that would work for parents and host, but one of the other guests is coming via dial-a-ride (special transport for handicapped persons). I don't know if she can reschedule this late, or dial-a-ride may say they can't make it up the hill. She may opt not to come anyway, as getting into the house requires hand carrying guest and wheelchair up four or five steps which are undoubtedly a sheet of ice at the moment. It's tricky under the best of conditions and maybe not even to be contemplated in the snow.
