-7 yesterday morning and today around 1 in the morning here in the Thumb of Michigan!

The wind must of been blowing gust of up to 30mph a few days ago! I got wind drifts up to four feet just from a couple inches of snow.

Well, after a very horrid weekend with killer tornados 25-30 miles north of me, we're having gorgeous weather. It's been cold for us though and the temperature outside my kitchen was 38 degrees this morning. Supposed to be around 40ish tomorrow morning but will get up to around 73 with beautiful sunshine by tomorrow mid afternoon!

If you watch the weather channel and there's this streak of white stuff coming off Lake Ontario to it's ESE, that's me.

I told you we're tough here. I did like being able to do things other than survival though when I lived in CA.

Man, that's a lot of lake effect snow! Vermont has been known to get a little of that once in a while from Lake Champlain, but nothing like upstate NY. You guys win!

I got lucky today, the neighbor guy came over and plowed out my driveway for me so I wouldn't have to put my back out again.
What a sweet guy. I will have to do some home baking and take him some goodies. It is still cold here in Minnesota, boy I am glad spring is getting closer.

Default Land of drought

The last few days here in Orange County sure have been warmer than usual for this time of year. Left the windows wide open today at home. 80 degrees in early February seems out of place, while just a couple of days drive east into the great plains things are a different story. This year the local hills look brown and dry, the creeks are dry, the plants and gardens are wilting. No real strong rainstorms have passed through here in almost a year! Just a few rare light showers that last an hour or two that water down the dust...which is what will be coming out of the water faucet if things don't change soon. Yeah, this mid-winter heat wave feels nice right now, but I can't help but wonder about drought, water rationing, or water wars this summer.

Unseasonably warm the past couple of days here in So-Cal, up in the 80s! I don't like it to be so warm at this time of year, but I'd rather have it this way than deal with several feet of snow and subzero temperatures. I'm also wondering where our rain is.

Thought I would touch base with everyone this morning.
In southern Minnesota this morning we are at -11 with a wind chill of -25, they say we will get above 0 this weekend I hope, next week we might even get to +20, can't wait to get the sun tan lotion out lol.

LOL!!!! Amazing how we can think such but you know that +20 is going to feel downright warm and stuffy after the cold spell ya'll are having.

After they showed all of those subzero temps and windchills the other night I said I'll GLADLY take our few days of 100+ weather in the summer to not have to have that cold stuff. Yesterday we hit 71 but the wind was 15-10mph so it made it kinda chilly. Today is only supposed to be 65 but little to no wind so it will be much nicer and sunshine. But late tonight the rain comes and only supposed to be in the 50's for a few days then.

Well--that is too cold for me. I had read great things about Minneapolis but--if the weather there is like this--scratching MN off my cyber list. LOL.

48F and cloudy today. More Jonquils opening each day. Spring is near.
