Cold rain and snow? Here comes sunshine?
What's Mother Nature up to at your house?
we hit our high today of -12F. Looking forward to tomorrow's radiant glow of 2F above. These wind chills are the coldest I've ever experienced.
Keeping almost warm indoors this morning as the mercury hovers around -6 in Kansas. Stay warm, my friends.
It has been a brutal winter here in sand county also. We too have had just enough snow every other day to keep the roads slick and hazardous with seriously low temps. Forecast tonight: 18 below with Monday and Tuesday night forecast at around 20 to 25 below with wind chills to 40 to 50 below. That's just flat out f#@*ing cold!
And to think that non-hibernating animals like deer, squirrels, and birds survive those temps is utterly amazing.
I don't know how our Canadian friends do it year after year; this furless cat is far enough north. All I know is that lots of layers and a few boilermakers help make the hard parts of winter warmer :)
*For those few San Fran folks crazy enough to come to Green Bay this weekend, Sunday will hit a high of three below....bundle up!
I predicted that this winter would be a bad one and that has so far come to pass, with a vengeance. In the Dakotas an early blizzard in October killed 75,000 head of cattle.
Here in NE winter was slow coming on but 2 days after I got the snow tires on (12/4) the snow started and has come down in typical deep winter fashion, at least a dusting each night and we live in a river valley, not on a mountain ridge.
Right now we're in the midst of the worst storm of the season, WS Hercules, which will bring blizzard-like conditions to Boston and the Cape later this evening depositing a uniform 8-12 inches by tomorrow.
There would appear to be a pattern of arctic air breakouts that will continue throughout the winter. Many attribute this new winter weather pattern to global warming -- the total of which I count myself them amongst.
If winter gives you cold & snow, dress warm and do winter sports.
Unfortunately a poor man froze to death in a winter encampment 25 miles to the South. I pray it doesn't happen anywhere else.
Sunny, some clouds, a little breezy in Boca Raton, FL. Awesome!!! I just moved down here from New York.
Even though it's still going to be a sunny day the high is predicted to be only 69 degrees here in Clearwater, Florida. I guess that's why they call us the sunshine state.
It's "Groundhog Day" practically everyday in Los Osos, CA: Sunny, high in the 60's, lows in the 40's. Like San Francisco ( 240 miles to the north), we can get fogged in for weeks in the summer - it's our natural air conditioning. Definitely a climate that suits my clothes!
Early December has really been cold in much of the USA. KC hasn't seen a day above freezing in almost 2 weeks. The beer in my garage is perilously near the freezing point. Storm Electra may give us out first snow Friday night before she moves east to wallop Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and the northeast. I have a nephew near Bozeman, MT: he sent me a photo of the Gallatin River completely frozen and jammed-up with ice chunks....brrr
about how cold it is in the Bay Area (which it is, though a bit warmer today) until my niece in Montana said it was -2 at 1 in the afternoon at her place.
high temps in the single digits and strong winds will make it feel like -20F to -35F for the next couple of days and nights. That damn northwest wind cuts right through the clothes.
