Old Man Winter

I'm looking out the window and see blowing snow with high temperatures below freezing.   I just got an e-mail from a local private club stating that if I join today, I can enjoy not paying dues until April.   Perhaps, I should send them a thank you note.

Today is 17 consecutive days below freezing. Looks like we might see 34 next week twice!!!

 

The record was 2013-2014... 75 days in a row below freezing.

From the forecast it looks like today is our last day for the next 10 days below freezing.  It was 31* this am, but is warming up to 37* today.  The next 10 days are supposed to be in the 40's with lows at night above freezing.  Dare I think spring is on the way??

I've heard it said that if you've never cried you don't really know how good if feels to laugh, if you've never been sad you really don't know how good it feels to be happy.   In that context,  when we return to our typical winter highs in the high 30s and low 40s, just think how good they are going to feel now.  And if by chance we should get some of those occasional days in the 50s, just think how enjoyable that round is going to be now.

Well said. I am so looking forward to Sunday, when we're supposed to hit mid 20's. And if the weatherman is correct we may have a day or two of 30's next week.

It's funny how I just read an article about how Alaska is complaining about it being too warm with it just being in the 20s. Heck it's colder here in PA than Alaska for the past 3 weeks which is kind of sad.

Our recent 3 days of cold winter weather has passed for now. So today I'm getting all bundled up by wearing a mock tee, long pants and a pull-over to go out and endure a sunny 63* round. Tomorrow more of the same except I might not wear the pull-over. 68* for a high and sunny again. Damn winter!!!  :D

After weeks of single digit and below temps, I'm seeing a forecast high of 45F next Wed. Close enough to get me out there!

 

Yup going stir crazy here in Georgia!  It's been a whole week and two days since I stuck a peg in the ground.  :(

Anywhere from 14 inches to 5-6 foot drifts about 25 miles west of Boston. Been below freezing so it could be a long while before we see grass again... [emoji31]

I feel your pain. It was 28° today and it felt like 60°. On the plus side we found a wicked sledding hill...
