Sorry to hear about all the storms in northern Europe. Hope you're all OK. I live near Barcelona. Today has been ridiculous: 22C in the shade and way too hot for my two black cats to bask in the sun for long. Rather than the middle of January, it feels like the middle of May. We've had no rain to speak of for ages and there's very little snow up in the Pyrenees, so we're likely to have severe water shortages in the summer. The temperatures are forecast to fall tomorrow, but if anyone's got any rain they'd like to send our way, it would be very welcome.

What a great post! Coombines 2 of my passions...cooking and weather!
It's freezing right now in New York City, 27 degrees but as of yet we are still awaiting our first meaningful snow of the season. We had a snow shower yesterday but nothing really stuck and it only snowed for an hour.

It's 52F here in the Arizona desert, and I'm cold. I feel like a sissy saying that when the temps are so much lower everywhere else. My sister is freezing in Texas at 27F with snow showers.

Snow, snow and more snow. When are they going to fix this web site anyway? I miss it!

Our first snow of the season so I really can't gripe.

Yep, this site is really screwed up at the moment. I hope the computer wonks, who I am sure are working very hard today, will get it fixed pretty soon.

Yep, auntdot - first snow of the season and most of the schools promptly close.
But I should not sneer too much - staying home myself today because there's too much ice between me and the main highway.

Well, as forecast, the temperatures are dropping. From being outdoor sunbathers, all the cats want to do is flop on top of me. Not easy given that there are four of them.

We had a brief shower today and by Thursday snow is expected across all of northern Catalonia, not just the Pyrenees. That'll be a shock. Wonder how the cats will take that. I'm about to bring my wormery in to keep it in the bathroom during this cold snap. Hope none of the worms try to make a bid for freedom...

Just bone chilling and dreary here today.

Come on sunshine!

WACKY, WACKY, WACKY! Snowball-making in Malibu (So. California) recently . By the end of the week, hopefully, back to strappy sandals.
