79 yesterday, nice and breezy.
37 this morning and going down hill from here. We will be below freezing until Sunday. Not a big deal to all you Northerners, I know, but a big deal for us. I love the cold and I'm not complaining BUT I sure as hell don't want the ice storm that is coming :(
I LOVE snow. I HATE ice. Can't drive in it, can't play in it.... Thank goodness we have a fireplace in case we lose electricity.

It feels like it's fifty here. And a little breezy. Had some sprinkles.

I was close. It's 58, but feels like 51.

there is a heavy storm approaching from the north sea. At the coast line there is a risk of a storm tide, well, actually several storm tides 'cause the storm shall last till tomorrow.
From here it's about 160km/100mi to the sea, but it will be still strong.
Hope we won't loose our roof like we did last time in 2007...

It is 60 degrees here right now. DH had the door and windows open to air out the house but had to shut them when we got a downpour. Now it's just sprinkling. We are to have icy conditions over the weekend, they say.

My husband bought a thermometer that he keeps on his end table that shows the inside and outside temps. There is a picture of a lady on it and when it gets warm outside she takes off her clothes and goes down to a bikini. As it gets colder she put on the clothes. When it's in between like it is now, she is just showing her bare belly. He told me that he didn't know it did that when he bought it.

Just above freezing here. It's supposed to go up to 7 C (45 F) this afternoon with showers into evening with snow overnight.

Yeah, that would not be permitted anywhere in our house where I could see it.

It's a balmy 65 degrees with mostly cloudy skies today. We're supposed to get lots of rain this weekend. Too warm here for snow.

You're both getting hit with some really ugly weather. TXgirl, a friend in Plano likes to post pictures of the ice hanging off their home. Needless to say, she hides inside when she's taking those pictures! And cara, I read about the northern European storms on BBC news earlier today. Sounds like the coastal areas could see some nasty damage. Hope you both stay safe and come out of the storms with power, roofs, and no damage.

We're pretty mild today (and tomorrow) with temps in the 50s to mid-40s. Foggy! Himself is out in the pea soup now; I decided to wait with ALL my errands till tomorrow. I'll be running both west and east - better have LOTS of leftovers from tonight.

Oh that is too funny! And yeah, sure, he "didn't know". Himself got me a little weather station I have on my kitchen windowsill, with the remote thermometer in the sunroom (so I know if it's warm enough to open it up to the house). When he gets back home I'll have to ask him if they had one with a buff beach guy donning and removing his clothing.
