Snowing here, too. Just a light dusting on top of a couple inches this morning. It seems warm, but I'm not sure what the temp is. Close to 30 anyway.

It feels downright tropical at 20 or so degrees. My poor doggie. She wanted to go out when I was up at 3 a.m. a few days ago. I looked at my thermometer, -11. I let her out, but watched (she's a 25 lb short-haired dog). She peed and tried. Then I let her in and gave her a treat. She wanted to go out again, and she tried again. (at this time I think it was -14). She's a very well house trained dog, but she finally gave in and pooped inside. Couldn't bring myself to be mad at her at all!

We'll have the AC on at some point today as the temps will be in the 80's. Although that's especially warm for this time of year, it still feels like Christmas as it's always been home for me.
After college, I moved to southern California and had a beautiful view overlooking the Belmont Shore Pier. Loved it there except for the lack of seasons. Time felt like it started to rush by, so I had to move back to where there were distinctive seasons with snow and all that goes with it. I will admit that I do miss that "paradise weather" at times, but watching the changes in nature at the same time.

For some reason that statement struck me as being so sad. But I can understand. The first Christmas I was in South Texas, it was 90F. and certainly not the holiday weather I was used to.

17 years away from Maine and I don't miss winter much at all. We are lucky to get changes of season, but luckily very little snow.

44F today, all of the snow & ice are melting. The sun has been shining all day, it's turning out to be a pretty decent day.

Yep, things are thawing here again, too.
Having dogs, I like a few thaws during the winter. Well, actually, if it thawed every few days that would be even better. It lets you start with a clean slate so to speak...

Not quite thawing here, but less cold. -9C (16F). We got a couple of inches of snow yesterday and it snowed a bit today.
