I can't complain, here in the PNW, although it is a bit cold for this area, just below freezing at night.
Harry is in England near Wales. I think Gravy Queen lives in that general area too. I don't remember where Mad Cook lives. We have at least one other active member in England. Haven't heard from Harry's brother, Bolas de Fraile for a while.

It rained a fair bit last night and this morning. It was probably freezing rain. Today it has been thawing. Currently 0C (32F). It's going down to -17C (1F) tomorrow morning. Oh my goodness, the roads will be a mess. The sidewalks will be horribly slick. I've been salting in front of my front door and made sure the water went away.

Thanks, TL----- I wonder if Internet service might be interrupted. I'll have to start watching for their posts.

Yeah, when it gets that cold does it make a difference? lol

School's were open today, but they've already decided to close tomorrow. This is the earliest I can remember them announcing closings. Probably don't want the kids standing outside waiting for the bus.
