It's blowing up a storm out there. The wind picked up late afternoon and has continued. But it's not cold. And it's not snowing.

It's 27 degrees right now and getting up to 37 tomorrow. Hope it will melt all the ice on sidewalks and parking lots.

It's staying above freezing until tomorrow late afternoon or evening. It's windy, so the water is evaporating. It's only about half as deep in front of my door.

We may get to 30F today, or they are promising that. A lot of thawing here

You can throw some of my still on the vine ripe tomatoes at me, but I'm sick of our weather here. Ducking and running.

No seriously, we need rain so badly out here the weather people are calling this an historic drought and it's getting down right scary. I'm sitting here in shorts and flip flops with the AC on! It's just not right I tell ya! I guess it's a lot better than what most of you have to deal with but I just needed to whine a bit. Maybe I should get the neighbors together for a rain dance.

I had a friend who moved from Texas to Canada. She much preferred our cold.

I sympathize Kayelle. As that friend used to say, "You can only take off so much clothing when it's hot."

I know I'd never be able to live in a cold climate Taxi but Texas is much hotter than my little spot in Cali. so I can see her point. It's 85 here today, so I'm not really suffering, but we need a good bit of steady rain and even more importantly we need a good snow pack in the Sierra mountains for our water supply.

We're having a mild spell. It's currently 0C (32F). It's been going down below zero a bit, and up above zero a teensy bit.
