24F, feels like 4F. The easterly winds have begun and they are always cold, howling out of Hellgate Canyon. 17 mph this morning.
Crazy as it sounds, I have heard of Hellgate Canyon. Don't ask me where or why.

All I know is these upper twenties feels like spring.
Give us this day our daily bacon.

22F feels like 6F, it's trying to snow.

We got to mid 30's today, but with a wind that cut right through, along with snow, so it felt about like when we were below 0F. It's 23 now.

29 degrees. We're having a heat wave, a tropical heat wave. Oh, wait, that's the song title thread. LOL

We have 31F right now. We're expecting 44 and mostly sunny tomorrow, so the rest of the snow should melt away. Here's our backyard today. Btw, that tree in the middle is my bay tree.

What a pretty backyard! I love that little shed.

Almost 9:30 here, 53F and windy. High wind advisories through the night, supposed to gust up to 50mph. Ugh.

Shed? I thought that was her house! LOL Just kidding, GG.

Our snow is always the last to melt because of all the trees on the hill. Our back yard hardly gets any sun.

Seriously weird. I know this area is noted for its damp climate but this is ridiculous. Yesterday rained cats and dogs all day and blew a gale. This morning there is a balmy breeze and sunny blue skies.

I went outside earlier on and noticed the there are strawberries on the self-set wild strawberry plants round the front steps!!!

There's only been one morning this winter when I've had to scrape frost off the car windscreen and the only snow I've seen was a half-hearted attempt at sleet on Friday afternoon.

The news the other day was full of the weather chaos in Atlanta. Poor inhabitants. At least if you are used to harsh weather you can be ready for it.

Finally got the car heater sorted out last Wednesday.
