Almost 9:30 here, 53F and windy. High wind advisories through the night, supposed to gust up to 50mph. Ugh.
As a foreigner I always think of California as the sunshine state (lower case - I know it's really the nickname for Florida) so is the song lyric true - "Hate California, it's cold and it's damp"?

Yesterday's rain is being replaced by this morning's snow flakes. 32F. It's so nice to have warmer temps again.

The funny thing is California is so big, they probably have a dozen or more climates, but somehow southern California's is the stereotype for the whole state. Much of the coast is cold and windy; San Francisco is freezing in the summer; my dad lives in the Sierra Nevada Mountains where they typically get many feet of snow in the winter. It's a crazy place.

It's 55 and sunny here. I'm going to go sit on the porch.

We have the warmer weather too. It's -1C (30F). We had a good snowfall last night. I checked the Environment Canada website and they claim we got 12 mm (1/2 inch) of snow.

Snow is usually measured in cm, not mm. I think it's an oopsy. It sure looks a lot more like 12 cm (5") of snow.

A light dusting of snow last night makes the 12F day look so fresh and purdy. Until I go outside. Brrrr.

Woke up to sun this morning, but now it's drizzling outside. Just as I was ready to shake the bathroom throw rugs too - figures.

Also saw that ol' Phil saw his shadow. Big deal. I know the real Groundhog Speak: 1) If he sees his shadow he gets scared back into his burrow for six weeks and sleeps. 2) If he doesn't see his shadow he thinks it's still night and goes back into his burrow for six weeks to sleep. 3) No matter what any groundhog does on Feb. 2, we get six more weeks of winter.

I don't care what Phil sees. I wish we would only have six more weeks of winter.
Seems we are always in the 8-10 range no matter.

Here we're happy if he sees his shadow. Only six more weeks of winter. w00t!
