35F it's all melting w puddles everywhere. The sun is shining, the wind is cold if you are out long enough, otherwise it's a beautiful day!

It's snowing. Quelle surprise. And a brisk 20F here along the river. Supposed to be warm and rainy next week, so DH is putting off shoveling.

Dawg, your DH sounds like Himself. He didn't shovel/snow blow yesterday or today because "it's going up to 45 on Wednesday". "Hold on! It's Saturday, I'm going out shopping, and I won't be able to make it up the driveway hill." And I didn't. Got 2/3 up and went into the house and made him get it into the garage. Last thing I wanted to do after driving today was get stuck in the driveway...or anywhere. As they say up here, the weathah is a wicked pissah!

20-something and blowing the snow around. UNCLE already!

It's 4F. I thought it was supposed to be warming up, but I guess not.

-12C (10F), which is okay and the sun is out and it's really bright. It will be going down to -18C (0F) overnight. Snow forecast for Monday and Tuesday.

I'm sure a lot of you also agree with this:

You're right taxy, time to kill the snowman! I wish they had an Olympic event for snow blowing. I'd be able to send Himself out, encouraging him to train for the gold! He's so tired of cleaning the driveway - he says every time he cleans it we get snow again. I swear we're building our next house just so we can put heating elements under the driveway.

Don't forget to put drainage for the melt water to go away.

Reykjavik, Iceland has heated streets and sidewalks. Cool, Cool Iceland: Geothermal Iceland - Heating up of the roads and even a beach

Right now, I can report from southern England that..... maybe....... it hasn't rained for a whole day! Yay!!!

I cannot remember the last time that happened.

The (gulf stream?) that shifted direction and caused the extreme cold weather in the US/Canada proceeded to dump a load of (extreme) wind and water on Britain.

We're all in it together guys!

But England is still basically sinking. (More rain forecasted tomorrow.)

Chin up Katy! We are hoping you folks can stay above and do some drying out. Shrek and I have been watching the news and feel for you and your countrymen who are in danger.
