It's finally in the low thirties and it's snowing and blowing so bad it must be a white out. Still too dark to see. I'm sure I'll have to clear the driveway this morning.

It's currently 19 degrees. Going to get up to 45 pretty fast today. THAT"S SERIOUS GRILLING WEATHER !!!

I am headed up to the store for some chicken bones today. And some veggies that can be grilled too. O and I have Pineapple chunks that I can do something with. This is practically Picnic Weather folks!!

Mr Plan-Ahead moved the grill alongside the house last fall. Haven't been able to use it all winter. Besides being buried in snow drifts, the wheels are frozen to the ground. Will get the smokey joe out of the garage and set it on the back steps.

More snow and back to sub zero predicted towards the end of the week. Got to make hay while the sun shines.

31F, no snow, but it was sloppy wet last night with the giant snow flakes coming down, so I am sure the car is covered in ice.

Light snow that stopped and should start again this PM. Currently -10C (24F) and going up to -3C (27F). Should go above freezing tomorrow through Saturday, with freezing over nights. This is encouraging.

What to do, what to do...
This is a very heavy snow, but it is supposed to warm up and rain in a couple days.
I'm debating whether or not to clear the snow now (that I need to do by hand) or let mother nature do it, but if something happens that it doesn't warm up and rain, it will really be a mess.

Wow. It's 49F here along the river. And this is the snowiest February on record for us.

When I read "here along the river" I had a sudden flashback of the old TV show "Tales of the Riverbank".

Adorable! Thanks for the link, RJD!

It's gorgeous here! Never thought 50F and sunny could feel so good! We still have a couple feet of snow, but it's melting fast.

Supposed to be above freezing here for most of the week. They had flood warnings for the Muskoka area.
