That prediction was for the Saturday after this one. And, now they're predicting high of -1C. But, for me at least, and you probably aren't far off, -2C for this coming Saturday, a one day reprieve and then back to regularly scheduled winter weather.

DH was a weatherman in the Navy and taught metereology and has a couple of Navy buddies on Fb who do very accurate forecasts. They all agree you can't make an accurate forecast for more than 4-5 days out.

We have 45F now. It's supposed to go down to 22F tonight with a high of 32F tomorrow. Brrr!

Btw, we do have four seasons here; they're just warmer than up north. We can do without weeks and weeks of snow on the ground, though!

Here in southern England I can report that.... we are still sinking.

But not as fast as before.

In between the torrential rain there have been sunny intervals. (It still rains every day however so groundwater levels are not reducing much.)

Sad to say, there are people in town who were evacuated 4 weeks ago who are still unable to return to their homes. Tankers have been there every day pumping out water, but the groundwater levels just fill up what they take away immediately.

But, according to the news, California is in for a severe drenching after a drought.

Weather eh?

It has warmed up to -4F since a couple hours ago. The sun is blazing and that's a good thing. No wind either. If the sun wasn't out and it was windy it would be miserable.

Almost a foot of snow and now it's blowing and drifting. 22F, but with Windchill, 0F, 20 mph winds with gusts up to 40. First school closures are happening, they announced them last night. Of course, I still have to go to work.

We are enjoying the same weather. It's already up to 8F here.
