It is 56 degrees and sunny right now. Still a bit of snow on the shady hill behind the house. DH wants to take the snow tires off, but we are scheduled for snow Wed into Thurs. Depends on which way the wind blows how much we will get.

What kind of temperatures are you guys getting? Winter tires are good for more than just snow. They have measurably better stopping distances on dry pavement when the temperature is 7C (44.6F) or less.

Nope. I'm a vampire too! It's the reason our gardens are overgrown and desperately in need of grooming and an overhaul. Unfortunately, the mosquitoes around here are early birds, coming out well before dusk. Can't get anything done without dousing myself liberally with chemicals

*****************

We've been cloudy most of the day, with the sun making feeble and unsuccessful attempts at shining. Had a couple errands to run and found it rather mild. Mom Nature is going to be having occasional hot flashes the rest of the week - 51 tomorrow, below freezing Wednesday, etc...

It's been a glorious, sunny 61F! Beagle and I just got back from a walk. It's starting to cloud up here along the river.

For some reason, I can't remember having a mosquito bite since I was a kid. They just don't like me. My husband is constantly getting all bit up. I wonder why that is? I tell him it's because of all the sweets he eats. I rarely eat sweets. They want that sugar.

We have 64F right now and are headed for a balmy, partly sunny 73F today! Just beautiful.

It's been sunshine and temperatures in the mid 70s to low 80s since it finished raining the 24th of February.
