It has reached our expected high of 9C (48F). And it has started raining. From our weather website:

"Rainfall - late afternoon to early morning. Rain, heavy at times is expected. A low pressure system over the Great Lakes will bring significant rainfall over Southwestern Quebec tonight. Between 25 and 40 millimetres of rain is expected."

That's a lot of rain for that amount of time. 1"-1.5"

Ugh, so many of you are still getting so much rain! So hoping spring comes for you soon!

Sunny and warm here, 79F now and supposed to get up to 85F later this afternoon. A little breezy though, but not too bad.

Wow Cheryl ! With the east wind here (35mph), it feeling like we're going to be blown clear to the ocean! Hate these hot devil winds.

Not as much as in Somewhere, Florida. Don't know the city/region since to the reporters up here it's not important , but they had about 14" of rain in a 24-hour period. Flooded rivers and people getting rescued. Hope you guys stay safe and the rain doesn't last long.

We've had enough rain that Himself could cut only the front and sides of our lawn. The back is so damp the wheels from the mower kept sinking. Today's rain isn't helping!

Kayelle, those Santa Ana winds can be brutal, can't they?! UGH. We got a few wind gusts, but it wasn't too bad. I've seen worse...lol

It's been steady rain since this afternoon. The earthworms are out on the concrete walk. I've been told it's because they are looking for nooky. It's the only time they can stay on the surface without drying out. Makes it easier to find each other.

Huh. I always thought earthworms were, um, self-sufficient. Guess I'm doing them a disservice when I throw them back in the lawn.

We are still icky here, a chilly 42F.

I was told the reason they come to the surface is because the ground below is so flooded from the rain that they will drown.

Rain tonight, rain tomorrow. No sun until Friday. Temp is presently 42F.

Yes, they are hermaphrodites, but they do mate with other earthworms. If they didn't, I think the unfortunate, negative recessives would build up too quickly.

Yeah, I was told that one too. I'm pretty sure that one was invented so adults didn't need to explain about mating to kids.
