Started snowing about an hour ago. Supposed to change to rain/snow mix. Should be a mess by the time I leave for work this afternoon. Spring will truly be welcome this year.

I just came in from running a few errands, it it starting to rain. The high temp. today is expected to be 36 with rain tonight and tomorrow, a high of 40 expected tomorrow. I consider that to be the good news. The bad news is that when I entered the parking garage I ran into a crew of men installing large wooden beams to brace the roof of the parking garage. The roof has a couple of feet of snow on it and the rain will soak into it like a giant sponge!

I think I'll check my car dealer's website and see what he has in stock for 2015!

We have a skating rink out there. Freezing rain all night, most schools are closed today, and the paper didn't come this morning.

Our temps are warming up, but we had some freezing rain today. Supposed to be warming up gradually the next few days so I think our snow will start melting soon.

And there's the question. How many people will be safely high and dry when the melting starts? We have some wonderful new neighbors from upstate NY who recently moved here. They had to fly back there a few weeks ago for family duties, and they were ever so glad to be back to this new home of theirs.
Standing out in the sunshine talking today, they naturally are concerned about all those "back home". Good people we are happy to know.

Whoa. I actually skated out to the mailbox (minus the skates). Horribly slippery with the thaw and refreezing. It's treacherous here along the river.

Wow, Beth....that's a lot of snow, I didn't think New Mexico got that much.

Dawg...be careful going out to your mailbox!

Kay, glad you have nice new neighbors. Isn't that great? I love my neighbors around me and feel so blessed to have them.

We got some more rain a few days ago, that is always welcome.

We had a high of 1C (34F), w00t! That's the first time it's been up to freezing in forever. It's currently -6C (29F) and going to go down to -14C (7F). It was the coldest February on record for Greater Montreal. Average temperature was -15C (5F). It never got up to freezing all month.

I think it was the coldest Feb. on record in both Boston and Worcester (our "big" city in MA). It was the coldest on record in Cleveland since records have been kept in the mid-1800s. In fact, it was the second-coldest winter month in Cleveland, only behind a January from within the last few decades or so. Gee, it seems like there's Global Cooling all over. Ice Age!

It's about 23 degrees right now and we got about 4 inches of snow overnight. This is supposed to be our last measurable snow of the season. I think they said that last time!

Schools are closed and my DIL took the day off. She and dgs are sled riding.
