1 Jan 2016 is sunny, cold (by So Cal standards) and unbelievably windy. I am going to have to brave the cold and go outside and retract my Sunsetter awmning before the wind rips it right off the house.

Glad you made it home safely Taxy, and also nice to hear you're having such a beautiful day, Charlie!

29F here now at 10AM. Brr. Supposed to be a high of 48F today. Sunny and blue sky, though.

That does sound nice Charlie.

It's 0C (32F) and snowing, big, fat snowflakes.

The snow was at 13h00 (1 P.M.), but I tried uploading the video here, but it doesn't show in the preview. Sigh. So I uploaded it to YouTube.

It's still 0C, but the snow is just tiny flakes now.

6 degrees, bright sun reflecting off a couple inches of fresh snow, it looks like a Christmas card this morning!

So naturally I started cooking!

Winter may have started late, but it's catching up quickly. Currently -15C (5F) and I hear it went down to -20C (-4F). But, it's sunny and pretty looking.

Yup. I'm not leaving the house unless there is an emergency. I'm really glad I shopped for essentials on Saturday.

We got an inch of snow last night (okay, all you Easterners can stop laughing now! ). It is mostly gone on the roads; however, our snow is very wet and if the temperature drops it turns to ice very quickly.

So, I probably won't be going out today.

Do you have crampons, those spikey things you strap to your boots?

Good morning! It's 54f here at 8:26am and pouring down rain! I will be going out later. I need to find and dust off my umbrella, and find some shoes that aren't sandals.
The SC just added up the rain we collected in our rain gauge for 2015 and it was more than I thought..11.17 inches total. Time for a new chart for 2016. It will be interesting to see how much we get with El Nino upon us this year.
