Been ugly all day. Grey and rainy. Haven't we had enough rain?! Sheesh!

Temp has been mid-50ish all day but is beginning to slowly drop. A winter weather advisory was just issued for our region for tonight and tomorrow. There's a possibility of some of that white stuff making its way here. I'll believe it when I see it.

The weather has been so confusing to the vegetation and the birds/animals these last several weeks. Last week I had flowers blooming in one of my small beds out front and two of our forsythia bushes popped lots of yellow blossoms. If it does snow, they're in for a rude awakening.

What is your weather like right now?

Dark morning with lots of rain. It's a balmy 53* on Long Island this morning. Could be worse, all this rain could be snow

It is dark, overcast, dank, miserable, raining and raw bone chilling outside right now. And it is 49F. And it is going to only get worse as the day wears on. Tomorrow doesn't look much better either. I am sure there are more adjectives, but I just cant think of them.

It's a bright, sunny, windy 3F here along the river. Wind chill makes it feel even colder.

It's currently 6C (43F) and raining. It has been raining off and on since early yesterday. Now we have a wind warning,

"Strong winds that may cause damage are expected or occurring. Strong southwest winds will gust to 90 km/h along the St Lawrence Valley late this evening and overnight tonight."

The rain is supposed to stop and the temperature will start dropping at 22h and keep dropping until Tuesday at 01h when it is expected to be down to -14C (7F).

Sounds like fun, not.

We've been windy, too, taxy. It blew the winter sign I hang on the porch right off it's hook.

We've had gloom and rain all day today, too. I'm not going to complain, though. We ended last year with a water deficit and the ground and plants can use all the water Mother Nature sends. Fortunately, we should be done with the rain by the time temps drop cold enough to start freezing things. Back home in the Cleveland area, it was mid-40s and rain in the morning; by noon it was in the upper 20s and snowing, with the wet streets icing up from the earlier rain. I'm happily snug in the house.

Drizzle off and on with the temp at 60F. We are getting some pretty high wind right now and I noticed that the street lights are out on our street. Not a good sign.

What a difference from yesterday.

Today sunny and bright out. Temps are in the low 30's. 33F. to be exact. And the winds are still blowing. Just down to 18 mph now. Still too cold to take a short trip on my scooter. In order to run for the errands I need to do, I would have to bundle like Nanook of the North!

I need to take my scooter over to the Harley motorcycle place and see if they can create a windshield for my scooter and attach it permanently to my scooter. I searched every site for mobile scooters, and they just don't make them. So I need to come up with my own solution. I need to and want to be able to get out on my own in the cold weather.
