What is your weather like right now?

Now you two just cut it out!

We do like the snow here. Wish I still had a snowmobile!

Sorry Dawg, I know 99% of you cold weather people know how to cope and do it better than I ever could. It's that 1% who really gets on my nerves with bit-ching "it's never been worse".

No need to apologize, Kay! This has been one of the warmer winters I remember here. Just our second big snowfall this season so far, and everything looks so pretty and clean.

Beagle was able to find and roll in a fresh severed rabbit's paw, and tried to snack on a deer skin yesterday before the snow covered them up. Snow has its advantages.

Last I looked, it was still above zero here. .7 above zero, but I'm looking on the positive side. If I'm inside, and I don't have to go outside, and the power is on, I personally don't care how cold it is outside. I can say that this winter since heating oil is running $1.58 a gallon right now. Last year it was up around $4.00 a gallon when we got our big fill. Or one of them, anyway. The second fill late last winter took us into January this year, and we might not need to buy anymore before the daffodils pop up. Mild winters have their advantages, as does low oil costs.

Two things I don't like about our winter here in Wyoming.

1. the WIND
2. the black ice that pops up on my drive home from work...in the dark...uphill...in the snow...both ways...barefoot...

Bright sunshine and the temp is 45. What a difference from a couple of days ago. Tomorrow is supposed to be the same. I can live with that. The sun will help the snow melt faster along with the above freezing temperature.

Last winter snow over my head. This year temps below freezing in the minus column. Who knows. Maybe next year we will have snow over my head with temps in the minus column. It wouldn't surprise me.

Every time I hear of even one drop of rain for California, I send a little prayer up for enough to end the drought. Still praying.

We had rain, snow, and freezing rain yesterday. There is still some ice on the trees. Today it's -2C. The crews are out cleaning up the mess on streets and sidewalks.

It's raining, it's pouring. The old man is snoring!

We are in the middle of the worst drought in California history, so what is my little city of Port Hueneme selling? 50 gallon rain water barrels!
