Winds are just starting to pick up around here, too. Not bad right now, but if they get higher, I just might find one of your meatballs on my table at breakfast.

We're expecting mid-50s on Saturday, 50 on Sunday. Then we hit the downhill side of the roller coaster ride come Monday - back below our average of 40.

Cloudy with a chance of meatballs!

Rain, rain, and more rain. It spits and drools and drizzles constantly. I love rain, but only when accompanied by thunder, lightning, blinding downpours, and horrendous wind. Otherwise, what's the point?

I actually prefer a long, gentle rain. It gives the gardens a good soak and doesn't break anything

We're having the opposite today, though. Partly cloudy and highs in the mid-60s.

Is it OK if I like both styles of rain, GG and rr? A gently rainy day is relaxing and good for the ground, but there is nothing like a molar-rattling, pavement cleaning downpour. Especially around here when it is accompanied by booming thunder and flashing skies. I really appreciate a great thunderstorm now since they are less frequent here in MA than what we had back in OH.

While I was sleeping, the bit of wind we had ended up diminishing and I woke up to bright sun and blue skies. Alas, no meatball.

It is a glorious day. Upper 50s, sunny, gentle breeze. Easy, like (Easter) Sunday morning. So why am I inside on the computer? Off to adventures! Adventures in grocery shopping, that is.

Later!

Raining here and making mush out of yesterday's snow fall.

It was 59F when I sat down here. It is not 61F. I have no complaints. Windows are open.

What is your weather like right now?

It's a sunny 57F, and no wind! We didn't get a meatball either

Just got back from walking Beagle, no snow, no ice, but lots of interesting smells that she enjoyed. I wouldn't enjoy them, but Beagle does. We have different tastes in smells.
