Started raining about five minutes ago. Wait, those are icy snowflakes mixed in. Is that the sun coming out, too? Seriously? Yup, all three of those weather events were taking place at the same time! Oh, and our current temperature is 52. Mother Nature has been drinking...

It's warm amd the sun is shining and I am thoroughly disappointed. They promised us El Nino, but they didin't say he'd be wearing a huge, very absorbent diaper.

LOL, Sir Loin, isn't that the truth. The Sierras have been getting some pretty good snow, though.

81F here now, beautiful sunny day.

Yeah, weather was all over the place yesterday here too. First it was a lovely Spring day, then rain, freezing rain, fog, and finally snow. Some folks heard thunder. There was about an inch of snow, which is almost all gone now. Of course, a lot of snow from earlier this winter is still around.

Currently 5°C (41°F)

This is what it says about our upcoming weather:

This is not an April fool's joke! An Arctic air mass will once again affect Quebec as of Sunday. Temperatures well below seasonal values are expected over Western, Central and Eastern Quebec. Nights will be particularly chilly with temperatures expected to be 10 to 15 degrees Celsius below normal. This cold will continue into early next week.
The expected high for Sunday is -5°C (23°F)

Yesterday we had wind gusts that were not to be believed. I was at the hospital waiting for my ride. I was in a semi protected area. A man was sitting on the bench outside the pharmacy. The gust of wind came that blew him right off the bench. That area is a haven for bad winds. So yesterday's winds were just enhanced in that area.

Our weekend forecast has everything being thrown at us. From high winds, high surf, temperatures dropping enough to give us snow also. The only thing missing is a hurricane. I will be staying in all day tomorrow. But Spike still has to take Teddy out three times a day for at least an hour each time. He had him out in that horrific wind. A couple of times he had to pick him up so he wouldn't get blown around and hurt.

Right now it is 64ºF. It is hard to believe what is coming. Here's hoping that the weathermen are wrong again, as usual.
