What is your weather like right now?

Windy! Dang, it was windy, and chilly, in the low 40's, here along the river. Beagle and I raced each other to get back inside!

Well, we woke up to snow this morning. And it is April 3rd. There is supposed to be sunshine tomorrow.

So, snowy, windy and wet with temperature at 32F. Oh well, this is New England. No surprises.

Ya know, Addie, people in other parts of the country know to not be surprised by changeable weather, too.

Last night, our son posted great photos of blizzard-like snow blowing past the street lights. I told him to keep that snow on his side of the Adirondack Mountains. Apparently he did not listen. (No surprise! ) Woke up to six inches of snow today. A lot had melted from the sun by the time I thought to take the photo I posted over in our Random Photo thread.

It was May 1st, my brother-in-law's birthday. My sister and I were already downstairs getting breakfast ready. Lou came down to the kitchen and opened the back door to see what the weather was like.

Happy Birthday Lou. Here's a present for you. A full blown blizzard. He did work outside. An unexpected day off for him. We got quite a few inches that day.

It got up to 82F here along the river. Still very windy, but hey, 82.

Wow, Dawg - is 82F nearing a record there for this time of year?

It's 83F here now, a little cloud cover and a breeze just moved in. I've been outside most of the day - very nice.

Not a record, Cheryl, though it was very warm! I figured we were close to your temps! Mother Nature is a cruel mistress, though. It's to get down to low to mid 40's tomorrow.

Amazing how quick the temps can change from one day to the next.

A dark, raw, cold, day with bursts of fresh snow every half hour or so!

Making a pot of soup inspired by Steve's "Hungarian Goulash Soup".

It started with a leftover sirloin pork chop and some sauerkraut that had been cooked low and slow for a couple of hours. I added carrot, onion, celery, caraway seed, paprika, stock left from cooking lentils, chicken stock, the dregs of a ketchup bottle swished clean with some apple cider vinegar and simmered for half an hour until the vegetables were tender.
