Rain...heavy and hard
Wind... slow now but... faster and wilder tonight.
It's sure to be a mess. At least for now the snow has all melted.

The snow is slowing down, but we got a foot last night, so it took a while to snowblow to the driveway and around the cars, and shovel off the two decks. I had to shovel the lakeside one to get to the birdfeeders and fill them, and then decided to shovel the front deck, so we could use the Big Green Egg the first day the sun shines, or it is not windy.

Saturday and Sunday were a bit of a weather roller coaster. We were supposed to have had severe thunderstorms, with high winds, etc. Didn't materialize. Did have some pretty high winds Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.

When I got up Sunday morning the temp was 75 degrees F. December 2?

Stayed high most of the day and, then, started to drop when the wind and rain began. Ended up with an inch of rain.

This morning when I arose, the temp was 28 degrees F and very windy, which means the "felt like" was a lot lower. Clear today, but cold. High was probably 40 degrees F.

It's cold.
Not as cold as yesterday, but it's supposed to start snowing in a couple hours. Glad the grocery shopping is done!

No sun today. It's the usual England shade of grey and about 54F.

suziquzie, I lived in Saint Paul for several years. I know how cold those Minnesota winters can get. Stay warm!

It's around freezing here, which doesn't happen very often. People, myself included ,often use plants that will not tolerate a freeze. My inside entry is full of the potted ones that I brought inside, including a big blooming bougainvillea that I keep bumping into. It has thorns. Ouch.

I keep old blankets, bedspreads, etc. in the garage and cover the plants in the courtyard that may be damaged by the cold.

I won't complain too much. It's just a minor nuisance.

Cold, grey, damp..but with a light that could mean snow. At least its not the driving rain and gales we had at the weekend.

Haha! I can so relate to that - I have about eight (?) metres of bourganvilleas on my side fence (stops would-be robbers from using the backgarden as an access area) - and it has this big "cave" under the boughs where my cats love to shelter from the sun. Muggins here, has to get partially under the boughs without getting the thorns in me, to get them out. You can get nasty infections from bourganvillea thorns too. Love em though!
