5* F, feels like -13* F with a blowing snow advisory. Typical New Years Day weather for Iowa!

About 15 degrees, windy, with about 6 inches of snow on the ground and more coming down. Our snow service was just here (second time today) and couldn't get the truck and plow up our driveway. I guess they'll be back with snow blowers. At least I hope so.

It will be in the 30s here soon. It's about 48 degrees here in south Texas.

Mother Nature is giving us the cold shoulder in a big way. Thermometer says 27F and the winds are blowing at about 15 to 20 mph, which puts the "feels like" at about 13F. Pretty frigid.

I hardly even needed a sweater in December, except at night. We're starting the new year out a little colder though. It is supposed to be in the 40s F during the day. Tonight it is supposed to get down to 25. Tomorrow night it is supposed to be 19 and the next, 17.

We've been blessed with some pretty amazing weather this past week. Today, New Year's Day, my patio thermometer read 76 degrees and it was sunny with just a few puffy white clouds in the blue, blue sky. We took our dogs down to the coast for a nice walk and found that everyone else had the same idea--there were lots of people in shorts and T-shirts walking and jogging along the beach. It does get a little chilly once the sun goes down, though--it's in the low 50's now.

It's meant to be 40C tomorrow (it's really sticky now) and our State electricity dept has decided it needs to do scheduled brown outs cos our delapidated electricity system doesn't cope when it gets hot. So they want us to not put air cons on and if we have to (!!) no less than 24C.

I'll be in hospital for lunch so their air con better be working cos it gets super stuffy in there when it doesn't. Driving will be good at least as they can't stop me using that aircon!!!!! LOL
