Ok, I went from about 60 degrees F in Houston, TX to minus thirty in Astana, Kazkhstan (the coldest capital in the world by the way) in about 24 hours. Am I happy? You bet--where else does my breath freeze in my tracks......oh, well, it gives me stories to tell to my grandchildren.......

Snow storm... better check the gas driven snowblower and make sure its ready! If not I will have to use the McDonald's snowblower (shovel + kids + McDonald's = snowblower). Not as neat and tidy as the gas driven snow blower but will do in a pinch

Sleepless and cold in Seattle:
Been sitting here at the computer facing the window since 3am. (Couldn't sleep) It's a little after 1 in the afternoon now and I am watching the rain slowly change to snow. Temp at 34 degrees. I'm told you can drive in a 20 mile circle around my house this afternoon and find rain, sleet, freezing rain and snow. Don't like the weather here? Drive 10 minutes in any direction and it will change...just don't look for sunshine.

It's dark now, but still cold. 32 degrees, so the weather says (but I'm sure they are warming it up a little for us). It was very windy today, but sunny - so deceiving!

HO LEE CRAP! You should see the weather blowing in from the north today. YIKES! It is freaking freezing and expected to drop some more and it is snowing and drifting and just generally NASTY. The snow was drifted so badly I had to shove the back door with all my strength to let the dog out to pee this morning. Still snowing. Still nasty. 0F right now and dropping.
