About 68F right now and very, very windy. I think I saw Dorothy and Toto fly by my office window a few minutes ago. We're supposed to get some "heavy" weather for the next 24 hours. High winds, heavy rains, tornadoes. Guess I'd better batten down the hatches and secure my seatbelt. More flooding is sure to be on the way. Blech!

Lookout, Connie! The radar is showing some nasty stuff in your area.

It is so nice to see that most (some?) of you have some signs of spring coming. I've tried to keep quiet about our lovely weather here during the bad winter most of you have suffered through. Today it is low 80s; tonight high 50s, deep blue skies and light ocean breeze. But each day is getting warmer, and by the middle of June, it will begin to get very hot. The humidity will rise and last through mid-October. Not for the faint of heart. But the daily sunshine always brightens my spirits, and the wonderful evening thunderstorms in summer are both dramatic and refreshing. I was in Portland, OR last week and was delighted to see the daffodils blooming. Every place has its magic.

VERY windy, slushy snow.
DH just left for work and I don't think I'll sleep well, he drives a truck and I freak out when the weather is bad.
