Boring, boring in Sherman Oaks. High 50s during the day; low 30s at nicht. Clear and sunny, but cold.

It is downright balmy here (high 60s?) and extremely windy. Very unusual winter weather.

54 degrees and raining, most of the snow is now gone and has been replaced by water LOL. Went out to the store today and almost turned the car into a boat!

It's about 70F right now and very, very windy. Tornado warnings have been issued for this evening.

The 50-mile drive from my youngest brother's house earlier today was a challenge. I had a difficult time keeping the car on the road because of the wind. I noticed several trees had been blown down.

Strange, strange weather for this time of the year.

That's okay PDS, I am happy it is raining, it is just taking a long time to make a difference. We are watching the front yard because it pools from the roof drains that go nowhere and now we also have all the snow from the plows there as well. It shouldn't flood us...I hope.

Yeah, the snow is disappearing real fast. Now the worry has shifted to flooding.
Happy New Year?

I never thought I'd hear a Washingtonian say that about rain! Guess all it takes is a few feet of the white stuff?

Fog yesterday and today mid 50s F. and headed towards the 60s. At the end of December in NW NJ--go figure. At least it's easy on the heating oil.
