That was just the biggest one that came down. The trees around here are not built for high winds.

Warmer day today (thank the Lord!) only about -3 and snowing. Sigh. I'm so tired of winter. Its been a terribly weird and long one this year. Bleak, cold and lots of snow. The occasional warm spells (like today) don't last long and we are plunged back into the deep freeze of -20+ weather. (Or is that -20- weather???)

Whatever it is...it's freakin' cold! I'm wearing socks, in the house! -6F, right now. Glad I got my shopping done last night.

It's warmed up to a balmy 37F here, very windy and raining now. Shouldn't take long to wash away the couple of inches of snow we got yesterday.

That is premium sailing weather, Zhizara!

Our weather was sunny with a chill in the air. Heavy jacket weather.

Tornado warning; radar shows a big storm (no rotation) about 5 miles away moving this way at approximately 45 mph. Go bucket, oil lamps and weather gear at the ready.
