It's rainy heavy here, very windy, and about 50 degrees today, so this is our January thaw. Should be back to cold temperatures tomorrow, so I'm enjoying the wind, rain, and warm weather.

It has been snowing off and on here all day. When I woke up this morning the ground was bare. Now it has been covered by an inch plusof snow. Currently, it is 37 degrees F. with snow flurries here and there.

Again, Sierra, I wish I had snow!!!

We finally had a bit of rain on and off (more the latter), but I don't think it'll stay. It is a bit nippy, tho'.

It's blowing like crazy. My potting bench and other gardening stuff has been strewn all over the deck.

For reasons unbeknownst to me, it is unseasonably warm. Our average temp should be in the single digits, and we've been right around 30 for some time. 40 a few days ago! All that snow I mentioned earlier in this topic? All but gone!

To quote my all time favorite character from The Lion King. . . . . .

It's 55 now. It has only gotten cold a few times so far. That's okay. We had snow last Valentine's day....or was it the year before? I can't remember.

My it's cold for SoCal! It's 7:20 in the morning and it's 32. (Keep in mind we don't ever get snow - only up on the mountain)

It's raining, lightly. Suppose to all day.
