67 and heavy fog. It'll be a nice day once the fog burns off.

My sister has one of those remote starters on her Jeep Cherokee, and when it's nasty cold out, with lots of ice on the car, she makes sure the night before that the heater and fan are on high when she locks the car up. The next morning, she just starts the car from inside the house and in just a few minutes, it's warm and all the ice has melted off the windows. If I lived somewhere where it gets cold like that and has a lot of ice, I'd sure have that installed on my car! What a non-stressful way to start the day!

A partly clear and a very cold 22 degrees Fahrenheit here. Looking for a high of 41 but that is a long way off. It is supposed to snow again tomorrow, probably, no accumulation though.

It's raining again. It is supposed to rain all day. I am happy it is raining. It will soften the ground for digging, and I can get some inside work done today.

38 and overcast, no wind. Beagle and I went for our walk, and a headband and gloves came in handy.

Windchill made it feel like -45C today! EEK! It was actually only -27C. Its supposed to warm up to above zero in the next couple of days. Please God let that be true!

21F, snow on the ground, no wind at the moment. Once I have the car warmed up and the windows clear, I turn off the heater, it chills the windshield so it doesn't freeze up overnight, unless it rains. I rarely have to scrape, sweeping snow off is easy!
