Weather has been great ever since the dog days of summer and is likely to be great until next August's bout of heat and humidity.

Raining all day, windy, increasing the Avalanche Danger. Yes, Avalanches go down...I was being sarcastic...the rain has turned into snow and it's starting to stick. /sarcasm/ So glad I forgot to gas up tonight and stop at the store, love going out on the ice rink in the car in the morning\sarcasm\.

Wet, but still relatively warm (relative meaning above freezing during waking hours).

Brings back memories of driving out on the lake and doing 360s...I am also kicking myself in the butt for not getting the few things I need on Thursday when I was out...First I have to chisel the van out of the ice...then I have to skate it down the driveway...I've procrastinated all morning...I don't do it soon, the stores will close...

Thank you Fiona. Sometimes, when online, it's difficult to tell when someone is saying something facetiously. I know nothing about Avalanches, and thought perhaps they didn't' reach the valleys below them, but stayed on the sides of the mountains. In Florida, Flood Studies are used as a statistical analysis to determine the risk of a flood on a specific property. Perhaps they do the same for Avalanches in terms of insurance coverage. If you live in an Avalanche prone area, I'll bet this is the case.

It's 10 a.m. and it's WHITE outside. Earlier there was a blanket of fog laying on the ground. It looked (and was) like clouds just laying there.

It's just warm enough for shorts and short sleeves and windows wide open.

I wonder if the fog would set off the smoke alarm.

31F, overcast, windy...looks like the wind was our friend for once and stopped ice from forming.
