It's 15°C (59°F) and raining. We are expecting winds up to 90 km/hr (56 mph), 20-30 mm of rain (.79 to 1.18 inches), thunder storms, and mild flooding in the Greater Montreal area.

I imagine Dragn is getting the same weather.

75 and partly sunny, but very windy. 50% chance of thunderstorms tonight.

yup, pretty much the same as you taxy. Needless to say my geese are happy as pigs in the proverbial sh...

LOL, yes, taxy I did/do know what aereal means, but thank you. There is also a difference in spelling aereal vs aerial. It is not a common expression and I chuckled when I read it.

I'm feeling a bit like Dorothy Gale right now. Laying low on the first floor of the house on the leeward side. Winds are a steady 30 MPH, gusting to 50. Good thing the builder used hurricane straps when building the house, although our first home was 2-story and made it through nearly 100 MPH winds. 54 degrees and rain, too. A good day to stay in.

Easter Storms knocked out my power for 18 hours. Didn't open the freezer at all and fridge once briefly. All I lost was some milk about to turn anyhow. Sampled fridge temps were ~50°F. Was going to toss a 14.5 lb. raw thawed turkey but it's internal temp was 45° so put it into a roaster oven immediately. Also had a hambone that went straight into a stockpot.

So was up most of the night reducing stock; carving, storing, and eating turkey.

I have a "weather bone" now, when it's cold my sternum hurts. If I am toasty, my foot hurts. Can't win.

Princess, that's a "funny but not".

I sneeze when the temperature drops around my body.
eg. getting out of a nice warm bed, I can sneeze 10 to 20+ times (and yes, I've counted).
after working up a sweat, as I cool down, I'll start to sneeze, although the morning ones seem to last a lot longer.
It can even happen at the grocer's in the freezer aisle.

anybody else have a 'body weather vane"?

I think this is the nice weather, except for the wind. I'll let you know what I think when it gets hot. Meanwhile, I'm bundling up!

It must be cold if you're bundling up, PF. Stay warm and safe.


We've had a beautiful day. Sunny, blue skies with a few wisps of clouds. And cold! I opened the back door to shake something off and boy was I surprised.

Temp topped out at 52F and we are losing ground fast as the NW wind is blowing hard. It's been small spats of rain, sleet and hail for the past hour. It's going to be a sleigh ride on ice to work in the morning.

I looked out the patio door during supper and noticed it was snowing, not hard. Now, it's sunny with a few wispy clouds.

Winter wonderland today, and we're probably getting more snow tonight and tomorrow.

No more snow, yet. It's supposed to start around 2 in the morning.

We are having an amazing Spring. Very warm and little rain.

In fact, we are under a fire watch warning already. Already had our first wildfire up the road from us.

Crazy for mid April. Normally we are all stuck inside while it pours outside.

Raining here today but that just means the seeds that I planted yesterday will get a really good watering-in.
