I've always seen it like this: when you turn off a gas stove burner, the flame goes down and down and then there's a big POOF and it's out.
Every year as we approach spring, there's always that one last big winter POOF, then it's over.
I think today is that POOF.
Sorry 'bout that...
'Round here that "poof" is usually a March snowstorm... typically during High School State Basketball Tournaments. If the storm misses the tournaments (and it looks like it will this year) it hits twice as hard during March Madness. I'm predicting a March Madness snowstorm somewhere around the 19th through the 21st... likely 8-12 inches of very wet, very heavy, back-breakin', equipment-wreckin' snow.
Sorry 'bout that one also...
I like winter, football, wrestling, hanging out in the stove room and cutting firewood but I gotta be honest I'm sick of it and need to get fishing soon.
My prediction is no storms this month due to a strong SW wind that pushes them to the Ohio Valley and the Northeast. Lets see them break some more snow/ice/cold weather records.
Only 12 inches? Back in 07' we got 40 inches in a week in early April. That was a mess!
Sexy young ladies from my perspective!
Just got home from a meeting at church and stopped off to buy some gas. Air sure has a bite to it tonight. Hope the weathermen are right about getting into the 40's and 50's this coming week. Should start looking for the shorts
-14 here this morning. I'll take a short cold blast in March as long as January is mild like it was this year. I do agree though, we arent out of winters grip just yet, were still still going to get dumped on once or twice yet this spring.
-6ºF here right now but a forecast high of 35ºF today and 47ºF tomorrow. I just love how spring brings on total unpredictability.
Wokw up to 12 above this morning. Cleaned up most of the snow with the skid steer so my friend can get outside with his wheelchair once it warms up. We always think we got it bad until we see the next guy. Kind'a funny because we were talking about the nice weather and we both said what WS Wrote.. Might not get those sub type temps but we could end up looking like those out east..
I remember saying 'April Showers bring May Flowers'..... While standing in 16 inches of fresh snow... Talking 38 degrees for tomorrow... ;-)
See?? "They're" already back-peddlin'.
This was the predictions from yesterday...
And this is what "they're" sayin' this morning...
"They" have backed-off nearly 10° for Wednesday alone... and they'll keep back-peddlin'...
Just too much snow cover...
6* here this morning. along with about 10" of snow yesterday. just another day in paradise.
9° here... but we missed out on the snow
I gave up on the idea of spring and now just hope winter is gone before summer is here LOL
-26 here this morning.
Yeah that global warming is hitting us pretty hard here in Ontario.
16 on its way to 36 here today.
They have actually improved our 10 day forecast.
-8 here this morning. Supposed to be the last day of below zero for the season. I'll take that. We can have some more snow as long as we get some melting to go with it.
We didn't get any of the great Mid-Atlantic blizzard yesterday, but what snow we do still have is plentiful, and frozen as hard as concrete.
Don't move here. This has been the winter of summer. The ski hill is barely running and only on weekends. There has been a fireworks caused brush fire to the north. I think I'll do some cleanup work to make this place a bit less burnable. That's usually not a worry. The pollen burst was early. I've been wearing short pants daily. We should be OK for water this year, except for the Yakima Basin, which will be hurting for irrigation.
This week we've had lows in the 20s, but highs in the 50s except yesterday felt 60ish in the sun. The Mole People are enjoying the warm weather but now we have a new dread--the migration of Californians who are escaping their drought. Oh well, maybe I can convince a rich one to buy my place at SoCal prices and move to Minnesoda or somewhere cheaper.
There are rumors of getting near 70 this weekend and I think I'll skip the monthly music gathering. It'll just be too nice of a day to be indoors.
Warm here and clear with a full moon and northern lights. Last night I was out splitting wood it was so light out.
