Baby It's Cold Outside!

I don't know how it is in other places, but northern New England is going thru some record breaking cold. It was -24 f this morning in central New Hampshire, and tomorrow and Sunday are supposed to be even colder! If you are planning to come up skiing this weekend, you may want to reconsider.

Pretty much early spring here in Seattle. The Daffs in my backyard have flower heads, my flowering plum tree is in bloom and a few of the bushes are leafing out.

Was on the Oregon Coast last weekend (Cannon Beach) and the Daffs were already blooming there (along with quite a few other things). Pretty mild there along the beach.

I Used to live in cold winter areas.
I don't miss it.

Hang in there Zootsi! We just got a break from the cold. It's almost above freezing here in Milwaukee. Hopefully this warming trend will move east quickly. I just hope we don't get hit with those INCHES of freezing rain they were expecting would hit somewhere along this HUGE El Nino weather system spanning the country right now!

-30 Celsius (-22 F) for tonight in Barrie Ontario (one hour north of Toronto).

High of -15 Celsius today (+5 F).

At least the sun is shining today

Happy Valentine's Day!

This morning here in Naples, Florida I found it a little chilly also. In fact I wore long pants instead of shorts with my t-shirt for my hour long beach walk. But it has warmed up now, it's currently a sunny 78. OK, so hate me!!!

I actually like the winter, just as long as there is lots of snow, and the temps stay between 10 and 30 above. When it gets below zero it gets tough - the snowblower is hard to start, it's too cold to ski, etc. I still prefer living up here, however - builds character! ;-)

Ah, but I'll soon be walking the beach too. And now I must bundle up to take the dog for a walk...

buckeyemom, If you get that freezing rain, make sure you know where the flashlights, candles, and matches are and keep the fire stoked. You are likely to lose power if you get that much ice. Good luck!

New Jersey is also in for 2 snowstorms this weekend. As my dear departed Grandmother would say, it's colder then sin out. I'm tired of the snow and can't wait to be in Florida in two weeks also, Kodi. I just may not go home. Unfortunatly, my husband and I have promised our youngest (age 14) that we won't move until she's out of school. Then, see ya. And hello South Carolina!
