47 degrees and sunny here in the Pacific Northwest. Now who's laughing!


People in Trinidad?

dwilander did not mention that only two days ago, on Wednesday, we had a 10-day forecast of -2/3 degrees F for the next Tuesday and beyond. (-19 to -16 C for you rational types.) Fortunately, pocket of the Arctic air stopped and we will get only (more) rain.

We really dodged the bullet with the "Hercules" snowstorm than nailed New England. We only got about 6 inches here about 20 miles north of Detroit.

That's about to change... we're supposed to get a foot of snow Saturday night into Sunday night and sub zero temperatures and that's supposed to be followed by frequent lake-effect snow showers. Since I'm too busy to go skinny-dipping this week, that's ok by me.

I did live down on Key West for 26 months when I was in the Navy. It was a whole lot of fun (I lived right on Duval street just a couple of blocks from Hemingway's bar) but it was missing one thing... really cold weather to kill the really big bugs. Being an avid motorcyclist at the time, I have to tell you that I really, really hated "Love Bug" season.

We've had plenty of sub 10F days, dropping below zero at night (those are cold nights). However we've had 50-60 F a few days in the last couple weeks as well. Crazy when I can be outside in a t-shirt or sweatshirt for half the day and a winter coat and hat the other.

I guess I'm a cold weather wimp. It was down to 14 C today, at about 7 am, when I woke up, and again after 8 pm; so I wore a heavy sweater in the morning. Early afternoon I had to shed the sweater, because it was 24 C and I was going to walk a couple of miles on pretty steep hills to meet up with my wife (who wanted to go via all sorts of boring shops, on the flat coastal route, hence apartness) for lunch. For me that was a cold day. Well, during the summer I'm in the UK a lot, and get aclimatised to that sort of thing (or something similar - it rarely hits 24) so it doesn't seem cold

The Pacific NW is far too cold!

Hopefully will stay warm enough to be just rain.
That ice or snow around the freezing point is nasty.
A few weeks ago, we had some really awesome sun dogs.
Enjoy your sun while you can.

Well, we got hit pretty hard by the recent storm just north of Detroit. I've got over a foot in my driveway now and it was cleared out during the day yesterday. The sub-zero temperatures are supposed to be moving in today. Sigh. New England - it's on the way to you next.

Looks like I picked a bad week to stop sniffing glue... Oh wait, I'm in the UK all week where it's "cold" and rainy. I'm practically in shorts since it's 50 outside.

Have fun New England!

I think I'd have to vote for the 270-column table where the upload is not working properly. It made me smile and sad at the same time. If they can't explain a problem clearly, I don't hold out much hope.

Best part of that one was, "But I am explaining it clearly."
