Yesterday was a beautiful warm day, flip flops, shorts and T shirt for most of it. I took advantage and cooked a brisket.

Tbird, you described my day, and land situation perfectly. Apparently we have the same situation, though my elevation is lower. After 3 sunny days, my shoes are still tracking water and dirt into the house. The weather is beautiful, and much appreciated.

Past 2 days have been gorgeous....yesterday, I wore a long sleeved shirt but needed nothing else in the way of a jacket.. Loving it!! Not supposed to be very cold at all this week....70 today, 62 tomorrow, then mid 40's for many days. Weird but got no complaints here!

The storm came in at 3:00 am and woke up my wife and I. Lots of lightning and hard rain which didn't last but about thirty minutes. When I got out of bed it was 60 degrees and now it's 50 and dropping. The worst part is the wind. The gusts must be over 50 mph making it miserable outside. I have been working out in my shop and staying out of the wind so hopefully sometimes tonight the wind will lay.

Well, as usual the weather people have backed off from the weather Armageddon they were talking about a few days ago.....ho hum, so what else is new!! It is 54 right now, 29 tonight, possible snow starting during the night, low 30's tomorrow high. We never really listen to the weather anymore...have better luck just waking up and looking outside.

Here in Northern Alabama, we are under a State of Emergency, as per the governor, so.......schools are out tomorrow and lots of places have shut down.
Why you say???? .5-2" of snow predicted and it's only supposed to happen for about 3 hours over night tonight......and right now it's 53 degrees.
I sure think this fuss is just that, fuss.
But my wife is happy with a day off from teaching tomorrow. :)

Well, woke up at 4:30am to 43 degrees and some rain. Weather people are sooooo far off, it should be embarrassing for them. They have gotten worse ans wore as their technology has improved!!

I didn't lite a fire last night because it got above 40* yesterday. The indoor temp in the basement was 54* at 5 am. It's 13 outside with 20 mph winds. The high today will be in the teens, going below zero tonight. Tomorrow the high will only make it to 4* with another night below zero. Windchills are currently around zero and the winds are not expected to die down for the next 36-48 hours keeping the wind chill between -15 and -25 for the foreseeable future.

Cold, breezy, and sunny out.  Gorgeous day.  41 with wind gusts up to 20 mph.

I miscalculated yesterday, and uncovered all my beds.  They'd been covered almost a week, since that last gusty drop we had.  Boy, did they grow under those covers!  A little pale, but none the worse for wear.

I figured I'd capture the predicted rains last night, but, it only sprinkled a bit, with some noisy thunder.  I didn't know about the wind gusts predicted for today.  But, I think the plants are big enough to withstand the winds.

Rained last night, but this morning it felt like spring.. that warm moist breeze along with things budding out, knowing its to early but at least we know its closer now..  waiting on the frost that kills it back now..
If I'm not having problems,, I'm not doing it right..

It is absolutely GORGEOUS outside!  A breezy, sunny 65 with NO clouds in sight for the next 4 days.

Going out to spread some Scott's Weed & Feed on the front lawn in a few....and torch the weeds in the yard. 

My backyard grass looks like it's all weeds.....sure hope the St. Aug can fight its way back...

Beautiful here(somewhat chilly)...a little windy. Soon we will have non stop rain for days and days according to the 10 day outlook. Thank goodness the predictions are notoriously wrong most times!
