One week of summer to go and it's going to be only about the 4th day tomorrow where the temperature has gotten over 30░ C.

So much for global warming.   ::)

21░ F this morning (-6 C) and sunny, but we're supposed to get 3 to 6 inches of snow tomorrow. Maybe sleet and freezing rain too (my favorites ... :o )

Well ... it's really (too) wet over here. It's been raining a lot in San Francisco lately. Kinda cold too. Nothing like the weather we had last year at the same time.

The snow turned out to be not so bad, in the city, at least. It warmed up during the day (it's still 32░ F or just 0░ C) and the snow changed over to rain. The streets and sidewalks were pretty clear by the time I walked home from work.

I took a few pictures this morning on my way to work ... I work in the New York Public Library and there's a big park behind it, Bryant Park. You can see all of my pictures here:

This is my favorite ... go to the link above to see it full-size!  :)

Meg on the path by the river taken on Tuesday last.   The white is frost, it didn't clear for three days.

Fabulous picture, Lin ... it must have looked something like the wonderful frosty morning I experienced in Sweden last November. This pic was taken later in the day, that frost didn't last as long as yours but it glittered on everything for most of that one day, at least.

I like the winter pictures Lin & KC. The New York Public Library has an awesome outside appearance KC. Do you know what year it was built?

This photo was taken a month ago of an approaching storm in the evening.
This one was on the 20 Dec last year when we had 150mm of rain in two days, this was taken just after 60mm in forty minutes.
My garage got flooded twice which has never happened before in the seven years I've been here. I live at the top of hill. This is down the road from me.

This one is a cloud tower with pileus on top.

Great pics Lin and KC O0

The cornerstone was laid in 1902, and the building opened to the public on May 23, 1911. :)

We had the weirdest storm here a couple of hours ago. It only lasted ten minutes, but there was thunder and lightning, heavy rain plus tiny bits of hail all while the sun shone brightly. Crazy.

It was unseasonably warm here last week. We're back to normal now and hopefully Summer will take it's time getting here. We probably won't see any rain for the next few months although it has been a fairly wet Winter so far.

Normally our rivers or "washes" as we call them are bone dry and sun baked. But a heavy rain can fill them very quickly.





It's definitely not a place to ride your horse during the rainy season.
