It does not get too cold in North Texas but this is not normal. The last three days it has been where you can where shorts and a short sleeved shirt in the afternoon hours if you wanted to.

It got up to 80 on my truck guage today here in Houston...

The weather in the Boston area has been nice lately.  Some rain & wind last night and possibly snow tomorrow.  Forecast is just a couple of inches and that's all right by me.  We had enough snow last year to last a lifetime!  I thought it was funny some wanted to break the record for the most snowfall.  I could've cared less, to be honest.  Hell, if free beer and pizza were involved, I'd have been all for it!  Just glad that whole mess is over.  It was getting so there was hardly anyplace left to move the snow to!  So far, it's been a complete turnaround this season.  Nice enough to go out for walks at lunchtime this week.  Definitely enjoying it while it lasts.

A more typical snow day in Tennessee.  About 1-2 inches of snow, and clear roads. I'll spare you all more photos of my bench covered with snow.  ;D

We've had a couple of snowfalls since my last post.  Nothing major.  Certainly nothing like last February.  The first was about 5-7" of snow and a little on the wet & heavy side.  Nothing my snow thrower couldn't handle, thankfully.  More recently we only got 3-4" and it was the light & fluffly stuff.  Very easy to handle.  We're supposed to get another inch today so no worries there.  So, no complaints so far but it wouldn't break my heart not to see the white stuff again until next winter.

Well, it's getting much colder in the Boston area and only going to get colder going into the holiday weekend and next week.  It's going to feel like winter for a change.   8)

Winter has hit Tennessee.  27 degrees (but it says it feels like 19 degrees).  Going down to 20 degrees later tonight. I wonder what temperature that will feel like. I know it's colder than I want to feel.

Beautiful summers day here today.  8)

38ºC and thankfully finished golf just after midday. Watched some poor suckers heading out to the first tee as we were finishing.

Down to 20°F/-6.67°C in New York, and going to fall farther from now till Sunday, all the way down to about 3°F/-16°C.

Turns out the forecast was wrong. From the sidebar on my computer desktop:



Yes, that was 7:40 AM this morning. And I heard on the radio the official low was -1°. Even zero would be the coldest it's been in New York City since 1994! It's still (1:00 PM) just only 9°.

For you non-Fahrenheiters:

0°F =  -17.8°C
-1F° =  -18.3°C
9F° =  -12.8°C

Fifty-three degrees in two days!  :o

Awoke to about an inch of snow this morning.  A little on the heavy side because it was wet and slushy.  My arms were sore when finished with shoveling.  It wouldn't be so bad if we had a two-car driveway.  Nope, we've got a 7-8 car parking lot!  :D  So, it wasn't horrible this morning but time consuming as usual.  Not only clearing the driveway, but 4 entrances, two staircases of which one is two stories high, the sidewalk and driveway entrance.  The driveway entrance can be the worst sometimes because of plowing.  Definitely a workout, which is okay.  The warm air is definitely a help with melting a lot of what's come down last night.

Jed, where you live and with that size driveway, a snow blower would be a wonderful help to you, I'm sure! I know those ain't cheap though.

I've never once in my life shoveled snow. I refuse. A waste of time and energy. I don't have a sidewalk to worry about, so no one cares. I've never fallen on snow in my driveway either. Of course, I don't get feet of snow that prevent me from leaving home like you do in the northeast, then I might.

That is probably a good policy, Matt! I didn't know this, but shoveling snow can apparently be very dangerous for many people. I saw some doctors on TV saying that shoveling snow for 15 minutes is the cardiovascular equivalent of riding your bike for 5 miles. They said if you aren't in good shape, or have risk factors for heart disease like advanced age, high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. that it can be really dangerous to shovel snow. During the blizzard from a few weeks ago, many people apparently died doing that!  :o

This would be on my "waste of time" list as well, along with ironing (use steam from the shower), vacuuming (this is what roombas are for), and using a leaf blower (higher noise and air pollution emissions than a car just to blow leaves around).
