We love to talk about all aspects of weather, the effect on our gardens, and on our lives. It's a good place to keep a record of weather in our gardens from year to year too, so for that reason let's try to stay as close to the topic as we can. Please join in and tell us about your weather.

It is still cold here, but not as bad as the last couple of days. Today the high is forecast to be 14 F or -10 C. The low tonight will be 12 F or -11 C. Tomorrow is supposed to be much milder.

We woke up to 5 inches or so of snow, and fogged in, cleared up by 1 pm. Sun popped out for a little while, 35 F, so warm enough for some melting.
Snow photos so Linda won't bug me. Green Grin! Click to see the full beauty of freshly fallen snow. Smiling

Fresh snow always looks prettier when it's somewhere other than here Smiling Beautiful images Margaret.

Cold start with - 2. It was clear out when I got up but by the time the sun was up it hazed over. Heavier clouds this afternoon kept the temp from going higher than 20. would have been warmer if the sun was out. Looking forward to the warmer temps coming in for the next week!

Thinking Anywhere the temp stays 50's - 70's year round would be perfect Thumbs up

Much milder here after our cold snap. It is currently 37 F or 3 C this afternoon. The snow and ice is melting off the trees, so I hope to see the bent branches come back up. Crossing Fingers!

Got my Christmas shopping done after work. Didn't want to face that chore with the rain coming in. Timed it just right. Weather gurus are calling for about 2" tonight and tomorrow. Should be in the low 60s for Christmas.

Mostly high hazy clouds today with the sun breaking through late afternoon. Started with a temp of 8 and warmed to 36 with warmer air moving in from the south. You could feel the cold radiating off the snow in between the light warmer breeze. Temps are suppose to level out and be more reasonable for the next week.
