We love to talk about all aspects of weather, the effect on our gardens, and on our lives. This is 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.

Good morning.
I'll chime in. 18/38F & clear is today's forcast.
A frozen fog drifts in & out of our garden, leaving a frosted, fairy-like look to the branches of the trees. The neighbor horse trots out of her barn for a look - then disappears back to the barn.

I love the snow covered Rooster, Char! Smiling

Overcast and cool here. Just plain gloomy. Sad

The rooster is nice. But it keeps making me think of Kellogs breakfast cereal. Now I want a second breakfast.

Hilarious! Nothing wrong with a second bowl...
Pretty pictures!
It was colder than I thought this morning, only 19. Didn't feel that bad when I took Sky out first thing. Turned out to be a really nice day for the first day of winter. Blue sky sunshine and a high of 40. Snow was just the right sticky for snowballs... great exercise for the dog. He's napping now. Smiling

The ones that's around zero to 20 degrees or so is a little to cold for me. I'm here complaining about 28 to 32 degree temps.

Raining, 40, going down to 28 and clearing tonight. I finally have a window view at the hospital so I can actually see the weather. Looks like I'll be here for a while. Lots of problems. I had emergency surgery on Monday morning and going through all kinds of crazy stuff now. Super hope my parathyroids kick back in or I'm in big trouble. Can't make calcium without them and they are finicky. Mine are currently on strike.

Good luck, Zoia.
I am sorry it is not smooth sailing.
I hope we can help take your mind off things for even a small respite from your woes.
