Glorius sunshine and plus 5 degrees. The snow is melting and making a puddle at my back yard gate. It freezes around 4 PM and now can't get out of the back yard. Tomorrow will have to cut a channel through the drift so the water can run off into the yard. ..Or take the gate off the hinges for a while.
But then I'd have to tie the dog and I know she'd like me for that.
Hey! I'm just glad to get some rays for a change. Only a month or two left and we'll have spring EH!

snowing here again too, and expecting another foot or more. Snow predicted tonight, tomorrow, and again on Friday. That should amount to at least another 18 inches. My son rented a motel close to his work for the next two days. Rush hr in Minneapolis is the pitts, and he works on the other side of the city.
Now as for camping, I think that is a dream away. Hopefully in about 3 months. Then 3 months later it gets cold, the campgrounds close for the season, and the snow flys again.
You people in the south and south west with that warm sunshine all winter are envied by many here. By the time we northerners get the spring yard work done, the flower beds planted etc, 1/2 of our camping season is over.
I had a Grandma come here from Germany (she could have settled anywhere in the 48 states), and a Grandpa come from west Virginia. If they were still living I sure would like to ask them why they picked Minnesota, the land of 10,000 mosquitoes, and 6 months of snow to settle in. I sure would have picked some place a wee bit warmer than Mn, ........but Summers are beautiful here. Just not many months of camping.
Oh well, this soon shall pass, the snow will melt, and spring shall appear.

Thinking Spring here

Jack, a couple of weeks ago, we would have been out lounging by the pool under the palm trees if it had only been that warm here!

Here's our "Winter Weather Advisory" from 6pm tonight through noon tomorrow:

Quote:
THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN QUAD CITIES HAS ISSUED A WINTER
WEATHER ADVISORY...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM 6 PM THIS EVENING TO
12 PM CST FRIDAY.

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT TONIGHT THROUGH MIDDAY FRIDAY.
VERY STRONG WEST WINDS OF 25 TO 40 MPH WITH GUSTS OVER 50 MPH AT
TIMES...ARE EXPECTED TO COMBINE WITH PERIODS OF MODERATE TO HEAVY
SNOW TONIGHT...AND LAST THROUGH AT LEAST MIDDAY FRIDAY. THIS IS
EXPECTED TO PRODUCE LOW VISIBILITIES AND DANGEROUS TRAVEL
CONDITIONS ACROSS THE ADVISORY AREA. BRIEF WHITE OUT OR NEAR
BLIZZARD LIKE CONDITIONS WILL BE POSSIBLE TONIGHT AND FRIDAY
MORNING. WIND GUSTS OVER 50 MPH MAY RESULT IN ADDITIONAL TREE AND
POWER LINE DAMAGE DUE TO THE EARLIER ICE STORM LAST WEEKEND. 2 TO
5 INCHES OF NEW SNOWFALL IS EXPECTED BY NOON FRIDAY IN THE
ADVISORY AREA.

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY MEANS THAT PERIODS OF SNOW WILL COMBINE
WITH STRONG WINDS TO CAUSE TRAVEL DIFFICULTIES. BE PREPARED FOR
SLIPPERY ROADS AND LIMITED VISIBILITIES...AND BE CAREFUL WHILE
DRIVING TONIGHT.
Roger

I hate to do this to you folks, but it's 10:41 AM and it's 80.6 degrees outside, yesterday it got to 92.......that's unusual for SW Florida, but you can camp!

Well the good news is that todays snow stopped. I went out and got the snowblower out and cleaned the drive.
Bad news is that now we have freezing rain.

Robert. Package and send us as much of your warm as you can.

If you want to feel good about where YOU live... take a look at Iowa's roads here:

Red is "Closed" or "Travel Not Advised". I don't think I've ever seen half the major arteries in the state "Closed" or "Travel Not Advised" in recent memory!
