Let's see.
High today was 63<sup>o</sup>F.
Then it got windy >> 60 mpg and gusting
Then it rained
Then Sunny
Then a thunderstorm
Then we had a tornado warning
Then we had hail
Then we had more wind
Then it started to sleet
Now it's snowing and they are predicting near blizzard conditions with only 1" to 2" of snow.

Pretty impressive display. And I have to go out in it later.

Plotting my next adventures...

Could have sworn that list came from the current weather in Portland, Oregon. But, we haven't had a tornado in the area for ohhhhh a couple of weeks now.

+36<sup>o</sup>F yesterday morning at 6:45 am in Rhinelander WI, and today it's -19.9<sup>o</sup>F with a windchill of - 32<sup>o</sup>F.

Sun's finally poking through so that means it's time to go dig out the driveway.

On this side of the river it hit 73<sup>o</sup> around noon and by 2:30 it looked like a Whiteout Blizzard!
The wind was amazing and it was difficult to just keep the truck on the road.
I had a limb down in my yard from a tree I can not identify, it traveled to my yard?

Oh Midwest Weather.

It has been below zero most of the week here and huge winds and windchills. No camping for us. Enjoy those 60 degree days Greg. Come May I might see some of those 60 degree days. Enjoy! :-)

Money will buy a fine dog, but only kindness will make him wag his tail.
