Add rain to cold wind and things ice up pretty quickly when the temps drop. At 50* that's when Canadians enjoy working outdoors. Would someone explain something to me. Why is 40* in the spring so much warmer than 40 * in the fall. In spring I'm taking my jacket off yet in fall I'm looking for it.

Sounds terrible Saddlebag! Remind me to never move to Canada. I couldn't handle your winters.

For the past three days its been 84-87 degrees and MUGGY >.> the air almost chokes you, its so thick. That's what I get for living in Texas. We just got a huge storm that lasted about 5 hours though and its probably 72-75 now. Thank Goodness <3

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

That makes me feel a lot better. nah I like the cold weather. Im not real good when it comes to heat. Anything over 70 is too hot for me.

*Peeks From Under A Blanket* Is it spring yet? Saddlebag the reason in the spring you are taking clothes off is your use to colder temps in the fall we are use to warmer temps and therefore need more clothes.

I can't wait until the end of next week I get to stay home for 3 weeks of vacation and wont have to go to work in the cold. Working outside in the winter sucks!

Winter arrives here tomorrow. Like most of tghe Midwest and South, it has been very warm here - 70's last week, 60's this week, the 50's the last 2 days. But alas, Ithink the low tomorrow night or the night after is supposed to be 19, with a high Monday in the upper 30's. I got up this morning to hundreds and hundreds of Robins that are no doubt migrating jusdt ahead of the front. I haven't seen any flights of geese yet, but expect to start seeing them some in the next day or two. I don't know if this front will be cold enough to push the eagles down or not - haven't seen any yet...

Well, they say it will be 45F for a high on Monday. That is cold enough for me. And 23 low. That is just scary. I bought those happy big indoor plants for the patio last spring. Hmmm. Not sure what I was thinking, there. I suppose I could move the christmas trees and make room. :)

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

Supposed to get up to 61 today, yeah right! It's bitter moist cold, with clouds, cuts to your bones! AR is seriously bi-polar, saying 64 and sunny tomorrow, Monday down to 23 (at night) and cloudy, then back up to 54 and sunny by Wednesday!
Had a wildfire break out last Wed, tremendously dry. Then thankfully got a good pour yesterday morning, first one since OCTOBER. Still having to haul water, this drought won't quit!

After some rain... I'm ready for some crisp dry cold air to come on down!! A snow or two would be nice also...

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?
