Well, the rain storm is finally here, but it's still going to be 64F tonight and tomorrow. Looks like the cold doesn't come until Monday night after the rain. We're going to have lots of mud again, but no snow or ice.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

Boy, do we have snow!! Snow, Snow, Snow, and we love every precious flake! 2 ft of it was exceeded long ago - temps are teens for highs and 1-3 degrees for lows. Way warmer than it was 2 wks ago! :)

Absolutely beautiful photo Northern. Perfect winter wonderland!

It was 65F(18C) in the lower part of upstate NY today! My mind has officially been blown. It's suppose to be that way all week too.

I'm slightly upset as I really wanted to have a white Christmas. We had 2ft of snow on the ground not even two days ago and now, it all gone thanks to the rain and warm temps. Anyone want to send some snow on over? ;)

Pick me! Can I send you some frigid temperatures to keep it "fresh" too?

That pretty sums up what we have had here too, except we had the wind and white out conditions yesterday. It is cold again...

Well after the blizzards, -20C temps, it warmed up to above freezing. Just when when I thought it would be okay to venture back into the saddle, freezing rain has hit, everything is a sheet of ice, treacherous even walking ..... Sigh*. I hate winter!
