    This is the strangest winter! Earlier this month, it was colder in Tucson than the East Coast. Then it warmed up for a few days. Then cold again. Today it is in the 70s. Up and down, up and down. It's not usually in the 70s in Jan in Tucson - but I'll take it when I can have it!

    We had rain and wind but it is in the mid 50's here today so our snow melted.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Here in Victoria Australia we are surrounded by bushfires that the firefighters say will take weeks to extinguish. In Queensland and New South Wales there are devastating floods, one cattle station 4000 head of cattle were washed away. The bushfires have also taken a heavy toll on farm animals and our native animals too, farmers are out shooting so many poor burnt animals that have been suffering for many days. Chicago, please send us some of that rain.

    The winter here in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire has been anything but normal. A couple of weeks ago the lakes were still unfrozen and the temps were warmer than southern California! Then it got real cold; some of the coldest temps in two years. Tonight we have three weather advisories for dense fog, heavy rain and strong winds. They say we might have power outages.

    New Hampshire expects snow and cold temps to freeze over our lakes. The State receives much of its revenue from skiing (downhill and cross country), ice fishing, dogsled racing, snowmobiling (we have more snowmobile paths than roadways in NH) and ice sailing competitions. This revenue helps keep NH free of sales taxes and state income taxes!
    You can choose to live your live as though nothing is a miracle; or as though everything is a miracle!

    All of you in upper midwest are sending us in Western New York
    State another dose of nasty weather after basking in 65 degree temps this am. Add to that the fact that Lake Erie is only partially frozen...so I suppose that means our famous 'lake effect snow'. Well....I know what I am going to do. I am going into my basement sewing room and forget about the weather.

    Well, I'm sitting in my bathing suit and sarong in 108.5 F (and rising).....we are in the midst of another heatwave and quite frankly....it's beginning to pall. Mind you, we have been watching the news and have seen what you are going through and we decided, it's easier to cope with heatwaves than snow and ice. Stay warm and safe everyone, we are thinking of you.

    Nice and pleasant here today, max temp of 81F and a low expected of 54F. Nice change from the sorching weather we've had over the last couple of month.

    I'm in Massachusetts....my Australian nephew came to visit and was disappointed with the lack of snow when he arrived. Nemo arrived over the weekend dropping 2 - 3 feet depending on the area.....he's happy....even after shoveling out his grandmother - which took a good long time. Now he's off sledding.....did I mention he is 28? Personally I enjoy the snow...........as long as I don't have to go anywhere. It's pretty. Making snow angels is fun and so is sledding. It's doing all the stuff that adults have to do regardless of the weather (like go to work and drive in it) that makes it nasty.
