    I am in So CA and it is cold enough for it to snow again. It surprising did snow last New Year's Eve. I want my 70s degrees temperatures back.

    One year we had an ice storm, no power for a few weeks. Now we have on the AC. I am reading a diary of a lady in NY from the 1800's and it was balmy on Christmas Day then. Weather has cycles.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    One of our young trees has sprouted leaves! Too rainy to snap a pic. I swear our grass is green! Should be under freezing here. I hope this warmth does not delay winter into June!

    Husband's Christmas gifts: 3 insulated flannel shirts and an insulated vest. Temperature the last 4 days: 78 degrees. This is the warmest it's been in NC since I can remember.

    pretty but poor thing is right. the whole world is screwed up, I'm nervous about it.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    We are still digging out from under 30+ inches of snow. We had to buy a set of snow chains for the tractor. Even though its four wheel drive it will get stuck.

    We also had to get a set for my husbands truck. He is from Southern California and never used chains before.

    Last winter we barely had any snow.....12" maybe, but it was bitter cold. Mother Nature is making sure we get our share this season. The snowpack was so small it didn't fill the reservoirs last spring. We actually saw the bottom of Wickiup reservoir for the first time.

    We've had a white Christmas this year, and cool temps. Though I had some confused daffodils blooming a couple weeks ago! Now we are expecting temps in the teens for next week. Yikes!

    Crazy! I saw a chipmunk out yesterday. My husband said it's snowing in El Paso right now. Our weather finally turned cold today.

    We had Christmas dinner outside on the deck last night! Rainy but warm. Have had the windows open in the house for the last 2 days and the fans going in the bedrooms to get them down to cool enough temps to sleep! Normally very chilly here this time of year. Haven't checked many of the plants yet though. Although I am sure they are quite confused!

    Yeah, we've been having weird weather too. A couple of days ago, broke the high temp. that had stood for a hundred years. But tonight we're suppose to get freezing rain. Sounds like Monday will be a good day to make chili

    We move from Missouri to Texas to enjoy the winters and what happened, Missouri has Texas weather. I still think we made a great move, we get to see the Gulf as often as we can, Cannot do that in Missouri, the River is muddy. Merry Christmas and Happy New Years to everyone.

    It was around 80 here on Christmas. We normally wear PJ's when we open presents so this year I told my daughter we'd make it a themed one and all wear red plaid. It took me 5 stores to find the 2nd newborn sleeper for the twins, but we all got them. got up Christmas morning and it was too hot for us to wear them. As long as we don't get the snow we've been getting the past two years I'll be happy.

    I was born in Ogden, Utah, Febuary,15, 1947 and the tulips were in full bloom. Really no winter that year. Next year they used a dog sled to travel over the fences to bring medicine to my grandparents farm just up the canyon by snow basin. Last year we fought ice & snow here in metro Atlanta & this year we are almost swimming in our shorts. So wet some huge trees fell due to super wet soil. We put plants in greenhouse, take plants out, put plants in.....

    No wonder the chipmunks are confused.

    80's here in Central Fl. I remember in early 70's first DH and I came from NJ to Fl at Xmas and is was warm, sunny and very beautiful. Have lived here since 96 and weather varies from year to year. They say El Nino is behind it this year.

    I was reading about weather over the centuries. The weather patterns aren't off as many think looking at it from century to century. The changes in the century are normal, just not normal to us living in the pattern changes. Makes life more interesting for sure.
