SNOW!!!!!!!!!!! A 4 letter word for sure! Bud.
No just a little N/E breeze high of 56 tomorrow for the Florida-Georgia game... gonna be fun!
Snowing now. Forecast 28*F tonight. Mixed emotions. Sad for kids but guy a near me is planning another outside party with a bonfire and band. Usually it's a rock band with big sound amps. Has no respect for people living near him. Some closer than me. Were in the country so no noise restrictions.
Kinda-sorta snowing here in Lansing. Rain / snow mix, going down to high 20s tonight. Glad I have a big ol' mountain of firewood cut for the winter.
It has dropped down here! Yesterday was near 80, but today in the mid 70's with rain? expected? later this evening and tomorrow! They actually expect 1/2 inch! What's rain? The native plants are drying up from lack of rain. Becoming a desert.
I think we were at the airport in Detroit this summer and a lady from Calf said they only flushed#2!!!!! Hardly nothing beats the smell burning wood gives off! My corn smell's like tost and leaves me hungry! Bud.
It's been unusually warm in the Barcelona, Spain area. Almost 10pm and it's 66 deg F.
We normally get a a dozen or so trick-or-treaters but none so far tonight. I may get to eat all the candy myself this year!
78* with brilliant sunshine here in Texas...may I ask, what the hell is this "snow" you speak of???
We expect rain tonight with temperure going down to 35. She is now bringing in some mums which are supposed to survive cold weather, but she likes their color and after all it is her place.
Predicting 28 degrees tonight in northern Arkansas. Its getting closer to "my time of year" I do for, and help anyone I can, all year long until Thanksgiving. Then everyone knows the rules till springtime. "If you are not on fire, or in a med flight helicopter, leave me alone till spring. I do not even want to hear about anyones problems. (unless it is model T or old car related). We can talk about whatever it was, next spring. I do most of my restoration work from mid November till Chickasha Swap Meet comes in the spring.
Temperature is starting to drop here now.....raining steady. Too bad the weather wasn't nicer for the little trick or treaters. Supposed to get snow overnight - guess I should put the wifes winter tires on soon.....
There's a blue norther coming here tomorrow. Supposed to be highs around 65 degrees. Brrr!
7:00am here today-37degrees, got close to 50 over the noon time, helped a buddy pour 19 yards of concrete. I have a sidewalk, patio, and a front porch to do this spring when I know the temp wont drop below 42 over night. My guess is sometime in mid-late April will be the soonest as it's to be close to a normal winter here this year. Haven't had a "normal" winter here in close to 10 years.
It's Saturday morning and it is currently 39* with freezing drizzle. I have to drive an open tractor all day today running a shuttle for about 300 folks who are attending a Halloween event. We start moving people at 8:30 am and usually run until 10:00 pm. Last weekend it was beautiful weather and they didn't have the event because of a schedule SNAFU but the weekend before they held it and it poured rain all day. The last 4 or 5 years that they have had this event it has rained and rained hard. Today they are saying we have a chance of one inch of snow.
In December I do it all over again to take guests on a winter hayride!
The thermometer outside my kitchen window shows 26º. Folks who live in the northern icebox states would consider our winters here pretty tame, but it doesn't take much to make my fingers numb and get my nose running. Time to start the countdown. 141 days to spring.
Bud, For what your getting for corn this year, burning it is saving you money!!!!
It was only slight drizzle here in Hamilton Ontario so Halloween was a big success. It started raining right afterwards. No snow yet. Hamilton is further south in Canada than many states and we miss a lot of bad weather. I can often see the storms as they barely miss my yard. It's usually warmer too. I call it "Florida North".
43 deg and sunny here in north Florida. But we'll hit 61 after lunch. Perfect day for clearing the lot next door! Only 12 pine trees left to go.
Rub it in Royce!! You're "norther" is here right now, hitting 50 mph gusts, 38 degrees. Now THATS BRRRR!!
Joe,Yup but it's not all gravey.I have to carry in corn and clean the stove every day but it's much easier and cleaner than wood.There is almost as much heat in 4 gallon of fuel oil in a bu of corn so even when corn hit 7.00 a bu we still saved money.We are burning a 80% corn 20% wood pellets mix and it works very well! We are out in the country like you so we will never see natural gas in our lifetime.Since 2006 corn has fit our lifestile very well but we still have our fuel oil furnace for back up.Good on you Joe!!!!! Bud.
Temperature here in Northern Nevada is currently 39 degrees and raining like a cow pissing on a flat rock. But it's OK I have the light buckets for the 27 coupe cleaned and painted so I'll spend the morning rebuilding lights with a kit I bought from Macs. Just me and the 2 knuckle headed dogs around the stove. Life is good. Harv
Sorry guys, the weather here in Yuma has been about 90 degrees all week with nice sunny clear skies. It gets a little bit too warm about 2;00PM till the sun goes down. Better than the rain in the Portland Or.area. It a tough life here but someone has to do it. Tom Elliott
Along about the middle of October the temperature around here rises pretty good due to all the hot air from the political ads. The gist of them is always "My incumbent opponent is a wife-beating, check-forging, coke-snorting, bribe-taking felon."
You should hear the INACCURATE ads.
Actually, they're ALL wife-beating, check-forging, coke-snorting, bribe-taking felons. We are just supposed to
pick which one looks best to our way of thinking.
I saw 3 years in AFG. Winters were sub-zero and summers clocked 150º+ in Helmand Province. Try taking a
10 mile walk in 60lbs. of gear in those temps ! Funny, but my missions always took me to the north (high elevations)
in winter (COLD) and south (HOTTER THAN HELL) in the summer. Never could understand that !
Nothing is comparably miserable to what I experienced there. Although I still hate the rain, no matter how hot
or cold it is.
To all those north of us, such as northern California, Oregon, Washington British Columbia, Alaska, I want to extend my thanks for letting a little ran come our way. First rain since about March. Our area seems to be becoming a cactus garden, as that is about the only thing left alive. Native trees are dying. Our apples are about the size of plums this year and the other fruit trees didn't produce anything. Again, Thank you.
We're celebrating the 1/4" rain we got from this storm.
Please come take this rain we're getting right now. I have a building to frame and get sealed up before the
snow flies. It is nothing but an annoyance. Thanks
It's still above freezing here by "The Frozen Tundra of Lambeau Field".... However, we've learned to adapt with a gas-fired Modine for the shop, but still don't have enough room to work.
