weather

Yesterday we had temps in the mid 50's and lite rain/mist.
In the late afternoon evening, it became rain, thunder, and lightning.
This morning it was 18 degrees and looked like this outside.

I was going to say I feel your pain, until I saw the pictures. No snow in South Illinois yet. It was mid 60's last night, and upper 20's at 6 this morning. But this is what we get for living in the Midwest.

Labbie, do you get much snow where you live? I would think you are almost in the banana belt there.

No snow in sight yet. But we do get quite a few storms throughout the winter. Around here we average about 36" a year.

Lloyd, we don't get as much as you and I am okay with that. Also funny you should mention the banana belt Lloyd, my neighbor planted a banana tree this year, and the next town over keeps trying to plant palm trees, for some reason those never last.

Guess winter has started in the north country. We were at 81* on Monday. Then I think that the same front that brought you the snow came through and lowered our temps. Forecast to be in the mid 40's today. We need some cool weather and some rain.

34 degrees here in the NC mountains this morning. Now it’s 42 but my wife and I are in with the flu/sinus infection. Joy Joy. At least we have a warm house and food and of course our little dogs to snuggle with.

Those two brush piles that were in my first post are now a pile of ashes.
I took advantage of the snow cover and cooler temps to get then burnt.
There was a pretty good wind and they really took off.
Could have toasted a lot of hot dogs and marshmallows.

Hard to believe, but it is snowing in College Station, Texas. About 2" accumulation so far. Won't last long. The ground isn't cold enough for it to stay around.

We’re just getting over it. It’s all over the nation apparently.

Starting to snow also here in the mountains this morning. 32 degrees. This is the view from my back living room overlooking our pond. I have a feeder up in the corner to the right for the wildlife. Turkeys and deer this morning. The other picture showing the dog house in the middle of the pond. It’s a floating platform I made and anchored in the middle for our Muscovy duck so the bobcats or coyotes can’t get him at night.

Papa-T, That looks like a domestic one. He must have escaped from the local turkey farm.
We had 6 deer in the yard yesterday morning, but Barb only got four in the picture.

Frank I don't think there is much chance of that happening.
This is the only kind of snow removal equipment I know how to operate.

AND, NO, I'm not bring it down to your place.
