Here it is January 7th and I have yet to break out the winter coat this season. This morning it was 27 degrees and there is virtually no snow on the ground. How strange.

^^^I switched out clothes over the weekend and took most of the short-sleeved shirts out of the closet. It's going to be 68 degrees this weekend.

Sunny and about 40F today in NEOH today. Not bad for early January.

I just heard they're calling for massive amounts of rain (would equal 10 feet if it were snow) which will freeze later on. The power companies have lots of emergency crews on standby as we speak.

I just came here to make a post about the "10' of snow" rain storm but saw you beat me to it by a few hours. It's currently 54º here on this side of the state but I really do hope the temps suddenly drop 20º overnight so that can all turn to snow!

Massive rain storm on the way to metro Detroit could have been 10 feet of snow

We had a tornado watch yesterday right after dinner. Advised to get in our safe place.

Then this morning we had snow. While an hour north of us had snow for hours and could make snowmen, we had a dusting. Already gone. Wind chills below freezing. What a lovely day to stay indoors.

Yeah, we were in the original tornado warning area. Apparently there was a short-lived tornado that hit Joshua and produced hail in several locations. And after 70s yesterday there was snow in the area today. I didn't see any but my friend who lives in the neighborhood say he saw some, as did my son in Plano.

The predicted ice storm was nowhere near as apocalyptic as feared. At no time did we lose power.

I see folks in southern California in wearing puffy jackets, scarves, and gloves when the temps dip down into the 60s.
Given my background and where I spent most of my life, I rarely get chilly. However, this morning was a bit chilly though it was in the 50's. Plus, it had that damp chilly feel to it.

Likely in the process of getting the biggest snow of the season so far. Biggest to date occurred on . . . Halloween

It took until mid-January, but winter finally arrived. There's 9 inches of snow on the ground and it's 19 out. That's how January is supposed to be.

We only got about 5" in our neighborhood but it was very wet, very heavy, perfect packing snow and my youngest and I played in it for hours Saturday and Sunday. The snow on Saturday changed over to rain in the afternoon but it wasn't enough to really wash anything away, so that was nice. Monday morning the temps were in the single digits so we stayed inside and played games.

Yesterday, I noticed that the vehicles were covered in pollen. It made me sad because that means no more windows open until October or so again...

This morning, the wind chill was 24 degrees.

It's a strange winter, this one.

It was in the 20's this morning, chilly but great sleeping weather. I accidentally left one of the windows open last night. It was a bit brisk, but wasn't too bad. You got to love those Nordic genes.

My driveway doesn't have much of a slope to it but I managed to glide all the way from the garage down to the curb while taking the garbage out this morning. I wasn't expecting it to be icy and there were a few really slick spots on my drive to work. I'm surprised I didn't see a single car in the ditch or off the road (as opposed to yesterday when the roads were perfectly clear but there were somehow cars off the road everywhere). My kids schools were open but it looks like a lot of the districts to the north and west are closed today.
