Another day where it's 6 out. This winter may not have had the mountains of snow we had last year, but it certainly has the relentless cold.
It was cold this morning, it is going to be cold tomorrow morning, then the long term forecast actually has highs above freezing. I gave up shoveling my driveway about 3 weeks ago. I still clear the sidewalk and steps, but this winter is just getting stupid.
We didn't get the excessive snow like last winter but we got the same super cold temps with no break for weeks on end. It looks like a major thaw is headed our way. Old Man Winter appears to be winding down but is not quite out of it and I expect we'll get at least one more sucker punch snow or super cold blast in late March or early April.
Rain, rain go away . . .
I spent 8 hours on the road yesterday - and all of it was raining, sprinkling enough for wipers, or foggy/mist. Then last night a rain band came across central TX and it's been steady all morning, with 100% chance of it continuing all day. While I know we need the water, I'm tired of the cold, wet, dreary weather.*
*I know it's not as cold/way below freezing as our northern Cybs have experienced, but my southern blood is thin. Two weeks of temps in the 30's is way too much for me.
It's 35 right now and it looks like highs above freezing every day for the next 10 in the forecast......I still can't shake the feeling that Old Man Winter may have one last jab left in him.
Got a dusting of snow yesterday that still hasn't melted.
Mother Nature is drunk again... during the storm last night, some northern parts of Michigan's Lower Peninsula hit 80 degrees in the middle of the night for about an hour, while the northern section of the Upper Peninsula got a snow storm.
