    Started raining last night and it's still raining. Weather guesser said we passed the yearly average several weeks ago. But on the bright side you don't have to shovel rain.

    33 here this morning. High of 54 today. A 30 degree change from yesterday. It'll be back up in the 70s Thursday and stay there for a week. So say the weatherettes.

    A chilly day today, then the roller coaster goes back up -- maybe 80s by Thursday.

    Yep. 30 degree temperature shifts from day to day are a way of life here.

    We’re supposed to get some rain starting Wednesday night and ending early Friday morning. Forecast says 1” - 3” depending on location.
    Possible shallow mudslides in the local burn areas.

    So far this month we've gotten over 11 inches of rain with more on the way.
    I fervently hope Mother Nature gets all this precipitation out of her system before it's cold enough to snow!
    11 inches of rain could be up to 11 feet of snow using the 1 inch = 1 foot equation.

    24 degrees outside right now. Got a 1" dusting of snow overnight. Just enough to have to go sweep off the front walk and path off of the deck.

    I'm on the second day of my 3 days of winter. 29 this morning, 24 with the wind chill. The lows will be back in the 40s by Friday.
    This is how I handle it.

    Upper 60s for the next 10 days. It’s good because I just seeded some bare spots in the backyard. Rain forecasted for Wednesday.

    YEAH!! Ain't it grand?? This getting up with temps in the low 50's and highs of mid-60's, sucked!! Back to morning temps of 70's with highs in the 80's is good stuff. Santa has to stop and put wheels on his sleigh when he gets to this part of the world. (it is okay to talk about Santa isn't it?)

    We have a weekend weather curse going on here. Snow in the state the past two weekends and next weekend doesnt look any different other than it will be slightly colder for us and should keep the precipitation at mostly snow allowing for higher totals.

    Rain Wednesday and Thursday. I’m looking forward to it even though I work outdoors.

    This tree usually has a lot more red in it. Still beautiful even if it is a little late.

    2.75" of rain yesterday. A high of 44* today with a cold North wind. Not a speck of sunshine, just dark, grey clouds for the last
    several days.
    Weather guessers say we might see some sunshine tomorrow.

    Sunny and clear here but a bit cool.

    Fortunately the heaviest rain was SE of Austin ---- No one flooded up here. We were on pins and needles for a while.

    Well, sorry to say my sunshine was short-lived. *sigh*
    High, thin clouds moved in --- still, it is brighter than it has been.

    Will someone PLEASE turn off the wind machine! Not extremely cold, but the wind has been working hard to tear the shingles off the house
    for 2 fricking days! It just cuts thru me like a knife --- even walking 10 yards to the mailbox is like trekking to the North Pole.

    Finally --- the sun is out, no clouds, and NO WIND! A bit on the chilly side, but I can deal with that if the sun is shining.
