    Thank goodness is snowed overnight or I wouldn't have realized how lucky I am to live in western PA in the middle of GD April. :mad:

    80 degrees + just 3 days ago. Sitting at 29 degrees out there now with a fresh dusting of snow.

    We've had below normal temps for over 3 weeks. After last weekends foot of snow we are expecting another 1-3" tomorrow. It is March 48th.

    FINALLY!! The wind has dropped in velocity to roughly five m.p.h.!! It has been a grueling week and an half with the high winds. No fun at all in working outside or trying to ride my bike. Woke up this morning to temp of sixty degrees and bright sunny skies. Grabbing a snack and then a bike ride, the first in nearly two weeks.

    Hoping it stays relatively calm with the wind for a few days so I can get more miles in.

    I'm with you, Whizzer, about the wind. It has been vicious around here, too. Makes a short walk to the mailbox an adventure. Can't work outside
    because I don't like getting battered by the wind.

    67 here right now, 10:30 AM, clear skies, calm wind, excellent beeyouteefull day (here in Central Florida) :D Yesterday was great as well.

    Totally out of the ordinary, considering last Saturday afternoon we were at 89 degrees. :idunno:, but I'll take it when we can get it.

    I was reading the thread on NASCAr forum about the tire changer who didn't miss a beat when the tire was taken out of his hands by another car. TRL mentioned they had to readjust to the timing with the new air guns to prevent loose lug nuts. It reminded me of when I first began riding a bike for exercise, this who had been long established riders advised to develop a cadence in pedal rotation and as I got stronger, the speed pedaling would increase. I got to sixty revolutions per minute, and now, whenever I want to rest at slow speed, find it impossible to recalibrate my pedal rotation speed. I still want to maintain sixty revs per minute.

    The end result is, when I want to rest, I simply stop and take a break and when I get back riding, I'm back in sixty revs per minute. Slow by some standards but it fits me fine. Trying to break the cadence is trying to teach an old dog new tricks.:D

    A nice evening out back by the campfire. Probably in the upper 40's but all's good.

    It looks like Kansas might finally end our record chasing tornado drought. The statewide record for the latest tornado is May 28th. Next week is still a ways away, but Tuesday and Wednesday look like our first shot at severe storms this year.

    Snowed two days ago, mowed yesterday. A weird month indeed. Didn't take long into the mowing process yesterday to find out that I'm going to have to do some mower repairs. Ordered parts this morning that should be here Thursday. Like they say, Nothing Runs Like A Deere..... Well, after you order and install parts anyway.

    I know the feeling, dpk. Had to get a new battery for my big mower before I could tackle the weeds this year.

    We're supposed to hit the mid 70's today. Suns out and not a cloud in the sky. Days like this are awesome! Gonna get things done.

    Typical Month of May here. Low in the low to mid 60s highs in the low to mid 80s. It's been like that for two or three weeks now.

    Looks like the Kansas tornado drought ended today in a big way. Tomorrow should be our big day here in Wichita. For now, they have placed the moderate threat well to the North of us, but we'll see how things line up come tomorrow.

    What a day! Internet went out about 9 AM. Thunderstorm moved thru just after 10 AM, knocked out power for 2.5 hours. Finally got lights back, but 'net didn't come back until just now -- 7 PM. 10 hours without computer makes one weak.
    Land line phone has been dead since some time after 10 AM, also. Can't get hold of repair and I don't want to sit on hold forever.
    Heavy, heavy rain --- poured almost 2 inches out of the rain gauge.
    It's all soaked in, too. Not a puddle left.

    70 degrees outside. I’m sitting outdoors next to the fire. Fat belly full of ribs and corn on the cob, cold beer. Looking forward to work tomorrow.

    Lows in the low 70s highs in the upper 80s. Last week we finally started getting our daily 50% rain chance which is normal. We went over 4 weeks without a drop and that's a long drought for us this time of year.

    It rains every day now and we sure do need it. The visitors complain because beach weather is unpredictable but locals know we need to replenish the water supply. Temps are good, the raint welcome and what a neat thing to go outside at seven a.m. and listen to the birds singing.

    Sure wish I could. Weather guessers are saying 104 -- 106 for the next week.
    I may have a heart attack over my next light bill.
