    We got a good hard rain the other night, and the wind blew to beat the band. My plumb trees are completely bereft of leaves, none on the ground, and none as far as you can see. Hmmm, wonder where they went? There was even a rainbow the next day after the event, maybe the leaves went over the rainbow. The sky is ultra clear, and it's going to be about 62 today. In six weeks that weather will be perfect for several months, not that there's really anything wrong with today, which is actually quite glorious!

    Same here in N MI today. It left by 9:00 AM. Been very cold here until past couple days, now 50F...but only til tomorrow, then back in the deep freeze.

    The thawed snow did reveal great ‘rolling spots’ for my dog, allowing me the pleasure of giving her a bath before breakfast. IMG_7622.JPG IMG_7623.JPG

    You've been out there workin', too, we need to wrap you in a perfect-weather bubble!

    Was in HEB when it started snowing here in Central Texas - I smiled so big when my cashier was so excited to learn it was snowing that she left her post and ran outside!

    The winter wonderland that was our backyard is now a sloppy mudpit.

    Same. Today it is being replaced by some ice and sleet.

    We've got my favorite kind of snow right now: visible in the distance, none nearby.
    If I never even saw it in the distance.... that'd be OK. But, sunshine, blue sky, ground quickly drying from what was only rain for us -and distant white peaks.... good enough!

    Snowing here all day and in a storm warning until 11:00AM tomorrow at our altitude and higher. Beef stew is simmering and about to start my infamous 4-seed French Bread. I've got a special stash of wood in the wood shed for baking bread. Along with some Sutter Home Red Blend tonight, we will be ready for a day of skiing tomorrow right from the deck.:)

    Don't worry.

    You could be looking at freezing rain - maybe you already are.

    It is forecast for the Shelby County (TN) area at about an hour before dawn, tomorrow. My girlfriend brought her work computer home last night, and she will again tonight. Could be a good weekend for staying home and cooking a big pot of white beans. Or maybe red beans, this time.

    Picked up 3-4 inches of snow today here in central Minnesota. No big deal. Roads are pretty good. With the storm system clearing we're back in the deep freeze for the next few days with -19F predicted for tonight.

    I think we've got 2-3 inches in a lot of places around Memphis; in some cases, more. My cars are staying parked. I can handle the conditions, but I'm not driving with Memphians in ice and snow because they may or may not have any experience.

    We got a good day of road tripping/hiking in today. TN 57 was pretty much clean and dry, so we went to Big Hill Pond.

    But this evening, the precip is back and it is frozen rain, right now. The "hot" car we used today is turning the stuff to water; the other two cars are not.

    I expect a inch or more accumulation, a lot of it ice, in time for Morning Commute into Memphis. I may chauffeur my girlfriend to the office or maybe she'll work from the apartment.

    There was a fair amount of snow in the woods as we walked. It was melty and we threaded the needle between icy/slick and muddy. Bright sunlight - not bad at all. The most uniform snow coverage we saw was at golf courses; some pastures, by comparison, had burned clean of snow. One day of recreation, and now back to time spent by the fireplace.
