    We've got low 40's up here in the great white north,,,,,and it is white, about 12" of it on the ground. :(
    Too cold to wash the Dakota outside but I did take it through the automatic car wash over at Kwik-Trip Saturday morning. Does a decent job for $10 and the underbody flush feels like it's going to blow through the floor it's got so much pressure, LOL!

    On Halloween it was about 10 degrees and snowing, Thanksgiving day I don't think it even got up to 10 degrees. Christmas morning at 6am it was 33 degrees and raining (drizzle). What the????????????? Not a complaint by the way. :D
    Melt, melt, melt. Yes I know, this warm (mid 30's to low 40's highs) won't last forever but while it's here, it's great!

    Here's something you don't see everyday. It's sunny and clear, not a cloud to be seen and,,,,,,,,,,,,,it's snowing. What the?:eek:

    I suppose anything is possible around here. Last Wednesday the high was 9 degrees, then Thursday it was 36 and raining and this morning at 9am, there is no temperature, it's zero. Must be that climate change thing. Oh wait, I know what it is, it's WINTER.:D

    Friday afternoon we had freezing temps:
    frozen ice pellets
    small hail
    sleet
    snow
    rain
    and sunshine with 40 degree weather by the afternoon.

    Saturday was 60's
    Monday night is now 28 degrees
    in 48 hours it will be 70 degrees.

    I need to order more propane.
    And someone needs to remind my dogs that I want to sleep in at least 1 time while its cold... no luck so far.

    About the same here. Another couple inches tomorrow, then another couple inches or more Thursday, maybe more Saturday and then,,,,,,,,,,it gets really bleeping cold again, like single digit highs. That's measured as "F", not "C".:(:(:(:(:(:(

    Bleeping BRRRRRRRRRR! About 25 years ago we had a 2 week stretch about this time of year where the WARMEST day was -20 and we had lows of below -40 at night. A couple days it barely got "up" to -30 and with the NW wind , I don't even remember what the windchill was. After 14 days of that, all of a sudden it got up to zero and oddly, it felt warm.:eek:
    Snow, snow, efing snow. Forecast another inch or so tonight and then Friday night, "several inches" are predicted. What exactly they mean by several is unknown at this time. No matter what it is, I'm pretty sure it's going to suck, especially when it's single digits highs this weekend.:(

    The weather man lied. I think they do it on purpose. The 2-4 inches we were told we were going to get turned into over 8 inches. Now we have a high wind warning for tonight with "DAMAGING WINDS" and another 4 inches of snow.

    Weathermen don't lie, they are just wrong a lot. Its really bad in Calgary because of the patterns getting jumbled up as they come through the Rockies, making the weather even more unpredictable than in other locales.

    Being a weatherman is one of the few occupations in which you can be wrong almost all the time and still keep your job (stock broker is another such occupation).

    Been in the low, 20s and sunny nearly all day. Kind of day were, you can cruise with your windows down and the heater on and the sun can make you crack a sweat from shining through the windows.
    Supposed to snow tomorrow afternoon into Saturday.

    It started around 6:30pm here and hasn't stopped yet.:( I estimate 8" so far and it's coming down very light now. Need to get it all cleared away this morning because it's calm and 20 degrees but this afternoon it's going to start dropping, going below zero by evening and, the wind is going to come in after noon out of the NW at 25-30 mph, gusting to 40. It's going to be all kinds of suck outside later on. Not that it doesn't suck now, it's going to get worse.:( Can you say blowing and drifting snow? Sure, I knew you could.

    Looks like all our snow is done with as of last night. Temperatures for the next week day or night are supposed to be between 41 to 46 degrees. Now we are under a localized flood warning due to rapidly melting snow pack.

    Got all the snow (it was about 8") blown and shoveled. In the 2 1/2 hours I was out there, I could feel it getting colder. It's down to 18 now and headed to -10 or colder tonight and a blistering high of 8 tomorrow, along with the 30 mph wind that's on it's way later today and continuing Sunday. Geez, I can't wait.:(

    One thing I did notice early this morning, with all the new snow and most roads not plowed yet, there was next to no traffic on the freeway and the very few vehicles were going maybe 30 mph, and the snow muffled all the tire noise, it was SO quiet outside! I forget how much racket there is from that friggin' freeway (8-lanes 150 yards from my front door next to the 2nd busiest interchange in the metro area) day and night, every day, never ending, non stop NOISE, NOISE, RACKET, NOISE (aaaarrrggggghhh) until,,,,,,,,,,,it's not there. Dang it's nice! I have to move.............:cool:

    Is it summer yet?:D
