ONe week a year ain't bad though. Especially when it feels like 29 at home.
That reminds me of when I was stationed in Homestead Florida. I arrived in a short sleeved Hawaiian styled shirt ( It was late 1970's) it was 70° and everybody patrolling on base had heavy jackets on. I couldn't understand it until a year later when I got acclimated.
32° and comfortable here in Boston.
I've been back home in SoCal for 13 years, and still haven't turned back into a weather native. I don't consider 65° freezing. When I go to the Rose Parade, I'm not bundled from head to toe in a parka, earmuffs, gloves, hat, scarf, etc. I don't turn the heater on all 'winter.' I roll my eyes at my fellow natives, the weather wimps.
By the way, my father-in-law lived in Homestead for a few years before he died. He told me about its rebuilding after it was literally wiped off the face of the Earth by that hurricane. People's resilience is amazing!
For the first time in 15 years, Mystic Lake in Riverside County, is full!
Thank you Mother Nature for blessing California with all the wonderful rain we've had. Keep it coming!
Feels like freezing but that's just the drizzle.
Spring has sprung.
The trees are blooming!
Yesterday was absolutely beautiful with the temps in the seventies and a gentle breeze. Today the temps are much the same but the wind is back. 20 mph or so with gusts near 30.
The little guys will have to keep a firm grip on the ol' Easter basket today.
Had my annual visit with nurse wellness, today. You know the one where they try to determine if you're getting senile and all. Well, one question she asked me was, "Do you know what season it is?" I asked her what time it was. She asked why?
I told her that this being South, by God, Carolina that it was spring this morning (50° when I left home), but it'll be summer this afternoon. (It's now 89° sitting out on the front porch.)
I'm not sure I passed, or not, but she said she was skipping the rest of the questions.
Foggy one minute, rain the next, sunshine, a gentle breeze every so often.
By the tickle in my nose, the burning in my throat and the sensation of ground glass in my eyes, I can tell it's Spring. (stupid pollen )
We've had some lovely weather recently. Sunny, 70's and breezy. Perfect for spreading around those allergens.
Tomorrow they are calling for storms which will make of the 8th consecutive Friday we've has significant rain. Time to buy stock in Zertec and Allegra!
High pollen alert in my area as well. Fortunately I'm only mildly affected. The rest of my family... not so lucky. It is one of those banner spring days with the temps in the low seventies and lots of sunshine.
Spring is over. Supposed to be 90 today in the high desert
High pollen makes my nose bleed. At least half of the time, I am indoors.
They're ALWAYS blooming here! Only my mulberry trees lose their leaves in 'winter;' everything else is business as usual.
It's getting warmer everyday.
12th consecutive Friday with rain. More in the forecast for Sunday and Monday.
89 degrees and sunny in Florida today!
On vacation and dreading flying back to Michigan tomorrow....
Damn. If you'd like to send some our way, we'd be happy to take it off your hands!
I thought the snow pack had you covered for a while.
Oh, it does--and then some! For virtually all of California, Southern California, Los Angeles...but apparently not a specific one of its suburbs...mine, Arcadia. I posted our new watering restrictions in the "Good news, bad news" thread recently. So I'll happily take your rain!
What's your email address? I'll send it as an attachment.
Still cold but spring-like cold.
