We have it easy!

A few days bad in the winter, and a few bad days in the summer. If you have to live on the east coast, this works pretty well, IMO

18" of snow in Chicago this weekend.

Spring is never here soon enough.

Doesn't seem to be Wintertime here. The company that services my mowers wants to come and get mine at the end of this month.

Here's the weather forecast for us for the next week.

This has been a terrible Feb for us, mid to high 80's everyday and humid. Just once I'd like take the Vette out on the weekend with the windows down and no a/c.

Guess it could be worse and having to shovel snow & ice with blistering cold! Ah well I'm going to the beach and look at bikini's!

Mid 80's here in sunny Florida. Might be a drive to the beaches today.

Yeah, here in S. Fla. we set a new record high low Monday. The low was 75. Yesterday we set a new high at 85. I washed the Vette Monday in shorts and a t-shirt in the shade, of course, so it didn't dry and leave water spots before I could dry it down with a towel.

Spring's started here much to my and others' surprise. The tip off is that the birds sing in the AM which they don't do in winter even on warm spells. If the birds have the right of it, winter 17-18 is in our past.

You know winter is caused by climate change and people buying Chevy Volts. Imagine how cold it would be if taxpayers didn't pay $7,500 for every Volt sold.

The weatherman made a big deal about a cold front that was headed our way. He even made us wait till after the commercials to explain. Cold front to chill us down from 75 to 62!
Highest regards from El Paso, Texas.
