Wednesday Weather Report #197 - 2/24/21

We had a training at the fire hall over the weekend and there was a lot of talk about how much ice was on everyone's houses this year.

I whole heartedly agree!! It's a little hard to see but the icicle on the upper left is particularly long and lethal. The weather has been warm today (and it's now raining. BOOO!) so it will be interesting to see what has happened to the ice when I get home tonight. I'm just hoping that the ice doesn't pull down the gutters again this year but I'm thankful that my brother will help me fix them again when it happens.

BTW - the ice photo was taken after the training Sunday Morning - isn't that sky gorgeous??!!

I noticed this foxy guy/gal loping along the rode on the ride to work this morning. I would have loved a better photo but I was stopped in the middle of the road and the car behind me might not have appreciated stopping as well. 

The snow drifts in this area are quite deceiving. Luckily those trees have stopped most of the snow blowing into the road versus some areas where the drifts must be 8 feet tall and can be quite dangerous when the wind is blowing snow over top of them. The areas with the tallest drifts happen to be farm fields that have snow fence in them. I would hate to see how bad the drifts are without the fencing.

Feline Friday - 2/19/21

I put myself in Kitty Jail by flipping the laundry basket off the bin it lives on top of.

I've now done did it three times =^..^=

I'm not telling why I've put myself into jail but it does make Momma laugh!!

Wednesday Weather Report #196 - 2/17/21

I guess there's not much to share today as this has sat open on my laptop all day, waiting for inspiration. 

It's cold, as it should be in February. The big storm for President's Day wasn't much of anything and the storm for this coming weekend appears to have little snow in store for us.

Weather nerd alert - skip the next part if you're not feeling nerdy...

I take it back about nothing to share. I just updated my spreadsheet with the temps for the last 3 years and so far this February is running about 8 degrees colder than the previous years with a narrow range of temperatures. This year's high has been 35 compared to 70 back in 2018 and this year's low is 15 compared to 10 or 11 the last three years.

The forecast is showing temps in the 30s for the rest of the month so while we won't be beating "my" records, we may end with a more normal average temp for the month. Only time will tell...
