Revised weather. As soon as I posted my last, we had a mini blizzard. Now it's a mix. Mother nature can't make-up her mind this morning.

Flawless since we got it 13 years ago, run a Natural Gas (or Propane). There is constantly a 10 year warranty promotion.

A couple of Summer ago, it ran nonstop for 98 hrs.

People lose power here in Socal frequently because of wind, heat, wildfires, etc. We've been lucky, haven't lost power here in the almost 33 years we've lived in our home except for very short periods, like an hour or so.

Gloomy, cloudy, drizzly day. 54°F right now with a high predicted to be 61.

It was -5°C (23°F) when I got home but very windy. Went for what was probably the last outing in the trail as starting tomorrow the next week is way above average and freezing. Early summer temperature on Tuesday.

Rain on its way. Just not sure if it arrives early enough to cancel the first soccer game of the season

Rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat: 32-33F every night and snow coming and going, but then some melting during the day. Probably six inches total but never that much on the ground. The forecast is for more of the same for the next few days.

Smart! Falls from seniors account for a number of admissions at the ER. I have a pair of Yaktrax™ as well when I go running. Better be safe than sorry.

It's been a wet, warm winter here in western mass.. (winter being Dec, Jan, Feb. ). Was the 3'rd warmest winter on record (missed #1 spot by only .2 degrees), and the wetest on record (over 15" of liquid preciptitation), mostly rain (only 24" of snow here).

Rain today, 40-50's (F) all next week.

My wallet thanks mother nature.
