  1. Spent Wednesday night and Thursday morning dancing with my snowblower. This am it’s 19 degrees not including windchill. Calling for strong wind today so with the light, dry snow we got, I’ll probably have a do over with mostly the same snow I already fought with.

  2. I just snapped a few pics of our current snowfall – Charlie Brown flakes floating down almost obscuring the trees in the back yard. Beautiful. I missed these Michigan snowfalls while living in Minnesota. Yea!

    PS, love me some Dean Martin!

  3. I drove through 6F in the valleys this morning. Single digits in the low spots, 10-13F at higher elevation in western PA.

    The Lake Erie temperature is high for this time of the year. We’ve been blessed so far with little lake effect snows. I expect to see Buffalo, or somewhere on the south shore, get buried soon.

  4. Unseasonably warm and dry here along the front range of the rocky mountains. Those who’ve been here longer than I (13 years) say it’s not that uncommon.
