We didn't get much snow either. We're expecting some snow every day, so through the course of the week, it'll add up to about 4" of additional snow.

But it's still F'n cccold. It's expected to be about -3F Monday night.

Currently from the rest of the world.

London @ 6:30am: Partly cloudy 37F (3C)
Stockholm @ 7:30am: Fog 34F (1C)
New York city @ 1:30am: Cloudy 32F (0C)
San Francisco @ 10:30pm (still Sunday there): Partly cloudy 55F (13C)
Miami @ 1:30am: Clear 70F (21C)
Brisbane @ 4:30pm: Showers 77F (25C)
Alice Springs/Pine Gap (Australia's area 51): Sunny 93F (34C)-Currently our hottest visitor.
Kirkland Lake (Canada): Snow -11F (-24C)
Regina (Canada): Partly Cloudy -13F (-33C)-Currently our coldest visitor
Anchorage: Clear 25F (-4C)
Tokyo @ 3:30pm: Partly cloudy 50F (10C)

In Washington DC, they're expecting a coating of slippery ice, then get 6-10 inches of snow dumped on top of it. With all that ice underneath, & them not ready for much snow, everybody's vehicles will get seriously stuck.

It's an unseasonably warm 73F (23C) today. Normally it would be around 60F this time of the year.

But tomorrow we're expecting a couple of inches of snow, with a low of 21F (-6C). WTF!

They just updated the weather. Now they're saying it will get down to 18F by Tuesday night. That's a 55 F degree difference in under 2 days! It's already 30 degrees colder than last afternoon.

Everything gardeners & farmers just planted will probably get killed off.

We got snow in the middle of April!

The trees are still bare, & don't even have buds on them yet. It's a shame. Since they finished restoring the old abandonded building next door, with all the trees around my place, I usually have a fairly nice view out my windows. But  all the bare trees just look like giant dead sticks, sticking out of the ground right now.

Below, view from my windows today.

If you got snow, you should be glad the trees don't have leaves.  A year before Sandy hit, there was a snowstorm in PA and NJ in October.  The trees still had leaves on them, and the snow was a wet and heavy snow.  Many branches came down and took out power lines with them.  If the leaves had been off the trees, less snow would have stuck to the trees and the branches wouldn't have come down.

Being close to the coast, the weather was moderated and I didn't lose power, and only had a trace of snow.  But a friend about 20 miles inland lost power for a week.

There's a reason why the trees drop the leaves and start to regrow them when they do, as they have adapted to the climate.

The Canadian weather office is reporting this as the coldest April 15 in 70 years. I remember being in Niagara Falls, N.Y. for Easter with my cousin in 1969 and the Falls were mostly still frozen over and the snow was heavy on the ground. We stayed at the Holiday Inn in Niagara N.Y. and drove around to places we usually walked to because of the snow. One place that was our favourite was a Steak House called DeDario's not far from the Falls with the grill in the front window. It was not much to look at but the steak dinners, with baked potatoe, salad and dinner roll were good and cheap and so was the booze at all the local shops. We went over at least once a month back then when the drinking age in Canada was 21 and only 18 or 19 in the US.

Hey Betty,
nice view from your window, almost like a tree house. Did you ever go over and skinny dip in the neighbours pool late at night or perhaps in a cute girls bathing suit? I would do that quite often when I had my pool even though it was in full view of three or four neighbours houses. Sometimes I would have the yard lights or pool lights on as well when I was feeling really daring. I noticed some tiny buds on the Forsythia trees at mom's two weeks ago and cut some branches for my dining room table. Within a few days in the warmth they were in bloom full of yellow blossoms and then I did it with Japonica and other flowering varieties also. It looks wonderful indoors when it is bleak outside.

The trees still had leaves on them, and the snow was a wet and heavy snow.  Many branches came down and took out power lines with them.

We had one worse than that in October 2006. Snow & ice. It was so severe, that it didn't just tear off big branches, but also toppled over trees... some of them over 100 years old. It was estimated we lost almost half the trees in Western NY State. They were still chopping up & hauling away bits of trees the following July. Almost everybody lost power for weeks in 20-30 degree weather. I was lucky that I was living behind a TV station at the time, so their power got priority. I had electricity & Betty's stayed online through it all.

Interestingly, I'm one of those disaster preparedness people. So I'm more prepared for power & energy failures than most. I hadn't had a power failure since 1993. But I used to get power failures 4-5 times a year before that, so I learned to be prepared for it.

Looking at most of the trees that survived, even the ones in my back yard, one can see where large chunks of the had broken off & are missing. Many of the trees in the city are small replacement trees.

Sometimes Easter is in March. 2/3 of March is still winter anyway. I remember many St. Pats days with snow & temperatures in the 20s F, but there were a few 40s F ones too.

They haven't used that pool in a couple years. I don't know what's up with that. When it was in use, I only saw 1 older guy ever use it on a few of the hot days. Maybe their kids all grew up so don't bother with it anymore, or due to the economy, they can't afford a new liner & other maintenance on it (filter, chlorine, etc.).

I may complain about the cold & some snow, but for the first time in over a week, my breathing was good since late yesterday morning with the change in weather. Got a lot of housework & stuff done that I had fell way behind with over the past week. Confident, I decided to run out to a couple stores last night for some stuff I really needed. Ugh. I guess my breathing wasn't that good, but it needed to get done. Got a little out of breath just getting ready & bundling up for the cold outside but not too bad. Every block or so with my COPD, I had to sit on some stranger's steps to catch my breath. But I continued on & did the same to get home.

My nose was running, I was gasping for air, & coughing up goo by the time i got home. I was fine about an hour after I got home with my well filtered climate controlled air. I find I breath better when it's a bit cooler than most people like. Even as a child, I'd have difficulty breathing in high heat & humidity, but could work & play all day in the snow. Even before COPD, on the hottest humid days I'd get headaches, dizziness, & nausia... as sure sign of heat stroke.

On Sunday it got up to the 70s. But my breathing got so bad I couldn't go outside. In the evening when it got a hazy 96% humidity, with the effort of just walking across the room or going to the bathroom caused me the seriously start gasping for air. The only thing I could do was sit & lay around all day. Couldn't even breathe good enough to shower or bathe, or cook much.

The kitties loved it because I stayed in one place a lot so they could get lots of cuddling, playtime, & attention. They hate it when I'm busy & ignoring them.

Nice beautiful sunny afternoon today at 62F outside. Usually my breathing gets a little better in the afternoons, but not today so far... maybe if I spent more time inside with the filtered air again.

I see the weather peeps are goofing up again. How can they say the high will be 54F, and then in the same forecast, in the same paragraph, say it's currently 62F. That means the high today will be at least 62, not 54! Don't they check their work before they open their mouth?

Suddenly it got real dark outside in the middle of the afternoon. They're saying in might snow tonight or in the morning.
