I have 35° here. But in a valley might be freezing. Looks like Thursday and Friday will be below freezing. 
Steady rain is done.

Well ;D :D ...Rain, snow, wind moved back in for the day. I say lake effect if we had one. Well, there is one but it's salty, Bay of Fundy. :D :D

Wind in southern N.S. is crazy too! 50mph+ gusts the trees are just dancing in the wind. It has been nice and sunny though, was raining early but cut off around 9AM

Well, all that craziness is past now, wind died down. 24F this morning. Probably a sap day. Neighbor across the road built a sugar shack last spring, but never boiled a drop yet this year. Big hobby show over there. Comments like 'oh they work so hard'. Who they comparing to? :D Moon is out with the stars. Looks like warmer temps for the next week. A little rain Thursday and maybe Monday. Take all the rain we can get after last 4 dry summers. Although we had some rain, it only rained hard for short stints up here, mostly drizzle. Yard here yesterday afternoon dried right up where I had the snow shoved off, so not super saturated by any means.

I have 28°. Should get up to 50 and sunny all day. I went for a little walk in the woods. Did not see much snow where I was. There is still some snow at the edge of the field. Same spot each year. Sun does not get at that area. The field is bare now. That rain did the snow in.

Slow and steady rain is good, had 1.25" in the rain gauge earlier in the week, along with 50 mph 
wind, sheesh, wind blows a lot lately.
One local woman was killed driving down a town rd when a very large 
Pine tree limb crashed through her windshield during the latest windstorm, tragic.
That is the second fairly local auto accident like that this past month. Another woman was impaled by a tree branch 
through the windshield but survived, freaky stuff.
Mr Bluebird showed up 2 days ago, sure sign of spring right there. Only a few patches of white left
and they are going away fast.

Well, I waited all day yesterday for the washout we were supposed to get and never came. We just had a mist hang in the air all day. Last night I went out to feed the shop stove at 9m through the mist and when I came out 2 minutes later, it was full on raining. We got about .1" yesterday, and today so far another .1". I hope it fills my water storage tank. I use a bunch cleaning a really nasty log on Tuesday thinking there was a lot more coming.
 Supposed to rain until mid-day when we go for our #2 covid shot. I'll see how I feel this afternoon when we get home. The show a blip of a chance of snow tonight, but I am ignoring it. Just weather guessers reading the numbers. AIn't gonna happen. Very slow warming trend coming in the next week. AT least the wind is backing down a little. Milling on Tuesday was rough, which is unusual for me here. Fine maple dust flying everywhere.

we went from tornados to sunburn to heavy rains to a freeze. bet a drought pops up next month.   Tennessee gets a little of every weather with zero consistency or real plan-ability.

We've had NO SNOW for weeks here, yesterday rain/drizzle all day, woke up with a little over an inch of snow this morning!

Still coming down at a pretty good clip!

Weather forecast was for an "accumulation" of snow this morning and throughout the day!

Glad to hear the bluebirds are back. We have not seem them yet. Most times wife see them before me. She is home and I am working away from home.  :(
That was a tragic accident. Just never know what a few more seconds will do for a person.
Good on the rain!!!

That’s a beautiful landscape swamp donkey, I bet it looks even better in the midst of the summer with all the colour.

Hard freeze here last night and it might have reached 30F all day. Flurries floating around all day, no storm.  I went to the woodlot, not much snow, maybe 8" left, seeing bare ground under the trees. 4" of ice on the woods road. I did some boundary maintenance along my north line getting ready to apply some new paint. I don't know where 4 hrs went though. :D
