Rained hard from Friday afternoon through the night and was a steady drizzle Saturday morning. It was in the low 40's. We did some shopping in the morning and when we got home the rain had pretty much stopped, I skidded up one log and it still wasn't raining, so I opened up the mil and got into it. Of course as I got to the edging and finishing the rain became steady again and I was slowly getting soaked so I closed up and it rained  through the evening. Temp held steady in the mid 40's. They predicted more rain today, but the radar is clean and they took it off the forecast. It's 41 now and supposed to stay in the high 30's low 40's through the day. Here's hoping.

I was all set to skid some wood I sheared yesterday cause my house thermomator said only -6F at 5am. Then local news comes on & says -20's up north of me. I went & checked my Hoopdee thermo,it say -29F. I then dug my house sending units out of the snow that's near my porch. And it's been dropping since,-26F last I looked So on to Plan B. Cut firewood. Saw's easier to warmup then a Skidder.

Stayed in the mid 30s here all day. Some sun, some clouds. A pretty fair wind all day. It's 31 and the wind chill is 18. Fair and bright tomorrow

Weird day. It stayed steady at around 40 until 2:30 when it slowly started dropping to 33 now, we had wind some up in the 30mph range or more, we had to sun poke through once in a while, then we got snow flurries here and there. A little bit of everything but rain. Oh yeah, and we have mud now too. I wish it would freeze back up. The skidding is rough. ;D

Ended up with 14 inches of snow this morning. High temp today was 12 with a NW wind from someplace mighty cold. Don't get much else down around the farm when half the day is spent plowing everything out and the rest is spent feeding/watering cattle and tending the wood stove.

Well in a strange diversion from swampdonkey's weather we are at 25 this morning and dead calm wind. We are expecting snow overnight turning to sleet freezing rain during the day tomorrow...maybe. 2-5 inches, enough to be annoying. Down in the city, 90 miles to our south they expect freezing rain throughout. I have shop work for the evenings, so I am OK, but I hate wasting time on snow, and it covers my wood stack, so more work. Oh well, it's winter. :) Happy Monday everyone.

Our wind here has slowed a bit, and I expect it to drop with the sun tonight. That means cold if the predicted 5F is accurate and it is not going to cloud up until tomorrow.

It was 22F here at midnight, but dropped there after.
Move'n on.

When son and I tromped thru our trees yesterday, we were walking in right around 24 inches of snow on the ground there.

  A lull in the weather this week with little to no action.  Good-we need cold stuff to freeze the soaking-wet ground under the snow as best as possible.  I have a crew doing much cut-stump work in a woods we are restoring here in this town.  They are cutting buckthorn and non-native exotic honeysuckles and treating the stumps with herbicide.  Colder is the best answer for these guys.  On a "warm" day, say 38 degreesF, their Carhartt pants are soaked up past their knees.  On cold days, they can work and stay warm and dry.

Really no snow on the ground. Some in places in the works. I have 20 and still a wind blowing out there. Blew all day yesterday too.

Suppose to be down below 10F tonight. But the snow has been called off for the next week, just snow showers. ;D And that wind is suppose to whistle through again. We've had about a foot less of snow this year than last. Look'n like one of them ice and rain winters so far. Winter is weird with brown grass and weeds everywhere. ;) :D Starry night here.

Got one of them new fangled Smart TV's for ma today. They got more connections than a computer these days. Well, they are computers. More and more stuff integrated into them. One wonders what's next. :D

Cold and with a good stiff breeze all day. Snow coming tomorrow, anywhere from a dusting to 4in for me here depending who you listen to, more for the southern part of the state. Then colder than a well drillers coveralls for 2 or 3 days after that

Well looks like I got my wish, sort of. I Looked at the 6 day forecast today and it is not supposed to break the freezing mark in the foreseeable future. We are marked to get 3-7" of snow tomorrow, which I consider and annoyance snowfall, but whatever. I'll just waste time plowing again. I am glad the mud is hardening up because I am tired of slipping in the mud around the mill. Steady cold for sure but that is easier to adjust to than the up and down freeze and thaw nonsense.
I think this snow will slide south of TheCfarm and SwampDonkey, but there will be some up in Bargemonkey territory. For sure the whole northeast looks to be pretty cool in the coming week.
