It's been raining most of the day but supposed to turn to snow later on.  Calling for a couple of inches "maybe".  We often don't get the weather they call for.  We live in a little 10 mile radius "bubble". 

 

Same thing today...

It was cold this morning and then rain about midmorning. We are fixing to have a heat wave. Going to be in the 50's this weekend but with some rain. No snow think goodness. WE2,  hopefully the snow will miss you guys.

Yesterday we got about 4 inches of snow before it stopped.  Our landline went down but our internet stayed??? figure that one out because our internet goes through our landline!  Then this morning the landline worked for about an hour and then they both went down.  The tech called and said there was trouble several blocks away and fixed it there.  Still wouldn't work.  Came here and found a loose connection at the pole (even though our line is underground to the pole).  Anyway...finally got things up and running! :cele:Got somewhat warmer today so a lot of the snow melted off.  Hubby was able to get to the homestead and back safely.  The graders don't clear the side streets etc., until all the snow routes are cleared.  The highway department always keeps the state highways cleared.  We'll need to make a trip to the Roost, to "make our presence known"...pulling up into the drive and back a few times, tramping through the snow to the door and back...Make sure the furnace is on, the water is still running (we flush the toilet when we go and wait for it to refill) and make sure the lamp in the living room is on...you know the routine of a vacant house ! :)

This has been one of the warmest winters I can remember. We hover in the mid to high 40's during the day. The 10 Day forecast looks about the same. We had one week

where it was cold but that was short lived. We've had a total of about 4 inches of snow total. That didn't last long because it's so warm. Of course that didn't prevent the city snow plow from knocking my mail box sideways. If they would just slow down a little...

 

 

Ack! I don't know why that quote box popped in there. And I don't know how to make it go away. Just ignore please.  :icon19:

Spring is in the air.  I have been seeing flocks of geese flying north.  
 

40*s at night, clear skies and mid 70*s in the day.

Reached about 40 today with plenty of sunshine so a lot of the snow is melting...and leaving lots of mud!  Oh well...our state needs the water for it's wonderful lakes, streams and rivers!
