    Record heat yesterday with 35+ mph winds. It was okay.

    Today cooler but little wind - blue sky!

    Winds must have shot north straight outta California warmth. Montana was frozen, even the near part, which is good. We need that snowmelt for summer irrigation!

    I will be so bold as to edit & turn that picture, Annette. Otherwise, @valley ranch may be upset and @Nyboy might not be able to sleep, tonight.

    ;)

    It was 18°f here at home this morning.

    Hoodoo, closer to @thistlebloom , was 10°. But, that was at 8am so I think it was warming up ;).

    It was 30 days with above average temperatures and now, it ain't. This might be a little hard for the snow drops, wood hyacinth and crocus plants. And my fence paint!

    Today is supposed to be nice. 14 degrees at 6:30 when I looked at the thermometer.

    Thinking about hauling Luke over to the state park for a ride.
    Yesterday the thermometer said it was warmer than it felt, but there was a strong breeze all day.

    I drove into town and checked out the status of a few of my jobs. Looks like I can start doing a bit of cleanup and pruning next week. Now, that is probably the earliest I've ever started.
    I'm missing my winter already.

    today is almost a repeat of yesterday, snowing, just a bit colder...

    we weren't supposed to get much snow yesterday, had about six inches.

    forecast for the rest of the weekend is about three more inches.

    i don't really care much as long as there is some snow cover because it looks so much nicer with a white blanket on it out there...

    Since I'm a grizzled old-timer - I'll venture to put this over here on your thread, Thistle'.

    February 1969: "The Spokane Daily Chronicle reported that Spokane led the United States in depth of snow with 42 inches." LINK

    That was the first winter I lived here. I was burning a roll of toilet paper in a coffee can with oil under the Volvo so that I could start it. Learning to use chains, wear reasonable clothing and boots ...
