How's the weather?

This might end up being pointless, but I tried. A couple minutes ago it rained hard and then hail. w00t.
I gots you some pics. (Looks like snow)



Share the weather here, even though we all know (almost)everyone has snow.

It was partly sunny and 70 degrees here today. Tomorrow will be mostly sunny and about 74. I plan a long ride.

Nope, no snow, never has been snow, none forecasted until perhaps the next iceage - or beyond.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

It is supposed to be 50F tomorrow, raining, and snow up to 2-4inches in the mountains that I won't be able to see. After that the temp is going to go up.

I'm going to try that the next time I'm outside. But I don't know if I have coffee cups big enough to cover my hands and head.

Nice pics. But you need some real snow!

Thank you.

So just covering the tops is enough?

It looks valuable. How old is it? Is it yours? Does it have a name?

Looks like a relaxing, peaceful kind of yard.

I hope its all ok.

Yes.
I'm not sure how old it is maybe 9 years. It is my backyard, so I hope. No name.

I'm still online which means the ice hasn't ripped the power line down yet, but the night is young.
