60 F and raining here. But the Alberta Clipper is coming tomorrow, and it should pick up some snow as it howls across Lake Michigan.

Please keep it when it gets there. I'm pretty sure I've permanently lost feeling on the tip of my nose this week.

Same story here in Oklahoma. Earlier in the week it was up to the 70s during the day. Yesterday morning my ride to class was dry and about 55F. My ride to work in the afternoon was wet and about 32F. Today it's a little under 20F, and snowing. The water from the rain yesterday has frozen on the roads. Oh yeah, it has been windy since yesterday.

Today work was canceled and class was canceled. I still went for a ride around the neighborhood on my mountain bike though. I have a feeling class will be canceled again tomorrow.

It's probably just temporary until you fully defrost...in July. Besides, what do you need to feel with the tip of your nose anyway?
