The weather is - stay in bed and don't go anywhere. I am doing exactly that with huge cup of tea and my cold meds from canadadrugs. I am lucky I don't have a covid but the virus I have is not pleasant either.

High of 68* in Miami today. Drove right past the Coral Castle with the windows down. Can't do that in August.

Sunny, but 45* at the house. Too cold for my bones and I believe it is the high.

Is that Piles of Debris?. Honestly, I've never been there although I've drove past it hundreds of times.
Yes, the chevy car and truck are in fact best described as "piles of debris"

A white out blizzard is the order for today. Good thing I/we don't need anything from anywhere as our road will be plugged and ya can't see to drive anyway. Pulled out a jigsaw puzzle of "Peanuts" so the wife and I have something new to fight about.

Run for the hills, or the valleys, or jump on the next SpaceX. It's going to snow.

More than 80 million Americans under winter weather alerts; thousands of flights canceled​

-32F at 6am and it's a good thing as my 30+ year old chest freezer gave up the ghost. Just took the food outside until we either get a new one or I convince the wife that she is just hoarding stuff as the family has moved out.

THE GROUNDHOG MUST DIE!!!!

Three degrees F here...brilliant sunshine. Typical mountain winter day...snowing at night, dazzling sunlight in the morning.

Only halfway through winter, and I've had more than enough.

Currently 11°F with a low of 9°F last night. Got about 6" of the white stuff... first real snow of the season. It's been a dry year.

The daylight hours are stretching out. Won't be long now until we are wishing summer wasn't gone.

Exactly, and that's the point of these secondary "holidays" - markers on the calendar.

All Saints Day, is midpoint between the fall equinox and the winter solistice. It's where the time loss starts to slow down, and cold weather settles in.

Then, Groundhog Day, the opposite.

Then May Day, where the lengthening is mostly done, and pleasant, not-yet-hot, weather becomes the norm.

August? Nothing there. Just noted as the Dog Days. Nothing dramatic in the first week, but usually in the third week, we get the first really cold nights.

Just some random thoughts...

Upper 60s all day + some rain. Thinking about Universal Studios tomorrow, but still a 50% chance of precipitation.

Here in Phoenix it’s still warm and sunny. I’ll let you know if anything changes....but it probably won’t.

Wife said early last week, "I feel like its almost spring; I think we got the last of our snow for the year."
I pointed out that we traditionally get our largest snowfalls in mid-feb.
Her, "yeah, i just dont feel like it will happen this year."
MFW, 5 days later, sunday morning at 6am on the way to a swim meet....
