Yesterday afternoon it was 55° and sunny, and almost all of the snow and ice had melted off. Currently it is sitting at -6°, overcast with the potential for more snow on top of the 2-3" already on the ground.

 

I gave up living on the Texas coast for this? I think that I need to have my head checked...

You've had it bad this winter. We've barely had winter here this year. The bugs are going to be horrible this summer.

Thankfully, I don't expect the bugs to be bad here this summer. They don't really like flying about in a solid pine smoke haze.

Same here. 

 

That said, we usually pick up at least one monster nor'easter tracking to the south of us in the next 6 or 7 weeks that dumps 4 or more feet in one fell swoop. So far they've all tracked to the north leading to mostly rain/ice pellets.

I'd rather have the snow and frigid temps than wildfires, actually. I'm keeping my fingers crossed it's not as bad out here in the West for all of us as it has been the past few years.

I think it's only been briefly below freezing for maybe 4-5 days in December here. A client of mine living about a mile from me said she already saw mosquitoes in her yard last week.

Twice when I visited it was clear during the summer. Every year that I have lived here (since 2011 or 2012), and about 6 other times visiting it has been like being inside of a fireplace.

 

I have grown to accept that it is miserable year round here, either due to cold, or insufferable heat (and I never have been bothered by South Texas heat, not even doing manual labor in 117+), or smoke. I would love to be wrong, but I always predict getting the brunt end of the smoke from forest fires annually.

No, it's some sort of infected salivary gland. Very strange.

It's been 34 and raining here all day.  A completely miserable day to be driving around DFW visiting customers.

75 here today. 70-mofoing-5. 35 tonight, though, and a bit of snow tomorrow. People were like sailors on shore leave today or prisoners on a Dukakis work furlough program.

Please tell it to take the Mass Turnpike West a few thousand miles. It is currently 20 here. They are calling for -2 tonight.

He's still alive!

 

But this guy is the greatest work furlough recipient of all time:

The Arctic is unbelievably warm at the moment. 45 to 60 degrees (F) above average. The North Pole, where the sun has been down for months and won't rise again till next month, has gone and will go above freezing at times this week. Something has broken the old wall of high pressure that used to isolate arctic air and keep it in place up there.

 

Some of the displaced arctic air is down by me for the next while, but not too bad...mid teens to hi 20s. Colder than average but only by a few degrees. And polar air is reasonably dry and won't cause too much snow. Flurries mainly.
