Our weather has been unseasonably warm for this time of year.  I have a feeling it’s about to end though, they have forecast about 10 cm of snow for tonight.  I’ll be curious to hear the accident report for the roads tomorrow.

We’re being threatened with snow for tomorrow.  I’m not looking forward to it at all.

You could all come visit me.  We’ll be in the mid 50’s and mid 40s for the lows (F), or (12.2 celcius for the high and 6.6 celcius for the low) sunshine.

Around here, we’re fogged-in. We have a particular sort of fog, unique to this area, known as Tule Fog, for the tule marshes it orginates in. It’s very dense, and rises from the ground up, forming a thick white blanket. Some mornings, it’ll only be three feet thick, but it’s usually enough to be a hazard to traffic.

It gets especially bad out by Fairfield, where it is both dense and patchy. You will be driving along at night, with the stars glittering,t he moon shining, and not a care in the world.. when suddenly everything outside your windshield goes white. Fun times there.

Amusingly, on the really low/dense days, the field outside the hotel will be blanketed, and the jackrabbits that live there will hop about, making it so that all you see is little ears moving through a sea of mist..

Well, we did get our snow the other day.  However I’m not sure it’s going to last.  The temperature is forecast to go up to about 10 by mid next week.  That would be almost unheard of for this time of year and will do a wonderful job getting rid of the snow.  I’m also betting that a couple of days after that we’ll be somewhere around -20.

Here the weather is also influencing emotions, but more in the line of driving people crazy.  It’s being too variable.  One day’s lows will be far above the next day’s highs, and then it will switch right back again.  It will be a totally clear blue sky one day, then the next day it will be heavy rain or sleet.  About a third of the trees here are currently gone dormant, a third are in their Autumn phase, and a third are putting out new leaves or even flowers.  Hopefully we’ll settle into some proper Winter weather and stay with that for a good long while before too long.

And while the rain is good, it is kinda sad that it’s nearly summer and I’ve not had much opportunity to break out the summer gear.

Egad!  Yes, we need to have you out and about to be seen in those Summer shirts of yours!  Indeed!  big surprise

Ummmm. . .so you can recharge your freckles with solar power.  Yeah.  That’s why.  Yep.  cheese
