@hamburgboy,
December 2010: South India was hot and humid.
January 2011: Home in California is cold compared to South India
January 2011: Florida and the Southern Caribbean was a little bit hot, with a little bit of rain, but Key West was perfect!

High temp here in Sarasota, FL was 78 deg F earlier in the afternoon, but the clouds thickened up and winds started swirling with the impending T-storm. Luckily, we 'only' had lightning and thunder and heavy rain. Up north of Tampa Bay they had some medium-sized hail and tornado warnings. And úp further north in Atlanta they're talking about possibly some snow.

@Rockhead,
I think we're having 70 degrees tomorrow in Silicon Valley; that's what I love about this area.

@cicerone imposter,
we got dumped on with about 16 inches of snow. Its a heavy, wet dense snow that will lead to much runoff when it melts . We will have a few days above freezing and then another deep freeze next week.

T-53 and counting

My employee Andy observed a cute scene as he came through the UVA hospital area early this morning when there was still some ice topped with an inch of snow. Two brawny construction workers at the Emily Couric Cancer center on either side of an elderly woman, lifting her up and carrying her across the street. Her legs kept moving despite being airborne.

Another major snow event in the upper midwest today/tomorrow and New England tomorrow/Tuesday. I saw a weather report last week that said forecasters are predicting heavy flooding again this year along the Red River Valley of North and South Dakota and throughout Minnesota and Iowa. 10-18" forecast for that area today/tomorrow.

Noticeable smoke in the air this morning. High winds and little precipitation have combined to cause numerous brush and forest fires. Most are due to trees falling over power lines but human stupidity plays a part, despite warnings about any kind of outside burning, including grills.

It is extremely dry and windy here, but no fires currently. Our temps are springlike. I expect a cold front or two before it is over, but nothing to get excited over. Potential continued drought worries me the most.

@edgarblythe,
Power just came back on after a 5 hour outage due to 50 mph winds toppling trees over power lines.
Stop lights at a major intersection a block away went down. People were amazingly cordial towards each other; carefully taking turns in keeping traffic moving.

Life ain't fair.
It was 80 degrees a week ago. The redbuds, Bradford Pears and daffodils are in bloom.
Sleet, freezing rain and snow in the forecast tonight and tomorrow.
The worst case scenario is 5 inches on my side of the Blue Ridge.
Sigh.
Or it could all be rain. A scheme dreamed up by the marketing people at Kroger to send shoppers into frantic buying.

@realjohnboy,
filled my pond today and got the pump running the fountain, will plant some flowers when the wind stops; tomatoes go in in about 1 month.

@dyslexia,
82 degrees today in Charlottesville! Short-lived, perhaps, but everything looks so green. It makes me want to try to jum up and click my heels but I probably shouldn't try that.
