Since we are all obsessed (that's what my mom from AZ says about me) with the weather, thought I would start a thread so we could post what the weather is like in our neck of the woods. This winter has sure had some mild weather across the US. Yesterday I sat and admired my fish many times, it drew me outside. The pond water was 46 degrees at the surface.
This morning, the fog has rolled in, it's 31 degrees, and the moisture on my deck is ice. I'm concerned about black ice on the roads, so will be leaving for work early. Still supposed to be above normal in temps (40's for highs and 30 for lows) the next 10 days, and mostly sunshine. Who could ask for more for February? :razz:

I believe my car said it was 28 this morning, high says it will be 40.

tomorrow there is a chance of flurries, high will only be 29, but no measurable accumulation.

Couldnt ask for better weather this year, i spent all day saturday outside getting the garage cleaned up, putting tools away and getting rid of my riding lawnmower project that i was never going to finish, so that i can make room for my motorcycle project that i plan to buy this weekend. Hopefully i'll actually finish this project and can ride it this spring.

Is that kind of snowfall normal for your area .I have never seen so many flat roof houses in one place .Here all of ours mostly have a peak and pitch to allow snow to slide off and water to collect in our gutters and go to downspouts .

That kind of flat roofs are not usual for these parts. These flats were build in 60s by local chemical company, for their workers . Most of private houses have normal roofs.
Is this weather normal? I would say yes. What isnt normal is that this is first serious snow of this mild winter. 30 years ago snow would fell in November and wouldnt melt till March. But as years go by its warmer and warmer. Europe generally has been hit by snow and cold weather but my place is on edge of huge low lands and is protected by mountains.

Great mild winter here and even when it snowed it was rather mild and snow left and sunshine has been visiting for 3 days straight now. We've been outside working in shorts, weeding, playing dodge the bullets, walking at night in the full moonlight...............ah it's great to be alive isn't it?

We're heading up to 45 today. Sunny and crisp out this morning, just 31 and heavy frost now. Pretty with the sun shining off of the frost! Supposed to rain this afternoon, then possibly turning to snow after midnight. We shall see! No frost in the ground any more, so we need a good freeze yet for this winter .... which has felt anything BUT winter.

50 for the low today and 67 high. The sound of lawnmowers and the smell of fresh cut grass was everywhere. Water temp in the greenhouses was 73*.

Wow, grass being cut, that's not something I've heard or smelled for a long time! We still don't have any of the rain that was predicted to start earlier this afternoon, so I'm hoping it isn't holding back until late when the temps drop below freezing and come in snow. Wait, snow would be just fine, as long as we don't get anymore than about 6"! I'm ready for a nice pretty snow. :)

They are saying up to 3 inches here today, we will see. The last snow fall they said a trace and we got 2 inches (melted darn fast) but sure was pretty while it was here.

Woke this morning to maybe 1/4" on my deck, but none sticking anywhere else. Ground is just too warm. Looks like it is all past here, too, so that's it. Darn! I really want to see a nice snowfall. After all, I put up that snow fence. LOL Need to see if it does any good, or if I need to shift it north or south or angle it for next year. :) Good news is I'll be able to drive my car today, so truck gets to stay home once again.
