TGIF from Holland where it is about 38 degrees and cloudy with an east wind at about 6 mph. We are supposed to have rain/snow this morning changing to all rain this afternoon with an 80% chance of rain and an east wind of 5-10 mph and a high of about 41.

You enjoy your friday too, Gail, as you complete your chores at both places. At least you will, except for travel between home and the veterans home, be warm and dry. Have a great day.

Good morning, folks, onthe first day of the new year! It's about 41 degrees here in Holland with light rain. The rain is later supposed to turn to snow as the wind picks up to 25-40 mph from the west. Today's high is supposed to be about 46 this morning and then dropping. The old year went out like a lamb and the new one is coming in like a lion!

Happy new year to you too, Gail. This would be a good day to spend indoors and warm!

Good morning. Well, 2012 is turning out to be as busy as 2011. At least I'm staying out of trouble.

Have a good day.

I'm in a different state, but our weather sounds similar. It was VERY windy yesterday but is finally subsiding. It was also in the lower 70's yesterday, and has not dropped to the upper 40's. It's been a great winter, but we're in a drought here.
May your day be blessed
We have been quite windy the last couple days and will remain fairly windy today. The temperature should warm up tomorrow into the lower 50s and sunday into the upper 50s. Spring is nearing.

I believe we were in the 60's yesterday, not long ago we were in the 70's. Strange winter. First time in my entire life I did not have to drive or walk in snow or ice, not once. Which makes chores and getting to them much more possible.
Our weather sounds like yours right now and the wind is subsiding. This is a tornado belt but the long-lasting straight winds can be even worse. We're also known to get much ice in the winter. Not ONCE all winter. Kind of dry, but can't have everything. lol
I live in the Midwest, more mid and West than you.
TGIF! Have a GREAT one!
I definitely know what you are saying about straight line winds. The last tornado my area has seen was in the 50s but we have had similar damage from straight line winds quite a few times. As for ice, we haven't had much of that but we also haven't come anywhere near our usual snow accumulation. Have a great weekend.

Hello again!!
We had high in the low to mid 80's Saturday. What was more amazing was a low of only 61° in March. Amazing.
Have a great day!!
We reached the upper 70s here (almost 80) yesterday and the forecast calls for at least a couple more warm days before temps drop closer to normal although still warmer than normal. Even our lows have been higher than our normal highs! You have a great day too.

It's been raining here the last 2+ days, and much cooler. March showers for the flowers.
We should be seeing some rain here too, over the next couple days, coupled with cooler temps although still remaining above normal for this time of year. Fruit growers are becoming quite nervous here over the warm weather which is beginning to trigger budding of their trees and bushes which could lead to catastrophic damage to their crop if we get a freeze later, which is still possible. Also, our Tulip festival is facing the possibility of the tulips being completely bloomed out by the time the festival begins.

The last 3 days have been cool and drizzly. We've had years throughout my life where we had a pre-spring and things began budding and then we'd get a really cold snap with ice or snow that devastated much because of the early growth. Hope that doesn't happen. It hasn't gotten below the 50's here. I don't seen it happening, but I saw it snow on Memorial Day here before, so anything is possible in our world.
Have a great one my friend!! I pray your tulip festival is successful.
Our long range forecast is similar to what you have been experiencing. I have seen the same over the years with the occasional year that has hammered the fruit growers. So far, the Tulip Festival looks like it may turn out devcent despite the very real possibility of the tulips being bloomed out. People already have their reservations made and appear to be prepared to come regardless. I remember one year when I was a child that my dad got his 8mm movie camera out and filmed the snow storm we were having in mid April. It does happen.
You have a great one too!
