We had a backwards February. The first half was ridiculously, record-breakingly warm, and now it's back to what it should've been on Feb 1, and looks to stay that way for awhile. The swing just happened last night, and since I had warning, I tossed an old blanket and a towel over my car front/rear windshields (we barely fit Mrs. Puppet's car in the garage, the rest being filled with useless shit). This morning, both were loaded with -- snow, it seemed like. If I'd had time, I could've shaken them both into a container and made a light, fluffy snowball to throw at Li'l Puppet to wake her up.

I've got to make more time for the important things in the morning.

It's -4C and practically a blizzard. Never seen snow like this in the 14 years I've been in the UK. It's almost like being home :hyper:

We have both wood burners on :fire2::fire2:

Here's a little video of our back garden, the poor chickens barely left the coup today, can't really blame them.

After a few days of light snow with sunny spells in between - "is this all you've got?" kind of weather - we now have Weather. It's still not too deep around here, and only the side roads (like mine :brooding:) are difficult to drive on. But ...

London Paddington station is closed!

Geneva airport is closed and Neuchatel train station (also Switzerland) is closed. And Switzerland probably has better snow preparations than little old England.

Hundreds of people have been trapped overnight in their cars (well, not literally in their cars, just not able to move their cars) on the M80 motorway in Scotland.

And now ... the whole of Ireland is closed!
Quote:
Ireland is facing total shut down from 4pm today with a red weather alert extended to all counties in Ireland by Met Eireann. Snow, ice and winds of up to 100kmph are expected later today.

People have been told to make sure they are indoors from 4pm today until to 3pm tomorrow as Storm Emma moves its way up from the south of the country compounded already severe weather.

Record-breaking cold here, apparently both 28 February and 1 March were never as cold (as far as measurements go), plus strong winds making it even colder. No snow though.

So ... The Weather Channel app gives me two "severe alerts":

1) Potential disruption due to snow and ice from Friday 08:00 CET until Friday 23:00 CET
2) Potential disruption due to extreme high temperatures from Friday 11:00 CET until Friday 23:00 CET

:freakout:

Sunny and 60F today in NE Oklahoma, hardly any wind, a really nice day, which I did not get to enjoy much because of my sister.

It snowed last weekend and our whole family was almost crushed in a pileup on the interstate, but I drove through and got going again before the people behind us started going in the ditches. We had a warm up this week. It was 60 Wednesday, 77 yesterday, 81 today and now cooling off 20 degrees in then next hour or so, then 44 tomorrow, 34 and snow on Sunday. Chance of severe thunderstorms or tornados during the transition.

I hate the weather this year.

A line of violent thunderstorms passed by with barely a sprinkle at Rancho Pobrecito yesterday evening. Freeze warning tonight.

It rained a bit last night, so I checked this morning to make sure the Li'l Puppet wouldn't be walking to school in the rain. It was only partly cloudy, with plenty of blue sky. She made it just fine, but halfway to work, only about 10 miles, it started hailing like a sonofabitch. Luckily it was p. small, but for about the next 5-10 minutes it sounded like I was driving under an avalanche.

We had (and are still on the tail end of) a crazy windstorm. There were branches flying offa trees banging against the back of the house, the windows were rattling, the dogs were panicking, and then, the power went out for a couple hours. So I checked the outage status on my phone* and they were like, "Yeah. Power outages everywhere. Stop telling us about it all the time."

Part of the roof flew off the Center for the Performing Arts and nailed a pickup truck. A bunch of wooden furniture blew across I-25. The mailman came over after his route and said he'd watched one tree fall and land on a house and another take out a mailbox, which he took a picture of to prove it wasn't just a super-powerful mail delivery. Then the door of some business blew shut and banged up his leg.

* And just yesterday, there was a lady who was having an emergency, so I gave her one of the cheap portable chargers I always try to have on me, so I was down one charger. I didn't end up needing it, but I do need to replenish, because sometimes our power goes out for pretty good stretches. Also, I kind of like having an extra loaded charger I can just hand out to ladies having emergencies, you know? :cheesywink:

This spring is pissing me right off. It's finally getting here but I'm still pissed, like when a date shows up late and you know they weren't doing anything special.

This April has been hell on trees. The heavy wet snow from two Noreasters bent trees so bad even a lot of healthy trees snapped right off, anywhere from ground level to halfway up, to up in the crowns. Some stands of forest literally look like artillery went off in there, assuming the rounds were all set for airburst rather than point detonation, which they are when shelling forests. Trees down every which way, or heavily damaged with limbs snapped off all over. The ground has been very saturated, and high winds have been over abundant, so there are also a lot of plain old blow downs.

Between tropical storms, derechos and noreasters, the trees have really been taking a beating over the last decade or two. I drive a lot so I see certain forested areas getting more and more damaged. Wish I had time to stop and photo document, but shit, there must be someone already doing that. I'm aware that mature forests eventually topple over, and I have seen mature forests all my life, but never toppling at this rate.
