How's your weather?

Postby Gherkin » Fri Apr 12, 2013 5:10 pm

On the news tonight, in the Chicago viewing area, the weatherman said that we've only had one day this year over 65 degrees. By this date in 2012 we'd had 20 days over 65 degrees. :x

Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?

It's wet and soggy, no sign of froggies,
And nothing green to mow.
Without good sanitation you won't be around long enough to use your preps.

Upstate NY, snow, sleet, freezing rain, certainly spring weather for these parts. If you are traveling, take it slow. Careful all.

last year's early heat was not normal, this year is more like out 'regular' aprils....volatile, wet, one day nice and a blizzard the next....tornado season at its messiest!
New laws are like new taxes....both evolve, but they never go away.

It's been about 10-15 degrees below average for the most part for the last month here in Vt. Normal temps coming later this week. Good, I've got 180 apple trees to plant this week! I hope everyone has a better growing season this year!

A bit of snow yesterday, a touch of sun today, and a major storm coiming in from the north for tonight and tomorrow. Looking at 8 to 14 inchs of snow.

Sadly, I must be on the same parallel as Freeman... In the wastelands of north Wisconsin we don't have "weather' like you all do... We have snow storms with occasional snow flurries. 27" ice on the lakes and a whole lotta snow on the ground yet... On a happy note, it does appear to have hit 40 degree's positive for once... :clap:

Rain? What's that?

Good question! I'm not sure, either.

As to our weather, it's been all over the map, temperature wise. Warm a couple of weeks ago, cold last week, warm again this week, but all of it BONE DRY!

mid 50f during the day, high 30s to mid 40s over night presently. Should be warming up in the southern part of Illinois quick!

Jeez, now it's too hot! We're in the mid 80s today. Last week I was freezing without the heat on.

We'll be keeping a close eye on the weather, hot/cold in the spring brings nasty storms. But my peas did not wash away with the fierce rain we had two weeks ago. I see little green shoots starting to come up. The starter flats got to come out of the basement today and enjoy a little sunshine of their own. The dandelions have shown up with a POP!

The dogs are out baking in the heat of the sun, can't understand how they love that so.
