    When the weather is getting hotter and hotter, I start to appreciate the snow. It's 40 deg here. What about your place?

    Laughs in Texan.

    Looking like a high of 90F here today. We're not likely to see a LOW of 68 until maybe September.

    In the northeast, we're having "April" in May. Days start in the low to mid 50s and might get to the 60s. Will be raining on and off for the next 6 or 7 days. Supposed to be a hot summer this year, so I'm not complaining.
    I don't miss the snow. We actually had a couple of inches of snow here on the first day of Spring.

    In Tucson, we're experiencing 10 to 15 degF warmer temps than "normal". We had our first 90deg day in mid-April and we had a series of 100+deg days at the beginning of this month. My lease expires at the end of the month. I thought I would stay till the end of the lease and then head north to Idaho, but now I'm thinking of forfeiting the rent I've paid and leaving early.

    We hit 86 in central Mass today. I experienced it only briefly then drove into a bunch of rain and the temperature dropped into the 70s. It's now 59 and the rain is finishing up.

    I'm enjoying this week of rain with temps in the 70s. I planted new grass a couple weeks ago, and I'm supposed to be watering it every day, so with it raining every day, I'm not complaining.

    Well, around late April I parked my truck in Rochester, NY and spent the night with my brother- and sister-in-law. It was mild when I parked, woke the next morning to snow...a week and a half later, I was home in Texas where it was low 90s.

    Still haven't had a 68F low. 95 high today.

    But it's breaking soon, and I am so ready.

    This past weekend my dad and I completely went through my snowblower. New carbureator, fuel filter, belt, bearings, oil change, and dad fixed the starter. I'm ready.

    Decades ago, 90 miles to the south, Mt. Rainier used to set world records for snow fall. Once, 1020(?) inches of snow in a year fell on the mtn. Later, 90 miles to our north, Mt Baker set the world snowfall record with 1040+ inches in a year. Some years ago, Skykomish(elevation--1100 feet), eastsoutheast of us on Highway 2, piled deep in snow. People were on their roofs shoveling snow. The problem was they could not throw the snow down into their yards. From their roofs, they had to throw the snow UPWARD, because the snow in their yards was 11+ feet deep....& not snow drifts.

    We have a flat-nosed shovel. Problem is, about the 4th shovelful, my back would give out & I'd be bedridden for the snow season. Guess that's why I got a re-tirement, so's ah ken pay one of them their young bucks ta shovel.

    The past couple years I would have willingly paid a kid to shovel my snow, but I guess kids would rather stay home and play video games now.
