well I'm glad I'm not the only one....

flying gravel and hurricanes don't sound so great--I'm glad you guys are okay!!!

I just looked up our weather--the highs are: Sunday, 71; Monday, 70; Tuesday, 49?!?!?!? Perhaps it'll eventually do something normal....

I know it's the south and all but 71 in January is a little ridiculous. The daffodiles (SP?) are coming up already!! I keep seeing and hearing birds like it's spring!

I just dread the snow and ice 'cause I have a lot of issues with mobility and walking in the stuff is a real problem. It's been unusually mild in SE Michigan this year, but I guess it's coming. We have a winter advisory for Sunday and Monday. All I want to do is get to work monday a.m. and back home again without falling and breaking something. I don't mind driving in it; but I'm scared silly about walking from the car to the office door.

I am on the Oregon Coast and we got snow and still have it. It's been in the 20's here the past two days, which is unusual. It gets cold during the winter here but never this cold. To see snow on our sand dunes is very strange.

jodstr, I used to live in California before I moved up here. I noticed you said south bay area, do you mean the San Jose area? I used to live the Gilroy area and work in San Jose.

I dont think its been cold enough for long enough in Chicago for the ground to freeze properly. I dont know WHAT's gonna happen to my daffodils and tulips. Ive worn my Spring & Fall jacket more this winter than Ive worn my winter coat. VERY VERY strange. And worrisome.

This fall I planted 100 daffodil bulbs and assorted lilies all over my yard -- the other day I dreamt they were all coming up!

I did hear that it is supposed to get cold this week -- maybe winter will finally come to the Northeast!

Well, I've wrestled with reality for 35 years, Doctor, and I'm happy to state I finally won out over it.

Here in Houston it was 75 yesterday, today it's going to be around 57, and tomorrow it's going to be 38. That seems crazy to me.

If by weird you mean 22 degrees and sheets of ice all over the sidewalks in Palm Springs California, then yes, we are having weird weather. You guys can't seem to get a winter and we're out here freezing our off.

Good thing climate change is just a big hoax, huh?
