    To you Wisconsinites (and Canadians) who endure -30F and below--I can't imagine. I dealt with similar temps once in a cold snap in Illinois and after a couple minutes outside, my body began to feel true pain.
    Jacksonville, Fla reported 27 degrees on Friday! A friend in Gainesville said she couldn't even sit outside at the cafe because it was in the 30's. Maybe Miami was in the 60's?

    All I know is I'm running low on firewood for this winter. I'm going to have to start tapping into next year's pile.

    Guess Farmer's Almanac was right, numbingly cold and snowy for the northeast. We definitely have that (although I am never satisfied with the amount of snow we get here - bring it on!)

    Our coldest day here was 16 with more snow than we are used to. Today it is50 when I woke up this afternoon (on graveyard shift this week). Bees were all out and flying around, no pollen for them though...

    Mid Jan. and my three hives are still hanging in there! Got my fingers crossed, hope we can make it to spring!

    I call your wimpy 42" of snow, and raise you 111" (for the season) in Erie, PA. And, boy, does my back ache!

    I think we had a light frost a couple of nights, probably 28°. During the day sometimes it's plummeted to below 75°.

    It's really bad again today, there are clouds!

    As for rain, I think we had more than normal last year, over 11".

    Snow? Oh yes there's plenty of that in the mountains where it belongs.

    Tuesday night low of 25F, Wednesday high of 65F. Currently 67F, tomorrows high 75F. The girls have been on a flow for the last week, despite the nightly lows. The next week looks to be pretty warm, lows in the 50's, highs in the 60's & 70's.
