The Weather is Wacked


When I left this morning, the weather was warm...like jacket weather warm, but the car doors were frozen and there was a thin coating of ice everywhere.  I thought it had to be 32 degrees (F) for it to freeze?  Anyway, driving was fine, but the ice had already taken out electric down the road (knocking on wood it doesn't come this way), and at the street light heading to the highway (an interesting turn to take with no working street lights).

On the way home, which really wasn't all that long later, the ice stopped and the snow started pouring (I always used to tell my husband that it cannot 'pour snow,' but now I see that he was correct, and I was completely wrong).

Now it's steady, but flurry type of snow coming down.  The fluffy, pretty kind.

But the weather's a mess.  It'll be interesting to see what the rest of the day holds.

It's been a very curious season, to be sure.  Anyone else having wacky weather this year?

  1. Well they say you can have 3 seasons in a day in Montreal - but having said that the weather IS extremely strange lately!
    Seems to be constantly breaking records of some sort - warmest day- coldest day - most snow ....BUT we're almost in March - can't believe how fast it's gone!

    1. Time goes fast. I always thought that was just a saying but it really does seem like there just aren't enough hours in the day sometimes.

      How's your contest going? I'm headed over for today's vote.

      If anyone else is interested, Suzan (from Simply Vintageous...by Suzan) is (#155). She does awesome work and this is one of my all-time favorites.

  2. The last couple of years have been curious here in Pennsylvania. Summers have been very warm which is very strange for Pennsylvania. I am not complaining mind you.... I love the HOT weather.

    Winters have been different from what I rememeber also, warmer than usual and the snow doesn't last as long.

    My Mom used to say the weather was going to switch and we were going to get more of a Southern climate in the North. I would love it if that turns to be true.

    1. As long as there aren't wretched complications that follow (though I suspect there very well could be), I'm a fan of warmer weather too.

  3. This weather is the most insane thing I've ever seen! It's like the seasons change within the same day LOL.

    1. I just went out and it was bitterly cold...hours ago I posted about it being jacket weather. Crazy.

  7. So odd! We've had strange weather here in MO as well. We've had a couple days of temps in the 60s, then the next day it'll be 30 degrees. So hard to get used to that!

    1. It's no wonder people have been so sick on and off all winter. We've gotten several letters this year to notify of us of flu going around the schools.

    1. Eek, I haven't checked our weather for next week, I guess I'd better. We have guests driving over this a'way then. I'm sure they'll look...but now I'm curious. ;)

    1. LOL, I send boots, gloves, and a hat along for the school day, even if it's too warm for them in the morning, because I know darn well that this year they might just be needed by the time recess rolls around.

    1. I think I'll Google later to see if it's like this everywhere. I'm just curious now what's going on in other parts of the world.

  14. Definitely wacky weather here; up one minute and down the next. Raining...then snowing...then sunshine; all within the same hour.

  15. In Nebraska it was in the 50s on Sunday. It snowed Monday. Tomorrow we're supposed to get a bad blizzard.

    1. Being too hot is just as miserable as being too cold. Your melting ice cream truck did make me laugh though. :)

  17. Pretty boring here in Atlanta. Last year we had an unnaturally warm winter so the 30-40 degrees temps have me shivering!

    1. Ohh, Atlanta's got good shopping!! 30-40 does seem pretty cold for that far south.

  19. Our weather is pretty whack as well. It was spring like this morning - though it's rained the past few days and everything was frozen and icy, it was still fairly warm. then the winds picked up and the snow came in and now I'm freezing! Crazy weather!

    1. It is SO cold today. I don't like it when it gets this cold. I'm getting on the 'ready for Spring' bandwagon.

  20. Well, I live in New England and we are notorious for wacky weather around here. It can be 70 degrees one day and we could have a blizzard the next. You just never know and frankly, the weather people aren't always that much help. We kind of have to play it by ear around here.

    1. My husband looked up the weather last night and it said 40-degrees for today. It's not even half that.

  21. I'd love to see the white stuff pouring down!
    My son would definitely LOVE it!

    I need to take him somewhere , where there is snow :)

    You definitely have wacky weather girl.

    Only thing here that is strange is the strong winds blowing everything down, and it seems like it's affecting quite a few states!

    1. We had some really strong winds last week, but now nothing. It's still cold. And they say another storm's coming. Just in time for the weekend. -_-

    1. I imagine the scenery is Spain is so beautiful that it makes most any crazy weather tolerable. :)

  23. The weather is crazy here, too. Sunday when we were outside playing in the snow, the boys took off their hats, and wanted to take off their coats (it was mid to high 30's, but that really is pretty darn warm for North Dakota in February). Yesterday morning when I got up to get Elliott ready for school, it was -23, not counting the windchill.

    Our weather is crazy all year long here, though. When school first started this year, I would send Elliott in jeans, and a jacket, but put shorts in his backpack, because it would be 50 degrees or less in the morning when he left for school, but 85 or warmer when school was out.
