I write about the weather in my blogs all the time because it drives my northern friends insane. Today is chilly, but we'll still get up to like 70. Yesterday is was 85 degrees and I have a hellacious sunburn from being out walking in this sun that past few days.

Not trying to rub it in, I promise. The scary thing is that if this is any sign of our summer to come, we won't be able to go outside in Florida this summer. We never really had a winter, the mosquitos are still biting and buzzing, the lovebugs are confused so they keep swarming, the horseflies are biting, and the gnats have NEVER taken a day off. I can assure you that this is NOT the weather I am looking forward to in January. April maybe, but not January.

So you all can pick on me when June comes I am am not allowed to take my white skin outside!

Normally winters here are cooler and damp with lows in the 40's at the worst. This year the weather has been all over the place from the low 30's one night with highs in the 50's and then into the 80's two days later and then back again. With more rainfall in the past month than we normally see in a whole year. So it's been much wetter. We had 4 days of rain last week (into the weekend) but warmer than normal for this time of year with rain (into the high 60's low 70's). Now the temp is not supposed to get above the 50's today. Plays havoc with the RAD for sure.

It has been weird and wild in southwest Missouri. Three days ago the high temp was 28 degrees. It's forecasted to be 69 tomorrow. We have been on a weather roller coaster since Thanksgiving and it doesn't show signs of being different any time soon.

I'll definitely take the roller coaster weather over 20 inches of snow, though!

I live in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. Winter here seems to last half a year. We have a REALLY short growing season making gardening a challenge. It can snow anywhere from October to June (last year we had a JUne snow)...Temps in this past week have been in the single digits. (F).....Some winters we do not see the ground all season and others have less snowfall. This year we've had a number of snowstorms but only dropping between 1-3" so it hasn't been too bad.

The winter has been long, cold and started earlier. We always get the first snowfall by Halloween (this year was on the 15 October) and we can still get snow as late as the end of May, but it melts away at least. Temperatures have been well below normal this year with windchills frequently dipping down to the low 30's and 40 (-28C (-18F) to-38C (-36 F) Daily highs no more than -22C (-8F). No warming trend so far. Yes, cold bothers RA worse then anything not my favorite time of year to tolerate especially as it lasts so long.

In southwestern Ontario, cold temperatures are pretty much the normal from November through to March. The average high is 30F and the average low is 19F. We haven't gotten a lot of snow in the past few years but we usually get a couple of good ones during the winter months, typically December and January are the snowiest although February sometimes gives us a good wallop as well.
