Yesterday it was 75 degrees here.

Now it's 27 degrees. Sleet and Ice are covering everything and we're expecting 6-8 inches of snow in the next 24 hours...

Pictures in the morning....

We actually had a few light patches of frost on my front yard this morning! I hate freezing in CA! Thats it, gotta get this house sold and get outta here! Course where we want to go is much worse. Well, where my WIFE wants to go. I like it here myself.

When I went to work this AM at 0500 it was 68 - by 1400 it was 34...

We already have 1/4" inch of ice and it is still coming down... Forecast is for 6-12" inches of snow on top of the ice tomorrow.

This sucks!

When i came in yesterday morning, it was 70 and it warmed up to 82. This morning, with the wind howling out of the north, it was 37. And that sounds like that's going to be the high for the day.

Angry It's heading my way now

It was 62 when I rode in this morning, and the temp will be dropping all day. Everyone here at work thinks I'm nuts for riding, but the slick stuff isn't suppose to get here until after 6pm so I should be OK. I got cought in the snow 1 time Biloxi, MS of all places, not fun at all.

Tomorrow will undoubtedly be another snow day...

That weather has arrived in Ohio. 65 on the way home last night. Tornado warning in my area is on right now, until noon. It's December 1st -- tornadoes?

High-wind warnings (60mph) this afternoon, snow showers tonight, with a high of 29 on Sunday. We've had fabulous temps for several days and now Old Man Winter won't be denied.

Out fishing on a boat in Rockport for the past couple of days. When we left yesterday morning at 0800 it was 75. Driving north to San Antonio dropped it to 37. Guess who was in a t-shirt and shorts with sandals?

All I could think about was hypothectical guy who rode his Harley to Corpus in tshirt and jeans and then had to ride home.

Yeppir, would have been a lose a finger day on the rig, fer shure.

The strange weather is continuing in San Diego! Uncharacteristically cold in the morning, and warming up fast during the day. Light frost the past few mornings, yesterday the humidity dropped to record lows. It was 1% humidity in a couple of areas here yesterday.

It was 36 degrees on the way to work this morning, will be around 75-80 after lunch. Strange even for San Diego.

Just cleared 15-18" from the driveway - it'll be a mid-week before I can ride safely since we don't really 'handle' snow well up here.... We had some ferocious winds with the snow - drifts in the bacjyard near 3f eet!

While I was shoveling snow I had two thoughts....
