Default Spring MIA!


It's 24F at 8am this morning, absolutely No wind overnight, and it's been CLOUDY most of the night, and still the air is this cold!

This is Montana February, not California's Great Central Valley. In fact, it's 26F in Great Falls, Montana at this moment!!

Every almond orchard (they're in full bloom right now) has sprinklers of some sort running to keep the air above freezing, but usually they're able to shut off water when the sun comes up. No sun today!


Ice on blooms actually keeps them from damage because their temperature won't fall below freezing.

We're all getting thoroughly Bored with this weather!!

Cold and frosty in SD's East County. Second day in a row, moving to Montana and take up curling.

It's rained for two days here. Woke up this morning to about 50F and foggy as can be. It was so foggy three deer felt safe enough to come in the front yard and graze. Although they were a little skittish and looking for whatever was causing that noise on the highway. I watched them for several minutes until they worked their way around to the neighbors front yard. Usually they only come out of the woods into the back yard. Seeing them in the front was nice.

Absolutely glorious here.
Got the XJR-s from under the shed thing yesterday, put the cover on. ready for an 0815 departure for a Jag breakfast meet 40 miles away.
Took the cover off; locks frozen shut.
Buggeration.
Anyway sorted; I somehow always knew that hot urine would serve a useful purpose.
Now you're assuming that I peed on my car door.
It was far too cold to pee outside(-3.7C) with several layers of thermals on so I went back in and got a glass of warm water to pour on the locks.
Did a 130 mile round trip in fabulous weather and enjoyed every minute; even though the heater doesn't work.

Nix's heater is waaay outdone by the Korean Toaster but I thought it was because it doesn't get so cold in UK as in Korea.

Wrong again.....

We live in a Temperate Climate, my Geography Teacher told me.
Which means that we are suitably adapted to invade and conquer any country that is about 20C hotter or 20C colder than ours (that's about 70F either way in old money).
My History teacher told me.
I suggest manual labour.
My Science Teacher told me.
Actually the weather reports are crap; I came off the ship on Wednesday, after having suffered a week of biting Northerly winds blowing right up my clunge whilst I was stood loading on the stern ramp, to be told that that at -6C it would be the coldest winter for 10 years.
I pointed out to Annie that it went down to -9C (16F) 6 years ago and low and behold, next morning, coldest winter for 5 years.
Tossers, the lot of them.
Global warming?
When!

I always suspected the British conquered the world mainly in search of good weather.

You're probably right but they definitely cocked up when they got the Falklands; the weather is even worse down there than it is here.

Reminds me of that big bang theory show. One asks another how's the weather in India, is it hot? He replied of course it's hot, it's always hot, it's India!

Here though, yesterday we had a cold front come through, I heard we had a tornado warning but the tornado wasn't near us it was 20 miles away. Tore up a little bit, some homes and such. One spring in the mid 00's we had over a hundred small ones pop up during the night across the state.

This is the first morning in 2 weeks I haven't awakened to FROST on all flat surfaces and frozen water hoses!
'Bout Time!
March happens on Thursday. Nut crops (Almonds and such) will be effected, as bees don't work in this weather.

A good opportunity to test the heated windscreen.

Tad da boom!
Good one Eleanor!
I've been panic shopping before everyone else started;
Bread.
Vodka.
I forgot the beer but guess I'll just have to struggle through these upcoming difficult times.
With wine that I had anyway.
I still have this childish (59 this year) excitement at the prospect of serious snow; inexplicable I know but I think that it shows that I still have a soul and a bit of wonderment left in these creaky old veins.
To be fair, it has been an odd weather system and the little bit of snow where we live has stuck like glue to where it landed.
Fairly large parts of the (quite small country) have been swamped with snow; we've had beautiful clear skies and a somewhat chilly wind.
I blame it on Brexit.
Anyway, it's arriving tonight so I will try and maintain communications as long as I can.
If you don't hear from me again it's probably because I tripped over the dog in the snow and broke my neck or got run over by a gritter truck.
Love y'all!
