About 4 A.M. it was 52º out.  There was a big clatter of thunder and it started raining big drops hard with wind.   Then it turned into pellets of frozen rain falling for about 5 min.  The hail stopped and it was just rain. Then the wind started picking up and it has been blowing it about 30 mph most of all A.M. gusts are 42+ off and on. 

A good day for staying in side.  LOL  So I mixed up a big recipe of chocolate toll house cookie my wife likes.  That should last about 3 to 4 weeks.

I had essentially the exact same system 4 hours earlier. Lightning hit right outside the house, but luckily it was raining so no fires.
Needless to say, I got little sleep, then awoke to food poisoning (Sushi the evening earlier) and have been off all day so far.

Snowing like crazy, if we are sharing the same system, you should see a shitload of snow overnight.

Well it was raining ice at 40º from the last system.  So I guess it could snow at 40º over night.  It's calling for 2% chance of rain.  I will put my snow shovel back on the deck.  There will be 50 RVer down in the park that will be unhappy if they get up in the A.M. and there is snow all around.   :lol:

I did look out side at 3 A.M. and there was no snow.  It was 37º outside.  This keeps up and I will need to cover my Tomato's and lettuces again at night.

Well it ended after a couple of hours,  got down in the 20s and the high today is 49, which is unusual considering crystal clear skies.
Well, now I have to get dressed and go spray some more. :cry:

Sunday looks to be rather interesting. Look how it's tapping subtropic moisture all the way up to the Aleutians.
This could turn out to be an interesting storm.

It's starting to be that time a year.  The front yard is at 56º and the back yard and deck is at 95º. 

Looks like the 30º night are now gone for the year.  Don't see anything below 40º at night for the next 10 days.  Grass is greening up nicely from the Winter.   

Have not had to start watering yet as we have had rain off and on every other day or so.  Most of it falling over night and one or two hrs off and on day time.  I did cut the grass on Sunday for the first time this year.   Will need to trim some lower tree branches this year.  As I keep running into them when cutting the grass on the riding lawn mower.  That or start using a hardhat when cutting the grass.   :lol:

I'll still see 20s at night, but the valley is already in full on Spring, fields 3' tall grass.
Today is thunderstorms, and apparently, the next two weeks are the same but I'm good with that, keeps the bugs down for a while longer.
You'll need a hardhat, I'll need a beekeepers outfit. :biggrin:

 :lol:  At 7 A.M. my back deck temp is at 100º and my front yard is 43º.
Grass is all green and the trees are filling out.  Will need to cut the grass
today as the fertilizer has kick in big time with all the rain.  It's only calling
for a high of 70º today but in the sun it will feel like 80º+ out.

Fishing must going to be good as there are 15 boats on the river this A.M.
The Park down below has been full the last two weekends and I am sure
it will be this weekend also.  They have 50 RV hookups that they upgraded
to 50 AMP.   So now they have 20 30 and 50 AMP's at each site.  Most of the
RV campers live within 75 to 100 mile of the park this time a year for a weekend
getaway.
