If the wind blows just right we will hit 44º   :lol:

Today I took the good wife out for a ride.  We took a ride up to the high ridge (2000').   
It is about 26 miles.  At about 1500' everything turned white, but not for snow. 
The fog has been freezing for the last 4 days up there.

I live in an area called Horse Heaven Hills in South Benton County.
I pulled the photo off the net.   This will give you some idea of what I see every day in the Summer


This is looking at Horse Heaven from the back of my place.




This is looking over into Oregon from my place.

This winery is about 5 miles away, in all there are 58 winerys within 1.5 hrs drive of me.

As a young kid I fished in the Columbia River before it was dammed up. I had a uncle that lived with us off and on when he was working on the McNary Dam and John Day Dam.  Also a uncle that worked at Hanford nuclear site.   This area was my backyard until I was 15.

I found it rather interesting, I love history.
My entire area is based on the gold rush, and that is it, outside of Indian relics, not much else happened in my area.
That is, until the leftist started locking off the forests for any activity other than foot traffic, and even that has been limited because of So Called "endangered species" Bull Shit.

:laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
It's 23 out, but everyday has been warmer than the last.
I've been in a T-shirt every day in the shade, and today I'll wear shorts as well, it's literally late Spring weather outside in the 70s.
Boy are there going to be some angry bugs when Spring arrives and they discover not many of their brethren survived. :biggrin:

Same weather here guys, but on the other side of the map.  Here in SC it is 22deg @07:00.
Been this way for a few days this week but colder in the last two with the temp. hovering at about 35deg at peak.  Starts warming back up today to about 55deg. and by Tuesday we should reach 75deg.  Crazy!

Walks, those are beautiful pics.  You and Solar have nice places to live.  We are close to some beautiful scenery too, being about 7 miles from SC mountains.  It's almost time to start seeing those beautiful out of season blooms.  The only problem with that is crop loss as we live down the road from a bunch of peach orchards.  Last year the peach growers around here lost too much of their crop due to early spring temps.

We went from 8 degree nights, to subtropical weather. It has been close to 70 during the day, much like the weather you find in the Summer during a rainy day, cool, yet knowing the moment the sun pops out, it will be miserable.

You're right, all of the West Coast is beautiful, which is why it's so hard to move away from the dung heap the left made it into.
If I were in my 20s I'd head to Alaska, and may still yet, if Ca doesn't hurry up and fold.
The longer we postpone the inevitable, the worse the end will be.

Wow!!    Is winter over with  :lol:  Today was 75º in the sun 56º in the shade.  Weekend looks like more of the same.  Got the back deck all cleand off and backyard flower bed all cleaned out.  Had The Dude (cat) outside with me for about 3 hrs.  She was making sure I was doing things right, well in between all her naps.  The neighbors dog came over and it was time for her to hit the door.   :lol:  They have a 15 month old Rottweiler now and everything is a toy for him.   So she think the door is the right thing to do.

I know, were in Spring right now, the last few days have been absolutely gorgeous, I even let the fire go out, didn't even light it the last couple days.
Looks like we are about to get some subtropical weather the next few days.
And to think, we still have Feb and March snow yet to deal with. :scared:

Well winter returned with a vengeance, started snowing about 10:00 am, within 10 mins we had 2" on the ground, knew it would only get worse, called Toy, said come home, she hit snow at 1200' in the foothills and had to drive 30 miles in the snow.
She spun out only once :rolleyes: but regained her composure and like the trooper she is, persevered home, where we have a solid half foot and more expected.

Look like you will hit again on the 22nd.  We are calling for rain off and on.  More off then on.  lol  The dry farmers can use the rain.

Yeah, saw that too, but it is Feb, and March has some as well.
I love the cold dry air associated with it, but I hate having to do an Easter egg hunt every time I need something, the necessary tool is always buried deep. :glare: :laugh:

This month we had fog almost ever A.M. until about 9 A.M.  I like the snow it keeps the fog away.  Living 500' about the river the fog starts rolling in about 6 A.M.   It's been so nice I have did all the flower beds now, did the last up today.   If it keeps this up I will fertilize the lawn at the end of the month.   Trees are starting to bud out already.  Starting to run out of things to do so I think I will wash and wax the truck soon.
