I use to be married to a man that did that dance.  ;) His only other dancing ability involved a heavy footed version of the Polka.  ;)

My weather - warmer than recently but very wet.

Okay, we need the rain around here, but I also need it to be a little drier for a day or two before I can get men with chainsaws working on the very wayward tree in the back yard.  :(

A real mover and shaker then, eh? 

It's plus 6 today, snowballs turn into raindrops mid path. :(

Wet.  Not canoe or raft wet, but very, very, soggy after torrential and noisy rain during the night.  Mostly straight down rain, with no wind to smack it against the windows except for about half an hour around 3 AM when I lay there wondering if it was going for 'force an entry'.  Some long drawn out rumbling thunder too, which woke me up a few times,  but distant enough that I never saw any flashes.

The sun broke out and turned the sky blue.  Amazing how a bit of blue can brighten the day.  :)

It snowed six days ago, and the weather has been cold...but not as cold as usual. Yesterday it was in the 50s. Today, it was almost 60oF! Unbelievable. We had an early spring last year, with the weather in the 70s for more than a week. Plants started to bloom. Then it went back to normal, with below freezing temps for a month or so. Lost ALL fruit trees and our early tulips. Hope that's not about to happen again.

Its a lovely mild day today, will only hit the mid 30's but yesterday we hit 43'C and sweltered all day with an electrical storm around 6.30 pm.

We had a call to a house fire that had been struck by lightening so we spent the next 3 hours standing in the hot rain dousing that.

Glad it didn't happen at midday, we'd a melted I think.  :D

A lot cooler today, only 30'. Bit of rain about makes for a pleasant change and the animals appreciate it too.  :D

You must be positively freezing, lil glo :P

There's freezing rain falling, I'm watching it hit the window and then do the sudden stop.  Rime icing they call it, smooth bumps of frozen movement.

Clear, but chilly.  Winter blue sky with some long thin streaks of grey cloud, currently streaked with gold as the sun begins to set.

Nearly perfect here. Rainy, yet above average warm. I may have to get some use out of my rain jacket later today.  :)

Tomorrow and the next day are predicted for the average cold. So I intend to enjoy while I can.

A bit more seasonal here, -10 or so, not quite the winter-madness cold, but working on it. :)

January thaw here, almost 50F which is more than 50 degrees warmer than last week. ;D ;D

Mean to enjoy it while I can, going back to the deep freeze tonight/tomorrow when a cold front moves in.

Yesterday it was warmer in Boston than Los Angeles (California). Crazy, they are spraying the fruit trees with de-icer and we're in shorts.

Glad "global warming" is just a myth...

snowed like hell all morning, then turned to rain. Just been to the supermarket with kilian strapped on and it was rather slushy underfoot...............still a bit in our street but the main roads seem to be clear.

Still a lot cooler here in Oz, well my part of it anyway.

Fires raging in the mid west, 30 houses gone and 30 farm machinery sheds.  ???
