We have a saying around here that if you don't like the weather around here, just stick around another day because it will change.
In Colorado it's "If you don't like the weather, wait 10 minutes!"

With the Rocky Mountians the weather can swing 40-degrees in no time. We've been known to be having a picnic in shorts then running to get the parkas in the same afternoon...gotta love it!

Around here, that's known as a "Blue Norther." The northwest sky suddenly turns from bright blue to slate blue/gray, but it's still T-shirt warm in the sun. A couple of minutes later, there are a few puffs of cool air. Then it hits. Drops 40 degrees ior more n half an hour or less. I keep a jacket handy, even on the nice days.

BTW: I lived in Colorado (Boulder, Longmont, Loveland) for about 20 years. I remember the Chinooks, too. Standing in bright sunlight, getting pelted by rain from a cloud that is miles away.

Picture taken out my entrance door at 9:00 pm Dec. 24th. I think its going to be white in the morning.

I am going to tell you today it was called but I still got on my mower and cleaned leaves and so fourth.

SO EAT YOUR HEARTS OF OUT DOWN SOUTH. Most of you are not going to be getting a white Christmas. I said most.

I woke Christmas morning to high 20's and you could see just a sprinkling of snow in the air. As soon as it hit the ground it melted. I did notice that it started to build up on my vista view windows but nowhere else. Come on spring!

Re: Eat your hearts out up north

John...
We don't think so. Slapping on the boards and cruising down the mountain has to be better than picking flowers.

Well ......

Southwest Airlines can always get me to that white stuff if I want to go.

I was raised in PA, lived in NY and Colorado for many years, but I don't miss that white stuff at all.

Winter is here right now (all we're likely to get). Three successive nights in the lower 20s. By mid next week, highs will be in the 70s and people will be wearing shorts again.

Seriously, we are envious. The cold does get to you here after a while. Two of our favourite State parks are Watkins Glen and Allegany in New York. We try to finish of our camping season each year in October at Allegany. Beautiful country and only a 3 hour drive from Toronto.

Cool Watkins Glen

Our family went to Watkins Glen when I was about 13 years old. I have always wanted to go back. It is really beautiful.

My Dad really loved to travel around northern PA and southern NY. We were poor, so Mom slept in the car (she was short), Dad and we three brothers slept on picnic tables or the ground. We started our weekend trips as soon as WW II gas rationing ended. Tires were always a problem on out jaunts; on an average weekend Dad usually had to fix at least one flat.

One of our favorite places to go was the "Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania". At that time, it was really remote and untouched. We could motor around all day and never see another tourist. It was on one of those trips that we wandered up to Watkins Glen.

upstate New York

We were in Letchworth State Park a few years ago in October. With that huge gorge full of colored leaves it was fantastic. The 8th wonder of the world. When you say New York people think "city" but it actually a very big and beautiful state.

Ups and downs

It's cold tonight (30s), but we had a 87 degree day Tuesday. What a joy! The morning started foggy and cool, but by 9 AM, it was T-shirt weather. I spent the morning at my volunteer job at the Wildflower Center and actually got to sweat a little.

Great Day Today!

-1F here this morning. No flys or mosquitos to swat. No sweat to wipe off my brow. Cars and trucks are nice and cool inside. Don't have to mow the lawn, does it get any better?
