Good old Ohio - where you can get frostbite and heat exhaustion a few days apart....
We hit over 80 degrees on Friday and right now it's 39 degrees and a bitter cold rain is falling...

I'm glad I got on the yard yesterday as it was in the 70's and today it is in the 40's and raining

Monday I mowed my lawn in a t-shirt, Tuesday morning there was an inch of snow. It's that 'don't like the weather? Wait 10 minutes' time of year, pretty much all over :)

After moving to the Pacific Northwest about 10 years ago many things have been learned about local practices.

It amazed me at a cardio rehab gathering that all the people were mentioning mowing their yards. My comment was about always being told to not cut grass when it was wet. Someone said, "up here if you don't mow when it is wet, you don't mow.

Last week on a day trip to Portland we were westbound on US 30 and saw some guy working his mower in front of his house. Funny thing is he didn't have any lawn. Maybe he was mulching the leaves. It was the first sunny day in a few weeks, maybe he just wanted a reason to be outside.

It's all my fault. Friday it was 84 here. I've been trying to give the mower a spring tune for a month. The grass needs a mow now. Yesterday I pulled the deck from the mower to get it ready. It was a little cooler 54. Today it's 30 and snow. Don't worry tho I'm not going to touch that mower today.

Just came in from blowing snow. Friday when I went to bed it was raining a little bit and I could see most of the brown grass in my yard. Wake up Saturday and we have 12 inches of new snow. Storm takes a break during daylight on Saturday and returns Saturday night, we have another 8 inches of new snow and it's still snowing. Put some food in the bird feeder outback and I have 22-24 inches of snow where I had none last Friday when I last filled the feeders. I got a bone to pick with a beady eyed groundhog.

The Royals vs Angels game here in KC was cancelled today due to the cold weather. They played last night in a snowstorm. Just not right.

The Green Bay Blizzards, an arena football team, cancelled their game because of actual blizzard conditions.
