Crazy Weather

It rained just like summertime...  In February.  I think it may have thundered, Chance hid.

When it rains on heavy snowpack it makes fog.

I call it snow fog but that may not be the correct term.

Two car lengths

You could see about two car lengths. 

Fog in Osage

I wouldn’t want to be walking.

Foggy Driveway

The driveway is slushy.

Summer time rain in Feb

The yard is a lake. When it freezes our yard will be a skating rink.   Late in the afternoon it rained really hard.  The path to the sauna is free of snow!

I heard that Detroit Lakes had snow thunder and hail.  It was 49 F or 9 C  eh!

We have April weather in February.

There is still snow at the snowstick…but who knows for how much longer.

  1. I can't believe it but as much as I love the (non) winter here, you make me nostalgic for the many faces of winter in Minnesota! My daughter sent me a picture of 3 year old Mason in shorts and snow boots yesterday! Poor,kid doesn't know what to wear in such strange weather!

  2. What crazy weather everywhere! The big talk on the local news this morning was about the strawberry fields...the plants are already blooming. If it turns back to winter here, NC, we will lose everything. The peach trees are blooming now too. Usually our last frost date is April 15th. It's crazy!

  3. Crazy weather here also. It was in the mid 60's yesterday. Kids across the street are wearing short sleeves and shorts. This is not February, that's for sure.

  4. It was 77 here yesterday and 50's are the usual for this time of year. I hung clothes out and my Spring allergies (which I never had before) had me about blind by evening....windy out and tree pollen evidently. Sneezing and my eyes were like slits.....it got me to bed early because I couldn't watch t.v. or read....I had to just close them and give them a rest! LOL! I'm pretty sure this is real Spring! At least down here it is. Forsythia is blooming too. Snow fog....remember it well! It rained all last night but no storms just rain.

  5. That fog is amazing. Hearing from blog friends across the country, it is very strange weather indeed. Our pollen count for this date is the highest ever.

  6. Sounds like lots of areas are having strange weather. We found Harbinger-of-Spring (Pepper and Salt) yesterday at Garbry Big Woods Sanctuary.

  13. Oh, be careful walking. With my recent fall. I just cringe at the thought of ice. But...it's 61° in " the cities" as I type.

  14. We have very similar weather; rain on top of a couple of feet of snow. Sure hope it doesn't get real cold again. I'm ready for spring.

  16. Definitely strange weather all over!! Our snow is just about gone now and believe it or not now there is a chance of more next week. I hope the weather people are going to be wrong!!

  17. Rained here too. Like you say, crazy weather!

  18. Oh, you'll probably have more snow before this winter is over. We are supposed to get snow/rain showers tomorrow, and then possible thunder storms. Weird weather.

  19. We had lots of rain over the week end, but rain in February is more common here in Texas. Now snow would be something I would write about !! I believe Spring has arrived in my part of Texas.

  20. Everyone is commenting about the weird weather where they are, too. Our weather is pretty average for the date, I checked. But what a winter we've had! :-)

  21. I don't blame you for not wanting to go ice skating just now. What a mess! We have a lake in our front yard, too, this February. I guess I should be thankful that at least it won't freeze over!
