Same here except I want and need a nice long and freezing cold winter. It's good for my plants and trees.

We got near 70 today. Is it December or May?

The weather here is gorgeous! I had the AC on this afternoon it got so hot in here. It is just beautiful.

I did get out over the weekend to sit on my swing and look at all of my plants that somehow with so little rain just keep on growing, growing, growing!

It is very satisfying to see my hut! I can also see it from my loveseat in the Livingroom so I can see it all the time whether I feel like going out or not.

It is supposed to be warm here for at least another week! I like short winters!

Pepper, think it is May! hahah!

I'm not complaining...perfect here. I have lots of birds visiting the back yard, even saw a group of Carolina Chickadees yesterday (only see them in the winter months). Mid to upper 70's during the day and mid to upper 50's at night...Hard to bring myself into the house lately.

But we all know this could change with the blink of an eye...

The Doldrums. I believe thats the word. For the last two or three days no wind, no rain, very little cloud. Well I should say we get a southerly breeze blow up from about 1 -3 pm and then it dies down again. Next four or five days are suppose to be the same. Other than that little breeze in the afternoon nothing moves, clear blue sky, dry, humid and HOT. 80f+ outside the window. Had to water some pots yesterday. In addition most of the islands also have VOG. That volcanic haze the blows off the active part of Kilauea. With a light southerly flow the VOG is blown over Honolulu. Lava started flowing into the ocean again last week after almost a years break. Tourists love it so do the tour guides and helicopter tours.

50 's off and on rain today and last night ,after 70 and sunny yesterday. Yes it difficult to tell if it is spring of winter towards solstice.

Well I would make a tourist as I would love seeing the lava flowing into the ocean and 80 degree temps. Good heavens !!! keep at it a minute or two and I will have Tahiti syndrome!!! or maybe it should be re-named Hawaii syndrome?Oh I guess why the older people of days past said paradise syndrome? something to look up I guess...

LOL@ Pepper

We had a bit of rain this morning coming in off the ocean, would tell you how much, but the Darling Husband dropped my rain gauge and broke it. Looks like it is done though...so no excuse to not go for my walk now. Was 62 this morning, warmest morn we've had for awhile now.

Full moon the other night from my backyard. Fall color crape myrtle, my Christmas cactus about to bloom.

Wasn't Indiana a state that was very dry during the summer.
I would never complain about rain.
We had 5" of rain in early May & 4" in late May. Both times our crops were under water. Those rains saved the crops around here when it didn't rain the rest of the summer.

Yes with extreme drought , some of the cornfields, the corn never got taller than hip high or tall. Other fields looked okay ,only still the drought was bad here,
One of these earlier threads I was talking about a couple of rain storms? in May? 27 or 28 days in June with no rain at all ,then one one little sprinkle or so.
I know it was worse still farther south ., a lot of food that never was and a lot of work "shot to H!!" this season past was for many

I am not a farmer or market gardener only that is still much of my food going by there..

Maybe someone will post here and say how the Mississippi river is doing now.

Amazing isn't it. Early summer 2011, the Missouri river flooded a lot of the countryside. Now not enough water to float barges. Heavy snow & rain up here & flooding will be on the Mississippi in the spring.

Crashes all over the state today. 61 injuries, 1 death. 597 cars in the ditch.
Stay home! people.

We are at about 6" of snow, but it was warm all day so most melted. 10 now with 25MPH wind from NW.

Lot of difference there!!!

I have been watching the news and looking at the long range weather forecasts ,Weather is doing as well it can trying to give everyone a white Christmas.

Says your expecting drier than normal conditions CG only colder? You talked about about that earlier. Suppose to be about normal here .
What fascinated me was the extreme wet conditions forecast for the upper plains states area . That place has been dry bone gulch since the red river floods ?
Says normal for the states south of here also, wondering though ,do any of you here remember when" weather "was normal?
That or record breaking temps have become the new normal...

I managed to get to work no problem this morning but alot of my coworkers couldn't get out. Winds have now died down some so we can see but roads are still in bad shape in spots so school will probably be cancelled again tomorrow. We got 1-2 inches here.

Freezing rain on Mauna Kea yesterday. At 2200ft we had heavy showers and gusty trade winds. Streams are flowing after being dry for a few months. The flow stops if we don't get rain for 12 hours. Has not gone above 68f for a couple of days. Better today with some sun. Should be nice over the weekend but showers and wind could return next week. Maybe some snow on Mauna Kea. Ground does not dry out so yard work is difficult.

I am home now from the family Christmas dinner , nice to see everyone! Storm warning has changed! to a Blizzard warning , had a feeling it was going to do that. 31 now with a mild cold wind.. After 1 am or so it is suppose start . 12 or more inches of snow predicted with 40 mph + winds.. This is when winter weather gets interesting?
More colder weather to follow...

The snow has totally skipped us this round. 19 degrees now with temps going down to single digits.

My truck isn't liking the cold today. Even spoiled it by letting it warm up and I got some not so good reactions for my efforts. Hmph!! lol

Merry Christmas everybody!! Stay warm or cool depending on where you are.

Juhur thanks for the snow pics! You all need to put on those snowsuits and post some snow pics. ;-)

Those are the kind of pic's I'm talking about. The #4 with the tire...that's great...I'd go out to take that shot, then go in and call in sick. Actually #5 would make me call in sick, 4 might make me walk a bit more around, love fresh snow...been a very very long time...let's put it this way I was not driving yet. ☺

Real sunshine for the first time in almost a week. Rain has backed off and now we just need things to dry out. Got into the 70s today.

I love those pics Juhur. Reminds me of my childhood in England and walking to school in shoulder high snow drifts (Age 10). Roads would run between hedgerows and wind would blow snow off the fields and fill in the roadway to the top of the hedges. English double decker buses did not handle icy roads well.

54. windy, and chilly with rain off and on. I went out while it was sprinkling to uncover the plants, so they could get a drink of water, then washed and dried the sheets. It's supposed to get down to 34 tomorrow night. Not sure what the high is for tomorrow. We need to get the plastic up in the hut for our Makeshift Greenhouse. If Jan. is like Dec. we may not have that many cold days! But there is three more months until Spring! What to do, what to do?????

Happy New Year Everyone!

Chilly night, but absolutely gorgeous day! Supposed to warm up and no more freezes until Friday!

The constant changes are hard on the body...warm cold, warm cold. It does a job on the sinuses and headaches!

The pictures of the snow are absolutely beautiful, but I am very glad that it is you and not us! Several years ago we had snow in December...It actually stuck. It was pretty, but does a job on my tropical plants!

Hope everyone has a safe New Year's Eve!

Light rain over night and early morning, sun just coming out at 11.00am and about 70f. Ground just won't dry out for gardening. Fair weather and light winds forecast until Monday nite then more frequent showers forecast but nothing heavy.

New years eve is fireworks, usually from 9pm to 1am. Local asian traditions with large strings of firecrackers, lots of noise and smoke in town neighborhoods. Streets covered in red paper by new year morning. Smoke and fire risk were concerns until Honolulu banned most fireworks on Oahu last year. They still allow the strings of firecrackers with a permit.
We still have them on the Big Island but very few in our neighborhood, not many homes. So pray for some showers to keep the fire risk down and wind to blow the smoke away.

Happy New year everyone.

Snow coming in overnight. Highs today in low 40s. Ground will still be warm at first so they are saying we will be dealing with icy roads too. Nice...NOT!!! Winter advisory starts at 6am and lasts til 6am Tues morning. Expecting up to 5 inches south of I-70.

Weather liars lied again. Said snow would go south, it went north. Everyone would have snow by 6am. They were off by 2 hours and I was in a big bubble of no snow this morning for some time. It finally started snowing and been snowing off and on since. Not much accumulation til close to dark then it started sticking since the ground was getting cold enough finally. They are saying everyone will have close to 4 inches. I think those who were already getting snow this morning before me will get more. If I see 4 inches in the morning I will be suprised.

Birds loving the snow. Some pics taken thru dirty window. lol
