Chuckl, even Fl is freezing, poor Kelli, the 50's are a lot cooler than 90's in Calif.
Setting record lows, like Ju, due for 22* tonite, but no precip. water hoses dripping

L.A. (Canoga Park), CA(Zone 10a)

It got up to 82F yesterday. They are calling for a high of 75F. I would appreciate some seasonal weather - something called rain.

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

18 degrees and snowing here

Winter Springs, FL(Zone 9b)

31F this morning, it snowed pretty good in the north part of Florida yesterday, don't think I've ever seen that hard of a snow in my 40 years of living in FL.
Today's high 50...tonight 31.
Porch, garage and greenhouse packed full of plants....been many years since we have dipped to freezing.

L.A. (Canoga Park), CA(Zone 10a)

They say it only got up to 66F yesterday. They are calling for a high of 73F today.

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

5 below zero snow forecast for this coming weekend ,

L.A. (Canoga Park), CA(Zone 10a)

It got up to 75F yesterday. Today they are calling for a high of 73F. Those are about 10 degrees above average. I don't want to jinx myself, but it might rain Monday night/Tuesday morning.

Winter Springs, FL(Zone 9b)

33F this morn, sunny high of 58, that will be much nicer, tonight isn't supposed to go below 40.

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

Minus 9 overnight , Minus 5 now ,,

Winter Springs, FL(Zone 9b)

39F the lowest overnight, seems to be warming quicker as sun rises. Sunny high 64 today. I'm putting the plants back outside today.

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

16 now 31 later ,, 28 tonight ,, nearer usual ,,

L.A. (Canoga Park), CA(Zone 10a)

It got up to 75F yesterday. They are calling for a high of 62F! We are supposed to get 2 inches of rain today. So far we have got 0.01 inch. The sun will be coming up soon and that negates all chance of rain unless it is a whopper storm. It is discouraging. At least you know that it will warm up eventually.

I thought CG might find this a little interesting. I think it is broccoli.

I thought maybe any of you would find this interesting. This is where the Thomas Fire (the big one) burned behind the town of Fillmore. The orchards in the middle ground in the third picture are probably orange or avocado. I don't know what is in the foreground. The air here still had that old fireplace smell. Everything is so dry that it doesn't look very dramatic, but those mountains should be olive green and brown.

This is regarding where the Thomas Fire burned near the town of Carpinteria.

The mountains in the background of the first picture burned. In the second picture, the dirt on the plant is ash. (The signboards in the nature park were so covered with ash that they were hard to read.) The third picture shows how the waves are washing in ash instead of foam. You can see the burned mountains in the background of the fourth picture. (The birds are Caspian terns.)

37*, bright sun, 15mph winds makes the feel like at 22*. Winds hit abt 4pm 20mph and the 70* started plummeting.
Ashes can be good for soils, but I still can hear the damage counting.

Kitt only gives me cold feet Sun glaring off the snow is good for headaches ,,

16 degrees sunny , snow covered ...

Lewisville, MN(Zone 4a)

Snow all afternoon here. Now wind has picked up & blowing snow around.
Vikings owned the first half 17 to 0. With 10 seconds left NO were ahead 24 to 23.
Our QB threw a pass, Diggs caught it & ran into end zone with 0 on the clock. I was at the Legion Club watching it. Place went nuts. Can only imagine what the big bars with hundreds of people in them sounded like. Great day in Minnesota.

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

25 degrees , flurries

Lewisville, MN(Zone 4a)

Nasty cold here. Zero degrees & wicked NW wind. Wind chill around -25 degrees.
