January 2022 Weather

Lewisville, MN(Zone 4a)

Happy New Year!
I would like to see thread more active.
Lots of crazy things in weather everyday.
Here we are starting with a very cold day.
At the moment, -8 with NW wind at 19 MPH, making a wind chill of -33.
I think I will stay in today.

Any ideas how we can get more people to join us?

New greenhouse waits for warm weather to continue the build.
Cabinet work goes on. Did 4 kitchens & uther projects in 2021.

Also big year for greenhouse.
Opened for people to come here because of Covid19 restrictions.
Had a booming business. Kept Bertha very busy.
#4 picture is my favorite flower, Sun Coleus.
#5 always a few kitties to warm the day.

-12, 5MPH NW wind, feels like -25
I am hunkering down today. Probably work in the cabinet shop.

Magnolia, TX(Zone 9a)

50* at 5 am dropped to 18* (WIND CHILL) or 28* with gusting winds 14 to 18mph, a lot of sunshine, and 1/8" of light rain as temps dropped. I am cold. Went out and double checked things like faucetts, frost covers, ya know, plants that may or may not make it, came back in to thaw (and I still have my northern wear gear from driving the north). The ground had stayed 80*s so long, it is still cooling thankfully, so I added more wraps and broken pots around exposed places. Now, popcorn anyone?

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

Started at 38 down to 12 now a few flurries today , Wind advisory dropped but a cold 10 or 15 winds with gusts still here ,

Clarksville, TN(Zone 7a)

This is the current view at my house. We just had 2-3 inches. I watched my neighbor across the street try to stop her car so she could back into her driveway, but she just kept on sliding. She was finally able to get some traction and park in the driveway. It's 23. :-(

We haven't had much snow. 8" about mid December, but 70 a few days later it was gone. Only a skiff on the ground now.

Magnolia, TX(Zone 9a)

I am perfectly fine with no snow. Yup. Watched as NY dealt with theirs and sat back happy it was finally back up to 48* this afternoon. However, it is 50* out there now and I am looking at 70* by noon. 90% chance of rain tho. I did say I needed it to rain, south warm rain will make the plants happy. Got my dpt booster today, then got home and heard my great grandson has started his journey into the world today. Big Breath. Timing was good. They will be home in a few days if the boy doesn't back off and stay where its warm, chuckl. Waving hello at ya up there in that frozen world CG- and JU!

Hanging around night and day tween 40's and 50's and lower 60's. It feels like Spring weather, not winter, so I figure Winter will come in Feb and March. He is a tiny thing. Nibbles and sleeps, Dillons' dog Oakley barks at them if they let him cry, that baby belongs to her as far as she is concerned. Has felt like rain all around us, but I have stayed dry outdoors. Fed the birds and hung the gourd houses out and around, I have no clue how gourd houses will do in this humidity-and hopefully the squirrels won't think they are food.

Today ill be third day of nice. Been sunny & in the forties.
Tomorrow, winter will be back. 5" of snow coming.
We are headed for twin cities this morning to pick up cabinet doors & drawers.
Long drive but cheaper than having them shipped.
Tomorrow starts the gardening season. Will be starting Geraniums, so they bloom by Mothers Day.

Magnolia, TX(Zone 9a)

Icy water in outside water bowl, but 52* and heading warmer today, a very idle wisp of breeze outside. Computer is about to get too old to use, and am getting my new iPhone figured out.

Lewisville, MN(Zone 4a)

We got 6" snow Friday.
Monday 35 & Sunny. Today, 40 forecast.

Magnolia, TX(Zone 9a)

Sorry, been fighting my computer and the wifi networks here. We went from 72* for several days to cold. cold. temp says 34* and a light rain making the weather channel think it is snow out there...bam, there is the drizzle. feels like 27* but I threw the frost covers over tonight, maybe what is left of my greens will survive. Might make it to 48* after lunch, love your kittens CG

Lewisville, MN(Zone 4a)

We are in cold snap. Up & down, below zero then a little warm up & back down again. Lots of wind!

Clarksville, TN(Zone 7a)

It's currently 24 but going up to 48 today and 54 tomorrow. That will eliminate the rest of the snow and ice. Hate ice! My deck is a disaster from all the foot traffic and the Ice Melt. Even though it's covered, we've had a lot of wind blowing in snow. Warming=melting, but cold nighttime temps=refreezing. The deck needs a good cleaning. That's not much use until Spring.

These snow events are called Alberta Clippers.
They start in Alberta, Canada & move across the Dakota's & MN.
This time it was 3 in a row. About 24 hours apart.
minus temp's most of the day, now 5. Brrr!
Got a picture for you. My wife & Dirty Face.
One in box is Sassy. She is full grown.
