Another "cool" front blew through Indy last night with a reinforcing short of cool air. Lots of wind and temps today in the 60's. Maybe some light frost tomorrow. We are still way down in the rainfall department but we got half an inch Wed. afternoon and that was as much as we received in all of August!

I understand the consistence part, but I think I could live with temps going up high enough to melt the ice and snow. Instead of spending weeks/months living with it. But thats just me. I read a post earlier where a person stated they would like to go up in northern Michigan to experience the snow storm.

Understood, and I don't get that either, wanting snow. I vote for 70's for everyone all winter.

It was absolutely fabulous here today. We had a high of 60 degrees and no wind. I took my little buddy, Alfie, out side for a tour around the yard at 3 PM and he absolutely did not want to come back in the house.....just wanted to stretch out in the grass and soak up some sunshine.

If it will make you feel any better, RC, we had an inch of snow 2 days ago, and expect 2-5" tomorrow. Then bitter cold until Wednesday.

No it doesn't make me feel better. But I do realize that you know exactly how I feel tho. I wouldn't mind the winter if we had longer summer weather. We only get two months of really warmer weather. Then we get 4 to 6 months of ???? weather. And then we get 4 months of COLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD TO THE BONE temps.

you guys just keep all that white stuff up north. I've lived in New England once for 3 years and will NEVER live that far north again. Bad enough that we occasionally get snow in Dallas, can't imagine having several months of it again. One thing I really miss about living in Hawaii, having a white sandy beach Christmas was sure nice.

Ooohhhh. . . The weather outside is frightful,
but the UV is so delightful!
Sad to say that's where my butt will be planted this weekend. WINTER STORM WARNING in effect.

If I hear that song, Let It Snow, one more time in a store, I'm gonna be ill!
Feel bad for all you folks getting blizzards and so much snow.

Well, RC, if it makes you feel any better......after that 60 degree high yesterday...it had dropped to 44 degrees at 8 AM today and then the front roared through. 33 deg. at 9 AM. 22 deg. by around 4 PM when I took Alfie out for his after-dinner draining. The wind was also blowing with gusts 30 to 40 mph. Alfie squatted......then tried to walk around the house, his hair plastered back against his body by the wind....then he took one look at me and bolted for the front door to be let inside.
Right now, 5:45 PM, it is 18.6 degrees and still dropping. We also have had some light snow flurries.....but no accumulation. After we gave up our full-time RVing we should have settled in Texas. But that's another story.
I hate winter just as much as you do RC.

I don't like it when temps drop like that. If it is going to get cold then stay cold, and then warm up when the time comes. If it is going to be 2 degrees be 2 degrees, don't warm up to 40 and then back down to 12.
I would love to see white sany beaches on christmas day. I would probably feel like crying I would be so happy.
Congratulations! You earned the Liz badge!
