I hope these warnings are all a joke, it looks lovely outside right now and has been nice and sunny today. I saw quite a few people walking around in t-shirts or with no coats. I don't think its warm enough for that yet but I guess a few people must have been inspired by the sunshine to dress like it was spring or summer.

When they say, "it aint like it used to be", I suppose it also is in reference to the weather.
Cold I don't mind, but for everything there is a season, and as I look at my calendar, Winter it aint! ;)
Worst? To me it's the best winter I have yet to experience! I love it!

I think it's who can get a tan first.

It is safe to say you can take them off as soon as we finish up with this snowfall we are getting tonight. While we are about to get cold behind it, the remaining cold this weekend and early next week has no snow going along with it before we get going with the warmup middle of next week. So you won't need the winter tires after tonight, but you will need the hat, mitts and CG for this last shot of cold dry air.
blahhh

Ya. The sun angle is high again. UV index is moderate and sun strength is that of near mid September and going up daily so we are starting back with strong sun again.

This makes me so sad. If, I hope it doesn't, summer ever comes, I will have to bathe myself in sunblock just for a walk. I never had to do this in winter.

Well it's coming alright! So keep an eye out for deals on sunblock at Walmart ;) And stock up! You got 6 months of strong sun ahead of you.

If you're only going to drive when it is +6/7C then yes, if colder than that, no. I'm keeping mine on until there is no more snow on the lawn.

Excuses. Excuses. Excuses. Just like the banks, they will find a way to make you pay more.

Lol taking advantage of the polar vortex. Some greedy people I tell you! Once they have a billion bucks, they need 2 billion to be happy. And they didn't even have to feel the cold either, they go everywhere in nicely heated helicopters.
blahhh
