We've had sun and snow squalls flip flop all day. No accumulation to amount to much. Was a high of 28. Been a little breezy to.  :)

Whew, what a difference a day makes!  High 40s and sunny yesterday, nice day, now it's in the teens with the wind just a whipping!  My windows are whistling.  Darn wind woke me up at 5AM.  I'd only been in bed for 3 hours.  >:(

Wind picked up here by noon and a few flurries, no big snow storm though, nothing accumulating.

Sun shining here now, and actually some before noon. The snow didn't amount to beans. All bare, relatively speaking. The fields and woods still have lots of old snow. ;D

Not here, January finally arrived 2 months late. Cold, dry, brisk wind out there. We have had a long spell with no storms, not even rain while it could be storming 40 miles away.  Snow squalls don't count for beans.  8)

yep,they got that right,rain and snow. 26 with about an inch of snow this morning. I work about 15 minutes from here. Really no snow to speak of until I got about half way home. Than the ground was white.

It's so foggy this morning I can't see the hedgerow to the field across the road.  I can only see about halfway across.  It's a narrow field.  :o

After some rain last night I thought all would be quiet today for fires. As I was heading home my phone rings..... normally people call 911, but a guy I know managed to set the woods on fire. Nothing too big since he had his dozer on site. Maybe we'll get a little more rain tonight... but I am going to give him a hard time for a while  8)

It's amazing how many fires you seem to get down there.  We hardly ever have any, if there is it's just a little brush fire that got out of control from a bonfire or something.
