Winters are just weird in general, but this one really is strange. I remember some Christmas eve's where the temp (without wind chill) was 0, and some where I was outside playing with my toys in a t-shirt and jeans. We had an ice storm Christmas eve, but Christmas was 60 degrees. Today it is nice, but it rained and iced over last night. I think Mother Nature has PMS and is just playing with us.
We hit 66 degrees here yesterday and that warm front moved east to your neck of the woods. We had a huge thunderstorm here overnight that turned to a thunder/ice storm when the cold front moved in early this morning. Not to worry Mike - you'll get our cold front tomorrow.
Christmas Eve and Christmas day the ground was covered with snow and all the trees & bushes were covered with ice and when the sun shown they sparkled like diamonds and it looked like I was in Narnia!
Today the temp was 60, snows all gone, the winds were ferocious, rain was torrential with flood warnings for several areas close to rivers or streams. Looks like a typical December now...........all brown and naked.
While we don't have snow here, we do have freezing temps overnight.
A week ago, it rained during the night and then promptly froze. I had a heck of a time getting my car door open as the lock was frozen. It took about 10 minutes or so to even get the door opened. Then I had to start the car and put the heater on full blast. I put water on the windshield to melt the frost as well as all the windows. It is a good thing that I am a person that hates to be late to work so I normally arrive about 30 minutes before time to start.
