cant believe this weather, yesterday im out working on my car in a tee shirt, I almost want to look at the calendar to make sure senility is not setting in, feb 20, 59 degrees, unheard of up here, sun is shining, warm , feels good and not a speck of snow, one week ago it was 3 degrees, a 56 degree jump. I was plowing a foot of snow in my skid steer , now I worry about what the summer is going to be like, we wont have any ground water, my pond and well have dried up buy june the last few years, the snow is what sustains us thru the summer, when it melts slowly its the water that does down deep and is drawn up by the summers heat, only time will tell, I have probably jinxed myself now and the storm clouds are forming above my head as I write this. ha ha ha !!!! hows the weather in your area?

It's been 4 degrees above "here" the past few days... Still kicking myself for not getting out and doing some tractoring in the sunshine and warmth.

I'm using Celsius degrees here.

Had 82F here yesterday with virtually no wind, finally.  Been real windy here lately.  I'd fly my drone just as soon as the battery would get charged.  The MRS put on a coat to come outside and watch me fly.  I laughed at her.  Her coat didn't last but about a minute. 

When the drone battery would run down I'd put it on the charger and fire up the ole dirt bike and inflict some torture on the bike, and myself.  Repeat as neccessary. 

Snuck a nap in there too.  It was a great day.

All last week has been great, (besides the 30mph winds and 50+mph gust) our temps have been in the 60's 70's and we even got to 80 degrees, we haven't had the wood burner (only heat we have) burning for over a week now, our lows are have been in the high 40's and 50's.


The really weird part is, we have been seeing a lot of spider webs floating through the air, also seeing a lot of bugs and other insects around. The really weird part is, we can hear frogs down in the slough, I don't know what the weather is going to do?

Can't complain about the weather here either. Out working  on a couple of compact tractors in shirt sleeves. What a wonderful winter this has been.  :thumbs:

Was 50* in Iowa yesterday. Then wake up to snow and white knuckle driving conditions this morning. Then when got back home around 5pm was perfect roads and couldn't tell it even snowed this morning. Strange weather patterns
