Thursday’s Tidbits

So. We’ve had a little snow in Tahoe. Or, you know, a lot. Just up the road at Squaw Valley Ski Resort, they just announced they’re keeping the ski lifts running until July 4th. Let me repeat that. You can snow ski until July 4th.

Here at the house, it’s been odd. In some places of the yard, we’re down to dirt. In others, there’s still ten feet of snow. This is the view out my front door.

Even the dogs are confused… Where are you and what’s your weather doing?

  1. Our “snow” is yellow pollen. I had to use the windshield wipers it was so thick this morning. The whole truck is yellow.

  2. MN – we’ve had rain, dreary damp weather, then will get 1 weekend nice day- then rain and more dreariness – we had threat of snow last week-

  3. SPAMTOWN U.S.A. – Austin, Minnesota. Cloudy right now (7:05 am CT) and 46° with winter precip…had thunderstorm last night.

  4. Here in Maryland this morning it’s gray and dreary, and a wee bit chilly. By afternoon, it should be in 80°, and raining. Not the best day, but not the worst either. B-) :)

  5. Heading toward summer here in Chesapeake, VA. High today is 85.

  6. Central Texas & we are heading to mid 80s & humid but we have a cold front coming in Sat morning that will keep us dry & cool (low 70s) for most of next week. Our lows are going from mid 60s to low 50s. We only have a low chance for rain Sat morning other than that mostly sunny

  7. I’m afraid to admit I’m in Richmond, VA and it’s going to be 87 today. My allergies are going crazy, so I’m fairly miserable though. I used to live in Northern NJ and while we never got what you have there, we had our fair share of feet. You feel like it will never go away.

  8. Here in north Georgia, we are humid and in the 80’s. Pollen is insane!

  9. Coastal North Carolina, it’ll be sunny and around 90 today. It’s hot, humid, and I’m stuck at work instead of the beach! :negative:

    • What part of the coast? We vacation in the Outer Banks. We go to Ocracoke every year! Best place on Earth!

  10. I’m in Central Florida, along the Space Coast. At 9am, we’re already at 79°. It’s already getting ridiculously hot and no sign of rain to help our brush fire situation.

  11. Jill, if I lived where you lived, as beautiful as it looks in your pictures, as awesome as the lakes are in your pictures, I’m afraid I’d be screaming by now!! Winter is over, Spring is here, Summer is just around the corner!! Snow has no business still falling and just laying around getting dirty. However, that being said, I’m very glad that all this snow is helping the drought in California. So, I guess there is that!!
    BTW, it was 70 the other day here in Nova Scotia! Sorry!!!!

  12. Cincinnati, Ohio. Our weather lately has been between mid-60’s to low 80’s but we are suppose to get rain that brings in a cold front for the weekend. The cold front depresses me because I am hosting my mother’s surprise 60th party at my house on Sunday and I was hoping to set some tables and chairs outside.

  13. WOW! We considered moving there years ago after spending our honeymoon there. Especially after he retired from AF. I love snow but that’s just a little too much for this Mississippi girl!! 5 years in South Dakota was enough!!

  14. I am in Va Beach, VA! Yesterday it was like 60 today it is going to be 80…tmrw 90! That’s right 9-0 in April! WTH? Then back in the 60s on Sat! My head is very painful!

  15. Hi Jill,
    I am in Peoria, AZ and it is 91 and sunny. You can fell sorry for me in July r August when it is 118 or hotter. Still I would take hot over cold any day. The pictures you post are gorgeous and I enjoy the snow from here.
    have a great day,

  16. Dallas, Texas & we were 71 at 6:30 with cloudy skies that are supposed to burn off. We’re supposed to be in the 80’s today.

  17. Skiing in the middle of the summer??? Crazy.

    I’m in Orlando where it’s absolutely gorgeous. Sorry. My view is sun and flowers. Unfortunately though we haven’t had any rain and the grass is not exactly green.

  18. Here on Long Island it is 54 degrees and raining. It was 80 degrees on Easter! Rain is supposed to stop this afternoon and begin again tonight. At least it is washing the pollen off the cars and keeping it down for now. Time to break out the Allegra and Benadryl.

  19. Wow, July 4th huh? Good for the resort I guess. In sunny Florida it’s hot already. Thank God for air conditioning! My daughter keeps threatening to leave the state for cooler climes as soon as she hits 18. The other is in Chicago at Great Lakes Naval Station and says she hates the weather there. Doesn’t say she misses Florida though. Personally I can handle the summer as long as I get to spend my winters here. Winter here is glorious. I used to live up north and I don’t miss all that snow one bit. I’ll just enjoy the photos, thank you very much. I’ve noticed that dogs like any kind of weather and can always seem to find a way to have some fun. Maybe we should be more like that.

  20. Here in Swansea, IL the weather is partly cloudy with a chance of showers. The high today will be in the 70’s. A cool front, is coming tomorrow, the high will only be in the 60’s. Which is fine with me.

  21. Here is Southern Ontario we are having rain and is about 40F. We had snow at the beginning of April but I think it’s gone until November. I hope!!!

  22. I’m in south Georgia, where today’s predicted high will be 87 degrees, which is still considered pleasant compared to what it’s going to be later in the summer. What is snow?

  23. I am in Missouri and it is cloudy and about 60 degrees. It was 85 yesterday but way too warm for April. Cool down and rain coming for a few days. Your snow looks kind of spastic. Lol

  24. Holy emoji! I’m in southern NV and it has been and will be “above average” temps — in the 80’s so far but 90’s the next couple of days. You are welcome to visit!

  25. I’m in SC, sunny and chance of rain 80 degrees!!

  26. Millers Island, MD we had a spring shower earlier this morning, now the sun is poking out. I’m reading on my phone watching my granddaughter today who is watching the tablet.

  27. Well here in Laurel Delaware we have cloudy skies with a chance of a stray shower. Cooler than yesterday, mid to high 60’s. Supposed to warm up to 80 by Friday and cooler on Saturday and rainy on Sunday. A washout and they keep saying we need the rain so I guess I can take it. At least for one day.

    Hope you have warm weather soon.

  28. Southeast Wisconsin……all its been doing is rain, rain, rain. We get a few nice days as a teaser! Thinking of building an ark!

  29. Western Michigan – rain. Thunderstorms this morning, more expected tonight. Temp this morning – 48. Expected high near 70. Pure Michigan!

  30. Southwestern New Mexico. Windy and warm, some dust (normal spring). Green beans and squash plants are up, grape vines are leafing out. Almost all trees are leafed out.

  31. Austin, Texas and its been in the 80s for quite a while we had our warmest February on record this year.

  32. Here in St. Paul, Minnesota it’s 41 degrees and wet. We had thunderstorms during the night. All that snow by you has to be good for the economy and drought.

  33. Here in Illinois it was 84 yesterday and supposed to get colder every day and be back in the low 50s by Saturday

  34. If they’re still skiing into July, wouldn’t the snow be an ugly, dirty snow without receiving new snow to replace &/or cover it up ? Hmmm…….just wonderin’.

  35. In the midlands in SC it will be sunny and 84 today, 90 tomorrow!

  36. South Florida yes the Sunshine State this week Mother Nature can’t make up mind as to whether or not she’s going to be hot or chilly and rainy or sunny…although it seems to rain for about 15 minutes everyday and then the sun comes out and it is gorgeous…

  37. Hey , it’s sunny and 79 here in Georgia

  38. Sunny and the low 90s in El Paso Texas

  39. :eek: That is a lot of snow!! I was in the Mt. Shasta area recently where there is a lot of snow on the mountain. More snow than I can remember ever seeing. In my corner of northern California it is sunny this morning but we had rain last night. I am ready for spring to return. :smile: Hopefully, the snow season is ending!

  40. Anchorage….still snow but visibly melting due to high 40s days and low 20s nights…one of the least messy breakups ever!

  41. Here near PA’s capitol, it is mostly sunny and 70 degrees. Hard to believe Squaw Valley has enough snow pack to keep the slopes open until July. Hope your snow is gone by then. But the upside is you don’t have to mow. Although you’re probably wishing you could since that would mean the snow has stopped for good and winter’s over.

  42. I’m in Argentina, Jill. And it’s crazy but actually got a cold and rainy autumn right now. Leaves foliage and everything. The last couple of years were not like this, it was more like an annoying humid summer with even 77°F of temperature. So I am really happy to have the colors and cold of autumn back. Here’s hoping winter is even colder!

  43. It is cloudy and rainy here in St Clair Shores, Michigan. I live in a suburb of Detroit. :evil: :negative: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  44. Central Idaho and we are getting a mixture of rain and snow today. We live at 4,000 ft and you don’t have to go far to be in the snow. Our snow pack here is 145% of normal. I am hoping it doesn’t all melt at once!!!

  45. High 70’s to low 80’s here in Atlanta. We had almost no winter and no spring. Mother Nature is definitely menopausal!

  46. Here in Southern California, we are having a heat wave, and its supposed to get to 92 tomorrow.

  47. I live in michigan, it’s been rainy and cold. Than we will get a few warmer days. It’s been a strange spring so far.

  48. Here in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, it’s 68 today. Tomorrow though, it’s supposed to get colder and rainy.
