The difference outside from yesterday morning…..and this morning!!!
What a difference but boy was it raining something fierce last night and the wind was howling…….I even had to get a couple of rain buckets for inside the house!!!
It has definitely been some strange weather here in our little part of the world here in Montana the past few months. We were riding Motorcycles off and on into January and with unseasonably warmer weather and no snow (30-35 + degrees)!!
Then a cold snap with below zero temperatures plus the windchill hit with bits of snow here and there but not much that stuck around here in the valley……until the past few weeks that is!!! We have had blizzards and avalanches with road closures all within the last 7 days!!!!
The above picture is one of the snowball fight barricades that was built over the weekend by a bunch of teenagers…..it did look more impressive before the rain storm last night but this is what’s left this morning.
Yesterday our driveway and walkway was like an ice rink on top of the snow…..
This morning, our driveway and walkway…….full of crunchy yet soft slush. What was hard snowpack yesterday is no more!!
Weather forecast for the week is rain/freezing rain the next 3 days and all week is suppose to have highs in the 40’s………..this means lots of melting!!! This morning March 4, 2013 approx. 7am temperature on our deck….
There may be some motorcycle riding in the near future if this warmth keeps up…….,maybe this weekend or next week…..we shall see!!!!!!
Have a wonderful day……..Spring and Summer will soon be here!!!
