    46 (7.77C) 16 mph wind from the SW with possible gusts up to 40 mph. Feels like 31 (-0.55C).
    Barometric pressure 29.73.
    Bright sunshine with 10 mile visibility.

    Though the neighborhood looked bad yesterday, we were the lucky ones. Saw hundreds of pics from around the area of places under, up to, tens of feet of water. The shelters at local park were completely underwater. Some sections of roads that were near creeks were completely taken out. Tornadoes in surrounding counties.

    Now the temps are rising slightly along with barometric pressure. I can hear the drip off the roof and see clumps of snow falling off of tree branches.
    Will freeze again tonight then temps in the low 50's Sunday.

    That last is an ancient Chinese curse, may you live in interesting times. This is an interesting winter making wide day/night temperature excursions across the freezing mark and unusually wet.What I'd like to know is what changes are happening in parts of the world not normally heard from like Russia, China, and Southeast Asia. A few years ago the sharp rise in the cost of computer parts, HDDs in particular was caused by unusual monsoon flooding that destroyed many factories. As a rail fan I saw and downloaded many pictures of railways under water and trains slogging through. Around the same time the mighty Mrs. Pee Pee flooded the Midwest and U.S. trains also learned to swim.

    Then there are the hated greenies, rather like green heads, the infamous Jersey Shore biting flies, that couldn't make up their minds about global cooling and the ice age coming, then global warming and desertification, now it's climate change and they're blaming it on US! They complain we can't see past our noses re that cartoon, but what about THEIR noses when there is great and undeniable evidence the Earth is a dynamic planet and climate has been changing since its creation. Yes, our climate IS changing still and again will cause mass migration of Man and beast. The biggest lesson the White Man must learn is stop fighting Mother Nature that only brings her wrath, live With her and adapt TO her like the Red Man had been living in harmony with her until the invasion of 1492. I once heard a Native American say "Before the coming of the White Man we could drink out of any river." There once were happier times, so stop complaining, stop fighting it, along with climate change we need attitude change!

    That 40s style cartoon commentary fits my gripe well also, he's not the only Limbaugh listening jerk I've known and forgotten. The name I use when referring to the overfed loudmouth is "Russian Limburger" an odoriferous big cheese. The comment in the lower right fits the White Man's attitude, ignorance is bliss until the price of stupidity comes due. When the storm comes the willow bends and survives while the stiff oak breaks.

    Fence blew over, some plastic covering of the shed blew away, and the Imax 2000 top broke off, new spare one on the attic will be put in place when the weather is a lot better, about 600 Euro damage insurance will pay up.
