Cloudy, damp, and windy, so it’ll be a chilly day right here in River City. 36°/2° at present, but the damp makes it feel like 28°/-2°. The high will only reach maybe 44°/6°.

Our fine calm weather has continued so yesterday I managed to get 2 coats of deck (I'm a Kiwi so read "dick") stain on our deck that I had water-blasted (that's gurneyed Digger) the day before.
Sounds.... um... painful. :cheers:

We're pushing 80°F. It's January.

Raiyn needs to share some of the heat. We'll drag along like today for another couple day before heading back to single digits and below zero stuff again by Sunday and early next week. Would love a couple of 50F degree days to break the monotony.

Cool and cloudy. Not getting much snow in the mountains either. This time of year we seriously need it.

Anything above say 70°F is wasted on me, you're more than welcome to it.

Right now it's nice:

This would be preferred:

Take the sled out to the lake, deploy the pop up shelter, set a couple tip ups and see what happens.

OK, box 70F and send it to me. It's 31F now and by Saturday we're looking at more snow and overnight lows below zero again through Monday night. I need a little sun and some warmth.

I'd have been happy to send the excess 11° from yesterday. Of course that'd only get you 42...

I always found the lower angle of the sun easier to deal with than the more direct rays we get here. The ol' retinas take a beating even with a wide brim hat and Transitions ™ lenses.

I have Transitions™ lenses, but the eye doctor really wants me to wear polarized sunglasses when I’m outside. As time has gone on, I can see his point.

Depends on the location on the planet I'm guessing

That low angle of the sun up here mostly means all winter I'll be driving into it at some point at any time of day. Except night time.

Talk about the ol' retinas taking a beating. :rolleyes: I know. You're talking about heat, right? I get that. I hate hot weather. Which is why as a retiree(23 years now) I never contemplated moving down there to FLA or Arizona, where a lot of people I know moved to over the years, or some of them who were affluent enough have Winter homes there.

Well like it or not we are heading for a warmish day here today! 35C maximum!

That however is more typical of late January hereabouts with days in excess of 40 to be expected. It’s been untypically cool here for the 3rd year in a row however, so we can’t complain.

Well, apparently now we can have both.

Ooh, I did not know that. The older doctor in the practice, now retired, wanted me to wear the wraparound NASCAR driver shades for full solar protection, but without spending a fortune on them, I look like, well, a NASCAR fan. The frames the bird sits on over to the left are my third pair of this style, and I’d like to keep them.
