It’s a “snowmageddon”... Pacific Northwest trees falling on power lines, no electricity for 3 days now, no heat, cooking on a Coleman stove, building gigantic snow bunnies, running a propane generator to charge all our, and our neighbors’, phones, tablets, computers, and battery packs.

It's -15 degrees here in Southern Ontario and my new Yulong Guo Chamber Concert is being shipped as I write. I'm not planning to even open the crate for two days to allow it to acclimatise to our home.

I think the polar vortex has finally gone! It's been a balmy -10°C now...with promises of 4°C coming soon, which means....

The coast of Washington state in the US is cool (38° F) and sunny today. We've had below normal temps this winter, and below normal precipitation.

Well, here in the East Midlands of England it is...fairly nondescript. Chilly-ish, breezy. About 9 degrees celcius I think. It was quite pleasant amd sunny earlier. A bit spring-like, but nothing special. Nothing to write home about. We get excited by winds of about 47mph here, which requires us to make such mild preparations as dismantling the net around the trampoline. We did have about a millimetre of snow yesterday morning. That was quite exciting as well...

After a winter of extreme cold, extreme cold and frequent ice storms it is now warming up. Tomorrow will be 6o degrees with rain. Oh, joy. Extreme flooding now. I am reminding myself that this sort of weather is normal in Northern Canada, Alaska, northern Scandinavia and Siberia. Maybe Mongolia. Not here— nit to thid degree— but what can we do?

We are getting cool rain (50F) on the coast of the Pacific NW, US. After an unusually cold February/March, we are having "normal" (average) weather conditions here.

Hot and humid !!! It was 82 degrees F at 5 am this morning! ....the high today will be in the mid-to-upper 90's...and the air feels so thick and balmy that you could cut it with a knife. ....and our downstairs air conditioner unit has quit. Fortunately, the upstairs unit.....where the bedrooms are.....is working. We're trying not to cook much until the new unit is installed, to minimize heat in the kitchen. ....lots of sandwiches. Yesterday I suggested to my wife that she move the toaster oven out on the back porch and bake a potato.....to keep the heat out of the kitchen. ....and when I got home, I grilled a steak.

For the near future, there's no relief in sight. The heat index levels have been 100+ for a week or so, and it's just supposed to get hotter for the next few days. The weather person is predicting a heat index of around 115-120 by Sunday.
