Blink and you miss Spring in the Carolinas! And Virginia apparently!

OK - it's officially summer:

1. I walked into my first spider web of the year this morning.
2. I saw my first spider at work.

3. I pulled out my Fiskars push reel mower (one of the best Amazon deals I ever bought) from its winter weather shroud, anointed it with WD-40 and shaved my lawn down from the jungle that had erupted last week.

4. And now I'm a bit heat sick and going to jump into a tepid shower.

The sky went dark very suddenly and it dropped almost 20 degrees in a couple of hours. We're due for rain.

The weather reports are still mixed for tomorrow. All call for a cooler day, but some are calling for rain. I'll be driving for about 9 hours, so I don't mind cooler, but I'd really rather not be doing all that highway driving in the rain.

That might work for the fenced-in area of our yard (approximately 25 x 50 ft.), but for the entire yard (approximately ¼ acre), even the best of push mowers would kill me. Gotta' have my lawn tractor.

I may not have to pull out the mower at all this year at the rate we are going.

Today: 2C, 1-3cm of snow
Friday: 2C, woohoo! no snow
Saturday: 1C, 10cm of snow
Sunday: -1C, 1-3cm of snow
Monday:-3C, 1-3cm of snow
Tuesday: -3C, 1cm of snow
Wednesday: -5C, 1-3cm of snow

It's about 55 degrees or so. Not Celsius. Nooo, not Celsius, that temperature would be intolerable. So... about 12C?

Huge line of thunderstorms moved through tonight - temps dropped 15 F in an hour - now a pleasant 68 F and drizzling. Heading towards a cool weekend!

I did some looking around for the warmest day of the year up to April 23rd in Regina over the past while. This is what I found...

All temperatures in Celcius.

2013 3.5 9-Jan
2012 26.5 23-Apr
2011 13.6 23-Apr
2010 22.3 18-Apr
2009 24.3 13-Apr
2008 28.6 14-Apr
2007 22.8 17-Apr
2006 23.6 22-Apr
2005 26.0 17-Apr
2004 21.4 4-Apr
2003 23.1 23-Apr
2002 20.2 22-Apr
2001 19.0 18-Apr

According to a news story, it's been the coldest spring in 113 years. Add in more snowfall than ever in my city and I say I welcome the new ice age.

We're having a roller coaster weather week - warm, then rain, then cold, then rain, then warm, then rain, then cold ........

[all these fronts moving through make my head hurt!]

April showers bring May snow showers? Already 2 inches of new snow on the ground here. It could be as much as 10 inches by tonight with a projected low temperature of 29 F and 2 more inches of snow overnight.

^My condolences. As crappy as this place can be sometimes, sun is usually not a problem. This week, all sun, a few bits of cloud and temperatures around normal. This and fall are my favourite times of year for temperatures. 18C is a wonderful temperature.

The weather was too nice for me to come up with a reason not to mow the lawn.
