Wow, pretty cool, snow yesterday and flowers today!
Was the corner of your property floating away?

Not that corner, but the other end of it now has a fine lake! Wonder if trout grew in the lake as fast as the flowers grew under the anchor? :) We have this lake most springs, but I have never seen it cover such a large area!

We should move the anchor down to the lake. I am, however, thinking of selling the anchor. Wouldn't want to have to ship it! When we bought it back in the 50s, we were told that it had fallen on one man, killing him, then when two men tried to lift it off him, one of them had a heart attack and passed away. Our killer 500 lb 19th century anchor!

Happily, though today's forecast called for snow or freezing rain as it cooled back down, we got none!

Northern Wisconsin got a foot of snow last weekend. This is what it has looked like up there all day today. They are expecting another foot of snow when this slow moving storm ends and this map is what it looked like this morning. Hasn't changed in 12 hours time.

They are really thankful for global warming for if that wasn't happening, they'd be getting at least 2 feet of snow today, and once a week through about the end of August, just in time for fall temperatures to set in.  ;)

The bottom snow cover map is from 9 AM today, when the snow started to fall.

Rough.. In the Twin Cities, we got not even a 1/2 inch of snow, but we did get some.

But I heard yesterday that it was -9° F (-22° C) over there a few days ago, in April. That true?

I cannot exactly remember, but I do believe so, John. (-9 F)

Sadily, we got some more snow last night.. Sigh. Although, it is amazing they already cleared this road.

My wife works for a company that has its corporate office in Roseville and she is the one who told me it hit 9 below a few days ago.

As for northern Wisconsin and the UP of Michigan, it's still snowing. 24 hours of steady snow. Here is this morning's radar weather map showing the size of that storm. Marquette, Michigan, should just about be buried right now.

The snow has dissipated and moved north but what it left was a much deeper snow cover. Two feet of snow on the ground in the middle of April. The snow cover photo above is the before, this is the after, unless it's updated overnight.

Here in Southeastern Wisconsin, we have had 65 degree weather for the past week, and everywhere I go it just looks and feels like summer! Everywhere except for my front porch, which had two inches of ice on it until this morning!

It's the morning of May 5th, 2014, and it's still snowing in the northern parts of the US. High today is the Milwaukee area today is the low 40s F. It's been a long, cold seemingly never ending winter for sure.

Oh you cheese-heads, we loved our 63 degree day, today. A beautiful day for our doubleheader baseball game.

Yep, that blue stuff in southern Aberta and northern Montana is SNOW ! ! ! ! ! ! !

We in south western BC (Vancouver) like to laugh at Alberta whenever we get the chance and I would have been laughing if I didn't spend the entire day on a ladder painting and getting sunburnt!
