    Ice storm was worse than previously thought, caused a lot of trouble (lost tree limbs, cars slid all over the place, etc.). We escaped serious damage, others did not (fallen trees, power outages, car wrecks).

    Cats came through very well, tails high. Wife and I are exhausted.

    Cool

    Photo my wife took just minutes ago of a high-altitude ice-crystal ring around the sun. Seen from Greenville Co., SC.

    Another cold day tomorrow, then the warming over the weekend with rain.

    It is up to a balmy 0 C with some rain and snow for the couple of days, maybe I will go for a quick walk in the woods later.

    Looks like a mess coming our way, snow to the north of us and rain to the south of us and a mix in the middle. Luckily most of the Christmas shopping is done and if I can't get to a city I can pick gift cards to finish.

    More doggone wind. We just had a big wind storm a couple of days ago, during which everyone to the west lost power. The wind is the very worst thing about the wonderful place where I live.

    A few years ago I went into Google Earth and started drawing a line out from my house, through the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and on to see where the next significant land was. I'd been expecting Japan, but it was Taiwan.

    Oddly enough, our worst windstorms seem to come not from the Strait, but from the South. That's what's happening tonight.

    Got about 20 cm of snow over the last day and a half. This morning the driveway got plowed and moved the car soon I will have to bring in some wood.

    Sunny and cold start but warming this afternoon and rain tomorrow, going Christmas shopping in the city, the home of Canada's worst driver this year.

    I'm getting really tired of all the windstorms we've been having. We're on about the fourth one.

    Rain and more rain so much that we actually got a heavy rain warning.

    The end of two days of heavy rain . Nearly 2 inches , which will threaten flooding of some low lying areas.
    On the bright side, we'd have seen nearly two feet of snow had it been cold enough.
    We'll get a dusting of snow on Christmas eve, and that's that

    MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL and to all a good night !

    Stuff that bugs me: I can pretty easily to convert C to F in my head as long as it's positive. Negatives get me all messed up, so I had to use a conversion program on my phone to get -47F. Yike! And then I put in -22 instead of -44 and got -7.6F. Still pretty darn cold. I've lived in the Puget Regions about 50 years and have never seen below about 15F.

    Meanwhile, we seem to have another windstorm going on. I'd almost prefer cold. Almost.

    About 0 C and clear. Today probably do a little reading and a few other things got the place to self for a bit because someone wanted to go to do more shopping.

    It was back up to -4C this morning. It really has been a mild and frankly, lame, lead-up to winter here. Perhaps I should be thankful that I haven't had much snow to clear.

    About those temperature conversions... we ditched the Fahrenheit scale about 44 years ago. There was a one year period where all radio broadcasts of temperatures had to be in both F and Celsius scales, and then it was C only. I long ago lost my sense, or feel, for the F scale, and so I now find myself converting it to C when I'm curious about an American city's reported temperature.

    For distance scales, I am still as comfortable using feet and inches as I am using centimetres and metres, but if I hear or read something reported in miles and really want to "know" what that distance is, I convert it to km. Funny how that is.

    A few dry days in the 40'sF this week with showers returning soon enough. Nite temps around 30F. No white Xmas after our early Dec surprise southerly whiteout. I would like to think that winter is over now, nyuk.

    Cold and clear, gotta get some kindling for one wood stove that is not going and do a few other things.

    An annoyingly warm Christmas in London this year. I'm flying to Edinburgh soon and it's not too cold there either. Shame, I wanted some snow.

    The forecast is for 1C by 7:00 AM. At least I won't freeze.
