Journal: Wednesday, 12/17/08

► It looks as if our cold snap is broken. Temperature is gradually creeping upward as the night progress. Our forecast calls for messy conditions with temperatures above freezing for the next couple of days. (Overcast, calm and 32ºF/0ºC @ midnight)

► Temperature hovering right at the freezing mark at 4:00 AM. Still overcast and calm.

► Just barely above freezing with no noticeable melting yet. Remaining upright outdoors is still quite a challenge. (Foggy, calm and 33ºF/.5ºC @ 11:00 AM)

► Jo is into spurts of "spring cleaning". No, she isn't such an enthusiastic housekeeper that she just cannot wait until spring for major cleaning projects. On the contrary, let's just say we fell a little behind with housekeeping while heavily engaged in doing shows. Dust bunnies rule!

► Melting ice is beginning to drip off the eaves of the house. (Overcast and foggy, calm and 34ºF/.5ºC @ 1:00 PM)

► Walked up to and around our upper pasture. Not a slick as yesterday, but we still didn't want to venture up the road or down the trail on the pasture's north side. We were surprised by how much more frozen fog was clinging to trees and weeds at that slightly higher elevation.

► Weather seems to be stuck in a perpetual funky mode: Overcast, foggy, drippy, dreary BUT temp slightly above freezing. (33ºF/.5ºC @ 9:00 PM)

► I was wrong about our cold snap being broken. It was only bent a very little. Our temperature hovered within a few degrees of freezing all day.

► Weather Summary: High = 35ºF/1.5ºC. Low = 30ºF/-1ºC. Temperature @ midnight = 33ºF/.5ºC. AM = Overcast ... very light south wind. PM = About the same as during the morning with drizzle beginning near midnight.
