It cooled down a little here in Arizona and we are loving it, too bad it doesn't stay in the 70s & 80s all year round.

Great photos!

Here in eastern Washington state, (The ''other'' Washington :) ) it's still clawing it's way out of winter. The temps are averaging 15 degrees below normal. It's dipped below freezing a few nights, and the cherry farmers are worried there may be no crops this year. The studded tires restriction has been extended for a month. Just days ago, an avalanche just about took out a family on Interstate 90 on Snoqualimie Pass, and shut down the freeway. The snow pinned their SUV against a guardrail after swiping it across all the lanes.

The day before yesterday, it started out sunny. (Albeit 45 degrees) Then, by the afternoon, it actually SNOWED. It melted right away, but still...

I built a new gazebo on the back deck, but so far it's been hammered by 60 MPH wind gusts, and the only way we've enjoyed sitting in it so far is while wearing parkas. :)

I also bought another outboard motor (newer, more HP) for my Porta-Bote to replace my 1964 Mercury 3.9HP. So far, the new one has only been run in a barrel full of water. In years past, I've already been out in the boat by now a couple of times. Now? It's still folded up and hanging in the rafters of the workshop. Even if it warmed up, the stinking wind has been blowing for MONTHS. It's only died for like two hours at a time. I can't go boating in wind whipped white caps on the Columbia River. (Well, I could, but I'd have to leave a suicide note behind. :) )

All I can say is: WARM UP ALREADY!!! UNCLE!!!

holy crap it stinks to be you guys bro. I guess each area has it's perks to live in and obviously yours is not warm weather. But I bet the fishing is pretty good up there I know it is in Canada. The bass here are still on there bed and not yet biting but should be hitting soon.
