      Cold enough outside to keep lulu’s in the house all day. She is conked out on her floor pad right now. Snoring.

      Might rain later.

      Pretty dry out here though.

      Sometimes I drive a crooked road to get my mind straight.
      I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute off it.

        As you can see, it’s up to 49 degrees now, but it’s MUCH cooler than
        it was earlier this week, and we have a cool forecast ahead; still
        MUCH warmer overall than it ever was in February in either Michigan
        or New Hampshire!

        I see that @rokytnji also has much cooler than normal weather;
        neither of us is likely to see much – if ANY snowfall; we didn’t
        get any last year either. In December a year or two ago we
        experienced the first single digit temperatures I’ve personally
        witnessed here, but it has been mild in the cool seasons ever
        since then.

          It REALLY cooled off here! I just put away my parka, though I didn’t put it in storage,
          so it has to come back out if I go out again in the next couple of days.

          I think that @rokytnji didn’t want me to have to experience the much cooler weather,
          so he reminded his weather friends to send this weather EAST; well, we got it Rok!

          It is STILL a lot warmer than it is elsewhere, so I can manage a few cooler days;
          it won’t be much longer and we will be seeing buds on the plants as Spring approaches,
          but it may take a few more weeks for this to happen!

            It was only 31 °F degrees when I awoke this morning; at least it’s warming up a little bit now; same for you, though it’s “earlier” where you are Rok.

                Cold today. Warming up tomorrow and rest of week. Getting that time to hang out at the m/c shop.
                Thanks Brian.

                  Glad you like that script @rokytnji; https://www.wunderground.com/weather/us/tx/pecos will give you Wunderground, your location on Wunderground points to the Midland International Air and Space Port Station and is now reporting 40°F; better than earlier!

                    Midland is warmer at night and cooler by day vs my place.

                    wttr picks up my little airport weather broadcast signal

                      What is the specific location of your “little airport weather”? Maybe I can find that too;
                      not all scripts will run everything, but I may be able to cobble something together if I
                      have a precise location of that little spot and then I can see whose service includes it.

                      Back when I lived in Concord, NH I lived on a side street off “Airport Road”, and the
                      small airport there had a weather reporting station, but I don’t think that it made
                      public reports as often as some of the stations, which is why I started looking around.

                      A very long time ago, I believe that Wunderground was originally constructed by some
                      guys in Michigan, possibly near the University of Michigan; today it’s one of several
                      services owned by a large company and I think it’s backed by IBM, but I’m not positive
                      of it. It may be an offshoot of Accuweather; before I found Wunderground I used to use
                      Accuweather; their services are quite good, but again, their reporting intervals and
                      unofficial reporting stations are nowhere near as broad as Wunderground.

                      Plymouth State University in Plymouth, New Hampshire, about 40 minutes North of
                      where I once lived, also has an interesting site, https://vortex.plymouth.edu/.
                      From that site, you can click on the map of various states and get reports, you can
                      get various types of weather maps that meteorologists would understand, and more.
                      They have a few interesting research projects too, such as https://vortex.plymouth.edu/research/meercap/
                      and reports such as https://vortex.plymouth.edu/dept/tutorials/sun/index.html – quite interesting
                      for “amateur” meteorologists like me – my degree was in Computer Science, but
                      one of the gentlemen in the UNIX Engineering Group that I was in also had an
                      interest in this and other information sources; these were not commonly seen
                      back in the nineties, but rapidly gained popularity as more and more people
                      started using computers on a daily basis.

                                  Currently it’s sunny and 22º – it’s almost like a coldish summer day, in the middle of the winter.
