We heard that it might hit Tucson too. I have a lot of plants from the patio in the house and other stuff outside covered, just in case.

Cold here until Saturday, when it will warm up for the rain, then cold again.

In my area of TX, we are expecting... ice, sleet, and freezing rain. BLECH! :yucky: Unfortunately we don't usually get much snow. I spent my early years in the northeast and I really miss snow.

Freeze and winter storm warnings here...........something completely unheard of in Phoenix! But it's still a happy time to celebrate a new year and new beginnings. Happy New Year everyone!

BTW, I'm going to move this over to the Chit Chat section. See you there.

Cold here in WA, low 30's / high 20's but no snow where we are. Plenty of it in the mountain ski resorts, which is making a lot of people happy.

It's currently 20 degrees in my part of Tennessee, but no snow yet! I've been expecting it every time I look outside! Happy New Year everyone!

Wow Casey, I can't remember the last time it snowed in Tuscon. We dodged the snow but it's still bitter cold at 27 out there this morning and after the rain yesterday there's ice on everything. Even after covering them up I think I'm going to lose about half of my plants outside. The poor Palo Verde trees don't stand up to freezing temps very well and there's not much you can do but wrap the trunk and hope for the best. I think my neighbors lost most of their rose garden and everyone's bougainvillea are burnt so badly that they're not recognizable anymore. My friends in Denver are telling me about sub-zero temps in the double digits so I can't complain too much but for us, this is still extreme and unpleasant. Even the Canadian snow birds are complaining that it's too cold!

Gail, my brother is in Yucaipa, he posted pictures of the white stuff. I laughed. It didn't stay long. I told them to keep it there.

Snow is a dirty four-letter word that I don't think we should be using in this forum. - Congratulations. You just became privy to my first joke of the New Year. Ha, ha, ha.

It is 10:08 AM in New Jersey and very sunny; however, I have no idea what the weather will be like in the upcoming days; which is typical if you live in central NJ - and that's no joke.

Here in NM (8000 ft) we woke to snow too! And wow Gail! I grew up and spent much of adult life in Cali on the coast (Lompoc) and only saw snow a couple times near there, amazing!!!!

Julie, we never did get the snow they said was coming. It snowed up on the peaks but down here in the sage desert nothing so far and the sun is out this morning. Fine with me....:p

I am leaving my mom's tomorrow, and it looks like I am leaving in snow and driving into more snow. Good thing I have snow tires.

Barbara, where you live it's silly not to run snow tires. I was really looking forward to playing in the workshop today, but without a heater out there I'm staying put in the house! I turned the slow cooker full of gumbo on so it will be ready for lunch, and my pork roast for tonight is marinating in apples, curry powder and balsamic vinegar.

We have two more nights of temps in the twenties in Tucson. Six nights in less than two weeks! Some kind of record!

My Mom texted me pictures from Scottsdale Az this morning..snow on cactuses..neat and crazy. Here in Utah it snowed on Christmas Eve and has stuck around since. View from front window of new house. It's gloriously hauntingly beautiful, but I'm ready for Spring!

Hope you can catch us up at some point with the pictures.

You know how crazy we all are to "see" everything.

Will you be moved in anytime soon?

I'm guessing you'll have a fabulous studio to work in.

Of course we can't wait for you to get back to building because we love everything you build.
