It’s weird. I hate mud season when it’s mud season. It’s no more welcome when it’s an add-on surprise mud season.

Tied for a couple of highs last week in the low-mid eighties and projected again this week as well. Looking forward to a full month without air conditioning, but we're not quite there yet.

A week ago we had temps below zero, with -15F wind-chill.

Friday it was 30F we got our first real snow, a big ole 10"-20" of wet, heavy stuff in the south metro area (14" at my house).

Today it's 44F and sunny. My gravel driveway is a mess.

By Wednesday they're predicting 52F and THUNDERSTORMS. In Minnesota. Two weeks before Christmas. Then it's all going to freeze this weekend.

Next week we're gonna be in the 20's again.

Mud, mud, glorious mud
Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood
So follow me, follow
Down to the hollow
And there let us wallow in glorious mud

and high 50's for the remainder of the week. Last week we had just a touch of snow.

I see that NH ski areas are operating, but only because of snowmaking capability. They need a good jolt of that "white gold". My skiing days are over, but I hope things pick up quickly for those anticipating this wonderful sport. A lot of people and businesses live or die by what they make in these important four months.

Still love it, skiing or not. Let it snow!
