Wahoo!! The temperature hit 70 yesterday, with howling winds from the south, then in the evening the temperature dropped and the wind came from the west, bring thunderstorms into our area. This morning, the wind is now sweeping down the plains from the northwest. I set out for work in a steady rain that became mixed with snow. I got ahead of the snow as I got closer to Tulsa, but it's not too far behind. At home, the rain has already turned to snow, and I may be driving home today on snowy roads. Although as hard as the wind has been, this might - literally - blow over quickly. Do you like driving in hazardous conditions? I get a bit of adrenaline rush as I'm zipping along in rainy/snowy/sleety weather, especially if I get smacked by a crosswind. I'm a good driver, so I'm confident (not reckless) when the weather is bad. What about you?

It is 27F in Chicago, would you mind to send me some warm weather? I am tired with winter. Driving in hazardous conditions? I am doing it for last 3 months. I don't like it. It takes forever to drive 2 miles...

I wish I could trade some weather with you. We've had a mild winter, and I don't think it's been cold enough for long enough to wipe out the harmful bugs that are hibernating (or whatever they do in the winter). I want to have a big crop of tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers without having to resort to bug spray.

No, I do not like driving in hazardous conditions.If it were just me on the road it might be different, but a lot of people cannot drive well in those types of conditions and cause accidents.

How many Celsius degrees is 70? Personally, I love anything adrenalin rushy,including driving through a horrible weather,I'm not the one driving though ,my friends that finally got their exams do.I even open up the windows a bit to feel the wrath and cold air going through my spine.Looking forward to our next crazy adventures hehe...
