It’s our seesaw season. We might get some really cold days …. well, cold to me at least …. but mostly the temperatures will be all over the place for a while For now we are supposed to be in the high 50s and low 60s(f) but that can change in a heartbeat. Right now it’s cloudy and we are getting rain. It’s not really cold though, for me that’s great. Thank you whoever you are that send us this rain. Are you getting sunshine today?

We got some good rain these past couple days - but as mentioned before, it wasn't good for those having to deal with flash floods, mud/landslides - especially where those fire areas were. And today - it's clear as can be - the sun is out and no rain clouds in sight . . . in fact I layered up and I am burning up! See saw is right!

Wow, mud slides again. I swear, if CA isn't fighting fires it's mudslides or flash floods. Wouldn't it be nice if there were a normal to be gotten out of all this.

@rebelann If only the rain would come to put out the fires - that would be great! We know too well that after the fire, it's the rain that makes that burnt out land dangerous. And so weird to think that the sun is fully out now - 80s now - it makes the whole recent mudslide/flashfloods seem so unreal!

Oh wow, you're already in the 80s @much2say it's still in the 60s here but it's not as cold at night anymore. I swear, the US has had a massive amount of disasters recently and then I see charities wanting money to help people in other countries, we're not exactly rich here.

Yeah, it's going to be in the 20s the next couple nights and the days aren't going over 45 ... to me that's freezing. Heck, even Ally doesn't want to go out but I know she has to pee, poor thing.

@rebelann yes we are flying down and back and will be gone two weeks. Right now I wish it was a month...but after seeing the weather everywhere in the States I wonder if Florida will be warm enough for us.

The only bad thing about either Florida or here is the high heat in spring and summer. The heat here is not as bad as what Florida gets because we don't get the humidity but still, 100+ can be hard to take for some. No wonder the ancient American Indians always moved in spring and fall.

we have that heat here too years ago when I fist move to Florida it was May the summer heat was nothing like Ohio I guess because of being so close to the ocean it did not seam as bad..But I was young back then I bet it would be worse on these old bones now

Phoenix has climatically changed over the decades. I remember reading about how hot and dry it was most of the time back in the 1970s and now it's much more humid plus it gets more rain than it used to.

@rebelann It is much more humid here thank goodness but it is still very very dry, so dry it feels like walking into an oven. It has been so warm this winter, I am not used to that.

We were but the prediction of 50s and 60s went out the window yesterday when we didn't even crest 45 and tonight it's supposed to get down to 21 ..... I wish those weather people would get it right more often.

I think our entire year here is see saw season. The weather is just always all over the place. It is warming up here the past few days. Snow is starting to melt a little so I’m happy.

Buuurrrrr, snow is not my idea of fun anymore, I'd rather just have what we get as far as winters go. I sure hope that melting snow doesn't become ice overnight.

So you're in that region of the US that gets a lot of really cold weather in winter, right? I hope you'll get sunshine for a while.

We have 50 degrees, but no sunshine. 50 degrees is unseasonably warm for January here.

I hope that's a good thing but it could also mean that the insects usually killed by the cold won't die like they should. It is supposed to be a mild winter here which so far it is but I worry that this coming spring will be a whole lot hotter than expected. We've gotten triple digits in late May before.
