Today is a little bit colder than yesterday. Last night, the temperature dropped down to 17 degrees F. and we had high winds throughout the night. It hasn't warmed up very much and those strong winds have caused some drifting. In spite of all this, our February sunshine is just beautiful Photo:Mine

Is that snow currently on your ground? We have the bright sun as well although we don't have snow which is not a bad thing.

Yes, we have quite a bit of snow, it's too cold for it to melt.

@kobesbuddy Oh you are filled with it. We are going to have a horrible march. I just know it. We have a wonderful winter so far. Basically no snow to deal with.

It all depends upon the latitude where our cities are located, on the globe.

@alberello75 Our city, the weather conditions are affected like 'lake effects' from being so close to Lake Huron. It's pretty much, the same scenario.

@kobesbuddy Well, it could be, but also the presence of mountains behind you (which I do not know if there are), this affects a lot your climate.

In February, we get indirect sun-rays. So, the sunshine doesn't create any heat.

Yes, during January we usually have lots of sunshine, that produces no heat at all:( February? It's sometimes even colder and just as unpredictable.

With strong winds at 17 degrees, I wonder what the chill factor is. It's gotta be below zero.
