    How's the weather at your place? - February 2019

    Welcome to the February Weather Thread!

    The full moon in February is on the 19th and called the Full Snow Moon due to the typically heavy snowfall of February. This name dates back to the Native American tribes who resided in the northeastern United States before and during Colonial times, when the Moons were a way of tracking the seasons. And the Native Americans were right to give February’s Moon this name: on average, February is the USA’s snowiest month, according to data from the National Weather Service.

    Hunting becomes very difficult, and so some Native American tribes called this the Hunger Moon. Others called this Moon the “Shoulder to Shoulder Around the Fire Moon” (from the Wishram people of the Pacific Northwest), the “No Snow in the Trails Moon” (Zuni, of the Southwest), and the “Bone Moon” (Cherokee, of the Southeast). The Bone Moon meant that there was so little food that people gnawed on bones and ate bone marrow soup.

    Ended January with just 3.31" of rain, lowest monthly total in 11 previous months.
    Ground starting to firm up a little, finally.

    Got a shot of hitting 70* Friday if we get a little sun.

    Warmer

    We had a low of -26* yesterday with wind chills around -40*.

    It’s currently -9* with little to no wind. Forecasted high of 15* today. Saturday supposed to be in the low 30’s. Sunday in the 40’s.

    Not sure what’s up with the crazy weather . We’re going from near record cold to near record warmth.

    Overnight warm up

    Before I went to bed last night it was 17 and the temp had been steadily dropping. When I got up it was 24 so a big change overnight. I'm good with it and looking forward to getting above freezing today.

    Low this morning was -4* at around 4am - up to -2* now. A warming trend in the works - supposed to have a high of 19* today.

    Sunday through Wednesday it’s supposed to be in the 40’s and overnight lows staying above freezing. From mud to solid ice and back to mud....??

    Maybe my driveway will get a reset so to speak - would be nice to see gravel again....

    -13oF this morning, light snow overnight and still around this morning, yesterday brought another 4" of snow.

    Now the forecast 2/2 28o Freezing rain, 2/3 40o Rain, 2/4 44o Rain. This is absurd

    Warmed up overnight here. Was 5 at at midnight last night and 14 this morning at 5:30. Some flurry stuff going on now. High today of 21. High near 60 on Tuesday they say.

    The stoker has been running non stop for a few days now putting a big dent in the coal pile. There is plenty left to last through the heating season though. The stoker has provided 98% of the heat with the propane furnace only kicking on a couple times in the early mornings to add BTU's. Lost count on the buckets used this past week but easily 100lbs / day.

    The church filled up their propane tanks last week, I was surprised it was only $1.50 / gallon.

    It's a heatwave......only -2 here today....It's amazing what one can become used to.

    The wild life have been eating food like crazy. I have also seen 4 birds now lying dead on top of the snow, almost as if they have frozen to death during the extreme wind chills, etc.

    Actually, the temps aren't that bad without the wind cutting you in half.

    Now, the urgent matter is digging out our storm drains and moving snow piles off the roads and restoring the roads back to normal width. Due to the snow, we have about 12 feet less of road width because of the snow banks. Temps are forecast to be as high as 40's on Sunday or Monday and then back down to 18 by Thursday. If the piles aren't moved, we will have massive piles of ice which will remain until spring. Plus the future snow fall will make the road narrower and narrower.....down to one lane eventually.

    -4° right now, which is up from -12°, the low for the day. We are into our second sunny day in a row, with a high of 14° expected. We've had little to no wind the last two days as well, and not one flake of snow.
