Wow! We moved from Prescott Valley last year, as I recall it was already warm this time then usually. We hit the mid 80s here in Central NY yesterday. Currently 72.

I too though, am done with winter.

Twilight zone...

You've actually been transported to NW MT and brain washed into thinking you're still in AZ.

Pfffft. I'll bet its been worse here. It's 35 here and snowing. We haven't had much more than a week without snow since January. Most snow since I moved here in 94 by far. They're calling for 8 to 18 today through tomorrow. Yay.

10" or so of snow coming for us by the end of tomorrow. I hate the heat, so I'm not complaining.

2018 I was on scaffold painting the exterior of the house in late February - it then took 18 weeks to finish, as either I was travelling or the weather was shit on the weekends

2019 we have had shit weather since winter began, not even warm enough to consider painting yet (I have some trim work to do), did manage to get most of the wife's new garden built - 4' retaining walls, crushed granite, 20 yds planters mix, greenhouse structure assembled, then we had snow yesterday morning, and cold windy weather all day. Thank goodness, because this morning we had 2" of snow on the ground, and had the project been on schedule she would have planted on Saturday and lost all the plants on Sunday night

Time to move somewhere warm and green

We're roasting out east. 93-98° for two weeks straight, no end in sight with next week more of the same. I was working outside Saturday and got so hot I had the chills.

same here, 32-40 raining or snowing depending on the temps. Heard there was 10-12" of snow in Deadwood over the weekend.

and crap looking at the forecast now we might get 8" of snow tomorrow?

Atleast the ground has warmed up.

Woke up this morning and it was 40°. I just looked outside and it’s snowing and the weather station is showing right at 32°. Yesterday the prediction was 1-3” of snow and right now we are under a winter weather advisory with 8-12” of snow forecast. I do love winter and am not yet sick of it.

I've had my wood stove going last couple of nights in NW MT, in the upper 30's at night, and a balmy 50ish daytime. Plenty of snow left on the mountains.

It's 90° here (in the shade), humid as fuck and the mosquitoes are out and ravenous.

If you believe yahoo weather, 90°F / 57% RH feels like 97°
