Nasty day at 46 degrees and rushing wind.  Watch us approach 90 next Wednesday 

Oh and trees -- we have three maples in the back with billions of spinners, and a gigantic thornless honeylocust street tree that someone thought was a good idea with a front yard that's less than 20 feet wide.  :fulltilt:  That thing will soon drop tons of tiny flowering junk that accumulates everywhere and turns into a mud-like mess when it rains.  Then in fall it's billions of tiny leaves get everywhere and into everything.  Wish I addressed it when we first moved in and it was small, and made it look like an "accident."

now that the wind has died down, we are holding steady at around 46/47.  There will not be a freeze here in urban parts of the DC metro.

Dw, DC will probably hit 90 by the middle of next week- equally as stupid.

29.7 for a low here, no record, that is 26 degrees from 1982. The 47.8 high was also not a record 'cool max', as both 1984 (42) and 1986 (46) still hold. A few cirrus in the sky showing a little warmth returning upstairs leading to a warmer day today. Yesterday had several rounds of graupel and mixed rain and graupel showers between noon and 6 pm here.

Me & Mrs. V, trying to figure out how to temporarily disable "schedule" mode (which itself required an engineering degree) and engage "manual" mode on the new wi-fi thermostat...

Got down to "only" 32 last night...thank heaven.

Down to 33 yesterday and 32 this morning in Burke. Chilly, but I'm fine with it as long as the comes out and it's relatively short-lived. And there's little wind.

I only learned this week that the "oak moss" (my name!) are called "catkins" -- and I forgot about the gutter messes they cause. We got those gutter screens years ago, which have helped immensely. And I feel your pain -- the back patios look even worse, as there are congealed catkin/spinner tumbleweeds and clumps everywhere. Only another week or two until all this crap comes down and I can pull out the power washer...oh, JOY.  :D 

We've affectionately referred to them as "pollen bombs."  We used to have laurel oak catkins everywhere when we lived in Fairlington, but now we're subjected to the circular beech pollen bombs from the multiple 80+' tress in our neighbors' yards. They're beautiful trees, but they shed catkins in the spring; then the squirrels start eating the nuts and dropping the (pointy) casings in the summer; in the autumn, the remaining nuts fall; finally, in winter and early-spring winds bring down the remaining casings.

I've always wondered what that is!  It's literally tumbleweeds everywhere and they keep getting stuck to our Scottish Terrier's underside/fur since she's the traditional Scottie look.  So I'm constantly picking them up off the floor inside when they fall off her.
