Frost and Snow

May 15th, 2014 at 12:10 pm by under Bill's Blog, Weather

tulips snow    We have a chance of a little scattered frost in a few spots over the next 3 nights.  That’s dependent on clearing skies and calm to very light winds.  The morning run of the NAM (caribou) gives G.R. a low of 32.1° tonight (Thurs. night), 31.7° tomorrow night and 31.5° Sat. night.  Those numbers are a 1-2° warmer than previous runs of the model.  I’m waiting on the rest of the morning run data.  Snow is certainly possible in parts of Upper Michigan.  The Marquette NWS says:  “NORTH WINDS ON  EDGE OF SFC-H85 LOWS MAY ALLOW FOR EXPANSION OF PRECIP AS FAR WEST  AS NCNTRL UPR MICHIGAN. FORECAST SOUNDINGS INDICATE THAT AS PRECIP  WOULD BEGIN, TEMPS. WILL FALL INTO THE MID 30S AND SNOW WOULD BE THE  MAIN PTYPE. SNOW ACCUMS WILL BE HELD DOWN BY WARMER GROUND TEMPS AND  SINCE THIS IS OCCURRING DURING THE DAY…BUT WILL NOT BE SURPRISED  TO SEE AN INCH OF SLUSHY SNOW ON GRASSY SURFACES BY EVENING OVER  EAST AS STRONGER LIFT/DYNAMIC COOLING MAY OUTWEIGH THESE OTHER  FACTOR…MOVING INTO TONIGHT,WIDESPREAD PRECIP…MAINLY IN THE FORM OF  SNOW…WILL BE ONGOING OVER NORTH CENTRAL INTO EAST HALF OF UPR  MICHIGAN AS SHORTWAVE/LARGER SCALE ASCENT IS LIFTING THROUGH…AREAS FROM KEWEENAW TO DELTA COUNTY WOULD SEE AROUND  1 INCH OF SNOW TONIGHT…WHILE HIGHER TERRAIN OF NCNTRL IN BARAGA  AND MARQUETTE COUNTIES COULD END UP WITH 2 TO 3 INCHES…MAYBE 4  INCHES...THERE ARE  STILL NO INDICATIONS OF SUSTAINED ABOVE NORMAL TEMPS. SETTING UP IN  THE NEXT WEEK TO 14 DAYS.”

    I have a temp of 43.5° here with some mist falling. I see Benton Harbor is only 37°, and South Haven is only 38° right now…brrr! I’m glad that I haven’t put my snowmobile jacket away yet because it looks like I’ll need it tomorrow night and Saturday night at the races.

    1. GunLakeDeb says:

      Yep – I dragged my winter jacket back out, to go watch our oldest grandson play lacrosse tonight. I hope this drizzle stops before then – it’s miserable.

      1. Travis Ulberg (West of Martin, Allegan County) says:

        In my opinion this weather is as bad as it gets. Cold, windy, rainy, and muddy.

        1. fixxxer says:

          Id like to know whats causing all of this. Woodtv better get to explaining to people soon. Its the talk of the town at least today.

          Hell most of my companies seasonal summer accounts up north may not open if things dont improve. Not good for anyone.

        2. Mark (East Lansing) says:

          God.

  2. Barb says:

    My husband just passed through Marquette on his way to Duluth and said there is a lot of ice still on Lk. Superior but no snow on the ground.

  3. fixxxer says:

    Just horrible.

    1. GunLakeDeb says:

      I totally agree. Days like this make us really appreciate weekends like last weekend….

      1. Mark (East Lansing) says:

        +1

  4. Kevin. w says:

    So cold summer hot winter coming.

    1. fixxxer says:

      We dont know that. Might warm up the later half of summer into the fall. But yeah may 15th and this? Not a good sign. I pray this isnt going to be the new standard.

  5. Travis Ulberg (West of Martin, Allegan County) says:

    I can’t even believe I’m saying this in mid May, but the wind chill at South Haven is 29°! They are having a nice December day. And I just checked our rain gauges, and we have received 2.2″ since late Sunday which is my rainiest stretch so far this spring.

  6. dereks says:

    I posted this once already but I thought it was worth posting again.The United Nations Environment Program aims to dramatically increase its role in running the world according to nebulous environmental principles, according to a strategic plan that will be presented to the U.N. General Assembly this fall.

    The principal objective of the plan is to “catalyze a transition” to a radical new global green economy, based on “low-carbon, low-emission, resource-efficient and equitable development”—a theme that will dominate the opening of the General Assembly in September, and culminate in yet another U.N.-sponsored summit of world leaders a year later, to endorse what the organization calls its “post-2015 development agenda.”

    ADVERTISEMENT

    Among other things, the document calls for UNEP to ramp up efforts to partner with non-government organizations and corporations to help “catalyze change among [U.N.] member states” on environmental issues; install principles of “ecosystem management” and “environmental sustainability” into all levels of national, regional and local planning; and making liberal use of UNEP national support committees around the world to lobby for use of its “services and products.”

    CLICK HERE FOR THE DOCUMENT

    The “strategic framework,” as the document is titled, makes clear that UNEP now sees itself as the chief international coordinator of a new environmental order, with the intention to “catalyze transformational change and leverage impact” on a global scale.

    Among other things, “UNEP will strengthen its leadership in key United Nations coordination bodies and lead efforts to formulate United Nations system-wide strategies on the environment,” the plan declares, in order to “maximize the potential for environmentally sound development.”

    The document declares that UNEP will try to increase its influence in the real world through promotion of “government policy reform, changes in private sector management practices, and increased consumer awareness”—including, bizarrely “taking into consideration gender differences”– as a means to “reduce the impact of economic growth on resource depletion and environmental degradation.”

    “UNEP will strengthen its leadership in key United Nations coordination bodies and lead efforts to formulate United Nations system-wide strategies on the environment,” the plan declares, in order to “maximize the potential for environmentally sound development.”

    The document says UNEP will try to increase its influence in the real world through promotion of “government policy reform, changes in private sector management practices, and increased consumer awareness (taking into consideration gender differences) as a means to reduce the impact of economic growth on resource depletion and environmental degradation.”

    The tools it will use include “conducting scientific assessments; providing policy, planning and legislative advice … facilitating access to finance; undertaking pilot interventions and promoting the integration of these approaches through national development; fostering climate change outreach and awareness-raising; [and] knowledge sharing through climate change networks.”

    Other services it hopes to provide include “national economic assessments, guidance on fiscal and trade policies, market-based and legislative instruments, and national sustainable consumption and production action plans.”

    In short, a one-stop service for pushing the global green economy into being.

    UNEP also intends to help and encourage countries to put new teeth in their environmental laws, and blend environmental strategies with anti-poverty programs—without, however, providing much in the way of detail about how to make the latter, in particular, happen.

    In all, the plan heralds a major increase in the heft and authority of a relatively small (2014-2015 budget: about $630 million) U.N. organization that little more than three years ago was considered a major administrative and financial mess.

    That reputation was hardly burnished last winter, when UNEP’s “strategic alliance” with authorities in Vladimir Putin’s Russia for the greening of the Sochi Winter Olympic Games did little or nothing to prevent a huge environmental debacle.

    Nonetheless, UNEP’s plan says it will continue to use such “strategic partnerships with Member States, other stakeholders and entities within the United Nations system” to achieve results “significantly larger than what UNEP could achieve operating on its own.”

    (UNEP signed one such agreement, its first-ever memorandum of understanding with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, in February 2011.)

    CLICK HERE FOR THE MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING

    UNEP’s partnership strategy echoes a trend within the U.N. as a whole, as the global organization recognizes the reality that rich countries are hitting the limit for directly paying the tab for a still-expanding array of U.N. funds, agencies and programs that have all-too-often failed to produce advertised results.

    The partnership strategy, as articulated by U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, is intended to put the U.N. in “a standard-setting role that no other actor can play”—as well as tap into trillions of dollars in financial and other resources that no-one intends to place in the hands of the U.N.

    The trouble is that its overall partnership goals, like those of UNEP, remain grand-sounding but vague.

    In partial answer to the problem, UNEP proposes that it also play a stronger role in environmental law-making, “ in particular those addressing the goals, targets and commitments from United Nations processes”—such as the “post-2015” process that will be launched this September.

    A major reason for that assertiveness is that UNEP, which began its existence as an outgrowth of the much bigger United Nations Development Program, claims a new mandate emerging from the last U.N. summit in Rio in 2012, to expand its role as “the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda.”

    As one result, its previous 58-nation Governing Council has been expanded into a United Nations Environmental Assembly (UNEA) that includes all 193 U.N. member states. The move is intended to give decisions by the new body much greater international legislative force, though any measures it decides must still be endorsed by the U.N. General Assembly.

    UNEA’s first biennial session will be held in Nairobi starting on June 23, and is intended to be huge environmental cheerleading session, with “more than 1,200 participants, including environment, ministers, government delegates and representatives of major groups and stakeholders,” according to the UNEP website.

    How well the global environmental agenda-setter succeeds after that will be judged when its ambitious strategy comes before the U.N. General Assembly in September.

      What a waste of people, time, and money… We’re not going to die. Taking care of the environment is important but this is just too much. Most green policies have failed, especially overseas, costing countries money and causing energy disasters. http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20140509/OPINION01/305090004#ixzz31j49T8hO
      I don’t trust those people and would not feel safe under their jurisdiction. CO2 is a benefit, not a poison. I wonder how many people will suffer when prices rise, energy runs out, jobs are lost… All under the name of “Saving the Earth” from environmental disaster. There will likely be some good from this, but I can’t see a positive result. The future is looking darker than I thought…

      1. fixxxer says:

        Keep the political BS off here.

        1. DF (SE Mich) says:

          LOL, use your other aliases also then maybe someone will listen.

        2. Rocky (Rockford) says:

          fixxxer and his band of ridiculous aliases have ZERO credibility! Who knew?

      2. Brad says:

        “CO2 is a benefit, not a poison.”

        Wow. Aren’t you the creationist who says the Bible is a science book?

        1. Jeremy (Three Rivers) says:

          Yeah. Look up CO2 sometime from someone without an agenda. It’s very beneficial for the environment. Check out ICECAP.US. Some great stuff from scientists without a bias.

        2. Dikehopper (Fennville) says:

          Up to this point in time, Brad, Jeremy is right. Plants take in carbon dioxide (CO2) in order to live, and “exhale” oxygen. Animals, including humans, take in oxygen from plants and exhale carbon dioxide.

          Every time you exhale, Brad, you are putting more CO2 into the atmosphere [grin]. I’ve read of some people who breathe on their house plants, hoping to make them stronger.

          CO2 is pumped into the larger greenhouses to help plants grow better and faster. Plants would die without CO2. So it is not a pollutant or a “poison”. Both plant and animal life depend on CO2.

          So far, the extra CO2 in the atmosphere has added to the “greening” of the planet Earth. Plant life has trived.

          CO2 is also a warming, or “greenhouse”, agent. The global warming theory is that if there is *too much* CO2 in the atmosphere, the Earth would warm too much – with catastrophic consequences.

          It’s all a matter of finding the right balance. Both of CO2 and ideal temperatures.

        3. Brad says:

          That’s all way too simplistic.

        4. Bill Steffen says:

          Yeah, Brad – we need the complexity of the climate magician to “use Mike’s TRICK to HIDE the decline”. Abra-abracadabra! Lo and behold! We have a hockey stick!! Now we can make utility rates “skyrocket” and the connected cronies can get rich! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/08/al-gore-mitt-romney_n_2432534.html

          Like China is going to do a 180 on coal: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:China_Coal_Production.png

        5. Brad says:

          You mean Dr. Michael Mann, Ph.D., Fellow of AMA?

    3. Brad says:

      Kook alert!

    4. Rocky (Rockford) says:

      Write a book next time!

      1. Dikehopper (Fennville) says:

        Rocky said, “Write a book next time!”

        Have you ever read a book? Don’t knock it ’till you’ve tried it.

    5. Ansel says:

      good!

  7. Travis (Oakland County) says:

    Quite the contrast today. Detroit was in the mid 60′s a few hours ago.

    NWS Detroit doesn’t seem to be too concerned with any frost.

    The forecast starting Sunday looks very nice!

    1. DF (SE Mich) says:

      Here it is in NWS speak: :)
      “THERE WILL BE A GOOD BIT OF MID LEVEL SUBSIDENCE DURING THE NIGHT
      AS SE MI LIES BETWEEN THE WEAKENING SHORT WAVE IMPULSE LIFTING
      ACROSS UPPER MI AND THE WELL DEFINED WAVE EXPECTED TO TRACK FROM
      IOWA TO NRN IL. 925MB TEMPS ARE EXPECTED TO DROP TOWARD -1C
      TONIGHT UNDER A DECENT NW GRADIENT. THE DEGREE OF LOW LEVEL COLD
      AIR ADVECTION REMAINS SUPPORTIVE OF DROPPING OVERNIGHT TEMPS INTO
      THE 30S. THE GRADIENT ALONG WITH THE COLD AIR ADVECTION AND
      POTENTIAL FOR LINGERING STRATUS WILL LIKELY SUPPRESS THE DEGREE OF
      DECOUPLING IN THE BOUNDARY LAYER. THIS SUGGESTS HOLDING MIN TEMPS
      ON THE HIGH SIDE OF GUIDANCE AND REFRAINING FROM THE MENTION OF
      FROST AT THIS TIME.”

      1. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

        No frost would be great !!!

      2. reality says:

        By “REFRAINING FROM THE MENTION OF FROST AT THIS TIME” haven’t they effectively mentioned frost?

        1. DF (SE Mich) says:

          This is discussion. It isn’t mentioned in forecasts is their point.

        2. Teughcats (Midland) says:

          :-)

    2. Mark (East Lansing) says:

      Cool, but nice. At least it’ll be dry for awhile.

  8. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

    This whole ” debate ” just turns me off ( not speaking to this blog , in general ) all I here is political posturing and yes from both sides and it just gets old. What happened to actually having a healthy debate , because I would be willing to say most people would like just that. (. And no every scientist is not in someone’s pocket sorry ). I don’t agree with the left throwing out catastrophic events in everyone’s back yard so as to try and hit each and every climate that relates to the 50 states in which we live. ( now it’s personal to our backyard , and not just someone else’s , scare approach. ) And to that point there is no definitive prof that we generate / trigger stronger storms / events do to carbon emition emission. When ever I see ” it ” come on the news wether watching Fox or MSMBC I just change the channel because it’s all crap and the truth lies somewhere ” near ” the middle and neither plan sounds like a good one , wether it be Carbon Tax or those that say ” hey let’s just wait and see what happens ” as I don’t believe that’s viable or smart approach either. Yes , I believe we should slow our roll so to speak and gather more information before moving to extreme measures. Obviously much more to this very topic , but just a small window into the general message and topic.

    1. Ned S. (East of Holland) says:

      I am more concerned about an EMP attack from one of our wacky enemies like North Korea, Iran, etc. I’ve read several books, some fiction, but disturbing nonetheless. The thing that bothers me is that for a couple of billion dollars, we could harden our electrical grid to mitigate the effets of an EMP attack. There is at least one bill stuck in congress that needs to be passed that would move the grid upgrade forward. Read the book called “One Second After” if you’d like to know what life would be like after an EMP attack. Very scary.

  9. Jack says:

    THERE ARE  STILL NO INDICATIONS OF SUSTAINED ABOVE NORMAL TEMPS. SETTING UP IN  THE NEXT WEEK TO 14 DAYS.” !!!!!!!!! Stay CUEDDD!!!!!!

    1. John (Norton Shores) says:

      Looks like we will return to normal temps next week though and after that it doesn’t look like there are any more major cool downs, we can only hope!

      1. Ansel says:

        Big whoop. Normal will do thank you very much.

        1. Jerry Hoag says:

          BIG WHOOP…LOL….THANKS BROTHER JACK!!!!!!! NEEDED THE LAUGH TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2. Jerry Hoag says:

      JACK I KNOW RIGHT?????????? MAN THAT DOENT SOUND GOOD AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BUT WE DO HAVE FORECASTED HIGH BACK INTO THE 70′S BY WEEKS END……….AHHHHHHHHHH BASKING IN THE WARM SUN AGAIN BY THEN….WITH THUNDERSTORMS TOO!!!! MAYBE???? CAN LAY BACK OUTSIDE IN MY SHORTS…..AND SCARE ALL THE NEIGHBORS WITH MY HAIRY LEGS…..LOLOLOLOL.

  10. mr. negative says:

    SE GR – rain overnight into Thursday totaling 6/10 of an inch.

  11. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

    We are going to be on a see-saw for the next month in my opinion , as I don’t think we will see a persistent weather pattern one way or the other for a bit. Short stents either way eventually giving way to some warm events but nothing extreme for long periods and overall moderate temps prevail…

  12. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

    Like DF mentioned above a bit more talk about ” frost ” not being very widespread and a non-issue for most .

    THERE IS CONCERN ABOUT POTENTIAL FOR SOME SCATTERED FROST TO FORM
    TONIGHT AND AGAIN FRIDAY NIGHT. 00Z MET/MAV NUMERICAL GUIDANCE
    NUMBERS ARE RATHER COLD THE NEXT COUPLE OF NIGHTS. HOWEVER
    CONFIDENCE IN THIS REMAINS LOW DUE TO CONCERNS ABOUT LINGERING LOW
    CLOUD COVER.

    LONG TERM…(SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY)
    MID LEVEL HEIGHTS RISE THROUGH THE FORECAST PERIOD. INITIALLY THE
    AIRMASS IS FORECASTED TO BE DRY WITH SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE SETTLING
    IN SUNDAY INTO TUESDAY. STRENGTHENING SOUTHERLY FLOW TUESDAY WILL
    SUPPORT INCREASING MOISTURE LEADING TO CLOUDS. SHOWERS SHOULD
    ARRIVE TUESDAY NIGHT AS DECAYING CONVECTION PIVOTS IN FROM THE UPPER
    PLAINS. THE 1000/500 MB THICKNESS RIDGE IS TO OUR WEST… SO THAT
    DOES SUPPORT THIS SCENARIO. WHILE EARLY TO SAY WITH CONFIDENCE…IT
    DOES LOOK LIKE WE WILL SEE SOME THUNDERSTORMS WEDNESDAY AS
    INSTABILITY IS SHOWN AHEAD OF A COLD FRONT…….

    1. Jack says:

      Hey Darren, Do You still Have Family & Friends in Calf. ?? WOW is all I Can say Watching LIVE Feeds from T.V. Stations Covering The FIRES There. ( New JOB…” FIRE CHASERS” ) !!! Prayers to All The Folks and Firefighters in CALF…….stay CUEDDD……

      1. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

        I do have family in California and friends yes….. Mom and Dad although are in Northern Ca ( Bay Area / rest of extended Nebraska ) Most all my college friends and other friends I made over the 10 + years In the greater San Diego area are smack in the danger zone and I haven’t talked to anyone Today but I’m going to chat with a few friends later. I will tell them people are praying for them and give ya an update on how they are doing after I speak to them , thanks for the thoughts and prayers….. And people do fire chase btw , not like storm chasers …..

        1. Jerry Hoag says:

          Thanks Darren for letting us know…..like we mentioned we will pray for them all……and yes keep us updated, please??? that would be great so we know how to keep praying for them…

    2. Jerry Hoag says:

  15. Jerry Hoag says:

    THE MAIN CHALLENGE WITH THE FORECAST IS THE POTENTIAL FOR CLEARING
    TONIGHT AND THE RISK FOR FROST. SFC PRESSURE ANALYSIS AND PROGS
    SUGGEST THE PRESENCE OF A SFC RIDGE INBETWEEN THE DEPARTING LOW OVER
    LAKE HURON AND THE SFC LOW NEAR MOLINE. PARTIAL CLEARING IS ALREADY
    NOTED IN VSBL SATELLITE IMAGERY INBETWEEN THESE TWO SYSTEMS AND RH
    PROGS SUGGEST MUCH OF OUR AREA WILL BECOME PARTLY CLOUDY TONIGHT.
    SINCE CURRENT TEMPS AT 3 PM ARE ONLY IN THE MID 40S AND GUIDANCE
    LOWS ARE 33-35… WILL ISSUE A FROST ADVISORY FOR THE ENTIRE AREA.

    ADMITTEDLY OUR CONFIDENCE WITH THE FROST ADVISORY HEADLINE IS NOT AS
    HIGH AS WE WOULD LIKE BECAUSE OF UNCERTAINTY IN CLEARING. HOWEVER
    GIVEN THE EARLY STAGES/POTENTIAL HIGH SENSITIVITY OF BUDS AND
    BLOSSOMS WE FELT WE BETTER HAVE AN ADVISORY OUT. THE POTENTIAL FOR
    FROST LOOKS THE SAME OR BETTER ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY NIGHTS.

    RAIN SHOWER POTENTIAL IS RELATIVELY LOW OVER THE NEXT COUPLE DAYS
    DUE TO LIMITED MOISTURE. HOWEVER WE WILL BE UNDER THE COLD POOL
    ALOFT WITH DIURNAL ENHANCEMENT OF CUMULUS LIKELY. ON FRIDAY
    AFTERNOON THE MODELS APPEAR TO BE KEYING ON AREAS SOUTH AND EAST OF
    GRR WHERE WEAK LOW LEVEL CONVERGENCE IS PROGGED… AND WILL BE
    GRAZED BY THE CURRENT LOW NEAR MOLINE. ON SATURDAY THE BEST CHANCE
    OF SHOWERS APPEARS TO BE EAST OF HIGHWAY 131 WITH STABLE LAKE BREEZE
    PROBABLY KEEPING THE COASTAL COUNTIES MOSTLY DRY AND SUNNIER.

    LONG TERM
    (SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY)
    ISSUED AT 330 PM EDT THU MAY 15 2014

    AS THE UPPER LOW MOVES EAST LATE IN THE WEEKEND…SFC HIGH PRESSURE
    WILL BUILD INTO THE GREAT LAKES. THAT WILL PRODUCE A COUPLE OF DAYS
    OF DRY WEATHER WITH INCREASING TEMPERATURES.

    A PLAINS LOW WILL PUSH A WARM FRONT TOWARD LOWER MICHIGAN MID WEEK.
    WE/LL SEE CHANCES FOR TSRA INCREASE AS THE FRONT APPROACHES. THE GFS
    CONTINUES TO PUSH THE FRONT NORTH THROUGH THE CWA WEDNESDAY
    NIGHT/THURSDAY. THE ECMWF…WHILE STILL SLOWER…IS STARTING TO
    FOLLOW THAT TREND ALSO. SO THIS A NORTHWARD TREND IN THE ECMWF AND
    LENDS SOME CREDENCE TO THE GFS WHICH HAS BEEN FAIRLY CONSISTENT.

    WE SHOULD SEE TEMPS CLIMB INTO THE 70S BY MID WEEK AS THE FRONT
    APPROACHES.

    1. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

      This is what yu call a cover your tail ” frost advisory “…! I enjoy the part about being very reluctant to issue do to the lack of confidence but as we know better safe then sorry , yes. It just reads like these are all the reasons why we think it won’t happen…..but ……if this little thing called clearing happens well….Frost . Hehehehe.

      1. Jerry Hoag says:

        Yeah they did issue a Frost Advisory, just shortly after I posted this……lol.

  16. Jerry Hoag says:

    Darren I copied and posted pretty much the same thing as you….lol…..great minds think a like!!!!!! WAHOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

      Great minds do….mine not so great but I’ll let you carry the weight on this one…lol

  17. Jerry Hoag says:

    Well, Jack, Darren I will be back on here later tonight. I have to go and walk the dog, then make dinner and such……you guys have a great evening and we will chat with you all later!!!!!!! BE BLESSED!!!!! KEEP US UPDATED DARREN ON EVERYONE IN CALIFORNIA AS YOU FIND OUT BUDDY!!!!!! TALK LATER!!!!!

  18. DarrenSVRstm ( Cedar S ) says:

    Mann , it’s already down to 41 deg here in Cedar S , soooo if we do clear- out here , I don’t think there would be any doubt in having some frost….not sure what temps others are seeing but it’s usually a bit colder around my area as I think we are in a little lower pocket of air around my home , although GLD usually posts cold temps as well , usually colder then here on average.

    1. Swatz_Zoo(Cedar Springs) says:

      I’m going to sound like Fixxxer but I’m getting on the same boat as he is, this weather SUCKS!! We were teased in the most ultimate way when we were in the 80′s and such. Oh well, what goes up, must come down :-(

        I here ya Swatz ….no goose flips for us , maybe wed – thurs , that’s a big maybe .
