What Whacky Weather

 

Yesterday we had some whacky weather  and I think we are in for some more today . Yesterday morning was lovely as I posted about that yesterday but by the afternoon well all hell broke loose . So I took photos lol  !

February 2014 (1 of 22)

             The winds were slapping rain and ice against the windows  it was loud .  It thundered and lighting whistle it snowed then it turned to sleet with high winds then rain and it has been raining ever since all with mild temps and yesterday evening we had another thunderstorm with lots of lighting . !

over the top as he is getting rained on .

                                                                               where nature is concerned !

                                 Some birds were frantically feeding in the rain getting all they can before the others .

                                     And then there were some birds that preferred to stay dry and wait it out !

Still raining with snow mix and windy  this morning  temps are 2°C or 36°F very damp and it is making me ache but the good news is  they say it will clear up and sunshine for this after noon .

                                         Maybe all this whacky weather is Spring trying to push through !

                                                            Until next time my friends !

We will be getting a lot of rain and winds later today, Elaine, so yours may be ended by then?
Enjoy the weekend.

Yes, Ma'am!!!!! Wacky weather here tooo!

This morning it is a general mess outside. But could have been worse. We could have gotten Ice Accumulation, and that is always worse. I so fear Ice Accumulation on tree limbs and power lines. But.... It's just wet and messy.

I love to photograph rain drops tooooooooooo! And you can even capture them falling! Go you!!! :-)

Thank you for your tour, this morning. We know what it's been like, in your neck of the woods.

Old Woman Winter is really grumbling...... And we know it! ,-)

Tessa~ Here there be musing said...

And I know what you mean about aches and pains in our joints, etc.....

I had not yet heard about the messsss coming last night... But late afternoon, my ankles told me that something was coming.

Ahhhh yes, our personal weather reports. :-)

Just love how the cardinal pops right out of your photo with its vibrant colour on a dull day. It is absolutely pouring here today, no chance of sun at all. It's the perfect day to stay home and make a pot of soup :)

HI Miggs has the right idea as well as those cardinals. Have a great weekend.

Hi there, Wow what wacky weather you had. I think folks everywhere are experiencing the same thing. Yesterday the winds were blowing so much, I thought I would blow over. It looked like snow last night but we didn't get any. Today is sunny and cold plus windy but I'm going to take Hunter out for a walk anyway.
Stay warm and dry! Love your pics.

Oh those poor squirrels. We had a lot of rain coming down this morning, and the squirrels looked like that here, too! I bet they - and all the critters - can't wait for spring to arrive. It's been such a hard winter for them.

That photo of Miggs is so cute! That's what I want to be doing all winter long --- snoozing it away! LOL...

William Kendall said...

Poor squirrel!

The storm started here last night with snow, changing to freezing rain and rain over night... there was rain this morning, but it let up around two. Late in the day we got a breakup in the clouds and some blue sky.

Miggs is such a cutie!

Linda said...

Beautiful series of photos. I am so glad you decided to take and share them.

Debbie Bosworth said...

Hi Elaine! Wow, great shots of the rain storm... It found us today...and brought some very thick fog as well... Love your natures shots as always... so beautiful.. poor little birds and squirrels though! I love Miggs taking it easy during the pounding rain...:)

Anvilcloud said...

The rain was a nice change, and we got our car washed. It was much needed.

Amy at love made my home said...

Spring is surely trying to arrive!! They say that a change is as good as a rest, so perhaps the snow was just having a rest! xx

We have been socked with snow, over and over! Love that cardinal photo! Have a good one! It's almost Spring!

That's a very soggy squirrel in your last photo! Rain on snow drives me crazy. :)
