Link with 959: Gone / Not gone.

[You know winter is really taking a beating when the Santa board that was stuck in the snow back before Christmas finally falls over.]

It was about 20C here today. Hard to believe they're predicting colder temps by Friday.

Enjoyed this one, Vaughn.

In this part of the world "you might be a redneck" if you still have Santa in the yard in March.

Aurora Antonovic said...

Andrew - just for you: actually it reached a little over 22C, which is 72F. They're now predicting it will reach 40F by Friday.

Masago said...

Aurora: Thanks. It actually turned cold here today too. :-)

Andrew: It was -5C (23F) here today (the average low for March is -7C). It is known in these parts to get fiercely cold and major snow storms can hit any time up till the first week of May. :-)

Floots: :-) (Father X-Mas?)

John: Thanks.

Pat: It wasn't my Santa but for some reason some folks around here are sometimes tardy in taking down their X-mas decorations. Maybe it is the 3 feet of snow still on the ground that does it. :-)

Aurora: Thank's for the extra info.

santa here wouldn't stand a chance of surviving the new year's day let alone last into march :)
(a different story a year ago... this time last year we were still buried under a blanket of snow)

Polona: Right, you should be ashamed to call what you had a "winter" ;-)
