Talk about meteorological whiplash - yesterday the high temperature was 70. By tonight it will be into the 30s and by Friday into the teens.

The high is Bismark will be -4. Consider yourself lucky.

Our low last night was in the 60s. It's supposed to be 76° today but only 54° tomorrow and 31° at night.

Yup. Same here, and out at Virginia Tech. I'm predicting record truancy over there today...

It's not the temperature I mind, it's the temperature swing. If it would just go cold and stay cold, or get warm and stay warm I wouldn't object.

We will have somewhat of a swing this weekend. Right now it is -20 with wind chill of -47. We will come close to 30 above on Saturday or Sunday. One can only hope.

We had hurricane force winds here last night. About 1,000 people are without power in our town. Luckily ours is not one of them. It was 52 according to the car this morning but expected to be back near 30 tonight/tomorrow.

We lost power last night just when Steve had entered the information to get plane tickets using miles--for some reason First Class was cheaper than coach and the original dates he had looked at were snapped up so he didn't want to lose out. I had a load of clothes in the wash and if the power didn't come back Rain Man was going to have to wear the oldest, raggediest jeans he owned. But Steve ended up finishing the transaction using 3G and the power came back in time for me to dry at least one load, and I'm going to Hawaii this summer for cheap!! W00t!

No significant weather problems here; the front moved through so fast there was no flooding. Georgia got a bad hit though.

We fly into Honolulu but intend to spend the bulk of our two weeks on Kauai. We have to work around Mini-me's baseball tournament schedule and the possibility Stephen will have to go back to school early (he applied to be an RA) so we'll be there mid-July to early August. We just grabbed the flights from Phoenix while they were still cheap and will work out the details.
