What is going on with the weather? I'm in Coeur d'Alene right now. It's unseasonably cold--the high yesterday was only 52 degrees. Skies were totally overcast, then rain set in. Then ... it poured. (Blue on the map=winter storms.) I mean, I thought Noah's Ark was gonna float by. The world past our back deck totally disappeared. After about 10 minutes of that--boom. Sun. No rain. Weird.
Meanwhile in the east and across the lower western states--big, bad heat. (Bright pink and orange.) Like let the kids out of school early before they die in the classroom heat. As for the midwest? Houses are washing away in floods. (Green.)
Fortunately for this part of the world, the sun comes out on Thursday, with temperatures going into the 70s. Just in time for the famous Car d'Alene on Saturday.
How about the rest of you? Y'all surviving out there?
