We've had a little of everything. We've had little ice storms at least 3 times this winter. That one time we had freezing rain, a good 1/4", I've worked here for 20-some years, and that was about the slickest my front sidewalk has ever been.

It was just last week, the first time I've used a snow shovel this winter, about 3 inches here in town. Wednesday morning when I went to work, we had snow on the ground, temps got up to around 50*, then it rained, stayed warm overnight and we also hit a high temperature of 74* yesterday. We had a strong south wind!

Calling for a low of 32* tonight, snow/ice/rain for tomorrow. And the Snake Feed.

Last Monday we had some serious rain, freezing rain, super wind gusts, and a little snow. From the current forecast, we'll be getting the BOHICA effect next Monday.

Back to -30 something C. this morning. At the fur pick up yesterday guys were talking about the closed trails. We all did a lit of chain sawing.

Much less fur and fewer trappers at the pick up.

We've had some big temperature swings here, from high to low temps, and quick too. In 12 or 15 or 18 hours time.

A while back I mentioned the "weather trivia" and "weather history", that is listed in the Cumberland, MD newspaper. It's pretty interesting sometimes, and I try to glance at them each morning. Here are 2 examples from 1/12/17 and 1/13/17.

Thursday, 1/12/17: Trivia: "What is the common term phrase for a mild spell in January? The January thaw. (All of my life I've called it the "Indian Summer".

History: `A cold snap spread eastward on Jan. 12, 1888, spawning the "Blizzard of 88." The storm affected an area from northern Texas to the Dakotas and killed 200 people.

Here's the one from yesterday.

Trivia: What is the lowest temperature ever recorded in Death Valley? 15*F.

History: Temperatures soared to 70*F in central Pennsylvania on Jan. 13, 1932. In colder regions, the greatest likelihood of unseasonably high temperatures, knows as a January thaw is from Jan. 7-10 and from Jan. 20-26.

That's a quote from Accuweather.com. The dates are correct. 1888 and 1932.

Our ground is muddy now, but the rivers are still low. Our farm pond is down 2 feet from where it should be this time of year.

Here's a message my buddy Moe sent me February 1, 2017.

"I can't leave until 4:30. Larry and jay killed a 38" rattlesnake in Pendleton county today."

Larry and Jay are surveyors.

We've had some very big temperature swings. I had 17* at daylight this morning.

Sunday morning was -31 C. It was -6 in the late afternoon. Obviously, it snowed. I stepped off a snowmobile trail to set a wolf snare and sunk to my crotch.

Last Friday I was trapping southeast of Little Rock. They set a new record for the date at 82 Mosquitoes were everywhere. We saw three cottonmouths that week. Not trapping weather at all.
