Seems that you are still in winter, and we are about to hit the 100F mark in the next few days.  This weather is really screwy lately.  One never knows what to expect next.

56 F , 11:30 am, in Olympia, WA.
It's been a stretch of cold days for the last week.

69 degrees at my house when I got home from work today at 4:30 PM. Was in the 80s in Asheville, NC at work. My satsumas are blooming now so Im glad were past the threat of freezing here.

It's awfully nice in Pennsylvania.  All my trees are flushing and I just set up drip irrigation in my greenhouse.

That's crazy.  Got to admit the weather has been all over the map.  Where we should be getting warm/hot by now we've been mostly in the 70's.   It's 69F now, 9:00 a.m.

FWIW one of the most fun investments I made was going with a wireless weather station.  The rain gauge sucks so I use a manual NWS approved rain gauge by Stratus. 

Here's the remote station - Davis Vantage Pro2 model.

You would love where I moved from after 42 hot years - Corpus Christi.  HOT and muggy.  At 6:00 a.m. their heat index is in the 90's come April or May.  It's not unusual to have daily heat indices in excess of 114F in the summer.  I hate it and would never go back.
