It's very beautiful Klahanie. I feel we have turned a corner here, the sun is setting one minute a day more now..:)

Thank you all.

Wow! It looks like a winter wonderland. Did you have a white Christmas there?

It was 85 degrees (29 c) here on Christmas Day, yesterday was a one degree cooler. Tonight it’s starting to rain.

Minus the snow, we had a similar day on Boxing Day (26th December) with totally clear skies from dawn to dusk! (though it was cold!) 👍😀

Today it has been raining most of the day. We have had a maximum of 11C today.

Yes Delonix, we had a very white Christmas.... and now for 2 days was warm (relatively) and raining so most of the snow is gone.Only the huge piles from clearing the driveway are still around . Today looks sunny(sort of).
I heard about your rain, you probably need it.

Dig out your shorts Balcony. :-) Europe is warmer than here in North America. The snow really created a mess in most places.

Klahanie,

We only had some good rain last night. It was gone by 7:00 am. We tend to get the least amount of rain in the state, unfortunately. Norther California is going to blasted with lots of rain over the next ten days. It’s very good for the drought. The next rain here will arrive late Saturday and on Sunday.

"Dig out your shorts Balcony. :-)"

Not likely! Though it's been a very sunny day here the wind has been very cold! I went out onto the balcony but couldn't stay out there for more than 10mins!

Balcony,

That’s amazing you couldn’t stay outside more than 10 minutes! I can’t comprehend that, as it never happens here in San Diego (even during the coldest nights here).

As I lived in Spain for the greater part of 30 years both extremes are well known to me. The extreme heat of June - to September & the extreme cold from November through to March. I experienced many more very cold nights in Spain than I have ever lived through here in the UK!

Now in my 7th decade I probably experience the cold more than when I was younger but even so with a temp of only a couple of degrees C & with the added windchill I couldn't stay out more than that!

Wow! That’s amazing! I always though most of Spain had a very mild-winter climate, but maybe I’m thinking of Malaga which has a similar climate to San Diego (San Diego is typically warmer in winter, though) I don’t think Malaga gets into the 80’s and 90’s during winter like in San Diego.

No, Spain has mostly continental climate - cold winters & short but hot summers. Around the coasts it's warmer of course & the Mediterranean coasts are the warmest.

Where my wife comes from, & where I spent the greatest part of my years in Spain, the winters are very dry but very cold & in a "normal" winter it was quite common to get down to -10C! Here in the UK that's quite a rare figure! At least away from the north where it is colder & much colder in Scotland.

We live in a region called East Anglia, which forms the majority of the "bulge" you see on maps of the UK.

Stunning photo Klahanie … sorry I missed it before. Such a gorgeous view- will you paint it?

We had sunshine here today, and I actually did some gardening!

Thank you Sheila, I envy you your sunshine. We have lots of rain lately, mainly cloudy but not really cold anymore.
Waiting for our weather to stabilize somewhat to be able to start winter cleanup.

I have not seriously painted for years Sheila. I tried some botanical sketches last year and enjoyed it but gave all of them away.
