OK, Who’s the wise guy that turned down the thermostat in NJ…?


Thursday was seventy degrees,

Tomorrow is supposed to be thirty,

Who did this dastardly deed, yes dirty?

My internal thermostat is awry,

No wonder we all have the sniffles,

Must be from being outside playing with that holey ball, yes wiffle…


Left central jersey around nine thirty,

Calm it was, clear and no rain,

Got home about eleven thirty,

High winds enough to knock me off the roads,

Heavy rains so much they are warning even the toads…


If I find him or her as it were,

I will have to throw then into a plant full of burrs,

Our temps are down to below thirty now,

When just a few hours ago they were above sixty, we were saying wow…


If we had had a lot of previous cold,

I would say this was a mid winter defrost,

But fortunately for us, we have avoided that cost,

But looks like starting tomorrow the mid-winter summer temps are to us lost…

Ahhhhhh, yes, dear Eddie M... MOther Nature wields her wand once again, eh? At the moment, I can't get to work because it's -13 F and all that I survey through my window is a sheet of ice! Hibernation has begun in this neck of the woods. For us, your 30 degrees would be a heat wave! hehe... Do I mind not being able to get to work? who me??? (grin) Sigh... I love it when it's out of my hands.

we're going back to deep freeze
that warm treat is a picture
Of what we ain't getting anymore
Stay warm Brother
don't feel too bad
I'm in the Catskills for a few weeks
and I am not a skier
My mind is still down south

Join the Weird Wicked Wacky Weather Club, my friend. First we had 10 inches of snow, and after breaking my back shoveling it, it all melted in a few days with temps near 50, then we got pea soup fog that looked like the San Francisco wharf, followed by torrential rain, flooding, and thunderstorms - in January. This morning, it's below zero with the wind chill factor - again. BRRRR!
