37 was forecast but we endured a sunny 46. 14 expected tonight. Then we bounce around between mid 40s, 50s and 30s through the first week of February. No snow in the forecast. That wee smidge that fell a few days ago is all but gone. My snow slug is hanging on, though, because I packed the snow. Smiley Happy

@DaveMcK...Nice "stoops" as they would say in Philly! Cat Happy

56 right now in the burbs. Yesterday we hit 63. Cold air will be moving in soon. Today started out with heavy rain and wind, but now the sun is out.

Just cooked up a "vat" of veggies, so I'm good for the week. N.

Good morning everyone on the Front Porch!  We are cleaning out of another light snow of around 2". Cooler temp will be around for a while. Looking forward to Wednesday evening for a Restaurant Week dinner out with friends at a steak house. This is one of the fun traditions we have had for several years. 

Below are some interesting photos of urban Front Porchs in an urban brownstone setting.

Well. We finally got snow worth shoveling (a whole 4 inches) and I celebrated by making a snow sculpture. I decided on a snow slug because there simply isn't enough snow around to make a snowman. Smiley Happy

@DaveMcK

Avoid anything with HOA’s and build your front porch, your on your own for the rest.

I live in front porch Land, I’ll keep Mud rooms and partially enclosed to keep snow and rain off.

 

@LaDolceVita

 

You know how to contact me, if really suffering with I-7 in Windows 10.

 

Read up on Spectre and Meltdown for your Mac and PC.

 

If considering a Thinkpad,  consider Lenovo instead both made by same company. Only thing missing is pointy stick with red cat tongue cap.

 

PC scan with Antimalware, CCleaner, antivirus program, and get all updates/patches for both.

 

In computer question read up on flashing your UEFI/Bios If last update for Spectre/Meltdown slowed both computers to snails.

Only apply correct patch flash of needed, not all created equal.😬

 

30* sunny and windy, snow coming Tuesday, followed by rain and icing. Gotta love semi-Winter.

Good morning everyone on the Front Porch! We are looking at a mild few days with temps in the mid 40's with some rain late Sunday.

“If the world had a front porch like we did back then, we’d still have our problems but we’d all be friends. Treatin’ your neighbor like he’s your next of kin.” – Tracy Lawrence

If I’m ever ready for our next home, my must-have list will be short.

I want a home with a covered front porch, in a neighborhood full of other front porches.

That’s it. My list will stop there. Good schools, a walkable urban setting, age-friendly, nearby parks are nice, but neighborhoods without front porches no longer interest me. 

 

Do you know this Tracy Lawrence hit?

@Frozenoem  Apple devices or computers giving trouble? 

 

My story with Apple began after horrible Windows computers, 2 or 3 of them.  Then I bought a Mac mini and it was wonderful for 7 years.  Replaced it w/ Intel i7 and it has been a mess all of its 4+ years.  I will make it do as long as possible.  My windows laptop will be almost dead soon, will probably replace w/ Thinkpad.   I still cling to Apple for my main desktop though.

 

@DaveMcK @catwoman500  I was locked out from posting @ AARP by the endless sign in loop.   I am a creature of habit and there was no one to complain to about the weather!  I was distressed Woman Tongue.  

 

I could not go out of my driveway yesterday, still too much snow.  Must go out today, but it is supposed to be well above 50 for a high.  @Frozenoem,  I will pay for these coming days of almost Camelot in July and August or maybe as early as May.
