Looking At The Long Range Forecast on the Last Day of February

weather folklore

Oh my, Here we are at the last day of February. That means it's time to take a look at 
the Long Range Forecast.
On February 2, the weather in Stuart had turned to clouds and drizzle with the temperatures topping out at 44 degrees. Around here we have had some interesting weather. We have had rain, sleet, snow, and very sunny but blustery days. There where days that we experienced some or even all of these in the same day. 

Let's take a look at what has been going on here:
  • Out of 28 day 19 of them had no rain or precipitation. Doesn't that seem hard to believe? I went back and recounted what I had recorded and it's true!
  • Three of the days of the month started out with a lot of rain and then cleared out to offer a bright sunshiny day.
  • We only received snow/sleet on three days but one of those day more than a foot of snow and then grew into even more accumulation.
  • Our average temperature stayed between 28- 46 degrees. A few days were extremely cold -10 degrees and some of the highs reached 74 degrees.
What do you think?
Do you feel there was accuracy?

I think February 2 was kinda a wishy-washy kind of day.
I also think the month was the same way.

I know many folks have experienced extremely turbulent weather 
feel free to share your experiences.
Thanks for dropping by for a visit.

Sweet and Sour Chicken Tortilla's with Coleslaw-A Must Try!

Sweet and Sour Chicken
While visiting over at the
Yesterday, this recipe from Linda Nortje at
Creative and Delicious  jumped out at me.
I told her I knew what I wanted for supper and that's what we had. 

It was delicious!!

I had to tweak the recipe a little to suit what we just can't get in Stuart, Virginia...
thick soy sauce & avocado oil..
I used olive oil in place of the avocado oil and regular thin soy sauce and it was still extremely good. 

I would strongly suggest these 
Roasted Garlic & Black Bean Artisan Tostito Chips
to go along with this dish.

They are delicious as well!

I hope you enjoyed me sharing what was shared with me.
We were blessed by this meal; I hope you'll give it a try and get a blessing as well.

Winter Wonderland

Happy Valentines Day!
Fantastic Friday!

I suppose I should start off with apologizes for being absent for sometime but sometimes life is just life. No bells and whistles!
Nature has been full of it's own excitement in the way of the weather. Does anybody need another post expressing how cold it is or how traumatized we all are...NO..Quite honestly, the kids in this house have been loving it even me the big kid. This is the first double digit snow fall that Stuart, Virginia has had since 1993. At least, that's what the radio has been proclaiming from several different folks that have been calling in. I'm not sure if I agree. I remember some pretty significant falls since I've lived in Stuart but it's very possible it was accumulating snow that I  am remembering.

Needless to say, we have made the best out of it. I think we have almost ate everything in this house, I've drank and extreme amount of coffee, we've played in the snow, I've laid out of work(so glad they finally decided to close the plant), watched movies, played cards, and been absolutely lazy.

Isn't it nice when GOD says, not your will but mine!

Would we ever stop, if it were our choice? I doubt it!

Here's a link to some of the food we've been chowing down on..

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit.
Be Blessed!
Be a Blessing!
