What's the weather like where you are?

I don't really understand the weather-- it keeps changing, like a lot. Some days are warm and the others are cold. Though it is cold now but getting cozy in the bed especially at a night time sure feels nice.

It's been raining all day.  It's finally a little warmer, but now they're saying snow tomorrow night.  I am very anger-ee at the weather right now.  At least my car is in the garage (sorry @Nyxnine :P ) hopefully it stops doing whatever this is by Wednesday.  I need to take that car in for an oil change and a detail...

I had planned on taking a before and after shot of the snow, but it was already dark when I left.

So tired of snow sun snow sun snow. Indecisive weather.

Apparently it was a bit windy in Iowa a couple weeks ago.  🍃  Not a tornado either.  More like an inland hurricane.  My brother is about 100 miles away in Janesville, WI & he sent me this 'tubie link...

Sunny and 70°F (about 21°C) even though just last week is was 26°F (-3°C) and we experienced my first snowstorm of the season. It's at that time of the year that the weather cannot make up it's mind here...

Rain all day & temps getting close to 60F. EDIT: they’re saying we could actually have thunderstorms overnight. Apparently it’s the same system that caused tornados in Dallas last night.

And then they’re predicting we won’t get out of the 30s all next week.

Getting a bit of windy going here.  Just got a text from the power company, Southern California Edison, that they might have to shut down the power in our area.  

(Ever since the court case holding PG&E liable for damages stemming from unmaintained electrical equipment the power companies have been “preemptively” shutting off power whenever there’s a wind/fire danger.  Guess that’s cheaper than actually maintaining their equipment.  Didn’t used to be that way but the state’s PUC is worthless when it comes to actually requiring the utilities to do anything they don’t want to do.)

Same here. I had this happen to me the last two years I've been in NorCal, and I was hoping it wouldn't be as bad down in SoCal as well. Guess this is going to be something us California people are going to have to keep dealing with moving forward :(

There are options.  I'm currently* looking at upgrading and expanding a smallish (4kW w/10kWh storage) solar PV system that we installed about 20 years ago.    Amortized over 30 years like the power companies do the system cost us around $0.17 per kWh but it has already paid for itself at the insane rates SCE charges.  When we built our system the technology was just starting to be usable for normal residential service if you didn't mind doing all the engineering yourself and could convince the power companies to let you do the net-metering thing with a grid-interactive system.  Now prices have come way, way down and equipment is much more capable, with things like microinverters, Tesla PowerWalls, etc.  Much more mainstream too.  There's companies who will provide installation and service for PV systems the way other companies do for HVAC systems.  For the same $0.17/kWh I could build a system at least 3x as capable today as the one we built back then too.  At SCE's $0.42/kWh top-tier rate I don't need SCE anymore.  SCE is pricing themselves out of the market.

*no pun intended.
