We got misty sprinkles yesterday, and this morning just enough to dampen the bare dirt areas in the yard and leave a tiny hand-sized puddle on my newly-built metaltopped workbench under the back porch eaves, from the tiny bit of runoff there.

Otherwise it's just been cold and damp and joint-hurty.

Today was better for my joints, almost sunny at times and warmer, but no chance of rain.

Tomorrow's chances keep changing, but average around 50%, predicted between a tenth and a quarter of an inch on average.

THursday has been fairly steady at 30% or so chance of rain.

I'm hoping for as much rain as possible, because they've cut my hours by around 1/4 for an indeterminate amount of time, and I won't be able to afford to water unless I have to. No luxuriously-green yard this year, most likely.

We seem to have gone back to winter from our temporary "spring" last week and week before, when we had high 70's low 80's F.

Been cloudy and drizzly and colder (60s and lower) this week, though it got mostly sunny today was still only high 60s at best.

Expected to be warmer tomorrow a few degrees, then getting colder and windier next week, with Monday being very windy and gusty >25MPH, and maybe even rainy.

Freeze warning for here tonight. Down to 30 predicted. While balmy by Midwest standards, a lot of vegetation around here isn't built to survive freezing.
