Same here in Eastern PA.  And I celebrated by getting all the leaves off my pool cover!

It got to about 50 here too, and all the snow melted in last weeks monsoon and flooding. And guess what?...... I heard a mower running in the neighborhood!

I didn't know it was warm out until I looked out the model room window and saw two kids outside wearing shorts!  Oh, I use my lawn mower to shred leaves.  Might have been mine you heard!

It was about May of '80, and I swear that I saw all four seasons in one day when working in downtown Chicago.

Today the high was in the low 50s. Tomorrow night's low is supposed to be ZERO.

 

I don't know if I should break out the grill or the snow shovel.

 

From the 50s to ZERO in one day. Only in the midwest!  :rolleyes:

Depends on how icy the walk to your car is, things get awfully (and I mean AWFUL!) exciting awful quick.

Chicago, 1967, from the Hemmings blog:

Look how the Buick(?) is plowed in, and was probably parked before the snow started accumulating, and the other cars are parked at least one lane off the curb due to all the snow built up in the parking lane. That was always fun to get out of with a RWD car.  :lol:

Aaaahh - the snowstorm of '67.  I remember it well.  I walked several miles to the Jewel store for work and ended up staying there for 3 days.  Slept on the cashier counters and fed pizza to the bakery oven.  It was actually kind of fun.

Too young for that mess (wasn't born 'til '76) and my folks were still in Iowa......and I think that was a matter of months before they got married. We also managed to miss out on '79 too, they had moved back to Iowa and had me while there and we didn't move here until right before Thanksgiving that year.

Hey Harry!!

Oh yeah... the blizzard of '67! My dad left work the afternoon the blizzard started. He got home three days later. No joke.

 

Lake Shore Drive, 1967.

Hmmm... I know I left my car here somewhere...  :lol:
