Re: Your Weather

Here in Western Kentucky we traditionally have hot summers and cool mild winters but, last summer was mild 
and so was winter until about six weeks ago, then it got cold, was 18 degrees f this morning with snow storm moving in. Weather people say we can expect 8 to 12 inches of the stuff. folks we don't have snow removal equipment so if that happens all government offices, Schools and such will be closed. We live in a well insulated home I built about 17 years ago. This too shall pass!

Re: Your Weather

We started out with 4F this morning. Made it all the way up to 12F with a lovely 15mph breeze. Forecast is for -5F overnight tonight.

Got both wood stoves running for this crap.

Re: Your Weather

WOW,, Opened the door this morning to meet a wall of snow, covering the whole door, shovel time...

Re: Your Weather

After spending the morning out with the snowblower and shovel, I found a VW Golf under the snow (my wife's) and not long after my own VW Jetta. Both are diesels, and both started with the first turn of the key. They were completely buried, and I thought afterwards what a great commercial this would make for VW. I can't recall seeing this much snow accumulation in the past 10 years here ... absolutely foolish.

Re: Your Weather

Snowing up here on the ridge already, with up to a foot of snow predicted from this storm. All the usual preparations have been taken in case of power outages, sometimes it takes a week or more for the power company to make it out to us. I love living in the mountains.

Live in the "now" - a contentment of the moment - the past is gone - the future doesn't exist - all we ever really have is now and it's always "now".

Re: Your Weather

I was on the edge between the Piedmont and the Blue Ridge in Virginia.  The piedmont had essentially no snow.  Up the eastern side of the first foothill to the Skyline Drive entry only to find that the west slope of the same hill was coated in ice and Skyline Drive was closed.  Very sharp demarcation of where snow fell in the Old Dominion this past weekend. 

We're expecting some nastiness, but it all depends on the model you look at as to what we'll get here in the northern tip of the state.  All the models show that Bluejeep's area is supposed to get ugly, though.

We get winters like that ever 10-12 years. Last one was '07-'08 so I guess we're due soon.

13F right now. We're on the northern edge of Zurf's storm. Might see 2"

Re: Your Weather

Didn't get much snow yesterday, only about 3" in my area so I figure we're pretty lucky.  Checked temps this morning and at 8 am it  was -12F (with wind chill probably around -25). At least I won't have to go outside and shovel snow.

Looks like a good day for some pickin'/writin'.

I always knew Canadians were friendly and helpful folks!  Then again that could be all the "car-pool" members trying to get to work.  Personally I never have had to dig any of my cars out of a snowbank, and would not see the purpose of extracting my car just to go nowhere..... it's not like we have a surplus of plows here in the "banana belt", so the roads would still not be driveable.

Just to toss a little salt into the wound..... Sunny and around 65F yesterday at the beach.  Clear, Sunny and expected to be close to that through Thursday.

Re: Your Weather

A tip of the hat to the snow clearing crews and emergency workers here in the Valley. Looking a bit better today, with roads starting to get opened even if many are just one lane for the moment:

Re: Your Weather

I will get a few pics up later on for ya, but it resembles the other snowy scenes.  Someone almost pulled into the snowmobile trail near my house that crosses the main road, thinking it was my driveway the other day. 

Badeye, I love the hockey stick shovels!!!!!!!!!

Re: Your Weather

Made it through the last snow, only got about 10 inches, but won't be getting down the mountain for at least a week. More snow is coming - hoping it won't amount to much. It's supposed to get very cold for the next few days. The deer are getting settled in behind the house trying to stay comfortable, I was watching them as I washed the breakfast dishes.

Re: Your Weather

Oscar Mayers Weinermobile did some spinning in the snow and cold areas around all snow area. I do not know if It got into a wreck or got damaged.

Re: Your Weather

OK folks - I know I have been bragging about the weather here in The Sunshine State, but we are even getting a taste of winter this week. It's nothing like my friends up north are dealing with, but we are expecting highs in the 40's tomorrow with lows tomorrow night near freezing! I haven't seen freezing temps since I've lived here - I have to search through the boxes in my attic for socks! Even worse, I have fresh tomato and pepper plants in the ground and may lose them if the temp gets below 32 for too long. Yikes!

No worries - back to the 70's this weekend smile

Re: Your Weather

It was like a Currier and Ives painting this morning when I went our with the snow blower and shovel to clear my driveway.  About 6" of new snow- not enough to create a big problem as snowplows have been keeping the roads clear.  It might sound odd to all the warm weather lovers, but I dearly love winter weather like we're currently having in our area - temps in the 20's during the day and just enough snow to create a winter wonderland.
