Polar Vortex V 3.0
« on: February 17, 2014, 02:02:52 PM »
It's not done yet, 5 to 8 inches forecast for today.

That's snow, for clarification.
Does anyone ever read these things.  I have some guitars, some amps and some effects but none of them play the guitar for me.... Yet.

Relentless!    :no:

Well, we are getting a little "relent" this week.  Forecasted to be 51 today.  50s most of the week!!!  Much of the snow depth has melted away, we'll start seeing some bare ground soon.

Got into the mid 50s today.  I took a sleeping bag out and caught a nice outdoor nap in a lounge on the deck.  Then grilled hamburgers for dinner.  I am done with Winter.

I measured 6.2 although official was 5.5 at the airport 2 miles away.  Crazy with that much snow now nothing even slowed down. going to get above freezing for the second time this month, and then later this week freezing rain with accumulation of ice on the roads.  Of course, that would be the day I took off work...

Hope Spring makes it your way soon!  We are headed to 67 degrees today.  It will cool back off to the 50s and 40s later on, but its looking like Spring (thin layer of snow left and growing bare spots.)  I am ready to plan a garden and scope out some Morel hunting spots!

No worries, temps back to normal of -10 WCF (0 actual temps) by next Monday AM.  Great weather!  The warm up we are having right now feels great.  Was 18 on my drive into work.

We're presently at 63 degrees and the sun is shining. Barring a freak weather system the cold cold weather is over for us ,next comes the spring rains.
I have been fortunate enough to get a great bite of the Apple of Life. One thing I know for sure. Watch out for the Worms!

The freezing rain is starting to scare people.  One of the local hospitals has closed their clinic and canceled all non-emergent procedures for tomorrow.

I'll take snow over ice, any day!    Be safe.

Well, didn't necessarily get freezing rain, but rain covered in snow = 3" of slush on the road which is pretty comparable to ice.   Nobody really driving faster that 25mph on any road. 

but, made it to work, and it will warm up this afternoon to about 40, which will melt all the snow in time for more snow tonight and sub zero temps next week.

We had a thunderstorm last night.  That makes it seem slightly spring-like, anyway.  Cooling back off, and we are supposed to get some rain and snow mix, with temps above freezing:  Recipe for Road Slushies.   Forecast is for more cold weather and some more snow over the next week.  Just when I was getting past feeling like I needed to hibernate.

It was so nice around here yesterday, me and the wife packed and drove 60 miles south to one of our favorite 1 day vacation spots got a room next to the bar took the wife shopping and then partied into the night.

We are now facing severe storms this evening . Conditions are right and tornadoes could pop up at anytime
