How's Your Weather?

Recommended Posts

That gas facility fire made the news here in the Chicago area (pretty dramatic video there), along with everything else. Isn't it early for tornado season? Isn't that usually a Spring thing?

We got a foot of snow. I kept up with the shoveling throughout the day. Later the neighbor across the street tried to pull into their as-yet-uncleared driveway and, predictably, got stuck, still sticking out into the street. I went over to help (I've only seen the adult female over there, along with some kids ... so much around-the-house work goes undone there I guessed she needed a "man" to help out). She mentioned a snowblower that she'd use if she only knew how.

Offer ME the chance to use a POWER TOOL?!? Arr-arr!

Unfortunately it was a one-stage and wound up being more work to use than I had anticipated (one-stages aren't really meant to deal with heavy and/or deep snow). We needed help from other neighbors to get the car unstuck. Also, she mentioned "when my husband gets home." Uh, didn't know you had one. Had I known I'd have left the work for him!

Pet Peeve: All the neighbor's kids climb the snow piles knocking it back into the drive and walkways. I did the same when I was a kid so I'm not upset about it, exactly, but I sure don't like having to go back out to clear up their mess. :angry:

Well, yeah, it's not tornado season yet but when you have sudden temp fluctuations from 20-30 degree weather to 60-70 weather back and forth, it's bound to happen.

It's a tad bit chilly today due to single digit temps with 30 m.p.h. winds. The snow band is covering our section of the county. Finally we're back to normal February weather. Now as long as we don't get hit hard like last year it won't be so bad.

Colder than a witch's **** At least the blow is over, along with the lake effect snow. Too dang many accidents. Why do folks drive so fast knowing it's ugly out there? Semi drivers? We had three of them close I 94 this morning. Hey you guys... You're supposed to be professional drivers!!!

Bitter cold and more snow a'comin' (5 inches or so).

I actually get more annoyed by people going too slow than too fast (actually, I don't even remember seeing people going too fast, once or twice? -- different perspective maybe? Or a difference in local driving habits?). It's really cold, so people drive slow. What? Why? Did your brain freeze up on ya? :rolleyes:

I sorta "get" why semis might have more trouble since they are effectively large kites, at the mercy of the wind, and once they're moving, wrong direction or not, they're not stopping easily.

The snow band is moving north. The peak snow fall was 1" to 2" per hour. The towns between Oswego and us got the worst pounding, now Oswego will get the brunt.

We got several inches of that wet heavy crap from the south last night. Freezing rain and sleet may hit us later. We lucked out these past couple of days. 5 miles north got hit with about 4 feet in the last two days.

I woke up at 9:30 this morning, looked outside and nearly crapped myself. Snow. There was snow. It was RAINING yesterday. My car's lock was frozen and it took some work to get it unlocked. Then, the friggin door was frozen shut. Had to yank it open. I'vve been buying 6-pack 24oz Mountain Dews to take to school instead of buying 20oz in the machines. I put one in the fridge last night while the rest were in my car still........ the ones in the car were colder this morning.

Dang southern Tennessee weather.

Six inches of snow last night followed by freezing rain and heavy rain all today. Lot's of street flooding and a nightmare to shovel.

3 1/2 hours shoveling that wet, heavy crap. The &^%$$^ plow blew by so fast that it left a berm 20 foot long, 1 1/2 foot high and 6 feet from the road to my sidewalk across the opening to my driveway. That crap was packed solid. I wouldn't mind it so much, but I have close to 3000 sq. ft. of parking area to keep clean.

The local weather girl said with a big smile "we're just 9 inches away from setting a 10 year record for snow fall and it's only February". Then she says it should be 20 degrees tonight so roads could get slippery. Ugh! :glare:

It warmed up yesterday and started raining. We had 50 m.p.h. winds all night with temps in the 50s. The rain has cleared and the winds abated. Now that everything is wet and icy the temps are going to drop through the day to single digit numbers tomorrow night.

Yeah, and we had it before TT... It's cold, windy and snowing now. 3-6" expected by tomorrow night. Then there's the unpredictable lake effect.

Terrorist, if you haven't gotten it yet, you are gonna get it bad! We went from record breaking heat Sunday to record breaking one day snowfall Monday. Shovelled 12-15" out of the driveway. Snowbanks are right back to over six feet. (but better than the farmland by me, they're past 10 feet)And be careful shovelling--that layer of ice makes for easy scooping but slippery footing!

@#$&% snow!
