The talking heads on local TV news opined, a few minutes ago, that "most of the nation has good weather for the holidays, except the extreme northeast." "Great news," they called it - conveniently forgetting how awful our weather was on Friday, and what it's like for those stuck in the middle of the eastern version.Stay safe, ma'am.
Fortunately, I don't need to go anywhere until Thursday, when this should be over. And I went grocery shopping last night. So did everyone else in the county. At the same store, I think.
Ewww is right. My sympathies.
Things are icing nicely right now. "Nicely" being relative.
Stay safe and toasty!Still...can't help but looking at that pic and thinking "hmmm...needs a "your luggage is here" up in BC or Yukon somewhere...
My biggest concern is the winds getting up.
High winds, ice accumulation, and very cold temps can be....fun.
Especially when you live in the woods. But the wind never got up like it was supposed to and the temps rose enough that we just got rain, so I'm content to see the worst of the mess heading east and north.
Good to hear!Yeah, even down here in Texass, the weather guys like to hype up the horror. The "arctic front" that was supposed to hit this past weekend and drop temps into the abyss and bring freezing rain, sleet, lamentations and wailing dropped down to 33F, it drizzled on and off all weekend, and there were only rumors of (possibly) some sleet up in the Denton area (north of Dallas). :sigh: I know predicting the weather is pretty much a guess, and its always better to err on the side of caution, but starting your report with ZOMG!THERMAGEDDONISCOMING!!!! is probably not the best way to do that.
