of weather?

I sure hope everyone still has power and is safe & warm!

We got a lot of rain, I haven't checked the gauge yet. And we even got a few minutes of sleet, but it melted as soon as it hit.
We are at 38º and WINDY! It feels really cold out there to me! Just not used to the cold anymore!
We started the fireplace again this morning, it helps!

Below zero temps Tuesday...we're on a run water alert so our pipes don't freeze. Such cold temps for such a long time, the ground is freezing about 5 feet down...very unusual so we have to keep the water running. today in the 20s.

I hope somebody's warm. Wink

We got over 3" of rain & it is still raining off/on. We never got over 39º today.
They keep changing our forecast...so I'm giving up on that...we will get what we get!

Wonder how Toots is doing?

Thanks for the update Patty!
I think LuvRPups may be without power. They had a LOT of ice the last time I heard from her...and I think she is in the area near Ga./S.C. border.

Snow started about 3 a.m. Now snowing sideways. Must be 4 or more inches. Around 11 its supposed to turn to rain, and then this evening back to snow. What a mess!! I really detest this stuff.

It was below zero yesterday morning. We have a few inches of snow on the ground now (fresh) and it is coming down hard. We are predicted to get over 8 inches. Ugh....

It's a mess here in Northern NJ. The snow and wind are blowing so hard, you can't even see out the window. I think they are predicting at least 10" of snow. This is our 5th storm in a month. I am so tired of this. Stay safe everyone.

Started snowing at midnight and was snowing like crazy (huge snowflakes!) until a little while ago. Got about 6" of snow, not sure. Now it's raining, supposed to turn back to snow. My backyard already had about 6-7" of old snow. My compost bin is almost covered up now. (huge snow drifts!) Unbelievable!!! Some people have lost power here. How did all those in the south make out? I saw all the snow in Georgia. OMG!!!
Only 35 days till spring, if you can believe it........ (rolling eyes)

We are fine here....our snow started around 4:30 yesterday afternoon..only it was a snow/sleet mix. It was beautiful coming down, thick and fast, with big flakes. Overall we got between 2 and 4 inches, depending on where you were and how the wind was blowing. Needless to say, with a sheet of ice beneath, everything around here is pretty much shut down. At least we didn't lose power, although we did lose the satellite signal last evening.

We are melting fast today...already up to 40 with sunshine. Lots of meltage going on, and 60's by next week. I loved seeing the snow come down, we so rarely get it, but now we've had it, and I'm ready for it to be gone. I just don't know how you more northern folks stand it.

Hope this recent storm in the east is short lived and that everyone stays warm and indoors if possible. Saw pics on the news and the traffic looked dreadful.

This winter has been awful in many places. I think most places in North America have had a worse winter than we have here in BC. Ours has been better than usual with only a couple of periods of real cold and many with temps hovering around freezing plus days of thawing. Lots of sunshine here which makes winter pleasant.

I hope you are all safe and warm. Feel free to send some of that snow to the Sierra Mountains of California. I'll try and send the 85 degree bone dry weather I have to you.

Live in South Jersey (abt 25 miles South of Philadelphia) we got 5-8" of snow, the real heavy wet stuff, then we got sleet, then we got snow again, then it rained and melted all the snow in the plowed streets and shoveled walks and then we had lightening and thunder. It's now 11:30 PM and waiting for it to start snowing again about now according to weather forecasters. Interesting weather day.

Good grief! About all you had left was getting a sand storm! What a mess!

In NC we got around 9" of snow. We never get that much, and it was such a treat for the kids and me! It was so beautiful when it started sticking to the trees. I've been loving it but that's because it's not everyday.

Went to my brother's house today for my niece's wedding. Saw Japanese magnolias bloomed out fully.

A maple in my yard has buds and my hydrangea has leaf buds.

The people across the street from me moved in about 2 weeks ago in the middle of a snow storm from North Carolina. I looked at them like they were nuts because of many reasons like weather, cost of living. Then I found out their daughter lives up in NJ and they are getting on in years and wanted to be closer. Well daughter and husband have been over several times to shovel snow.
