    Just finished snow blowing and 15 minutes later it starts snowing again. -1 at 0024 and about 4 inches of the white stuff. Still snowing lightly guess I will get another 2 hours of exercise.

    We have 3 inches now, and the snow just started coming down heavier, the roads are pretty much ski patrol type of a mess, Stupid people all over town sliding into and knocking down Power poles, half of the gated community I am in is with out power since about 5:30pm. I got my generator on standby, started it up to make sure there would be no problems if I need it. Full tank of Gas, and 10 extra gallons will last me 30 or more hours if needed.

    Just read the NOAA weather report, got another storm headed our way on the tail of this one. It is about 100 miles south of us but headed north. Guess my daughter doesn't go to school tomorrow.

    We had a very very short spell of cold weather here, but not long enough to get a six pack cold.
    We're back up to 78 with a low of a very brisk 60 degree plus weather...all week.:D:D

    While you guys have to get the snow blowers out I might have to take my lawn mower out again.

    All of our snow left us in the last couple of days. So this morning I thought it was warmer, wrong, the streets were icy, slip and slide; which is how it is supposed to be in the morning.

    It has started snowing here again after about 45 minutes of break. There are cars and trucks littering thr road side ditches and blocking some of the lanes, where people just abandoned them and walked the rest of the way to their destination. The county has just sent out the sand trucks, that means about 4 hours till they get to our main road (only road) to and from town.

    My wife sat in the car for Three hours last night due to a electrical truck upside-down, they called for a crane to pluck it back onto the road. She was only a mile from home.
