too early for snow!

I had my doubts when the weatherman said we'd get 1"-6" of snow last night and today. Woke up a little after 6AM with an inch of the white stuff on the ground with another inch having already fell. If that wasn't bad enough, it's the real wet snow I just watched my wife's bradford pear break in half Guess I'll have to take the chainsaw with me when I go to the mailbox, no telling what my long tree lined driveway looks like.

We didn't get that much, but it looks nice. Too early. Looking at pictures of grandkids trick or treating in shorts and tee shirts....in Denver !!

There is a dogwood on the other side of my driveway near the house that really looks nice covered in white, almost looks like a tree full of white blossoms. I keep hearing pop/cracking - almost scared to go outside, I hate working when it's cold and wet. I sure hope the power doesn't go out!

No snow but a chilly morning here at 26 degrees.

We only had a low of 33 degrees, currently it's 34. It's funny how the snow laid. A few areas are bare, the hood of my truck had 4" but my son's old broncos parked near my truck only had 2" of snow. Fortunately my driveway was pretty good. No downed trees, just had to cut a few limbs although there is one mimosa tree near the bottom that had laid down to about 3' above the road. I was able to knock most of the snow off and it stood back up.

Just flipping through channels saw a sports report about a game in MA. Expecting 3 inches of snow on an open stadium...now that's old school!

Cold and very non stop windy today, but at least no snow! Something about the way that storm was moving, that the southern states got snow, and we got the warmer rain.
Strange weather!

I just hope we don't have another snowmageddon like we did here in the Maryland area in 2010. Here is a link to the Washington Posts Capitol Weather Gang that has pictures and video Capital Weather Gang - Snowmageddon: Must-see photos and videos . That was a really brutally cold winter and the snow was around for a long time.

Still the coldest I have ever been is working on the tarmac at Ohare the winter of 1993. Minus 65 wind chill factor. Anything exposed would freeze in seconds. Thank goodness for APU's on L10-11's. They pointed down to the ground. You would see hordes of folks gathered around. DC8's had to run #1 engine all the time since there was no APU. Just glad to be back in the South!

Lake weather up in that area is crazy Larry. When I was up at Great Lakes for training in the Navy, -75 degree wind chill. When it went back to just freezing it was T-shirt and shorts weather.

What was a Southern boy doing that far north?

Vic, taking over the catering operation from United Airlines, and training new people. Work ethics are different up there. Down here we just close the city if the weather man sneezes. Up there with 2' of snow, EVERYONE showed up for training/work, every day. Boss told me I'd be up there a month, tops. Left in October, returned in May. You are right about the tee shirt weather. 30 degrees felt actually balmy. Still can't comprehend lake effect snow
