    In 24 hours we go from almost 60 degrees down to the low teens. From melting a covering if snow to replacing it with a fresh blanket of 8 inches of snow. Time to fire up the tractor and push this stuff outta my way![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Hopefully, it warms a bit with sunshine.

    Same here, it was high 40's into the 50's the past few days leading up to 60 yesterday, lots of melting. Supposed to get 1-3 inches of rain overnight.60° at 6 am but more rain as temps drop rapidly throughout the day.
    We'll be in a ice rink as temps drop into the low 20's this evening.

    Cold is cold. It's 32 here in Georgia. I had a week of nice temps and then the bottom dropped.

    60 degrees, and pouring rain Frday, all the snow is gone. It's now 11 and everything is frozen solid.

    27* this morning, but warming up with sunshine.
    Weather guessers say possibility of ice pellets/snow on Tuesday. Oh, joy.

    Not too bad today with a high of 44, but another cold snap comes in tonight, giving us a high of 24 for Monday and a high of 15 for Tuesday. Starts to warm up again for Wednesday and there doesn't appear to be any frigged, below freezing days after that for the foreseeable future.

    Usually around the 15th isn't it?

    Looking more and more likely that ice/snow is in my future. Got out a bucket and scooped up some sand/gravel to spread on the front
    steps --- just in case. I don't want to bust my butt on the steps like I did 3 years ago --- bounced down them just like the cartoons. LOL

    Well, son-of-a-b, I just looked at the weather forecast. 2-4 inches of snow predicted this afternoon and another 1-3 overnight. :(

    Booze TRL booze don't forget the booze! . :beerbang:

    Today according to the guesser:
    ''Lingering light snow or flurries for parts of southeastern New England, accumulating a couple of inches.''
    Then 2-4 inches of snow on Wednesday

    Makes me wish I still had my old truck with a plow.....nah it doesn't!!!!!

    I think this might be a record number of school closings for Kansas. Dangerous wind chills appear to be the reason. I've never been a huge fan of Summer, but I'd rather have the heat than these temps.

    If anybody hasn't heard from Texas by noon on Wednesday, send search party.

    We got another 6 last night. 3rd time this week that I had to clear out the driveway. Under the snow, the ground is still all covered with a layer of ice from last Friday's ice storm. I think I have had to clear the driveway more this winter than I have the last two combined.

    Looks like all the sleet/snow has passed me to the South and East. 28* with a very stiff North wind. A very few sprinkles of sleet on the steps, but not enough to make the steps slick. Austin is having real problems on the roads.
    My plan for the day is to stay inside, drink hot beverages and watch TV. Only time I see me going outside is if the mailman puts something in the box.

    I had to go to the local store yesterday because I used the last of my milk on my cereal. It was a madhouse --- people buying
    everything in sight. Grabbed my 1/2 gallon and got the hell out.
