Californians especially, come and get it! Please!

Snow already on the ground. Eight to ten inches by late afternoon today -- already in progress, since maybe 3am. Predictions of 18-24 inches within the next week. Snowpocalyse. Snowmageddon. moresnow 

Lower than normal temperatures predicted through February. I'm living in Chiberia.  chill 

Somebody come wake me when it's over. In April, maybe?

Without getting into the wisdom of it, the US has the capability to build pipelines to transport oil and tar sands from one end of the country to the other north to south, so surely it can build pipelines to transport snow melt from the eastern to the western parts of the continent, too. Or, just as oil now is in some parts of the country, ship the snow by transcontinental rail in refrigerated cars, from Chicago to California. (Hey--maybe there's a bunny in there somewhere!)

It's getting better  sm  National Weather Service has downgraded today's snowfall to 4"-6", about half of what they were calling for yesterday.

sniff... sniff... If only the Sierras were getting that Chicago snow!

Too bad we can't pipeline some water here. Our water district gets water from Folsom Lake and its outlet is now above water. They had to go much further down to get to the water level. Water restrictions are coming - minimal watering of lawns and washing of cars and they're encouraging shorter showers and not running water when soaping hands or brushing teeth.

Praying that our high pressure will move east so you can have a break and we have a chance at some moisture!

Sorry you're getting such horrible weather in places in the USA, some of you for the second time this winter, I think.

It's Groundhog Day today, (and my son's birthday), but apparently Punxatawney Phil says spring will be late this year.  But you don't have to believe him!

Penski, if it's water you want, they should run a pipeline under the Atlantic and you could have some of ours.  We're getting washed away here!

Winter! It's starting to feel like Narnia!

And is it all snowed up where the Superbowl is going to be held tonight? My son is trying to educate me in the rules of American Football, but I am remarkably thick, as you will all have realised, so I haven't mastered them yet. It will be a while before you see me turning out on the pitch to play for a team.

Anyway - hope your awful weather soon ends. (And ours!)

Speaking of Groundhog Day, Mayor deBlasio fumbled it. Whoops.

At any rate, six more weeks of winter according to this groundhog, Staten Island Chuck.

Oh dear, poor Chuck! (Just watched this on Youtube, as you suggested, Beejay). Never mind, he didn't let it put him off his prediction - even though his prediction was the one we didn't want!

Well, Punxsutawney Phil was right - well at least for today. We are absolutely getting dumped on with snow today. I have about 8" and its still coming down. Bad enough for the county to shut down so I have off moresnow What a one day difference... this weather would have made for an interesting Superbowl!

Storm 1 down for the week(well almost - still snowing but lightly) - a foot of heavy wet snow!!! I hope I don't lose any trees to it. Storm 2 is supposed to hit tuesday night I think and is supposed to be ice. Have no idea when 3 is supposed to hit - I think this weekend. At least it wasn't as cold as last storm but I do believe i am done with this this year.

It's moving east and north... We're expecting 6 - 10" Tuesday night going into Wednesday morning, with the worst for the morning commute. Oh joy!  chill

I hope everyone hit by this stays safe and warm.  hs 
It sounds like time to sit in front of a fireplace and grab a cat or two(not you, Ghislaine!)

Penski, you didn't get any rain up your way? We got a nice bit of it finally breaking the drought down here.  morerain  But we still need more. Let's hope April really showers on the West. And perhaps the rest of the country will get a break from the cold if we finally get our share.

I wish I could sent this weather ANYWHERE but here!! You would like with all the advancements in science they could figure out how to move this stuff! Anyway, I am done with winter this year. Today - no snow - just ice!! Its been raining all night and is still misting. Thing is its freezing rain! It is like a skating rink out there. Tons and tons of trees are down. Over 550,000 people without power - to compare - 800,000 people lost power during hurricane sandy and that was a hurricane!!! Another day off from work as the county closed but I would much rather be at work!  snfl

As expected, we have a snow day today.  I'd enjoy it a lot more if I didn't have a cold.   Sad   And, as BJ said, lol, I will definitely not be curling up with a cat!  Right now, it looks like we've gotten about six inches of snow and it's still coming down steadily; it's not expected to stop snowing until tonight.

Yikes, Ghislaine! At least you're safe at home.

We got another 5"-6" here. My 1/2 hour commute took 1.25 hours this morning. Looking forward to an easier commute on the way home.

Slammed with ice!!!  We're in the hardest hit area.  The Governor even came to take a look.  We've been without power since early yesterday afternoon.  Not a hotel to be found in 20 miles.  2/3 of the county lost power and they declared the county a state of emergency. So many roads are closed because of downed trees and wires. It is interesting trying to get around.  Gotta love all the wifi places and now businesses that say come in and charge up!!!   Finally got an update and they hope power will be restored by Friday the 7th by 11pm.

Does that mean you have no heat, StormR?  very cold  I hope you're keeping warm, at least. What a mess back east! I hope you get your power back sooner than expected.

Good luck, Storm! (Seems ironic to be writing that...  Very Happy ) I am glad I didn't lose power in any of these past recent storms. I feel for ya!

I have power! 2thumbs I was never so happy to be woken up at 3:57AM Friday by the heat kicking on!! Yes without heat from Wed to Friday am - house got to down to 47 degrees - just a bit chilly. Still a ton of people without power so I feel lucky.More than 700,000 people lost power - super storm sandy "only" knocked out a little over 800,000. Certainly says something about how horrible ice is. It is the worst outage in the winter months ever. The thought that we might get another storm (ice) this wed/thurs is just not what I want to hear. Really don't care about the snow tomorrow - anything but ice!


I did get power back in time to hear California is getting much needed rain. I hope that includes you Penski!

PostSubject: snow in Kansas   Sat Feb 08, 2014 7:02 am

2014-02-08

At this point, the snow does not bother me so much as the temps. We got nearly 9 inches in a day yet for the past week our temps have never risen above 15 degrees and that isn't even counting our windchill which is keeping us in the negatives. Schools here were closed all week because of temps so honestly I would welcome snow as it least it means it would be warmer outside. Besides Kansas and Oklahoma water tables are still so low we need the snow. I guess we can keep hoping the weather cell will hang out here in the Southern MidWest more rather than heading straight up to Chicago.  chill

I am done, done done, done, DONE!!!!! We are once again getting pelted with snow. Have about a foot now. Sounds like sleet might be coming too so the snow is super heavy. Storm isn't supposed to be out of here until the middle of the night. To tell you how bad its been this is the 4th day I have had off and I work for the Government!!!! We NEVER close. We closed 2 days about 4-5 years ago when we got 30 inches in one storm and that is it. We have also had 2 2-hour delays. Pretty much unprecedented. I would much rather be at work than shoveling! hs 

I have an big old wooden picnic table in the backyard - yep looks like a big lump - can't see the fire pit either!  moresnow  moresnow I do have food. I had to thaw a turkey because of lose of power last week so it needed to be cooked. 18lbs for 2 people - I think we'll be good.  mush
