Don't look too bad there Kimberly. Keep the shovel handy though.
Currently in WiffFul.....
Nice, Eric.....real Nice !!
This current snow is heavier, a little wetter, and packing down what we got overnite and this morning....
No, it turned to sleet but is coming down steadily; so while it is not going to be deep a deep snow, it is going to be a lot of ice on the ground. At least it is not freezing rain. The temps have been steady around -5C/23F
That's about how much I have here, and it ain't even snowing.
Wind starting to blow; there is a fine icy snow being blown around, stings the face when it hits.
I am OK, holed up in the little office with the electric radiator. Ham in the oven for supper. Wish I had a nice cozy fire but that will happen when it can.
Not going to be a pretty snow here for photos.
Why are you calling it the Jonas storm?
I guess the National Weather service is now naming winter storms. I find it all a bit silly myself, the same for hurricanes. Why not just put a timestamp on the storm. Why not storm 1222016, or for hurricanes, storm 1-2016, 2-2016, that will more clearly identify a hurricane than calling it Pete, or Bob, or Judy.
Correction. Weather channel names winter storms to hype them up.
Took a reading of the frozen mix of snow, sleet, and ice and have ~10.8cm/4.25 in. The sleet really packed down the snow that first fell.
Storms should be named after mother-in-laws.
I watch the news on our ABC affiliate in Manchester, NH. Channel 9, they never once mentioned a name, the just say the nor'easter. I think TWC does more harm than good sometimes. Naming snowstorms. I'm lucky if my grandfather doesn't rise from the grave and slap someone silly
Right. Up here we had the great flood of 1936, Blizzard of 78, the no name storm, April fools storm. No names. Just hype is all.
Up here it's...................."Hey, it's snowing out.............."
We have a local news station that leads you to believe death is immenent when we get some flurries....or really any type of weather for that matter. Sad.
CNN does the same BS up here with the news.....................
Separate names with a comma.
