    Winter weather advisory. They say that now when it's going to snow.

    We're getting a couple inches of snow here, a couple inches there, but no real winter yet.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    We have about 8 or 9 inches on the ground here. I've already shoveled more this week than I did all of last winter. Some friends from Midland stop by earlier today and they said they have not had barely any up there yet.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    We got about 8-9 inches of primarily lake effect snow yesterday, bringing our total for the month, mostly since about the 20th of December, to more than 2 feet. That's good news for the ski resorts and the snowmobilers.

    I think I'm going to try out my snowshoes if I can find them in the garage. I bought them at the end of the season a couple of winters ago, and we really didn't have enough snow last winter to use them, but now we finally do.

    Rain. Rain. Rain.

    We had 2 inches yesterday. Predicting another 1-3 inches today.

    That means 4 commutes in crappy weather with a bunch of drivers who don't slow down and think that all rain drains equally.

    Warming up to the 50s by Saturday. Most of the post-Xmas snow that fell should be melted.

    Officially 1.3 inches of snow in Chicago so far this year, though some parts have gotten more. None anytime soon either probably.

    I hear it might hit 60 this weekend... which is good because I need to put new front brake pads on my car. Yes, I have a garage, no it is not heated.

    Close to 60 and partly sunny for Saturday. Showery and around 50 on Sunday. For January in WNY, that's bermuda shorts weather even for us oldsters!

    Right now it is colder in Phoenix than it is in Kalamazoo Michigan. The high for today is 52 for both and the low is 20 degrees cooler in AZ. It is time for my 5 days of winter!

    Got up to 72 in E. Texas today. A cold front is in the process of moving through that will put us down to freezing temps. This little daffodil showed up and will be very disappointed in a few hours.

    We've got 44 and dense fog. We're supposed to top out at 55 today. I need a good run of weather this week to frame one house and get as much done on the foundation on another, very scary site.

    Got an inch of snow last night but it was heavily laden with ice. The main roads were good this morning but side streets were a bit dicey.
