    My friend left me a message last night to let me know he was walking home in the snow in some freak lake effect snow storm in Buffalo. I turned on the t.v. this morning and it looks like they got anywheres from 1 to 2 feet. Earliest lake effect storm ever. I remember it snowing around halloween sometimes, but the 12th? I miss the snow.
    A guy once told me, "Do not have any attachments, do not have anything in your life you are not willing to walk out on in 30 seconds flat if you spot the heat around the corner."

    I just heard on the radio that a 20 exit stretch of the NY State Thruway from Rochester to Buffalo is now closed due to the lake effect snowfall!

    I heard on CNN that Tom Jolls was stuck on the Thruway between Rochester and Buffalo!

    There's absolutely nothing on the ground in Cleveland, even in the snowbelt around Geauga County. There was a little bit of hail yesterday, but that was it. It's sunny and clear, although a bit chilly; I turned on the furnace for the first time this year.

    Early Snow

    So is this lake effect snow a by-product of global warming? And what caused the massive meltdown of the ice caps 10,000 years ago? And why haven't we broken all records the weather bureau has recorded over the last 100 years?

    I grew up in the Boston area and have lived around the country.......we have bad winters in the northeast in the 60's & 70's, but nobody yelled GLOBAL COOLING! And my grandparents tell me about the iceflows at Revere Beach in the 20's & 30's........how do we rationalize these events?

    Anyway, anyone going to Corpus for the Texas APA next week? If so, see ya there!

    Yes there was people yelling about the catastrophic effects of Global Cooling and how this could bring many species to extinction and all the same alarmist BS you hear from the Global Warming fearmongers that coincidentally were the same that were yelling about global cooling... oh the twists of life! Greenpeace goes from "Global Cooling is going to kill us all" to "Global Warming is going to kill us all!!!" in 20 years. Sure the transition from a little ice age (1800s) to a warm age (2100s probably) is probably over, but since climate is esentially cyclic there's not much to worry about...

    Now back to weather... today we had a lovely spring shower that lasted the entire freaking day, it was like winter here... I had been used to having 25ºC every day...and today it didn't even get to 15 Damn El Niño!

    24 Plus Inches In Michigan

    Parts of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan were not immune from the mid-October snowfall. The little town of Twin Lakes, a few miles south of Houghton, had more than 24" of snow on the ground. Snowmobile enthusiasts were already in the area, riding their machines.

    Same as Buffalo.....lake effect snow. Twin Lakes is at a high elevation so it really dumps it at that locale.

    The Weather Channel had a traveling reporter standing in Twin Lakes during the heavy snow. Cool!

    No power outages, though. Probably because most leaves would be OFF the trees at locations that far north. The Buffalo storm knocked out so much power because the trees still had leaves, creating a pile of wet snow on a tree that would bring it (or major branches) down.

    Here in NW Ohio we had about a 5-minute "blizzard". Near white-out conditions for a very short time, then the sun came back out. We are, truly, "the bananna belt".

    Fall has arrived in the panhandle, too. Under mostly sunny skies, it's currently 53 degrees but it's expected to reach a high of 80 today.

    It was cooler and breezy here, too. Nice. The front yard was full of cardinals when I went out for the paper. The cats were all lined up in the front window watching them.

    Quite a chilly evening here. Lot's of wind. San Francisco was chilly one moment this afternoon, warm the next.

    Blizzard was about 95 miles south of me. I got a light dusting that has long since melted (like melted YESTERDAY). Shut down my Folks' area of Denver though.

    A week ago a drove through a sunny and dry Utah (hear that, Cololi? ) into a wintery and snow-logged Colorado
    In fact, I made it over Vail Pass on Interstate 70 before it closed.

    But if any Texans read this, all the snow went to Utah. Please take your winter ski vacation there.

    I think that's the system that's moving down here late tonight and tomorrow morning. Of course, tomorrow morning is when we're holding a 3-hour event on two of our trails. Windy, thunderstorms, and highs about 20 degrees lower than today's high. Dang.

    The watch turned into a warning for about 30 minutes this afternoon. A tornado touched down about 15 miles west of my house moving to the NE at 35 mph.

    Well, perhaps it is time to log off the computer? RJ, you are a Nutbar.

    They're getting alot of tornadoes. Last weekend when I was there, one touched down a few miles from RJ's place, but we didn't know it until the next day. Whew. Sometimes it's best not to know!

    Friday In NW Ohio

    For anybody who gives a rat's bunion.....weather here in NW Ohio the last 24 or so hours has been low 40's with steady and cold rain. My garage painting job remains a procrastinator's wet dream.

    Next week for Halloween they are talking high 50's and no rain. Good for the tricksters......won't matter to us.....Loma Linda's for cocktails during treat time.

    It's getting chilly in NJ....at least to me it is. Guess we have a fierce storm rolling in tonight and spending the weekend with us. I'm going to be parked on the couch watching the Rutgers game on the telly and not braving the cold, wind, and rain at the stadium.

    We got about 3 inches of snow last night... it was beautiful to wake up to. It's been slowly melting all day, but we still have a couple of inches on the ground/in trees. Probably have some icicles tomorrow.

    It snows every year a few days before Halloween and then melts the next week. It's funny to see the kids running around in costumes with winter jackets on top.
