    Careful kjel, TT, dandy, LP, NH, Fearless Leader Dan and the rest of you northeast cyburbians today.
    We had high winds overnight, but it's settled down.

    A Nor'easter has taken up residence over NYC/NJ. It's been a bunch of rain, wind, hail, and wet snow. Thankfully nothing is sticking. The shore areas are getting hammered because of the lunar high tide.

    I think it will be an early spring and a hellacious allergy season here in the mid-Ohio Valley.

    Decent snow storm headed to NJ/NY. Predictions are all over the place but I think 8-10" is what I will see. We likely won't be working and school will be cancelled.

    An inch of powder greeted me this morning. Strange, usually about this time of year I'm mortally sick of winter and despise the white stuff, but seeing it this morning didn't really phase me. That might have something to do with the fact that it'll probably be gone tomorrow.
    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

    Every morning this week we've been greeted by an inch or so of powder.

    It snowed all day here yesterday, pretty hard at times and some reports said we'd get between 3 to 5 inches but it was just warm enough that it wasn't really sticking too much. I think we ended up with maybe an inch or two total.

    Just because you said this it started snowing again here. Thanks.

    It's funny to me that working for local government for so long causes me to always think of snowstorms in dollars and cents. Fortunately we've come in under budget the last two winters.

    From February 26th:

More importantly, it feels and smells like spring outside which isn't always the case this time of year even when the temps are warm. We need a few big rainstorms to wash away all the dust and salt.

    In related news, my tulips and hyacinths are starting to pop out of the ground but I don't see any crocuses or daffodils yet (though mine seemed to be dying off last spring and I think I may need to plant more this fall).

    Even though flowers are starting to pop up, this is always my least favorite time of year because everything is so grey and dirty and dusty. Thankfully at least the sun is shining today.
    I was way off in my assessment that winter was fizzling out.

    I'm looking forward to being in Florida in a few days.

    I'm going on record as saying yesterday we saw our last snow of the season. Not even flurries going forward into spring.

    We could use some of those April showers a little early. We're in an all time drought.

    Shut up.

    We're going to Sanibel in May. Hopefully it will have stopped snowing here by that time.

    Although there was snow on the ground this morning, I think all the ice is gone under my pool cover.

    Maybe it's not 'weather' per se, but I noticed there was twilight in the eastern sky this morning on the drive into work.

    It was in the 80s down here in Texas over the weekend and I got quite a bit of sun being outside. We had some rain on St. Patty’s day in the evening though. We’re at the point where the high will typically be anywhere from 65-85. Nice to finally enjoy a real spring, unlike the 40s & 50s crap with a couple 60s-70s teaser days sprinkled in until May like I remember in the Midwest.

    I'm so jealous! I spent two weeks in May for many, many years visiting Sanibel. That is such a great time to go. Have a great time.

    20+ mph sustained winds in Atlanta this afternoon - with this being the beginning of the pine pollen season, the yellow clouds should be entertaining.

    I am happy that I don't live in the north-east anymore. This weekly nor'easter stuff is getting ridiculous.
    If you want different results in your life, you need to do different things than you have done in the past. Change is that simple.

    It's been snowing pretty heavily here since 8:00 last night. I let everyone who made it here today go home at noon. The phones aren't ringing, because most people didn't go to work. I didn't see any sense in letting them sit here all day thinking about how bad their commute was going to be. At least they'll be driving with fewer cars around them.
