    Because every winter storm doesn't cause $5 billion in damage like every tropical storm seems to do nowadays. And more people are moving in droves to Hurricane-prone areas instead of to the snowbelt anyways.

    As we slide into the 4-day weekend the temperatures here in NW Ohio are already in the lower 40F range. Expecting southerly winds and temps near 50F later today. Rain will start tonight and continue into Sunday morning. Then the mercury starts to slide and the rain will eventually change to snow......but not a lot.

    The warm temps, the rain.....should melt most of the snow from last weekend. That snow is all brown and dirty, any-hoo. The new dusting might just give us a picture pretty white Christmas. (Calling Bing.....)

    Eagle Harbor, MI, in the Upper Peninsula has had 58 inches of snow in December. I need more snow to fall in that locale.....I am in a contest and picked 80 inches as the December snowfall total. Winner gets a pastie! Woo-hoo!

    Clear and dry here at my house. This snow lover was teased yesterday as it snowed like hell in Cheyenne, WY and then snowed more in Denver; but last night my area of the state (between the afore mentioned cities) was left dry and windy.

    Oh well, more a coming, and it still looks really snowy (on the ground, that is...) here for Christmas.

    Well, we got a lovely few inches of snowfall here in Chicagoland. It's been snowing since about 3pm New Year's Eve and it's still coming down. The snowfall has been pretty light, but it has been ongoing. We'll probably get about 3-6 inches out of the system, depending where you are in the metro area.

    This event was completely unforcasted and came as quite a surprise.

    Before this event, December 2007 was already in the record books as one of the Top 10 snowiest Decembers in Chicago and Rockford. This snow event will likely boost this past December up a few notches in the rankings.

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    OK, it is early January but earlier today/yesterday, it was 65 degrees in Chicago with a tornado watch covering the whole area and stretching into southern Wisconsin. Tornadoes were sighted near Harvard, IL and Kenosha, WI.

    If this isn't weird, I don't know what is. I must say I quite enjoyed the mild weather though.

    Yeah, it seems we might occasionally get a thaw in late Jan. for a couple of days where the temps get into the upper 40's, but nothing like this. Every local weather record was broken yesterday when it got up to 61!

    Yesterday's tornado in northern Illinois took out some homes and businesses about 6 miles from my house. Then it kept going on up into the Kenosha, WI area. Freaky, for this to happen in Jan.
    Thankfully, nobody was killed, although there were a few injuries, and one person critical, according to the local news.

    Ditto here in the eastern part of the state. I actually opened the sunroof in my car! The warm weather melted all the snow in my driveway and a lot of what's on the ground, too... resulting in a soggy mess.

    Of course, these warm temperatures aren't expected to be around for the weekend, when I actually have time to spend outdoors.

    Not exactly 'weather' related, but definitely a 'mother nature is in charge' moment... We just had a death at our local ski resort due to an avalanche. In-bounds on a marked trail... It was in an alpine bowl and a double black diamond trail, but the ski patrol had cleared it and had been doing avalanche control before it was opened. Obviously an investigation is underway, but probably just a freak event.

    Scary thought given that I go the the same spot on a regular basis. The poor guy was in his early 20s and had apparently left his friends to go for "one last run"...

    The snow in Georgia was falling yesterday afternoon as far south as Forsyth (80 or so miles below Atlanta). The level of panic that a few snowflakes can cause around here never ceases to amuse me.

    We have snow, about 4-5 inches of the white stuff then turned to rain. I got to work ( about 20 south of the house) and they had about an inch, maybe 2 with most of it now slush due to the rain.

    -8 degrees on the hike into work this morning.

    Way better than 97 degrees.

    I'm happy as long as the temperature in Dallas is in positive double digits. Above and below that just isn't right.
