Yeah, in Ft Worth it went from 70 earlier today to 26 currently. It actually dropped 17 degrees while I walked the dogs this afternoon.

Our 'drop' went from +19 F to -11 F. Contrary to social media, we all survived.

Wind chill in the low 20s for my commute this morning. Discussed my dislike of cold weather with one of my underlings (who lived in New England for many years), who chose to dismiss my complaints by claiming this isn't really cold weather...apparently she's feeling safe since we concluded her annual review last week. ;)

Currently, Fair and 70°F. The forecast is for mid-70's temps on Christmas Day. Might get some time by the pool. :h: :lmao:

Funny how it can be 26 one day and it feels a bit chilly and be 26 another day and feels like it's bone-freezing cold.

We're supposed to hit 60 today, but it was a pleasant 39 on the way in this morning.

Just about all the snow is gone from the ground here on this side of the state. Now we are stuck with mud, ice, and dreariness. The sooner we get some more snow to cover up all the grey, the better.

And while it is warm here today (Sunny with mid to upper 60's), the weather people are staying that we will get snow this weekend. One model has it being less than an inch, while another model says that it will be 10-12 inches. I predict 2.

Let's hope that it's snow and not the dreaded WINTRY MIX and ice.

It's really cold up here today. -30C(-21F) and -40 with the wind chill. The city's still recovering from having our snowiest December in a long time, 80cm (31in), and we just got 10cm (4in) last night. Gonna be a fun winter this year, especially now that our furnace has decided to act up.:not:

I have no idea what this "snow" thing is, but some of it is also being predicted for the ATL this weekend.

Regardless if there is any "snow" I-85/I-75 will be at a standstill. I hope you're working from home tomorrow.

We're supposed to get 1-3 inches, but we'll see. Now Downeast (that's what we call eastern NC here) they're projecting 8-12 inches. They'll be paralyzed for a week if that happens.

It's cold. Got a few inches of snow too but nothing unreasonable.

Some parts of the Sierra Nevada mountains in California are expecting between 10 and 15 feet of snow over the next couple of days! :-c

I had some friends who once volunteered to go do some cold weather survival training at the Marine Corps Mountain Warfare Training Center in this area and when they returned the general consensus was that it was the absolute stupidest decision they had ever made. I don't think they were there during a time of 10'+ of snow in such a short time but it sounded like the snow just never ends out there this time of year. Plus, Marines are made for beaches and jungles and tropical climates, not mountains and snow and skis and high altitudes!

At least they usually had plenty of MREs with them so they didn't need to resort to cannibalism.

Oh, yeah, I'll be working from home tomorrow, and I've told all my people to do the same.

Yikes.

The recent prediction here in the Triangle is 2-4 inches with a 15% chance that it would be more than 6 inches. If we get 6 inches, that is going to suck. This morning the brine was dry on the roads and my first thought was if we get any rain, we are screwed.

Thank goodness it is not going to start until later on Friday and will be done by mid Saturday.

Twenty degree temperature drop yesterday. While running errands yesterday at lunch I didn't need a jacket, but this morning it's below freezing and windy. Will struggle to get to 35 by midday. Supposedly no rain, but for :tx:down here:tx: this is COLD!

And so the forecast has changed. At my house, they are calling for more than 6 inches now. To make things crazier, it is going to drop below freezing later tonight and not get above freezing until Tuesday with possible negative temperatures overnight Sunday into Monday. :-c


I predict that everything will still be shut down on Monday... maybe Tuesday.

According to weather.gov, we are expected to get 3 to 5 tonight, and another 1-3 tomorrow.

According to weather.com, we are expected to get 5 to 8 tonight, and another 1-3 tomorrow.

My family is coming down tonight to celebrate my birthday (which is Sunday). I hope they don't get stranded here, mostly for my own sanity.

EMS just sent out an alert for the area - we are looking at 3"-6" of snow beginning tonight and ending mid-day tomorrow.

Raleigh/Durham/Chapel area is expecting 6"-9" of snow

The south will be a clusterf*ck until Tuesday.

I think I might have to buy another two loaves of bread at lunch.... I don't think we will eat it, but that is what people down here do.

It's been a bit warmer this morning than expected, so the models keep pushing the snow line north. We may end up with just a half inch of rain at Chez Bubba (which will then freeze on the ground :-@).

and don't forget the milk. Those milk sandwiches are good from what I've heard but I've never had one.



As for me, I headed to the grocery store at lunch to make sure we have fixins for chili. And beer.

I went out earlier to get some stuff and ran into our state house member at the grocery store. He said that he doesn't consume milk or bread but he felt obligated to get both because that's what people do. Unfortunately, that's his logic for voting the way he does.

I still have to get some beer but I have some bourbon as plan b.

Started snowing last night around 9:00 pm. There was about 2" on the ground by the time we went to bed.

Woke up this morning with 8" of fluffy white stuff!!! There's still some light flurries. This is more than what was forecasted but I'm fine with that.

We got an inch and a half of ice, then an inch or so of snow with the storm on Friday night into midday Saturday.

Currently it is 6 degrees at my house and while the main roads are ok, the back roads are ice rinks.

However, it is going to hit 70 on Friday!
