    We got down to the low 50's. I had to put on a long sleeve t-shirt.

    Brrr....
    They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

    I'm not saying you're stupid. I'm saying you have bad luck when it comes to thinking.

      We've seen everything from 10° to 75° in central Arkansas so far this year. I think it was those few warm days that have made the last few cold ones so miserable. We've had several snow/ice events and those pretty much suck, but you've just gotta take them in stride.

        Looks like March is going to come into NY state like a snow leopard...

        Our lows have been consistently below zero, and the highs only toy with +25F.

        But, since Lake Ontario is over 85% frozen over (a record, or close to it), lake effect snows have been pretty much non-existent for the past month or so.

        Made a trip through Lewis County the other day - six foot snowbanks alongside the roads are not uncommon. Heck, I've got two feet of snow standing in my back yard.

        No problem. In a few weeks we'll be done pumping basements (a regular feature of spring thaws around here) and spring will actually be here...
        Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

        Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

            Almost 30 today. I washed my wife's car for the first time in months.

            Millions of people living as foes
            Maybe it's not too late
            To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

                Maybe true scfire, but then again we don't have the threat of hurricanes or psunami, Earth quakes, or the burn down a good chunk of our state wild fires every year. I'll take what we have over those thank you very much!!

                    In over six decades living in this state. I've never been affected by any of those.

                      But you can't deny that parts of California have been decimated by earth quakes and wildfires.

                        It's a big state. The areas are relatively small when compared to the entire land mass.

                        Parts of every state have been affected by some type of natural disaster at one point in time or another.

                          And snow and cold weather are just normal facts of life here.

                            On the other hand, we do get earthquakes here in northern NY. Although the usual reaction is "really? I didn't feel it!"

                            We're actually above freezing for the first time in a month. I'd wash the truck, but we're back under a winter weather advisory for tomorrow night...

                            Last week we had all of one night that the overnight temperature didn't dip below zero.

                            The forecast for next week has some lows in the single digits, including a couple below zero, but the highs are looking a lot better...

                            On the other hand, that two feet of snow in my back yard probably isn't going anywhere any time soon...

                            I still like it better here than southern California. The central coast, maybe.

                                Tomorrow (Tuesday) we'll be 70 degrees.

                                Calling for more freezing rain overnight Wednesday with .25-.5" of accumulation and possibly 2-4" inches of snow Thursday AM through the day here in north Louisiana.

                                Crazy man. Just crazy.

                                Didn't have that many extra calls last week when we got the ice on Monday and then 3" of snow on Wednesday. This time it may be a little bit different as it looks like the freezing rain will settle in and then the snow will come in on top of it. It should make the roads nastier and the driving trickier, and may leave more weight on the trees.
