I like summer in the south. I can't stand anything below about 50F that's winter to me. Time to hibernate till spring.

Sitting here waiting for Tornadoes, hail, damaging winds and thunderstorms till about 3:00pm.

When did the Weather Channel receive the authority to name storms?

Anyway, I moved to So Florida for the only reason of getting out of the cold northeast when w*rk was done .

The scenery is usually good at Bondi, and it goes great with Foster's and shrimps on a barbie.

I have to say South Beach is a good domestic winter destination without the LONG flight to Australia.

Here's another pic since the last one of over a little an hour ago. It's hard to see in the pic, but the snow is heavy and the wind is blowing around 30 mph.

Ok...I'll quit posting pics now.

Wow, BbbamI!! That's a lot of snow in just an hour!

We have a tornado warning, with a possible tornado moving into the area. It is dark here with gusts of strong wind and sporadic torrential rain. But, it's much worse further north than it is here.

Oddly, it's 72F here although we are expecting a precipitous drop in temperature later tonight.

Well, at least the pond has not frozen over. I hope there's no little fishy swimming in there.

Current temp of 56F where I am. It's 26F up at my boonies home with low to 18F. A weather cam near it shows 2 ft on the ground. Some time after New Year, I will drive up and spend a couple of days to check things out.

Hate to hear of the tornado warning W2R.

NW....no little fishies in the pond. We thought about adding some, but I'd worry too much about them.

Stay safe y'all....

bbbamI, in our neck of the woods, we had a lot of rumbling going on last night and early this morning and at one point during the night, thought I heard hail. Now back to the white Christmas.

Seriously snowing in central AR (following an hour or two of sleet).

First time it has snowed here on Christmas Day since 1926.

Dude! That has got to be a record! Staying warm (relatively) up north in W. PA and enjoying the white Christmas. In the middle of the blizzard. Just as predicted. About 9 inches of new snow. Now we are getting the ice crystals. I got to hand it to the weather people. They were spot on.
