You have to like snow to live in or near Buffalo...

Here in way South Texas at the 26th parallel we have been stuck in the 30s and fog for two days straight. 34-37 temp range. Yesterday's high of 37 was 33 degrees below normal - our lowest high for this winter. Drizzling most of the time but no snow. This is weird!

No freeze here yet all winter so our plants are still flowering. Our Rufous Hummingbird has spent most of the day at the feeders so we put out fresh nectar.

Supposed to get back to the 60s today. We'll actually get to see the sun!

Hard to believe that in TX, as far south as Houston, it is down to 37F.

Meanwhile, Miami is up to 83F. I would have to run the A/C if it's that warm.
See above post. Way souther than Houston - same thing.

I started this thread several years ago, now is the time to sing its reprise.

Portland (actually Salem north to at least Longview WA): Lots of snow, bitter cold, for 4 days and now there is the threat of ice during the warm-up.

This is an annoying time of year, looking outside the sun is shinning brightly and it looks like a beautiful day but it is 2 above and windchill of 10 below.

The USPS decided to visit our mailbox today. First time in 5 days.

I think the county had to do more work on the roads. Someone went off a 90 degree corner. There was the car, wrecker, and county sheriff car. The sheriff's car could get to the accident, but there was no way a 2wd car was getting back up either direction. Looks like several passes were made to the county road afterwards.

Ah, the joys of the Central New York "lake effect."

This exact scenario happened to a friend of mine in Syracuse. Not sure of the year, but it was either 1969 or 1970.

The kicker is that he was the weather officer at the military base I was at. He predicted flurries and went to bed a contented man. Next morning he was forced to climb out his 2nd floor bedroom window to dig his car out to get to work.

Needless to say, he never quite lived that one down!

We had something like that in (I'll never forget it!) 1966 in Maryland. The forecast was flurries, we got 3 feet of them and being the light fluffy kind it blew around in high winds so much for the following two days it was hard to tell it had stopped snowing.

We got a whole week off school.

I got 3-4" of the white stuff yesterday night here in Lacey WA, so I'm stuck in the house for today. There is a 30% chance of more precip today, and depending on whether it falls during the day (with predicted high temp of 41) or at night (predicted low of 37) it could either be rain or more snow. Then tomorrow it's supposed to warm up and maybe rain, which will turn it all into a slushy mess.

Small beer by the standard of this thread, but I have 2.5-3"this morning in Central Seattle. Ina bit I'll try my crutches on snow. I am low on bacon.

Be careful! Maybe bacon could wait. With a bad hip and crutches, your venture doesn't sound promising.

You don't understand. Desperation will make an otherwise wise man take foolish risks. After all, this is bacon we're talking about.
