A definite Honorary Mention.
Nah, make that a bona fide tie.
I really wish we had something better to compare than record snowfalls.

We were having chilly weather for a few days but today it was 80 . It's hard to get in the Christmas spirit with that kind of temperature .

Where's Noah's Ark? We had almost 8" of rain last Saturday, causing some flooding. That was shortly after the ground became saturated with around 4" earlier in the week. And now, it is raining again and up to 6" is predicted.

Glub, glub, glub!

It's not flooding my house, and even if it did I need new carpets anyway so don't worry about me - - I just hope that the other residents and businesses here don't experience any more flooding! And, poor Frank has to drive to his home from work in all of this in a couple of hours. Hope he can do that without driving into deep water.

At least our temperatures are in the mid 60's F, even this late at night. Up in the 70's F during the daytime.

It is always colder at the airports. It was -31 C at the airport when I got up this AM here in Calgary, but it was only -27 C in the back yard. Last year (the radio said), December was all below -30 C. I remember it was cold. (I got to park in a heated underground carpark today! )

(Say, where is that You-tube of snow in July (?) in Calgary? I have to send that to my Danish friends.)

Oh, yeah. The parking lots look like those in Buffalo, NY, these days: mountains of snow piled up in the corner.

Cheers,

Gypsy

Edmonton shatters cold record
I feel like a voyeur reading this thread!

Today's low and high here in CA were 45F and 58F, respectively.

My big weather complaint was that the rain caused me to miss my usual weekend bike ride

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. Actually, I think that it has finally stopped. We probably have 8 inches.

We now have a good two feet of snow, and according to the Hagerstown Almanac I might as well move the motorcycle to the shed and leave it there until at least April. Rats.

I hope not. They can do some serious damage to the wiring and upholstery.

Gorgeous weather out there, in the 70's and just lovely. Just got back from running errands and grocery shopping.

Tomorrow morning, strong damaging winds and isolated tornados are predicted as a strong cold front barrels through. Then torrential rains causing local flooding throughout the region (and after last week, that is getting old! ).

Christmas is predicted to be nice. I am glad we are not traveling, though!

We just unexpectedly had a few flurries blow through here (and I do mean "blow" through as we are having 20-30 MPH winds with gusts up to 50). My wife was out getting our lunch when it happened and I had to confirm what I saw with her: "Was it my imagination or was it just snowing?" If it was my imagination, it was hers, too.

The narrow, fast-moving squall line along the front is here right at this second. It will probably be past in a few minutes. For a while, wind gusts were blowing the rain sideways! Exciting and fun, but this has been much weaker and less severe than predicted (thank goodness). It shouldn't bother our plans for tonight.

Snow in Texas? How exciting!

Did you have to go somewhere today? I'm 20 miles from you so I know you're going to get rain today that should melt the ice. It's possible we could get a mix that will freeze again but why go out if you don't have to? You could just stay inside when the weather is bad like this. That's one of the best things about being retired(i'd imagine).

Current local temperature: 57degF. I am still in my perennial Bermuda shorts and polo shirt. The lack of snow here doesn't seem to prevent people from enjoying Christmas, however.

I remember in early December 1998, we wandered through downtown Auckland amidst city decorations and store decorations for Christmas. It felt weird as it was summertime for them, but I guess that's what people down-under know.

The sleet has turned to snow. 30 Degrees and headed lower.

Whoopeee!!

White Christmas. Stayed North this year and didn't drive to New Orleans or Florida or Arizona or Alabama or San Diego.

Even at 4 yrs since Katrina - snow hasn't gotten old yet.

heh heh heh - that and being in ER helps timing of not 'having' to drive. .
