First lake effect snow forecast this morning north and west of me. Hopefully I continue having luck with lake effect where it surrounds me but very little actually falls in my area.

Well, here it is, the first winter storm watch for this season. Could be up to 6 inches of snow Tuesday night into Wednesday. Another good reason to move out of this area.

Yuck!!! Not looking forward to that. We're not going to get snow with this storm thankfully. The weather guy said that the winds could be equivlant to a catagory 3 hurricane though with likely power outages on tuesday. Could get some flurries on wednesday night and will have heavy frost thursday night/friday morning.

Yeah, we're looking for wind gusts up to 50mph.

We had some very slight white flakes the other day. Not enough to cover much less stick.
I have arranged for plowing service this year for the un-princely sum of $300 for the season. That is a deal considering the cumulative amount of lake effect snowfall in my neck of the woods.
I got a discount because a) I do not need the driveway plowed at 5 AM, and b) the plow guy is a long term friend with the same birthday as me, only a few years older.

Suddenly, after a glorious October, we have been hit by our more usual levels of oppressive humidity (and heat, of course). I couldn't even keep the back door open to air out my house, as has been my habit this month.

We are told to expect a cold front soon and I am looking forward to it.

45 mile an hour winds with driving rain in Virginia. Drainage is lousy and roads will start flodding soon.

Central Florida...it's currently 93 degrees after a hot-hot summer. I'm ready for some cooler weather.

60 mile per hour wind gusts. Still have power but there are roof shingles laying around everywhere. Based on pressure, it's the second biggest storm ever for the great lakes area. Waves over Lake Michigan could hit 25 feet. Didn't even know that was possible.

Some serious stuff went through yesterday.

A central USA hurricane?

The Weather Channel is saying that the barometer is reading very low - almost as if we are having a hurricane. Warm in FL?? Come on up - in VA we will hit 36 tomorrow night.
