Good thing you don't need to be anywhere. My employer would expect you to be at work and punish you if you're not. Hopefully the bosses up there have more sense.

I probably shouldn't say anything but it's been quite nice here, high today of 11. Not much snow, at least compared to last year when we got 12 inches on Christmas Eve. Temperatures not bad either; the coldest predicted for the next 10 days is about -1. This time of year -30 would not be unusual.

Neighbor's son came down from Philly to visit for Christmas. He was supposed to fly back Monday. I called her earlier this evening and suggested he might want to change his flight to Tuesday ASAP because getting home on Monday wasn't looking good. Haven't heard the result.

If anyone is still not convinced to NOT travel, show (or email) them this:

NWS - Enhanced Doppler Radar National Mosaic Loop

The entire Eastern seaboard is being affected by this monster storm. This is not trivial weather.

Tonight and tomorrow night we are supposed to have a hard freeze here in central Florida. It's been cold here since Dec. 1st. Last year it was cold from Jan 1st into March. The first 2 years we were here we didn't have to turn on the heat. The last 2 winters we haven't shut if off. Thinking of moving south and get away from the Tundra.

My brother's driving home from New Hampshire to Rhode Island today, right into the blizzard. But they left early, I think they are just going to hit some snow before they get home. In Kansas City it's just cold but now the sun is out.

That's like a joke we have up here in Wisconsin. "What do you call a tourist in Wisconsin in January?" LOST!

I knew you could. Mister Rogers would be so proud.

We are now in the grips of the mess. Hope he got home OK.

PS I am here in Dracut MA on a holiday visit.

I always used to tell DW "it never snows at the beach". Part of my argument for moving there. So we're in Leesburg (DC area) for the holidays, and we got a dusting. But back home they're looking at 10 - 15 inches. Driving home into it tomorrow. If possible. I won't hear the end of this anytime soon.

Big Storm blowing into PHX.
Forecast is for Hard Freeze warnings for outlying areas., with Snow down to 2000' Elevation. (Hopefully I'll be able to post some desert snow pictures.)

Need to get out to cover the Bougainvillea and Lantana...
