another bogus snowstorm...

looks like we got another southern ad hoc rainstorm with beer muscles, trying to act like a blizzard.
it rained, sleeted, snowed, then turned back to rain.
the southern storms just don't have cold enough air to keep a good snow going. maybe they need some Viagra ?

heck, they are saying in the 40's on Thur-Fri-Sat-Sun

have to put the plow and snowblowers away, and get the lawnmower back out I guess.....

instead of Bing Crosby's White Christmas, we're gonna have a Wet Christmas....

I hate those

we need a big mile high fan, that blows that warm weather back down south...

the ice on the branches in NEPA is pretty...but also heavy. that's when the branches start breaking and coming down.

In NW Jersey, roads are slick as snot. 2 hour delay for kids. Should have canceled. Our parking pad has a slight incline. I had a **** of a time staying up right. Just about a quarter inch of ice on the car. May have to cancel evening activities if this keeps up.

90min commute in this nonsense. Fortunately the NY Throughway Authority does a good job keeping our wheels turning in the right direction!

We are getting conflicting info for the Rochester NY area..
yesterday they were saying we were in the 6" to 12" snow zone for
Tuesday night, Wednesday, and into Thursday.
(6" to 12" spread out over 48 hours)

I saw one lone weather map online this morning that seemed to suggest
that perhaps the original forecast for 30 degrees (-1C) and wet snow,
might now be 35 degrees (+2C) and mostly sleet/rain.

but now I cant find that map again..and we seem to be back in the snow zone.
The 6:00 news weather guys should have the forecast nailed down tonight.

Sounds like a lot of people are going to be in that "just below" to "just above" freezing mark,
depending on where it ends up, that makes a big difference when it comes to snow.

Here in NW NJ we have plenty of freezing rain, no snow. The temperature just barely got above 32* finally. Don't need the snow blower today but with the lights flickering I might need my generator .
