We got more snow over night. The weather station said 5 inches but I think it was more like 4 inches, still it’s added to what we had last Friday into Saturday. The biggest add on for this one was that yesterday morning was mostly freezing drizzle so we had a thin sheet of ice under the snow that happened later in the evening. Yeah, slippery roads. Also forecasted to have substantially below 0 temps on Thursday night (- 20F) and 0 on Friday, so with wind chills that could be very cold, and forecast for more snow Thursday thru next Monday, we will see how well the weather forecasters called it. Good day (and week end) to stay in and maybe spin or knit :). Hope everyone is safe and warm.
We got our 2nd snow storm of the winter, last Friday overnight into Saturday. We ended up with about 5 to 6 inches depending on where you took the measurement. We were spared the ice and freezing rain with the storm, but we did have minus temps over night and with wind chills they said it could get down to -20, I didn’t check to see what it actually did get down to with the wind chill, it was enough that it was below zero :P. It was up to 9 today and tonight is suppose to be down to -4. BRRRR, but on Monday it is suppose to be in the teens and maybe to 30 on Wed, woot woot a heat wave :P. Looks like more snow on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, doesn’t look like much but the temps by Friday will be back to minus numbers. Friday ambient temp will be -3 and -10 over night, wind chills will make it feel colder than that. Looks like Old Man winter is finally here. Only good thing about that is, we can now start to look forward to SPRING! Ok, so now I start asking, is it Spring yet?
We have finally received our first substantial snowfall for the 2018-2019 winter season and it’s already into January. We have a had a few little snow storms this season, but you noticed I didn’t even post a picture they were so minor. We will probably end up with between 3 and 4 inches. It started last night sometime (I was a sleep :P) and it is still snowing (about 1:30 pm my time). I took this picture about 10:00 am. The weather map shows it continuing until sometime after 7:30 pm. These are tiny flakes so it take a lot to make an inch :P. I hear the snow plows going over the roads off and on, noisy critters they are. 😛
Happy 29th Birthday (again) Dad!!! Best Dad in the world!!
Our weather report says snow over night and into tomorrow totaling between 1 and 3 inches. In the 30’s here today and 20’s to low 30’s tomorrow, sigh. Guess the Old Farmers Almanac is gonna be right about more snow and colder temps this winter.
**UPDATE** The snow here was only a trace, 1″ and up was south of us. But it was our first snow for the 2018-2019 winter. Yeah, it’s already melted :P.
