We're in the middle of "Snowmaggedon: Chapter Two" here in central PA. We got over six inches last night, and another foot is expected today. It's like a blizzard out there right now, but so far, we still have electricity. DD got a great video of Gracie and I romping in the snow this morning, before it got bad out. School was canceled today and for TOMORROW already, too. DH may have to hunker down in town for the night. Snowfall records will be the biggest in U.S. HISTORY in D.C., Philly, Baltimore, and elsewhere!

As long as the electic stays on, it's amazing! If the power goes out, it will be a nightmare!
Good luck Gracies!

Another bad storm yesterday and snowed in today!
I feel like I'm living in Minnesota! The accumulated snow in our yard is over our knees!

Ohio State campus is closed today! They hardly ever do that!

I live in Alabama, snow is rare but not unheard of. Friday the 12th we got 3--4 inches, that much IS pretty rare. Sunday, it rained briefly and iced up the roads. Monday at 5 pm news, the weatherman says--snow is on the way tonight, and yes, we got a couple of inches within two hours of his forecast (usually they forecast snow events about a week in advance--events that never happen). I am amazed that we heard nothing about last night's snow until about 30 minutes before it happened!

Well, i'd be all to happy to change with you. Right now we are having the coldest and snowiest winter in decades. Another snow-warning is on the weather-forecast telling about 10 - 20 cm of snow coming this night... and we've already up to our thighs in snow.

i live in Philly and i've seen things this year that i've never witnessed before...like record snowfalls... insects flying amid snowflakes in January and February and wild flowers blooming on my lawn in freezing weather...

not to mention birds flying south for the winter not in early November as they usually do but in early January...everything seems to be out of whack.

We are forecast to have up to 3 inches of snow overnight and tomorrow.

Last time they forecast snow, about 2 weeks ago, it didn't happen.

Praying that it won't this time.

Yes, I know 3 inches is nothing compared to other people. But for where I live, it's significant.

So.....the Weather Channel says we now have an accumulation on the ground of 2.5 inches.

I went out and stuck a ruler in the snow at the flattest part of my yard, and it sunk to 4 inches.

It is still snowing, and they are predicting more....I think they said up to 2 inches more.

It's pretty.....but every bone in my body aches.

Ah, well.

There are poor people freezing. And I am counting my blessings. Yes, really!

Expecting a blizzard tomorrow-a foot to two feet of heavy wet snow combined with 50 mph winds-ugh!They are calling it a snow hurricane-shades of Whitleys superstorm!Expecting it to be a monster.

You and everyone dealing with these monster storms, are in my thoughts and prayers.

In fact, I worry A LOT about this; about what we are not hearing in MSM about how many people are suffering, perhaps dying, as a result of these storms, and the power outages that result.

It is terryfying.

Please post again, and let me/us know you are allright, okay?

Right now it has been snowing since early morning-but the snow is starting to get heavier and the wind is increasing.

They are saying that the worst of the storm will arrive this evening and continue overnight, with heavier snow and winds gusting to 50 mph..

I hope we don't lose power-but if we do, we will still have heat because we have a gas fireplace.I have no intentions of going out-my work has been canceled,so I will just hunker down and wait it out.

Just watched Mike Seidel on the Weather Channel-he is here in the Binghamton area-he said the snow is powdery, not wet and heavy. It may drift a lot more, but power outages are less likely.

Sure is beautiful out there right now,wind blowing sparkling snow across the yard,everything looking pure and white, like Mother Nature just changed the bed linens.

Kathy, I just looked at your current conditions and forecast. You are in my prayers, and I hope that you are able to continue to enjoy the beauty, with none of the danger!

I'm glad to hear that you have a gas fireplace. I have a gas starter in my fireplace, but no gas logs. I am deathly allergic to wood smoke, so I cannot burn wood. Once in a while, I burn one of the fire log things, but just for ambience.

Obviously, the snow we had the other day (I ended up with 5.5 inches) is nothing compared to what you and others are dealing with. But, like I said, where I live, even a couple of inches of snow is a rare thing.

It was beautiful to look at here, as well. And it only snowed for less than 24 hours, and was mostly all melted by the end of the next day.

The way things are going, it appears that the time is coming when even places like where I live will no longer be "safe" from the extremes of weather.

I am worried about my mom. She lives in cornwall, in Orange County NY. There are massive power outages there, the phones are not working (even cell phones) and she is alone in a big house, maybe with no heat.she is 84. I called my daughter, but we lost service. I managed to connect with her on facebook, and she said she will look in on my mom and try to get her to someplace warm if she has no power.

My daughter just called-my mom's old land line works intermittantly-it went in and out and we could barely hear one another.
Mom is fine-refuses to leave the house-but a neighbor came by and shoveled her snow. He has a woodstove and will keep checking on her until my sister can get there tomorrow. Mom has no power or heat, but the neighbors are all home and she will go to them for help if need be.
I threatened her and told her I nearly called the police and she got angry, but at least I think I got through to her about the severity of the situation.

Kathy,

That is good news.

They are not easy at that age. Threatening to call the police was good as it made her understand better. She won't be mad at you for long.

You are a very good daughter...and your Mother know it.

Did other areas in the U.S. went from having a long winter (cooler temperatures) to sudden warm, almost summer temperatures? I live in Florida and it seems that we didn't have Spring this year... I mean that there wasn't a gradual warming, but a sudden warming... at least it seems that way to me.

I've never had to wear my down coat to work before in May. I'm usually in light, short sleeve shirts and a windbreaker. This has been a really cold. long, wet spring, with record breaking cold. I think this trend will continue. It's like we get a hint of warmer, normal, temps and then it doesn't last...

How about a tornado in Bridgeport, CT. They are very rare here, although they do happen. Waterbury for example, which is not far off, has had 4 confirmed since 1955.

The crazy part for me is that...I was there. I was in the city hall building when it went through. What a crazy thing to see.

http://www.examiner.com/x-31031-Providence-Headlines-Examiner~y2010m6d25-Bridgep ort-CT-tornado-is-confirmed-by-Weather-Service-RI-escapes-severe-thunderstorms

I have some pictures on my facebook for anyone who is facebook friends with me, if not and you'd like to be shoot me a pm. Nothing to insane picture wise, just the parking lot of the city hall littered with trees and branches all our work van. The windows were pulsating in and out in the building, thought they were going to all blow out, one did in a stair well and water was coing down the stairs like a water fall.

I'm shocked no one was killed. 30 injured I think. There even pieces of a big street sign all shredded down to sheet metal from a highway bridge that goes over the city streets, big hunks of metal all down on the road, again, amazed no one was killed, and thank god! What an adventure. This was the 1st time I've worked in or even have been in Bridgeport, lol what were the odds!

Still a tough thing for that city, its not the best off city thats for sure, lots of poverty stricken areas and high crime rates, probably the last thing a lot of these people needed. There was a lot of property damage.
In spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can't build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery and death. -Anne Frank

It's been raining almost nonstop for a week. Remnants of Alex.

There is not a day without rain in our forecast (as of this moment on The Weather Channel) until Monday, July 12th.

We were having record highs before the rains came......but, we still had already had WAY more rain than normal, even before Alex.

If there doesn't come a break soon, my grass is going to be a foot high. And the mosquitoes will be coming out, whereas, they HAD been almost nonexistent so far this season.

On the other hand, I have not had to run the air conditioning in over a week now, and things are sure looking green around here, and my water bill for June will be a lot less than it was for May!!

It is so strange. The weather here is much more like it used to be during late August/early September.

Even my neighbor commented that the light and the "feel" is more like fall.

The last several nights, it has been amazingly cool, and I have been able to open windows. In fact, it got super cool last night! I had to turn the ceiling fans on low!

The grass is even already starting to go dormant! This usually doesn't show up till late September.

My cats are shedding like crazy, and putting on thicker coats already. VERY unusual.

And the mosquitos! Don't even get me started on them!

SW,

Interesting that you are experiencing that type of weather.

Here, even though it is hot as a firecracker my fall plants are blooming now when they normally bloom in late August to mid September. I saw a wooly caterpillar last month that had the thickest 'wool' on it I have ever seen and that is about 2 months early as well.

Interesting. I wonder if we are in for a bad and early Winter. If so, the only up side to that for us is that the hurricanes will subside sooner and not be as bad in their peak of late Sept. through October.

Some of the trees have yellow leaves on them as well.

I guess time will tell....

Yes, yellow leaves on some of the trees. I had not even consciously thought about that till you said it.

I have NOT seen any wooly caterpillars yet.

We had another strange thing this season; the profusion of SO MANY colorful butterflies really early in the season; then, they just disappeared in June.

We usually have lots of them in July, and then another crop in late August and September.

I am just now starting to see a few more showing up. Perhaps they will increase to "normal" for August, and then, the Monarchs will show up in September.

We had an absolute TON of ladybugs in May and June. But, they, too, have pretty much disappeared. I must admit, I don't know that much about what should be "normal", because they had become really rare for many years. I don't remember EVER seeing so many as we had this spring, even in my childhood.

Another "good thing" is that I have seen more bees this year, than for several years. That made me happy.....even though I am deathly allergic!

The humidity gets worse every year. Truly, this year, during June and early July, it was not that different than Houston, in terms of heat index due to humidity.

Some of what I am experiencing is probably due to "micro-climates" within town neighborhoods, and seems so different to me, because of all the years I spent out in the country, surrounded by cotton fields and mesquite-filled desert....where my little home was pretty much the only "oasis" within a hot dry wasteland.

It's entirely different in town, and after 20+ years out in the country, it seems like a different place.

I know one thing for sure, I RARELY dealt with the mosquito problem when I lived out in the desert country.....even though it was only 8 miles from where I live now!

I live on Juan de Fuca Strait and the spring and summer weather has been cool. We had ample rain during the spring and early summer, but the leaves on our big tree out on the front lawn has 1/2 the leave as normal, and the leaves which are usually larger than your hand, but they are 1/2 the size as normal. Mother Nature must be getting ready for something this fall/winter.

When we had that EMP hit us this week, everything, the sky, the grass, trees, cars, people, the whole atmosphere had a pink cast to it the entire time the sun was up. Even when it was partially hazy, the same atmospheric pink was visible to me for 3 whole days. Most other people couldn't see it, but I could and it was really strange. (I can see auras too, so maybe that's why I could see it and others could not!)

Strange is more like it. I'm wondering what the geo-synch satellites that monitor the Earth's magnetosphere, etc. have captured during this solar event... did it rip some of our protective shield away... thus the pink atmosphere allowing in some unknown radiation?

Maybe it was part of the sun's aura, that we don't usually see??? Reminds me of the scene in lost where the sky turned purple... You should share that with David Sereda see what he thinks?

I have never harvested tomatoes this late, unusually warm fall. I'm hoping for a more "normal" winter!

Yesterday afternoon we got hit with it in Central Ohio!

I was looking out my patio door at the ominous dark gray clouds when the cows in the field started to run to the barn. Then I saw a wall of white coming across the field. Have never seen that before. High winds and torrential rain. I grabbed my laptop and scrambled to the basement right before a large tree almost crashed onto the house. Luckily it got caught up in another tree. The storm hit hard and fast! No damage other than that but it was scary! A tornado touched down six miles west of us!

Sharon, I am so glad that you are okay!

I bet you are glad to have a basement, huh?

Do you get a good internet connection down there in the basement?

I wish I had a basement!

Wishing you no more scary weather!

Thank you, Second Wind! We have 'Road Runner' and can take our laptops all over the house.
I was too scared to be on it though. I just grabbed it because I wanted to SAVE it! LOL

Tornado season, in Ohio, is typically in the Spring time.

Yes, it is nice to have somewhere to run to if we have to.

Victoria: I didn't want to go through archives, so, what happened up there during the big storm of Dec. 2/3 2007? We here on the SW coast were hit HARD, but was there much on the news? NOOOOOO...but LEWIS COUNTY FLOODED, OMG!!!!! Hello? Lewis County floods EVERY FREAKING YEAR...and the idiots rebuild in the flood plain every year...and then are surprised when it happens again! We had 150+ mph winds, I lost a lot of roof and a good chunk of my back porch, people lost barns, etc, and what did FEMA do? NOT A DAMN THING!!!! NOTHING! I know of NO ONE who got ANY help from them. We're STILL repairing damage! A big stretch of highway 101 had trees downed just like the old footage you see from Mt. St. Helens...laid out like snapped-off matchsticks.

And lemme tell ya something...this global warming is causing me to freeze my heinie off! Few people had apples this year, there were NO walnuts either here or Eastern Washington/Idaho, NO apricots on the trees that I saw, few hydrangeas, and the ones that did bloom got burned by 100 degree heat in July (the ONE bit of summer we had). Just freakish.

When I was a kid, we used to get big, deep snows...now we seldom get any (which, for the most part, is fine by me). I just don't want any more hurricanes or whatever they're supposed to be called on the west coast! We get wind storms (wind storm season is coming, and my roof is leaking EVERYWHERE)--November is usually the beginning of the big storm season.

I don't remember much that was outstanding about Dec 2007. but Dec 2008 was a real monster with knee-deep snow and 6" ice on the sidewalks and roads. Big winds too... snow and blow till January. Hope that answers your question badpony.
