I gotta name for the weather right now...
Unfortuneately its four letters.....starts with S
THE ZAMBONIE CAFE 2010 - WHERE EVERYONE KNOWS YOUR NAME?
Let it snow let it snow let it snow. It sure does help out our tourism economy down here. Hehe
Well you best be watching the FOUR CORNERS....your turn might be coming to break out the ZAMBONIE!
Got that weathered for the whole week...if it's not raining...it's suppose to snow. What B...S...!
I WANT OUT!!!!
Well, today its red sky in the morning, sailors take warning.
I dont have any new s-n-o-w yet. Thought it was sposed to start last night, but it fizzled out and looks like it will start later today.
ICK... ice and rain?
Snow, yuck. Don't worry about it. Spring will get there in March. Even if it did warm up for a day, or two, right now you'd know not to plant anything quite yet. Mostly sunny and a high of 73 today. What's not to like!!!!
You silly Floridians, thats all you think snow is about? Its not just the gardening jon....but you guys are bgonna get a cold snap off this too.
LOL I know what the snow is all about. It makes it difficult to drive, difficult to get outside and get around. The cold makes the electric bill go up. You have to get outside and labor getting it shoveled/moved. You have to make sure too much doesn't accumulate on the roof. You have to take extra care with the animals I grew up in snow country with lots of lake effect snow and those noreaster snowstorms. My hometowns average winter snowfall is 67 inches and their average winter temperature is 21 degrees. I was only making reference to gardening because this is a gardening website.
PA has 28 inches....I think they are gonna get more. Then another storm is on the horizon
Looks like many are gonna get 6-12 inches from Tues-Wedn evening and then a new storm will be on the way. It's gonna take a change in the jet stream/weather patterns to break this cycle.
Just was outside...I keep thinking spring.. but.... the nose twitching aint working....
Break out the hot chocolate....
ZONE 5A.. Midstates....
Plug in the zambonies......we got more coming on top of whats already plowed. Winds gonna pick up.. its powder now.. and blizzard condition time soon coming..
Im moving to Canada! How is it you guys got better weather up north than us here! LOL!
Well looks like after tomorrow passes the weather will simmer down.. bet its gonna feel and get ccccold.
Snow forecast for tomorrow. Just ran out of fire wood. It's been raining so much,the guy we by wood from can't get a load to us because he gets stuck out on his wood lot so we get to burn this blasted high dollar buthane. Have little electric heaters but when it's this cold you have to sit right on top of them to get warm. Get's too cold we'll have to shut down part of the house and live out of the living room,kitchen and master bedroom until warmer weather. Big houses are nice until it comes to heating them.
Well you be careful with them thar spAceout heaters.. been there done that... Had one almost catch fire but good thing the dawg noticed it sparking and started barking at it.
I just got LP..GA-ROAN
Oh, now the radio guy says it was a 4.3 quake. Well chot just rattle the bones here will ya.
Me thinks I am gonna go back to bed. Blowing snow...
I've already had one go off like the 4th.of July back in Dec. Got the burnt mark on the floor to prove it. I only run them when we're here and only during the day.
mine too, just unplugged the stupid thing and chucked it in the cold.
Luckily the storm just grazed us, tracked to the south and east, and only got 6 inches of snow yesterday. Doesn't it kill you when the south gets a half inch of snow and declares it an emergency?! And yes, I think the wabbit would be twoast if it chewed through the wire!
I will now go gaze lovingly at the seedlings under the grow lights and think of the first crocus of the year.

The problem when they get snow in the South (NC, SC, GA, AL, MS) is their lack of enough/proper equipment to remove it. It takes them forever to clear the main roads. It probably, eventually, melts before they even get to the rural side roads.
All we got from the latest weather stuff was hurricane force winds (as quoted by the weather monkies on TV). Indeed they were literally howling winds. Power outages all over the state adding to the previous backlog of outages from the snow. Apparently, whatever had already melted and left the ground soaked through also made for shakey root support for the trees and then the wind whipped in and knocked a bunch of them down. My power was out when I got home around 4:30 (went out around 3pm) and was back on around 8 pm. Oh, and we got to actually catch 2 tranformers blow right after driving past them on the way home! There is something so creepy sounding when you hear the pop and crackling electric sizzle of those things going. Sorta like the lightning rod thing you see in the Frankenstein movies to get the creature charged up:)
so far no snow but it's suppose to start later this evening or some time during the night.
Better than chattering! Put yer teeth back in will ya!
Yeah of the jar by yer bed.. silly goose! Thats where ya never take them out.
Dag gum it!
