Realize first that I mowed the lawn 2 days ago.  This mess was unexpected, and very unseasonal. Usually we don't get anything like this for another month.

 

 


Tragic!!! Meanwhile some parts of Australia are experiencing temperatures in the low 40's Centigrade. Oh well......

Flurries?  We had 15+ inches on tues. I didn't finish digging out until yesterday.  To make it even more fun, the temps dropped to 4 F, with a wind chill of -11F Weds. morning.
 
From last Sat. to this morning, I burned a 1/4 cord of wood. [A cord is 4x4x8] just to supplement
our central heating.
 
And the best part,  the weatherman said we may get to do it all over again on Sunday.Censored
 
To put it into perspective, 2 winters ago we had a total of 7.5 inches for the season.  Last winter we had 2.5.  This year we have had a total of 34", and it isn't Feb. yet.

We were suffering from dry winter. After the first snow, there was no rain so people have started rain prays in different parts of Turkey. Finally we are getting rain

Well, the weatherman said Sunday, but I'm sitting here watching it snow yet again.  We have 2 more inches and counting.
This was supposed to be "light flurries", a "dusting".  The main roads are good, but the sidestreets were still covered with a layer of compacted snow which has iced over.  2 inches of dry powder on compacted base may be great for skiers, but driving on it can be exciting.

And, where I live (South Mississippi, USA) the winter is over in about five weeks at the most!

Be careful my friends!

The forcast for the South isn't very good.  Opuslola could be shoveling snow, instead of what he usually shovels. Wink The call is for 3-6 inches from New Orleans east.
 
Those folks are just not equipped to handle that kind of stuff.
 
Here it's just the cold now.  Yesterday it got up to 46F. By 10pm it was 18F.  This AM it was 5F with a windchill of -10.
The Barnegat Bay is frozen over for the first time in 40 years and the Delaware is more frozen in than it was last week.

same thing is happening in Turkey too, there is no rain or snow. I think, today I saw the last snow of the winter, but it was not strong enough.

Sun came out at 1122 hours and the temp is pushing 60 F once more.  Even got the pig to out and bask in the sunlight, along with the dogs, the cats and all the other @#$%&*! household wildlife.  Ouch

Well Red, you have forced your crappy weather upon me! It has been sleeting for hours and hours of snow is expected later tonight, along with the temp. expected to fall to around 22 degrees F.

I might well wake up with 6" of snow on top of a layer of ice. Wow! What fun it will be. Hundreds of people who live here cannot get to work or go home because most all of the roads are closed.

Hey! I live about 2,000 feet from the Gulf of Mexico! This might just well be a 50 year storm?

Oh! right now at 1645 hours Central time, all of the roofs, yards and roads have a good coating of ice!

Good luck up there!

Rondo

Woke up to another round of fresh powder, about 1.5-2 inches.  Light enough to be able to use the leaf blower to clear off the cars and sidewalk.
 
Ron, the towns down where you are don't own things like snow plows and truck mounted salters. They usually don't have need of them.  If you have to melt the ice and can't find Rock Salt or Calcium Chloride, call your local farm or garden supply and ask if they have "prilled urea" or some other high Nitrogen fertilizer.  Urea works best, but any high nitro fert will do the job.  If it has a gravel carrier, it will help with traction.  I've used in very heavy winters when all other sources and supplies are gone.

Bright, clear and sunny again today.  Most of the snow will be gone by this afternoon.

Now I remember why I don't live up North or back east.  Big smile

Snow is something I usually see on mountain tops here in Tasmania. I guess we're very lucky to have the climate that we do. No tropical cyclones like our northern states, no excessive heat waves of over 40 degrees Celsius, Tassie really is the "promised land".
