The weather here is getting crazier by the minute.  First it was snowing quite hard then it turned to freezing rain, then more snow and freezing rain.  By tomorrow afternoon the temp is supposed to be in the low 50s.  Right now it's only around 24 degrees.  It's been a good day to stay in the house and keep warm.

It is so cold here, 4 degrees with chill factors of -7. We have snowny roads with some ice and snow moving in tomorrow, 4-6 inches Saturday and possibly an additional inch on Sunday. Just a good time to stay home.

We had temps on 13 when I left about 6:30 and it is 22 now.  We had a little bit of snow around noon yesterday.  Came down fast and furious for a little while but most of it is gone now.  Good day to stay inside.

Same as usual; high in low 80's and low tonight in mid-50's. We had some black, withered edges on the tomato leaves last week and were told they were caused by the "cold" weather. ???

I (sorta) have a farm in Africa.

We're in the middle of a blizzard this morning here in eastern Maine, at least a foot of snow on the ground already and supposed to snow all day, also20-40 mph winds, a wild day! Haven't lost our power yet, hope we don't.

Stay warm, wherever you are!

 

Remember, if it rains on your picnic it's also raining on your garden!

We are having the most beautiful snowfall right now, big fluffy flakes and turning the ground white and sticking to the trees--like a snow globe. The best part about it is, we dont have to shovel, and it wont last too long.

Lots of bad weather will be moving in starting this evening, as it will be across many parts of the country, the worst part if the ice and freezing rain, snow we can deal with, but ice is impossible. I will be baking for a good part of the day and Hubby will be going into the village for milk and orange juice, then we should be set for what ever mother nature decides to give us.

                             Stay warm and safe.

We have about 10 inches of snow (maybe more) on the ground here (in Wichita) and varying amounts across the state of Kansas.  Its a good day to stay inside and do domestic stuff. Mother Nature has given us a winter wonderland.  Stay safe and stay warm.

Not sure how much is on the ground…over 8 inches. Right now it's kind of the wintery mix stuff…supposed to start snowing again in just a bit. Baked cookies this morning. Best thing to do in this kind of weather.

We had 11.5 inches about noon but have added another couple inches in the last hour or so.  From what I have seen there is very little traffic moving in the state of Kansas and a lot schools and business are closed.  I think it might be easier if they would just put what is opened on the crawl across the bottom of the TV screen.  Weather channel just announced that Kansas City Airport is closed.

Well after receiving a little over 14 inches here in the metro area and 18 inches about 70 miles sw, the sun has been been shining for the last 2 days which has been really pretty and sparkly. Since they are forecasting another storm tomorrow night & Monday with measurements in the same amounts for most of Kansas I decided I had better go get supplies (you know important stuff like chocolate and milk).  The main roads are in pretty good shape (mine hasn't been plowed and is snow packed).

Very windy and raining quite hard at times, the temp must be dropping as we can see ice forming on the trees, tomorrow we are supposed to get snow, this weather is crazy!

After storm Rocky blew through here yesterday the sun is again shining.  We didn't get as much as some predicated (here 6.2 more inches for a total of 21 inches) but enough that the travel is discouraged.  This is the 4th day of no school for most of south central Kansas schools.

Snowing…again.  This is the most snow we have had in YEARS.  I didn't have a problem selling our snowmobiles 7 years ago since we hadn't ridden more than 5 times in 3 years then….and there's only been a few times when I really wished I had one again.  2013 would've been THE year!  58 inches in February alone.  That's like 5 feet of snow.

I'm. Done. With. It.

I could never live in MI, I have little tolerance for cold, right now in SC I'm wearing a heavy sweater and have an elec heater right by my chair and am still cold.

Don't cry because it's over—smile because it happened!

Here comes the mud.  A lot of that 21 inches of snow is melting.  I am not complaining because the moisture is needed so badly.
