If there is anybody still out there, hello. Just wondering how youse
folks are doing with the weather and all. Here in So. Cal., we have
about three feet on the ground (try to picture that) with more on the
way. I can see the top of the deck railing, if only just. Today I will
try to dig out the 4wd truck so we can get to the post office and
grocery store tomorrow. About the only service left here is the LA
Times newspaper fairy who, somehow, still plunks a bright orange package
on the driveway every morning before 5:30. The guy is a wizard.
Otherwise, we are in good shape (figuratively). We have lost power four
times in the last week, but it has come back on within 15 minutes each
time. Then go to http://www.angelfire.com/wa/zzaran/calvin.html for a
selection of Calvin and Hobbes' best snowman cartoons. Enjoy.
Other than seeing Calvin in the classic pose urinating on
logos on the windows of pickups, that is.
Well this is a case of ignorance is bliss. I always thought that was
Bart Simpson. :) Thanks for the heads up though.
Well, I'd gladly trade...we're under freezing rain which is expected to
last the rest of today, tonight and tomorrow morning before it
(eventually) is <supposed> to turn over to snow...the rumbles of thunder
are certainly indicative there's enough warm air and moisture aloft to
make it a fairly high likelihood they're not far off... :(
So far, no wind, but that rarely holds for long here...
Of course, here (in Edmonton AB), it's been between -20 and -30 degrees
Celcius for the last week. This week, it's suppposed to warm up to close to
freezing tomorrow, but then drop down again to -15/-30. And to think I left
Miami, FL for this...
BTW, you've got more snow than us. Too damn cold to snow here!
Edmonton was absolutely beautiful, there and going there (flying over the
Rockies). But then, I was in Edmonton in August of that year. You have
been to the Parliment Building, top floor, magic spot, haven't you? If
not, you really must. I was not impressed at all until I stood there - it
*really* does sound like water is going to be pouring all over you!
We got about 2' on Christmas eve but the temperature went up into the mid 50
a few days later. There is no snow on the ground...
IN BUFFALO, NY
(not complaining though) :-).
Buffalo, NY - USA
(Remove "SPAM" from email address to reply)
...and here in Syracuse where we normally get a lot more snow than Buffalo
(though they get more press for their snow), we've had diddly for snow this
year. We've had a couple of dustings, one front that dumped a foot, and
that's it. Now - not a flake of snow on the ground. Hopefully that will
change before too long.
I came back from a vacation in my hometown in southern LA on 12-26 to
find the snow plowed in up to the hood of the car in the long-term
parking lot at the airport in Toledo. Got back to the house--we had to
park in the neighbor's driveway that Sunday night. I spent about an
hour and a half that Sunday night clearing a car-sized spot in our
driveway--snow between knee and waist deep in the driveway. My
favorite part of this anecdote is that our neighbor on the other side
pulled into his driveway about 15 minutes into shoveling. I know he
has a snowblower, and he knows I know he has a snowblower. So he pulls
in and looks at me, and I look at him looking at me, and he looks at me
looking at him, and he goes right inside and does whatever he does.
Bastard. See if I weedwack his fence THIS friggin spring.
We've got about 8" on the ground (got about 3" over Christmas and NY),
and are currently at -40 with wind chill. It'll be colder overnight as
the wind picks up.
Pretty tough on the dog, who's a wiener dog/terrier cross and has no
undercoat to speak of. It's pretty much a 20 foot dash 'n pee.
