Even harder freeze this morning. Yesterday I was able to hose the layer of ice off my car. This morning, while the hose wasn't completely frozen, only a little water trickled out. Had to go back in to get a pitcher of warm water. It could've snowed, but the cloud cover had already buggered off.

It just started snowing like a mofo here. We only had like 1-3" predicted, but who even knows anymore? That's what they said when we had that mini-blizzard a little bit ago.

It was very mild, even warm in places today. Tomorrow the high is supposed to be early and falling temps all day as the season remember's that it's winter.

It snowed all day, after snowing a good chunk of yesterday. It was very pretty to watch, but awful to drive in. :snow::snow::snow:

Apparently, the whole Seattle area has been flung into a panic because it's going to snow more (a lot more) tomorrow.

Look, I get that there are various polar vortices happening around the north, and everybody living with record colds and snowfalls isn't trying to hear it, but...

It has been gloomy and ucky and rainy and cold for days or weeks or months, I can't even tell anymore. I'm morose and miserable. I might as well have stayed in Georgia. :brooding:

Couldn’t get a direct flight to the east coast for my meetings starting tomorrow, so I planned to spend all day getting there via Kansas City.

So here I was, all checked in and boarded, got me an aisle seat. Then the pilot says that all flights into my destination airport are canceled. :gah:

So I now have a nonstop scheduled for tomorrow morning. IF the weather would be so kind as to allow our planes to land without getting us all killed.

Oh, yeah. They assured me they’d pulled my checked bag off the plane. NOPE. It’s on its way to KC now; hopefully it’ll get to the coast ahead of me.

Only just under that here, and has been raining onto the snow we had for days.

I now have a pretty good idea what it feels like to have lake ice break under you as we were repeatedly warned as children in daily PSA's would inevitably happen if we went on the ice, just without *quite* as disastrous results. When walking across the car par at work this morning the seemingly solid ground under me just gave way, more cracked with each step, and suddenly I was in about 10 cm of water that extended for several meters each way.
Drying my boots by my desk, not quite confident enough to take my wet socks off.

We were supposed to have polar cold. Right now we just have rain. Cold hard rain (thanks Bob Dylan), but not much else

Now I have clothes and stuff. That means I have to actually do what I planned to do, but that’s tomorrow. Tonight is for drinking way too much beer. :drunk:

This morning is right at freezing, but very little ice because the rain stopped hours ago. It is supposed get into the upper 40s today, and 50s Wednesday, but Thursday, near 70, just before a cold front puts us back into the deep freeze for the weekend.

I have volunteered to man the baked potato bar at the high school basketball game Friday. Two weeks ago, they raised $5100 for some town resident who needs money for medical treatment. This one is a band booster benefit.

ETA: the lower driveway where the trash containers are is nothing but mud, not frozen at all. Note: Tuesday is trash day.
