Looks like the "East Coast Weather-persons" were, as the title suggests, off and need to reset their time clocks by 24hrs.Is it snowing bad? Talk to us "left coasters"...
We got about 4 inches of snow, followed by sleet and freezing rain. All the trees were glazed this morning. It started to snow again this afternoon. We'll see how much accumulates in the second round. AC *relatively accurate so far*
Winter tends to be this way - despite folks saying there will be no more snow.Weather likes to surprise weather forvasters.
Hope your trees don't decide to break... and only bend... under the load. Trust me, we know about "tall trees" in the PNW. Here's the root ball of a fallen dougie (big 2008 storm), out near the coast... Mrs PL is used for scale.https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-mPBWvtH/1/5fba618a/X2/i-...
20 years in Colorado taught me this Howie...How are things in SC, from this event?<< ww.didnotaffectWashingtonState.pl/ >>
Before I visited out there, I always wondered where the telephone poles in the midwest came from.AC *who knew*
Yep, we have a Weyerhaeuser pole farm within 5 miles of where I reside... storage, treatment and aging. They gotta have a few 1000 there, all horizontal. Takes up maybe 5 acres.Their start farm is within a mile and occupies a dozen acres. BTW, harvest is ~20 years. No longer, no shorter... for economic and growth effectiveness. I had never seen either of these, till I moved here. One of our natural renewable resources. Grows great up here.
This morning it looks like about 2 inches more and it's still snowing. AC *the weather guys in our area have been pretty accurate*
So it's still snowing. I'd say accumulation is up about an inch and a half (total today 3 1/2), but it hasn't stopped yet.AC *good grief*
Nice! Give yourself a break, go make a snow angel! I do miss getting up, in the morning, to see a nice white layer on the ground. There is something cleansing about it... and then you have to shovel! )o:
The sun just came out so I will try to get the steps and the main walk done in a bit.AC *temps are up tomorrow so hopefully the sidewalk will clear on it's own tomorrow*
Ooooo... don't forget your sunglasses. Snow blind...But, if you let it melt and refreeze, you'll have an ice rink. Got your skates handy?Yea, gotta luv the sun, sometimes. Other times it can cause headaches thru a day...
But, if you let it melt and refreeze, you'll have an ice rink.One of the best moves I ever made was to have my walk done with pavers. I don't know how but it's like they hold heat and don't allow for the snow to accumulate the same as other surfaces.Yea, gotta luv the sun, sometimes.I'm one of those who prefers sun all the time, except when I'm trying to sleep.AC *and sometimes even then*
"How are things in SC, from this event?"*****************************************************Well ----- nada.We had some rain over the weekend - but not a bunch. You have to get up intothe Blue Ridge to get much snow normally. The NC-Tenn ridge-line border tends torun about twenty degrees colder than the midlands - and tends to drop moisture there.Howie52Since moving here from Erie,Pa -32 years back - I have only shoveled snow three times.Ice storms have come through somewhat more frequently.
Well ----- nada.~~~G O O D ! Same here! (O:<< ww.luvingnoneventfulevents.since1902.pl >>
