Blizzard

Recommended Posts

So I just talked to a friend in eastern Connecticut. He said they had a little more than two feet on the ground and it's still snowing.

 

Here in the Southern Black Hills of South Dakota it is close to seventy degrees today. Not that I would ever gloat. :P

 

So how have the rest of you in the Northeast made out? I hope you all stay safe and warm. My friend said the snow was light, but still, when you shovel take it a little at a time. Stay off the roads, snuggle up with a good book and your favorite gluten-free snacks, and remember, this too shall pass.


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

We even heard about the storm up here (Alberta, Canada).  When the east gets hit, we in the west usually have mild weather.  We've been breaking record highs for the past few days.  I think it is 15C right now.

 

Good luck with the snow.  :ph34r:

I have just shy of 3 feet of snow in my yard right now. It was an awesome storm, very beautiful, although I am not on the coast where there was widespread destruction. I plan on snowshoeing tomorrow as work has been called off again. It's kind of nice the way a blizzard will slow everyone down. They are forecasting the possibility of more snow on Monday but it is New England in winter so it's nothing new. Up to now, we have had little to no snow........I guess we just got it all in one storm!

We pulled a wagon full of Girl Scout cookies around the neighborhood in what felt like scorching hea on Sunday! It has been in the 80's in Los Angeles. Came home from band rehearsal tonight and threw open all the windows! It was too hot in the house. Wishing for cooler weather. I got a few nice scarves at Christmas and would like to wear them.

We had some rougher winter weather earlier in the month and there were some nasty traffic accidents (like a 193 vehicle pile up on I-94). The moral of the story is that if the weather gets into white out conditions, don't bother travelling! 

 

Current temp outside is 11 degrees. Propane prices are at an almost unbelievable $1.70 per gallon. Last winter, they skyrocketed at the peak of the nasty weather. It got as bad as -40 with wind chill. Many people simply had to use alternative heating methods--after all who can afford $5 per gallon for propane?

Wow! I remember Seeing that pile up on the news!

That is awful about the current cost of propane. We just have to purchase it for the RV or the BBQ grille. We never run the heater in the RV, but then we never go anywhere where it goes below freezing. I guess we are used to tent camping where layering up is the rule. We use propane to run the frig or cooking stove.

We get nailed in the summer when we run the a/c.

Actually I meant that the current price of propane is great! It was last winter that the prices soared up to $5 per gallon and lots of people couldn't afford to get propane.

 

It's not uncommon for propane to go well over $2 per gallon in the winter, so the current price of $1.70 per gallon is a great winter price.

It was -4 last night.  we have over a foot of snow on the ground.  The drifting was really bad with this storm though.  For those that don't know, drifting is when the snow blows around.  It can leave some areas bare to the ground, and areas- like in front of the door to your house- 4 to 5 feet high.  Kids had 2 days off of school. 

 

Has anyone ever noticed that kids act like little barometers?  They just get hyper active during the time the atmospheric pressure is building.

We have been getting hammered in Upstate NY also. Windchills down into the -30s tomorrow and Monday. We have had more snow than we have had since a blizzard in the early 90's and the snow that is going on now will leave another 6 to 12 inches. My poor old body is not looking forward to more shoveling. And we haven't gotten anywhere near the amount some places farther east have gotten. I can only imagine what the poor folks in Boston area are going through. Hope everyone stays safe.

We're having the opposite experience up here in the west. It has been a really mild winter.  It even rained once in January and this morning too - sooooo weird.

 

I hope the snow isn't a real heavy one for you.
