Careful!

Another storm for the central states


Just what I needed to spice up my mini vacation over the Holidays. So, time on my butt cut short. Oldest son is here and he gets studded snows on all four corners before he heads north, double check the Wheelhorse, ATV and generators, visit with the three elderly ladies down below (wife calls them my gray haired girlfriends) to assure them we will be here to take care of them, send out the emergancy ops plan this afternoon for the company and best of all, uncork that bottle of Glenlivet I just got for Christmas!

I did notice SeanP may be getting a visit from some T'storms soon. Hang in there bud!

No rain in September, 1.25 in in October, 0.1 inch since then. Not a cloud in the sky, though the wind is blowing. Maybe something will blow in.

A "historic" snowstorm coming to Arkansas, according to the local tv stations. And to think I left Colorado to get away from snow!

I don't know what to make of this one. Winds out of the east for a change. It will be a wet, blowing snow.

What do you fellows make of the Weather Channel naming winter storms? Since I quit watching TWC years ago instead relying on weather.gov, I really haven't formed an opinion.

Yep, spent part of Christmas Eve cabling hangar doors and double-tying down everything. Gotta admit the skies looked mighty angry all day yesterday. Rained like a monsoon for most of the day. Temps rose and humidity topped out. Had both AC zones running wide open at the house to cool everything down and dry out. Back to T-shirts and cargo shorts today for casual wear. Ran to Lowe's last night (another story) at 5:30 PM and when we walked back out I almost couldn't find my truck in the parking lot due to some extremely heavy fog. Wife was scheduled to work 6:00-2:00 today (FBO at Pensacola Regional) and has been sitting back reading a book all day. Ain't nothing much getting in and certainly no GA.

Typical Christmas here, hot and muggy. A little snow would at least set a better mood though I am NOT complaining over zero shoveling.

Anyway we can start a good natured virtual snowball fight? It's going to be the perfect snow for it. Since SeanP mentioned running his AC, we should start plastering him first.

You mean like The Weather Channel?

Readers Digest had an interesting article on TV weather reporting.....er I mean exaggeration for the purpose of ratings. Never! No way!
