Snow
« on: December 31, 2007, 04:44:02 PM »
Looks like Michigan is going to get 4 to 8 inches of snow by tomorrow.
Local weather is saying 6 to 8 .
looks like old Lucas will be shoveling tomorrow, my son is sick with a cold so it looks like it will be all me.
( how many times have i shoveled with a cold)
i will do it in shifts, i have the old truck to fill up for traction, sitting in the middle spot.
( i have to clear out 3 spots, the deck, walk, and the deep stuff the snow plow leaves behind)
i still have some whiskey and soda for when its all done and a tub to soak in.
i will take my time and pay attention to what the body says, i usually don't have a bad time of it.
then make a drink, roll a fatty bobatty, fill up the tub. turn on the tunes and soak for a bit.
let ya all know how it goes
                                       (should have bought that new snow blower)

I'm tempted to start pouring myself some bourbon right now, Lucas.  Good luck with the shoveling.  We've managed to avoid more than a light dusting here thus far in the season.

We're supposed to get snow here, too, but not until tomorrow evening into Wednesday.  Some places will only see 1 - 2 inches, the mountains will see up to 8 inches before all is said and done.  Of course Wednesday is mini's MRI - we have to leave about 7am for PAT at 9am and the test at 11.  Hard to believe that we're back up to 51 by next Monday.  What a completely odd winter we've had.

Hey Lucas,

Except for on TV, movies, video and from a distance, I had never seen snow until last week.  I have this thing about being cold so I have lived my entire life in warm weather locations to tropical.  Last week, there was 4 inches of snow in Mendocino County so I bundled up in some warm clothes and went for a drive.  I don't think, I'll be doing that again  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D Have the best day

Hey Lucas-

Here in Hoosierville, we've had a winter storm warning since about 4:00 p.m.  We're supposed to get 5-9 inches.  Where I live in Indiana is just about 1/2 hour away from the Michigan border.  I totally feel ya! 

Oh, I've never heard it called bobatty before.  Funny! :D

 8)  No snow here ! Can't say I miss it either... We are supposed to have a drop in temperature, tomorrow and Wednesday. These past few days have been great, on the Florida Suncoast, with temps in the 80's.
 Is that one of those "Lake Effect" snow snows, your going to be having up in Michigan. Very familiar with those storms, when I lived in Western New York. Stay safe !!

Hubby just got off the phone with his sister in Tampa and she was talking about having the air conditioner on.  High tomorrow here is 20.  I'm like Betty, though, I don't do heat well at all.

Well, morning here in Hoosierville.  We got a tone of snow last night.  Supposed to get 5 more inches today, 5 more tonight and 3 more tomorrow before it's all over.  Guess I'll be like Lucas and be going in and out shoveling most of the time. :-\  Wish I had a snowblower!

Hello
Not too bad here maybe 4 to 5 inches, damn stuff is wet and heavy.
Got out at 9:00 and I'm all done except i will do more of the yard for the doggie. Nadine is going to look for his sweater and boot him out to play, that will last for about 5 min.
going to get real cold here over night so the roads will be slick tomorrow I'm sure, and its the day we go back to work.
Nadine is having some bean dip for breakfast, and the doggie is begging away. He got into some last night and just loved it. buddy will eat anything except for black olives.
Seems like i will do a Motrin and no need to get loaded up on the booze, damn.
Happy new year my friends.

                                                               love ya all

The wind is blowing like mad here, too. Right now, we're just having rain.  It's supposed to turn to snow later this afternoon and continue until Thursday morning.  CRAP!  I'll get hubby to move the truck down to the bottom of the driveway so we can get out tomorrow for Mini's MRI.  If we have to reschedule, we're looking at sometime in June!  I'm not willing to wait that long.  We've loaded up on salt and our youngest son (4yrs old) got a snow shovel for Christmas and has been begging for snow so he can go help hubby shovel.  I know, he's strange.  Everyone stay bundled up and safe.

50 miles south of cleveland it just started snowing a little bit here.

the kid isn't so strange though Mum. I LOVE shoveling the snow too. You'd think after leaving NC for OH over 20 yrs ago that the novelty would have worn off by now; but it hasn't.  ;D It's one of the things I miss most by moving from my old house to my partner's house (last Dec '06). My old house (across from an elementary school) was on a corner lot so I had lots of sidewalk to shovel. Neighbors used to think I was crazy out shoveling out 3 in the morning. (the neighbors were probably right too LOL)

Unfortunately all I have here to clear off is the driveway - in the 'burbs they don't have many sidewalks. :D However there were two good reasons for moving in with the partner. Not only does he have a 27ft round above-ground pool in the BIG backyard (10x times bigger than the old yard, so the doggies are very happy living here too); but he also owns a snowblower.  ;)

Well, Mikie, you can come here and do the shoveling for me!  I got in a little while ago.  Shoveled from my apartment around to the front one, a path out to my car and cleared off my car.  I cleared off about 9 inches.  We're supposed to get another 10 between now and tomorrow morning and another 3 tomorrow! :P  My neighbors got home while I was shoveling out.  They said they went to Chicago for a concert (I live about an hour and a half away).  They ended up spending the night there because of the weather and said Chicago was nothing like it is here.  There are people stuck in the street out in the front of my apartment.  It really gives a whole new meaning to "winter wonderland."  Hope everyone is staying safe. :-*

I must admit its odd reading about snow and eating heavy wintery food during Dec Jan. Im sweltering it out at 41įC  (106 įF) and fruit salad is all I can handle! I did make "snowmen" out of sand as a kid though....never thought to throw a sand ball! A stupid but curious question- if the snow gets really bad does your employer allow "non shows" because of bad weather without docking your pay?

If it gets to level three in Ohio, only essential employees are allowed on the road. Police, Fire, Hospital staff, Department of Corrections staff, Highway Depts and a few others, anyone else caught, will get a citation. Don't have a wreck, your insurance doesn't have to pay when it's a level three.

So level three means you legally can't drive on the road therefore cannot get to work so your employer cannot dock your pay for not working?

When my hubby worked about an hour away from home, we had a really bad winter storm - December 2002. The store wasnt' allowed to close unless corporate (located in Florida) said it was OK to close.  There were nights when he had to stay overnight with employees because he couldn't make it home.  Finally, the store closed because the employees threatened to walk out.  Hubby called corporate and said either they gave the OK to close, or he'd be stuck hiring all new people.  Corporate gave the OK.  His usual hour drive took him about 3 1/2 hours.  I was scared to death the entire time because there's no cell service between our home and where he used to work.  Salary people didn't get docked, but hourly people didn't get paid.  Hubby gave them the option of using part of the hours from sick leave but it was all corporate would let him offer.

When we lived in Louisiana, it was the same,though.  The day after hurricane Andrew, hubby had to go to work.  No one had electricity, trees were in the streets, roads were flooded, and it was still raining.  But, he had to report to work or be fired.  We were poor college students, so he went to work.

for most jobs, yes. Many notherns states can actually declare an emergency in the middle of a snowstorm and keep all citizens and non-emergency vehicles off the roads for as many days as neccassary. Your employer has no choice when no one is allowed to travel.  ;D Your not docked; but you don't get paid either.

(Thank goodness the part of OH that I'm in, doesn't have but maybe one or two days a year like this, which is plenty for this displaced Southern boy.)

Well, Mikie, you can come here and do the shoveling for me!
I might have to do that! There's just barely snow in the grass and my driveway is just wet now. However, just 15 miles up the road (in Akron), where my partner is working, he's says there's three inches on the ground and it's not stopping; so there's still a hope that I might get enough here to go play in!  ;)

Ok so salary people don't get docked, but hourly people don't get paid. Im guessing students and temps would be up "the creek" because they are the ones that usually take on those hourly christmas period jobs.

Sounds like employers differ. So your not docked due to a big freeze but your pay gets a freeze instead. Ok I think my head is wrapped around that one - thanks:)  BTW, this led me to see if we had a law in place for heat waves? No such law in relation to workers and weather temp limits. Someone did suggest we introduce siesta's to our summer work periods...............great idea. Ok, enough hijacking this thread to appease my curiosity! Have a great new year

the problem isn't so much the temp, it's that snow, like flooding, can simply make travel impossible. If it snows 2 inches an hour, no one, not even an ambulance, can travel in those conditions. So no one works or goes anywhere. (hopefully you've got food in the house, and the snow and ice doesn't bring the power lines down!) If you're salaried, you still get your salary. But if you work hourly, then you just don't get paid cause you didn't work (because your company would be closed).

so the middle of a blizzard is like the middle of a hurricane - while it's seriously snowing (or raining in the hurricane) life just stops until the storms subsides. As soon as the snow slows down enough for plows to scrape roadways clear, life resumes and stores etc open back up - and people go back to work. Everybody gets an unexpected day or two off (let's hope you had food stocked up if it's more than that!); some with pay and some without.  ;)

Unfortunately for people like us, when the electric goes out, we have NOTHING.  Our entire house is electric: stove, baseboard heaters..and we have well water and the pump is electric.  So, no electric, no water, no washing, no bathing, and no flushing of toilets!  It gets really ugly really fast with 8 people (although 1 is still in diapers), 1 bathroom, and no way to flush!  If electric is out for too long, we take stuff out of the fridge and put it out in the snow..just have to make sure the milk doesn't freeze.  And, we have a propane grill, so poor hubby has to cook outside in his parka.  Right now, we've filled up the bathtub with water so we can flush and we keep plenty of bottled water so we can drink.  We end up sleeping downstairs huddled in front of the fireplace (that has electric blowers).  Oh, and last, but not least, we have no phone since our only phone is cordless.  But, a couple of days with no phone...not a big loss in my book.

minismom, it doesn't really matter if you have total electric or not. The new ng gas stoves and furnaces take electric to ignite them. They all take electric to open the regulators. I just go to my nephews they have two fireplaces and it keeps their house warm. A lot of people around here have generators, so when the electric kicks off the generator starts and they have power again.

Braggart! :D  Morning here in Hoosierville.  Got another 10 inches on top of the 9 we already had.  Today we're supposed to get 3-5 more inches before it's all over.  Then, now get this, starting Saturday through Monday the temps are supposed to go from 38-50 and it's supposed to rain all three days!  Great!  We won't be able to go anywhere then because of the flooding!  Anyway, I'm going out in a few minutes to shovel a path around from my apartment to the front apartment, to my car and clean off the car.  I have some movies that are due back today at the library, but I doubt they'll get there until tomorrow.  And tonight the temp is supposed to get to -5.

.. A stupid but curious question- if the snow gets really bad does your employer allow "non shows" because of bad weather without docking your pay?

We rarely get more than a few cms of snow, maybe three times a year.  Once it starts falling most offices empty out, as employers let the workers go home.  Very few people bother buying snow tires, so it makes driving very treacherous.

I love being off work and having nothing to do, and having it snow.
Its such a nice feeling, and knowing you don't have to go out in it.

My niece just bought a country home with glass doors to a huge deck
looking over a small lake. That would be the way to watch the snow come down,
just at home warm and toasty with no where you need to go.
I called her the last snow and ask if she was soaking it all in and she said a big yes.

It snowed here all night no accumulation to speak of but it was 7 degrees with a wind chill of -10 - -20 this morning. It's now 13 degrees out.

Hey, that's not fair! We are almost neighbors and we have plenty enough snow here. When I turned-in at 9 pm last night there was about 1" accumulated. This morning there was 5" and it's been snowing lightly all day. The biting wind/cold temps kept me inside most of the day but now I have the heavy artillery on and will tackle the walk area and up to the garage. Run in and warm up. Run out again and feed the llamas & goats.
40 degree high forecast for Friday w/rain -- will melt the white stuff, nevetheless.  :)

Well, the movies didn't get back to the library today.  It was just too cold to go anywhere.  I did manage to get the snow shoveled, then someone else shoveled and I got my car cleaned off.  It's freezing here.  But hopefully this is the end of the snow for awhile.  I'm wondering if the next weather drama will begin when it rains Saturday, Sunday or Monday.  Tune in folks! :D

Schools around our state were cancelled again today.  It's getting down to 12 tonight so not sure what they'll do about tomorrow.  The snow has finally stopped, but still bitter cold and cloudy.  Tomorrow it's supposed to get up to 41 and 57 by the middle of next week.  This is crazy weather we're having.  There's no snow in the forecast through next Friday (11th), but some rain which is going to cause problems with flooding and creeks as the snow melts.  Looks like the beginning of next week, we're back to walking in a winter muddy mess.

Oh Ray, I feel so bad for you (not).  I did take the movies back to the library today.  The roads weren't that bad-but not that good either.  So, I went sliding merrily along.  No snow forcasted.  Rain coming in, now they're saying Friday through next Wednesday.  That oughta make for a real mess on the roads, with 19 inches of snow.  By Monday it's supposed to be 53 degrees.  Mum, it is strange weather.

I'm in Maryland, 30 miles NW of DC and we haven't gotten anything this season!  I work 3 miles from home now, have a 4WD vehicle now, and love the snow!  I want to see some, I hate the heat, it messes with my diabetes.   :D

The pic is from the Valentines Day ice storm we got in 2007!  I couldn't shovel anything, it was all glazed over!  I am standing on top of about 8 inches of snow and you can still see my boots!

Parts of Cleveland had over a foot and a half of snow while just 50 miles south we have only a dusting on the ground. But it's a very cold and frozen dusting at only 9 degrees! That's a Feb. temp!! Brrr. But then they are predicting 50 by Sat. So weird. Is it global warming or cooling? I say it's both!  ;D

I just keep reminding myself that it's only 5 months until we open the pool! (though it'll probably be 6 months until it's warm enough to actually get IN the pool. LOL)

It's supposed to get up to 30 degrees today.  Yesterday morning, it was only 2 degrees outside, and when I returned some movies to the library, it was like 12.  So I'm looking forward to it getting up to 30.  Maybe I won't have to wear long johns today.

Being as skinny as I have been since I graduated way back in 1980, if it's 40 or lower, I'm wearing long johns! If it's 30 or below, I'm probably wearing those stretchy gloves too. Sure it makes typing a little harder but at least I can still feel my fingers. LOL I love all those Christmas cookies we just had too; cause it's much easier getting through the OH winter at 140 instead of 130 lbs.

I'll let you know when we're closer to our Summer pool party, Pooltag http://reigningpages.com/pooltag, and see if you can make it! We've got hundreds and hundreds of 2-liter bottles stacked up on the patio, so you'll only need some duct tape - and an idea. ;)

Next week it's going to be in the 50's all week so that will be nice even if it rains. Just as long as those winds stay out west. Looks like SF is going to get hammered this afternoon. All you guys on the West Coast be careful today. Make sure you keep your water wings close by.

Yep, here too.  The entire 10-day forecast is exceptional for January.  We may even reach 60F on Tuesday.  Even the overnight lows are only forecast for the lower 40's.

OK, it's only 7:40 a.m. here and already it's almost 40 degrees outside.  And raining.  Yesterday when I went outside, there was a sheet of ice right in front of my screen door.  They say though that by Wednesday, it's supposed to be back in the 30's and snowing. :P

It's going to warm up here in south central OHIO! Yahooooo!!
Forecasting 40's, 50's and close to 60 degrees on a couple of days this coming week.
A break from the brutal temps (anything above freezing that holds all day)!
The llamas sense the weather patterns before they happen. Quite often, in fact. Yesterday, they were running, playing and frolicking in the pasture.
Yes, we'll get the rain/freezing rain first but then..........

We're the same here - totally unbelievable!  Yesterday we woke up to 4 degrees and got up to 40.  Today, we're waking up to 14 degrees - a 10 degree heatwave ;).  By the middle of next week, they are predicting 60 degrees - in WV in January!  What the heck happened to winter?  At this rate, I'll never get my "winter" projects done (the ones that i save for the ugly, snowed-in days). We loaded up on all kinds of really cool snow stuff last year when it went on clearance thinking that surly THIS year we'll have a "normal" winter.  But, the kids have been able to use it a grand total of 3 days.  We haven't had a really "good" winter since 2002/2003.  Oh, well, we were also wearing shorts in October - which has never happened.

I need to see the sun!  It can be cold as blue blazes, but it would be nice to see the sun.  I, too, hope that everyone is ok in California.  I didnt' realize that they were having such a harsh time.
