Miss P's Annual Snowfall Thread
« on: October 27, 2011, 02:51:36 PM »
... and so it begins. I really can't believe that we will get 3-6" of snow before Halloween. I don't think that's happened my entire life living anywhere between DC and NYC.

You'll love Boston in the snow <snicker>!!  I lived there for 3 years and worked there for about 8 -- nothing like it.  If you think Boston drivers are something -- wait till you see them drive in the snow!!

Of course, a stroll through the Commons is actually quite nice -- you can go skating at Frog Pond.

Wow, NOAA has upped the potential totals in a band from Reading, PA to Allentown, PA of 6-10".  Those places are a mere 60 miles northwest of me. When I went to bed last night it was only saying 4-6" up there. For perspective the most that has fallen in that area this early in the year is a bit over 2".

I think I'll just get rain though, but the weather channel is still saying 3-5"

I hear ya Mike.  You know being that I've lived in Miami all my life I really don't see a problem wiith the way they drive here.  In my opinion they know how to drive, and my aggressive style helps. lol

It did not snow where I'm located, it's just cold (42 degrees).  A beautiful day though, nice blue sky with crisp air.  This I can do.  It's that stuff that will be coming shortly that scares me. :o  The wife and I are one of the few tenants who opted to pay an extra $50 a month for covered parking.  It's paying off already because this morning  I noticed all the cars in the parking lot had windows covered with ice, but when I got to mine it was clean as a whistle.  (whew)

Uhhh, remember when I had that episode in April?  Well when they checked me into the facility I was weighing 117 lbs, I'm 5' 9".   Right now I weigh 160 lbs and have been working out since June. ;D

I look so good my wife bought me a new wedding ring.  I had lost my other one while mowing the yard about 2 years ago.

Sorry to hear about the cold snowy/rainy dreary weather you all are getting Ms. P.

But glad that it makes an even better excuse for you to stay in and rest your foot some more.

We have been around 85 and humid here in Miami - A/C day in the car today.

It's supposed to get stormy tonight -with rain all weekend due to the remnants of Hurricane Rena - now a tropical depression.

I leave for DC next Sunday for a week - and while I LOVE D.C. - I am not looking forward to going from 80-85 degrees here to 45-55 degrees there --- I am packing the heavy coat (and may even take gloves).  I get cold and shiver when it gets below 67.

Jan - what does your temperature translate into in Fahrenheit?  I suppose I could look it up --- LOL.

If there's enough snow can someone make a snowman and send me a picture......I've never made a snow man

On the local front it's currently a pleasant 76 F in Sydney, Australia.

No snow sighted...wait I take that back! According to this weeks local  paper Sydney is  in the middle of a cocaine blizzard!

NOAA just upgraded NYC in a major way for full Winter Storm Warning and possible 10" totals. Previously the warnings were just north of the city and NYC was only going to get a small amount. Delays at Newark Airport are already at 8 hours.

Philadelphia is somehow escaping the worst of this.

Power outages from East Coast snowstorm top 2.2M
By The Associated Press The Associated Press
Saturday, October 29, 2011 9:04 PM EDT

   


The unusually early snowstorm bringing heavy, wet snow to the East Coast has knocked out power to more than 2.2 million customers.

More than 665,000 people are without power in New Jersey, including Gov. Chris Christie, who declared a state of emergency Saturday. Two hospitals that lost power are operating on generators.

Utilities in Connecticut are reporting more than 520,000 without power, while utilities in Pennsylvania are saying more than 560,000 are without power.

In New York, more than 260,000 have lost power, and in Massachusetts, more than 200,000 are without electricity.

Western Maryland has more than 26,000 outages.

I remember one Halloween when we had a blizzard in the Cleveland area and my mother wouldn't let my sister and me go out trick-or-treating. I was so upset (threw a tantrum) that my mother finally gave me an early birthday present just to shut me up (bd is Nov. 4th). I think I must have been around five, so that would have been 1967 or thereabouts. It always seemed that the first snow in NE Ohio usually came within a few days of my birthday, but that's the only time I remember it happening on Halloween.

Here's a map showing final accumulation amounts -- Philly really lucked out in dodging this by a hair. Hard to believe that western MA got close to 30 inches.

Since it doesnt snow down here I feel it only fair that I be allowed to post rainfall amounts....thus I would like to report that we received 1.5 inches yesterday morning. It was such an event that they pre-empted the Today show for nonstop coverage of the rain, including live shots of puddles.(seriously)

@ Theyer - its a Frozen margarits with a Dos Equis beer turned up in it. I really doubt you can be any closer to heaven then you are while drinking one .

They really should have never used Global Warming and instead used Global Climate Change.  They are starting to use that term more, however.  Most Americans think if it rains a lot or snows a lot and earlier, that means global warming could not be real.  I still think polls show the majority of Americans don't believe its real, just like they don't believe in evolution.  Have the polls changed? 

And, most don't think the 1-2 degree worldwide temp increase makes much difference.  More heat equals more moisture in the air.  Less arctic ice deflects less sunlight back into space and less ice doesn't provide the world's natural air-conditioner as winds blow over them.  Even I can understand that.  And, yes, some places like Texas will see the opposite of severe drought, because God hates them for the gay mayor in Houston.

I agree. In Switzerland the difference between the terms is starting to get expressed.  There will be both, of course.  

But global warming does not mean it will get warmer in any one place.  There is that theory that Europe may get colder if Global Warming shifts the Gulf Stream.

Im coming to the states for Xmas and sure would love a white one in upstate NY.

Snow in New York City is always fun, but really the MOST fun if it is huge dumps of snow, so you have the surreal piles and deep ponds and just a new reality of navigation for a few days.  Green Wellies are the ticket.  And a flask of whisky. Also the snow muffles noise and generally creates a wonderland atmosphere for at least a sparkling moment.

I've just received my official long range forecast and it states that "We still believe cities like Boston, Philadelphia, and New York City will have a White Christmas this year"... good thing I'm flying to North Carolina on the 23rd. 8)

I also just read that "It's possible that 60% of the country could have snow cover by Dec 15."

November has been totally mild this year, not that I've been able to enjoy it with my fucking foot full of infected incisions oozing puss and blood.

I rarely drink alone at home -- I have a bottle of premium vodka in my freezer and it's at least 3 years old, and 80% full. However, when winter weather arrives I do enjoy a nice bar setting with a well made Makers Mark Manhattan (up). However, the trend this year is towards elaborate boozy "punch" drinks... everyone has gone ga ga for Lairds Bonded Applejack and specialty bitters.

As far as oozing, no my foot is on the mend however slowly.

Now do you care to discuss snowfall or did you just come here to hijack a thread?

Me? Hijack? Perish the thought!

I don't booze at home either, but I keep a bottle of Highland Poacher in the cupboard for when mates are over and fancy a nip.

Glad to hear you stopped oozing. Yick.

We haven't had any snow here yet this year, but it really smelled like snow earlier today. You know, that really crisp, clean smell. Almost as nice as a freshly mown lawn or spring.

The weather has been atrocious lately here with high winds and loads of rain. The local fishing boats have been blown in for two weeks now and that's not much use for them, what with the holidays coming up and all. The Eastern Europeans who work in the fishyards aren't amused either - they all like to go home for the holidays and it's going to be a struggle this year for some of them if the boats don't get back out to sea soon.

Oh yes, I love that smell and feeling. It's rather indescribable.
