Oh I'll probably go out at some point today.  Our deck outside the living room needs to be cleared so we can fill up the bird feeder. We broke a record for the snowiest February.

Betty

We broke a record for the coldest February on record.  I'm ever so fortunate that I discovered my broken heat ducts when I did.  For this period last year, my heat bill for one month was $660 and it wasn't as cold.  Was quite happy to receive my bill and see it only be $180.

And now that we're expecting a warming trend, they're calling for mass flooding.  We already sit in a valley below lake level and have a difficult time getting rid of ground water.

As of now, it looks like we are going to see a repeat of the snow storm from 2 weeks ago.  Six of seven models show significant snow for Louisville on Wednesday, ranging from 4-12 inches.  The snow is just now finally melting from the sunny places.  The dogs have their pooping areas back.  Our little Puggy doesn't like his junk in the snow. 

Oh, suppose to be 60 degrees tomorrow on Tuesday.

Poor Puggy. We got 6" last night and the snow mounted well above my junk long ago.  :P

lol.

I think we have had about 50" so far and it's all still there but compacted a bit. Rain expected on Wednesday. I want it all melted by the time we return from our venture to Palm Springs to check out our possible new digs in a year or most likely two.

Can't wait to escape!

I hope everyone realizes yet another big storm is coming: Wednesday afternoon through Thursday. I've seen predictions for DC to NYC for 8 inches, and up to 12 inches in the Ohio River area (Louisville to Pittsburgh). New England is getting off easy this time with perhaps only 4-8".

edit: never mind I see this has been discussed  :-X

You have had it pretty easy this winter as far as snow goes. We had 6" yesterday, 2" more expected tonight, and 4-8" more tomorrow night. That should bring us up to around 60".  Fair? Hmmm..... lol.

Here is our igloo birdhouse. Baby it's cold outside!

NWS updated forecast -- I suppose I can live with this. However our local newspaper meteorologist is saying 4-6" and higher totals to the south.

My parents in northern Virginia actually have it worse with 6-10"

Glad to hear you are not getting buried MP. Even more glad that we will not see too much ourselves.

Thanks Wade. I love the porches too, until it comes to painting.

So... I just went out to check for mail and someone or something stole his carrot nose! No where to be found.  ???

Not getting buried but supposedly this will NOT be a light powdery snow, but a heavy wet one. We were supposed to change over from rain to snow at 1am but evidently it didn't happen until 6am, but everyone is still sticking to their 4-8" forecast. Maybe I will go out and shovel half way through the event so that it will be easier on my back.

Good idea. Yesterday I shoveled 1" of slushy snow and today my neck is killing me.

Frosty lives to see another day.  >:( :'(

That's what we got and it's horrible.  Once the temps dropped, the roads were like a skating ring.  Heading home from this work this morning was a bit terrifying.  Even with 4 wheel drive, I could barely maintain control even driving at 15mph.  We don't go into ditches, we roll down ravines....  :o

But we're hitting 60 this coming week.

I got rid of my Toyota pick up after the first blizzard,
Had front wheel dr. It was old ,stick shift, but I loved driving it. Came in handy too! But was horrible in the snow.

Ended up with a Honda CRV
with AWD or I wouldn't be going no place !
the main roads stay cleared, but the back road are an icy mess
The snow needs to stop  !

I just went out and did some shoveling. There was at least six inches already and now they're saying we will have 8-11 inches by the time it ends at 8PM.

It was too little to drag the thing out. And yes, Kenny has had a rough winter but I think he secretly enjoys it. Works for me.  :)

Is this your biggest snowfall of the winter?

Yes. But I've not seen what our official total is yet.

edit: 6.5-8.5" depending on which part of the city. I'm probably in the middle so 7.5"

We got about 14.5 inches at my house.  Highest was about 25".  First time since 1978, we've gotten two winter storms more than 8".  Going down to -10 tonight or lower.  Climate Change is a hoax.  I mean, how could there be snow, if it was real?  ;)

The dogs wanted us to clear a path this morning.  Here's Brian making a bathroom.





Here's Charlie, who wasn't happy with the cleared spot. 




And, the fish were actually out.  They thought winter was done.

Yep.  Koi and Goldfish are cold water tolerant.  They just need at least 18 inches depth here.  They have been swimming around more the last month.  Can't feed them until the water temp is 50 degrees, though.
