I remember being in Texas with those types of temperatures - and a Texas cold feels much colder than the cold air from up North... IMHO... I was freezing my nuggy nuggy nuts off when I was there (that was Dallas)... If you happen to hear of anyone finding a set of nuts could you please have them returned to me?

Dallas is in a whole different climate zone than us. They actually get real winter weather ;D The problem down here is its freezing in the morning but by 1pm its tshirt weather. Makes it very hard to plan the wardrobe.

and no, you cant have your nuts back.

Habersham you live in a town that is in my top 5 places I want to visit .

Did you move there or is it your Family home ?


Theyer I grew up in the coal mining region in Northeast Pennsylvania. Near Pottsville where they make Yuengling beer. I spent most of my life in Philadelphia and moved here a few years ago

Tourists from the UK love Savannah. It is in an unique climate which is responsible for the live oaks with the dripping moss. It is the only European style city which survived the American Civil War.

Since it is in the 90s for months on end in the Summer we shiver here when it gets in the 60s. If you look at a map of the states we are in the "Georgia Bite" north of Florida. It's a maritime climate so about 0 centigrade is a low as it gets here.

My mom has one of those.  Growing up, I loved it.  She doesn't put it out anymore, so I think I will ask her if I can have it.  I bet some of the light pegs are missing, though. In the 70's and 80's, it seemed everyone had those.  Where did all these women go to make them?  I mean, I know several people with those, who are not artistic and never made anything else.  I will have to ask my mom whether she really made hers, because she has never made anything else.

My move would be akin to moving to another country in Europe. I love it here most of the time. We call it colonial of course!

My idea of a "european city" I guess is mainly one that is walkable but lot's of other factors come into play. Boston or Philly first......Savannah and Philadelphia are a grid though. But Savannah has 24 squares so in some way it's like an Italian city. Of coures Atlanta and LA are NOT like european cities. And I'm ignoring Charleston.

But Savannah has 24 squares so in some way it's like an Italian city. Of coures Atlanta and LA are NOT like european cities. And I'm ignoring Charleston.

That is why I asked. Philadelphia and Savannah have similar characteristics though somewhat obscured by Philadelphia being so much larger -- the "core" original plan is what is similar though Savannah was layer out 50 years later. Both have grid systems with planned public squares, though Philly lost one after the Civil War when City Hall was built on it. Savannah of course took the concept much further but the original Oglethorpe plan had only four squares. They were just smarter every time they enlarged the grid to adhere to the plan by adding more and more squares, which now makes the city very special.

However, I don't find either of these plans particularly "European" at all -- European cities generally lack any grids unless you go back to Roman settlements (but not Rome itself, I mean their "planned" cities in conquered provinces) which generally used strict grids.

The only US city that used a grid before Philly was New Haven, but they did not provide for public squares as parks. Also, Philly varied street widths according to planned use where no other planned city had done so at the time.

Anyway, I think these concepts though formed by Europeans became very American ideas. Of the winding street patterns and lack of formal organization I'd only consider lower Manhattan and Boston (but not Back Bay) to resemble anything in Europe. One thing American cities always lack is a grand plaza like Place des Quinconces in Bordeaux or Concorde in Paris. However you will find such things in the Americas in previous Spanish colonies. Grand plazas aren't an English thing in the first place.

So, up to 5 inches of snow are forecasted for Louisville this weekend, with some freezing rain to boot.  Some models show up to a foot here, but most think 5 inches will be tops.  Then, near zero lows and highs of 19.

OHMYGOD!

a Winter Weather Advisory just issued for San Antonio! Impending freezing drizzle!

Chaos has gripped the city!

Panic is running amuck!

Fort Worth had rain, sleet and snow all night.  Opened the front door to view the winter wonderland  for three seconds as the wind chill is 18 with temp of 28 and it has been stuck on 28 all morning.

I hope he was able to create some sort of designer snow shoe (maybe out of a tennis racket) for that bum foot.

There will be one foot print in the snow and a drag mark all the way to Federal Donuts and back .

As of 2 hours ago PHL airport had 8.6", which is more in one storm than the last two winters -- mind you yesterday NOAA didn't even put up advisories for the city, only the western suburbs. We were supposed to get a light dusting followed by rain.

Other area snowfall totals: http://mesonet.agron.iastate.edu/wx/afos/p.php?pil=PNSPHI&e=201312090038

The highest was Newark, DE with 12"

I already own vintage Helmut Lang snow boots

It is finally snowing! All weekend I kept hearing "oh it's coming" blah, blah, blah!

It is so pretty, for now, glad I won't be here for the spring thaw!

Now you have me worried. Usually, when someone escapes the Midwest in Winter it's to a 'better place'. I leave on the train tonight for Wilmington and after all these posts, I think I'll pack survival gear and liquor!

With temps going up to 41 this afternoon most of this will melt quickly. All of the streets here already seem to be clear.

Weather.com is now showing seven hours of snow tomorrow morning/afternoon. Not sure how much that means. edit: oh dear... thanks accuweather



NOAA has posted winter weather advisories from Charlottesville, VA north up the I-95 corridor and all the way to Maine.

Which train route are you taking? Through DC or Philadelphia? They usually only get cancelled if it's over 12" of snow and high winds in my experience. I didn't hear of any Amtrak cancellations with yesterdays snow, nor even local commuter lines.

I really wouldn't worry.

DC. When it comes to train travel, I'm the kiss of death. I once was on the train to Seattle and it was about 30 hours late (seriously). Even the Milwaukee-Chicago line I step on and all sorts of weird things happen.

That is why I like living in the Northeast. Amtrak actually operates their northeast corridor line with so many trains that it has an on-time record like France.

For any destination outside of this area I have to fly.

LOL, now I'm reading that models are showing a possible "significant" snow event for Dec 14-15 in the mid-Atlantic states.

URGENT! NOAA has just formally issued a Winter Weather Warning from 6AM Tuesday until 5PM for snow accumulations of a further 3 to 5 inches.

PRAISE!

edit: the GFS model says 6-8" for Philly
