Of course the rain likes to take chunks of the hill country north of San Antonio with it. wink

All we are getting here is rain changing to light snow overnight. All in harm's way be safe ... and be prepared. smile
Uh ... does anyone have a match?

4" to 9" is hardly an "emergency"

Snowfights of the 21st century:


Snowball fights planned; no guns allowed

Reports are coming in from throughout the region of a slew of snowball fights planned during the snowpocalypse. But everyone is emphasizing the gun-free nature of the fights after an incident in December in which a D.C. police officer pulled a gun on a group having a snowball fight at 14th and U streets NW.

For those who want to join in the great snowball fights of 2010, there's one advertised on Facebook for Saturday afternoon on the Ellipse; another on the Mall; and one in Fort Dupont Park. NBC4 also has a roundup of events.

I am curious... leaving the people who do provide necessary services out of the equation... Who thinks they're so indispensable that they are going to work with this storm on the way?

Here in WA (correct or not), the news today is flat out saying there's going to be at least 30" of snow. I guess one part of it is that the storm is moving so slowly, that the back of it is still in Missouri.

If you can't touch your little finger with your thumb, you're getting too cold.

I was wondering why we hadn't heard from Dagny or seen more great pics of Gidget and then I saw that 200,000+ without power in DC metro.... Watch the video in the link.

Meanwhile, we got a little rain in San Diego. . .

Not quite Dagny's but hope they show what kind of a snowstorm we had here in southeastern PA.

Tomorrow is dig the car out and get the snow off the flat roofs day.

Hey, Andy, if you left that little guy out for more than five minutes with that short coat, he would be a popsicle!

If it gets any deeper, he's going to have to start tunneling!
