I haven't figured that out myself, Sush I guess because of the arctic air that hit with the southern moisture from the gulf just caused sleet instead of snow. I would love to get a little snow every winter around Christmas. It would feel so much more like the holidays. When I was little, we used to get snow a lot. Now I don't remember what it's like

Well, the rain's finally stopped. 5 inches since the early morning hours of Saturday. The ground was already saturated, so there's flooding in low areas. The farmers LOVE that.

TG we'll be getting the cold weather you experienced. Supposed to drop, like a rock, to the low 20s or teens in the next day or so. We've been in the 50s and 60s, which will make it necessary to look for our winter coats.

One of my sisters lives in the Dallas area and she said yesterday was quite an icy mess. She had to go to the airport to pick up a friend yesterday afternoon. She said when she left, it was just beginning to mist. By the time she dropped her girlfriend off at her home, the tree limbs, etc. were coated with ice and the roads were getting nasty.

I'd rather have snow any day. Never had a problem when I lived in far northern Minnesota. When the first snowflake or bit of ice appears here people freak out..."Abandon your cars NOW!" We had snow from October to April up north and nothing stopped because of it.
