It's now around 30 degrees with a wind chill of 18. Overall, over the past 24 hours we got about 2 inches, total. I saw on the news that generally, around Pittsburgh the accumulation was 5-7 inches, but I am actually about 20 miles SE of Pittsburgh, so we didn't get that. What a difference a few miles make.

For sure. I have my own weatherman here at home He tells me that when there's a weather system boundary, it can be difficult to forecast exactly where the line between freezing rain and snow, or a few inches and many inches of snow, will be, depending on how the system is moving, how close it is to large bodies of water, etc.

West outside of Montreal, Quebec, it is 8*F but in the wind feels like -8*F. On my struggles to the barn and the hen house, some places are clear but then you hit the drifts up to the knees.... sigh, I guess winter really is here... but on a happier note I can spend more time reading the forum and trying new recipes!

Storm's over. We got about 8"-10" light and fluffy. Cares are shoveled out and waiting for the plow to clear our parking spaces.

I shoveled a path from the deck in the back to the sidewalk out front so I can take the trash & recycle out tomorrow.

Sleet. Clouds/fog slowly running up the parkway. Mt. Leconte is completely socked in. We can't even see Grapeyard Ridge right now. It's in the low 30s and miserable. But I'm alive. And I'm about to go out Christmas shopping in Gatlinburg, so it's not that bad.

I never wear socks. I can't stand anything touching the skin graft on my lower leg. Even when I have surgery, I will not let them cover that leg. So freezing weather, I go without socks. And even boots. The graft runs down to the top of my instep.

For me, right now my weather is rain! Inside my apartment and I don't have enough pans to catch it all. So I will just let it rain and put in for a new carpet or wood floor.

We got up to 20F and cloudy. It's not doing anything other than being cold.

Is there water coming from the upstairs neighbour?

I hope it stops soon and doesn't cause you too much damage.
