Sun is out and wind is now blowing hard. We had the tick tick tick of sleet hitting our windows all last night and covering all the roads. Main roads now seem to be OK except at the intersections, but here in the neighborhood it's still pretty ragged.

The sun is out and it is a beautiful and clear day. The weather is in the high 60's the there are no clouds in the air.

I live in Southern California in the San Fernando Valley.

Well no more snow at least and the sun is shining. I think we got anywhere from 12 to 15 inches from what DH measured. Some dear friends came by with their snow blower and did one side of our driveway....bless their hearts. I just ventured out to the store and the roads weren't that bad with my 4 x 4 but I'd def. avoid some of the areas if I didn't have it.

Pretty much the same for me. It is supposed to be 73 and clear and sunny today. High of 83 on Friday I hear. I'm in the San Gabriel Valley.

Arctic. Allow me to paint a mental picture. Across the road is roughly 3,000 acres of farmland used for corn, soybeans, etc. In the middle of this field is a large stand of trees which you can easily get lost in. Trust me, I know. The southern tree line is about half a mile away and the entire grove of deciduous hardwoods extend about a mile north. Right now, the wind is whipping the snow 80-100 feet into the air and carrying the swirling waves of snow across the field at about 30 miles per hour. I swear to you, it wouldn't surprise me if a family of polar bears ambled across the field. Guess I won't be barbecuing outside anytime soon!

Ain't that the truth, Mud! If this weather pattern continues, I wonder what tornado season will be like?

Yo, Dampie-poo, don't go there. We don't like tornadoes in our part of the world.
