There's a song that goes "It never rains in Southern California....It Pours!"

Nice pictures Pac. I didn't see the guy until someone mentioned him.

I don't even pay attention to the weather unless I'm going out somewhere. People keep talking about how cold and snowy it is and I just keep telling them "Spring is just around the corner." I guess I'm an optimist.

I can remember how much I hated winter weather when I had to go to work. My stomach would get so upset. When I had to drive, my hands and legs would be shaking so bad. But I never got stuck, and the only time I had an accident was when I applied the brakes on black ice. Didn't even know it was there. I slid into a pole and the guy behind me slid into me. Smashed both the front and back of the car.

It's a winter wonderland here. 1F. Schools were again delayed 2 hours.

That's why it's called black ice, 'cause you can't see it.

I'm inside, so it's beautiful out! The sun is low in the sky, glistening off the still-white snow from yesterday's storm, looking like thousands of diamonds scattered through the back yard. It's also melting the snowpack on the sunroom roof (which is all glass except for the connectors where the beams are on the inside), causing it to slip and form a small awning of ice. Oops, wait, that "awning" just dropped off!

Wind change, 5 mph coming from the west, it's -4F, feels like -1F.
