Got up from the living room sometime after 5:00 PM to put my coffee cup in the sink and was greeted by a beautiful sunset; the rosy glow was even deeper "in person". Unfortunately, all the weather forecasts for tomorrow seem to contradict "Red at night, sailor's delight".
I saw that rosy glow. I almost snapped a picture of it myself.
Nice pic.

Nice pic, Phinz.
Now get rid of it.
I want to concentrate on the rosy glow instead

Sure looks like a frozen wasteland.

I found a bucket with salt by one of the doors and carried it by the handfuls (no scoop) to the ramp at my door. I finally got in after almost 45 minutes.


One year we inched our way to our Park and Fly hotel, having an early next morning flight to Mexico. The roads were glare ice, and dozens of cars were in the ditches on the way. Took us several hours for a trip that usually takes 40 minutes. When we got to the hotel, we tried to walk across the street to McDonald's, and it was so icy we couldn't get there! We ended up ordering Chinese takeout delivered.

We're currently at 31F, sunny and windy here along the river.

Not so cold here, -10C (24F). We're expecting 5-10 cm (2-4 inches) of snow from late tonight through tomorrow, then another 6-13 cm on Monday and Tuesday. Not much compared with most places.

It actually warmed up overnight. Now it's 40F and raining.
I love it. I put it on FaceBook too.

Didn't go to work today, they were closing at 1 anyway.

Did the half mile trek in slush to rescue Rob's car. It felt like a mile walking in slush! It was raining and building up on the trees. We've lost some big branches in the neighborhood. Saw a lot of big trees leaning on power lines out on the main road, not a good sign!

We prepared for the worst and the worst did not happen. Plenty snow and some sleet at the end last night. No rain nor any ice. Just fine snow. Drifts of fine snow. I have a door I cannot open. I am shovel ready.
Winter wonderland and all is well.

We live in the country and have not seen one car or truck pass by since yesterday morning.
Sure hope it gets plowed before tomorrow. I have boys night out tomorrow!

Sunny with 16 MPH winds that are drying up the wet streets.

It's piling up here. Looks like we're up to about 8" or so. No signs of stopping.
