Currently snowing like crazy here in Vegas. Beautiful.

It usually snows at least once a year here, but never in the middle of the afternoon like this. And we know it's not going to be a 'problem' for us like it is in some places.

That is wild.
We are getting snow in the lower elevations of our local mountains today.

Oh Wow, I was about to post some pictures of BC and our unusual all day snowfall, but nothing tops your photos DramaQueen! Those are crazy!

Oh well, I will post some anyway.

Really? It's already a problem. It's getting dark and my daughter just got home from her job on the Strip. Normally it takes her about 12 minutes to get home. Tonight 55 minutes, and she said the streets are littered with accidents. Most people here don't know how to drive in the snow since some of them have never even seen it. The news just said it will snow all night accumulating to about 7 to 10 inches. Holey Moley. All my flowers are still blooming and I can kiss them goodbye.

Sunday the City of Portland posted "Chains Required" due to snow and ice covered streets. Meaning if you get caught driving without them, they impound your vehicle. Wednesday and I still have the truck in 4WD. Supposedly a whopper of a storm is to hit Sunday and Monday a foot or more of snow is being predicted for the Wilamette Valley where I am at. The Cascades will get several feet! No point in complaining, that is our summer water.

Crawling out from under our two-day ice/snow storm. Miserable here. I had a difficult time getting out of the driveway today. Nothing but a hard, clear sheet of ice.

Warmed all the way up to freezing today. Supposed to be warmer tomorrow, with (believe it or not) the possibility of thunderstorms. Wild, wild weather.

Currently 9 degrees in balmy Nebraska-calling for freezing rain and accumulating snow starting tomorrow afternoon.

I'm pretty sure I mentioned it before, but in case I didn't-I HATE WINTER!!
