The storm some of you have been having is supposed to be in western PA tonight/tomorrow. They''re calling for 5-8 in of snow..... unless it's mixed with freezing rain. In which case it will be less.
So now I'm trying to decide which is worse (lol)

Aww, DQ I am so sorry about your tree. It was very beautiful. It is hard to believe the devastation that can be found in what is relatively a short period of time.

Our snow stopped about 8 pm yesterday but it is still cold and so it is sticking around. This has shut down schools, transportation systems (like my special bus service) and roads. I know a lot of people think all of Canada is the "Great White North", but I actually live in the Great WET North - people are used to rain, not snow here.

Yesterday, the high temperature was 20 degrees F. and the low was -8 degrees F. This morning it is a balmy 4 degrees warmer at -4 degrees F. I almost wish it would storm at least it would be warmer. We also have freezing fog which is not helping matters any. I agree with smoke king, I also HATE winter!!

At 1 a.m. this morning the snow finally stopped here in Vegas. The weathercaster said my area, the hardest hit, had 9 inches on the ground. I expected to wake up to a "Winter Wonderland" but instead woke to "The Nightmare Before Christmas." Then snow at 8 a.m. is almost gone but my beloved California Pepper tree is in shambles. It will have to be removed. Be careful what you wish for, you might get it but there will be a price to pay. Here are the before and after shots.

How did your post about your tree all of a sudden get below my reply? Strange!

LOL. I had to delete the original post and switch pictures to show what the tree looked like 2 months ago.

So, Uncle Bob, does this mean you have gotten your head out of the fog? LOL!

We have sunshine as well, but it is still -5 (Celsius) and there is a threat of more snow tonight.
