It seems that the weather patterns are returning to those of the past. More snow, sooner and more often. I recall the winter of '82 in Nebraska when, for 20 days in January and February, the HIGH never got above zero! And we got used to it. ('course I was a lot younger then, too)

ExPat: My baby sis lives in Cypress, so I know whereof you speak. The 24 hour bit sounds more like the midwest. Here you normally have to wait a few months.

Just started snowing again... the weather man and all his friends are still saying it's going to be cold and windy tonight...

We went to the store this morning and I have NEVER seen it so busy!! There were lines wrapped around the lines waiting to pay!

If I'm not around for a few days it's because we've lost power again...

Snowing, cold, windy. Really rare for Seattle.

I'm snowbound all weekend, wifey's a nurse and HAS to work (2 twelve hour shifts this weekend), so she took my 4WD truck.

She left me her BMW roadster, which is completely undrivable with as much as 1/4 inch of snow on the ground. I can't even pull it out of the garage.
