It's about 35f (2c) here and it's doing something out right now, though not sure just what.

The streets are wet but it's half-past Brrr out there right now so whatever hits the ground will freeze if it's not already.

We're expecting 1-2" of snow over night so we'll get Yankee's on Ice tomorrow

One of the fun things about living in the south is seeing Yank's who like to make fun of our driving ability in the white stuff. "You get a dusting of snow and you close the schools! I'm used to driving in 16 foot drifts!" so we just don't bother to tell them that that 1/2 inch of snow is covering 2 inches of ICE!

It's just SO much fun to watch the Yankee's try to drive (or WALK!) in southern winter weather It reminds me of that song by Paul Simon "Slip sliding away..."

Looks like the nasty stuff is headed towards the bay between Crowdy Head and Seal Rocks. Dungog is getting slammed and Nelson Bay looks to get hit.

I keep my plane at Scone & that cell that hit Dungog is the one that hit Scone. DW is home now so I have to go up and see if all is ok.

See you later.

Brooksy, I hope that your plane is OK.

Got a small skiff of snow here. Which is Ok by me. I am not looking forward to the snow shoveling season.

It's 79 and it is 11:50 pm. I walked out of work tonight in flip flops, shorts and a tee shirt.
