Now they've increased our snow forecast to 7 or 8 inches with a slight possibility of even more than that. I do not envy the people shopping for milk, bread and beer during the course of the next twenty-four hours.
You definitely should not envy the people who SELL milk, bread, beer, etc. at times like that.

(The bad-weather panics around here are absolutely legendary. I've seen weather panics in my store that would make anyone puke. And in almost all cases, they are NOT justified.)
We stopped by our local Aldi's for milk, after a day at the Veterans' Administration. It was a madhouse of people expecting THE APOCALYPSE!! A few inches of snow and people here go crazy...

@mari: Plows, at 2 AM?
Pretty typical around here. Plows run 24 hours if the snow is bad enough. And if it's a parking lot, better to plow it in the middle of the night when its empty than wait until daytime when people actually have to use it.
Yeah, I live in a commercial area, so plows can come pretty much any time of day or night. I suspect the plow guy gives the owner of the lot/building behind me a discount if she'll wait til off hours, and she's pretty cheap.

MLB, that "covered the car windows" storm - Blizzard of '78? My mom was trapped in the house for a few days with that one.

Meanwhile, today... brilliant sun again, and painfully cold, currently 11 with windchill down to -1. They say the humidity is 80% but tell that to my scaly dry skin. I refuse to look ahead on the forecast, I have plenty of bread and eggs and milk anyway.

27°F and partly sunny, but that'll change tomorrow morning. By tomorrow afternoon the big snowstorm will be here.

It's 18 here and supposed to get into the 20s today. Undoubtedly, I'll see some idiot in shorts.

It was '75. That was not a good year for my city (Omaha) - January was the blizzard from hell, and then later that May, the tornado that pretty much destroyed everything along one of our major streets.

Re: what's your local weather?

We had major blizzards here in Virginia in 1979 and again in 1993 and 1996. The '96 storm left behind snow that came past my knees and pretty close to my waist. We haven't had snowfall quite that bad since then.

It's 25 F here and sunny. Next week it's supposed to be in the 50s. I'm hoping to get my cracked dining room window fixed then. It cracked during the first cold spell in January.

It was 82 F here today. It took me 15 minutes to find a parking spot at the beach.

Re: what's your local weather?

crazy - we have signs of spring (couples kissing in the street, the ducks returning to my office's pond) and right now it's starting to ... errr... is there a verb to sleet? It's sleeting? Whatever, we have a mix of drizzle and tiny snowflakes. Not enough to get wet but enough to be a nuissance. With umbrella you feel like an idiot, without you get wet.

Forecast says sleet and rain till Friday. And Saturday we'll get 15°C (above freezing point!)

Cold, windy, dark and very rainy. Glad I don't need to leave today and did my groceries yesterday!

Re: what's your local weather?

20 F and cloudy. The snow will start coming down early this afternoon and if forecasts are correct we'll have a couple of inches on the ground by the end of the day with five to ten more inches coming down during the course of Thursday. We'll see.

Currently 27F. It's been snow/sleeting for the last several hours, but now is just flurries. Forecast is for it to change to freezing rain after 2pm today. Praying the power stays on. This much ice isn't fun.

Re: what's your local weather?

April weather: 1 inch snow in the morning, glaring sun at noon, dark grey sky now (early afternoon) and a storm warning for tonight.
I would really appreciate if the weather would finally make up its mind! I get a migraine whenever the weather changes, i.e. about 8 times a day atm.
