Super Mega Winter Blast Burst Freeze 2008!!!!! Part Deux

Well, the snow keeps on falling. We are over 6" (15cm) with that much more expected tonight. That would set a record for my lifetime (although I heard we had a few feet [1m] the year before I was born).

Here are a few shots from earlier today.

UPDATE: The precipitation picked up this evening and we could hit the one foot mark. That would be a first for me at my own residence. The black pot is about 18" in diameter.



And here are the originals...

My wife says to tell everyone it's not her fault this time.

(For those of you not in the know, there is a story behind that.)

Nonetheless, she must still hit you.

Just thought I'd tell you:

Our temperatures have just inexplicably jumped up into the upper 70s (Fahrenheit). I was wearing an autumn coat and sweating buckets. The flies have come back out, and they seem awfully confused.

Karmic balance in climatic terms?

Smoke,

Any time! Thanks for stopping by.

MM,

That's crazy talk and yet I believe you.

Looks like we are in for a white Christmas for the first time (other than traces) in my lifetime. I spoke to my big sis in Sandy and she has 2' with 6' drifts. Amazing stuff.

Meanwhile, our unbelievably warm and sunny December day suddenly turned gray and blustery, and then we were treated to some serious, wind-driven downpours through most of the day.

We're talking tropical air mass from hell...on December 22nd.

The snow on the holly is a really nice photo btw.

Get it ready for next year's Christmas cards!

snow? what snow?

We lost our power for a couple of hours. My solution: nap.
