It left 11 inches on the ground and 1/4" of ice underneath - here in my part of Missouri.

They are saying from you guys across southern IL at around Benton, 10"-14" of snow atop that ice. What a mess down there. Stay safe and warm!

Hopefully we'll see nothing but the sleet that we got today.
You all can keep the dadburn snow, it's cold enough here without it.

Agree with you there Ron, it's freezing in Scotland at the moment, and the home fires are burning.

Thanks for the well wishes Harry. My wife and I love the snow. The drive home was good, but the accidents on 79 and 376 were bad.

I can't believe how bad the Midwest has got slammed. Stay warm everyone!

It's about 35 degrees cooler here that it was yesterday,
but we're not expecting a hard freeze. My daughter
in Dallas may or may not lose a Crepe Myrtle; it
looks like a glass Weeping Willow. Laughing




(Still 72 right here next to the window fan) cheers

With the wind its giving us a wind chill of - 10 below. And Monday it got up to 80 !! Supposed to get some more sleet/snow tomorrow and not get much above 26! Not a normal start to our usual winter for sure and it's only the 6th of December !! DAMN!!Twisted Evil

Normally I don't talk much at all about California weather.

But currently here in Sacramento we have a slight chance of snow tonight. It's been a bit cold.

We ended up with 11.5 inches here in town with 1/4" of ice underneath. Never lost power or anything too serious.

Worst part is - when the city & county plow the roads they end up worse than untouched, exposing the ice. Mad

Yep. It's winter in the Burgh- not supposed to be for a couple more weeks, but this is no real surprise. It's 28 outside right now and we've 2 1/2 to 3 inches of what looks like snow but is hard packed sleet.
I just came in from my "sunporch" where the temp is 33 - just finished a cob-load of Squadron Leader. It WILL be a while before second smoke of the day happens.

Yep, 28 here with a slight breeze (as usual) and I'm contemplating whether or not to
sit on my porch to have a bowl or not. Odds are I'll go, if not for just a little while.

Thank you for the idea Aristokles! I stole your idea and had the same exact thing - Sq Ldr in a cob as I shoveled the driveway. What a great way to start the day!!

East of the 'Burgh in Monroeville we only got hit with a couple inches and freezing rain, which is worse on the roads here with everything being uphill. I can't take the cold with or without snow, so I just look at it from inside the house and wait. It's the 'burgh and could be 70 degrees in a couple weeks. sunny

I'm feeling better today and back in the shop. Building a table for my new table saw. The old one (30 years) kicked the plate, busted up my face and back falling into my workbench. It didn't survive being thrown against the block wall. Evil or Very Mad
