Looks like some wild weather may be on the way for some folks:

Quote:

A major winter storm that on Sunday was dumping steady rain and snow on Northern California could strengthen as it makes its way east, promising a White Christmas – and travel headaches – for a wide swath of the country.
The storm will deposit snow from California’s Sierra mountains to New England through Friday morning, forecasters said. “Unfortunately, this occurs not only during the Christmas holiday, but also in the peak travel period after Christmas Day in the South, Midwest and East,” weather.com said.
Forecasters warned that roads would become treacherous Christmas Day and Christmas night from the High Plains of western Kansas and the Texas Panhandle eastward into Oklahoma, extreme north Texas, Arkansas and into the mid-Mississippi Valley.








There was also the potential for severe thunderstorms with damaging winds, hail and tornadoes in parts of the South on Christmas Day, said Greg Forbes, The Weather Channel’s severe weather expert.

Yes, we are expecting more snow in NE US as well Christmas day and afterwards. Not sure how much. LOL, got invited to go walk around mirror lake in Lake Placid on Thursday. It would be nice but I am not counting on going exactly!

Not sure if we'll get any snow (perhaps a dusting?) but that's not unusual. Can tell you with all surety it's COLD! Thermo under carport registers 19. In our particular "area" we seem to hide in what some of the military call "the Moses effect"...which is a pathway...where we don't get what others get...figure? We load NOAA, punch in our zip and then look at the radar map in motion. That's about as close as we can get! LOL

Matthew 6:11  "Give us this day our daily bread...amen." 

Phillipians 4:19  "And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus....amen"

1 Corinthians 13:4-8  "Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant  or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth.  It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things"...let me walk this out Lord.

"Moses Effect"??? Yeah, micro-zones can be downright bizzare. The mountain regions are full of them. We can be up to twenty degrees colder than my folks place - 20 miles away and not much altitude difference. :shrug:

We are darkening as I type. IT is coming in. Not supposed to be too much snow....weren't talking about WIND this time.... Supposed to be fast moving system so we might be clear by tomorrow afternoon. If DH and I have to delay Christmas at my folks for a few hours for the roads to clear, that's doable.

MtRider ---enjoy the snow, all of you who don't usually have a white Christmas. :santa:

High wind warnings here all day tomorrow and I'm supposed to have brunch with friends. I'm planning on her taking these chicks and she needs me to check a goat that miscarried and has a retained placenta. So I really need to go. About 60 miles each way. One of them will pick us up so they will have two round trips to make.

Decided not to chance the roads today, even though the company would have been nice, I'd rather be to home when the weather is bad. Trying to get stuff caught up in case the power goes down. Got behind with housework since I've been working outside a lot lately. Got a HUGE pile of brush and mesquite to burn if the weather ever cooperates!

It often seems as if my little town is a microzone but now forecasts here predict up to 18 inches. A respectable snow storm to be sure. LOL. I was invited to go walking up at Lake Placid for the worst estimated period. ha ha ah......... The roads will be far too full of snow .....maybe not even open until the Interstate get's cleared. It is always nice to know I can walk to gas station or store. The local guys and their trucks and blades usually get the roads here and store parking lots and gas station opened up for vehicles pretty fast. But the main DOT plows will be busy on the Interstate for two days before they can get to the main routes around me. It is also cold enough it should stay awhile. I do not have the headaches others do, but its nice to have a respectable storm when one can just sit back and enjoy it !

We had a couple of inches of snow last night, but the storm is expected to hit us tomorrow evening, I think.

We've had a pretty drastic temp drop here! I put out extra feed and swapped the brooder lamp for a higher wattage. Made sure the tarp was tied down on the hoop house. I really need to put two more sides on that thing. I have the north wind blocked but doesn't help a lot when it is from the NW or NE.

They are calling for my area to get 6-10 inches of snow today. Depending on where the warm air is, it will change into frain/sleet/snow mix. I hope that part holds off until DH is safely home from work today. When we went to bed last night, they were forcasting for this to hit us at 4 am. So, far, nothing, but the wind is picking up.


11am--little ice balls came and coated the roads. The snow started. It's big flakes. Almost looks like large cottonballs coming down. It's coming down FAST.

Hubby said that we're due to get a foot of snow. The snow and sleet is expected to hit Philadelphia later this afternoon and will reach us by this evening.

We are having snow here now (Noon Wednesday) in Central PA near the Capitol, and it's coming down pretty steady. I have to get to work tomorrow (I OD'd the checkbook :banghead: ) and I need to get my kid back to his pick up location to get back to school :(. Glad there is lots of food here so I don't have to worry about any of that should my house be overrun with teenagers (somehow they manage to get through just about anything!).
Stay safe and warm everyone
Be Blessed
