    As Lewiston2Capt said we're riding the WNY roller coaster. It was 40F late Saturday night, same time Sunday night it was about -2F. They just hoisted a Winter Storm Watch for tomorrow afternoon/night into Thursday. Depending on which way the storm goes, could get anywhere from 4 to 12 inches of snow, then might turn to rain or up to 1/4" of freezing rain, then back to snow. Better gas up the generator and sharpen up the old ice scraper!

    Sat night/Sun Morning; we got a dusting of snow, no major accidents but we did get called out on a Motorcyclist down about 1000am. On the way to church the roads were slick as snot, but by the time church had let out it had already melted off of most roadways.
    Its a nice balmy afternoon temps about 44 degrees, but sometime after midnight its supposed to start snowing anywhere from 4-12 inches, depending on which Forecaster you listen too. Its supposed to snow all day tomorrow and into sometime Thurs. Morning.

    I didnt pay attention to the forcast on the temps for the rest of the week but I know its supposed to be nasty weather.

    That, dear Sharkie, is winter in the south.

    Yesterday, I drove with my windows down while I did my Christmas shopping. The low was 48. The predicted high for tomorrow is 47 with the dreaded "S" word just a little north of here. Christmas Day is supposed to start out in the teens but by Monday it will be windows-down time again.

    The only time the weather's predictible down here is in the summer - when it is just plain hot morning, noon, and night.

    EFD - I just returned from my (what should be daily but isn't) run in weather that was in the low 60s.

    That is OK though, the weather thus far in the South is no where near as stupid and rediculous as it is New England.

    Snowing, blowing, drifting, temperatures in the 20's. Roads in my hometown 50 miles south of here are impassable, and people have been ordered to stay off of them. We're 12 miles outside of Cleveland, and we can get around the 'burbs okay in our 4WD Forester, but I wouldn't want to be out there in a regular car. I love it here. I wouldn't want to live anywhere that doesn't have seasons!

    Well right now its freezing rain. Then by morning its suppost to change back to snow, there predicting about 8 to 10 more hours of it,, it started this morning as rain then went to freezing rain to snow, and now back to freezing rain, we have had about 1 inch or so of freezing rain and the total on the ground according to Ohio department of transportation is 5 inches and counting, Some places there still expecting upwards of 20 inches. Saying something now about Thunder snow, never heard of it.

    We have had our share of runs today, it started out with a few car wreckes and then this evening it started with tree on wires, we got back then got toned for a tree across raod, and while going back to the station we get hit up for mutual aid for a working structure, because there engine hit the ditch. It was successfully rescued and made it to the fire. After all that was all over we were listening at the station to the radios and another department had wires fall on there ambulance. Its so bad some departments are setting up command posts at the stations, and there having crews stand by. Theres one department thats been hopping since like 7pm and its 230 and in that whole time theres probably been at least one truck out. Well Im keeping my eye in the sky, wonder what I will wake up to in a few hours to.

    El Nino triggered a strong weather system in the Aluetians that struck us last night. Woke up to 35 degrees and the wind blowing any where from 45 mph (where I live) to nearly 120 mph (not a misprint) where my daughters live (50 miles away). Had rain and wind throughout the day as the temp rose to amost 50 degrees. Side roads are a wet sheet of polished ice.

    More of the same forcasted for the 23rd but we might get some snow It's kind of hard to accuratly predict the weather when it's "birthed" a few hundred miles away.

    So in conclusion, I'm sorry that some of you are experiencing weather that should be normal for my area but still hoping you have a White Christmas....just not so frigid.

    Question Hmmm...

    Dec 23 0940

    NOW the weather here is just WEIRD! 63 degrees and RAINING cats and dogs! May not have a white Christmas after all. Oh well, won't hurt my feelings any...that just means the probability that we'll get a vehicle accident during like, ohhhh say Christmas dinner...just decreased by like half. Works for me! When you live on the left side of the Appalachians you learn to take what you get...and if you don't like just wait a few, it'll change...

    hwoods, yeah I'm surprised that EVERYTHING in WV isn't permanently black from all the coal dust, but most of the small mines near me are no longer in service. So how do you know about Ida May?? Just a little spec on a map...
