Florida people shouldn't be allowed to post in this thread.........because this time of year they aren't having weather. Just "nice".

Nice is nice, but, it isn't "weather"

whether or not they agree

one more smart remark from you and I'll put my florida vodoo pillow in the washing machine

-8C here this morning and snowing hard. I feel bad for my sweetie, he's night RF for the hwy maint. crew, they have 16 plow trucks and two work. Two. I don't know how this outfit keeps the contract. The mechanics won't fix the trucks! Day shift drives around in empty sand trucks maxxing out the hours so night shift can't use them. Unbelievable.

Weather in the western Florida Panhandle is off the charts wonderful. But we flat pay for it in the drenching humid hell of summer.

I can see you're not driving a pickup truck.

It's only running in the mid to high 70's here with low humidity. That's as good as it gets.

In the news reports from Detroit a week or so back about the school shootings, did you see that nasty grey sky and grey snow in the outdoor shots? That sucks!

Actually Tom it does not suck, it is our way of knowing when actual good weather hits. Nice to have a diverse climate.

Yes, I quite understand. It's like hitting yourself in the head with a hammer; it feels soooo good when you stop.

On a business trip in Salt Lake City, my flight home may be cancelled due to inclement weather. Doesn't say if it's a blizzard or ice rain, not sure.

This is flat out insane for a December 15 forecast here in Minnesnowta. 61 degrees, severe thunderstorms and wind gusts as high as 60 MPH!

One good thing about NC is the mild Fall/Winter weather. On the other hand the pizza and Chinese food suck.

80 degrees houston -- caught 4 speckled trout and a redfish from my bulkhead last night. this warm la nina winter is great for our fishing

not my bold ---

How La Niña may impact winter weather in the U.S. The climate pattern known as La Niña generally brings winters that are drier and warmer than usual across the southern U.S. and cooler and wetter in the northern part of the country.

Almost 75 today and calling for 80 mph wind gusts to the south of the snowy wasteland of Minnesota. Yikes.

Des Moines is looking at setting an all time Monthly high for December.

We got hit by the first significant snow of the season. This morning it was down to 19 degrees. The ground isn't even frozen enough for proper snow plowing.

It was supposed to be warm and windy today, but there was no wind. That was lucky for me because I was able to strap on the leaf blower and clean the hell out of the yard. One less chore in the spring for me, very nice surprise!

At the spinalcracker, she blew like a mofo s of hiway 50. Highest gust ive heard was 111 at kim Colorado. We got power back after 6 hours because we are on a Ks leg being close to state border. There is some rural areas s of the ark river probably wont have power for days. it rolled thru here like a big dog. That was quite a low pressure system. From what I can tell everything I have is in tact. I have a fuel tank on stand I just traded for, havent filled it yet, the fucking thing is tipped over my cow fence and laying in the pasture. I will mess with it in the morn. I have an idea there is alot of messed up stuff round the countryside. I have to go tomorrow and check our center pivots, we are still watering HRW, becuase it wont rain.

It was great when the power went out, kind of reminded me of the old days when I was poor. No electric stuff noise. When I could get the kid (14yo) to shut up, it was surreal.

:2 thumbs up:

All and all a pretty good day really. I smoked a pile of scizzor hash. I am a big observer and fan of fucked up weather (what you gonna do nigga?), as long as it doesnt wreck my shit.

It was a big dirt storm, it kicked ass. Dark as late dusk for a few hours. You fellers out east better get ready, its the real deal. Put your grill and you lawn chairs in the garage. I wonder how many cows will get dust pneumonia?

LOL
