    What is this white stuff?



    Our rainy Sunday took a rare twist today for central Georgia. We are getting a little bit of accumulation, but it is about 40 degrees and has been raining all day, so there is no way to enjoy playing in the slushy mess.
    I just hope it melts away before the overnight temperature drops below freezing. I hate it when the power goes out.

    I'm not sure what it is, but we had a bunch of it yesterday in northwest AR. When I awakened this morning, the temperature at the airport, about a mile or two from my place, was 16 F with a windchill of 1. I think it must be some sort of heinous plot hatched by TomBomb and sent our way. I think they have plenty enough of this stuff up there to spare some without missing any of it

    I read that New York City is expecting 12"-14" by Monday morning. That is going to be a mess.

    It is cold here today, had a high of 18 with a brisk wind bring the windchill down to just 5 degrees in the mid-afternoon. Below zero wind chills tonight. But no snow and with a warmup headed our way. Temps predicted to climb to 40 by Wed and into the mid-40s on Thur/Fri/Sat. Hope that isn't fools gold.

    I see that nasty little places like Charlottesville, VA are getting some snow and cold weather too.

    I went to a rodeo last night and just about froze to death. The wind was blowing 30mph and it was 45 degrees. Down here that's cold. I haven't seen that white stuff in a while though.

    Me neither. I've seen black mold and red mold since arriving in Little Rock, so I assume it is some kind of quick-forming white mold. It is apparently distributed by the wind.

    My day started in Boone this morning and it was snowing like crazy and we had a little trouble getting away.

    In Charlotte it sounds like we could get 4"-8". What a nasty, nasty weekend we had.

    Fortunately they're calling for low 70's next Saturday.

    It's heading to Raleigh too. We're supposed to get 2" to 4" of whatever that white junk is. Storm screwed up my entire riding weekend.

    Nothing depresses me like a winter with little snow. Bring it on!

    My strategy worked! The new tractor came with a 49" 2-stage snow blower, so of course I only got a dusting. Low tonight is predicted to be 4F. At that point, the plus or minus sign really doesn't matter.

    As long as it's white it's fine. If it has turned yellow, don't eat it.

    48 in Murray right now. Got out for a nice ride with Nycycle this afternoon. Cool breeze came up about 4:00 pm. Weather man predicts 58 tomorrow. Happy days!

    They're expecting 10-12" by tomorrow here in NYC. I get to go to work in any case, even if I have to x-country ski there. My subway line is open to the elements but below ground level in an open cut. It is usually the first service to get canceled.

    By this time of year, if it is white and falling from the, I just assume the sky is filled with well fed gulls because the alternative explanation is less pleasant.

    As I type this, it is starting to snow. We are expecting 8-12 inches.

    Rumour has it that they had to call off a global warming protest in D.C. today because of snow and cold.

    Don't know if its true but it would be pretty funny if it were.

    Very little trace left today of yesterday's snow, but that was enough for them to close the schools in our county.

    Just finished the first round of snowblowing. About 10 inches so far, with the promise of more, followed by cold and winds up to 25 mph.
    I want my global warming.

    The folks down south are stealing OUR snow! Some nerve! It even snowed in Alabama. I suppose we could lend them our snow shovels
