How Is The Weather Where You Live Today?

Recommended Posts

Yikes! Northern areas of MI can get some absolutely insane snow!

 

This is what my poor car looked like before I dug myself out yesterday --

Took me 3 hours, but my driveway is clear now! As clear as I could get it, anyway. Blisters on my palms too! Got out of my drive just fine, but then struggled to drive the 2 blocks to a clear street. Took 10 minutes to drive 2 blocks, kept getting stuck! Road had last been plowed Saturday afternoon, and we got several more inches since then. Figured that would happen -- I watched a car get stuck a few houses down while I was shovelling. 

Luckily when I came home yesterday, my street had been plowed! So no struggle on the way back in... until I got to the ginormous burm at the end of my drive from the plow, LOL! Almost didn't make it back into my drive. 

Just came back in from shovelling that burm. And have some great icicles to share...

Glad I don't use my front door!!! They've reached & frozen to the porch!

In the back, there's a massive one reaching the actual ground!!!

Should be interesting to see what happens tomorrow when temps finally get & stay above freezing for a while... wondering if they'll be even more amazing, or if the melt will be too intense and they'll just disappear...

The outside thermometer read 39 this morning as I headed out to the mailbox down the street and I let out an involuntary "ooooeeeee nice!"  

lol ... I'm easily pleased.

Several inches of snow here (about the first time we've had significant snow in the last seven years). After spending 21/2 hours getting into work yesterday, they decided to close early, then it took a further two and half hours to get back... You don't need that much snow for it to grind to a halt over here, but then when it's so infrequent, investing in replacing our third rail train system etc. etc. probably doesn't make economic sense.

Snow will make my nieces and nephews happy!   Sorry for your 5 hour drive for nothing.

Walking and train travel rather than driving, but thank you. No trains running today or tomorrow so working from home via a dodgy remote connection on the laptop. The worst thing s I've got marbles in the post but there are no deliveries! :P

It's gorgeous!  We might get a three week spring before summer comes burning in.

Too hot to think ......  

.... because if I were thinking I would have realized before now that I could move the box fan into the computer room and then it might not be too hot to think!

I remember that temperature.  I don't think I could take it now.  We're only in the 80's and I'm melting.

It is hot, very very hot. Spring is only just starting and it is already reaching 35°C (95 Fahrenheit) here. Summer is going to be a scorcher!
