  1. Just had to cut down the rest of my yellow squash plants. Despite me watering them, they were squashed (pun intended) by the oppressive heat. Four straight days of upper 90s without a drop of rain did them in. They were putting out nicely before this week.

    This is on campus. They got around 5-6”






    Yep, that's at the University Walk complex in Ft. Sanders. I lived there one summer so I recognized it instantly. That part of the Fort is downhill and slopes toward the railroad tracks. Easy to see how it flooded. Sucks for all the students' cars that got totaled.

    Is April really a spring month here?  You could make a case for it being a winter month. Mild temps are generally in advance of a cold front and last a couple days or less, base weather is cloudy/damp/cool to cold/occasional snow showers.  So Jan through April = winter; May and June = spring; July through Sept = summer; Oct = fall; Nov and Dec = winter. That’s 6 months of winter. 

    That seems accurate. I don't have much perspective of this climate yet. I'm used to this seasonal schedule:

    Late Dec - Late Feb: winter*

    Late Feb/early Mar to mid May: spring

    Mid May - early Oct: summer

    Early Oct - Late Dec: fall*


    *Note: restrictions may apply. While rare, some side effects could include tornado outbreaks and temperatures in the 80s. If you're a snow lover, consult with your doctor first.

  4. Intermittent snow showers throughout the day here. Disregarding the periodic melting, I'd say we've recorded 2 to 2.5" of new snow since last night. For what it's worth, the forecast verified here. The sounding looked graupely so I was suspicious of any forecast calling for more than 3" here. I'm surprised we've received as much as we have now. It is white out.

    I’m good with snow keeping mud off dogs paws. Would be better if it was an epic nor’easter though. 
    Since we’re talking cars I’m a car guy and motorcycle enthusiast through and through. Willing to bore anyone for hours who’s willing to listen. 

    I like car talk, but as far as owning one I'm similar to how @BuffaloWeather feels. I don't have any desire to own a fancy car and I prefer a fuel-efficient vehicle that gets me from point a to b. I like Hondas and Toyotas because they seem to have the least amount of problems, and I prefer vehicle models that have existed for a long time. I have less trust for new models in the event they have an issue and they're very costly to fix.

    Hondas are very roomy small cars. Some complain they're noisy but I actually prefer a vehicle that lets a little more outside noise penetrate it. I like to really feel like I'm on the road when I drive.

    2017 Civic here. 0 option car I bought new. Been great except rotors rusting, and a/c compressor issues-but that one was warrantied.  And I have a truck for the real wintry days. 

    Hope the snow avoids here. Although the roads were salted the other day for the freezing rain threat. 

    I have a 2017 Civic too! I'm very cautious in the snow, and if it's snowing hard I'm smart enough not to drive at all. I'd rather not spin out on the road and look like a typical Southern idiot with the out-of-state license plate.

    "Saturday night into Sunday, cooling will continue as winds shift northwest between high over northern Plains and low pressure off New England. H85 temps will drop steadily with readings centered around -15c Sunday afternoon. Given the cold air aloft with increasing open water off both lakes, expect widespread snow showers with lake enhanced snow across higher terrain east of Lake Erie and for areas southeast of Lake Ontario. Several inches of snow could result and right now it is looking like we`ll need a late season winter weather advisory for parts of the area. Eventually, expect the lake enhanced snow to transition to diurnally driven snow showers in the afternoon as the core of the coldest air aloft and associated steeper lapse rates approaches the Lower Lakes."
