19 days until daylight saving time begins. 

 

I am not looking forward to DST.

Is there alot of ice remaining there? There is alot of wind forcasted with this front. They mentioned gusts of 45+ for my area, even mentioning snow flurries.

 Watching local news reports and talking to my friend, there seems to be quite a lot left on there actually.  It's a bit surprising since  I figured a good bit would have melted yesterday. It didn't get much above freezing there yesterday (in fact it might not have)  but It doesn't take a lot to melt ice even if temps are cold  since solar radiation warms the surface from underneath. But apparently it wasn't nearly enough. I got lucky as downslope flow helped warm temps here to the upper 30s and melted most of mine. I would hate to think how bad it would be if it had not with these heavy winds today. '

 

It really worries me for folks up there because of these high winds behind the front. Local companies are claiming they should have a lot of people back on today but i have my doubts based on what i've been told.  She says there are downed lines and trees everywhere and Hotels are booked up and even though there are literally thousands of people (ga power says 4000) working on it..they are going to have to pull a miracle it seems to me to get them back on.

 

One has to feel for those that don't if they aren't able to find a place to stay. Tonight is not a night to go without heat. I imagine there could be a lot of busted pipes too because with no heat even if you let the water run more there is a good chance they will freeze anyway.

Wow, i really feel for those folks up there. We are already getting strong gusts here. And the next 2 nights will be dangerous for folks with no power or any other way to heat their house.

You know, it gets really old not having a radar within 60 miles. I'm just saying. And the only radar that close is already situation about 2000 feet so the beam is ridiculously high when it gets here. Sigh...

My favorite to use is, "It's snowing at a pretty good clip".
