For the uninformed, 15-20mph wind now is considered "intense"

The wind in the area reached 15-20 mph, according to CNN Meteorologist Gene Norman. It was so intense that it broke state Sen. Jamaal Bailey's umbrella as he was addressing reporters at the scene.

You have to look at the news source. 

CNN not to reliable on reporting the truth.

That was poor engineering.

Now if we could put this to use chasing snowstorms, it’d be a lot more fun

Don’t worry, we average 15 inches of snow a season here in korea and haven’t seen anything over a trace this season  or last season. 
We had an intense snow squall on New Year’s Eve which was fun while it lasted.

I just wanna pop in from Oklahoma and say that we've been doing poorly in the snow department as well. Oklahoma City averages 8" of snow a winter and has only gotten 9.5" total since March 2015. That's more like what you'd expect from a place like Dallas.

And the past two winters had below-normal temperatures, so we've just had a lot of dry, windy cold, which is annoying

BTW,  I think this is a total myth and there's nothing to it, but thought some of you would appreciate that I saw a woolly worm today. It was black on both ends but sold brown in the middle half. Cold in Nov and cold Feb following warm Dec/Jan?

Yep. Hard to track worms and storms, but I don't think I have ever seen that storm myth pan out.

I've been telling you folks to enjoy the heck out of what you have today cuz the rest of winter could easily be cool and wet.  I mowed today, cleaned some trash in the woods, swept out the barn, went on a trail ride, and on and on.  What an outstanding day!!

Foothills up in Stuart VA.  Got the lawn ready to lime like crazy, kill the moss by March and overseed into April.  Mother Nature is doing a fine job right now.  None of us will suffer from the winter blues and we may still bank a couple of storms in Fab Feb.
