So far Northwest Ohio has been lucky, I seriously think that we have only gotten 6 to 8 inches of snow all winter, and we have had a little rain. I have been wanting a good snowfall all winter.
They are however saying that we might get some snow this weekend. We will wait and see.
plantlover, stay safe.
Wurzig were you in any of the areas that got the 8 to 9 inches of rain. Maybe more??
I am in S. California, along the coast. I am half way between Los Angeles and San Diego. I would say that we got at least 7 - 8 in my area. We are going to get more, but not for a few days....most likely this weekend. (It was suposed to come in tonight, but twirled around and stayed north of us). They want to say the drought is over, but it isn't. We have a long way to go before we are 'home free'. It doesn't rain here very often, but it pours when it does. The freeways get covered with oil, so when it does rain, we have lots of wrecks because people slide/skid all over.

Our local ski resorts got so much snow that suppliers couldn't get to restaurants, grocery stores, etc., and they ran out of food, so roads were closed off and very few skiers made it up there....

There is always great concern about landslides......especially in burn areas.....it never ends....

I hate carrying an umbrella, and usually I need both hands if I'm out in the rain anyway... so I wear a hardhat with a full brim. Works pretty good!

Gooooooooooood Morning all!
Welcome to the wind tunnel I see! We moved to N/W Arizona, around Parker area. I thought the east side was windy but dang it almost never stops out here.
We went to lost wages yesterday as it's only a 100 mile drive and we had to go to a verizon store. Funny thing, there's not one of 'em from Phoenix to Los Vegas.
We've not been there for about 7 years and it seems to me that the place has gotten really dumpy in that time or as I get older the "glitz" has just worn off and I see it through clear glasses as opposed to rose colored ones.

We spent a few days in Quartzite,Az at the largest gathering of RV'ers in the world. I'm told the town goes from about 1500 to well over 1 million during the "main event" and from the looks of the sea of rv's I can believe it!

They have several rv dealerships out there, some in tents, some in permanent buildings that they only use for 4 weeks a year. One dealer bought out a big ol' country western bar and uses it for serving FREE breakfast,lunch and dinner to anyone who comes to look at an rv.
Tent neighborhoods popped up filled with stuff along the lines of a flea market and there is one huge circus tent (called "the big tent") that is nothing but Rv clap trap, from hoses to air fresheners.
Once the 10 day rv show is done the rock and gem show moves in. I've NEVER seen such a collection of geodes and such in my life! I saw several geodes that were as tall and as big as a 10 yr old kid (one was standing next to a geode and it looked like he could get in it)...
They have 'em whole too and the cutter to break 'em in half when you buy one.
We're piddling around until the Fireworks convention starts followed by a bbq comp where a couple of the teams that are on the tv show "pitmasters" are competing, getting ready to judge some serious bbq!!!!!!!
Stay warm all! We are.....

Wow now that is impressive, when I look at the maps does it seem the weather is unusually southern? I heard that the Olympics might not have enough snow?

Sounds like a rollercoaster of weather. I guess I will be thankfull for the mellow weather.
Looks like more is coming. Sounds like we are gonna get some snow this weekend, but they aren't saying how much yet. Hope everyone has a fantastic day.

Hi Plantlover~ Yep, I'm afraid I have lived here for too long...with several breaks to live in both AK and MT and I wish I were back in either! We were here for Katrina but fortunately at the time we lived north of the interstate and only sustained wind damage. My mother-in-law lost her whole house, again, and has built back in the same spot, AGAIN. So...are you guys ready for all the Saints fans there in FL? I was going for the Vikings...

Dang, I want one... I wonder if you can still hear the kid after you close the geode back up?

From all reports, you're right about Lost Wages... people complain that it's gone tawdry in recent years. I've only driven thru there a few times, never stopped for more than gas, so I don't really have a good picture of the town outside of along the freeway.

We are ready for the Saints! Hey, they have a Boilermaker grad for a quarterback! Yay!!! Actually Katrina hit my area though not nearly as severely. I'm a survivor of Hurricane Andrew! Yikes, I would love to move away from Hurricane-land! I just wish I was wealthy enough to not have to work!!
