Got 6~ inches of wet heavy snow. Nobody plowed the dealership lot. Thought I was gonna get stuck. But, the good ol' beater was able to take me home safely.

Another winter storm is on the way from Friday 3 am to Saturday 3 pm. Getting another 8-12 inches.....

The West Edmonton Mall (among North America's very largest) has block heater electrical hookups in its parking lots.

Your forecast reminds me of living up in the Big A in the Panhandle in the 70s and driving up to see my dad in Boulder, CO after work on a Friday and then coming back Sunday afternoon.

The return trips in the winter almost always required placing a newspaper in front of the radiator. Coming back from Boulder one time when it was really cold, I put a full-thickness Sunday Denver Post in front of the radiator. The paper was crazy-thick, but at least it got the water temperature gauge to come off the stop and keep me from freezing to death.

Will warm up to the 70s next week.

Well, when I went to bed last night we were at 5" of snow.

This morning after an over night rain, the snow was down to 2" very compact slush.

But today we were at 42°F at lunch time.

Another winter storm is on its way here. We got a winter storm watch (guarantee it will go to a winter storm warning)—Friday 2 am to Saturday 7 pm. We're supposed to get anywhere from 8-12 inches. Can get more.


Noice....

I live right by the lake in the city, so not so much snow for me. They’re telling y’all suburbanites not to dilly dally getting the snow shoveled or it will freeze rock hard on Sunday and you’ll have to wait until March for it to melt.

My mom invited some people over Saturday night. I'm trying to tell her to cancel the party. I doubt anyone will show up. She thinks we won't get hammered.

My brother is in the City at Depaul. He said they got rain when we got snow

Yeah, that photo you posted surprised me. We literally have nothing on the ground right now on the north side. I’m with my dad right now in Park Ridge and there is snow on the ground here.

Today is basically the same as yesterday; sunny, 56°F right now with a high predicted to be 59.

Just wait 'till summer comes and I'll be in 100°F plus temps. You'll see a lot of complaining from me.

This is my little bit of heaven right now and I'm gonna post about it.

Well, they are calling from anywhere between 4" to 12" in the next 24 hours.

I have my doubt about the up to 12" but the snowblower is ready to go...

I'm having a feeling of foreboding -- we are right in the bullseye of storm coming ashore tomorrow. It may be snow or sleet/freezing rain and it will be followed by record-setting low temperatures for several days.

Snow we can deal with but freezing rain... bad news. Two years ago we got a major freezing rain/ice storm that took power lines and power poles down. We were without electric power for two weeks.

We are prepping, but hoping for the best.
