    It's snowing in Tallahassee today. We don't see that too often. The rare times it snows here, it usually turns to water by the time it hits the ground. This morning I could see the flakes falling and there was a light accumulation on the ground. Not enough to make snowballs yet but maybe by lunchtime there will be. The last time we had a significant amount of snow was in 1989. I remember tracing the date in the snow on the windshield of my car so my mom could take a picture.

    School is out for the day and the buses won't be running until 10AM. A friend called me last night and was hoping we might get the day off from work. I doubted it and, sure enough, we didn't get the day off. Too bad, because I would rather be home. I hope this snow and cold is done by my birthday. I'll be crossing my fingers for a warmer spell on January 10th!

    Pikachu, I believe it may be your storm that's hitting us with fury in New England tomorrow. I never get to use all my vacation, so it's an easy call to warn people I won't be at work during the big storms. It's a break of sorts from the record low temperatures we've had and that will resume and be even worse after the storm.

    I just went on my morning break and already the weather has cleared up! The snow flurries have stopped, the sky is clear and blue with only a few wispy white clouds, and most of the ice on the ground is gone. There are only a few frost rings around the larger trees. Looks like it's going to be a nice day after all. This storm was nowhere near as bad as the one in 1989.

    I checked the weather for my birthday and it's supposed to warm up to a high of 61 with only a 10% chance of rain.

    You must have sent all your snow up here, it hasn't stopped for hours! Of course schools, banks, and gov't offices are closing. Don't even think about going to the grocery store.

    I just went to get the mail and I got my very first seed catalog of 2018. Nice.
    It was me. I let the dogs out.

    All regular TV programming has been pre-empted by the snowstorm. All news, all the time. Very cold temperatures with extreme wind gusts and very poor visibility make this storm worse than usual. They are anticipating about 9-12 inches in my area.

    I'm sorry to hear that, we finally warned up. Now were heading into another cold snap!

    Now were back to having a garden, that's a good way to think spring, and block out winter!

    Already about 10 inches. I went to the bodega this morning and everything was open on my block. God, nothing stops NYCers! I passed a gentleman who said 'I love snow! It's about time!'

    As beautiful as it is out there.....I think that's the last time I'm going out.
