    It's letting up here, still dark enough that I have lights on in the house but the worst of the storm has passed through. My cat spent the whole time sitting in the window. The tornados were east of me so we just have a ton of rain. The damage reports are coming in from Omaha though, trees down and windows blown out in some places.

    Holy cow, it's raining SO hard right now! All I can hear is the roar of this huge thunderstorm and the plinking of the rain down the chimney flue. I'm expecting the power to go at any minute. I hope the power stays on....at least until my red beans and rice are done cooking on the stove

    I guess I should go look for a flashlight, just in case.....

    I loved seeing the photos you posted, Marleybone, misskitty, and queenb!!!

    My older dog, Powder, just looooves snow like what you've had, and I'm sorry to say that here in Boston the snow season appears to finally be over for this winter.

    Today was the warmest day we've had in more than four months, and the temps reached 71 degrees Fahrenheit, which is 20 degrees higher than the average for this time of year. This gorgeous, unusual weather inspired my boss to send out the following note:

    So here I am, home early after enjoying this beautiful day, getting rested up for what will be a wicked busy, wicked fun weekend.

    Hey Pom, you had better remind your boss that we turn the clocks ahead this weekend! Let us know how many people show up 2 hours late for work on Monday.

    After all the storms yesterday all we had today was wind.

    Ok so this isn't my weather "now". I was so tired I fell asleep.

    I spent today, gorgeous sunny warm +15C, RAKING the SNOW. In a t-shirt.

    Yes, people. That's what we do up here. So you southerners pay attention. I'm going to edumacate you. The snow doesn't melt evenly. There's snowbanks that turn icy if you leave them too long. So, if you rake the snow, and distribute it over the entire lawn, there's more surface area therefore it melts "quick as a bunny". I have a shady yard because of huge trees and my front and back lawn was the only one left with tons of snow still remaining. Since I've raked it, it should be all gone in another day or so.

    It is raining. Hard. It has been raining for days and days. I feel like I'm slowly going insane.

    I have to go to class in a few hours. I'm trying to put together the most weather-proof outfit I can find.

    Rain.

    Rain.

    More rain.

    It's supposed to keep raining for the next two weeks, too. And this comes after the rainiest March on record.

    MissKitty, I grew up in snow but we never raked it! All the men in the neighborhood got monster snowblowers and took turns showing off.

    I'm in California now but it has been miserable for weeks. Tons of rain and oppresive clouds. It's 10-15 degrees below our normal temp - we should be in the 70s.

    On top of the gloom there's doom. It's almost the 100th anniversary of the San Francisco 1906 earthquake so every day the media reminds us of how imminent it is for the next big one to hit.

    I can vouch for misskitty. My Dad rakes the snow every spring.

    Right now it's about 12 degrees above freezing and we're having a snowshower. Yesterday it was a thunderstorm. Who knows what tomorrow may bring.
