    Default Winter Storm

    So how are most folks making out with this latest storm? Here in central Pa. we only got about 1" of snow. Overnite it turned to freezing rain and is supposed to turn to light rain later in the morning. School delayed 2 hours. State and locals got a jump on the roads salting so the roads aren't bad from what I can tell. Overall not too bad although I'm sure there will be some idiot drivers going to work in a hurry and causing accidents. How the rest of you guys making out?

    We haven't had much snow where I live. It's a little warmer as I live down near a river. But it's been -1 degree for the last few evenings. The warm up starts today. It's 16 degree's right now. Soon the rain and snow will be here.

    Simon, although it doesn't usually get that cold here I can relate somewhat. When it's in the single digits for any length of time temperatures around 20 can seem like a heat wave.

    We got lucky here. The freezing rain stopped early this morning and things got icy. Not bad and by afternoon the roads were pretty bare. There were some massive pileups on some Pa. highways. One involved about 60 vehicles. People drive stupid. Drive too fast and certainly follow too closely--always. 100 miles east of me around Philadelphia they got about 8" of snow and it looks like there's another storm on the horizon. Looks like this one should pass south of here, too. Sometimes I wish I were a ground hog or bear---just hibernate for the winter.

    We've been pretty cold for this time of year lately. Yesterday it got up to the high teens and snowed. We only got about 3 inches of snow, but today the temps started at about 10 degrees, warmed to 16 degrees then started dropping, 12 now. The winds have been what's really killing me, 20mph winds again today. They say all week the winds are going to be blowing hard. Wednesday high temp expected at 5 degrees with 15 to 20 mph winds. The weatherman said expect below normal temperatures until further notice!!!! I think normal highs this time of year should be in the low 30's. We might get into the 20's next week.

    I love Wisconsin !!!! LOL

    Not much snow here, it has been a freezing rain/drizzle for the past few hours. The drive home from work at 4:40 was slick, and there was one accident on my usually 30min. ride home.

    I wouldn't want to be the guy at work that still has summer tires on his car.

    Last Friday, we had 7-8 inches of snow. Normally, we get 1-2 inches a few times a year, not this time, temps have been in the single digits since the snowfall, so now we have packed snow/ice covering all the city streets. Finally starting to warm up, temps in the teens when I got up this morning. Barry is right, , lots of accidents, because of people driving stupid. And half of them still running summer tires. Go figure!
