I was lucky today - it's my non-working day this week in lieu of Saturday so I didn't have to go very far from home.

Not looking forward to tomorrow if it keeps up

Game on.
A Winter Storm Watch is now in effect for all of CNY and NEPA from late Thursday night into Friday night. Snowfall is expected to be highly elevation dependent. For all of the latest details, please reference our briefing here: https://www.weather.gov/media/bgm/publicbrief.pdf

I'm tired of rain. I will accept anything falling from the sky except aircraft. Snow? Cool. Ice? Cool. Frogs and fish? Fukkit, at least it ain't rain.

The snow which was dumped on us last week has now largely disappeared, but it's still being a damned nuisance up in Cumbria.
Some poor souls have been snowed in since last Wednesday and the RAF has been flying in food and fuel to cut off villages.
OK, it's not the high country of Montana with its extremes of weather, but it's still pretty bad if you're stuck in it.

Jonas Ershov clears the snow outside his house in Nenthead, Cumbria. He has been snowed in since Wednesday.

Quote:
A week after the Beast from the East hit Britain, aid operations are continuing for stranded residents in Cumbrian villages where locals have been burning furniture to stay warm amid 12ft snowdrifts.
Even though snowfall has ceased in the affected areas, high winds are blowing snow from hilltops in the North Pennines and throwing it down on local villages and towns such as Nenthead and Alston.
A military operation involving the RAF and Royal Marines helped to deliver emergency parcels to 170 residents in Cumbria who requested support over the weekend and yesterday.
Cumbria county council said there were six homes still requesting support, while highway teams were out in force to keep major roads clear.

Winter is lovely, but it can suck.

If it makes it better, it's 65 degrees and beautiful in South Central today.Name:  Fingers In Ear.gif

They're saying we'll get a 6 to 12 inches tomorrow. At least the power should stay on, all the weak trees were weeded out last friday. I lost power at 8PM Friday, no heat, 51F inside, no water, no phone. Came back on 7:30PM Saturday. Went off at 2AM Sunday, on at 1AM Monday.

Were you burning your furniture like the folks in the UK?

Or did you put on a jacket?
