6.5" and 1 to 3 more on the way before it quits. GPS units are nice, but they can't shovel snow And I suppose, the traffic/road conditions alert function would be nice too - but, the nearest participating radio station is 2 hours North of me. Oh well. Stay home, drink coffee, & surf the 'net as long as the power holds out...which it should, as it has been a long time since we've had an outage of more than the computer UPS' run time
That's the very reason I moved from Michigan to Atlanta. I am happy to say that in three years here I haven't seen a single snow flake.
I know I could relocate to somewhere I would not have to deal with it...but heck, it builds character...at least I've been told at times I'm quite a character...I think I'd miss the change of the seasons if I lived in a more temperate climate. And this can be a source of amusement...listening to the neighboring city's plows on the scanner...one driver notified his supervisor of a citizen putting snow from his driveway onto the freshly plowed street...I laughed at the plow driver's last line to the supervisor, in regard to the snow, "I put it back..."
Now you just jinksed Atlanta... nevermind it snowed near Cummings last Thursday morning. I saw cars heading southbound on 400 with light snow.
It is 79 here in South Florida today and little chance of snow. We did have our anniversary of the only recorded snow in South Florida a few days ago.
"On January 19th, 1977, snow fell in South Florida for the first time in recorded history. Residents and visitors were both surprised and thrilled at the rare phenomena, and local newspapers ran headlines which were nearly as big as it would be for major National or world events. Snow was seen across all of Southeast Florida as far south as Homestead and even on Miami Beach. Reports of snow were also received at Freeport, Grand Bahama Island on the other side of the Gulf Stream from Southeast Florida. "
We have not seen any since then but the winter is young. LOL.
We did have four hurricanes in a row and that is enough bad weather for a while.
Thats why I moved from Long Island New York to southeastern virginia. Once I turned sixty I couldn,t handle the snow any more. OH once in a while we get six to ten inches here but Its gone in two to three days. It was the 22 to 35 inches that killed me. the year I moved here, the total amount of snow in New York for the year was 162 inches. As soon as spring came around May I traveled down south an bought a house.We get the change of seasons here but there not so servere. Only summer, some summers are brutal like this past one.
I just drove from Indy to Atlanta and the snow followed me almost all the way... it's all your fault....lol
Just found out...
It's not snow.
It's "time-release rain".
I don't do snow. That's why I live in Phoenix. It snowed here yesterday for only the second time in the 40 years I've lived here. The whole city went nuts!
My best friend got a snow day yesterday from work - at Ft. Huachuca, AZ. I razzed him a bit about it. Even has a delay this morning until 9am. Gotta love that 'time release rain'...
Time release rain. That is priceless and very accurate. The water supply for many western cities is dependent upon that "time release rain" melting in the spring.
