We're not exempt from the Winter blast

This is the outlook for today.



They are saying up to 1/2 inch of ice possible through tonight. Helloooo, we're in central Louisiana just west of the point in the ankle of the boot. People here aren't experienced with winter conditions. Ice here can be the Lake Shore Drive event on the bayou.


And speaking of Lake Shore Drive, did you see these pics on the Weather channel?

Can you imagine coming back to a car slam full of snow?

But look, how fun. Catch the wave..............

It's all very, very scary, Marley. We had a bad December but nothing compared with the stuff that keeps heading your way. Take care.

Thanks, I'm just going to curl up in my recliner and hope the lights don't go out. Then there's always the generator and thank heavens for butune stoves and water heaters!

Eeeek. What do the nice colours on the map mean?

And, is that the view from your house with the wave?

Hot pink means snow and ice ;) and if we get a wave like that you guys will be at the edge of the next Ice Age.

The most snow I've ever seen here in the last twenty years was oh, seven inches. I've seen 3 inches of ice though. A whole lot less fun.

I guess I didn't mention Lake Shore Drive is in Chicago a little ways north of here...like 1000 miles. I just thought they were awesome Winter horror pictures.

I was supposed to begin a cross-country trek today (from MT to MA) but postponed it because of the 12 inches of snow we got today and the several more inches we're supposed to get tomorrow.

Despite all the snow we've gotten here, my family in MA has received about 6 feet of snow this winter.

I guess that's why it's called winter...

Sure will be happy when it's over.
