Gonna be one of "those" years... For here anyway... we had a very wet
heavy snowfall with tree branches drooping and shrubbery flattened. .
We don't see this on the valley floor very often. Feels like 29
degrees out there. The 'stang is for sure not leaving the garage this
night.

A few nights before Thanksgiving it snowed less than 1/4" here and would you
believe the city spread "Michigan Fender Solvent" at every intersection in
town! *Now* the Mach 1 is in the stable until a decent rain or three
following the last application of this stuff next spring!

Time to put the winter project list togethert!

Re: Weather

Less than one week ago, I was working outside in shirtsleeves... at work,
the overhead doors were open and the heaters shut off....

As I write this, it is 14F (I did the conversion for you folks) with the
projected low at -3F. We usually have our first snow of the year on
Hallowe'en... nada, not even a skiff. The few kids we had for Trick Or Treat
looked strange since the costumes, chosen to wear over snowsuits, hung baggy
on windbreaker clad youngsters.

Some tell me they see wild animals with bushy coats... all the deer, coyotes
and foxes I have seen this fall have been much less than shaggy. This is
gonna be a weird winter....

Fortunately, they never use that stuff here. Even in the mountains
around me, they'll throw down some sand if necessary, but no chems....
one of the few things California liberals got right.... : 0 )

The mountains around me range up to 14,162 ft so there is plenty of
the white stuff up there. I have seen snow storms as late as July
close the roads up there.... the same week they got them finally
opened through the park. Of course, I have also seen 18 inches of the
stuff close the roads in the Mojave Dessert when nothing was moving,
and 1 inch close schools in the Florida panhandle.... and 4 feet of
the white in Maine and the roads never closed. It's all in where you
are as to how prepared they are.

In the high Sierras they do the snow measurements to help figure the
water resources for the coming year. Even taking into account the
growth of the trees, the marks the old trappers and miners made on the
trees are a good 20 feet ABOVE present snow levels.

As for the animals... I think they're just screwing with humans. They
get together and figure out how they want to make it look... then they
sit around and cut each other's hair. And the squirrels don't gather
more nuts... they carry the same one back and forth just to fake
people out. Then they hop a passing truck for the south land....

Kate, I witnessed a 1" snowfall in Memphis a couple years ago. If you do get
snow, go to the nearest busy intersection, bring popcorn and drinks. :)

LMAO John!
We were here a couple of years ago. Last year we had an ice storm, the truck
was in the shop and the Mustang in the garage. Guess you know we were
stranded at home for three days till it thawed.
It's one of the main reasons I have the Jeep now.

I'll go watch, it might be a laugh riot.
Or I'll get subpoenaed as a witness.

Re: Weather

I had the top down on the way home from work this morning, that is really
strange for this time of year around here. I live outside of Philadelphia,
it doesn't usually snow by now but it's cold at least. I hope for a warm
winter.
