    Red face Anyone else having weather problems?

    Woke up and tried to go to work but there is so much ice on the driveway that I have to stay home for a couple of hours. So another cup of coffee and read Quilter's Board. It's a great day!! We are suppose to get up to 6 inches of snow tonight. Is any one else having problems?

    It's setting record warmth temperatures here in the Chicago area today. Heavy rain forecast for later today with temps dropping drastically tomorrow.

    this is one of the many reasons why I love where I live. Like last yr we didn't even get snow but I can drive an hour or so in most any direction if I want to see it; that's not going to happen. Last Friday we got a few inches and most was gone by Sunday. Today it is supposed to be around 60 degrees and up to 70 tomorrow. When we get it, which is rare and even rarer that we get more than 2 to 3 in it's gone in a matter of a day or two or three and then we have a few days of warmer weather. By Thursday it'll be back down to 40. Cold weather only stays around here long enough to make my back hurt but not long enough for you to be really sick of it most of the time. We normally have at least one really nice weekend a month even in the winter.

    That looks nasty to deal with, so it seems like a good plan to stay home for a while. I'll take our winters, but you can have our summers..... LOL

    Yesterday and today is in the 70s here. We are going to pay for it with storms. I hate storms and don't want to lose my power.

    It was 62 earlier. We just had strong rains/winds with thunder and lightning go through. It was raining so hard the satellite dish couldn't get a signal, but we didn't lose power. They're talking 40s tomorrow with temp dropping and snow overnight with temps in the teens on Thur. Thunderstorms in Jan. in this area are ridiculous! It's been so mild here, I'm scared we're going to get hit really hard later.

    We are having typical Minnesota weather. Yesterday we had snow melting off the roof and makiing a veritable swimming pool out of our patio, which necessitated shoveling water instead of snow. Today, 40 mph winds are due. You gotta be a diehard Minnesotan! Iowa is a close second! Edie - I love Iowa!

    We missed the ice here in my part of Missouri, but we had 75 degrees on Monday, 2 1/2 inches of rain on Tuesday, and 60 degrees in the morning and today is 30 but no snow here, we missed that. I guess after last year the best news is the rain. We needed it. I really hope we get some more this upcoming month.

    The ice and snow went here the last two days. Good, really good news. The bad news is, great blustery winds have now blown my large heavy charcoal grill down for the fourth time this year and not just down, but this time down the hill. It is so heavy I cannot get it back on it's feet if that tells you anything about this wind today. Then tonight or tomorrow, we have been promised more snow. How lucky can you get.

    Wow... your not far from my neck of the woods...I live in Antigo...so yup... we had the same issue. Did you see where a Elcho school bus slid in the ditch? Actually a total of three in a 30 mile radius from us did..and they actually had to close Hwy 47 from Neopit to the Langlade county line because it was sooooo horrible that every vehicle that went on that road went into the ditch including a salt truck...that one actually rolled over also. Now today..it is snowing and blowing so bad...a possible 3 to 5 inches today.

    Warm and cold. Warm then cold. That's Texas weather. Yuo never know how to dress. Shorts one day and coats the next.

    We have had the air conditioner on for 4 days. Awful high winds, bad storm last night. Bad winds again today & colder than it has been in a week. Need the heat. People were at Walmart in shorts last few days. No place like East Texas.

    I think about every school and several businesses in Iowa is closed for the day. I even got a message from my LQS that she is closed at least until noon and maybe all day. I have no intention of going out at all today. We have several inches of snow and high winds howling and blowing the snow.

    Wisconsin and Iowa, thank you for telling me what I have coming tomorrow. We are still having cold rain - sometimes heavy. I am under water between the snowbanks and will be icy when it freezes tomorrow before the snow comes. Of course, I have an out of town Dr app't. I'd try to 'shovel' the water out of the garage with a push broom, but there's no place for it to go.

    Woke up to ice last Friday and stayed home from work. 65 mph winds came in last night...temp was 61...thankfully no damage, just a tossed around basketball goal and temp is dropping to the 20's and a chance of snow tonight! Weird weather in Kentucky!
