Yeah...about 8 here this morning. Nothing like walking on ankle-breaking, rutted and frozen slush. But of course, with my cat-like reflexes, I navigate those hate-holes like a champ.

So, now with 18" still on the ground we've got two days of warming and rain inbound. Next up, flooding. Kinda early in the winter to be this shitty already. Get ready 1RS, we're fixing to send a shitpile of ice water your way.

All of our snow has mostly melted. With this rain coming there will be flooding issues. I'm on high ground.

Lots of rain freight training up from the gulf over FL and up the eastern US. Heavy stuff still to the W-SW but we are forecast anywhere from 3-5 inches over the next 24. Looks like the center of the low is out over LA pulling all that moisture and warm air north.

Snow-covered rooves ("roofs" for you literary red-necks!) always look amazing to me.

I'd be out there every day frolicking like a fawn!

It's pronounced "rhuf", just so's you know.

Not me, but I do have a non-flamethrower propane powered wand that I forget about every winter.
