Mother Nature has a nasty sense of humor

We've had several days during the last week or two where our temps have gotten over freezing and the snow has been melting. Today, I was out all day with my neighbor and when we got home we both noticed at the same time that there are big patches where we can actually see grass.

Now I just looked at the weather, they had been predicting a little light snow for tomorrow night....well....there's a Winter Storm Watch in effect and the snow accumulation has been changed to 4-6" by Monday morning and "additional heavy snow accumulation" during the day on Monday. Previous experience interpreting these forecasts says we're looking at a foot or so.

March is definitely coming in like a lion....

I've also heard rumblings that we may be in for some snow here in Georgia, too! Very odd and out of character for this area of the country.

Re: Mother Nature has a nasty sense of humor

Snow is predicted here, too, about 150 miles east of Atlanta, give or take. Fingers crossed that we get a little accumulation so Arianwen can try out her furry "snowshoes"

Lisa, I hope you don't have to shovel!

Nope. When I decided to buy a house instead of a condo/townhouse, I decided that snow removal and lawn mowing were two things I was not going to do and budgeted accordingly...I had to be able to afford the house and hiring someone to do those two jobs or I couldn't buy the house. So I have someone who plows the driveway and shovels the walk/steps.

Re: Mother Nature has a nasty sense of humor

Nice! When my brother was living in Gurney(sp?), Illinois, he hired someone to plow his driveway, and use a blower on his sidewalk, too. It was well worth the money.

Re: Mother Nature has a nasty sense of humor

Lisa, you are getting what we just got! It's been the same thing here, warm, then cold again, then warm again, and thursday we had snow all day! Tonight we are in the negatives for temp! Now next week we are supposed to be going up in temps again, even a possible day or 2 of 50 degrees! Hang in there, it'll get better soon! It's been one odd ball winter, that's for sure!

Re: Mother Nature has a nasty sense of humor

Apparently we have two storms coming at us...the first one is what they had been talking about to begin with, a little light snow. Then there's a nor'easter coming up the coast...that one's going to be the dumper. Then it gets cold again for a few days, but "warms" up the end of the week...warm is mid 30's to 40.

Re: Mother Nature has a nasty sense of humor

Looks like the 'jackpot' area will be south of Boston and into Rhode Island with a forecast of 10-15". We're in the 8-12" band.

Re: Mother Nature has a nasty sense of humor

There was snow on the ground here in G'ville! About 2" !!!

Arianwen didn't want to go out in it, though. She stepped out on the porch, looked down, shook her little hand like she had stepped in dog poo, and headed back in. I asked her why, and she said,"Cold!",

I got lots of pics, but can't post them right now 'cause of technical difficulties. Look for 'em in a couple of days.

Re: Mother Nature has a nasty sense of humor

I don't think we're supposed to get any precip in the next few days here in north central ND but the temps haven't been shaping up at all. The high yesterday was in the single digitsand very windy! A few days ago the weatherman said it would be in the low to mid 30s this week but now they've dropped it to the mid to upper 20s for a high. Honestly, I don't know how they could really know anything until about 24 hours before anyway.
