Two things.

It's only 6F outside right now (Delaware 6AM EST Saturday). My sisters stupid cat just wanted out for a constitutional. Good luck.

I was emailing an old friend of mine in Spirit Lake Idaho (I lived there for 6 years and will probably head back after the doctors fix my heart). A normal winter (Oct to May) would have 2-3 feet of snow constantly on the ground. They now have 23 feet. Granted thats up at 3000 ft above sea level, but thats still a lot. I wonder how my old road grader is coping. I lived in a development with 350 plots, 10 acres or more and the road committee had 26 miles of roads to maintain. We had 2 used road graders procured from the Idaho Dept of Transportation and 2 dump trucks with plows on the front. I drove one of the graders. Great fun taking out my neighbors mail boxes. If we keep getting snow like that every year, we can start our own glacier.

Three days ago it was about 25 degrees below 0F (about -32C), and the next day it was still 15 degrees below 0F (about -26C). Seems to be the coldest it has been for something like 20 years

Every school canceled classes that first day, I guess because it was too dangerous for kids to walk or wait outside for the bus

Just had a great snowball 'fight' with the neighbours. It's only about 4cm deep but more is forecast tomorrow.

The Gatwick runway has been closed for a couple of hours. The man with the spade must be having a long tea break.

Texas is in severe drought ! They could according to a weather station I watched, handle 5 times the rain expected of the storm ( and hence 5 storms like it) that is currently on it's way.
