Well, looks like the weathermen (and women) hit the nail on the head for us here in New Jersey. They said it would start snowing around 9 and it started at 9:15 and has since turned into freezing rain! UGH! http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/36/36_1_63.gifIt is so weird to see it bouncing off of everything outside. I just hope it does not go to 1-3 inches like they said. I guess its a good thing that I kept both my daughters home from having fevers for 2 days! Although the schools are all shut down here for the day.

So how is it where you are, how about any KH'ers in the midwest where this storm hit a few days ago? Are you all ok back there? Anyone else?

I'm in Maryland, and right now it's going back and forth between rain and freezing rain. Some of the local schools were cancelled, but most were delayed today. They're saying it's supposed to start snowing over the next couple days. Always on the weekend. :tap: lol.

I hate this cold, gloomy, damp weather. make me glad we just booked out vacation to Disneyworld for next month!!!

Here in North Texas it is hovering above freezing and this morning the weatherman advised us of a "frozen fog" warning.
It is supposed to get up to 52 and then another cold front is coming.
Of course, all of you up north of here probably scoff at a high of 42 being called a cold front. I know, I lived in Ann Arbor, MI for five years.

Unseasonably warm! We are used to warm Christmases in Alabama, but, this is yucky! It's a little cooler today, with a high of 74! Forget the Christmas sweatshirts, anybody got any Christmas tank tops? :lol:

It's in the 70's here :( It's hard to get into the holday spirit when i can wear tee shirt and shorts outside. It's supposed to get colder in a few days though.

We have been on a rollercoaster warm cold warm back to cold. Mon it was 75. Tues it was 47. It was 79 here yesterday! Now it is back to the 50's. I wish we would have snow! Who knows maybe it will. They always say if you don't like the weather here wait a day!

NW Florida sounding in and it is WAY too warm for this time of year. I'm used to highs in the lower 60's not in the lower 80's! And it's muggy which makes it even more uncomfortable. I'm thinking winter tank tops myself!

First time away from the midwest in 16 years and it is nice here in Northern California.

I admit I miss the snow a little bit and I really miss the cold days, I can't even wear a cardigan, or scarf without burning my butt off in the day, even though it is about 50-60 here, to me that's just as bad for winter as 80!

Plus this California sun is surely something to fear, makes me feel like I am sitting on the stove.

south San Francisco bay area, and it's maybe 50 and clear and sunny.

LOL, My Dad is from Ann Arbor (Mom's an Ypsi gal)---and when we moved to Central TX (the Waco area) in '82 it snowed for the first time in years there. When the weatherman mentioned the snow being "...six inches and drifting..." we all ROFLed, thinking of the 6 FOOT drifts from the winter of '78-'79!



I'm in KY now--and it's just wet and muddy here--been either misting, drizzling or flat out raining on and off daily for three weeks or so now. Great weather if your a duck--in fact, I have 2 ducks and they are having a ball wallowing in all the puddles and probing the bottoms in search of munchies. Getting down in the vicinity of freezing at night, tho' not as bad as a bunch of ya'll are dealing with.

Sunny, warm and close to 80 degrees here in mideastern South Carolina. It's nice and I'm so thankful... cloud9 We're supposed to have some 2-3 inches of much needed rain tomorrow, although they tell us we're in for a rude awakening in the 40's by next week.

UPSTATE NY (Ithaca) getting POUNDED with snow. Started about 8:30 and has been falling at 1-2 inches an hour. I was supposed to have a State EMT exam tonight and it has been postponed til next week. I'm not happy about that because after a long semester of classes and work I was so looking forward to being DONE TONIGHT. I took today off to study and review but I've been napping and knitting.

Madison, Wisconsin. We got the snow and ice storms a few days ago. On Tuesday it snowed for the last time. There are tons of snow piled everywhere. Super cloudy. twenty something degrees. That's better. Last Saturday it was 11-13 degrees. They in the news said the snow won't melt any time soon.

It's 80 something here, I don't even want to know for sure how hot it really is, it's also 80 something humidity. It's hot, humid and gross. My hair is a fuzzball, I'm wearing shorts and a tshirt and am barefoot. I keep trying to open the windows for fresh air but it's too hot out, the AC is on. The woman next door is outside in a bikini washing her car and I'm thinking about doing the same. Bleh. Need some serious holiday weather soon here, the cookies aren't getting baked, the presents aren't being wrapped and knitting has come to a standstill.

I'm in NE Texas, and have the same weather as cdjack.
Right now the sun is shining. It's not warm enough to t-shirts and shorts, but I don't need a coat today. The temps have been up and down, like a roller coaster. I'm a little jealous of you all who are getting tons of snow. :teehee:

snowing and sleeting.

Figaro, I have no idea what frozen fog is. And the way the weatherman said it, it sounded like he didn't know either.
I guess it is fog that occurs when the temperature is at 32 or below?
:shrug:
I went outside this morning. Looked like regular ol' fog to me.

Canada here and it is presently 33 and has been snowing lightly off and on. No accumylation, some light sleet made everything kinda wet... kinda.

It's mostly been gray and cold and wet-ish.

I am hoping for snow, heaps of it.

We got the ice storm Mon night through yesterday when it was just a little snow. It wasn't as bad as ours from '02, but just north of here got it worse. We're thawing out today- upper 30s! I was out today and ice is falling everywhere! It's a little scary when you're driving down the interstate and a big huge sheet of ice comes flying off of the truck ahead of you- YIKES!

It's only 10 degrees here (Fahrenheit), it's snowing, and it's a bit windy too. It's... cold. :shock: I had to walk half an hour in this weather and it wasn't fun. :wall:

I'm sure snow helps to get in the Christmas spirit... but it works only when you can stay home. :teehee:

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, here in Western NY! We got lots of snow today and there's talk of a possible blizzard this weekend.

I have the same weather as kellyh57. I saw a huge sheet of ice fall off a streetlight today and land on the trunk of a car driving under it. No damage that I could see from where I was.

We are suppose to be getting some rain, freezing rain, and maybe some snow. It is 48 degrees out now. See what we get :shock:. Heck down here in Virginia they roll up the sidewalks. When we first moved down here they closed the schools for snow. I swear that it was a dusting on the ground.:roflhard::roflhard:
I do miss all the snow and all you people up North you are going to have a wonderful Christmas.:p

We're supposed to get 25-30 cm (about 10-12 inches) tonight....It's not usually like this here in December. I'm on Christmas break now, so it doesn't matter too much to me!

It seems I got my wish, big winterstorm due midnight tonight.

Currently 18F, We had some snow today, enough to lightly cover everything. The storm itself JUST started. Came early. woohoo.

we are expecting a foot of snow by the end of the storm at 7 tomorrow. I really hope it sticks through Christmas. :D

I'm in MO and it's still snowing here! If I had to guess, I'd say we have at least 5 inches of snow, maybe more. I'm glad! I love the snow!

Today the kids and I went to my mom and dad's to bake Christmas cookies and it was a perfect day for it! When we got home, I took the kids outside and they made snow angels, we made a snowman, and, of course, had a snowball fight...haha...Surprisingly the roads weren't too bad earlier today. I have no idea now, though. I had the car all cleared off before we left, and now, you'd never even know I left the house...lol...Just hope the roads are fine before hubby has to go back to work!

It is not doing anything here yet! We are expecting a Nor'easter around midnight with 3-6 inchs of snow. We had 4 inches the other day, which melted and then froze again, so it is icey out there!

stitchwitch
12-16-2007, 10:16 AM
Finally got some sort of cold front last night. It wasn't as bad rain wise as the weather people made it out to be but at least it's going to cool down to 60 tomorrow. Yesterday was 88 and equally as humid. BoyforPele and I can finally restart our winter knitting! :cheering:

12-16-2007, 10:35 AM
I don't think it can decide what it wants to do...Yesterday we had snow that fell fast and prolly had a good inch/two...by night it was melting and we had rain...by 6am we had rain and ice...now we have very very high gusty winds...they say more snow later on :shrug: ..

12-16-2007, 02:13 PM
It was in the upper 70s Friday, humid but at least it wasn't cold. I can *tolerate* cold unless we have a lot of wind and then I just can't stand it. Brr!!!

We missed this up here in the Fox Cities. We had a bit of snow on Tuesday, but not enough to do anything and we had a bit last night, too. Luckily, we've missed all the major weather that happened south of here. It's just been cloudy and cold or sunny and cold or snowy and cold.

It has finally cooled off after summery weather this week. This weekend has brought some much needed rain and cooler weather. It has been forecasted to get down to 20s or 30s tonight.

i'm in northwest ohio, 10 minutes away from the michigan border and it snowed most of yesterday and all today; there's like 6 or so inches of snow outside (i think), and i'm hoping for a snow day tomorrow from school so i can knit all day- kinda like i did today! :teehee:

Good grief...we've had nothing but snow since the last week of November! We're going to have a white Christmas for the first time in years! We have had more snow so far this season than we had all last winter...and it was a LOOOOONG winter.

Michigan kinda sucks sometimes!

Windy as heck at the moment, weather changing. Must be a Chinook Blowing in. It's doing nothing for my migrain.
Most likely will have no snow left by Christmas Day.:cry:
I wish it would snow here like it has been down east!

New Zealand:

34 degree Celsius (93.2 degree Fahrenheit).

Yup, it looks like 'christmas' to me. That is, the blinding white glare bouncing off everything from that silly, silly sun.

What do I want for christmas? Some bloody Ozone Layer would be nice ;) We seem to have a hole that needs patching!

:hot:

I have washing to hang out .. but if I go outside, I will burn, instantly. It will have to sit inside and dry lol!

SabrinaJL, that is where we moved from last year (drove into NJ on 12.22.06!) and we absolutly LOVE it here! I think that sunny & 75 is nice but not for say 350 days a year!:shock: I like the cold (am I crazy?) and the cloudiness and the RAIN. I will try and send some of the clouds and rain your way...

I don't think you're crazy. Last time my husband was up for shore duty orders, I was trying to talk him into trying for Anchorage, AK; Bremerton, WA or some place in Maine.
