Default Just so ya know, this weather sucks!
Re:: Where is spring??????   

Sitting here on the 'puter listening to it sleet its balls off. I'm sick of cold weather and sick of crap falling from the sky. At least its sleet and not freezing rain, my trees don't need that crap.

It was sunny today and in the mid-fifties. But before you get all envious, our rain situation is leaning to the really dry side and we're about at half of the usual. We could really use a serious storm out here.

Well now that I am up it sucks even more. The rain moved in about 10-10:30 last night and everything has a nice solid coat of ice on it now. They are calling for this crap whether it be snow or freezing rain to continue through 6:00am tomorrow. Hopefully we won't have any power issues. Here is to keeping my fingers crossed.

sleet? I'm not going to feel bad for you. Last year I could have worked on my car in the garage. I have a ton of shit to do, but it hasn't been over 10 degrees for the past 4 weeks.
My inlaws are in MO and if I were there, my car would be done.

Well it ain't any better. Still raining tree limbs are dropping like flys. So far so good on the power at this point I know some are without but we are good for now. I'm glad our utility company spends thousands every year making sure that the tree limbs are away from all of the overhead lines and my service is underground. Afraid its going to be a long night. Hope everyone in the path of this thing is safe and warm tonight.

Guess this one will have to come down.

Sorry to hear that. I've had few limbs hit the house but no damage that I can tell. Buddy of mine took a limb through the side of his shop. He is at work (Fire Captain) and running his butt off and can't go home till morning. Lord I just want this to end. Makes me sick to go outside and listen to the trees snapping like toothpicks.

Said it once I'll say it again, Global Warming my achin' butt!

yea dude, i was out trying to make sure the fence didnt have any holes the dogs could get out of and maybe move the branch that went through it and this huge ass limb came down about 15 feet away. my new neighbor came out to see what the noise was and we were talkin when it fell and he ran like i had a gun and i just looked up and put my hand up to keep the ice out of my face... kindof funny but i went inside right away.. i didnt show it but it made my butt hole pucker for sure!

Well we are hammered here. We've been declared a disaster area. Trees are dropping like flys. I'll have some pics up later. I'm at work still no internet at home. Luckily we only went without power for 24 hours. Lots of folks around us though are looking at several more days without power.

It's okay over here, just south of Chicago. It was windy yesterday. (Went out blasting drifts in the FJ Cruiser!) We have about 10" of snow but it was 32 yesterday and it's blue sky in all directions.
I just hope everything warms up soon. I have SOOOOO much welding to do!!!!
