Winter weather advisory issued here. I don't know when it's suppose to take effect. I do know it's suppose to start snowing tomorrow morning. One prediction I saw had 2-4 inches here and another had 1-3 inches. I won't know how much it will snow until it happens.

I went out for cat food and litter earlier.

Working at home today because it's supposed to get nasty here. 3 - 6 inches of stuff predicted and rain to begin. Anyone betting on ice under the snow? Ack! Buttoning down.

We got about 3" of mostly powder snow that blew away. Good thing, I didn't have to shovel any of it. But it was -1 this morning with windchill of -20. And Thursday is supposed to be even colder. 5 days in a row with subzero temps in the morning, then a days reprieve (if you call 2-5 above a reprieve) then back in the freezer again.

I am sooooo ready for spring! Come on Spring!!!

OMG! It's COOOOOOLLLLLLLDDDDD! Wind chills at or below 0. We're right on the coast where the wind is strongest. Brrr! All horses are still inside, and dog/cats are in the house. It isn't fit for man or beast outside. (Of course our "Christian" neighbors have their horse out with no blanket and inadequate shelter. Do unto others, people!)

I'd be tempted to 'do unto them' leaving a horse outside in that weather in that condition. Let them stand outside naked with no blanket or barn to block the wind......

Today: snowing lightly, breezy, 1 with windchill of -16 this morning. Supposed to be really brutal tomorrow and Friday....they're talking -30 again. And the subzero temps keeping up until past the end of the month. LordHelpMe...I don't know if I can endure an entire month of subzero temps.

Wind chill advisory is in effect here and more snow is coming tonight. Also, sub zero temps on top of that. I'm not interested to find out what the windchill is. All this snow, power outages, wind chill advisories, travel advisories etc is making me want to get a weather radio.

Wind chill advisory expired early afternoon and now there is a winter weather advisory out. I have no idea how much snow we will get tonight.

My thoughts are with you guys....every time I look at weather for the Midwest where I'm from I do a double-take. It's sooooo easy to forget about it and let your blood thin when you move away. Feel so bad for any outside kittehs there...I worry about the ones here this week when it got down to 12 on Thursday!

23 this morning with windchill of 9 when I got up today. Supposed to snow some more....wind is blowing pretty hard. What powder snow we got yesterday (about 1 1/2") was drifting and flying all over the place. As I type this it's 12 and feels like -9 so temps dropping already, as predicted. Not surprising considering 41 mph wind gusts.  Shocked 
Will finally warm up to above zero windchills tomorrow morning late....so it can snow on us some more. Then it's back in the deep freeze for us again.

Only good thing about this weather...the snow sculptures in Rockford will not melt anytime soon. Here's some pics of this years entries:

Those snow sculptures are COOL! We are "warming" to about freezing, and then we are getting cold again. Ready for spring!

Crazy snow! It's piling up fast and the temps are miserable. All horses are covered up in blankets and tucked into stalls. Bingo needs to go for a potty break, and I'm going to bundle him up too. BRRR!

I saw how the south and out east got an inch and practically rolled up the sidewalks. We laugh at an inch of snow here. We don't even plow an inch of snow. It mostly blew away anyway. It was too cold to snow anything other than powder.

Brutal would describe the past few days here: -31 at noon (actual -18) on Monday....-35 at 8am Tuesday (actual -22). No school either day and mostly everybody else was closed too, including some of the roads because of drifting (stupid wind). This morning: -3 with windchill of -19....we had school so I ended up shoveling the crosswalk again the entire shift. Worked up a sweat doing that, my hair was dripping wet. Talk about catching a chill going home!

We might get above zero for windchill temp sometime today....then again maybe not. Snow in the forecast tonight, tomorrow, and Friday so more shoveling in store for me at work. Oh Goody.....**sarcastic tone**

I have no idea how yesterday's debacle here in Atlanta happened....I've been here 28 years, through the ice storm a few years ago and the Blizzard of '93..never seen anything like this. I was lucky-only took me two hours to get home. My cats are mostly annoyed by it, although a couple seem to like it. Now I know what the walking footprints of a three-legged cat look like!
