Except it looks dry as a bone out.

Yep, just like London, they pretty much declare a state of emergency when they get a light dusting down there in the City of, meanwhile up north, all we have to complain about is a few bus drivers not turning up for work...  ;D

Here's the 0" we were expecting...   Storm was supposed to stay south of the Richmond area based on the forecast I saw on Friday...

Out and about in the Mazda Miata in 65 F (18 C) degree weather in Northern Indiana.
Global warming isn't all bad.

Yesterday was 55 degrees and sunny here in Wisconsin, it was beautiful!! Today was worse, colder, and very cloudy. The rest of the week will get progressively worse, getting down into below freezing temps by the end of the week. At least I got to enjoy it while it lasted!!

Took these pictures at 2:30 pm today, the temperature was about 5C or 41F.
Nice enough to work in the garage with the doors open.

Strange weather.  We've had torrential rains and tornadoes.

26 hours later at 4:30pm yesterday. It snowed. I guess I jinked myself.
By 7:00pm I had it cleaned up. Our dog Midnight enjoyed watching me snow blowing the driveway.

It's stayed above 40 most days since last posting.  It is around 70 (F) today.
