We got some rain about 0.05 in 24hrs. Wind top out at 36 mph on my wind gage. My hearing aids made it sound like a 747 on take off, when I am by a window. It cleared out most of the tumbleweed.
Did you see this shit?In all my years I've never heard of wind near 200 mph in the mountains unless it was a tornado.Hell, I bet it blew snow well into Nevada.
Now is see why we got over 35mph winds. Have not seen a tornado in the mountains. Have been in one very small tornado once in my state. We don't get many tornado in our state and if we do there small and don't last long as the hill stop them from getting big. . We do get a lot of dust devils in my area.
The system that's over you right now is the one that's supposed to bring us snow tonight.Is it all that cold and are you getting snow from it?
It is 37º and we are getting some snowflakes now and then. So it must be very cold way up high. it's calling for 44º today. Tonight it's calling for as low as 31º with less then 50% chance of snow between 11:PM and 3:AM. It look like after Monday A.M. it will only be rain for the next 6 days. Starting Tuesday night we will be in the mid upper 30's at night for the week. https://www.wunderground.com/q/zmw:97818.1.99999
Went to bed and it started raining, rained all night, awoke at 3:00 something and still raining, about an inch and a quarter, made coffee, turned on computer, checked satellite and radar, went to bathroom to take a pee, came back 3 minutes later to an inch plus of snow.Damn, that was like some type of time warp it happened so fast. One minute it was 37 degrees and raining, a couple of minutes later it's 31 and snowing like crazy.I think Spring is on me tonight will be 33º the night temps start going up very slow. Day time will 45 to 50+º but in the sun it will feel like 70+. I am moving flowers out side. It calling for rain off and on over the next 10 days. So I will hold off on the yard sprinkler system for 2 or 3 week. When I get the water on I then can get the fertilizing done for Spring. Then back to cutting grass every 3 or 4 days. Looks like it will continue all day. I told Toy we're taking the Razer out, she said you seem awfully confident I'm going, I said as the sun rising in the East I am, now get dressed, we're going.
Just got back with the Razer, feet are frozen, snow abut 8" packed and still snowing off and on, will all night, so we'll go out again tomorrow. Maybe...
Stick some foot warmers in ST boots.
I wore cowboy boots because I didn't plan on getting out, but I never planned on that much snow getting in. As soon as I hit the brakes, all that snow slid straight down to my feet, then every snow ladened limb I clipped, unloaded it's bounty as well.I really like to get the full windshield, but I just know the first time it rolls, there goes a grand.
Don't say that in front of ST.
