It is sunny, no!

It is 20-40 degrees and it is not going anywhere.

Were supposed to be getting a mideastern snow blizzard next week. YES I love acting like a 5 year old in the snow with me and my buds. haha

We're still getting the scorchers during the day, however, lately we've been getting a storm late afternoon/early evening which is great because we need the rain SOOOOO badly. My backyard has now greened up again (except for all the dirt patches!) ... this happened after just the first rainfall. It's amazing how it can be brown for a couple of months and then we get a really good shower of rain and in the next few days it's all green again.
We had a major storm last Monday evening. The whole town was affected. Tree branches everywhere and some trees totally uprooted. Many houses with damage from fallen trees and with roofing blowing away. Most of the town was without power for from 10hrs to 2 days. There is a stormwater drain running alongside my property and a shed from a neighbouring property blew up and over their fence and landed in the stormwater drain - I though my house was collapsing! There is a big metal sign from a nursery up the road in my back yard. One of the worst houses affected just happens to be where the occupants are dealing drugs .. the whole roof and top few layers of bricks blew away - some of the roofing was found a block away. Seems that since the police haven't done anything to shut down the operation Mother Nature decided to do it for them! :whistling: Seems that noone was hurt during the storm which is incredible really when you take into account all the flying debris and the fact that it just came in so fast - I didn't even get time to take clothes off the line! A guy up the road's garden shed just crumbled in.

That sounds quite unpleasant. To say it wasn't a good day seems like an understatement!

We're battening down the hatches for another nasty snowstorm. I shouldn't whine, I know places like Denver have had it much worse.

For a few weeks now, we've had bitterly cold temperatures, with Wind chills hovering between -20F and -30F...in the daytime at times! :blink:

weather.com and all the news channels are saying we're gonna have light snow tonight and tomorrow, with nasty cold temps and wind. Then tomorrow night, they're saying 5-6" plus winds gusting to 40mph! :help: Living where I do...we'll be snowed in a day or two. Heck, we're snowed in with TWO inches of snow, and a tiny bit of wind. :help:

Gotta love Illinois. :whistling:

disclaimer: I hate it here, especially the winter :)

TOTAL STORM ACCUMULATIONS OF 8 TO 13 INCHES ARE POSSIBLE BY LATE TUESDAY AFTERNOON NEAR PONTIAC...TO WATSEKA...TO RENSSELAER LINE...


:help: What happened to 5"?? :blink: This is what it says this morning. *sigh* I live about 10 miles from Watseka, so I guess that includes me.

NORTHEAST WINDS WILL INCREASE TO 20 TO 30 MPH LATE TONIGHT AND CONTINUE INTO TUESDAY...WITH GUSTS TO 40 MPH POSSIBLE.


FUN! ................ not! :whistling:

THE COMBINATION OF THE SNOW AND STRONG WINDS WILL PRODUCE CONSIDERABLE BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW...WITH BLIZZARD CONDITIONS DEVELOPING IN SOME AREAS.


uh, ya think?
