when it rains, it pours....

Postby mnymgr1 » Sat Oct 14, 2017

for nearly 2 months, no rain at all.
was a wonderful thing for me.
we got some a week ago
then today, been raining on and off for nearly 20+ hrs.
we are up to 4''+ with another set of storms to hit around first pitch of the Cubs game
nothing like you guys in hurricane alley but another 2-3'' (even though much of the localized rain has drained to the rivers) and there will be a lot of upset people around here tomorrow morning.

I remember when growing up, we had these things called rain showers :lol:
We went outside and played in half inch puddles.

Wow, we will be getting 1"-3" of snow late tonight in the New Orleans/Baton Rouge area. Snow will accumulate on the ground. :shock: Thats a rarity here. Good thing that the Saints are playing their game in Atlanta tonight and not in NOLA. Traffic will be a nightmare tomorrow morning.

Looks like it may be a rough winter. I Have a lot of work to do today in this freezing cold, bringing all of our plants inside and covering up the Orange and Satsuma trees.

Good luck with your trees. I am going to give mine some extra water and hope that we can dodge the Santa Anna driven wildfires in SoCal the next few days. :shock:
And geaux Saints! :grinch: :lol:

Yes, some of my fruit trees are only a year old so they need some protection. The other citrus trees are very old and will be ok. Just have to pick a lot of fruit today, before the freeze.
I pray for you guys in SoCal. Its terrible and frighting, i cant imagine. Are the Santa Ana winds late this year? The rainy season is coming soon so hopefully this will be the last of the wildfires.
Stay safe

hahahaha Its always funny hearing about southerners and a bit of snow. I was in DC once when a half inch shut them all down, while I happily clomped all over in my boots :)

I bought a tarp to cover my car, so cleanup will be a cinch. expecting 3-6
:turtle: I liked them before it was cool... :evil:

:) yea, the officials told everyone to just stay home :P
We got 4.5-5 " of snow on the ground, the 3rd highest snowfall ever :shock:
I have lots of large oak branches that are breaking off of my big live oak trees. They have survived many hurricanes but cant take 4" of snow :shock:

The weight adds up. Temporary strain is one thing. Constant dead weight is another.

My kids are getting out of school early, and there's currently only a 15% chance we see anything before 8:00 pm. We bought them new snow pants and sleds for Christmas... I do hope they get to use them at least once this year.

We can go a few hundred feet, that's for sure! There's a creek way out in the back that the boys have tried and failed to clear.

If you come around- there's a new toy from Christmas that has gotten some use- the Bear River Sportsman 900 Air Rifle. That thing is surprisingly accurate straight out of the box for $50. It looks good too.

damnit, this cold spell is really not what global warmists were expecting, eh ??
nat. gas prices spiking, electricity prices spiking.
Today is warm here at 15ish but the wind chills are near 20 below.

stay safe to all of you. from what I read, they are worried about high winds knocking out power. 3-6'' of snow maybe bothers people in the Carolina's but doubtful that would impact anyone farther north too much.
