I know a lot of you guys have dealt with snow all winter, but this is the first we have had in central Virginia. The temperature reached 86 degrees last week, and now snow on the azalea and dogwood blooms!

We are getting more snow here in Ohio, near Cleveland, for Easter than we had for Christmas!!
The Indians game was snowed out yesterday, so much for taking my truck to church for Easter Mass, maybe I will just hook the dogs to it. Did Studebaker make dog sleds?

I feel your pain, I think I may be reduced to working on project 3 today because of the bad weather. :(

Unfortuantely for us here in the "northern zone", we have
lots of projects today......as it is another sun filled
day, of moderate temperatures "mid" 60's....would be a
great day to take a "Stude" out on the road....if I had
one to do so.....

I knew that "Punxsutawney Phil" lied about winter being
over for you on Feb 2nd :)

Last night we had snow in Atlanta!:( It didn't stick, but it was flying around pretty heavy there for awhile. It was 87 here one day last week.

Cold has pushed down here near Savannah too..
Got down to 35 last night, but the wind is whipping up and making it feel even colder.
Supposed to go down into the upper 20's tonight.
At least it's dry.
Built a fire in the fireplace this morning, and will keep it stoked until it warms up again...

Leonard,

I was running in the snow at 7:00 this morning and it was still coming down.

I was fiddling with a hidden antenna installation in the '63 GT yesterday and had the Mariners/Indians game (from Cleveland) tuned in as my "test" station. White out conditions on the field [:0].

(My wife wandered by and wanted to know if I had picked up a game from 1963 ;))

BTW, 75 F in Bellingham yesterday :D.

Snow !! You mean that white flakey stuff.
No snow down here in FT. Lauderdale. We get Hurricanes instead.

PS - Still waiting for my 63 GT hawk to arrive from Las Vegas.
These Transporters take forever.

I had 12" of the nasty stuff last Monday. I now have a tractor with a loader on it, so I got to play in the snow. Still cold and windy here, but the sun's shining brightly this morning.

Got down to 15 degrees here last night. We've had snow EVERY month of the year in the past. I guess that comes from living at 7300 feet here in Laramie, Wyoming.

We've had flurries here in Omaha a couple of mornings after several weeks of near record high temps in the 70s and 80s. The old saying "April will break your heart" is certainly true, weatherwise, in Nebraska.

When I lived in Nebraska and had to describe the weather to outsiders, I always said "Hey, if you don't like the weather today, just wait till tomorrow"! :D

Oh, how I miss that city!
