It is snowing hard here with about 2-3 inches right now (around mid night central time) but it is like slushy ice and not sticky onto the ground yet because the ground is still warm. Will see how much it will be tomorrow morning.

Fog was THICK driving in today. Could barely see 20' past my hood. It's about 41F here. IDK what the high is supposed to be but I really hope this fog burns off before I have to drive home tonight.

Two of our grandkids live in the Merced/Atwater area. I get notifications from Accuweather when they're expecting "extreme" weather. I've been getting a LOT od "dense fog advisories" this year. We lived in the Modesto area for 25 years, so it's really not unusual to get fog so thick you can't see the end of your hood. I used to commute into the Bay Area every day in that shit.

Yea we've been getting a lot of advisories but this morning was probably the worst. I drive in from Hwy 59 into Merced. Definitely the worst commute in this morning fogwise. There's no way I'd commute into the Bay.

I had to drive into Pittsburg every day for almost a year. The fog, as bad as it is in the valley...can be MUCH worse in the delta.

-20 with windchill of -30.

Guess everyone wants their Tim's today. Tim Horton lineup was ridiculous today, so I was going to go inside but there was someone standing outside and said it's limit of 1 person inside. I said FTS so I went to the Tim's down the road which had less bad of a lineup.

or you could have made coffee at home and avoid Tims all together. Plus with the lockdown you are better off just staying put.

I'm at the office, keurig coffee is kinda meh, already had 2 cups so wanted to get out for my break. Basically the only opportunity to see daylight is break and lunch.

I sometimes do bring my own coffee from home though but forgot to set the coffee machine last night.

It was so warm a day or two ago, enough just to wear a shirt and no jacket/hoodie but it is getting colder now, especially at night.

We were only supposed to get 1-2in overnight but i see they upped it to 3-5 now & maybe another couple inches tomorrow. Nothing too serious. It is the coldest stretch we've had so far though, lows in the mid teens & twenties in the day for a few days now. Doesn't look like that's going to last though.

we have a storm heading our way that should get here Thursday evening. The weekend brings lake effect snowsqualls here.

The big issue will be a polar vortex arriving Saturday bringing minus double digit temps as highs. I have gotten more sensitive to cold since my surgery. :(

The storm arrived around 9:00PM. It is snowing pretty hard now and very windy.

Tomorrow a cold front moves in giving us a high temp of -8C with more blowing snow and snowsqualls.

It will be cold in the next few days. The highs will be in the 30's, not lows but highs. Bundle up.

A little cold here too. -18, -24 with windchill. Was -30 earlier. One of my friends that's always bugging me to go snowshoeing still wanted to go despite the cold and I told him I'd pass. I feel like a party pooper but I'm not a fan of freezing my toes, hands and face. No amount of dressing up helps for those when it's that cold. Suppose to get colder too. January and February is indoor activity months for me. :p

Those pretty much describe current and forecast conditions here. Actual measurable snow is...well...not "rare, " but unusual...and we're supposed to get some of the nasty stuff...tonight and possibly through the weekend. We got around 4" of snow 2 years ago...folks said itwas the most snow we had gotten in 20 uears.
