Not quite sure what that even means.Second snow (that I've seen here) this year but first accumulation...and wow, the flakes have been all Gabriel Iglesias. Supposed to get a total of 4-5 inches by tomorrow morning.
I don't think we've had a hard freeze here yet, a few frosts though, pre-dawn of course. I expect any accumulation today will be gone quickly (it's going back into the 40s in the following days), and likely replaced by more in the not-too-distant-future...like next Sunday, A.D.
Where I lived in NY State growing up was colder then CT but not drastically ... it was the tropics compared to "Squirrel Country"!Been hovering just a bit below zero and been getting a small sprinkle of snow here and there but then it ends up melting throughout the day.
Back when I was a kid we typically had permanent snow on the ground by now.
I live in what we jokingly refer to as Canadian Florida: the southern most part of Canada. We poke fun at those in the "north" even though we are all north.Where I lived in NY State growing up was colder then CT but not drastically ... it was the tropics compared to "Squirrel Country"!
Even so it would usually at least be face-numbingly cold by early December and I can recall multiple BIG storms with snow that actually stuck around. Now we sometimes get the storm that early but it melts fast.
it's been dry and windy here too. It will pour from about midnight to noon, I think. I have put off opening up the earth until Tuesday morning.So far...(knock on wood) the pineapple express is running north of us. We got less than 1/2" of rain today, Forks, 110 miles to the north got almost 2".
I got (a) a text message, (b) a robocall, and (c) an email from the Grays Harbor County Emergency Management folks...all saying basically the same thing:it's been dry and windy here too. It will pour from about midnight to noon, I think. I have put off opening up the earth until Tuesday morning.
