I just wanted to pop by and say Hi and Happy New Year to everyone. I haven't been around for a while but that doesn't mean I don't think of you all.
I got really excited that we were going to get snow but it turns it is going to hit another part of the country instead so I am just going to have wait with fingers crossed that we will get some (getting bored of rain, rain, rain)
Nice to see you again and nice of you to pop in and say hi.
We are having a January thaw here in Maine -- it's raining and not snowing. We should be having snow. Yet another sign of global warming. Other than that, not much new here to report from my end... other than the usual catastrophes... Sigh. At least I get to see a new therapist tomorrow.
Hoping for snow for you!

Hi Bod - I'm Kate_Te, I know I've read some of your posts before, but don't remember if you & I ever interacted. I'm in upstate NY and have the same January thaw as LLT. As you can see the board is a bit of a mess right now. I hope we get it all sorted out soon. Welcome Back
Oh I like the cold, but cold, crisp, sunny and dry - not the cold, wet and dull that is the norm here, although snow is preferable to any of the above. I was watching people today and thinking how funny it is that when it snows people don't bother with umbrellas and but if it was raining as hard as it was snowing everyone would be scurrying around trying not to get wet. Humans are funny things sometimes!
I didn't take any photos (I can't find the lead to download them from my phone and I couldn't find my camera this morning either grrrr) It was coming down in great big fat flakes at lunchtime but sadly there had been a whole load of sleet before that so none of the snow settled
There is more forecast later in the week so may have better luck then.
Wow, be careful with the ice, that's when things can get dangerous. All the snow sounds fun though. I bet everything is shut down huh? Like no work or school because of the weather? That's how it is here if there's even a chance of ice or snow.
Same here but the sleet got in the way of having a snow day today by melting it all before they could panic.I am hoping they get scared about the ice due over the next few days and shut the uni. Could certainly do with an unexpected day off *fingers crossed*
it does indeed - sleet is the one in between rain and snow, not quite one nor the other. It usually happens when the weather has warmed up a fraction so the snow flakes don't survive the whole journey through the sky and have started to melt by the time they get to the ground. As sleet is warmer than snow it very slightly increases the temperature of the snow that has settled, so melting it.
