  • Christmas Wishes

    Hi everyone

    It’s been a busy one in the weather center the last few days.  The southwest blizzard is now winding down after bringing over a foot of snow, winds of 50 mph and 4-5 foot snow drifts!  Unfortunately we had several deaths blamed on the dangerous weather yesterday and today.

    After this system departs, we’re going to watch a new storm moving into the Rockies. 

    Part of that energy could hook up with a developing low off the southeast coast Friday which *might* bring a white Christmas to parts of the Northeast!  Interior sections certainly could see some accumulating snow, and one of the forecast models shows a pretty big storm that might even bring snowflakes to coastal sections of the Midatlantic/Northeast on Christmas Day!  We’ll be watching things closely over the next few days:

    Tomorrow’s my last day, and then I’m taking the rest of the week and next week off.  Time to recharge the batteries and spend some time with family and friends before the end of the year!   My mom and brother are coming in from Canada to spend Christmas with us.  I can’t believe Matthew is going to be 3 in a month and Theodore is almost 11 months now.  Time sure does fly…

    Wanted to share an article that was done a few months ago that I think went really well.   You can read the whole thing here:

    And I must admit some of the pictures came out pretty well! 

    Aren’t my boys handsome?

    I also ran across this picture I think I posted a few years back.  This is me – probably about 5 years old getting a present from Santa.  Funny, when I last looked at this picture I didn’t have kids.   When I look now, I see Matthew and Theodore in my face.  It brings tears to my eyes. 

    I hope you all have a wonderful holiday.  Make sure you hug those you love tightly.   Say an extra prayer to those who aren’t as fortunate as us this year.   I wish all of you good health, happiness and laughter this year ahead.

    Blessings to all of you!

    Hi everyone

    A busy day/night in the Fox Extreme Weather Center as ANOTHER winter storm hits the southwest.  This time, heavy snow and blizzard conditions are in the forecast with some areas getting close to two feet of new snow, wind gusts of 50 mph and white out conditions:

    Tonight and tomorrow morning will be the worst weather as the storm moves east.  After that, it will mainly be a rain event as it moves over the Southeast and up across the Ohio Valley.

    We also could see a threat for severe weather tonight as the cold front slices through some relatively warmer air ahead of it:

    Hope you’re all staying warm.   It’s going to be a busy night – I’ll try to check in later on…

    Prayers to all of you who are or have family/friends under the weather!  Both my little ones have been sick on and off for weeks now.

    I feel very blessed this year.  I don’t need a thing from Santa!  I’m the luckiest gal around!

    Have a great weekend everyone!

    Hi everyone!

    Diane Mosier sent these great pictures from Linden, AZ.  Some areas got over 2 feet of snow from this latest storm system:

    In other news, I see a few of our regular bloggers have some health issues of their own or people close to them.  Please know we’re all praying for you and wishing you good health this holiday season.  Thanks to all of you for sharing your lives with us here.    You are like family to all of us.
