  • Friday's weather...and mega millions!

    Hi everyone!

    Just bought my mega-millions tickets.  I know, I know – I have just as good a chance being hit by lightening TWICE than win the lottery, but hey – you can’t win if you don’t PLAY!  And as much as I love my job, if you don’t see me Monday, I’ll be in Tahiti or somewhere exotic with my family sipping fancy drinks with umbrellas…

    Lots of weather to tell ya about:

    Strong to severe storms will fire across Texas and Oklahoma as well as into Ohio Valley.  Large hail and strong winds will be the main concern, however isolated tornadoes will also be possible.  

    Temperatures continue to soar above average over the Northern Plains and Front Range.  

    Another powerful storm will punch into the Northwest down into Northern California.  Ahead of this system, winds will be very strong across Southern California and into the Great Basin.

    And winds will be calm today, but starting tomorrow, firefighters are going to have a tougher time containing that wildfire that continues to threaten homes and lives in Conifer Colorado…

    That’s it for now.  I’m going home for a nap!  Thank goodness it’s the weekend.   Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    See ya Monday — (or NOT if they call my numbers tonight!  HA!)

Hi guys! I didn't get a ticket...we don't have lottery in MS...only casinos. I won $1000 from Publishers Clearing House in 2001. It was nice; they sent roses to my work and a check for $1000. I took it as a sign from God that it was okay for me to spend the money for LASIK surgery. I had it done on 9/6/01 (only a few days before 9/11). Haven't won anything from them since, but I do keep trying. Camping again. Hoping to be off Good Friday. Never am sure about that. Catch y'all later! :)

Hey folks, it's a beautiful sunny day in my neck of the woods. Joni, we got some heavy rain over the weekend. Friday night/Saturday morning we had a thunder storm. I was out on my front porch after midnight trying to get some lightning pictures. It was not in a good location for me to safely photograph but I did get one good picture. We had a little more rain last night but no thunder or lightning. I got some great pictures yesterday of the redbuds in bloom. Have a great day, all! Margie

Like the rest of you Weather Machiners, I didn't win the MegaMillions either. But I did win a microwave about 15 years ago from a neighborhood grocery store! So, at least I have that going for me....

I'll start today's blog with a scientific fact. If you took all the veins from your body and laid them end to end, you would die.

Hi all! Didn't win; probably should have bought a ticket! While you folks back East have been sucking up the warm weather, we here on the WA coast are just wrapping up our wettest March in history! Rivers are all high but since the rain comes all the time, there hasn't been any bad flooding yet.

Hello all: Now I didn't go out and purchase a lottery ticket. Did I make a mistake? Maybe we should have had a "pool of bloggers" together with a ticket, and perhaps we could have won and split the total. Just dreaming! I hope JD gets the prize, she does such a nice job with the weather, especially having to get up and inform us at 5 a.m. Best of luck to all of you. Have a nice week-end. Audrey

Good Friday afternoon! I'm pretty sure it's 5 o'clock somewhere, but it's only 4:15 here. 45 more minutes till my weekend. Should be a good one weatherwise. Hoping to get in a little downtime and reading. No special plans. Probably will be camping back at Lake Okatibbee next week, but I'll still have to get up and come to work. Y'all have a great weekend and "Good Luck" to all who have lottery tickets! Gwen :)
