  • Beautiful picture of snow in PA!

    Hi all!

    So we’re getting a little shot of wintry weather across the Northeast right now.  It’s a quick moving system, and it’s going to cause some traffic delays heading home tonight, but it will be winding down over the next few hours.

    Winter weather advisories are still up for several states with a few slushy inches expected.  Some isolated amounts closer to 6″ are possible in more mountainous areas.  

    Here’s a great picture sent to me by sunrise207 Elaine Karpinski on twitter from Pennsylvania.  So pretty , isn’t it?

    In other big weather news, flood watches are in effect across portions of Northern California where a big rain event is going to begin tomorrow and continue  through the weekend.  A widespread area of 4-8″ is possible and will extend into extreme southwestern Oregon.  Isolated rain totals over 10″ are possible, especially along the coast.  This will certainly be something we’ll be watching over the next several days.

    Hope you guys are all doing well!  I have to admit, I did more online shopping for myself yesterday than my family!!  Heehee!

Hey Gwen! I've been checking in occasionally today but didn't post anything since I posted the last comment. I was thinking the same thing about it being so quiet. Maybe we did scare everyone away! I hope you have a great camping adventure this weekend. We're supposed to get some warmer weather over the weekend and into early next week. It was a nice sunny day today but the wind made it feel even colder than the actual temperature in the low 40's. Hey to anyone else out there! Margie

Hi folks! I may be talking to myself. Looks like little action since yesterday. Margie, I guess when you and I said we didn't like crowds everybody took us seriously and stayed away. For anyone who checks in, I hope you've had a good Wednesday. As for me, I got all my guys paid. Life is good! we're camping again this week. Lake Okatibbee is lovely...and very quiet this time of year. Cold overnight (28) but should be getting a little warmer tomorrow. Y'all have a great day! Gwen :)

Hi Everyone. Gwen, I hate dealing with crowds so shopping online is great. I've been ordering my photos from Wal-Mart & selecting home delivery because it's worth a couple bucks in postage in order to avoid going into that store! I also like it when places offer free shipping. That's the best! Hey Dee, you brightened up my day with your sweet comment--thank you! Feel free to chime in every once in a while. We're a fun bunch--most of the time! Have a great evening, everyone! Margie

Hi guys! Margie, I did some online shopping last Friday as I was recuperating from Thanksgiving. I try to do as much as possible online, cause I hate crowds. Dwane and I bought our presents to ourselves. We got 2 rocker/recliners for our living room. Now to just keep the grandkids out of my chair. That may be impossible! Cold here today (48 right now). We had storms last night, and today has just been gray and getting colder. it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas! TTFN! Gwen :)

Hey Janice, I did more shopping for myself yesterday, too! I took advantage of some sales to get stuff that I need. I have to wait a couple weeks until my finances are better before I start my major shopping. What's great about online is that you can order online and go pick it up in the store and you don't have to walk around all day. I did that for Lowes yesterday & picked the stuff up at the service desk after work. It's no fun walking around stores when you're tired. Take care, all. Margie
