Thread: First snow...

  1. #1

    First snow...

    in like 6 years!! Or atleast in the new house. It started late this afternoon while I was at the bank. I got a pic when I got home and then some right before dark so it would be easier to see. It's cold but not cold enough as it's like 35 right now. North of Atl is expecting 4'' of accumulation as it's already produced over 1''.

    Too bad about the fireplace. We used to have a really good insert when we lived in Ohio. We could get the temp. in our family room up to 85+ degrees. You could sit there in your underwear and look out at the snow piled up outside. It’s a great feeling. Cozy.

    If you have a lot of cold weather there, you might want to consider a free standing fireplace or a Franklin stove.

    Too much cold for me but as opposed to most places, it's very tolerable. We get cold, a wet cold, but it can be in the 20's one day and go back in the 50's the next. Our Winters don't last really long and not too blustery with wind. Rare is today for some snow as I bet I'll have a nice wintery pic in the a.m. Thought about a pellet stove or the like, but as long as I have my small heater close by, I'm good.

    Thx addiesue and anty.. I'm sure snow is on the way C.

    Great pics, Jeff.

    We got snow, too. I watched the flakes fall until I fell asleep. It's sleeting now, expected to turn to rain.

    We're due more white stuff here Saturday. Anyone else expecting frozen precip this weekend in an area where you generally don't get it?

    It's an EVENT when it happens here. I mean a break into regularly scheduled programming EVENT with forecasters telling us we are in a Winter Storm Warning because snow flakes are BEGINNING TO FALL. You'd think nuclear bombs were about to be detonated over the city.

    I bet most stores are out of milk, bread and toilet paper. What makes people go crazy for those things when snow is expected, when the flakes start? Do they think they'll want to drink more milk, eat more bread and use more toilet paper because it's snowing? Maybe they need all that toilet paper because they are drinking more milk and eating more bread. Maybe they, well, you know.

    I understand not wanting to be without certain items if the roads are bad and/or impassable, but it seems to be milk, bread and toilet paper most people think they'll be lacking.

    Me? I don't want to be without green tea, fresh fruits and veggies, and for the Wonder Dog in my life, her favorite treats. I haven't gone all Soldier of Fortune survivalist, but I keep what I need and want in abundance so I don't come up short. Maybe it's not driving in a city of the car obsessed or living alone with SCI and cp that has me planning my life in such advance.

    Whatever it is, think I'll head back to my bunker and sleep until daylight if I'm lucky, eh?
