Too early. Hell's freezing over.

Got the same thing here Cliff.  Schools closed and idiots out on the road, welcome to the South in Winter.

Hasn't started here yet but should be soon.When it snows I just stay home. Can't afford to have my truck torn up by someone with too high an estimate of their driving skills!

Sure is pretty though.  That's why I just like to visit the white stuff in a rental car!

It is very pretty and the beauty of a southern snow is it's gone in a few days or less. Makes for a great mini staycation...B)

Limbs are breaking now. :(

I've got my fingers crossed I will have power tonight.

Good luck Charles.

I was just in New Orleans yesterday and it was getting really cold there.  It looks like the whole south is getting hammered.  There is supposed to be an endurance race at Barber this weekend and the track is covered in snow and ice.  COTA in Texas is in the same boat.

Stay safe and warm Cliff.

This is a wet/heavy snow and the trees suffer the most.  The good news is that the ground temp is not at freezing so the roads are still very drivable and the forecast is for some warmer/sunny weather, at least in my part of the South.

Hmmmm, +50 F here in the great white north. My igloo is melting!

Sorry to rub this in.

Only 84 degrees here in the desert today.  But the wind chill factor brings it down to 82. 😎

Stay safe and throw another log in the fireplace.

This is where we're at after 2 hours. The salt trucks are evidently currently stuck on the interstate. Started sleeting hard a little while ago. More moisture on the way...

24 Hours of Lemons is at Road Atlanta this weekend, too. Not a good weekend for endurance racing in the South.

They sort of blew the forecast. The other day they really were expecting most of it to be in the mountains. Not supposed to accumulate here. One of the few jobs where you can be wrong 30% of the time and still be good at your job :P

I just went on a beer run and the roads are beginning to freeze here.  The snow has moved on though.

Yeah Patcon, the weather girls are pretty to look at but that's it.  I believe that's all they need but then Al Roker??? LOL

I heard earlier today that you all down south got some snow. Must be a rarity for you guys. We're supposed to get some snow here tomorrow, probably from the same storm, I bet. Looks like driving season's over.

Yes, it's still snowing in my neck of the woods. I'll have to shovel my driveway and front walk since they aren't in the sun. Otherwise, almost all of it will be gone by Monday.

They brined the roads yesterday here in the Philadelphia area. Fun car driving season is officially over for me until the roads are clean in the spring.

Bummer part for me is that it ended with a whimper. I was out with the Z a week or so ago and blew a coolant hose. Limped home and parked it. Didn't get to fixing it yet, so I even lost the last week of "drivability". Missed my chance for a last hurrah of the season.    :(

And it just started snowing here in the last five minutes. Sigh.

Or it really is "hell"

 Wish I had snow instead of this. Thank God it stayed north of us by 8 miles. 3rd pic is the next day. Its the Thomas fire, burning 148,000 acres so far. Been burning since Monday. Send some of that snow this way :)

Ew, that looks bad.  Glad it missed you but feel bad for those it didn't.  Wonder when they'll start spending money on things that matter like changing the weather by cloud seeding?  Oh wait, we need to go to Mars. :rolleyes:
