    Sunny and clear. High 60's or low 70's. Same as it was the day before and the day before that. And same as it will be tomorrow. Our weather is stable enough that the 5-day forecast temps only varies by about 3 or 4 degrees fro day to day.

    Nights down to low 40's and 30's. Had frost on the grass when I got home from work this morning (now that's SO not okay in SD!).

    ...and let me just add that my coworker's sister had to scrap frost from her windshield with her credit card because we are just not prepared for that kind of thing here!

    Coastal South Carolina here. Outside is warm and balmy, low 70"s. Its definatly a beach day,but I am deep in my books. This winter has been very warm, except we did get snow(SNOW?) on the second weekend of this month,pine tress cracking and falling. What a sound. Anyway,this weekend is supposed to be back in the 50's. nice while it lasted.

    I'm in Indiana and it's not snowing this year, it seems. Raining a lot, but it doesn't seem like winter. We have our niece from Florida here, who has never seen snow, and it doesn't look like the poor tot is going to this year either!

    O.K. How about this? Light snow with an earthquake on a day with a full moon in California... You tell me what is going on with these strange events? I hate earthquakes!!!

    I'm in the southwestern part of Texas, and today it is COLD! AND I LOVE IT COLD HERE! I hate Texas weather when it's hot and muggy, so quite naturally when it's cold, it's all right with me! I don't know how Texans live here when the weather turns muggy and hot. This past week, it's been hot and muggy, so had the air conditioner on. Then, overnight it seems, the temp drops to a cold one, so the heat comes back on, then.... Well, you get my drift. It's plain awful! Give me sunny California anyday!

    Let's see, Monday it was beautiful, almost 70 degrees & sunny. It's been nothing but downhill form there...

    All the schools are enjoying their second day of cancellations. The streets aren't bad, it's just that all of the ice has downed many trees and power lines. I think it was like 3,500 homes in this city are without power, and dozens of our streets are or have been impassable in the last 24 hours. They even shut down part of I-75 last night. My son's school district, notorious for NEVER cancelling, is doing just that because a dozen of it's schools are without power.

    I'm just glad I haven't had to work since Tuesday!!

    Anne in Kansas City here.....hi Peaceful!!
    Yep, the past two days have been interesting. We had some RNs and Techs call in Wed and Thurs. Guess What!!!....the patients all made it to the hospital for their ELECTIVE SURGERIES!!!! My goodness....I surely wouldn't risk my life and limbs just to get a hernia repair. (Two for one winter storm special: Come on in today and we'll fix your hip too!!! What a deal.)

    Anyway, Darren and I were blessed. We had a very large cottonwood tree cut down two weeks ago. This monster was butted up right against the house and was at least 80-90 feet tall. The base was about 4ft in diameter.....could have crushed our house if the ice had gotten it. Talk about timing!!!
    We also still have our power (and heat). Some in the K.C. area were told they won't be getting power back for three weeks. Yikes!

    The drive home today was oddly beautiful. Our ice-storm caused widespread destruction, however, the ice covered trees and grass look like crystal figures. Gorgeous. Everything sparkles.

    Have a good one,
    Anne
