ha ha it gonna do wot it gonna do


Last winter in east central PA the little snow that fell was swept away with a broom. This December nearly a foot fell a week before Xmas and excitingly thinking a rare white Christmas was locked in, a heavy rainstorm and temps in the 60s washed everything away on Xmas eve. Nature's cruel joke, it couldn't have waited just one day! Bah Humbug




I'm wanr SNOW this year. Danville Va havent seen snow in three years


Got some delicious snowfall this morning! Tasted like home and dirt!

Warmest Temps in January 2021 in N-W mountains of NC

Can anyone tell me the warmest days and which days over 45° for N-W NC mountains (Ashe) in January and February? Desperately need a partial roofing replacement. Thanks


Oh how I wish we would get snow in NC like we used to. I remember in the 80's we would have 3 or 4 big snow falls. Some times even in March. Now we are lucky to see a flake. I just wish my grandkids could experience playing In it like I did.


let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Cold wx

This is a formal protest against cold weather..... enough is enough already. Happens every winter. Dang dang dang.


snow is one of the most beautiful things there is. but people that beg for it dont stop and realize that the beauty is a beast. old people that cant afford heat freeze and die. folks have care wrecks, power lines come down. its hard to get out and go shopping for all ages, including the elderly. as ive gotten older, its just harder and harder. sorry. no snow.
