I grew up in Buffalo, got married and moved to Fillmore NY. Had enough of snow in the south towns so I moved to NC And will never go back to Buffalo in the winter. Love NC.

We finally got some cooler temps... 50s.

It was 65 when I crawled out of the trailer this AM.

We had 80s all last week.

In Northwest Washington, we've had one nasty snow and ice storm, first week in Jan. 350,000 homes without power for several days, particularly south of Seattle down towards Olympia. Family in Olympia were out for 8 days, but were able to go stay with friends who got their power back in just 3 days.

It was a wake up call for them. SIL is a digital enthusiast. They only have cell phones and all their routine billing (power, phone, city utilities, etc.) is all done on line and no paper passes around. For some reason, they didn't have 12V chargers for their phones. After the first 2 days, they were incommunicado. Both cell phones' batteries died. While they still had one working, he called me to find out if the electricity company had any idea when they would get power back. I checked, and they needed the account number to identify the neighborhood - it's on SIL's computer, which was dead. I think they'll be getting 12V chargers for both phones and the lap-top!

After that one storm, the weather has been very good. We got above 60F last Monday and Tuesday, about 15 above normal. Back to rain by Friday though.
