Gotta See It To Believe It!

Hello All,

We live near Baton Rouge, LA and the average temperature for December in our area is 63 for the high and 42 for the low. Today the high was 72 and the high tomorrow will be 78!

Last week the weatherman said it was going to get cold and possibly have a "wintery mix" by Thursday (12/11). We all thought "Yeh Right!"

Well, take a look at the "wintery mix"...believe it or not this is South Louisiana!

P.S. The power went out that day and night and we ended up having to "camp" in the trailer to get heat. The girls actually enjoyed it. Nothing like Camp Driveway!

Sorry if this seemed insensitive to those of you up north dealing with major snow storms and power outages. It was just that this was a major event for our area!

Hope all is well with you and you have a Merry Christmas otherwise!

You got Winter. We had freezing rain all last night in the North/East and now they are calling for a storm Christmas, not sure what it's going to be yet.

Snow

Snow, what a unique sight. Right now, we have a 4 ft drift across the garage and another 2 1/2 ft the rest of the way, and that is normal for storms coming off the great lakes. Oh, Ya, the snow blower broke today. OOPS!

It's been an absolute mess here in the Seattle area for the last week. Thankfully I made sure my generator was good to go, thus insuring we didn't loose power. The weather folks told us it warm up by Christams day and go away. Well it snowed 3 more inches on Christmas Eve, then 3 more during Christmas day, that on top of the 11 or so inches we already had.

In over 40 years in the northwest I have NEVER seen a white Christmas.

Al Gore can kiss my butt, "Global Warming" what a crock!

Isn't it amazing how Politicians and Celebrities all of a sudden are experts about everything. However, those of us with actual brains know it's just their next performance and unfortunately because they're celebrities the Media thinks it's worthy to broadcast. God help us if Brittney Spears or Miley Cyrus take up a cause like BIG AL!
