Snow

Doppler radar from 5:55pm shows snow right down to the coast. Will we wake up tomorrow in white. I doubt we will right at my house, but elsewhere?

Oh, man! I hope it hasn't already passed over us! I am looking forward to alot of white stuff in the morning! There's an inch or so sticking down Fortuna way, with all the trees decked in white!

I love it! Been snowing most of the afternoon here in the hills of Fortuna. Temperature is 35.1 on our deck so it's reasonable to assume that it will continue to snow tonight.

Brace yourselves for the approaching ice age . Pope Owl Gore, convene an ecumenical council and dump your shares of Generation Investment Management. How will the enviro nazis spin this to decrease individual liberty?

Now the doppler radar shows the snow moving inland. Oh well. Radar doesn't always show everything that's actually happening.

Weather.com says the low tonight will be 33 degrees. It's already 33 degrees so it will probably get colder. Might be a good freeze, although I hope not. Watch out for ice on the roads.

Kids have a snowman in Blue Lake this afternoon. My son wants to stay homefrom school tomorrow. Too much fun to be had with all the snow. About 3 inches here.

It didn't stick here in Loleta, but it is very ice. Be careful driving this morning everyone.

No ice that I can see around my house in Eureka. It was a actually warmer when I got up this morning, 36 degrees, than when I went to bed at 33 degrees.

Still, there's probably ice on some of the roads.

The roads were clear between Loleta and Fortuna. There is snow all around the hills on the Eel River delta and some snow in Fortuna.

The snow didn't stick in McKinleyville close to the ocean yesterday but the hail last night is still thick on cars, driveway, deck and lawn. Our outside temp yesterday during the 4 hours it snowed was 37 and that probably just made the slush that melted as soon as it hit the ground.

ΛΕΟΝΙΔΑΣ,

You and your head-in-the-sand ilk are getting awfully boring by now, don'cha think?

Yes- you hate anyhing 'liberal'or 'progressive'- we GET it!
You hate Al Gore because...well, just because! We GET it!
Dont give a rats-ass about the future?
We GET it!

Now, use that 'superior intellect' to find some solutions, that DONT involve nuking the rest of the planet, hows that?

It snowed, or there was a mix of rain and snow for a few hours in McKinleyville (near sutter and central).It didn't stick for the most part, but there were 1/4 inch thick patches collected here and there by the time it turned to rain and stopped snowing altogether. It snowed hard and they were big poofs of snow for the first hour.

Sorry- i just get a wee bit fed up with ΛΕΟΝΙΔΑΣ and all those who think no one thought about humans changing the climate BEFORE Al Gore came along, and they treat it as a big joke.

Believe me, snow is no joke!

Not everybody who lives at the coast realizes it, but Snow is very cold. It can actually freeze a person to death!!!

Luckily, though, as the freezing person approaches critically-cold core temperature, an illusion of warmth creeps into the brain, and the urge to go to sleep in the peaceful blizzard becomes overwhelming.

Then, if the frozen one is lucky, they stay frozen for a couple thousand years until someone discovers them, puts them in a refrigerated museum, and puts their picture on the cover of National Geographic Magazine.

So I guess snow - that cold, wet, nasty, white stuff - isn't so bad after all.
