Oh no.
My holiday travel plans are ruint. (Local accent because hillbillies)
What ever shall I do?

Wait. It's Pennsyltucky. So I can expect rain an 59 degrees on the 25th.

Oh, and the magic 🌟 🌟 thing?

Quilts of clouds between them and I.

At least I have a bale of kale to eat.
Yay.

Looks like the temperatures finally drop below 20 degrees on Christmas Eve.  Allergy relief at last!

If you sauté a bale of kale in butter it will wilt down to the size of a flake or two, and taste a hell of a lot better than raw or roasted.

I've been told that if someone drops a bag of ice on I-285, it shuts down the city for two days.

Unless I'm missing something, that forecast is for pouring rain and snowpack melting, followed by a flash freeze.

Part of the problem is that instead of putting down a brine solution, they put down a solution made from black tea and sugar.

Looks to be in the upper 40's here in Eastern Iowa for most of the week, and on Christmas. Kind of odd. I think this time last year I was shoveling/snow blowing at least a good 10 inches of snow, battling sub zero temps.
 
2020-12-20 9:37:34 AM  
Will have to wait and see.... already gassed up the snow blower.. started at the first pull.. this usually prevents snow here..  city regs demand that sidewalks are shoveled promptly : up to the homeowner.. I hit them and walkways on both sides of the street.. takes about 2 hours.  Older folks don't do well swinging a shovel, me included..  Christmas Cookies are a good reward, and nobody gets fined for non-compliance.. bring it on...

Same, it's been abnormally warm here in minnesota. Looking like we might get our first brown Christmas in a long time. I don't envy southerns.

I love the dramatic chart with the deathly wind chills. It says we will be in the -10/-20 area. The actual real weather service forecast is temps at +21 and 5-10 mph winds. I think that we will survive.

From the article:
The next disturbance will slide in from Canada Monday morning and bring with it a quick burst of snow to the upper Midwest. We are not expecting any significant accumulation, but there could be a couple of slick spots, and visibility may drop briefly.

'Some slick spots!" Terrifying!

"Brown Christmas" has the inner child in me snickering. That aside, hope you enjoy the Holidays :)

You might want to check the forecast.  There might be some snow but knowing ATL weather it might be snowmageddon, it might be 70 and sunny.

As I need to assemble a 12' trampoline well after the kids are asleep, yeah, I could do without a White Christmas

Unless you live in Western Oregon, then it's just wet.

I was worried "White Christmas" was code for the MAGA attempt to overthrow the election.

Please send some snow to central/south Texas for Christmas. I miss it.

Also, there's never a wrong season for iced tea... or so I'm told.

If they're predicting it, nothing will happen.  We'll all rush to the stores and strip them bare, and then whine and moan about all the bread taking up the freezer space while the milk goes bad.

We have snowmageddon when no one predicts anything other than flurries, and then the calls from Birmingham start rolling in.

I assumed it was a joke.  But if not, you can buy a clamp on snowplow attachment for loader buckets.

Cost a few hundred but probably cheaper than reimbursing the city for a sidewalk and curb repair..

My favorite thing about that picture?  JUst in front of where that tree is, there used to be a large confederate soldier statue  looming over the courthouse, and this summer it went away...without violence or knuckleheads screaming about it.
