**How Cold is it?**/Snow, Snow, & MORE Snow

Greetings!

We woke up to a winter wonderland this morning. The storm is winding down - - between 16" and 18" here in Anna (IL) and 20"+ in Harrisburg (IL). We now have the wind whipping the snow into drifts - - gusts to near 30 MPH with temperatures in the low single-digits (wind chill the last time that I checked was -9). I didn't venture too far outside of the house, but the photos below are a representation of what we are experiencing.

The local news this morning included a story on rescue operations to take stranded motorists from their vehicles in ditches to the emergency centers being established at local public buildings.

The temp isn't single digits anymore but we had more snow than I've seen in a long time and my employer cancelled work due to the winter storm warning. That extends my vacation by a day

Actually, as global temperatures rise, storm intensity becomes greater. More hurricanes, more torrential summer rains, and... uh, yeah...more snow....

sorry about that.

Ya know, Airstreams look like they’re comfortable in the snow, they blend right in. And when you are inside one with the furnace going, they’re really comfortable. Keep warm everyone and have a happy holiday!

An oddity

According to the news last evening, the only signifigant snow falling in the country at that moment was in south Texas. Kenedy, TX, about 2 1/2 hours south of here, had 5" of the white stuff and Houston had enough to build snowmen. We had none.

After a week of predicting record lows of 11 degrees in the Hill Country for last night, it was 28 degrees here at 7am this morning. I had re-winterized the trailer, but 28 degrees is hardly low enough to need it.

Right now, it is sunny and probably 50 degrees with not a breath of wind. There are 6 does browsing on my front lawn and a mocking bird and a cardinal are taking turns at bashing their beaks against the tinted upper window in my office.

It is just 15 days before we use the trailer again for the Mid-Winter IBT meeting at Montgomery, TX.

-6 in Akron, Ohio Christmas morning.

We are visiting the kids for Christmas. Looks like Wednesday will be a good day to head back south.

Will pickup wife's prescriptions and then look for a good weather window to head for the valley. Mission, Texas ; here we come.

News article said Victoria, Texas had first snowfall at Christmas in 86 years.

It seems like the weather goes from one extreme to another! Today right now at 6:31 p.m. the temp is 59.8°F in our little town. This being January I would expect it to be more like it was when I started this thread.

**How Cold is it?**

This evening at 5:00 p.m. here in Anna, IL, it was 66 degrees; and when we returned from Vienna, IL at 7:30 p.m., it was still 62 degrees. From near blizzard conditions just before Christams, to flooding rains last week, to a forecast of severe thunderstorms for tomorrow.

To a return to arctic temps by the weekend again with potential for some more falling slippery in between. What a roller coaster ride!
