    I hear it is going to get alot worse before it gets better Jim. The American Red Cross just told us to start packing our bags and prepare to ship out soon. Their big concern was the entire Mississippi River and the Ohio River area, the entire river, from north to south, and anything in the middle.

    The weather folks have been calling it a big El Nin~o. I think they could change the label to Big Daddy without many objections (and I wouldn't have to fudge the enya).

    In my neck of the woods there has been more precip than usual, but the Big Thing is warmth. I spent Christmas afternoon at a nephew's place near Okemo Mountain. It was 56°F when I got there; that is way high.

    Even sunny Southern California is anticipating rain for the next 4-5 days. We may get as much as 2" of rain. They are calling it "STORMWATCH 2016". Yeah, pretty embarrassing compared to real life winter flooding you folks are experiencing.

    My rain gauge showed about an inch over last few days. Skies are blue today and around 70 degrees. The pups are outside exploring everything.
    Wow Jim your area got it bad and what a terrible time for this to happen. Realize this storm goes completely across the whole nation.
    Usually this time of year usually being rather dry I am afraid of the fireworks starting fires, but not this year.

    Right on, Tommy. God bless all of you who are dealing with weather related troubles. (Or any other troubles, for that matter.)

    I think it's nice that you love Jim. I don't know that he's willing to move for you, though.

    Weather forecast for my home town...:eek:


    :popcorn:

    Lyon County Kentucky:gaah:

    WINTER STORM WARNING
    Mike Kinnis has provided the latest. This has been changing but at this time this is expected:
    The time line for tonight may be 8pm starting with freezing rain and icing on roads. We are looking at a major winter storm with icing and heavy snowfall. Ice could be between .10-.30 of an inch.
    Accumulations of snow could run from 6-12+ inches. Wind will also be a player with projected gusts up to 35 miles per hour.
    We could have white out conditions during the heaviest snowfall which prevent our plows from moving
    So. If you need anything over the next couple of days maybe get it today. Sunday will be sunshine and warmer. But till then, due to ice buildup under the snow, roads may be difficult to clear until Sundays warm up.
    Be careful.
    If you do travel in this carry some water, food and blanket in car just in case. Last year I-24 had people trapped for 12 hours. Be safe. Wade White
