It's only February, but we are starting to get
GRAUPEL
once in awhile, instead of just snow.
We don't usually get graupel (we pronounce it gropple) until later in March or April. Still deep snow banks everywhere, but it got up
into the 40's today.

Meanwhile the blizzard of sunlight continues here, and the poor sufferers who have to go out in it have resorted to using their cars' air-conditioners to keep themselves alive while they make their way to work and back. Will this damned winter never end?

Nah--we'd take a significant portion of the Pacific with us, don't forget. Bimeby it would settle out into a loverly atmosphere and we would be a lot like SoCal is today, safely in orbit and well-removed from a lot of the insanity. We'd have some of the most innovative engineers on Earth with us, too, so we could tool up a solar-driven economy, using the hot side of our landmass, and be happily oil-free.

We're in the middle of a full-bore sun blizzard here. The stuff drips from tree branches, runs along the streets, and stacks up in people's drives. In some areas people have to wear protective goggles and special lotions on their generous amounts of exposed skin. Traffic slows down due to the glare. Some people forget how to drive in full sun and have accidents until they re-learn their SoCal driving skills...

Snow on the ground in 49 states

(Hawaii is the only non-participant.)

"More than two-thirds of the nation's land mass had snow on the ground when the day dawned, and then it snowed ever so slightly in Florida to make it 49 states out of 50."

"The idea of 50 states with snow is so strange that the federal office that collects weather statistics doesn't keep track of that number and can't say whether it has ever happened. The office can't even say whether 49 out of 50 has ever taken place before."

The article has some comments on past statistics and "explanations" for the recent weather in the US. Although the explanations are somewhat superficial, they might be of interest to those who care to look.

A lovely 5-inch snowfall here in Mississippi. I actually got to put on boots and have snow crunch under my feet as I walked the happy but befuddled dog leaving tracks from one mailbox to the next. Beautiful fluffy stuff in the tall pines, the Leyland cypresses, the Bradford pear trees, and frosting the muscadine vines. Meanwhile, the cat is still pissed off about the whole thing.

This has been a hell of a fall and winter. I have great hopes that the floods and freezes will eradicate a lot of our bug friends which have been wintering over for too many mild ones.

DIRE WARNINGS OF PENDING SNOW!!!

Parts of South brace for first snow in decade
Winter storm warnings span the Gulf Coast states; Interstate-49 shut in La.
The Associated Press
updated 2:38 p.m. CT, Fri., Feb. 12, 2010

PENSACOLA, Fla. - It took back-to-back blizzards to paralyze the nation's capital, but in the Deep South it only takes a couple inches of snow.

Flakes were falling — or threatened — Friday from Texas to the Florida Panhandle and then up along the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina, bringing a rare white landscape to spots that haven't seen snow in a decade or longer. The storm was crawling east out of Texas, where it left the Dallas area with more than a foot of snow, nearly 200 traffic accidents, thousands without power and hundreds of canceled flights.

Far less snow was falling in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, though the effect was still crippling.

Just the anticipation of an inch of snow was enough to close schools in the Florida Panhandle, while classes also were canceled in parts of Alabama. Nearly two-dozen school districts closed across Georgia because of the snow forecast. ...

The southern Alabama city of Andalusia had recorded its largest snowfall since 1973 — 2 inches as of Friday morning. The city of 8,800 near the Florida line was getting ready to close its streets because of snow, which no one could remember happening before, said city building inspector Micah Blair. ...

And as much as 3 inches could hit Savannah, Ga., where snow was last traced in February 1996 — "and that was only 0.2 inches ...

In Atlanta, Delta Air Lines canceled 1,100 flights for Friday in anticipation of as much as 2 inches of snow expected in the region. AirTran also said Friday that it was canceling more than 60 flights in or out of Atlanta because of the threat of snow.

[I guess it depends on what you're used to - and prepared for.]


A side note (in another article) is that the recent unusually cold weather is estimated to have produced a possible 50 percent(?) kill of some "invasive species" that have been a concern in Florida and adjacent areas recently - huge tropical snakes of a few kinds, iguanas, and some others. Lovers of "exotic pets" are of course citing this rare event in opposition to the recent import ban on snakes "big enough to eat our children."

" Schools were shuttered and flights canceled across the South on Friday as snow began falling...."

When I moved to the D.C. area in early March, 1977, there was a heavy coating of ice & snow. Later, the local channel 4 weatherman reported that this was the first 'recorded' time that there was snow on the ground in all of the lower 48 states.
I suppose we may be near that again. The jet stream is taking quite a dip....

PENSACOLA, Fla. – Schools were shuttered and flights canceled across the South on Friday as snow began falling, bringing a rare white landscape that could stretch into areas that haven't seen snow in a decade — or longer.

Winter storm warnings spanned the Gulf Coast states early Friday as the snow crawled east out of Texas, where it left the Dallas area with more than a foot of snow, nearly 200 traffic accidents and hundreds of canceled flights. Snow, ice and sleet closed parts of Interstate 49 in central Louisiana early Friday.

Areas of northern and central Louisiana got 5 inches or more of snow before dawn Friday. In southern Mississippi, 3 inches had fallen in McComb and 2 inches were on the ground in Tylertown. One to 3 inches of snow had fallen in Jackson. Snow also began falling in southern Alabama, where up to 5 inches was expected.

If you have serious snow, you might as well get some pleasure out of it.

Here are the directions for following a tradition from Sweden. When its cold and snowy, you make a little 'igloo' of snowballs and burn a candle inside it.

One night long ago, I was going to have board meeting at my house one winter night. I knew that people would be tired and discouraged that day, so I built one of these near my front door. One member said that her heart lifted at the sight of it, and that made it worthwhile for me.

I made the snowballs stick together by spraying them with water from a spray bottle and quickly pressing them down. Since the temperature was about 0 F, they froze immediately.
