Well, not quite correct, prognosticators! They had issued a winter storm warning and predicted 5 – 8 inches of snow. Maybe they should have said 5/8 of an inch – then they wouldn’t have been so far off in this neck of the woods where we got just a tad bit more than a dusting, certainly less than 5/8 of an inch! However, you have to give the news reporters props for trying. I watched a news report this morning…

Just so that you won’t worry, I’ve already made my trip to Walmart for milk and bread! I’m all set. I imagine that tonight, the grocery stores will be full of folks trying to get ahead of the approaching winter “storm”. It’s certainly will be a storm for us if we get the expected 5 – 8 inches of snow. But, I’ve seen, frequently, those forecasts change rapidly from, say 5 – 8, to less than 2 or so. At…

It’s Friday afternoon; the house is warm and smells of rotisserie chicken; it’s snowing outside – nature’s little reminder to those of us that live in Charlotte that it’s still winter, and it’s pretty quiet inside, nothing but the hum of the heater, the turning of the rotisserie, and the occasional click of the shutter – well, there is the click of the keyboard keys when I’m working 🙂

There was much buzz yesterday ahead of winter storm Remus. As a matter of fact, the governor of North Carolina declared a state of emergency based on the forecast by The Weather Channel, which called for 5 – 8 inches of the white stuff. Personally, I didn’t believe it if the temperatures were to hold where they said, around 32 or 33. Mostly we got very heavy snow mixed with rain, yielding about MAYBE 1 inch of snow and a…

It seems that now every weather system that comes through needs a name. I remember when only hurricanes got named and when all of those names were names of women. 🙂 On Monday night, in came Winter Storm Octavia (sound ominous, no?). She stumbled into Charlotte, dropped some freezing rain, a little sleet, then went on about her merry way. Hardly a “storm”. One of my coworkers who just moved from New Jersey said that it was cool that he…

I’m special I took quite a few photos while walking in what passes for winter around here. In fact, we had close to a foot of snow. This was the most snow that I’d seen since I’ve been living in Charlotte. However, out of all of the photos that I took, this was my favorite one. This one, I didn’t go looking for, per se. I didn’t have to think about it. For the most part, the day had been…
