    Rain and more rain. Up north they are dealing with heavy glazed frost. Last three days, the north had a code Red weather alert.

    The season of death has finally arrived in force in my neck of the woods.

    15 degrees F (feels like -1)
    17mph wind
    Light snow

    Very nice. Last Wednesday 13/01/16 we had 44.5 deg C, and the following day struggled to about 19 deg C after a strong Southerly change, which for Aussies ( well..Southern climes of Aus, at least )means fresh winds pushed up from the Antarctic. But, I guess it is High Summer here, after all.

    Not "much" weather on the ground. Calm, clear and cold, -12 C and a decent moon. However, the space weather was a bit more interesting. K-index 5, means a minor geomagnetic storm, a so called force G1. Snapped some pics from the deck tonight:

    Well in the Blue Ridge foot hills, it's been down to +5 degrees F at night and just about freezing during the day.

    We're about to get slammed with two plus feet of snow and 25-35 mph winds.

    Snowblower filled up after the weatherization junk was cleaned out. Tines re lubed, tires aired up and fuel tank full. The generators were load tested, though I don't think we'll need them. Better prepared than not.

    Sunny in the low 50's today. The beautiful Mrs. Gardiner and I spent a few hours cleaning up some gardens and the lawn. I just read about the big storm Jonas getting ready to dump major snow on the East coast members. Stay warm and dry my friends.

    Because it aint working.

    Actually it's an old worn out universal sized Cover Craft Blok It 380 over a custom fit Cover Craft Evolution 4. Cats kept using the evolution for a scratching post so... I covered the cover.
    Under it is a Honda Prelude.


    ^^ those little sticks poking out are 25" wiper blades. The arms raise them about 6" above the window.



    Meanwhile mother nature is helping out with the van...and driveway for that matter.

    Hi bykfixer,

    How much time had elapsed between the two photos? Do you have power, food and drink?

    Photo 1 was what we awoke to on Saturday after the storm had moved inland over us a bit and it drizzled all night. We had a 3/4" glaze over everything. But the storm had moved north.

    The next photos were about an hour before the wrap around effect had ceased. We called it the Chuck Norris roundhouse kick affect due to all the winds.

    We were stocked up ok on items provided the roof didn't come off the house.

    Folks south of us were plagued with ice and those east got high winds to go with their ice. North and west are all buried in a powdery Utah snow.

    Today the big dig begins.





    ^^ Mother nature hooked me up regarding the van.
    There's concrete showing on the other side.

    I watched the radar and kept thinking man it sucks to be those folks. That pink on the radar in a snow storm is never a good thing.
    Later I saw reports of a lot of folks in NC being in the dark

    When I lived in Greensboro there was an ice storm that coated the place with 4" of it. Living in a high point in a top floor apartment I watched a lightshow as one transformer after another was terminated.
    So I started a batch of home made chicken noodle soup before retiring for the evening hoping the chicken cooked before the power went out.

    Next morning I awoke to a warm apartment. Whut-thuh? Flipped on a light switch...light? Really?
    Well my chicken soup had cooked all night so the noodles had pretty much melted into a mush, risen to the top and begun to crispy-fy.

    From the Va border north to well south of high point south, to east of raleigh and west to statesville was completely dark. But an approx 2 mile radius around me never lost power.

    Hope you guys have power back.
