The Sky is Falling!

Weather Alert! Weather Alert! Right now in Dallas, TX there is actual falling snow. Freezing precipitation, coming down with some serious gusto. Yesterday is was 75 degrees. According to my computer, it is currently 28. The news stations last night were buzzing with warnings of this Artic Blast that was sure to come. Everyone- stock up on batteries, milk, canned goods, bottled water! Find your ice scraper and your big huge jackets! It's cold, it's frozen, it's Armageddon, it's...WINTER!

Well, at least for the next week.

Wow, that is just whacked out, man! Here in the Canadian north (home of the igloo) we have yet to experiance any significant freezing precipitation, and it's the end of November. There is definately something wrong here!

It was coming down pretty good here for a bit last night, alas none of it stuck though.

Got lots of ice (but the roads are clear). We aren't used to this weather. People were running around here going crazy yesterday - my boss let me go an hour early because it was raining and getting colder already - sheesh. Nice of her, don't get me wrong...but this is Arkansas, we don't get that kind of weather here to get frantic.

And outside, it's probably 70+ here today. And it's DECEMBER. DECEMBER! There is supposed to be snow.

I wore my fur-lined boots last night. Deep regrets. I was sweating to death.

In Manitoba it's not officially winter until your first night of -40.
