Seriously freaky weather outside right now

February 3, 2008

It’s a regular MidWest thunderstorm outside, with lightning and thunder … except it’s snowing instead of raining. 2 to 4 inches predicted by morning. The whole county had just dug itself out from last Friday’s 8-inch snowstorm. Tomorrow it’s supposed to get up to 55 degrees with possible severe thunderstorms.  Early last week it was zero degrees and last weekend it was in the fifties with a tornado or two in the transition. And before that, below zero.  And before that, shirtsleeves weather. 

Could be some flash flooding tomorrow from 12 inches of wet snow melting all at once.

    With credit to Randy Quaid… “I’ve been sayin’ it for 10 damn years…”

    So… the freaky weather is caused by invading aliens?  Maybe if we fire an ATAM up its primary weapon portal;-)

    I lived up north for the first 18 years of my life, and I never saw a “thunder-snowstorm” until I moved to Alabama and experienced the “Storm of the Century” a few years back.  That was weird.

    Enjoy it as a rare event, if you can tolerate the other effects.

    Yup … it’s either aliens or climate change/disruption.  ;)
