Well, we had the freezing rain all day, and thankfully it stopped for the night. It was still fun to take my girls outside and show them “crunchy” snow, ice covered cars, icicles everywhere etc. They were amazed by the sound of their footsteps and took a THOUSAND pictures!

It’s freaking cold out tonight clear and cold... standing by the rescue filling breathing cylinders for the guys on a second alarm fire got freaking cold it was 40 during the day and the temp plummeted tonight I’m frozen. It is 20 out and feel of 8.

Oh trust me I feel for you and have been there a few nights myself. I can tell you this from experience this newer Turnout Gear the PBI and Nomex are not as warm as the old cotton duck stuff.

Time for some cool.  Literally this has to do with ice crystals in the atmosphere...

While I was practicing my swing, with a shovel, moving the "Buffalo sunshine" that fell in the supposed winter storm the day before, I looked up and said, "Hey cool a sun dog" seeing the one on the right.  Then noticed the one on the left and said, "awesome a double sun dog!" And then I noticed the top one and the halo connecting all three and the sun pillar rising from the central sun and (took the picture first) then called to my wife and said "you gotta come out and see this!"  as she is a science teacher too.

There are secondary refractions off each one of the three sun dog nexus that look like horns or crowns and sun pillar like a beam upward from the sun.  The lower ray is sun flare in the camera lens. It's all about the refraction of sunlight off ice crystals in the atmosphere at exactly 120⁰ of incidence between the observer's eyes and the sun. It is due to the angle of the microscopic crystal pattern of frozen water most easily seen in the form of a snowflake that is the amplified growth of the crystal before it descends to the ground.

Can't help it, taught both Earth Science and Physics, and it still doesn't help my handicap ⛳🏌️‍♂️

WOW would love to sit down and pick your brain---- Physics always amazes me and when I was in School I loved earth science

33 degrees here, that’s Celsius , so about 91F, a rare hot day this summer. Very pleasant having a beer in the pool. 
 

All that aside, really feeling for those of you suffering through crazy and unusual weather for where you are. 
 

Stay safe and hopefully warm.

It started here about an hour ago.....We are in the 1" - 5" band.  The stuff coming down now is hard snow / light ice.  It's falling at about the speed of rain rather than slowly like flakes.

 We talked to our neighbor at our Ohio condo today, she said we got 13" with more to come Thursday and Sunday nights. Weird that we got more snow at the west end of the lake than you did on the southeast side of Cleveland. Generally we have always gotten less than my son in Hinkley. 

We're right on 76 east of Akron so we straddle the line where it could go either way with the snow totals.

We were in the 4-6 inch band for this latest storm and we woke up to 4 inches already on the ground with the storm just starting.  Looks like we are going to get more than the initial forecast

We were in 6-8” band yesterday. Got the report from our vendor this morning and it said “we will be a 4 part storm” never a good way to start an email! But we are 3-5” over the next 32 hours or so. Part 1/3 will be light snow part 2/4 heavy wet snow. But 5” over that long a span I’ll take it!

3-6 sounds delightful. One scrape halfway through then another at the end.

I noticed something odd last time I was shoveling because I’m a lefty. I strongly prefer shoveling lefty, but golf righty. So none of that scoop and throw is helping my off-season strength training.

While I was practicing my swing, with a shovel, moving the "Buffalo sunshine" that fell in the supposed winter storm the day before, I looked up and said, "Hey cool a sun dog" seeing the one on the right.  Then noticed the one on the left and said, "awesome a double sun dog!"

There are secondary refractions off each one of the three sun dog nexus that look like horns or crowns and sun pillar like a beam upward from the sun.  The lower ray is sun flare in the camera lens. It's all about the refraction of sunlight off ice crystals in the atmosphere at exactly 120⁰ of incidence between the observer's eyes and the sun.

Learned all about these in my meteorology undergrad, they are one of those fun things that can happen. Too bad the sun was a bit low with the trees. I am personally a fan of lenticular clouds on mountain tops. image.png.2bf144ec3282c93bd02a027d924075b7.png

Saw those while I was at Fort Bliss TX (El Paso) in the early spring years ago, happened to be there when the desert bloomed.  The freaky thing was the dust devils that spun up and meandered across the area and watched one guy unaware he was about to be consumed by one suddenly burst into a blizzard of paper when the folder he was carrying was blown out of his hands LOL

We get dust devils here all the time.  Some are little and I've been hit by them; other are big and go hundreds of feet in the air.  I wouldn't want to be hit by one of those!!  Dust Devils is the name of our minor league baseball team.

We don't get many of those around here. Though we do get the fun changes in weather from time to time.

We get them pretty bad here in AZ too. A new-ish thing that's popped up over maybe the last 10 yrs is "haboobs".. or maybe it's haboobies? Silly word but they're real. And serious. Looks like this..
