    If we consider lovingly cared for Arborvitae family, I spoke too soon. This snapshot doesn't show it, but there's a rope supporting it…damage from a few years ago -- heavy, wet snow.

    conditions are occurring with near zero visibility. Travel is very
    dangerous and could become impossible tonight. Temperatures will
    continue dropping to below zero overnight with wind chills
    reaching the 25 below to 40 below zero range by morning. This will
    be especially dangerous to those that may become stranded. DO NOT
    TRAVEL UNLESS IT IS AN EMERGENCY!
    A Blizzard Warning now covers all of central and southern

    I just took the dog out for a walk. The wind is blowing hard, so it's hard to say how much snow we've gotten. The front yard has at least 6", but there are some spots that are actually pretty bare. Temps this morning were 42F and raining. Tonight, we'll be down in the single digits. Cold for the next few days, but at least it's supposed to be sunny tomorrow. :)

    …meanwhile, back to the thread's Subject…

    I'm going to assume this is some sort of processing artifact, and isn't really real:

    This event happened yesterday, the 24th…is it a Festivus or Christmas miracle?

    We had torrential rain yesterday, then gales late afternoon, then snow through the evening / into the night. Have about 5" on the ground at present. City crews did their typically fantastic job and streets are essentially clear. Had 17° this morning, headed for single digits tonight. Today's high of 22° has come and gone.

    Merry Christmas, Gang - Stay warm and safe!

    With the rains followed by cold, please be careful for ice. Our blizzard started with rain, too, but while our driveway has a few slick spots, for the most part it's navigable.

    Merry Christmas to you, and to all! :)

    Roughly the same here but with lows remaining in the twentys and no snow accumulation, just the snow globe type of flurries. Quite pretty while it lasted. :newpalm:
