I thought you said midwest....................your in Illinois. That's north. Down here in the real midwest we got 5 degrees this morning and 3" on the ground.......72 last sunday.

Oh well this should be winters last harsh blast. (hopefully)

They're talking 65-70 here on Thursday and Friday. Last night is was in the single digits here. It won't be long now. The TVA gods are starting to raise the lake to summer pool.

We got 4" of snow yesterday and temps in the teens. It should all be gone by tomorrow evening, tuesday at the latest. Last weekend, it was 70! This is somewhat typical for NW Arkansas.

I am planning on the first launching in three weeks and this cold snap is cutting into my prep time

We got about 2 in. in a hour. I have never seen it snowing and thundering at the same time. It was pretty weird. 70 last weekend and then snow last Monday. No wonder everyone is sick. Come on warm weather.

That must have been the snow that started while we were at Bruces around 2pm. It quit snow right after we left and rained the rest of the way home. temp was always 41-44. Must have been a line from Indy to St. Loius, Rain one side, snow the other.

Default Had the snowblower out twice in 24 hours

All right this'll be enough! I had to dig my way into the polebarn to work on the boat, now it's too damn cold.
