    That's very true. They have to do that so people don't say "You never told us!"

    I'm up in Seattle for a couple of days. Luckily I went shopping before this happened.

    If you come back by boat, you're probably safer. The southern Oregon pass may be snowed in.

    The road from Redding to Ashland can be a real dusy this time of year. I think that I will avoid it.

    Dust? I did not expect that. Do you mean snow dusty or dirt dusty?

    DUESY was the word I was looking for. My 0200 brain is working as well as my spell checker.

    Tonight we got about 2 inches of snow, the furnace came on Many times, it is still cycling. Normally our furnace doesn't come on until after 8pm, but it triggered at 7pm because it was really cold, inside.

    More snow is forecast. I'm not going outside...

    I'd love to throw a snowball at you, but my arm isnt that strong.

    Anytime you want to visit to play in the snow, you are more than welcome.

    We're up to 4 inches of snow, or "global warming" as it is called by those who want to keep us afraid...

    We have been right at the snow line on this storm. It rains, then it snows, then it rains some more.

    It looks like California is out of air to send our way, I hope they have enough left to breathe... Minor rain sprinkles now, but it is too warm for snow...
    I don't trust the weather forecast beyond one or two days, it changes too quickly to be useful for planning.

    The weather prediction business...
    Yesterday evening, it was "partly cloudy" for the next 10-12 days...
    I get up this morning and the prediction is for "snow" for the next three days...
    Ask me again in six hours.
    I'll only believe it when I see it.

    Is it true that it will rain if you plan a picnic? What happens if you invite the weatherman to the picnic? This is Nevada, land of Casinos, so what kind of odds are being offered on the weather prediction?
