I suspect that it is "Good White Substance" surrounding Good Troy's waterfront abode. At least it's good when it's not getting inside your shoes.

Snowed yesterday, just enough to be annoying. This morning it's colder than a well digger's patoot out there. Not really looking forwards to being out in it, but duty calls. Hopefully it'll be a short day Roll Eyes Tongue

Morning all.

Today's forecast: doom and destruction, or something like that.  Supposed to warm up to 35-40, and rain for the next week.  People are losing their minds.  Couldn't say why, though.  We always get a week or two of rain in winter, it just comes with the territory. 

Finishing breakfast right now, then going to go "grind some nose on the stone," to quote my uncle.

Yesterday I had to go to the city.  Why do crazy people have to congregate at Costco?

Ended up with about 3 ½  inches of  stiff with stuff yesterday morning.  All set to get out the stiff white stuff blower, only discover after 3 years of no use, it wouldn’t start!  Luckily it wasn’t getting about freezing, so it stayed light and fluffy and easy to shovel.

The streets weren’t in too good a shape, so we postponed the birthday diner until tonight.

More snow tomorrow, turning to rain on Sunday.  The Truckee River is looking at possible flooding in downtown Reno.

Just more cold here today. had to clear all the walks around the barn this morning. Stuff wasn't wet, so it basically pushed off. Finished touching up the sand paint on the floor of the restrooms from the replacement of the johns(3).

Had a Stouffer's lasagna tonight for dinner, along with some three cheese Texas toast. Not bad for store bought Roll Eyes

I've been to Reno 9 times, and 8 of them were raining.   Roll Eyes  I'll be going again in March, then moving there in August/September (Lord willing and the Truckee don't rise too much) .  Hopefully it doesn't rain the whole time I'm there. Tongue

Today's forecast turned out wrong.  It stayed around 33 and mildly overcast/sunny.  Just warm enough to melt a little ice and make it all slippery.  No rain yet,  but we'll see tomorrow.

Coffee and water are hot!

No sn*w yet, but still predicting 1-3”.  Rain is supposed to be 2.75” on Sunday, then back to the white stuff on Monday for another 3-5”.

Made it out to dinner last night, and the main roads were clear and dry, but the side streets are still packed down and a bit slick.

Kid, you should have come over more often, we could have used more rain over the last couple years.  It looks like this one set of storms could pull us out of our three year drought.

Morning/afternoon all.

That big scary rain storm never materialized.  Instead we ended up with an inch of white stuff...and a bunch of people in the ditch. 

Russ, maybe we should switch places.  I'll solve your drought if you solve mine.  My part of California has been in a pretty decent drought for ten years.  Shocked  Our lake hasn't been past 60% full since 2006-7, which is interesting because it's second or third largest reservoir in the state.

When I moved here in ’92 you could walk across the Truckee on the large rocks in the river bed, and not get your feet wet.  New Years 1997, I was filling sand bags and trying to keep the water out of the Nevada Bell cable vaults on 1st street downtown (that’s one block from the river).  The water was up to top of the parking meters outside the building.  Then nothing but below normal precip. until 2005 (luckily I was retired by the, so no sand bagging).  Again no major precip. until now.  This one is expected to possibly be worse than 1955 (the flood of floods around here).  They have already closed the Washoe County schools for Monday.  We shall see!  Still no sn*w, and very little rain.

Every one of those years mirrors us exactly. Shocked  Though, the 1955 was a little before my time. Roll Eyes  '95 too, technically...

Light rain today, most of the day.  still white stuff around, though we may not be traveling to the city tomorrow for church if the precip continues.  Don't want to get stuck down there the day before school starts.

Supposed to get above freezing here today. Maybe our high will exceed M2s low temp. Probably won't get rid of all traces of the E.W.S., though.

Gun show yesterday, nothing much I couldn't resist. Bought some ammo, .380, 6.5 Carcano, 7.5 French. And- ta da! a box of .22-525 rounds, Remington, $35. Still seems too high to me, but the cheapest I have personally seen in years.

Morning all.

Gully washer hit last night.  Temperature decided to jump from freezing to about 40 around midnight.  That changed the white stuff falling to rain... 1 1/2 inches since midnight.  It's 8:30 right now Shocked

PE, count yourself lucky.  In my part of the world, my mom and grandma had to tag team it to get 300 rounds, and paid a grand total of $45.

No gully washers here, just a steady rainfall since about 2:00.  Suppose to keep this up all day and into the night, then turn to snow around 4:00 tomorrow morning.
