Crazy to think that just a week ago we were in the 70's all week! This turned out to be quite the ice storm to say the least. Ice accretion is around .5-.75" and trees are breaking like match sticks.

Came to West Virginia last week and have been here since. I’ve been lucky to have a lot of time off with Covid. It’s easily the most beautiful place I’ve ever been. Too bad the storm wiped most of the

Sounds yummy. 46 degrees, but a north wind has a bite to it. My mother in law made turkey and ham with mashed potatoes and gravy. My wife made her famous green bean casserole and my daughter made the stuffing. Pumpkin pie filled in the spaces as my late mother used to say.

My daughter and I took advantage of the great weather today and put Christmas lights on the house.  I am getting old so I was happy to have the help.  Mother nature may add to the seen soon if the Euro and CMC are correct.

I love seeing the holiday lights dressed over your town...there's something that I enjoying seeing from a small town in rural America...I'd like to see this same shot by the time Christmas/New Year's rolls around this year when there is snow OTG!

The cold core ULL that tracked overhead yesterday produced one of the coldest day time high temps in PHX of the season (66F).  It was a great day to spend some time in the jacuzzi and enjoy some vitamin D.  Prob do the same thing again today and enjoy some R&R.  BTW, we do have the furnace on here as it does get cold enough at night to flip it on.  It's odd to think that not long ago I was posting on here about record heat over and over and over!

The overnight low here at my house was 24 it looks like the official low at GRR was 27. The next system looks to miss west Michigan to the east. So while we stay mostly snow free areas to our east could see a few inches of snow fall from this system. At this time it is clear and 25 here. With 3 more days to go the mean at Grand Rapids for this November is now at 45. That is a departure of +4.3° At this time Grand Rapids is on track to have its 5th warmest November of record. So far only 0.4" of snow has fallen
