Glad to see you're still standing Matt.

We have what you guys had, right now.  92 mph gusts were reported at the airport down in the city.  The valley where my gf lives got a huge gust, but fortunately we didn't even lose power at her place or mine, so we're lucky.  I'm listening to the police scanner all night...  There's like a dozen fires going right now just in my scanning area, and there's lines/trees down all over.  Some counties got possible tornado warnings/watches and they were telling some folks earlier in the evening in one area to get to safe parts of their houses.  Dunno if anything happened though or not. 

That gust that hit near my gf's place though, had me battening down the hatches.  It shook the house and the chandalier was swaying from it.  That was kind of shocking.

Me too!  Glad I'm okay, glad you're okay.

Yesterday was the closest I've come to having to take "emergency precautions," as they say, in many, many, many years.  Hope it's not a sign of things to come.

We usually dont' get tornadoes here due to the hills.  Once they get out of Ohio/WV they usually are broken up, but the wind does a number around here pretty often.  Up North closer to Erie and things can get the twisters though because it's noticeably flatter...  They get all the really ****** weather up that way it seems.

It's freakishly warm here today...  I think it was 65 or something.  I drove with the top down this afternoon even.  It was kinda creepy almost because it really felt like the proverbial "calm before the storm".  Crazy weather.

Rumor is that we are getting hit with anywhere from 3-4 to 8-10 inches of snow here. First they said it would hit on Wednesday night, then it was that it would hit during/just after morning rush hour. Here it is nearly noon and nothing.

They were having a really hilarious conversation about that one morning on "Mike and Mike in the Morning" on ESPN.

We received about four inches of snow a couple of days ago.  But it got cold and shorted out any more falling.  Supposed to have received another bit last night, but it was too cold really, so mostly the wind just blew around what had already fallen.  Too cold, too cold.

Texas sounds good about right now.  Felt like a summer vacation when I visited last year around this time.  Stoopid snow and stoopid Canada.   >:(

I'm just giving ya **** Brent   :)  Texas was an amazing relief from this cold ass crap last year.  Padre Island = nice.   Hard to believe it can be so cold in some spots and how warm in the others.  Mexico was nice too - until I came back to all this snow.   :-\

Last week we had a few days in the upper 60s/low 70s.  Trees and flowers are started to pop here.  Then it rained all weekend and prompted flood warnings in our area.  Last night everything changed over to snow and we woke up to 6 inches of snow with a layer of ice underneath.  By Friday we're supposed be back up to 70 again.

We received a bunch of snow over the weekend, but now it's frickin' raining.  What an awful slippery mess.

It was cold here last week, hitting around the -30°C mark & with a wind, much colder plus we had a few days of frickin' snow. Nice now thus far, going up to -6°C today with the odd flurrie then ice pellets tonight followed by some more flurries. Ice pellets! Oh that's just ******* great!  ::)

It is sunny and calm and is supposed to be in the high 60s all week, and we might get as high as 70. We've had a few weeks where it was cold as **** here but for the most part it hasn't really felt like winter at all. We have hardly had any real snow around these parts. It looks like we may be headed towards another drought this summer 'round here. :-\

Must be nice in the middle of Winter in Colorado to have the temps be near 70.  >:(
