.... up there likes us! Happy

It totally missed us by a very few miles,though it dumped on the "bedroom" communities in surrounding counties.

I saw that Dallas got snow. That was not uncommon in the time we lived there.

Did Houston get a bit?

Thanks for asking!

Wonder how Bill to my west is doing, here we only got couple of inches

The ground was wet when it changed over to sleet and then snow, so a lot melted on the ground.

But it was probably much heavier in the middle and western part of the state.

We're facing a possibility of more Wednesday it seems. A cold rain (40 maybe) Tuesday then possible snow Wednesday.

OK, when is the ides of March going to get here?

Hi Roger:

When does it typically start to warm up in NC? In NJ it's pretty much right as spring arrives, end of March or so, though last year we got snow the first week in April, which happens from time to time.

In an average winter, how much snow do you think you get?

Re:Re:(NT)Ok, but how long will it SEEM to be (chuckling while teeth chatter)

Don't forget, I'm in the east, about 2 hours drive from the coast. And until recently I was a bit further south, near Greenville NC formerly.

Ok, about the first of March for warming trend. It can be in the seventy's then. But the largest snow in my life started on March 1, 1980.

Normally only a couple of dustings and one real snow event a season in the east. But it seems (perhaps impression only) to becoming more. In the last six years since I moved, here at least we've had a couple of inches or more twice or more every year. And other days, normally only 24 hours to 48 hours, of sleet, freezing rain, snow/rain mix. Most stuff melts around here in only 2 to 3 days. Occasionally it may last a week.

But there are two often referred to dividing hiways for weather reference. One, west of Interstate 95 is much more snow and ice. Two, in the east, west of highway US 17 normally has more than east.

Now some of our largest snows are opposite, actually move up the coast as Gulf moist air rides up over existing cold air mass.

Raleigh has a lot more than we do in the east. Probably Bill could give you a much better idea.

Thanks Roger, appreciate the info. I just got off the phone with a headhunter down there and she said this has been a particularly brutal winter, and is not typical of what the RDU area gets. Same up here. The snowfall has been just a hair above average but the consistently cold temperatures have been especially bad this year. It sucks when you have a baby and you can't take her outside to play for months. It's one reason we're considering the move to NC.

Hi, Angeline.

Glad it missed you! No, nothing in Houston, and certainly not Galveston. We havn't had a hard freeze in almost a decade now -- which isn't great for control of termites, mosquitos, fleas, etc.
