I was looking at some pictures I took of one of the winter storms from February 2010 and I kinda miss that sheer volume of snow.  Sure I hated it when it happened.  That winter in particular was harsher than most.  We just kept getting pounded.  Winter 2011 I don't remember and Winter 2012 was pretty mild (we got snow once, and it was a dusting of about 1 or 2 inches).

Today it's low 70s, real nice Spring weather.  Was driving with the top down earlier.

Two days ago...

...we had no-kidding, old-fashioned fog in Frisco for the first time in ages.

It was so nifty seeing the buildings on Market Street half-enshrouded again, and the cloud moving real fast above my head seeming close enough to touch it and eat it like cotton candy.

Gone now...it was there for just one day.  It seemed to try to be there yesterday but failed.

And now there may be a 2nd tropical system trying to form off the coast again?! :o

If it forms, it will be the 3rd time in recorded history (1887 and 1908) that 2 named storms formed before the official June 1 start of hurricane season!

... And the thought of 2005 hurricane season came to mind but instead of the gulf coast getting bombarded, could it be the east coasts turn?? :scared:

I kinda hope it's given a name from a historical perspective :o
Sundays forecast has already been updated to include the possibility of storms now.

We'll see what happens throughout the year 8)

I am sure living in Houston all will be well.  Er, right?

At least my neighborhood is linked to several major hospitals across the highway so we get our power back right away.

During the Ike storm a couple of years ago, I had several people each day come to my house to work as our office was still without power and so were most of them for a week.

We had nice lunch and some really weird and bad horror movies playing on the DVD player all day for background sounds.  Oh yes, Indian Dracula movies!

I live in the mountains of Virginia.  Which is a good area weatherwise, most of the time.  Hurricanes have weakened by the time they reach us, although I remember when Hugo hit South Carolina, that was pretty bad.  We've had one tornado in recent memory, and the whole town went into a panic.  And the last big blizzard was in 1993.  That was hell.  Spring break.  Interstates closed.  My mother worked for Social Services and had to help at the shelter, and of course I had to go with her.  No power in the shelter the first night.  Tons of kids on their way to Florida.

And  I'll never forget the army tank bringing in her boss from the country.

We drive down I-81 through Virginia on our way from Pennsylvania to North Carolina. I remember a couple of years ago we suddenly hit a section of lower Virginia where trees were all over the place, lying on the ground and twisted in ways I thought you could never twist a tree. And these were big motherfuckers, not some little trees. We're talking like trees that started growing when Columbus discovered America. Giant things that looked like a twisted and discarded straw.

It's no wonder everyone went into a panic. I probably would have, too.

I was in Charleston, SC when Hugo came ashore!
To this day, that was the most intensely awesome natural disaster event I have ever been through! :o

The one great thing about Kent country Delaware is that we never seem to get hit with things like that.  the most we ever seem to get is heavy rain or snow.  I don't think i could live somewhere that had huricains,tornadoes,or earthquakes after growing up here.  I have to say no matter where I end up in life I hope I am able to still live here so i don't have to put up with that stuff.
