East Coast Weather Sucks!

This weather on the east coast sucks! I'm in the deep south and it is pouring and temps are in the upper 40s. I hate this. At least we are not going to have a freeze.

I know what you mean. Here in Naples a couple fluffy white clouds just started obscuring the sun a while ago. It is currently 82, but they say it may drop to the upper 60's tonight!

Thats not very nice of you Patrick! Here in Charlotte it is in the 30's with a cold, cold rain. A year ago we had THE ice storm. I'm thankful its nothing like that. I didn't have power for 2 days then.

I'm also thankful that on Saturday I'm headed to Vieques where it is nice and warm!!!

You need to spend one -- just one -- winter in Nebraska.

Not as bad here (Durham, NC) as Charlotte, but it is raining and cold and yucky. My boss took today off because she was concerned about the weather (?)

Patrick, do you have a spare room to rent?

Well, we have a winter storm warning in effect here in Maryland. Rain, sleet, freezing rain and snow all coming our way, with 2 to 4 inches of accumulation expected. Here comes another messy winter!

Ugh. Just watched the weather forcast on The Weather Channel and there is another winter storm expected to piggy back on this one.

No thanks about Nebraska. I'm going to South Florida tomorrow or Saturday.

No thank you, K_9 - Nebraska winters I would not want to try! I've already had my share of winters having lived in Minneapolis and Central PA.

I've actually been considering moving further south lately. Now that winter weather is here I'm thinking about it more and more. Before I moved to Charlotte several people told me that winters here were nothing and if we did get snow (which was supposedly rare) it was gone by noon. Now that may have been true my first year here, but in the past 4 it seems like it gets worse and worse! Has anyone else noticed that?

Sorry to hear about the sucky weather out east (and up north here in CA). Although the weather is actually kinda nice here in southern CA (daytime highs in the low 70s, nighttime lows in the upper 40s-low 50s-- good for cuddling!), a little rain would actually be appreciated (cleans the air, washes off the sidewalks). But not a lot of rain-- no one knows how to drive in the wet stuff, and those fires left a lot of hillsides ready to melt into mudslides. Hopefully a little shower or two may slide down from the Bay Area....

I'm done with Mother Nature.

Asheville, NC -- Currently 33 degrees, and the ground is covered with slush, because it snowed last night, then got covered with ice, and it's been raining ever since. Some rain and freezing rain is expected tonight, with snow by the weekend.

It's cold, slushy, rainy, and blah!

rjw, I think we're supposed to get a little rain on Sunday. I sooo sympathize about cold weather, here in San Diego today the high was 63 -according to my "Weatherbug". In two weeks I'll be off to really cold weather in London and Edinburgh, though!

49 with rain and high winds in the Seattle area. I think windstorms are actually kind of fun though.

63 degrees sounds darn good to me Barbara. I get very uncomfortable when temps hit the mid-70s, so I think that temps in the 60s are perfection. I understand where you're coming from though. We moved to Seattle from Charleston when I was a kid. It was 75 the day that we arrived and coming from 90+ degree South Carolina heat, that *was* cold.

My company owns a subsidiary in Alaska and when the employees there come down here in the winter months, they wear shorts outside when it's in the 30s.

It's funny how "hot" and "cold" are so relative.
