The grass was almost white, more white than green. Apx 10 miles away at least 1" on the ground and 15-20 miles 3-6" on the ground.
To the North Wof us in Morgantown WV or N in Uniontown Pa nope no snow anywhere.
We had a little snow over the weekend, but it was all melted by Christmas Eve morning.
Christmas morning, it was snowing big white flakes while we were walking, but by 10am, it had stopped and nothing stayed as the ground is too warm.
Last year on Christmas, I was plowing walking paths for the K9 kids as pictured below. Since I was plowing across the lawn in the photo, I leave the plow up about 6" just so walking out to the bird feeders, etc is easier and not through snow nearly 2 feet deep.
In fact, last year I started plowing on December 12th and plowed nearly everyday for the remainder of the month. I had 16 plow billings in December of 2017. Not this year...........Just 2 plowing events so far.
The weather forecast is calling for almost 50 degrees in a few days, which is real trouble for the fruit trees and grape farmers, etc. If that happens more than once or twice, especially in consecutive days, the fruit trees and grapes will start to grow buds and when it turns cold and snows, it wipes out the crop for this coming season and can even kill the trees or vines.
With our winters of late, sometimes I feel I might be wasting my time putting the chains and plow on my tractor! Right now, the only work I have to do is all the branches that are on the ground from the rainy, icy weather from earlier in the month. I'd love it, if we have a mild winter this time around!
Wishful thinking because there is probably at least one big snow in the near future for us!
Snow in the higher mountains all around me but none at my elevation. 30 * this morning and clear so I may try out my new Taylormade M-2 3 hybrid Santa brought me when the temp gets above freezing!:yahoo:
No ice chest required this time of year!:good2:
We arrived Sunday at our daughter and 2 grandchildren's house in Oswego County NY, just north of Syracuse. They're on the eastern shore of Lake Ontario and get lake effect snows. Snow started late evening Sunday and it snowed all day Monday (Christmas eve), sticky snow mixed with a little ice and all the trees had a fluffy coating that lasted all Christmas day. Total about 5-6 inches. Here's a shot from their kitchen window with the sun coming up behind the nearest trees.
Picture really didn't do justice to the actual scene.
Good morning all...
Just about done with my first cup of coffee what a busy day yesterday was. Amongst everything else going on getting ready for my daughters new horse I took a couple of hours to make a stall door grill for a real good friend of ours.
Nice morning here and way too much stuff...

Welcome to the January 2020 weather thread!
The first full moon of the decade this month is on the 10th.
The full Moon for January was called the Full Wolf Moon because wolves were more often heard at this time. It was traditionally thought that they howled due to hunger, but there is no...
Well, I thought someone else was going to start this thread, but either he didn't, :nunu: or I didn't find it. :crazy:
Here is my last bovine. I was going to name him T-bone, but then had sirloin, and hamburger too. Trouble is, I couldn't remember which one I named what, so his name is...
