Dragon Laffs #1364 Snowpocalypse 2014–Indiana Version

Well, I’m starting this on Saturday…last Saturday, January 4th.  Depending on what happens over the next couple of days with this “significant winter weather event” will depend on when you guys will see this posting.  2b So the storm is still a bit away from us.  It’s currently about 1930 hrs.  Colts are behind by 6 and there is just a about 5 minutes left in the game.  Crazy night.  Crazy day. 

So, people of course have gone crazy, waiting for this storm.  Seems like everyone is going to be making French Toast over the next couple of days.  All the local grocery stores are out of bread, milk and eggs.  It’s amazing to me that every time it storms, people make French Toast.  Plus, I guess everyone is afraid of their pipes freezing, since the stores are also sold out of bottled water.  I can kind of understand that, since we are supposed to get wind chills that might be all the way down to -40° F and snow drifts that might be up to 6 to 8 feet tall.  I think it would be hilarious if it missed us completely.  Heck, I got an email this afternoon from work saying we would be closed on Monday and the storm hasn’t even started yet.

MediumThe Colts beat Kansas City in what I think is probably one of the best all time come backs in the play offs, EVER!  45-44. after being down 21 points at the half, they come back and hold KC to 2 field goals, out scoring them in the second half 28 to 6.  What an exciting game!  Okay, Denver is next!  We get them next week!

SUNDAY 5 January 2014

Good Morning….Afternooon….my friends.

Well, the snow got here.  I found a ruler, of sorts, and hobbled outside the garage where I could get it in the snow, take pictures of it and be protected by standing in the garage.  I’m sure I looked silly as hell to any of my neighbors who might have been looking out of their windows at the time.  This old cigar smoking dragon, dressed in blue jeans and bathrobe, hobbling out of the garage, sticking something in the ground, and then taking pictures of it.  And from now on, it will be every hour or so, the garage goes up, the dragon takes a picture, the garage door goes down.  Anyway, check this out:
3c 1230 hrs Sunday 5 Jan
That’s almost 10 inches of snow.  Okay, so to be honest, due to the placement of the ruler, it is piled on top of about 5 inches from the snow fall on Friday, but that’s an additional 5 inches piled on in the last couple of hours.  It’s coming down pretty hard as you can see by this:
3d

Or this picture of my neighbors car:

So yeah, it’s snowing quite a bit.  So bad in fact that an hour and a half later, the ruler looks like this:
3f

Yup, that sucker is just about covered!  That would be about 1.3 inches per hour!  That’s a lot of snow!3

Okay, going to send this out now.  More later.

Cheers my friends,

Impish

    I remember when I was a kid back in the 30s, we had snow up to my knees in Chicago.

    I live near enough St. Louis to watch their news, this morning one of the TV reporters was out in the snow measuring, he found 11″ on the ground outside the studio before 8 a.m, and it’s been snowing all day. I’m not going out to measure it, I just know it’s getting deep and 11° at 4 p.m. We’re forecast to get below zero tonight and have a high tomorrow of 0°. So much for global warming. Worst winter since 1999 already, and it’s only three weeks old.

    Let it snow…Let it snow…Let it snow…ANYPLACE but here!
    It’s already freaking cold enough here and we have a weather event warming that it will be a hard frost night with temps in the teens after 2 Am until almost 10 tomorrow!
