Has anyone seen the first flake at their house?

All of the Atlanta streets were salted and schools closed. I dont think temps were ever forecast to be below freezing prior to dusk.

    Nothing in Zebulon. But our schools didn’t close. They probably will close for tomorrow though due to the ice.

    In MN, we are closed through Wednesday. The windchill is expected to hit -50. They can't have kids at the bus stop, exposure for 5 minutes results in frostbite. Stay safe with the ice dawg fans.

    We are simply not prepared for global warming.

    School closed in Toledo Ohio today as well. Supposed to be 15 below with wind-chill near 40 below today into tomorrow. Glad I'm in Las Vegas right now.

    Living up here in the NE Georgia Mountains, I went to bed last night under a Winter Storm Warning with up to 3 inches of snow expected. I woke up this morning to a Winter Weather Advisory with up to an inch of snow....possible. It snowed for about 45 minutes at 37 degrees. Melted as soon as hit..... So much for enjoying a snow day with a fire and a hot toddy, well I'm still going to do a fire and have a cocktail. Snow or no snow....

    If you put much faith in weather folks, it could drive you to drink, alot.

    Nothing crazy yet here in middle TN. Wish it would. Snow work pays good money.

    Supposed to be 33F tomorrow for our Wed AM workout. Had to cancel it and reschedule it - not used to this in Gainesville, FL or G2 as I call it.

    Was suppose to get 3 inches in my area. We ended up with 1/2 to 1 inch. Still have a dusting but only in shaded areas.

    Why are meteorologists not held accountable? Laughing at the predictions

    It’s not my field of expertise so I don’t have a say. I realize that due to their predictions that events occurred as far a school closings etc and no accountability

    Never believe when they say it’s gonna. Be prepared when they don’t.
