It feels like winter again

Home weather station reported a low of 27.6°F this morning. That's how winter is supposed to be in NC. There were some sporadic reports of flurries and snow showers yesterday, but I did not see anything here at work. :( It's already more quiet on campus right now (reading/study day before the first day of exams Friday). I'm definitely looking forward to some quiet time here in campus for a change.

I know so many of my LJ friends are suffering with the snow up north. I so wish we could have some of that down here. Durham is technically down to about 50 days of water. Water status is now at the "severe mandatory water restrictions" level. Storm after storm keeps coming through, but with little or no moisture to work with.

I hope the snow which has fallen in my area recently helps with our water situation. Heavy rains are nice but the water just runs off quickly; hopefully, the snow will melt gradually enough to supplement the water table.

If you like, I'd be happy to arrange shipping some of our snow south to you. :-)

Mostly we've been getting the cold but not the snow. My parents in PA got about a foot with this past weekend's storm, though (they live in the "mountains" of PA, though).

We don't usually get amazing amounts of snow up here. The six inches of slush-falling-from-the-sky followed by freezing rain from last weekend was a little rough.

Here's to hoping for a nice long soak for you guys. Given the expansion ratio of snow to rain, I won't wish a blizzard on ya. Nothing wrong with a couple days str8 of miserable rain showers. Off and on of course.

Precipitation of any type would be welcome here.

Greetings new friend... :)
I honestly didn't think of NC as a cold/snow place... but now I know.
I'm also longing for some more snow here... the ski resorts are making snow though, so that's cool... looking forward to getting out there soon for the first time this season.

Normal low on this day at RDU is 34°F, so it was even colder than normal. Oh, yeah, by next week? Mid 70's. Crazy.

We had 11. Yes, 11. I was nauseated. Then I sat on the nice cool leather of my seat and my butt hole shrank up so much you probably couldn't have gotten a jelly bean thru it. I have a love/hate relationship with my leather seats.

I have vinyl, but it's a textured vinyl (BMW calls it Leatherette--whatever). Heated seats are such a good thing. :)

Sounds like your seats on a cold morning would be just the thing you would need it had diarrhea, huh? Just sayin'...

The seats in my car are heated, the seats in our truck are not. Since it's 4WD, I've been driving it and for some reason it gets warm faster. I'm going to check the amount of coolant in my car, or have it checked this week.

I'm less likely to throw a fit if someone slides into me and wrecks the truck...or vice versa. I like it, but I LOVE my car. :-)
