Global Warming: The view from my porch

In a word, burr.

snow 009snow 010  snow 001

Not the first snow in March I've seen here but this is the second snowiest winter The weatherpeople had predicted this storm to arrive on Thursday. Didn't happen. We got a light dusting on Saturday morning that melted quickly followed by flurries all day, nothing much Sunday, but it's coming down good today.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN SEATTLE HAS ISSUED A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR SNOW... WHICH IS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM PDT THIS EVENING.

SNOW SHOWERS WILL INCREASE LATER THIS MORNING AS A PUGET SOUND CONVERGENCE ZONE DEVELOPS NEAR EVERETT LATE THIS MORNING AND THEN SINKS SOUTH TOWARD SEATTLE THIS AFTERNOON. 1 TO 3 INCHES OF SNOW ACCUMULATION CAN BE EXPECTED. DUE TO THE SHOWERY NATURE OF THE SNOW... A FEW LOCATIONS COULD GET EVEN MORE SNOW... WHILE A FEW OTHER LOCATIONS GET LITTLE OR NOTHING AT ALL.

I had a post last week thanking Al for the warning about global warming.

We had temps in the sixties & seventies all week, then on the weekend we had 3 inches of snow.

The only thing about Alabama I don't like is lack of snow in the winter most years.

Come on over & check out the photo of my kid & her dog in the snow in Alabama.

Thanks for the photos. I lived at Ft. Lewis when I was in 1st & 2nd grade. It was eons ago, but I do remember it being very beautiful there, & I especially remember seeing Puget Sound,(sp?)& Mt. Ranier.

God bless America!
