    To our American friends

    With huge hailstones in Florida and hurricanes in Alabama and Mississippi how is the untypical weather affecting you in the States? Are you OK?

    Thanks for asking! For the current low pressure system sweeping us, there are little choices remaining for where to pile the snow. Unfortunately, that is a trivial concern compared to those folks in the states you mentioned, where the outer bands of this massive low atmospheric pressure system have been and are, deadly, tragic and destructive.

    Atlanta, GA proper lucked out weather wise for the most part... it was south of the city that got hit hard and had a few deaths from the same storm that did the damage and collapsed the HS roof in Alabama.

    Thanks for asking... it sure has been wild and wooly with the weather lately.

    Yeah - we here in Florida have mercifully been spared a major hurricane since 2005, but then there was the batch of tornadoes just a few weeks ago that caused so much devastation (and injury and death).

    Boston is getting swamped with inches of hard rain today. An hour north of here it is cold enough to snow, so they are getting pounded today.

    St. Louis is in a unique spot - the jet stream pretty much passes right over us, and moves 50 miles or so north and south. When it is south of us, we get Canadian cold, and when it is north of us, we get Gulf heat. I went to work yesterday and it was in the mid seventies...when I went home it was in the low thirties.

    The storms yesterday were not too bad for us, comparatively. Last July we had hundreds of thousands without power for weeks.

    There is nothing in the world like a good Midwestern US thunderstorm. People who live on the coasts who happen to get caught in one think the world is ending. We had to pull KC (of KC and the Sunshine Band) out from under a table during one a few years ago. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Hey, hype it up, Jason. We had an overpass collapse in the moderate wind.

    Don't forget the 50-60 mph winds Corey!

    Made walking from South Station to the office more like taking a bath (especially when a truck went by hitting one of the puddles [img]/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img])

    Snow again in the Rocky Mountain foothills.

    Had a 40 car pile up just a couple of days ago due to icy, snowy, windy conditions. Really laughed on my way home to hear the next DJ on shift complain that people were driving like "drunken monkeys on acid!" Too right.

    Today it's a gentle steady light dry snow that's practially done. The wind will blow it off of the windshield.

    And it's Friday. yea.
