    Winter Weather Potential - January 20-27

    I do the same thing! I say "My weather sources..." Remember our local weather lady - Dagmar? I can't remember her last name. My husband always says "OK, Dagmar."

    Winter Weather Potential - January 20-27

    I'm just reading along and enjoying the anticipation. And as I said before, I figure this is the year to not run out of favorite snacks or hot chocolate! It might be fun to have a thread about "what do YOU like to have on hand for winter weather situations?" I'll bet we could come up with a pretty good list!

    Winter Weather Potential - January 20-27

    I think it is fun that so many teachers are on here! Thank you to all of you! We were talking the other day about the excitement and nervousness that fly through a school when winter weather threatens. The staff feels it; the kids feel it. There is an adrenaline rush, for sure. Just last year, we had snow show up around lunchtime. It wasn't supposed to be anything, but I looked out my window and saw it start to stick on the roads. (Is the term "evaporative cooling" correct here?) I texted my kids that I was coming to check them out. I could see the writing on the wall. I texted my husband, too, since he has a commute. When I headed out my driveway, the mini-van pretty much went sledding down the hill -- that was scary, but thankfully, I didn't end up in the yard across the street. It was getting dicey on the neighborhood roads. When I got to the school, you could SMELL the excitement in the air. I was glad I went when I did, because the short drive home was scary - but thrilling. We barely made it back up our driveway.

    Wx South just had an exciting post on Facebook. Just his thoughts that this does, indeed, have the potential to be a memorable winter!

    OK -- I found your reply! Thank you! My husband says he was living in Atlanta/Vinings and a Krispy Kreme truck got stuck right by his apartment complex. The driver just opened the doors and let people walk down and get donuts! December 2017, we got 8 inches on the 8th. That was so cool - it seems unlikely that we could have something like that again so soon. But it would be exciting!!!!!!

    I tried to ask this question earlier, but now going back, I can't find it. So I may not have hit the submit button. Please excuse me if I'm duplicating my own post! I was wondering about The Blizzard of '93. I moved here in the summer of that year, and people kept telling me about how incredible it was. I think it was in March, maybe? I'm wondering what kind of a winter set up that had - and are we heading into anything that might be similar?

    I moved to GA in the summer of '93. I keep hearing about the Blizzard of '93. In March, I think? I just missed it! What were the conditions leading up to that big one? I'm sure the stories have been exaggerated, but it sounds like it was pretty exciting.

    Over Christmas, we watched A Year Without a Santa Claus. With all this weather excitement going on, I can't help but think Snow Miser and Heat Miser are battling it out for snow in Southtown! (Maybe Mother Nature will intervene on our behalf!).

    I don't know why that quote option popped up again. I think it's the internet equivalent of a butt dial.

    I was thinking the same thing!

    I'm going to try to NOT get excited, since that seems to jinx it away! It's just fun to have something to watch!

    I'm not thinking I will get anything where I am this time around. As someone else said, it just doesn't "feel right." Last year's 8 inches of snow was an exciting pre-Christmas surprise, but highly unusual! I'm waiting (in dread) for the next true ice storm, where freezing rain puts a layer of ice on all the trees and power lines. That hasn't happened (in my city) since 1999, and it was ugly. (It might have been January 2000.) Power was out for 4 days. I will welcome some sparkly snowflakes - but not an ice storm. It's been a while for here, so I wonder when the next one will happen. I'm more than happy to skip that entirely!

    This is the time of year when I like to stay on top of my snack foods, coffee, and other snow day supplies. It's kind of fun to make a bread and milk run - just to people-watch - but not if you really HAVE to. I have a friend who doesn't ever shop until she is totally out of everything. Not me. I like to be prepared.

    So is this the kind of situation that would mean possible flurries and a few pretty flakes in the N. Georgia mountains? (And nothing in the metro?). Or with the borderline temperatures and expected rain -- is it the sort of thing where the cold could come in at the right time to make freezing rain? In other words -- is this just a little something fun to watch - or something that could become ugly ice?

    Weather on This Date - December 29

    Are we still on track with the predicted patterns for this winter? It seems to me this warm stuff was expected and I am thrilled that the forecast looks good for my family to travel. Are we seeing any indicators of a flip to the more wintery conditions down the road?
