Not A Snow Storm, 09 Was A Snow Storm

The snow that dropped on us last night was not nearly wet enough to create a snow ball or a snow man for that matter.  But it does look pretty and hasn’t created terrible conditions, as far as I can tell.

I did enjoy the fact that I only had to brush the snow off my windows this morning, instead of scraping and chipping at 1″ of ice like last January.  That’s right, remember the January 09 snow storm?  This wasn’t a storm, this was a light dusting of sprinkly goodness.

Hard to believe that the storm moving through last night was supposed to surpass the nastiness we had in December of 04, at least here in Evansville.  Perhaps we should be thanking our lucky stars we aren’t further north.  Now it’s time to just hunker down and prepare for the bitter cold. brrrr

Storms Rockin Evansville, again

I woke up this morning to the sound of thunder and the flash of lightning.  It seems like every other day is a storm here and not just a happy go lucky storm, but one that drops 5-10″ of rain at a time.  Most of the storms last week went north of us, so I truly feel sorry for those who are experiencing the flooding right now.

However, my house is located on the South East side, so I’m not immune to flooding either.  Whenever these storms start rolling in I get anxiety for fear this this will be another gusher that brings in the wet stuff, flooding my living room.  Hopefully the storms today will pass north again or at least be mild with the rain they bring.  According to Weather.com we only have a 50% chance of rain tonight(fingers crossed).

Doesn’t seem to anyone else like we haven’t had just a rain in 08?  Instead of receiving the occasional shower, all we get are severe thunder storms, nothing in between.  Oh well, soon enough we will be into a drought, just like last summer, until fall hits.
