Just thought that a nice little reminder for all those that think the "south" is always sunny and warm.  Also, for those of you "basking" in the warmth of the southwest - enjoy it while you can.

These shots were taken at 7:45 this morning.

Bill

p.s.  it is now 9:15am and any snow on the street is gone, the sun is out with not a cloud in the Carolina blue sky.

Same here - was a  nice brisk evening  at 7PM. woke up to 1/4 inch of the white stuff - roads and most solid surfaces clear. Soon, very soon, it will be springtime in the SE, lovely - yet - soon my son will have gone from verbally poking / bragging about 80 degree winter days in central AZ to complaining about the hellish heat of the coming summer. 

Nice pics Bill.

Bill, looks nice. We are cutting our stay here in Arkansas short because snow is forecasted starting Tuesday night. Hope it doesn’t follow us to Texas!

One of the things we like about our home in western North Carolina is that we can experience the snow above and by 2:45 that same afternoon it is 50 degrees and all of that snow is gone.

That is, indeed, my kind of snow. Though, if I don't have to go anywhere, I  personally don't mind if it hangs on a few days.

I shoveled plenty if snow in Minnesota and Iowa. I never have to shovel the heat out if my Florida driveway. 😉

I would have included a picture from western ND, however the camera "OPERATOR" does not work well when temps are -20° real and -32° with the wind chill. 

Yes, right now the sun is out, sky's are a slight overcast, and a balmy +2°. 

We too look forward to the spring and the start of OTT camping season and all the wonderment it will bring.

In that weather, I don't blame you for not going out, if you don'thave to. My sister-in-law in Minnesota went to town a few days ago, to avoid having to go in with the arctic front you all are experiencing.  

Stay warm. Spring is just some weeks away. Hopefully.

We have had a very mild winter up to a few weeks ago.  little to no snow, and temps in the 25-45 range.  then winter arrived and you have all read about what it is doing east & south of ND.  A lot of people do not think much about the cold in ND, because that is a given... If we do not get a lot more snow or spring rains, then the (dryland farmers) up here will be hurting.  right now a number of them are down in AZ in their 2nd homes working on their golf games and evening out their "Farmer Tan's". 

So i only feel for those that winter over because they had to stay here and  take care of the "Beef".

To keep this comment "On Topic", when they start to head back up here to "Go to Work", we will be heading south, to "Start our Camping Season". 🤣

TV is in un🥶heated garage, that we need to remedy...  Sny Sd Up is hibernating in a heated😛 Quonset.

I have removed e-bike batts & the Garmin gps's just to be safe, and to begin 😀 to load 2021 routes.  TV & non-tv have block heaters plugged in.
