Good morning

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Friday, January 24, 2014 - 08:41 am:

Top of the morning to you!

For once, the weatherlady nailed our forecast. Everyone in the tropics is singing "Ice Ice Baby" this morning as the roads are a mess, most of the schools are closed, and even my office closed (not like I was going in anyway). I look out the window and I see liquid rain falling at a temperature of 27 degrees; that can't be good!!!

Good morning, Steve and Capt.
Your weather doesn't sound nice, Capt. ~ temp here is minus 1 and there's more snow expected tonight and tomorrow.
Today is a sad day of remembrance ~ lost a longtime Boatnerd/e-mail friend a year ago today.
Miss you, Violet!

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Friday, January 24, 2014 - 09:37 am:

Not that cold here, Shirley, thank goodness.
None of the natives would be prepared for that.....

By Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio) on Friday, January 24, 2014 - 10:16 am:

I don't doubt it, Capt., we southerners don't behave well in the cold.;>

A forgotten anniversary of the "Big Snow" in 1938. Makes our 9 feet of snow look like a light dusting.

Hi. The Mackinac Bridge is closed because of adverse weather conditions, including low visibility. They are monitoring conditions at both ends of the bridge, as well as points along the bridge. Have a good weekend! Stay warm!

As seen on the north shore (Lake Ponchartrain, New Orleans metro area) today:


From the Times-Picayune, January 24, 2014, (7:18AM): "List of New Orleans, Northshore weather-related closures for Friday, Jan. 24" Quoted in part:


"Various schools and government offices, primarily on the Northshore, are closing due to the winter weather.

"Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in both directions, as of 8:20 a.m.

"I-55 is closed in both directions between I-10 (Laplace) and US 51B (Ponchatoula) due to icy conditions."

Marianne Y (Marianne) on Friday, January 24, 2014 - 08:33 pm:

US 2 was closed both directions for hours today because of a 20-car collision on blowing snow and icy roads.

By Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio) on Friday, January 24, 2014 - 09:55 pm:

LOL ~ that's funny, FRNash! ~ a little Cajun spelling there.;)
Marianne, I think a lot of that weather is heading down my way for tonight and tomorrow.

By Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio) on Friday, January 24, 2014 - 10:05 pm:

Like the moose and deer!:> Animals are always my favorites.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Saturday, January 25, 2014 - 10:49 am:

Dan's favorite, of course!

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Saturday, January 25, 2014 - 11:05 am:

Dan's for sure, but also Jon Hopper's of Calumet on a wintry night.

By kay Moore (Mskatie) on Saturday, January 25, 2014 - 12:14 pm:
