Snowing in Omaha with lots of wind. Not much accumulation though.

My Finest Kind Public Works Department will have my street plowed by 5 AM tomorrow. I'll need to move the pile they push along my driveway. By the looks of things that will be the worst - it should take me about 10 minutes. It doesn't matter when I do it because I'm going to freeze in any event. The winds blew between 37 and 54 MPH all day long. The best I can hope for tomorrow is 21 MPH.

Well, the Twin Cities had a blizzard this weekend, and it's been 30-35 years since we last had one in the metro area. So far I've run the snowblower five times, and I'm either going to have to do it again tonight and tomorrow morning before going to work, or say the hell with it, take tomorrow off, and clear everything one last time tomorrow. . . until Wednesday, when more snow is coming.

The city plow did a horrible job on my section of the street - we've got a little park splitting the street into two, and the plow went 'round the park and down the middle of the street, leaving a 10-foot wide gap between the plowed street and the curb. I called the public work chief and asked to have another plow dispatched to do it properly. The plow came and this time left me with a hundred and thirty foot long by five-foot wide by four foot tall mess of snow between the plowed section of street and the curb. I gave up and cleared it with my snowblower. But now it's snowing like hell again.

At this time of year, our average high is 59 degrees. Today's high is 27 degrees.

And my major backyard landscaping job that I was going to start next weekend is on hold indefinitely. I can't lay a patio before the ground thaws and dries. We've got sixteen inches of frost in the ground yet.

At this rate, this may very well end up being a year without a summer for us.

My Oregon coastal friend reports the same weather for the PNW. And her Friday morning coffee clatch is very dissatiffied although the Green Sa!mon remains superb.

I'm in my mid-thirties, and have lived the bulk of it in Northeastern Wisconsin. This weekend's blizzard is far and away the worst winter storm I have ever seen. Green Bay and surrounding areas have seen as much as 28-30 inches of snow, which the steady 30 mph winds (gusting to 50+ mph) are piling up into enormous drifts. The official total for Green Bay is 23 inches, which makes this the second largest snowfall in the city's history. The worst was a storm back in 1889 that dropped 29 inches.

I received a notice earlier this afternoon that the chief judge of Wisconsin's 8th Judicial District - which is composed of Waupaca, Outagamie, Brown, Kewaunee, Door, Oconto, and Marinette Counties - has ordered that all courts in the district are to be closed tomorrow, on account of the dangerous travel conditions. I've checked around with colleagues in the bar and court personnel; no one can recall such an order ever being issued before. I've made appearances when clients could not make it because of weather. I've had judges move hearings and close courts early in anticipation of bad weather. But this is something entirely different.

Not that I totally mind a snow day tomorrow. It'll just be a pain to have to reschedule my appearances.

More rain. Everything is saturated, so more mudslides now including houses. We've got one main road, and it is closed in several locations. Valleys are underwater. No water supply and electricity in a good part of the island. State of emergency declared.

I made it to a nearby store yesterday to get my wine & brie. Listened to tourists yelling at each other about whether to cut their vacations short. Ha, ha, good luck with getting to the airport and on an outgoing flight.

Most interesting thing today: a buffalo showed up at a beach. Who knew there was a buffalo here? :confused:

Given the weather in the northern plains, you could hardly blame them for trying out the Pacific.

Weather's been weird here in the Bay Area today. Hail and icy roads in the East Bay, thunderstorms here and there, pouring rain, gusty winds and bright sunshine.

And rainbows.

Power to my house was stable by morning. The roads near me were closed Sunday afternoon, but open this morning. Trashed with mud, debris and potholes, but useable.

I had water flowing just an inch below my door at one point, but thankfully the heavy rain eased up. Whew! Mostly I'm dealing with mold, so I'm lucky.

People north of me weren't lucky. The north and east coasts are severely damaged with a large area still flooded. Houses, roads, vehicles and utilities are gone. About 300 people have been evacuated from areas that are completely cut off. More will be picked up tomorrow morning.

There are no reports of deaths or serious injuries. Yet. Some of us aren't convinced, including county and state park rangers. Probably there were people camping/living in Kalalau Valley. Up mauka from the north shore there are Hawaiians seeking to live traditionally as well as homeless campers. I hope they are ok.

Hawaiian Homelands on the east coast were hard hit by flooding as well. I know there are homeless camps there. Hopefully, people packed up and moved to shelter in time.

All the beaches are closed, and all the tourists are pissed off. Rain continues.

Recovery is going to take a long time and a lot of money.

Today, ranched bison and their producers are found in each of the United States and Canadian provinces. There are even herds on Long Island, NY; Kodiak Island, AK; and the islands of Hawaii. The average herd size is less than 100 animals while the largest herds number over 3,000.

Altogether, there are approximately 350,000 animals in North America with some amount of bison DNA. Roughly 200,000 are located on private ranches, and the remaining 150,000 or so are managed on public lands. Yellowstone, however, is home to the only genetically intact, truly wild buffalo. These are the ancestors of the great herds that once roamed North America.

The truth is: Yellowstone National Park harbors America's last wild buffalo.
There are buffalo on Long Island!? :o

Not "ancestors". :roll: Descendants.

The really bad news for today -- apart from everything that Trump does -- is that ocean currents are believed to be weakening. This is probably because fresh meltwater is pouring into the north Atlantic where the engine that drives the circulation system is located. New data show a weakening of 15% since the middle of the 20th century. The implications forr western Europe's climate are of great concern.

The north shore flooding is getting a lot of attention, while close to where I live, there are only 2 photos. 2. Here's one of them.

Here's your buffalo picture for today! Yeah, I know that it's technically a bison, but I don't care! A now free roaming BUFFALO gave birth yesterday. I named her Stormy. :)
