Yeah I'm ready for winter to be behind us. For real. Bring on Spring. Then maybe someone can create the topic "Spring Weather
is Coming," or, "Spring Storms are brewing." Haha... either way, I'd be smiling.
I can change the name when it comes.

Not natural weather, but earlier this morning there was a huge fire at a metal scrapping place and car junkyard decently far away from here. However, the fumes from it carried all over the Twin Cities area and so throughout the whole day it smelled like burning plastic and wires everywhere you went. It's been almost 24 hours since it happened and it still is noticeable but it has improved a bit.

Yes there were two fires on separate abandoned barns here towards the beginning of the year. And the ruins are still there. ::)

Storm Dennis is devastating large parts of the UK, some areas could see a month's worth of rain in 24 hours  :o

Fortunately we are ok here, others aren't so lucky, I can't imagine what it must be like to lose everything  :'(

Oh wow! We had the same thing two weeks ago, a month's worth of rain in one day. As expected, we had some nasty flooding and a lot of impassible roads. Must be some type of jet stream action that's bringing all this heavy rain to the eastern USA and the British isles. Hope y'all stay safe  :)

We had a little snow today. Started out as rain this morning and then the temperature dropped to about 35F in the afternoon and we had some wet snow. Nothing really stuck, but it was still pretty to watch. The temperature's going to drop to a cold 25F tonight, which will cause some black ice tomorrow. Even with 4WD, ice can make any car lose control. That often happens where I live, with temps. dropping well below freezing after some mixed wintery precipitation and causing an icy, dangerous mess the next day.

wow that little storm that moved through here last week, leaving a few inches of snow certainly has grown & strengthened :o

Looks a bit like a hurricane on the satellite images..

 4WD will help you get moving but does little or NOTHING to help you turn or stop ! :lol:
