We haven't gotten any thunderstorms here lately.

But yep, for those of you who don't live here, that's Iowa for you-people say, "Don't like the weather? Wait 5 minutes, it'll change".

March and April can be really bizarre months if you live here. Like in April of 2001, when I was going on my school trip to New York City-I left Monday morning, and it was COLD and there was snow and all that. I come back Friday evening, and there was a tornado warning for an area just off to the southeast of where I live.

Very weird.

As for the snow, I'm really hoping and praying we'll get some of it.

And that's my big reason for wanting snow-okay, this winter here has been pathetic snow-wise...we have not had ONE snow day at all this winter. I just want one snow day. Just one. I want to wake up tomorrow morning and hear that school has been cancelled due to the snow (and it'll be nice for me because seniors at my school do not have to make up the snow days, while the freshmen through juniors do).

Khanada, you're getting off easy in Tennessee-you've got a severe thunderstorm watch. South of where you live, they're getting hammered in Mississippi with tornado warnings and all that (yeah, I've been watching the Weather Channel off and on all day).

Another weird thing-on Friday, when my family was coming back from Missouri, it was in the 70s in the area where we were, and as we drove farther north, it got colder, and then by the time we came through Iowa, we were driving in towns that had snow on the ground. I left wearing a T-shirt and by the time I got home, I had a sweatshirt AND a warm coat on over my T-shirt because it was cold. No wonder part of Missouri had a tornado watch-all that cold air slamming into the warm air down there-yeah, that's grounds for trouble (luckily, we left before we experienced any of the severe weather).

Weather can be so funny.

Everyone on the East coast knows not to really expect spring until May. But here, we don't have spring. We jump from 30 degrees to 90. Boom--it's summer.

I can't see out my window.
I think I should protest classes until it's spring since they won't cancel here unless it's due to the rapture.

i dunno about you but this east coast person expects spring to start when it's supposed to start... we're not used to these cold harsh never ending winters in new york... i'm not liking it.

Normal

We had a pretty bad ice storm here over the weekend. We were off and on with the power. I think it was out here for a total of 32 hours over 3 days. Some people in the area are still without. A LOT of tree damage. Pretty depressing really. Luckily no one has been seriously hurt that I've heard of. But yeah, now we're expecting 2-4 inches of snow today. Gotta love April in western New York!

I'm sitting here on my comp in NY, looking out the window, watching it snow, and I just realized- we've had snow for 6 months now. That's ridiculous. A year ago it was a 20 -30 degrees warmer
