Another winter storm. Think that's three in as many weeks. To top it off, tomorrow through Thursday the highs won't get above 0, with Wednesday's high supposed to be -15 lol. Took the day off mainly because I can't get out of my lot. I was able to get through the row of garages following tire tracks, but then the lot meets up with a drive through so with all the traffic, turn, and slight up hill I couldn't get any further. Just parked it in a stall that someone was parked in last night so at least that is clear. They still haven't plowed now at 4PM.

And I'm here complaining that it's been in the mid to upper 70's for over a week because I want it to be much colder, even though it's So Cal we should still get some kind of winter damn it! lol. Good luck!

They ended up plowing after my post... sort of. They had some lawnmower with a snowblower on it and did all the edges and tight spots, but left the main driving areas in snow lol. I was at least able to back my car out of where I had parked it and got it in the garage. They are just now back with a truck to finish plowing. I don't think we had more than 4-5inches from this so not sure what the hold up was.

Yep some flooding here in southwest WI as well. One town a coworker lives in is under water. It's flooded before but they are saying this is the worst it has been in a long time. We really didn't get much rain around here either, but had pretty good snowpack at the end of the season and then it warmed up in a hurry.

Mississippi is currently just over a foot above flood stage here and forecast to rise another foot at least.

Interstate 95 north of Jacksonville is now closed. The fire jumped across the highway from blowing embers and started burning the other side, though that was anticipated and contained.

I'm delivering to Jacksonville and I'm supposed to drop my trailer and get a preloaded trailer in Savannah, GA so this could mess with my trip.

Not a damn clue this was happening.

I can't say that it's not being covered because I haven't been watching the news but this isn't popping up on the front page of any news site, it's almost always something about Trump.
