I hate you Kansas. I fucking loathe you for more reasons than just the snow... but the snow just topped it off.

I cannot wait to live in a state with proper seasons.

You'd miss it if you didn't live in an area with snow. I lived in South Georgia at one time where it never snows and remember running around without a shirt on sweating my ass off on Christmas Day. I would have killed for a snowstorm.

I always find it amusing that, no matter where people are from, they always think their state's weather is more unusual than anyone else's.

A snow storm immediately following a 70 degree day is a touch unusual.

Yeah, but Kansas is only one of about 20 states who are experiencing that from this storm. That's my point.

And I don't mean to call you out specifically - it's a common thing. I just find it interesting. Kind of like the saying "If you don't like the weather in ______, wait 15 minutes and it'll change." I've personally heard that phrase from people who live in probably 5 different states that are spread all across the country.

EDIT: Here's an interesting link about that phrase that includes cited references to the saying being used to describe:

New England
Washington, DC
New York
Cleveland
Chicago
Michigan
Wisconsin
Nebraska
Oklahoma

How much did you guys get down there? We maybe got an inch or so, it didn't even stick to the streets at all.

A friend of mine in KC posted on his facebook that they got 4". None down here yet, but I think most of if is supposed to stay northwest of us. They're calling for 1-3" total here once it starts snowing tonight. We're getting a ton of rain though.


EDIT: Part about five more inches by tomorrow was from a friend who lives somewhere else.

No? Thought so.

It snowed here in Albuquerque as well. Must be a good 2 inches. We can always use the precipitation.

Actually, that's not what he said. He said he wants to live in a state with proper seasons. The inference being, a place where the weather changes gradually from one season to the next.

Up here in New England, we occasionally get snow in March and April. We even had a Mother's Day snowstorm not too long ago. But, in general, the seasons ramp up and down smoothly. Even so, I think everyone deals with weird fluctuations; today it's going over 70 here, and three days from now on Tuesday it'll be rainy and mid-40s. :shrug:

People will make fun of you for saying that, but I was in the same boat in Tampa. After growing up with the four seasons, Tampa was "nine months of hot, and three months of really f**king hot". Every day was the same: highs in the 80s or 90s, sunny, high humidity, afternoon thunderstorm. Drove me frigging crazy.

There was ice on the roads in Wichita. They were on back roads but ice nonetheless.

Its a cruel joke from the Groundhog, he told us there would be more winter, and during the last month the weather has been very pleasant, now that its spring we see the first sign of winter for weeks. I say we form a party and go up to PA and tie the groundhog to a tree and take turns taking shots at him.

last August my wife and I were traveling in Wyoming the temp was 77 degrees when we pulled into a little roadside cafe for lunch. 30 mins. later we were back on the road and it had snowed about 2 inches. The road was steaming so bad we could barely see to drive Now that is crazy weather.

At 6:16 pm, it is still snowing on top of what fell last night, so 4 inches is a safe bet.

It is only spring according to the calendar here!

From wunderground.com


Record snowfall at the Kansas City International Airport...

A record daily snowfall of 7.3 inches was recorded at the Kansas
City International Airport on Saturday March 20th. The previous
record snowfall of 2.8 inches was set way back in 1892.

Holy shit... didn't snow here in St. Joe Saturday at all I don't believe.
