And if you look at the 10-day and expand it by clicking Next 5 days, you'll see we're going to be having wet weather for quite a while--rain or snow--including, as of this time, several days of snow in a row beginning December 17! And we've already been having wet weather for quite a while as it is. Hardly any breaks!

So far, in terms of snow:
  • November 24: Snow
  • December 1-2: Winter storm snow
  • December 5: Snow

I'm super-duper happy!

My county had a storm Saturday evening, my town became cut off (no issues internally, but roads in and out impassable).

Some towns and villages in the county are flooded, and a local radio station was also flooded.

Storm Desmond it was. It did pass me over mostly, but we don't have any newspapers (and rail service was non existent yestersay and limited today, and some journeys are taking 4x as long as they should - I think mail might be affected as well...).

Typing that on my phone was a pain...
