Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow……….In Baton Rouge?

I woke up this morning at 6 a.m. on Thursday in Baton Rouge, LA and to my surprise it was snowing. In southeast Louisiana snow is something that you don’t see very often, maybe if you are lucky once every 5 years! Dropped the kiddie off at school only to have turn right back around and get her. See, since we are not use to snow the schools close because Baton Rouge’s roadways can not handle the snow and further more people do not know how to drive in snow.

The last time I saw snow was in December 2004 in New Orleans on Christmas day, which was really odd, yes folks, New Orleans had a white Christmas first time in my life that has ever happened. No surprise that Katrina hit that following summer in August 2005. Southeast Louisiana’s weather is very unpredictable one day it’s snowing and by the weekend it will be in the low 60s. It’s 8 a.m. and as you can imagine the snow has stopped and is beginning to melt into a wet mess. I must say that during our little “snow storm” it was absolutely beautiful and for others like me who were not in the Christmas mood this certainly made me feel like a child again, it felt like Christmas time in the city.

Snow is also in the forecast for my Pacific Northwest Coast area, and it doesn't snow that often here, either.    Climate change????

I hope you and your child got to have a little fun in the snow before it became a wet mess.  We are supposed to get snow close to sea level in Seattle Friday into Saturday.  The down side is we are also expecting high winds which usually knock out power and trees.  I'm just doing my snow dance so the ski areas will open soon!

I have heard that the ocean temperatures are slightly cooler which will make our winters cooler with more snow precipitation.  Although so far November and December have been pretty dry and warm.  They say this temperature change in the ocean occurs in cycles and we are into a new one.  More snow in the mountains would be great as long as I don't have to shovel at my home!
