    This is ridiculous. In the Sierras there is so much snow that ski resorts are closing down for a lot of reasons, including avalanche danger. Squaw Valley has had 557 inches of snow! And it keeps coming down, wave after wave. People are just digging and digging (see picture).

    A big danger later in spring if warm rains arrive. The reservoirs can never hold that much runoff.

    Wow, glad I don't live in the Sierras. I thought Northern Ontario had a severe winter. We have more snow on the ground March 4 than I have ever seen and this morning it is -20C. Spring coming?

    A dangerous looking setup for tornadoes in Texas and Oklahoma for Tuesday the 12th. Hopefully it won't get warm enough yet for a widespread breakout.

    Biographical note: I grew up in tornado alley, not far from Moore OK which has been wiped out twice by recent F5s. My father worked at the airbase where the Extreme Weather HQ is stationed now. Was there in 2011 when an F3 passed through. Legend has it that a local riverbed steers them away from my old hood.

    Almost done cleaning up the flood damage. Water got 9 feet deep on my street. Some river hoods are even lower and got it worse.

    It's been almost two weeks of work dealing with the before and after. Doesn't look like we'll get much help without federal support. After clearing out all this toxic debris we're being told to transport it ourselves to a central collection site. The local dump is not waiving fees.

    I cannot wait to get out of California, it's all I think about now.

    I expect to hear about the first spring high water casualty sometime by mid April... the first hot spell will bring this down with a vicious wrath... summer hikers falling into the water - I've almost been one of them..

    Back when I ran river trips I would make it most emphatic that the most dangerous part of it was getting in and out of the boat. People would just laugh and then learn the hard way.

    The center of the energy will be moving from Texas to 200 miles northeast of the Great Lakes by Friday the 15th. Very fast. So spring is coming quickly at 20,000 ft.

    We're not complaining down here south of Colorado, because wintery blasts mostly miss us now to the east, and the mountain ski resorts are still getting enough snow (probably more because it's warmer).

    Google temperature readings are stupidly off in many places in Turkey. Both in the west and the east of the country. Looks like Google pulls numbers out of its a*s.

    The difference gets as high as 10°C in the west and 13°C in the east between Google and official weather station.

    Springtime at Bispebjerg here in Copenhagen. Once again, warmer temperatures than normally, and generally wettier in March. Unexpectedly, a new alley of cherries in a cemetery park, a bit out in the suburbs, has become a traditional outing place for locals and tourists celebrating springtime. In quite large numbers ...
