    Hello J.B.,

    Amazing weather conditions across North America right now. Tropical Storm,record warmth,(the birds are singing this morning like it’s Spring) major ice and snow storm,and extreme cold in Canada. Fun time of the year for weather watchers. Thanks to all the readers who continue to send pictures in from all over the country.

    I posted a question yesterday and wanted to thank those who responded. Matt Marshall(very knowlegeable person) who reports from snowy Utah, Acid Reign, and Sarai for their thoughts.

    I always learn something new on the blog just about everyday and one thing I learned yesterday from Matt Marshall was the fact that areas in Utah can receive lake effect snow from the Great Salt Lake just like our friends do from the Great Lakes. Very Interesting!

    Chuck Biddinger(sorry if I mispelled your last name),you mentioned yesterday to post my question on the talkweather forum. I do read occassionally from that forum but I’m fully committed to this blog for my information. I think with a potential rain/snow event here, ice storm to the North, a Tropical Storm, and record warmth the blog got extremely busy. With the blog that busy it was the wrong time for me to post the question. So like J.B. says life goes on. Everyone have a good and safe day!

    Thanks
