This isn't the greatest photo, but the light caught the ice really nice here as I was out on a supply run in between ice storms (like most everyone else in Corvallis today while the high dominated).

Very unusual weather for us, west of the Cascades, due to that Arctic air intrusion last week and a lingering cold pool. We'll be back to the usual rain in a few days. It was nice to see the sun.

My husband’s family lives in Highland and Redlands and felt it!
The epicenter was in San Bernardino very close to my workplace. Foreshock to a larger event? Highly doubt it, but you never know I suppose... although, my house actually sits much closer to the S.A.F. than the epicenter of this recent quake.

I have been watching various meteorologists here in Northwest Arkansas. While it is not as big of a market as North Alabama or Birmingham, there are still some great weather teams here. Recently, I came across a meteorologist with a unique name, "Majestic Storm," while watching ABC 40/29 in Fayetteville. I have heard of TV meteorologists having weather-inspired names (real or stage names) before, but this was the first time I had seen one on TV!

Majestic does a great job as well as the rest of the weather team. Anyone else have any names?

WAAY in Huntsville had a young woman named Stormy. I don't remember her last name.

Fun fact: I have a sister named Stormey; sadly, the last name isn't weather or action-related. lol

Wow. :( For some reason this popped up on a volcano Google search -- it's so bad, ReliefWeb is on it, too:

An extreme winter weather event has killed at least two million head of livestock in Mongolia​


By Stuart Butler
For some parts of the northern hemisphere, winter 2023-24 has been unusually mild. But that’s not the case in Mongolia. This landlocked, central Asian country is used to bitter winters with temperatures sometimes dipping to a bone-chilling minus 50 degrees Celsius, but this year has been hard even by Mongolian standards...

So I happened to notice an error on the Day 2 weather map:

pres-err.PNG

Note the pressure value for the low on the Arkansas-Oklahoma border (circled)! That clearly has to be a typo (it's supposed to read "1009"), because if that was in any way accurate, then...:eek:

(No clue where to post this...)

Was looking up the survey report for the 2010 Great Livermere, UK tornado and accidentally discovered that SKYWARN UK's website is no longer about weather... no joke, it's a site to find prostitutes now. Not sure whether to find that hilarious or be completely repulsed...

(But apparently prostitution is legal in the UK, so I guess it makes sense unfortunately.)
