I have seen snow on the ground when we have been on holidays but I have never seen snow falling.
:(

 

There has been times wen I wish I had not seen it falling.

 

I recall one winter evening back in my truck driving days just before dusk I was going though Arizona headed up what is called Texas Canyon. It stated snowing just as I started up the mountain, before I came down on the other side it was already about 1 foot deep & rising. Thankfully it stopped, I had to be in Los Angeles the next morning.

 

Snow can be pretty yet not when your on the road.

I driven in snow - in both 2wd and 4x4, with and without chains, when on holiday - but never seen it actually snowing.

Don't get me wrong - I don't want to live in it, just to visit on occasion. :lol:

And right now we have our fourth day near 110°f. Never snowed in Perth. Ever.
As far as I know...

We got all the way up to 63º today, they say we might hit 70º tomorrow!

 

I spent the afternoon trying to get rid of some of the pecan tree leaves, I only made a very small dent in them, & I told my wife, "If leaves were worth lots of money we would not have a single leaf."

Ah, but wait, Dave...if it snows in Egypt, could Perth be far behind? :biggrin:


Maybe, but in recorded history it has never happened... ;)

only one place in the whole state regularly gets snow - about three days every four years our highest southern peak gets snow.

every four years is pretty regular - just not very often..... :lol:

Strange things happen once in a while & you can see them if your in the right place at the right time.

 

I recall one afternoon another hand that drove for the same trucking company as I was headed west & we had just gotten off of I-20 onto I-10 out in West Texas late one summer afternoon. It was not a hot summer afternoon which would have been normal for that country at that time of year, it was just under 80º.

 

All of a sudden snow started falling out of the sky, we could not believe it, not this time of year. We talked with some other truck drivers that were east bound on our CB Radio & they said they hit the snow about 5 miles back. Of course it melted as soon as it hit anything. We pulled over on the shoulder & got out enjoying the snow falling standing out beside our trucks. The air felt a bit cool for a summer afternoon in that county & it really felt strange standing out there in short sleeves with snow falling on us & in about 3 to 5 minutes it stopped.

About two years ago we had a major hailstorm that dented cars all over the city.
The insurance companies went berserk, the repairers could not do all the work, the car yards wrote off thousands of brand new cars and used cars.

You still see hail dented cars driving around. People bought them really cheap from insurance sales.

We don't often have hailstorms here but they do happen.

We've had some good sized hail in storms.  Thankfully, nothing of ours has been damaged in any.  It snowed here again yesterday.  It's very cold. Jerry, I could handle some 60-70° weather!!  Nice for you!

 

Today we hit 68º, I'm going to be stingy, & try to hold on to it as long as I can!  :biggrin:

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
