Here's our weather skycam in Hannibal. To the right of the map click on the arrow next to Skycam & choose Hannibal. Then it'll bring up a separate window. It shows the historic district downtown Hannibal. At the far end of the street there are lights going up a hill. That leads to the lighthouse. Over 200 steps to get there.

I'd like to see what kind of weather other slot car fans are having. Post your links & let's see what's out there.

Later,

Freezing our backsides off here in MD. Had a dusting of snow this AM, 2 inches, thermometer is sitting at 28 degrees right now. Love winter. After the 24 inches two weeks ago, this was nothing. ;) rr

I moved to Florida 3 months ago, (Tampa bay area) tonite, the wind chill is supposed to be 8 degrees, hell, I could have stayed in Illinois for that.

I moved back to Neb. almost 2 yrs ago..... This winter has been rough, 12" snow storms. .(a couple of times) major wind and Wind chill -20 something this week....
Why live here?? Well simple.. MY Butt is frozen to it so I can't move!! and here is why:

On the sixth day, God turned to the Archangel Gabriel and said:
'Today I am going to create a land called Nebraska. It will be a land
Of outstanding natural beauty. It shall have tall majestic landscapes
full of buffalo, tall grass, and hawks, beautiful skies, forests full of
Elk and deer, rich farmland and fair skinned people.'

God continued, 'I shall make the land rich in resources so as to make
the inhabitants prosper. I shall call these inhabitants, Cornhuskers,
and they shall be known as a most friendly people.'

'But Lord,' asked Gabriel, 'don't you think you are being too generous
To these Cornhuskers?'

'Not really,' replied God 'just wait and see the winters I am going to

give them.'

Dang what's up with Fla ? Really though it was a tad colder here in ILLINOIS today with a -22 wind chill just outside of Chicago where i live LOL. Still looking forward to moving to a place like FLA myself in a year when wife can retire. Perhaps we can form a group ???

Hey Bear,
Move to NC, better weather(well, not this week!) HO slot car racing, and really lousy drivers. When I first moved to NC from Illinois/Indiana in 1989 I saw bumper stickers that said, "We don't care how you did it up North." I wanted to get some printed to stick right below those that read, "Because we can't understand doing anything the right way."
It's the same no matter where you live in the U.S., each area has it's pros and cons.

I just spent a week up near Redding, California and while it was cold and had some flurried was decent weather most of the time. Back here in the Fresno area today it's a little hazy and in the high 50's. You get above 5,500' in the mountains, above the haze and it's nice and sunny and 10 degrees warmer. I spent 6 hours ghilled up and in a snow suit and was sweating to death.
