  1. im guessing the coastgaurd boats arent as small as the appear near the huge freighter?
    awesome grunt they have!
    be very interesting to see how much deeper and longer duration the ice would be if they didnt keep breaking it up too.

  2. Snow in SC and NC early April?

    …SNOW SHOWERS DEVELOPING ALONG AND NEAR THE INTERSTATE 77 CORRIDOR IN THE CAROLINA PIEDMONT THIS MORNING…

    Rain and snow showers developing along and near the Interstate 77 corridor in the piedmont of the western Carolinas this morning
    will transition more to snow showers through 9 am as the
    precipitation rates increase. Although the ground remains
    relatively warm, increased snow shower rates could permit some
    accumulations to begin to develop on grassy and elevated surfaces.
    In addition, any heavier snow showers may briefly limit
    visibility. Use caution if traveling this morning.

    Any snow accumulations this morning will melt quickly this
    afternoon as the sun comes out and temperature warm through the 40s and reach the lower 50s in some areas.
