EMERGING FROM THE TUNDRA...

I NEED YOUR HELP TO MEET OPERATING EXPENSES

THE FUTURE OF THE SITE DEPENDS ON YOU. 

Hi everyone, as you know, TSwails.com is a no-pay site; existing on voluntary subscriptions or personal donations. If you find value in the site, I'm asking kindly that you make the donation you feel is worthy. I'm suggesting $20.00, roughly a nickel a day. Less than 5% of my readers donate, so your gift is not only appreciated, it helps immensely. Your contribution, whatever you can swing, supports the content, infrastructure, and operational costs. Thanks for anything you can do!


EMERGING FROM THE TUNDRA...

It's no secret it's been cold lately. Temperatures Saturday evening are sitting well below zero across the Upper Midwest:

We've been unfortunately pretty familiar with subzero temperatures lately. Temperatures have been running well below normal over the last two weeks. Here's a look at the last 7 days:

That's a lot of snow that's largely built up over the last 14 days... eastern Iowa and western Illinois are right in the bullseye of the heaviest snow over the last 2 weeks!

When the weekend started we had a trough of cold air in overhead:

And currently a big ridge of high pressure is building in:

We'll be in the teens on Sunday which will feel like a heat wave!

And we could get even above freezing by Monday:

This will come with the potential for a wintry mix, as Terry outlined in his last post.


 Also, please consider a donation to the site as my annual fund-raiser continues. Anything you can contribute would be immensely appreciated. CLICK HERE TO HELP.
