    Winter Storm Dion to Bring Snow, Ice From West to the Northeast

    http://www.wunderground.com/news/win...ecast-20131204

    Winter Storm Dion, the fourth named winter storm of the 2013-14 season, will result in more snow and ice for some of the same areas impacted by Winter Storm Cleon.

    Dion initially will produce snow in the West through Saturday night.

    From there, Dion will then spread snow and ice from the Midwest to the Mid-South, Ohio Valley, Middle Atlantic and Northeast Saturday night into Monday.

    Here's a look at the forecast through the beginning of next week........

    The limbs down all over are what it was like during one really bad ice storm. You could hear the cracking of the ice constantly! Hubby and I saw one enormous branch from a tall tree break and fall to the ground...and we looked at each other like 'did that just happen?'

    One odd thing was the outside was incredibly beautiful...sun was shining and it looked like the world was encased in glass. Sparkling diamond like...until a branch cracked and broke off and we were praying the big branches over our trees wouldn't break.

    You can also purchase a weather radio which will inform you of severe weather even if your electricity goes out. Runs on batteries of course.

    If a wheelie bin breaks free from its mates and makes repeated attempts to roll down the road, first one way and then, as the wind turns, the other, well....that's what I'm hearing, a trash bin uncertain of its freedom in the teeth of an approaching storm, one way then another, wheeling one way then another.

    After a week+ primarily in the low 80s, this "cold snap" is esp. bitter. Panhandle could see snow but even here, in the NE corner of OK the weather sprites are having their way with us....and laughing. Icily. 35 degrees, twenty-seven wind chill, and twenty-eight tonight (wind chill probably 12-15) but no precipitation (for now, thank God). Brrr...rrr.rrr.rrrr.

    Any Oklahomans out there? Have you been shaking a lot lately?

    Oklahoma quakes this year top tremors in California

    Between 1978 and 2008, Oklahoma experienced an average of just two quakes of 3.0 magnitude of greater. In 2014, as of Thursday, there have been about 207 such quakes recorded in the state, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

    I really don't know. It's a fairly large state. We don't have earthquakes like Oklahoma...not even in New Madrid area. It's amazing to me Oklahoma is having more earthquakes than California. Who dah thunk it? Are you in a place with earthquakes Cracka Jaxx?

    I'd like to know what Oklahomans think of all the earthquakes...some may be in an area where they say...what earthquakes, we don't have them? Or in an area where they say I'm sick and tired of all the rock 'n' rollin'.

    Yes, we certainly have been shaking. A tremor nearly bucked me off the couch just now. This is not normal and absolutely 100% due to fracking.

    According to Cochran, there are thousands of wastewater injection sites across the state, and many more across the country, but understanding the physics behind why some areas have seen dramatic increases and others have not depends on understanding a variety of variables.

    Cochran said the rate in which injection occurs, the volume of fluid injected and the existing state of the geology may all play a role.

    The largest event in the state to occur in the past century was a 5.6-magnitude quake that struck Oklahoma in November 2011. "That was the largest event linked to injection," Cochran said.

    I'm so sorry Okiegranny. When my nephew lived in texas he had a few earthquakes, one caused some cracks up the wall. He was convinced they were also due to fracking.

    That's what I'm worried about. How much shaking can our houses take before they start coming apart? Nothing is built to withstand earthquakes around here.

    There have been more than 500 magnitude 3.0 or greater earthquakes in Oklahoma this year, up significantly from 109 in 2013 and just 35 in 2012, according to U.S. Geological Survey officials.

    As of Monday, there had been 539 of the higher magnitude quakes in 2014, with 19 being magnitude 4.0 or greater.
