A winter storm of hurricane strength was slamming Alaska early Wednesday with winds of up to 100 mph, high seas and blizzard conditions.
The National Weather Service called the storm moving into the state off the Bering Sea "a powerful and extremely dangerous storm of record or near-record magnitude."May the FORCE be with you!

Thursday is a day of infamy in weather history. 15 years ago, the No-Name storm of 1993 slammed into the west coast of Florida. A deep trough of low pressure, very cold arctic air and a developing low in the gulf all combined to give Florida both winter and seemingly tropical weather. A 12 foot storm surge struck the Big Bend area to Hernando county, swamping coastlines and destroying homes. High winds and tornadoes caused damage, and 2 inches of snow fell in north Florida. Some 26 people were killed in our state alone. Up to a foot fell in Birmingham, Alabama and the storm pounded the northeast with over three feet of snow in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and even North Carolina. Proof that you don’t need a hurricane to get big storm damage.

What, where, something missed us?The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
