Amazing video shows tornadoes hit the Southeast, blizzard conditions in the Midwest and snowfall in the Northeast.
A snowstorm in March. I know it’s still technically winter but, nevertheless, it feels so out of place. Like Christmas in July or a healthy economy.
I can’t say I’m happy with this weather. If I wanted to walk around with wet socks and fall on my butt then I would have just gone to Sam Donaldson’s retirement party.
At least I live in New York City, which means I don’t have to shovel. I’ve never been a fan of shoveling. In fact, as a general rule, I am opposed to anything that builds character and/or makes sidewalks safer for the elderly.
It is, however, tough to argue that snow doesn’t make everything seem prettier. Maybe it’s the Robert Frost in me talking but there’s just something special about a mugger fleeing by toboggan. Then again, maybe it's the Peppermint Schnapps in me talking.
My dog Sammy is a Labrador Retriever so, of course, she loves the snow. Her favorite thing to do is to get on her back and wriggle in it. It’s behavior that raises far fewer eyebrows at the dog park than it did during her brief stint sniffing out cocaine at the airport.
Authorities will decide Monday whether a few hundred people in the area of the Grand Canyon still need to be evacuated, an official said.
Authorities halted the evacuation Sunday night of those initially thought to be in danger after rain breached an earthen dam at the Grand Canyon, said Gerry Blair, spokesman for the Coconino County Sheriff's Office.
A decision about whether crews will evacuate them is expected Monday, Blair said.
The group awaiting word on evacuations were on high ground and did not appear to be in immediate danger by Sunday night, the spokesman said.
Rescue crews in helicopters evacuated about 170 others Sunday after water poured through Redland Dam, sending water down two canyons and threatening several hundred tourists and residents, Blair said.
Officials also plan to resume the search Monday for "less than 20" people who were in the affected area and whose whereabouts are not yet known to authorities, Blair said.
The air evacuations were called off due to darkness at 8:30 p.m. Sunday (11:30 p.m. ET).
Most of the 170 people evacuated Sunday were campers, tourists and paddlers, he said.
A few hundred others - perhaps as many as 400 - remained in the area of concern. Most are permanent residents of Supai village, located within the Havasupai Indian Reservation at the bottom of the Grand Canyon.
Tropical Storm Fay is expected to deliver up to a foot of rain to parts of Cuba, and with it, the possibility of life-threatening flash floods and mudslides, the National Hurricane Center said Monday.
At 8:15 a.m. ET Monday, Tropical Storm Fay was in the Gulf of Mexico, heading toward the Florida Keys.
Fay swept over western Cuba on Monday morning as it made its way to the eastern Gulf of Mexico and Florida Keys, according to the center's 8 a.m. ET advisory out of Miami.
"The center of Fay should be emerging into the Florida Straits during the next few hours, and be very near the Florida Keys tonight," the center said.
Maximum sustained winds strengthened to almost 60 mph (100 kph), with higher gusts, and the storm is expected to strengthen as it moves across the warm Gulf waters, the warning said.
Gary Tuchman struggles to stand as Hurricane Dolly ravages South Padre Island, Texas. Read his experience below.
Don’t mess with Dolly
As I write this, much of South Padre Island, Texas is underwater. It looks very much like parts of Wisconsin, Iowa, and Missouri from a few weeks ago, but the way South Padre got to this point has been much more rapid fire...

Here we go… the first hurricane to make landfall in the U.S. is just hours away. At the time I write this, it’s still a Tropical storm with winds of 70 mph. It needs to hit 74 mph to call it a hurricane. What are a few miles per hour between friends?
Dolly has been intensifying all morning and will continue to do so… there’s not much doubt it will be a hurricane later today, as there’s little in the way to weaken the storm before landfall.

We just arrived in Foley, Missouri, a small town of about 150 people in Lincoln County. From where I'm standing, it looks as if the entire town is under water.
There are some hilly areas to the west of Main Street that are obviously dry. But Foley is flooded.
The police chief thought this would be the worst, as the river was supposed to be cresting now. But as we were speaking we got word that there is a new, higher crest prediction for Friday night, four inches more than what it is today.
He said it's still lower than what they saw in '93 and that he thinks most people will come back and rebuild.
