 My Dad grew up on a farm  outside Louisville Illinois. In 1944 he joined the Army Air Corps and was sent to

Texas for training in the winter of 1944-45. When he realized what the weather was like, when he got out of the service

when the war ended, he moved to Texas and has been there ever since. It made his parents and two sisters very mad at

the time. Later on, his sisters visited him and  one of them wound up moving to Texas as well!

Just finished plowing from the storm here the last 2 days.  Took 3 hours.  That was after shoveling of course.  Now to tend to the skylights and shovel down the bank by the road so we can see to get out of our drive. 

Don't you miss it up here?  We had 6 inches of rain after 2 feet of snow,  which was a day after it was 15 below,  so we now have a solid 1 inch of ice under everything including my 600 foot driveway. 

These are photos from the last storm I took for a friend.  The new snow adds another dimension. 

Hopefully the global warming kicks in pretty quick.  Right now I'm freezing to death. 

I think this year since November there have been many days 10 to 20 degrees below normal but very few at or above.  I'm sure they will tell us the departure from normal is only 1 degree or so like in November when it snowed the first week, the kids built snow men,  and those snow men still looked fresh at Christmas. 

I think the last day we saw 70 much less 60 was at Hershey.

Can't pronounce any of them.  Good reason to stay away from the Artic Circle.

Auburnseeker-Just noticed you are from Lake George. My parents have a summer house up there. It's all fun and games in the summer, but the winters are tough...really tough. I check the webcam at the Algonquin restaurant every day. Last few days have been brutal but beautiful. Hard to contrast pulling up to the Algonquin in a boat during the summer versus the current arctic wasteland vista. Stay warm brother. Riv on! PRL

Things around and inside the Arctic circle aren't too bad today.

I thought Keflavik would be on the list. Reykjavik I suppose covers Iceland. Gets pretty cold up that way.

On a similar note, although not as quick of a warm-up as Ed experienced. We were at -26 F yesterday and have the welcome forecast of 40 F on Sunday. It will be a nice break for all including the furnace and humidifier.

Some Texans have claimed on a clear night any where in Texas you can look up and the Moon is shaped like the State of Texas. I believe that to be a true fact.

Hey Turb,

 

I have the deed to the Brooklyn Bridge.  I'll trade you the deed for a set of turbines.

Ed, I’m glad you are not dislexic on those d’s And b’s. my abbreviated nick name would have come out all wrong.

i always trust the midwesterners for certain. A bridge in trade for a set of “ hub caps” anytime.

Here in Saskatchewan, we are in the midst of a record setting cold spell.

 

Prince Albert broke a -42.8 C record that was set in 1899, with a new record of -44.8. Coronach was the coldest place in the province, setting a new weather record of -46.5 C. That broke a record of -41 C set in 1994 "

 

Even though it is a record, we are not unaccustomed to frigid temperatures. We dress warmly when we go out to shovel the latest 6" dump of snow! -40 degress Celsius is equal to 40 below fahrenheit.

This is a picture of my truck thermometer last week - 

Cheers!

That was the solution to one of the Isaac Asimov mysteries. All us nerds knew that by the time we got to Junior High.

 

My weather problem is trying to convince my Wife that wild chill factor isn't real.

 

That and pondering the basis of the Fahrenheit scale. Maybe I have too much windshield time.

The Wild Chill factor may be a hoax, but the wind chill factor is the real thing.

Bill, I’m in hopes your water pipe project came out to your expectation. 

I just had to replace a sewage ejector pump on my lower level.

After 41 years the pump needed to be replaced.

Bob,

 

All is well with the water system. We just need an 8' X 4' section of sidewalk that needed to be removed to do the repair replaced when spring rolls along. I hope your repair goes well.

Bill, one plumber wanted $1800. I said, “ I live in a nice neighborhood, but I’m not stupid.” The next plumber said $1200.00. I said ok do it.

Actually, all was needed was a switch replacement. I’ve done the job before. I was sick with stomach flu and I was in bad shape.

Anyway, I’m well and the plumbing on the lower level is 100%.

Bill, in my early days I poured a lot of concrete. Finishing concrete will work the heck out of you if you don’t know what you are doing. Eight by four pad should be a piece of cake.

Peter, I’ve been in cold weather in the MidAtlantic states in the US, BUT nothing like what you are experiencing! I’ve never could imagine being in subzero weather.
