No kidding.  The temperature was -11 at 8:30 this morning.  The kids in local areas had school today because there are no snow days left. :huh:

 

I'm keeping my fingers crossed peeps don't end up with frostbite or serious car accidents from this cold and ice.

Not sure where you are mommida but I am in northwestern PA and it  is the same here, -12 * and my grand kids were off to school because  there are no snow days left. My daughter drove them so they would not have to stand at the bus stop in that cold.

I am taking tomorrow off! 7 to 12 inches of snow, a high temperature of minus 4 and windchills of minus 27! If anybody comes out to buy a guitar tomorrow they are nuts!

Blah. It's minus 25C without the windchill right now. With the windchills it's in the minus 30's. Blech. Tomorrow's HIGH is minus 26C. The high!! The low is minus 30 something...That's just so very wrong.  

 

I heard that Regina (capital of Sakatchewan) is expected to get to -38C and have a strong wind that could take the windchill down to -67C.  I can't even imagine what that would feel like... that's 30C colder than us!

Years ago a bought this coat, the polar parka, from Eddie Bauer.  It is rated for -50 C.  It can feel stiff, but I am soo glad I kept it all these years.

 

I think it would be pretty hard to breathe at -67 wind chill!!? :ph34r:

 

I'm in Michigan.  A Troll.  (that means I live under the bridge/ lower peninsula.)

 

More snow coming tonight.  Just spent 1/2 an hour clearing the morning's snow and snowdrifts off the driveway.

Oh, for love of mike...you are all making me feel so bad and depressing the hell out of me. :lol: 

 

It's 78 and fabulous here. I have just returned from watching a METS game (the hub's team) and we are sitting on the lanai, having drinks and feeling as if we are the only ones who have discovered this giant freakin secret to everlasting happiness.

 

It's called the SUN. B) and  27.24  N latitude and 80.23  W longitude

 

Please, get on a damn plane and come visit  lol

(but not all at once,ok....I only have so much room).

 

Although, there is a very nice ,reasonably priced clean hotel on the Indian River nearby that I can wholeheartedly recommend to you.

Is it? what the heck am I thinking of, then? :lol: It's an island near my aunt's place near Sarasota....let me go look at a map.....be right back.

 

Okay, I looked at the map....hmm, I guess I was thinking of one of the keys over there...my mistake.

Still learning the state. We have spent time in various places down here, but I am still not completely sure where everything is. lol

 

hey! Jacksonville is only 4 hours away. If you come down here, let me know!

(checked my map again  :D  it's only 3.5 hours away.) Maps are fun.

Family members have been relocating to warmer climates and sending pictures of the beauteous weather too.

 

I send them back a picture of my glove with the middle finger up straight in the snow.  :P Usually with the mailbox as a height reference to show how high the snow is this year.

I used to do the same thing to my friend who lives down here. I would tell her how cold it is, how much snow we have, blah blah

and she would send me a text with "oooh, so sorry, I am sitting by the pool right now. Don't you wish you were here? "...so, I would just skype call her and just sit with my face all wrapped up in a scarf and my hat pulled down low, with my woolen-mitted hands holding a sign that said "Screw you!  Love ya, Me".

 

Now, apparently, I am the jerk who lives  "down here".

Now, if you'll all excuse me....the beach awaits. Love ya. Me.

snow day in Delaware!  We were projected to get a lot more snow than we actually did.  Since it's such a tiny state, it tends to be either the whole state shuts down or is open.  Today it's a state of emergency, and everything is closed.  

 

Winter has always been my favorite season, and I love snow.  I love going outside when it's actually snowing and how everything is so still and quiet.   That always makes me think and reflect  :)

** warning possibly offensive language **

I borrowed this from my sister FB page

 

 

 

 

GOTTA LOVE PA:

August 15
Moved to a new home in Pennsylvania . It's so beautiful here.
The lake to the north looks so majestic. I can hardly
wait to see it snow covered. I'm going to love it here.

October 14
Pennsylvania is definitely the most beautiful place on earth. The leaves have turned all the colors and
shades of red and orange. Went for a ride through the park and saw
some deer. They are so graceful. Certainly they are the most
wonderful animals on earth. This must be paradise, I LOVE IT HERE.

November 10
Deer season will start soon. I can't imagine anyone wanting to kill such a gorgeous animal, hope it will
snow soon. I love it here. Those red and orange leaves have covered
my yard. Looks like a magnificent multi-colored carpet. HOW BEAUTIFUL.
Raking and cleaning up the yard will be an opportunity for invigorating
exercise in the cool crisp air.

November 15 -
Ah, more leaves and more exercise.

November 18 -
 still more leaves. Guess it's best to
wait until they've all fallen before I rake again.

November 25 -
Finally, all of the trees lost their leaves

and today's final raking it's over for this season. Chiropractor
suggested I use a lawn maintenance service next year. Only four blisters
became infected. Should probably remember to use gloves.

November 30 -
What the H***? Where did all of those leaves come from? A little wind last night and the lawn is covered
again. Oh well, they'll just have to wait until spring.

December 12 -
It snowed last night, FINALLY. Woke up to find
everything blanketed in white. It looks like a postcard. We
went outside and cleaned the snow off the steps and shoveled the
driveway. Had a snowball fight (I won) and when the snowplow came
by and we had to shovel the end of the driveway again. What a beautiful
place. I Love Pennsylvania

December 14 -
More snow last night, I love it. The snowplow
did his trick to the driveway again.
I Love it here.

December 19 -
More snow again last night. Can't get out of the
driveway to get to work. I'm
exhausted from shoveling.  D*** snowplow.

December 22 -
More of that white s*** fell again last night. A s if dealing with the leaves weren't bad enough, now
I've got blisters all over my hands from shoveling, must remember to wear
gloves. I think the snowplow hides around the corner and waits until I'm finished
shoveling the driveway. The a******.

December 25 -
Merry Christmas. More frigging snow. If I ever get

my hands on that s**-of-a-b**** who drives the snowplow. I swear
I'll kill the b*******. Don't know why they don't use more salt on the
roads to melt the d****** ice.

December 27 -
More white s*** last night. Have been inside for
three days except for shoveling out the driveway after that plow goes
through every time. D****** gloves got wet and then froze
on my hands. Doctor said it was just a mild case of
frostbite, disfiguration is probably only temporary. Can't go anywhere,
car is stuck in a mountain of white sh-t. The weatherman says to expect
another 10 inches of the s*** tonight. Do you know how many shovels full
of snow 10 inches is?

December 28 -
The d****** weatherman was wrong. We got 34 inches of that white s***. A t this rate it won't melt 'till summer. The
plow got stuck up the road and the b****** came to the door
and asked to borrow a shovel. After I told him I'd already broken
six of them shoveling all the s*** he pushed into the driveway, I
broke my last one on his d*** head.

January 4 -
Finally got out of the house today. Went to the store to get food and on the way back I hit a damned deer that
ran in front of my car. Did about $3000 damage d****** beast should
be killed. Wish the hunters had killed them all last November.

May 3 -
Took the car to the garage in town. The thing is rusting out from all the d****** salt they put all
over the roads.

May 10 -
Moved to The Villages in Florida . I can't imagine why anyone in their right mind would ever live in that
God-forsaken state of Pennsylvania
