Well, there's a front coming through. We're only supposed to get an inch or so but the temperature is going to plummet. It's about 55 degrees right now, but the rest of the week is supposed to be in the low teens on some days, single digits on others, and as low as 10 below at night. PLUS we're supposed to get 35 MPH winds for the next few days.

 

And I have a shipment of guitars coming in on Thursday! A high of 8 degrees and a low of minus 10! Guitars BREAK in cold weather. :angry:  :angry:  :angry:  :angry:  :angry:  :angry:  :angry:

The cold front isn't hitting us until later tonight but it's coming here too. We got snow first. Because it's two fronts mixing they told us that they couldn't predict snowfall. I woke up to 4 inches and it's still coming down. It won't be above freezing today, and it won't get out of the twenties for the foreseeable future. I know I grew up in PA where it snows, then snows more and more and more and just keeps piling up but I'm spoiled now. When it snows it melts away within a few days at the longest and I'm just not used to this snow + cold thing anymore.

My son ended up with some minor frostbite (frost nip) the other day when he was shovelling a neighbour's driveway at the tail end of the last blizzard. It was only -20 then but the wind was gusting up to 80km/h so the windchill was a factor. We only got about half a foot of snow but the drifts were pretty cool... well not cool to dig through. You know the type where you have to dig out the top, the middle and then the last shovel full you finally see pavement?  My arms were stiff for a couple of days.... I do enjoy shovelling though.  :rolleyes:

 

Today my FIL, who lives 20 minutes west us us in the foothills, thought his thermometer was broken because it said -39C... That about the same in farenheit isn't it?  LOL It wasn't quite -30C at our place.

 

It's not even winter yet!

-20 at my house this morning with a wind chill advisory. Probably about -30 with the wind. And I don't have a furnace! Mine broke so I'm using space heaters (electric radiators). I have five of them going and most of the house closed off, but it was only 53 in there this morning. Not bad when you're moving around but when you first get up and sit drinking coffee, it's mighty chilly. And getting out of the shower is excruciating. I couldn't wait to get to work where it's warm.

 

But what really bothers me is, they're having a stupid Christmas parade tonight!!! All the floats are lit up. It starts at 6PM. People are going to drag their kids out and lots of them will get frostbite. They SHOULD postpone it, but they haven't yet. Next week it's going to go back into the 40's/20's. WHY doesn't SOMEBODY use their brain??!!!!

It got up to 13 yesterday. Today it's supposed to be up to the low or mid 20s. Woohoo? Taking advantage of the "warmer" of the days we're getting and doing my grocery shopping today. At least I can hit more than one store buying frozen things and not have to come back home. :D We're supposed to get more snow tomorrow.

 

I agree they should cancel the parade but you know how dense some people are. And to add to the stupidity of still having the parade, parents will be out with their kids anyway, cold or not. There are going to be some frozen fingers, toes and noses. How sad. :(

If you want to experience real cold, you are welcome to visit me! It is currently -32 but the windchill is a dangerous -47. It truly is painfully cold and frostbite can occur in 90 seconds on exposed skin. I am not exactly liking this! Darned stupid dumb winter!!!

That is just crazy.   Too cold for human or beast to be outside.  I hope you've got a nice fire going with some delicious beverage.  Sorry your back is hurting so bad.  Take care.

I am about to enjoy Mexican hot cocoa with a wondrous murder mystery.  :) 

 

My SI joint shifted according to my chiro and now my body is extra tender.  This extreme weather really exacerbates this pain, too.  My husband is out of town but will be arriving home in five hours.  Not that I'm counting or anything...

Oh, Irish, you know more than most how debilitating this can be.  I was sooooooooooo hoping going gluten free would help but it hasn't one little bit.  Still having massage, acupuncture, cupping, etc.  I honestly feel this weather is making things worse.  Oh, man, I cannot wait to be in Croatia!  Not long now...   :)

I would say so, dear girl. I just could not do another long winter in NY. Just could not do it. 

 

I hope you feel better soon. I did a series of exercises for my SI joint...I trust the chiro gave you some?

Just recall how much better you felt a few months ago while you were away.

It will come back to you!.

Hang in there honey. I wish I could take that pain away. I am sure the cold weather is not helping things.

Damn inflammation. damn damn damn

So true! A few weeks ago it was in the 20s for a week and it was windy and bitter and I couldn't stand it at all. Today it was in the 20s and was a perfectly lovely day. I didn't mind at all until the sun went down.

 

Hope it warms up a bit for everyone soon! At least a bit above freezing.

I'll be happy when it gets a bit above ZERO! Last night was only 11 below, but the wind chill made it feel like -26. And they DID have that stupid parade. I don't know if anybody showed up to watch it though.

But it warmed up substantially overnight to a balmy -25C with a windchill of -35.  This past we were the coldest place on earth according to our weather network.  Not so unusual...

    • That's what I thought!  My father has gluten sensitivity and I almost regret telling the doctor that because I feel that made her jump to conclusions because of that.  He never had the biopsy either.  I feel like doctors think it's just easier to say it's celiac when they show a gluten sensitivity to avoid additional testing, even if that diagnosis doesn't make any sense at all.  My doctor didn't even offer the biopsy, and said the blood work was enough.  Should I seek a third opinion?  I mean, I've been gluten free for 9 months...
    • It will prolong your life....celiac is a autoimmune disease that  causes your own immune system to attack you. The longer your eating gluten the worse it gets, I mean all kinds of other autoimmune disease, food allergies, food intolances. One day you could lose the ablity to eat carbs, or sugars, or become randomly allergic to tomatoes or corn all cause you decided not to be on road to healing I am not kidding here. I am allergic to corn, can not process meats, have another autoimmune disease that makes it so I can not eat dairy or CARBS/SUGARS.   I wish I could go back in time and go on a gluten-free diet a decade ago. Worse that could happen you could develop cancer or other complications and yes we have had this happen to a member before on our forums. Think of it like this your just changing brand here I will give you some links to some gluten-free foods, and how to order them, You can even order alot of them online this should help simplify it for you. I suggest thrive, amazon, or one of hte other links from there, Many you can order from the manufacture. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/  
    • I know this is not funny for you guys, but I had to laugh about how all of those family members simply ignored your well meant advice. That is definitely head in the sand syndrome. I have tried for a long time to find the connection between autoimmune diseases and my health. With this celiac diagnosis I have finally found it. All of the puzzle pieces are in place for sure and it is going to be my mission to do the best possible in order to get healthy again.   What a sneaky disease this is and to think that none of my family members never were diagnosed, despite the fact that both have been in doctor's care all of their lives. It really goes to show that most medical doctors simply seem to completely disconnect nutrition with health.   I am scared to give that advice to people when I see them suffering from specific diseases. But there are people that I would like to help if I can. Scared to make those suggestions, because so many times negative reactions follow and all I meant to do was to help that person.
    • There are definitely things you can do to make it easier on yourself. But all of my ideas seem to cost money and involve cooking. But I'll give it a shot anyway in case you haven't already thought of it. I would buy a small chest freezer and put gluten-free foods in it. Canyon bakehouse sells their fantastic bread and bagels right on their website. You can just buy a case of it. Then if you ever get in the mood for a sandwich or bagel the bread's right there frozen in your chest freezer. If you get invited to somebody's house for dinner find out what their cooking and make your own similar version of it. So for Easter I would make ham, potatoes and broccoli and bring that with me. So when everybody else is eating a fantastic Easter dinner I'm also eating a fantastic Easter dinner. I have other food issues and before celiac I was invited to a friend's wedding. I wasn't going to be able to eat the food they were serving so I made similar food at home. They were serving lamb, ham, vegetables, potatoes. So I brought ham, corn and potatoes with me and heated it up when everybody was going to the buffet to get their food. So when everybody else was pigging out on this great wedding dinner I was also pigging out on a great dinner. And nobody would have noticed if they didn't try. Sometimes you just get in the mood to have a frozen dinner and just don't feel like cooking something. There's two ways you can go about this. I happen to be addicted to Udi's chicken Florentine and think that their broccoli kale lasagna is very good as well. So I'd stock up on that in that chest freezer. glutenfreemall.com has tons of stuff. On Sunday you can make a weeks worth of food and freeze a lot of it in individual portions. After a few weeks you will have several different meals in the chest freezer that you made at home. You can eat those on weeknights when you're too busy to cook. In my family Friday night was always eat out fast food night. McDonald's, Burger King, pizza, fried chicken. So for pizza my plan is to purchase Etalia New York style pizza crusts. Purchase some Escalon six in one crushed tomatoes and freeze in individual portions. Buy some Grande 50/50 mozzarella cheese and freeze in individual portions as well. If on Friday night if I am in the mood for pizza I'll just grab a crust, a portion of sauce and a portion of cheese from the chest freezer and make myself pizza in under 15 minutes. When I get invited to a barbecue I bring loaded potato skins or batter fried chicken wings. Everybody loves them as do I. I by Pamela's gluten-free flour from Amazon six at a time. So I always have some available. For the record, at the moment I am an extremely strict diet and cannot do any of the above. But will go back to that method in a few months.
    • Yes, I remember as a child being very ill too, could never explain it. The fact that I have several autoimmune diseases speaks volumes. I sure wish I had caught this much sooner.   Will have to research to increase enzyme consumption, but we can not look into our digestive system. Trying to concentrate on repairing the damage, not much else that can be done right now.
