Thread: snow and cold

    snow and cold

    I hope everyone affected by the fun weather in the US is doing ok. Our
    office was shutdown for a couple of days due to lots of snow and
    sub-zero temps (Fahrenheit). Windchill one day was about -40. I
    haven't seen weather like this for quite some time.

    Ken:

    I won't tell you what our temperatures have been here, but they've been
    a bit warmer than what you've been experiencing. The cold didn't reach
    as southwest as we are.

    Good to know someone had the common sense to shut down a company and
    tell people to stay home. No one should be outside for any reason in
    that kind of weather!

    Did you have any particular problems with your house or vehicles?

    Here in Utah we missed out on the bitter cold. Snowing today which is
    much needed.

    I get a kick when they showed maps of the US with the cold dipping down
    and talking about the poor schmucks in Minnesota....but I'm thinking
    about the poor shmucks further North in Canada!

    Hey Susan,

    >I won't tell you what our temperatures have been here


    I've heard it's been very dry there. We're also dryer than normal but
    not terrible.

    Fortunately not. The cars sit in the garage and we never lost power,
    so we were ok. A town a little north of us had a major power outage.
    I felt sorry for the power company linemen...having to restore power
    in that weather. Yikes.

    It is 14 degrees F right now...seems almost balmy by comparison. :-)

    I love snow and I don't mind normal cold...but the temps we had this
    past weekend are not my idea of fun. Fortunately temps are rising and
    we should be getting more snow in a day or two.

    Out here in Boston the winter conditions are always good for fodder to
    give to the talking weather-heads on the boob-tube. They've got to have
    some "dire conditions" to earn their pay.

    Hi Ken,

    I don't envy you in those weather conditions. I simply would not cope.

    We are currently having days of between 90 and 100 Fahrenheit - now THAT
    is my kind of weather

    Take care of yourself.

    Cheers,

    Re: snow and cold

    Yes, we're in our third year of drought. There's been no rain this
    season. We had one rain storm in September, one snowstorm in December,
    and nothing else. We have our fingers crossed the skies will open in
    February, if not sooner. and rain all spring. If we don't get lots of
    rain, we'll be in trouble this summer.

    Re: snow and cold

    Yes, if you're going to work for an electric company, better move
    south! I've heard that the arctic air is supposed to go back up to
    where it belongs, and temperatures get warmer over the next week.
    You'll probably be in the 50's before you know it, at least, I hope so!
