I was in Afghanistan during the polar vortex in 2013. It's times like this I wish I was in a Middle Eastern desert.

It's going to drop to 25° F tonight...in San Antonio. 😨😨😨


My phone is telling me 22 tonight in south Austin. The end of the world is nigh. Haha.


Eeek! What is going on here....this is Texas, people. What is this "winter" stuff?? We're used to experiencing summer, spring and second summer, all in one day. Now we've got consistent weather and it's got to be winter. Somebody needs to call Antarctica and tell them to come get their climate...we don't want it.

went from 29 to 75 and back down to 35 on the mid atlantic coast , not to be a harbinger of doom , but something strange , at least from my memory , is happening to our planet.


Oh, it's definitely strange. No doubt about that. Everyone around here keeps talking about how bizarre this is.

I was stationed in Malaysia for a couple years. I don't think the temp ever dropped below about 90 degrees F (and the humidity was always in the 95% range). It was like living inside a zip-lock bag! I never got used to it...not even close! Even the rain was hot when it would rain (which was a LOT!).

I'll take the cold any day compared to heat like that. We used to joke that you couldn't walk from the clubhouse to the 1st tee (on the golf course) without your golf glove getting soaking wet, and it was true! Nothing ever really dried out...you just lived in a constant state of moist-ness. Of course working 50 miles out in the jungle didn't help matters much.

Heh, I remember once the temp dropped to about 88 degrees and people were running around in heavy winter coats!! It was frickin' hilarious; people talking about "can you believe how FREEZING COLD it is today?????" LOL!

It wasn't uncommon to jump into my truck and see the inside thermometer read 80C (176F). I'd sit in there for a minute while it was cooling down and then jump outside and it would actually feel "cool" for a second in 95F degree weather!

Guess I'm lucky I don't have to worry about getting a hit of that pogonip.

3 degress is fine by me, no humidity or clouds or wind today, will be a fine day.

It's cold here, too, but not as cold as it is where you are. I hate the cold. Make sure you bundle up. You don't want to lose any body parts.

I'm kinda surprised you don't have one of these.

You know, I don't really mind the cold so much. What I mind is those who can't take it.


Yeah, all those folks getting frostbite and dying of hypothermia are a real pain in the butt, eh?

Maybe we could discuss this further... I think I'm free next August if you want to come to Arizona and chat...

What's that? NO??? I didn't think so.

You've almost got to see it to really believe it's not some sort of parlor trick.

It was about -10 last night in Chicago. I went out to shovel snow. Because the past few winters have been relatively mild, I didn't have a hat or gloves. I nearly got frostbite after about five minutes of shoveling snow. My fingers were frozen stiff. Hurt like a mofo.

Just placed an order for some new gloves and skull cap.

I actually saw ice fog once in Fernley, NV of all places. I was working at the Amazon warehouse at the time. I didn't know what it was until I got home and looked it up.

That's not what I meant, and you know it!

Just take a gander at the weather reports...you'd think it was the Apocalypse!

ETA...oh, thanks for the invite to AZ in August, but you're right; I think I'll pass! I'll even admit; I "whine" about the heat.

We get that stuff quite a bit here. Just lays there like a blanket on the ground. You can be driving along and all of a sudden you're in it...and totally blind. It's pretty spooky when that happens.

I learned to appreciate heat.

Then I learned to hate humidity when I was stationed in Fort Riley, Kansas. 80% humidity in the winter sucks really bad.

Only if its desert heat. Heat/humidity kills me. There's a reason I live in Nevada.
