I agree, it's cold, very cold, seriously COLD. They had to ask?

Oh Noes!


The "bomb cyclone," with its whipping winds and foot-plus snowdrifts, has passed, but even more teeth-chattering weather has blanketed the eastern U.S. in its wake. Temperatures of 20 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit (11 to 17 degrees Celsius) below normal are keeping people bundled up from the Midwest to the Northeast, according to the National Weather Service (NWS). With the blistering winds fueled by the storm, temperatures feel even colder still, with wind chills into the negative double-digits.

This temperature anomaly map is based on data from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer on NASA's Terra satellite. It shows land surface temperatures from Dec. 26, 2017 to Jan. 2, 2018, compared with the 2001–2010 average for the same eight-day period.

That depends on what part of Al Gores brain you happen to be on.

It's winter. It was like that from Nov. to Feb. when I was a kid. Nothing new here, time to hope on the motorcycle and go for a ride and see the snow in the mountains.

I know it, the windchill deadens parts of my body including the ones down south. I've lived through -40 weather, really thickens the blood up.

it must be all that global warming that`s causing all this cold, right?

If it wasn't for the frozen Iguana Pops...this weather would totally suck.

Do you mind if I take this opportunity to whine?

*whines* It's soooo cold. I hate this. I can't take this. It hurts it so cold. It's painful. Literally. It hasn't been above freezing in days. I put new flannel sheets on my bed to stay warm and they feel like cardboard. sniff.
*whines louder* I can't even give the birds water because it freezes the minute I put it out and turns to ice. If I wanted this I would move to Canada. (sobs). My dogs don't even want to go outside. My backdoor is glass, and I screwed cup hooks into the surrounding wood and hung a quilt over it. And it looks ugly. *sobs.* I want my life back. When? when will it be normal again?
*whimpers*.

Okay! I feel better! Thank you for your patience.

I feel what you're feeling.

I saw a video this morning on the news, of a weather man saying "That is NOT even a real weather term"

Gotta hype the storm!

@LIW I feel for you hon! I have been hauling a 5 gal bucket every morning and night out to the chickens and ducks. I have a heated water bucket, and waterer. There is ice for a foot, all the way around them on the barn floor, from the ducks "splashing" in it.
This morning is was a wonderful -13F.

Can't wait for the heat wave Monday. 32F. Whoo hoo!

Thank you for the sympathy, It's reciprocated. I feel so sorry for my doves, mockingbirds and cardinals who drink from my birdbath every morning and evening, and have for years. They come, they peck at it, but no cigar. They look so "crestfallen" when they leave. (pun attempt.)

Five gallons of water is about 30 lbs. I think. Dang. I'd have to get a wagon.

I blame Al Gore. Not that he's so almighty to make it so, but because this is his vision for our world.

Al, please help us save the freezing iguanas falling from trees in Florida.

The polar bears can wait.

I actually have a sled!



But sometimes it is easier just to carry it, as it gets stuck in the snow. You have to get it packed down good.

Have you looked at the birdbath heaters?

Yeah, seriously the HOTTEST ON RECORD HERE IN SO CALI. LOL sorry, would NEVER live back east again lived there 36 years been through MANY bad winters with up to 70 bellow wind chills back in the early 80s, Yes 70 bellow wind chills.
