High winds and up to 8 inches of snow is headed my way. I hope everyone stays safe and warm. Be careful driving.

Be careful shoveling too.

Not to mention temps at 0 degrees wind chill -10 to -15

My dd is thrilled. 12 days for winter break. Today was the 1st day back and now a 3 day weekend.

Wind Chill -20

Snow since yesterday afternoon 12" and still coming down

It's winter. It's about what we expect around here.

Those of us in the frozen sections of North America are quite envious of those in the sunny south, unless you REALLY REALLY love winter! is a reminder of winter's 47 days!!

...and it's bloody cold here!!! Snowing, too.

It was 81 here around 1pm...

It is now 70 and raining...

Tomorrow's highs should be 55

But it's still way better than piles of snow and ice and wind chill.

@ jo2love:
-20C = -4F

Formula for Conversion:

C x 9/5 + 32 = F

(F - 32) x 5/9 = C

That picture makes me weepy. I just got back from Florida 2 weeks ago and it might as well have been 2 years ago. I am done with this weather.

The snow is a pain, but it's the damn cold that I HATE! Does anyone else feel like the older you get, the more you dislike cold? Hell I'm only 53, but the time I'm 73 (Lord willin) I won't be able to leave my house between November and May.

I would leave the great Midwest for warmer climate in a heartbeat if I could take my family and friends with me.

I ended up extending my Christmas Break, by taking PTO today. The roads were horrible and I have an hour drive...just not worth it and I earn almost one day of PTO per two weeks, so I will accrue those days quickly I may do the same tomorrow, if the roads aren't good...Monday is supposed to be bad, again, so I may end up extending it out even further

Yep. Cold and windy here with snow still coming down.

On the bright side, I have a new and efficient furnace, a 4wd vehicle, a neighbor that plows, a heated mattress pad, and 4 corgis that love to snuggle.

Now that I'm in for the night, it sure is gorgeous out there.

When I have to go out in the morning, the bitching will resume.

South of Boston here. Bitter cold (15 F), very windy and snowing. My area is slated to get 12-15" by mid-morning tomorrow. Fortunately, I can work from home, and I am going to do so,

It's so cold that I just let the dog out to pee and instead of going down the stairs to the yard like he does every single time, he picked a patch of snow on the deck, peed, and ran back inside.

Cold, windy, snowed on and off since NYE, dead battery in a car that has to be moved or risk towing charge and big fine.

Got it moved on time, though, thanks to AAA. Whew!!!

Another reason to live retirement... No where I have to go...I have cat food for the girls, and brownies for me. All is right in my world.

jo2love posted 1/2/2014 19:20 PM

Looking- That pic is beautiful. Thank you for the conversion. I can't remember the last time it was this cold.

I'm home with a huge bag of truffles a friend gave me. DD doesn't like them (how are we related?). Things don't look good for my Sunday check in on the icr Healthy thread.
