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

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!

So....here is a reminder of winter's escape....in 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.

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.

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.

I am DONE with winter!!!! However it's not done with me. It was 3 this morning when I got up, and now they are forcasting snow, and not just a little.
6-12" starting tomorrow night. This will seriously bring St. Louis to a screeching halt. Plus after that's done we get to see temps lower than they have been since I have had kids. Calling for -5 to -10 for lows, and a HIGH of 0. Yes you read that right 0.

I HATE BEING COLD!!!!! It makes my bones hurt.

I plan to get a roast, some movies, and a box of wine. I only hope my kids can behave and treat each other kindly for the next 3 days. At this point I think Christmas break will be extended through Wed. YIKES!!!!

Single digits here now, teens was the high today. Wind chill in the -5 range.

Walked to the car earlier today with the kids. Had recently taken a shower, didn't realize all my hair wasn't dry, and it froze walking to the car!

Kids thought it was hilarious!

Eastern Canada, we just made it through the snowpocolypse..lol.

Everything shut down at 1 pm (should never have opened). Buses stopped running, police pulled off the roads. You could not see a few feet in front of you. I shoved a ton of snow and the roads are still a mess today. A friend of mine was stuck at work because the buses shut down, so she had to stay in a hotel. It was a complete mess.

The high Tuesday is supposed to be somewhere around -15 here, with a wind chill of -50. Right now, we have 9 inches of snow not he ground with a predicted 8-14 more throughout the day and winds picking up. Right now it's warm-ish though. Right around 30.

It's probably about time. The last few years we've had very mild winters.

We're under a hard freeze for the next two days...20 is the low tonight and tomorrow night. The Mayor and our local council members are basically telling us all to not leave our homes since we're idiots and don't know what to do in the cold weather

I put an extra blanket in stray kitty's house on the front porch...I hope she'll be ok.

Made it through storm Hercules okay (we got about 4-5" here in central PA), and here comes Ion. It's 27-degrees now, supposed to warm up tonight to 40 by morning then drop to 5 by tomorrow night. So obviously going out during the night tonight, dancing around in above-freezing temps, then crawling back under the heated blanket tomorrow is the way to go.

This is why I am so eager to move. I really do despise all this cold more and more every year...

jrc, We went to the store, on Friday, before the storm made it's way to us. Since then, we've gone through two and a half gallons of milk and an entire loaf of bread (I've had to make two additional trips to the store). I'm not sure why we are going through this stuff faster than usual (a gallon of milk and loaf of bread usually last a week) I ended up getting buns, today, when I ran to the store (early into the storm) b/c the store was out of bread If these people want bread, buns are just going to have to do until I can get another loaf of bread

Maybe because your home more than you would be normally so you're eating more at home?

Good news: I spoke with my neighbor's wife, and he was just finishing up clearing my 3400 foot driveway. So when I fly home tomorrow, I should be able to get into the farm.

It took him over 2 hours on his tractor, with temperatures near zero. I'm pretty sure it has a heated cab, but still... He's pushing 70 years old.

Bad news: When I asked "Can I give you something for this?" She told me "whatever you think it's worth."

Now I have to come up with a number. Too little, and they won't do it again. Don't want to pay too much, what with my upcoming unemployment.

Oh well. I suppose I could have worse problems.


Take care of yourself. There's a great future out there. It won't come to you; you have to go to it.

MissesJai - Can you please send a little of that warmth up north? I hope spring gets here soon.

TrustedHer- That was so nice of your neighbor.

Hey TH My H plowed on our old cub for about 3 hours on Sunday evening, and then got it stuck. We had to use the bigger H to pull it out, this was not in a heated cab, these are real old tractors. But hey Waders for Duck hunting are not only water proof, but keep you dang warm.

My point is this. Sorry ADD bad today.....
Most people who own these toys, actually enjoy getting out and doing it. My H wouldn't want any more cash than what it cost him in fuel to do a driveway for a neighbor. So I would say somewhere around $20-$30, but what he really would like would be a tray of brownies, or something like that. So hit a grocery on your way home, and whip up a batch. Most folks just want a heart felt thank you.

BTW the roads here in good ole St. Lou are still pretty bad.
