Baby it's COLD outside!



Well to all the snowbirds who have escaped to the south... Congratulations!!

A week of misery for us starting now... and getting progressively worse!!

wind at 40 mph and higher.
-5 *C to --14*C today alone (23*F -6.8*F)

With the wind chill it will feel like -26*C ... -14*F and that is just today

the expected week is -13C -15C -18C -17C -15C

Fahrenheit is 8.6F 5*F -04F 1.4F 5*F

If there is a wind it will feel a lot colder, however it is warming up at the end of the week!

So if it is cold in AZ or wherever you are, and you have to put on a sweater..
Please remember to be thankful...........

With any luck this will be the 'cold snap' (Yesterday I was out in a light jacket, pretty nice out, but this morning, ( albeit, 5 AM) flurries were felt)

Oh I wish I was in BC now, they are expecting a low of 0*C this week (32*F)

I rode my motorcycle to the park and ride this morning in order to catch the bus. It was a wee bit chilly and my experiment of using the less evil gas burning device and the bus all winter is already getting old.

Do I envy all of you? You betcha!!

the wind blew the snow drifts right into my back stoop and porch, I could hardly get the door open...thenk goodness it was dry snow or I would have been calling for the town maintenance to shovel me out...

However, as snow is a natural insulator I am cosy and warm...for the time being,

Next winter will not find me here for certain, just over the mountains to the west is a much milder climate and I think I will roost there next year,
but right now at this moment... I am jealous of your place and space in the universe....

Send us some of that glorious 'warm air'


Txiceman, that is pretty nearly swimming weather....!!

Off to don my parka mittens abd boots to walk the dogs... one needs a sweater he is so slim! The other is too plump and the cold will help raise her metabolism and she will loose some weight,(ploughing through the snowdrifts won't hurt either.... me or her...

happy trails... keep warm!

Enokie,

I know your pain. We lived north of Toronto for 2 very cold years ...1976 and 1977. That was enough for me and it is back to southeast Texas.

Ken

Expecting light snow tonight.

We canceled plans to head south this year to help with a family medical emergency. We hooked up next to our sons home and will be here until March it looks like. So we will be snow birds in the snow instead of out of the snow.

Its worse in To, the air is damp and goes to the bone....
Here it is dry and you don't feel it the same ....(translation... you're face is flash frozen or ears fingers or toes and you don't notice until you come in from the cold, with luck you leave no parts behind in mitts, or socks....wind is the real killer here and you cannot stay out for long, schools here close on wind temps not air temp. However in To or anywhere east you KNOW you are cold...
Cant fault you for going back to Texas...

I hope the emergency was not serious, and be grateful you are on the right side of the Rockies!! Snow won't stay long. but just in case ...........

Stay warm and have a toddy... medicinal AND good ...
