It's a crisp -33 degrees right now, but no wind, thank goodness, so it actually only feels -33.


#12, that made me laugh hysterically grin

60 years ago, when there were no buses taking you to school rather than walking 20 minutes, we had to walk in 4 foot drifts, uphill in both directions to get to school. and there were no such things as snow days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My heart goes out to all of you that are dealing with such cold weather. We are in the low 80's here and are projected to stay this warm for a while. Lots of winter visitors are here to spend the winter and I'm sure they are all glad to be here instead of wherever they originally came from.

Stay warm everybody!

-14 when I went to work this morning. The cold made me lose tire pressure when my car sat outside this morning.

Garage was frozen shut, but it looked really cool when I finally opened it, with steam pouring out.

Wind chill is a big crock, so I don't listen to it. This will be the first time that I can remember it not getting above 0 (then again, I didn't really pay attention to weather when I didn't work everyday).

Actually my husband did walk a mile in the snow uphill to catch the bus to school. Needless to say in the middle of winter he missed a lot of school.

That's okay, when we moved to ID they thought it was funny to have a plug hanging from the front of the car and thought it was hilarious that you had to 'plug the car in'.

Well, actually it is -4 now. How low can it go? I'm really glad we have a wood burner along with our regular electic heat.

-12 with wind chills of -25. Needless to say all of the schools are closed. The good news is that we didn't get any of the snow that was predicted.

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
What part of Georgia are you in, OPS? Our temps are in the 20' with a wind chill of 10 degrees. They did say we have a chance of snow/sleet Sunday night here in SW GA. Much as I would love to see snow, I would hate for it to happen while Kid Wonder is at Disney World this weekend with our church's youth group.
