I've never bought a ball gown in my life. This is a 'masked' ball and all attendees have to wear masks. This should be interesting.

In PA when the snow starts coming down, the elderly jump in their old cars with studded snow tires and completely buy out the grocery stores of bread, milk, and toilet paper!

So, that's $32,000 to move back! As someone that started a career with B of A, a B of A promise was something to believe in, but it's a changed world. If APG could only see what has happened to his bank!

My children have never experienced a "quality" snow. I also prefer the heat, so I am whining about this 30/40 degree weather! I couldn't brave the temps up North, but I do wish that we could have a decent snow (not ice)so my kids could at least pull out the trash can lids to slide on and build a real snowman instead of having to use all of the snow that fell in the yard, mixed with leaves and mud, to make a snow lump with a hat

Sounds like something that would follow... You might be a redneck if....

I can understand Don! My trip to San Diego is now complete! What an amazing city, but it was a major shock to my body to go from mid 60's to below 20 and snowing! I would take mid 60's over below 20's any day!

A beach in the USA
In VA Beach yesterday the weathermen (who are ALWAYS SOOO RELIABLE) said they we may get rain, freezing rain, sleet or snow. With a forecast like that they never worry about being accurate. So the afternoon went something like this:

At 4:45 everyone at the bank was collectively breaking out their phone tree, just in case.

At 5:15 on my way home, I begin to see something that looks suspiciously like snow.

At 5:30, the radio is interviewing someone from the Dept of Transportation about how soon the salt trucks will run.

At 6:00 I walk in (luckily I missed the bridge lift with the striper fishermen heading out) to hear that the local community colleges had cancelled evening classes.

I don't think I stopped laughing for 15 minutes!

But alas, the weathermen were right. We got snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain, in that order.

To LMoore: BTW, you might be redneck if...you've ever peed your name in the snow!!

Dawnie,

We should explain to those not familiar with the sub-zero temps that when you reach -30 or so you can not tell the difference between -35 and -90 degrees. You have to judge by how fast your bare fingers turn black.

And a cool trick is to take a cup of boiling water and throw it into the air. It never hits the ground, just a massive steam cloud.

A better term might be "gliding", or more likely "plunging"

0 degrees, Alaskans add a sweater to their outdoor gear





At 0 degrees and below
- Texans would probably have on multiple layers of sweaters
- thermal socks and underwear (under another pair of pants)
- a ski mask and gloves, and
- a pair of boots (regular ones, our bunnies don't wear boots )

and even more is added if we go outside!

I hear you. I'm the security person while my co-worker is the compliance person and all I hear is BSA, HMDA, CRA, etc. I just figured she messed up the alphabet. I remember the days when "A" came first rather than after everything.

True, but you still have to go all the way out to your car to do that!

FINALLY ABOVE the gnat line
I with you on that one, LMoore! I've never lived more than 50 miles north of the Florida state Line and have never experienced temps lower than 15 degrees(and that not very often)! Although, I believe it will be colder here tonight at 26 degrees than it will be for Dawnie with Alaska's Heat Wave

People in New England sunbathe.

40 above: Italian & English cars won`t start.
People in New England drive with the windows down.

32 above: Distilled water freezes.
Moosehead Lake`s water gets thicker.

20 above: Floridians don coats, thermal underwear, gloves, wool hats.
People in New England throw on a flannel shirt.

15 above: New York landlords finally turn up the heat.
People in New England have the last cookout before it gets cold.

0: People in Miami all die...
New Englanders close the windows

10 below: Californians fly away to Mexico.
People in New England get out their winter coats

25 below: Hollywood disintegrates.
The Girl Scouts in New England are selling cookies door to door.

40 below: Washington D.C. runs out of hot air.
People in New England let the dogs sleep indoors

100 below: Santa Claus abandons the North Pole.
New Englanders get frustrated because they can`t start the "kah".

460 below: ALL atomic motion stops (absolute zero on the Kelvin scale).
People in New England start saying..."Cold `nuff for ya?"

500 below: Hell freezes over.
New England Patriots win the Super Bowl.

(I actually saw this before the Superbowl last year - there were a LOT of comments afterward about it being very cold in a very warm place!)

What are some of the least bright ideas you have witnessed someone do in bad winter weather?


One of my favorites is; when overnight it hit -15 degrees and a friend of mine had ice on their windshield and instead of scraping it they decide to melt it with hot water.

Ever see a windshield crack and pop without any impact?

On the slope (where we get all that lovely oil Grist) it's a life threating experience to ummm, how to say this in a BOL appropriate context....pee in the winD?

Now Andy and Dan..remember, it's ice fishing now, so bring your bunny boots! (our bunnies always protect their feet) My eggnog will fortify you for the trip, but we can always work on your stash after we finish with the "protein drink" (a fancy name to make eggnog seem healthy).

I have seen a windshield pop and crackle. It's something the cheechakos (newbies to Alaska) do.

My first year I did two funny things. The first...after a very deep snow, the world was white and lovely and those beautiful banks of snow just called out to me and a close friend to fall backwards into to make snow angels. Oh it would have been lovely....except the snow freezes solid here. We didn't make a dent but considered going to the hospital for possible concussions.

Later that year I noticed the car wash finally didn't have a line! MIRACLE in Alaska! So I happily paid my $20 bucks to the laughing attendant and got the "works". The same silly buddy was with me. We were going back to get her car and when we got to the condo surprise suprise...the doors wouldn't open. NONE of them! See umm when it's -25 and you have your car washed...it freezes solid. We had to sit in the garage and thaw out for half an hour before we could even unroll the windows and crawl out. (door open on the garage..we're stupid but not that stupid).

Let this be a lesson to you newbies to snow!

I now listen to cheechakos tell stories like this and pretend it never happened to me!
