The Big Chill

Wed Jan 30, 2019 1:43 pm

I don't think I can remember a day where I saw -60DegF Wind Chills. This is just ridiculous:

I’m actually glad to see it again. It’s been a few decades.
Funny. It only took one pandemic for those who argue endlessly about natural selection to stop believing in natural selection.

My legs still hurt from when I sent my dog outside and the cold gust hit me

No, he actually decided to go outside and play first, which made me have to open the door and brace the cold again and yell at him since I wanted him to return alive

Note that in Chicago staff set fire to the railway sleepers in order to stop the track from frezzing and keep the trains running. How about setting fire to politicians to keep government running???

It is so cold in the upper midwest USA (how cold is it ?) that the US Postal Service is suspending mail delivery in many areas. It is so cold, beer can't be delivered unless in heated vehicles as freezing. It is so cold, crime is down a lot in Chicago, may even see a few days without a murder. It is so cold, you can operate ice roads for trucks on the lakes of Minnesota. It is so cold that even the most hardened homeless persons are seeking shelter. It is so cold, schools are closed.

Seriously, this is a very deadly cold spell and could lead to a higher than normal number of deaths from exposure, broken down vehicles or heating systems, loss of power or running out of heating fuel, some could face very high heating costs that are unaffordable, have to decide to heat or eat.

Maybe direct all their hot air on the switches instead of using fire. Finally get something good from the politicians.

Dogs so goofy sometimes.

Stay safe. Nice and warm here. (Above freezing).

To be fair you can do that in normal winter conditions. Did it back in December when we were up there for Christmas, Ice was already a foot thick. I think folks were driving on that particular lake shortly after thanksgiving this year. (a few minutes north of the twin cities) On the day we were out it was in the upper 30's (F). Had a good game of hockey in light sweatshirts on the lake.

We are back up above zero (1 to be exact) now here is SW Ohio! Cold walk into the office this morning. Supposed to be 55 on Sunday.

No they don't; under Minnesota law a utility can't shut off residential heating between October 15 and April 15 regardless of account status.

I guess this most definitely proves there is no climate change, no extremes, no polar vortex spinning out and about, that is all fake news. :banghead:

There is cold and, then, there is "WHAT THE F***!!!!" cold. I have been in "WHAT THE F***!!!!" cold and it hurts. Not -40 but anything below 0 is "WHAT THE F***!!!" cold IMO.

I hate where we live but not this much. We stay on this side of the Cascades/Sierra for this exact reason.

Please stay safe. Stay warm. Stay hydrated. Take care. I may hate your opinions but please do what you can so we can continue to hate your opinions. That probably did not come out right but I worry. I have family and very close friends in the Midwest.

Reminds me of when John McCain was starting his cancer treatment and told his fellow Senators that he was going to stick around long enough to make them regret all the nice things they'd said about him. :bigthumbsup:

I guess the current local temp of 7°F is warm in comparison. But really, Canada can take their air back now.

I remember in W13/14 in MN the feelslike dropped to -61C. In SK i witnessed 59 below centigrad. It's common, but people forget and social media requires lots of drama.

Extreme indeed and in some places in Australia it is extreme on the other side of the spectrum. Almost a whopping 100°C difference. :shock:
