Tornado Watch until 12 am
That top picture is what it is like here. Though in fairness, we really don't have the equipment to handle it. It's easier to shut things down for a day or two and let things warm up again. I still chuckle about it though.
This reporter's temperature gauge for when it was really cold out.
Teeth Hurt Cold:
When you step outside and open your mouth the cold hurts your teeth. That’s pretty cold, and it rarely occurs unless the temperatures drop into the teens.
Frozen Nose Hair Cold:
This is a step colder than Teeth Hurt Cold in that, when you take a breath your nose hairs bristle and stiffen as they pathetically attempt to shield your lungs from the shock of the bitter-cold, yet life-sustaining air.
Lung Stab Cold:
This is the coldest of the cold. Lung Stab cold happens when upon your first step outside your lungs cry out with their first breath “The cold is stabbing me!”
One of the suburbs of my great City received 9 inches in 24 hours. :-c:not:
I still have some landscaping stuff I wanted to get done, looks like I will be planting trees in cold ground.
Sure it snowed about 5 inches yesterday, but at least I got to go x-country skiing with my son last night.
It was 12º this morning. I don't recall it being this cold this early in a long time.
I still managed to get in a 12 mile run (a mile for each degree?) and only had to stop to scrape the frost and ice off of my scarf twice.
Wow, with that thing on your forehead, are you part of the Borg invasion?
WTF? That is awesome! Break out the snowshoes!
Well as 80s rock band Cinderella would say, "It's gonna be a long cold winter...a long cold winter without your love."
We've had some occasional flurries here in Chicagoland and a light dusting on Saturday, but nothing like what's been seen in points north and east of here. However, it's been really cold. Highs in the teens, lows in the single digits the past few days. Feels more like January. It's supposed to warm up over the weekend and we could see freezing rain on Saturday before it changes over to all rain. There's nothing I hate more than freezing rain. So incredibly dangerous.
Normally, lake effect snow bands are fairly narrow and oscillate north and south, spreading their misery further but lessening snow amount, as the winds creating them shift as systems move by. This band, though, is not only very wide, it's shown only slight north-south movement since about 11 pm last night. Just looking at weather radar now, it appears that this band has begun sinking southward a little bit so that most of Buffalo and its northern suburbs are clear of it right now as is the I-90 from east of Clarence, NY.
All I can say is, "better them than us".
