I guess my thread doesn't count?  Oh well.  :shrug:

Winter Weather 2013/14 - stay warm and safe everyone!



In the middle of a massive storm right now.  Snowed all night last night, snowing all day today, and all night tonight.  Heading outside now to clear the driveway halfway through the storm, because there will be enough snow that it will be hard to clear it all at once.  We'll probably get more than a foot total.

Then, after the snow stops tomorrow morning, it will be bitterly cold.  It's only 8 ºF right now, but tomorrow it will only be 2 ºF at the warmest!  It will then go down to -10 ºF, or maybe -15 ºF at night!  :eek:

I'll report back with how much snow is on the ground so far!  :)  Wish me luck!

I measured 6.5 inches at 2 pm.  It's still snowing steadily.

Had a little trouble with the snow-blower, but managed to get it working.  I normally bundle up so much, that if it's above 25ºF I can actually overheat while I'm running the heavy machine.  This time, it was so cold out (including the windchill) that I had to come inside twice to warm up!  :o

Our blizzard started overnight and is in full swing, with another 24 hours to go.  The good news is that, unlike SFG, we'll get some warmth and sunshine on Saturday.  It's about 15 degrees out there now, but not bad inside despite the high winds.  I think the snow is actually insulating the house.  As long as the power doesn't go out again, I'm fine.  I hope everybody else is.

And it begins ... way too early!  :eek:

Lake-effect snow pummels New York State, closes Thruway

Buffalo and western NY are being hit with mega sized lake effect snow, 4-5 feet of it!  There's waist deep snow, highways closed, and people trapped in their cars on the road.

Huge stretches of the thruway are closed in western NY, and there are no trains running in the west half of the state. The National Guard are on their way to help out, as are crews from firehouses all over the state. They simply can't keep up with clearing the roads, and there are people who have been trapped in their cars for nearly a day. Hopefully with more crews, they can dig some of them out.

Gaahh!

Also, this:

Baby, It's Cold Outside: All 50 States Hit 32 Degrees

Quote

According to the National Weather Service and meteorologist Eric Holthaus, all 50 states hit 32 degrees or lower on Tuesday.

Yep. Even Hawaii, where Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano reaching 13,800 feet above sea level, was below freezing.

It's only mid-November!  Right now it is 20ºF where I am, with lots of wind.  So with wind chill it is 3ºF!!!!  :eek2: :eek3:

That was midnight.  Now, at 9 am, it is 17ºF with a wind chill of 2ºF.  And I have to go out soon.  Maybe it will be warmer in an hour!  :o

After hearing about the devastation of the tornado that hit Oklahoma this week I think its time for a sound off.

This thread is for all of us who live in areas that are hit by severe weather of any sort.

Sound off, let us know that you and your loved ones are ok. Share your stories
