Default Baby, It's Cold Outside!

Well, it's not too cold here, but I know some of y'all live up north, and apparently it is going to be really cold this week. Good luck fellas, and stay warm.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

My guess it's going to be cold here because they closed schools for tomorrow in two Parishes just east of us about 50-60 miles. If they're closing schools for expected icing of roads in outlying areas I doubt we're going to be sunny and warm.

Dang, I'd trade a cold streak for a little rain and moisture around here. Just poured out maybe 10 bucks of water onto the desert back yard. Most of it will trickle down into the aquafer so they can sell it to me again. Used to have snow her, but not for the past few years. That's life on the edge of the Mojave Desert.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Thank you, Mike...not as bad here as the "real Northerners" but we usually get a couple of weeks of cold weather and then it starts to warm up in February.

So it's all a "mind over matter" issue...if you don't mind it, it doesn't matter...

Now @Stick486 , however, hasn't gotten winter yet...

We pretty much haven't up here on the west side of the Rockies either. It was beautiful today and most of my yard is bare. I hear the est side of the Rockies is another story.

We’re as good as it gets here . I cannot remember a better January in living memory . Very mild considering the time of year , and no end in sight yet . Things can change rapidly though.

The ski hills have the least amount of snow I’ve ever seen,but they seem to be getting by.

Well I just looked again and I see next Wednesday is suppose to get cold . Guess it had to get cold sooner or later

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

In the morning in Dallas it is supposed to be in the lower 30's with 20+ MPH winds so wind chills will be in the upper teens. Looks like Michigan temps will be in the lower teens with wind chills around ZERO................

For us in the US 40C is meaningless. It converts to 104F. I live in East Texas and we usually get around the 100F for the whole month of August. Being down under you get the opposite of what we get. Here we seldom get snow but they are predicting a wintery mix and for us that is a disaster because unlike our northern neighbors we are not built or prepared for such cold conditions. People further north build their houses to keep the utilities from freezing and insulate better to keep the cold wind out.

I have been on a street corner in Toronto in January and was the coldest I have ever been. It was way below freezing and the wind howling. I had on thermal underware, two pairs of pants a coat and a wool over coat gloves and a hat and was still cold.

I cannot understand why people ever settled in such environments but folks in the far north wonder why we live where it gets 100F. To each his own.

Keep Warm in the US and have a nice cold beer down under and keep the fan running.

In the DC Metro area, rain overnight transitioning to snow about 06:00. Because of rain, they can't pre-treat the roads with brine. Then the temperature will be dropping to single digits (įF) by Wednesday. Something about warm air falling down from Canada I expect a lot of people will be crashing around with wild abandon.

Makes me happy that I'm not in the commuting rat-race any more. I'll be in the workshop doing estimating for the next project, and watching the flakes fall.
