    the weather this year has completely annihilated any trust I had in any kind of global weather-time patterns. I firmly believe its just weather. Crazy weather, for sure, but theres probably no reason to say we're headed for fifty years of this or that.
  3. Last night it was around -20 F. It's still -8 right now with a high temp of 4 for the day. Gotta love Grand Forks....

    2nd coldest city in the US!

    It was -28 here last night with a wind chill of -42...one of my bands played a birthday party for the guitar player's kid in his garage which is our rehearsal space (heated floors, insulated, etc.). There were a few smokers who stepped outside for a cigarette on occasion...most of them didn't even put a jacket on.

    Funny thing was that a neighbor called the cops to complain about the noise...I'm still trying to figure out how the volume penetrated the insulated walls of the garage plus the neighbor's house with enough intensity to disturb anyone... :confused:

    Yeah...well...you just wait until it's the middle of summer and it's 110 in Sactown and WE get to brag about how tough WE are!!! That'll show you...:cool:

    Actually, I hate the heat :bag:
  19. This past summer we had a spell of temps on the 90s with dew points in the upper 70s. We get it coming and going around here. But at least we don't do hurricanes or major earthquakes!

    It is 45F here today and I can not get warm. It is also a very damp cold cause I am near the beach.
