    With the impending storm and cold weather I hope everybody has a place to be and rides it out safely .

    Expecting 8" of snow and several days of subzero with windchills of 30 below .

    Had to go to the store anyway , but it was absolutely nuts. They were out of shopping carts if that's any kind if description.

    I also made it to the liquor store and got some nice anejo tequila .

    Windchill is supposed to be almost -50 when I head to work on monday morning. Should be a blast.
  5. I think Monday is projected to be -40. The news was telling people how to deal with the cold. I suppose that's appropriate since Nebraskans forget how to drive in the snow every time it snows.

    I don't get all the hub bub. It's supposed to snow, like maybe 10 inches, and then it's gonna get cold as hell.

    Why back in the mid mineteen seventies they just called this kind of stuff winter. I had to walk to school. 5 miles each way. Barefoot! But we didn't complain, oh no........

    Sounds like the tornado or hurricane runs on the local grocery stores. We are (usually) about to be out of power for a few days and everyone stocks up on bread and milk. it's always the first item(s) to be snapped up in any local weather panic. I've actually seen people with carts loaded to the brim with nothing but milk and bread. Go figure.

    Actually, I don't think there is any rhyme or reason to the herd when it panics.

    Supposed to be a high of 19 first of the week with a chance of an ice storm here in the Birmingham area. Can't wait to hit the grocery store tomorrow for a few gallons of milk and 4 or 5 loaves of bread. :D

    It's currently -36 with a -50 wind chill here. That translates to -33F and -58F.

    I fortunately get the best of both worlds. I live in Indianapolis and I get to fly to Minneapolis later this week. I will admit Indy gets cold and snowy at times but the coldest I've ever been was in Minneapolis a couple years ago. Literally thought my face was frozen after walking about two blocks. Everybody stay warm and safe!!

    I live in south eastern Michigan and I haven't seen this much "winter" in years. The last number of years has been very glitchy as far as winter goes. Last winter for example, I didn't have to snow shovel once! All we got was a few mild dustings and that was it. Not that I'm complaining, but I remember as a kid and up until around 1994 when winter WAS winter. Since then it's really been "who knows what we're getting this year" kind of attitude concerning the season. This year I've had to snow shovel three times already! Quite a differance from last year!

    Yeah, I went to the grocery store yesterday (as I always do on Saturdays) and couldn't believe the lines at the checkout. Honestly....I knew we were suppose to get snow but had no idea how much until I asked someone. That explained the crowd. They said we're forecasted to getting 8 to 12 inches.

    I just looked outside. We've got about 4 to 5 inches and it's barely, barely coming down now. Don't know if more is coming or not.
