    No, not the group.

    It was cold here this morning. !!

    Here is a pic at Mackeral Cove, Jamestown RI USA this morning zip 02835

    Water temp is 38F
    Air temp -4F

    Note the 'smoke on the water' effect from water
    vapor on the surface. This usually is only
    visible once a year on Narragansett Bay, as when
    the water cools the effect disappears. Some years
    it does not occur at all. This is the first time
    I have been able to get a picture of this effect.
    I have been meaning to photograph the phenomenon
    for 15 years.

    Brrrrrrrr :D

    It had better definition.
  3. Yeah. Down here on the other side of the bridge, it's 1 degree, with a wind chill of -17!!! But, its really cool to see the Narrow River frozen.

    Thanks Thor you just gave me a new desktop :D

    as far as temperature, it's pretty damn cold right now in Boston.

    my heater is on, but these baseboard heaters rather, they DON'T blow, so they are pretty inefficient.

    I'm going to get one of those Vornado heater/fans I've used 'em before THAT's how a heater should be.

    either way, it's about 10ºF

    With a pretty heavy windchill

    Last night the wind was gnarly, very very heavy, my jewels were terrified just hearing it. :eek: :rolleyes: :p

    -34 C (-29 F) with the wind...

    -17 C (1 F) without.

    This is by far the warmest day we've had this week. The coldest it got (with wind chill) was about -45 C (-49 F). :meh:

    Wait, you mean "smoke on the water" is an actual phenomenon? I know of a place in Alabama where it happens every single morning during Autumn and Winter. I always thought it was just an ordinary occurence.
  11. Up here in Northern Ontario we just got past a couple weeks of -47C weather(Including windchill)

    Its supposed to break this week though and only be -28C.

    Hey, you'll get used to it. You will appreciate
    the spring and fall in NE even more now.

    Gets a bit windy up on Newbury Street. Be sure
    you come down to the Newport RI area when it
    warms up, this area can really rock.

    And offer some nice lady you have met the chance to cuddle and warm up. hehe

    Which is why it is in OT, that should have been
    a dead giveaway!

    Nice pic of the Jazzbo in the 'hood!

    I have a pic of the scantily clad vixen arising
    out of the frigid waters, but I can't post it
    here for fear of arousing the baser instincts of
    our teenage bass brethren!

    What you can't see is that the air is very dry,
    i.e. no fog, and the wind is blowing 20-30 knots
    across the water. In June, fog is prevalent here,
    but water vapor visibly arising from cold water
    is very rare!

    I understand that indoor sports are popular in
    lovely North Bay, [ I have been there ...] at
    this time of year, and the there is a spike in
    the birth rate expected every fall.

    Now go get warm!

    Currently sitting at 66 degrees fahrenheit. I've been at the opposite end of the spectrum though. When I lived in Northern China it would get down to -30 fahrenheit without windchill and that year was actually considered a "warm winter."

    Use the search button and bring and old one back.
    And if there isn't a relevant thread, start a new one. If you have a specific recording to discuss,
    the 'Recordings', other wise MISC [ music related ]. There's your chance to talk some Fusion!
  19. You want terrible weather? Try 40 degrees and raining!! For days on end. That's called Oregon winter. This little bit with the snow and ice was a fluke. Right now it's about 44, drizzleing, and with a 15 mph east wind. NOT nice. Yuck.:spit:

    Rock on
