I woke to 17 degrees with a breeze here in E.Texas, certainly cut my morning smoke time down.
I reckon it's time for long handles and Carharts my friends.  santa

Strange winter so far. Here in Northen California we had december temps that dropped into the mid 20's at night and never warmed past the mid 40's during the day. I know this pales in comparison to what many of you are experiencing elsewhere, but it's very odd for this region. Now it's January and we're walking around in T shirts with 70 degree sunny afternoons. Again, very strange. Our snowpack up in the Sierras, the source for our annual water supply, is at 8% of normal and the lake, 4th largest in the state, looks like a mud puddle. Not good.

I woke up to -10 F and 25 mph winds. It is cold.

"In addition, all counties in our District have declared red travel warnings, advising roads are closed to all but emergency personnel. Heavy snow, blowing and drifting snow, and sub zero temperatures should be expected on all roadways."

Weird winter for sure.

It's been single digits/near zero with wind chill well below zero lately here on the Maine coast, and this morning, we have fog, light rain and 49 F.  Odd to say the least.

Weather doesn't seem to know what it wants to do.

Woke up to -8 and today's high was only 3-deg F. Not much compared to some of you Brothers up north, but very unusual for this area...

It's 35 right now, and that will likely be the high for the next 66 hours or so. Predictions of 7-10 tonight; I don't think I've personally been in single digit weather since 1987, when I spent a year teaching Cortland, NY! Stay warm, all those affected by this!

Welp, it's got an official name: North American Polar Vortex

Us Californians are only aware of it cause SF played @ GB last night. Go figure.

You stay safe everyone up there!

I gotta respect and feel for you guys that work out in this kind of weather.
I use to work for SPRR as a car man and we loaded container trains at night in the rain and cold but, nothing like these temps of late. Be safe my friend.

will do.
I appreciate the concern Cartaphilus. we are having a late start today, we are starting at nine instead of eight. so hopefully it has warmed up at least a degree or two out.

Well, as always with Texas weather, "if you don't like it wait 15 minutes".
Now it's warming up and raining, almost balmy. 60 degrees today and I had to take
my jacket off to have a bowl on the porch. They say it's going to get warmer too.
I'm not putting the long handles away just yet though, it'll be back with a vengeance come February I bet.

For sure with that Cart as we really haven't had one of those Feb/March "blue norther's'' yet. All that Black Ice on the interstate and power lines down to the ground loaded with 3" of ice, gotta love Texas Weather for sure !!  Twisted Evil Twisted Evil
