Right now, at 22 F with 20+ winds, it is warmer than it will be at any point tomorrow.

Yes, I know, small potatoes compared to the Mid West.

We received an emergency notice on our phones last night telling everybody to turn down their thermostats to 65 degrees because of a possible gas shortage due to everybody cranking up the heat in this sub-antarctic weather

It's supposed to be back above freezing by the end of the weekend.  Very welcome, but seems impossible.

It's supposedly going to be near 50 degrees some point next week. That is a change of almost 100 degrees within a week. Crazy

Here is the story about how in Chicago they are just lighting the train tracks on fire to keep the trains moving

Of course now I want @melraz09 to come in and drop some train knowledge on our asses

Like - has he gotten to drive on train tracks that were on fire?

Dang. Never seen anything like that. We have some propane hooked up that burns something like a pilot light on certain places here, but that stuff is nuts.

That's what happens when it's 4 degrees and snowy/icy one week and 60 the next.

This is how people who live in the western part of Washington state react to snow. Every single store is like this. You'd think it was the end times and we were never going to get sun again. And don't get me started on the drivers.....

I'm so glad I don't have kids right now.

Schools in basically the entire state had either 7 or 8 days cancelled out of the last two weeks because of either extreme cold, heavy snow, or freezing rain.

The rare delayed open + early dismissal for work today. (I was off)

given parts of Hartford County already have 6+ inches today maybe over 9 tonight, what will they do for tomorrow (already 1 hr delay announced)?

They still haven't plowed the side street I live on. Driving to work this morning and getting back home was an adventure.

After having our normal, relatively mild, winter here in Spokane, we started getting snow a few days ago.  We now have about 16-18" on the ground.  We are forecast to have snow 10 more times in the next 2 weeks.  Yay.
