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

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.

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)?

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.

Be sure to spare a thought for Mozambique.   They're about to get crushed by a second powerful cyclone within the last 6 weeks.  

We get hit by hurricanes all the time, but we have actual infrastructure... over there.   Oh man, there's about to be a gigantic humanitarian crisis.

This weather is awesome! It's been too hot and sticky all day and night, and now there's a massive thunderstorm going on. Lightning every five seconds! It's 2 AM!

Summer thunderstorms are really cool unless you live in the high desert like I do. That shit hits the ground here, by that shit I mean the lightning not the rain which is welcome, the lightning, not so much.
