Feel sorry for you guys. Watching the weather channel right now, and all the highways are closed for the blizzard, massive snow, etc. You should come and live further north. It's only -23 here and pretty decent outside... can't feel the wind through all these trees. We got a couple feet of snow in the last few months, so sent some south.

If we dream and pray hard enough, it might all shift and head for Iowa.

It's not that cold here today just -1 but it's SNOWING again. Suppose to get up to 15cm today. I've really had enough of this white crap. :lol: What's even more depressing is I have no ticker so I can't even count down how many days until PV and getting to PV this year looking very bleak so far.

Cold in the Windy City

Post by lanhawk » Thu Jan 11, 2007 3:28 am

Its about 10 degrees here, but no snow, we haven't had any significant amount of snow all season. Nothing like feeling cold and looking at frozen ground. Just counting the days... :wink:

Oh woe is me!! Again this morning it's really, really cold out - minus 36 but the wind chill is even worse than yesterday - it's minus 50 out there right now!! [cold] I am having a hard time convincing myself to get my butt out the door to go to work. At least the sun will shine today.

I feel for those of you getting dumped on with all that snow. At least we don't have to shovel - it's even too cold to snow!!

Stay warm everyone!!

Oh woe is me! For the first time since I got it, my early 90's chrysler work van did not start this morning. It has NEVER been plugged in in it's life, and has always started (always just out on the street), but this morning /today we are hit with cold that with windchill is in the -50's so it decided to not even crank over. The other two vehicles we have (not plugged in either) started, but then did not want to move, and it was just to cold to sit on that frozen seat. Took half an hour to coax them into gear. Even dreaming/fantasizing, whatever about PV right now ain't gonna change the mindset around here.

I know what you mean about frozen car seats! Nothing can be happy about having to move in these windchills - especially me! But we are a stubborn, hardy bunch - we actually bbq'ed last night out in our friend's gazebo. Took forever - had to keep bringing the tank in from the cold to warm it up in order to keep the propane flowing - but we just won't give in to this cold!!

Bretta - in 47 more days we will be in PV! Not really counting though!! :lol:
