I've had to work outside when the wind chill was -25 degrees, but I was probably 15 years younger then. I've also camped out in tents about 20+ years ago when the temp was 10 below, I survived but don't ask me to do it again. LOL!

The forecast for Monday here is a daytime high of -4!

 

Now the low on Monday is forecast for -11.  Tuesday's highs is -1, Low of -1, so it's just gonna sit there at for 24 hours...that's ridiculous!  I'm O.K. with that kinda of nonsense if I'm in say North Dakota, but that mighty cold for SW Pennsylvania.

Did they issue an emergency cloud alert and urge people to stay indoors until the danger has passed?   :lol:

Oh yes they did!

 

I called my brother in law who lives in Antioch just to goad him a bit. He called me names I haven't heard since I was aboard ship...................................

More of that "white stuff" comin' on Saturday. Oh boy, oh joy, I can hardly wait. Yeah, right.

 

 

 

"White Stuff" here ~ in weather terms ~ is that cloud Agent G saw yesterday.     (It has floated down our way today.)

 

 

 

In commerce terms, the same phrase refers to a large clandestine industry that passes through here on the sand freeways . . . but you knew that.

PS:   I know you're just anxiously awaiting this newsflash ~ it's been in the low- to mid-70s all week and the forecast for the next week is a cooling trend - 68 to 72.

 

And, we gotta keep shoveling sunshine.

Oh Marshall I know all those places.

 

Lots of Ozark vacations and deer hunting in and around Cabool in Texas county.

 

That will be awfully pretty, but awfully hard to work in.

Bitter cold and half foot of snow in the Philadelphia suburbs. It's full beard weather.
Enjoying it. We all had a snow day today, my daughters are home from college. We camped out in living room last night and watched movies. Today is a Risk tournament.

Sounds too cold for a swim.  I quit using my pool for the season when the water temp dips below 75.

You'd never survive in Pennsylvania.  My pool sits in a private spot in the woods. It gets little direct sunlight. It has an electric cover that we use nightly and during the week when we're not using it to keep leaves and critters out.  The only way it ever hits 75 is from the heater!

Yeah..I use mine from late May to early October...I like it in the mid summer when the water temp is 92-95..

No polar bears here yet... we have deer,  a fox and most recently a lost sheep.

This guy probably escaped from a local farm or nativity scene.  Cops say he's been out there a few weeks.  My neighborhood email chain gives daily sightings.  Nobody has caught him yet.
