Is that the light at the end of the tunnel? (O.T. Thread)

Recommended Posts

Wow it’s supposed to be cold tomorrow. For real?  It’s damned winter. I’ve been thru this my entire life. Sensationalism at its best.

If Bill Murray were standing in the corner eavesdropping on this post, then you happened to catch him out of the corner of your eye and turned to him suddenly, would he make a sound?

Yeah man, folks are acting like our lives are going to be flipped upside down.

Is it cold?  Supposedly, but I haven’t been outside and it’s still 68 in my house.

Luckily I haven’t frozen to death yet.

Technically you can’t been thru this your entire becuase it has only been this cold like this 5 times or so over the past 30years. So you have been through winter your whole life but this extreme cold, you have only experienced it a few times

I’m hoping for another “cold/snow” day tomorrow. There’s a cold warning until 1:00 PM tomorrow. Think of the children for crying out loud!

The difference as it impacts your life is next to nothing though.

-15, -10, 0, 5, whatever, it’s cold.  You’re not spending much time outside unless absolutely necessary, you need to dress accordingly, hit the remote start a few minutes earlier....

I think his point about news/weather stations whipping everyone up with the sensationalism is legit imo.

Eat my shorts bro, the little one was sick yesterday and Monday and now he’s off today.

He needs to go to school and get out of the house tomorrow.

Kinda disappointed in the cold. Didn’t seem much different than any other day. I was actually kind of hyped for it.

We're already cancelled for tomorrow too.  

I brought home everything that I need to work on, haven't looked at it yet.  Doing a little house cleaning, and watching "The Americans."

 

This is our 5th weather day of the year, so now, if any more are missed, the kids have online assignments that they must complete in lieu of the next possible three days.

Probably going to take a nap in a little while.

Nope. I’ve seen temperatures like this my whole life. Pretty easy concept. 😉

This. Was watching the news last night and the way they were talking sounded like if you go out it would mean immediate death. Also said we haven’t seen this severe cold in like 20 years. Which is bs we have negative temps every year. 🥶

Oh well, overnight rant over.

The last time we had a DAYTIME HIGH below zero was 25 years ago:  1994 (-3)

thats from fox8. We see negative temps during the overnight and lows but rarely negative temps for highs like we currently are seeing

Also

Only 4 of the last 20 winters have had wind chills at or below -20: (2015, 2014, 2009, 1999)

Only 5 of the last 35 winters have had wind chills at or below -30: (2014, 2009, 1994, 1990, 1984)
