It's a kin to micro managing isn't it?
I know, and like 5-10 inches of snow in New England? Hardly close the schools for that much in the 70s.
Why does the weather hate our freedoms?
More or less fodder to account for cable news and internet news 24/7. Have to fill up some clickbait to boost ad views. I get "please turn your ad blocker off" at TWC... no, no I won't watch your 30 sec ad for a 15 second segment of what the weather may be like this week..
Get out those aerosol cans and start spraying them!! Bring back regular freon. Fart more outside.
I would like to officially change a very popular saying on TGP.
"Old man yells at bomb cyclone."
I for one like the term. Reminds me of colonoscopy prep.
At the mens room door: "You may not want to go in there for a few minutes. That was a real bomb cyclone."
Datz da bomb
I normally don't have to get my heavy coat out until January, or maybe the very last week of December. It's January 3rd and am already sick of wearing the heavy coat and Docs almost every day for a while now. In fact this morning I thought to myself screw it, I'm wearing my Chucks to work...frozen feet be damned.
The new name makes it colder?
I'm setting my Tele outside without the case for a while
Don't confuse me with facts.
Low cost cryo treatment for strings.
If I was a weather man I'd be saying:
Well folks, we're going to have a Witches Titty come down from Canada with the nipple of the front hitting Detroit and Cleveland
If you changed your avatar just for that post, it was worth it.
I remember right after the Northeastern United States Blizzard of 1978 our house caught fire from a chimney flu leak up near the roof which caused spontaneous combustion of the roof peak. I was around 12 yrs old and we burned truck loads of oak I cut, loaded and split using a Homelite chainsaw. That winter our fires where intense glowing coals all day long in a thermagrate insert. It was toasty warm in that den but the other rooms were cold.
Then at about 2 in the morning of Feb 8th the fire started and my dad was getting us out while he was in his boxers with the corded phone clenched between his head and shoulders and spraying the peak area with a large fire extinguisher. Man what scene.
Later when the insurance company came in to check out the charred remains of the den part of the house they offered to build the den better than before since he effectively helped save the rest of the house. We also learned that the fire truck that showed up was low on water from fighting other fires that night and ran out fighting our fire. Then learned that when the firemen tried to tap the fire hydrant nearby it was frozen so they also commended him for doing his part cause if he didn't our house would've burned completely down.
That was first big snow storm I experienced and will likely never forget it, lol.
Respect the weather, be prepared and ready.
A friend of mine has a theory as to why we're experiencing the arctic polar vortex at this time. (I entertained his theory with some doubt, but it could be valid if there were better science than just "theory" to verify this)
Normally, where is the earth the warmest this time of year? The south Pacific ocean, correct? If warm air expands and equatorial winds circulate northward, could it be that the warm air is pushing the cold arctic air over the top of the globe south from Canada into the United States?
Check Alaska's coastal temperatures before you answer this question, because I think you'll note that, yes, it's warmer in coastal Alaska than it is in central Canada just now.
Bob, this sounds very scientific.
Interesting! <rubs chin thinking>
So... the Canadians are Terrorists now is what I'm getting from this. Sending down weather bombs and all. Am I getting this right? Will we be responding with some "Mutually Assured Destruction"?
You know, this is why the Russians think we are weak. They are sitting around in their underwear drinking coffee and Vodka on the veranda in 5 feet of snow at - 30°F and laughing their asses off at this ridiculousness.
