Well we have no hurricanes or tsunami's, earthquakes and just a few isolated Tornado's (a couple that cost live's in the last 25 years .....) so can't complian too much (albiet human nature and all ......)

What we do excel at is Winter : Outside today right now -25 Celcius and dropping to -30 ish - winds and blowing snow - with windchill we hit the magic -40 where the Celsius and Fahrenheit scales meet - no conversion required ....brrrrrrrrrr - may not see the outside world today .......

Nice ....the gig I have now I work from the 'home office" so the Sun can seen through my office Window. I have spent many winters though as I am sure you have (and many others) driving to work in the dark and comming home in the dark where the the Sun was a vicious rumor :rolleyes:

We are planning a weekend getway to Laughlin (Baby Vegas) in Feb - my Dad is a snowbird (AZ) so he will meet us there - hoping to "feel" the Sun for a few days then with a couple of rounds of golf. Just gotta get through this week .....gonna be a balmy -16 on Sunday ......really not that bad (pretty dry here - with Humidity the freeking air would freeze)

Yeah it was deathly cold today. And plus 8 out in the east coast! *shakes fist in their general direction* AH well I guess they deserve it after all the natural disasters they've been through.

This is Gods revenge for our December though eh?

I think the thing you guys forget, is that we stay this temp for weeks, if not months! Your temp will fluctuate while ours doesn't. You have become spoiled. :canttalk: ;)

I can't even go out today, I'm worried I'll crack the rad!

I'm not sure how being south of 49 affects the weather?

That makes sense! ;) Now I know why we have higher gas prices (81.9 up from 76.9 yesterday!) and colder weather, IT'S THE LIBERALS FAULT!!! :lildevil:

He gave the West the "finger" while on the train going back east, and if i recall correctly, it was over the grain farmers protesting the fact that down east the farmers get more per bushell.

Man, I hope you guys don't get another bad storm! It's all you need. :helpless:

God I'm so sick of this weather, it's getting to me this year. I get these major sinus pressure headaches EVERYTIME the barometer changes, plus arthritis from this crap.

Yep - it's Deep freeze time .....I get weekly updates from my 'SnowBird' Dad in Az and his daily golf scores. Cold enough I almost lost two fingers pluggin in the Caddy (time outside without gloves < 5 mins) for a couple hours before I crankerd her over - she cranked and whined just like her driver , but stared ......

This is not unprecedented or unexpected. I can now tell you every window in the house that needs to be re-sealed (my keen eye can detect the 3 inches of ice on the inside !)

We usually get a few weeks of this scattered over a couple of months - it is amazing though to listen and watch the 'cabin fever' take over most people after 3 or 4 days in a row ...(see the not unprecedented or unexpected comment) .....2 deer hit this morning on a major comuter route (YellowHead) -even the animals are running for cover !

I think it's getting to me (cabin fever) because my fiance is away! :crybaby: Then again, I guess I should enjoy the peace and quiet for a change.
