Title: Snow !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and cold !!!!!!!
Post by: jwkelly on January 04, 2018, 10:19:23 pm
It almost killed me today,it was light and fluffy,easy to move,but once my gloves got wet then my hands started to freeze,threw down my shovel and hastened to get inside ,with my gloves off and hands freezing  wet and numb they almost froze to the doorknob.Called it a day after that.

It is definitely cold. Now we are dealing with the winds. They are brutal.

I don't mind the cold in and of itself so much because I have long underwear and a coat built for climbing Mount Everest. But the wind is a real bummer - you have to cover your entire face with a scarf too to deal with that.

I agree. It's the wind factor that's more of a hindrance.

Yup .. Had the snow and  wind yesterday as well.  Still got the cold and the wind but at least no more snow.

I know there is no comparison but even in central florida it is cold by our standards.  Online said it was 29 this morning and that is too darn cold for me.  Well you guys stay inside and warm if you can.   8)

Yes, my hands became way too cold walking from the car to the door of a nursing home where I was visiting a former neighbor.

It hurt so much, I could barely get my gloves off.

Stay warm folks! Don't assume you are strong enough to withstand frostbite temps It is wicked cold out there. We are all vulnerable.

I stayed inside and looked out the window at my hubby shoveling snow and a neighbor stuck sideways in the street.  Praying this cold ends soon because I'm a warm weather person.

I live in Georgia, so we don't really have a ton of snow where you have to shovel it much. If we have snow at all, it generally dissipates within a day or two. It might be different in the Georgia mountains, I don't know.

When I was a kid in Illinois, though, we'd have to be at the school early but wait outside the school for some reason. By the time we got in, the teachers would stay busy running hot water over our hands because they were were so cold! :snowman:

Where is everybody? I am in WI so we are cold but I know other places are colder.  I don't have a warm coat that zips, right now, either, so I don't go out unless I have to.  We are supposed to be warming up a bit Sunday.  Yay for 20 degrees!!
Title: Re: Snow !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and cold !!!!!!!
Post by: natashaspy on January 05, 2018, 12:51:31 pm
Wow, I hope you warmed up before it could do any real damage! It was in the single digits here but luckily has gotten into the 30s this afternoon.

We got hit hard here in the northeast. We had 9 inches of snow but the wind added a few more inches. I am so ready for spring. :)

Had snow here Christmas Eve and it now turned to ice because of the cold.  Has not snowed here since then but really cold.

At least 1 foot in my area not including snow drifts,Only got a 6 foot long and 5 foot wide area  from my front door-my deck done before I started getting frostbite in my hand because they got wet,I'll wait til Monday to try again. Good thing I stocked up on food and milk Tues and Wed. and have power. Next week should see all this gone and some high 40's

We are in for 3 or 4 days of wind chills below zero. You just want to stay in your house.

No snow here in north Texas, just bone-chilling cold temps since New Year's Eve.  Wind chill plunged us into single-digit temps and we're not used to that!  Austin actually got snow flurries!  However, these temp drops occurred over several nights and now we're above freezing for our lows.

I had a coat from Lands End that covered my face.
It was my favorite. I kept a photo of it.
I think they still sell it.
I gave that coat away. I kept another winter coat.

I also had insulated gloves.....still have them for when I return north.
I plan a move to Tennessee to be close to my sisters and brother again.
I have been down in FL. with my parents for 20 years.

The cold has been a bit much for this year. Didn't get snow where I live but the temperatures have been lower this year then in the past few years for much longer days!

Post by: appy9104 on January 06, 2018, 07:08:53 am
No snow here in Western NC (it all went East) but it has been insanely cold for over a week now.  We should start warming Tuesday.  The weatherman said the average temp we have had the last several days is the normal for MONTANA.  My brother in Denver CO has been having 50's, I keep telling him I want to send him his weather back.

The chill here is bitter - and there is no escaping it where I work.  The front doors at the entrance continually freeze (OPEN) and the other set is constantly opening and closing so the entire store has a chill that is so intense my hands are stiff and piping anything is impossible unless I first microwave the pastry bag.

We havne't had snow that actually stuck to the ground in 30 years, until now.  It snowed four days ago, and there is still five inches on the ground!  This is insane and something I didn't think I would ever see in my lifetime.  At least here.

Tell me about it! I could not stand to be outside shoveling for more than 30 mins. It was horrible and today it's -6 degrees in NJ. I can't wait for my cruise in March! :D

My neighbors have been calling me about their  water freezing,my dad's nursing home has pipes bursting,I have not even gotten out of bed today(strained and stiff shoulder)everybody is having some issue but it should be better this week and next. Pretty bad when the high 20's and 30's are  heatwave conditions.

We have not had any real snow here where I live this year but it sure has been cold! They say it is supposed to warm up in the next few days and I can't wait.

It's maybe 18 degrees here right now in NC. Only saw one snowfall so far and it only lasted maybe 10 minutes and was a flurry.  Nothing major, which I'm glad of.

Right now we are having a warm day, suppose to be 70 Tuesday. It is  almost like spring. But it will change  soon and be  so cold. Nothing like the 4 seasons but to have them all in one month is weird. We should already  have snow on the mountains and we have nothing. I am not knocking it. But we need the moisture so bad.  We just pray someone does not start a  fire. We had great rains all summer and the grass and  of course dry weeds  some up to  our waist. If a fire got started with the winds  it  move so fast.

My car took nearly a half hour to scrape the ice off enough so that I could drive. Then the roads were icy so it took about 45 minutes to get to work (about double my normal time).

We had a cold spell with a lot of wind chill warning days in a row.
This week, it warmed up to above zero.  Two days ago, it was warm enough that we took our outside Christmas lights down and then I made two snowmen with my 3 year old grandson.
It has turned back to frigid again.
Good news though to me at least, is that I usually see my first robin return in mid February and by mid March, winter has lost its fury.
