Snow !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and cold !!!!!!!
« 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.

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!!

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.
