aqueous18 We missed this last storm by the skin of our teeth. We only got a light dusting of about 3-5 inches. Finally a small break as we are moving tomorrow!

Shaolin They are calling for 12-20 inches in Pittsburgh. I'm closing on a house, so I wish I could stay here, but I gotta get home to Finn and Abi.

And your nose is frozen shut.
Yes, the weather here is wonderful,
You may think I'm a fool.
I could never leave Ohio,
Cause I'm frozen to the stool.


Being from northern Ohio I luv this.. Gotta pass it on.

selzer My brother lives around the corner from me.

He informs me that it was -14 this morning.

-14 is bloody cold for my neck of the woods. I've seen it down to -10 in the middle of the night, but I am talking morning. -11, -14 what fun!

I meet with a lady who has to be nearing ninety, and she is out there in this crap getting her driveway down to the concrete. I haven't seen my sidewalk in months. God put that white crud there, and He can take it away! (This is probably why I twisted my ankle.) The Good Lord may have a sense of humor, but don't push it!

onyx'girl I am really looking forward to mud season and the layers, upon layers of poop I'll be scooping as each snowstorm melts away. Thankfully I feed raw so it wont' be so bad, but it is going to be epic.

Susan_GSD_mom Michigan here, on the morning side near the bay, and it was -8 last night, and supposed to be colder tomorrow night, breaking records for this time of year. We have had at least 52" of snow (that's at the airport, so it's more or less depending on where you are). I am pushing close to 7 decades on this earth, and this winter is the worst. There may have been worse winters, but I was younger then! Since the partial thaw and then return of the vortex, our 1/2 acre yard has frozen every footprint, human and canine, into a trap that could easily sprain or break an ankle. My poor Jade was limping for a week, I think because she probably twisted something after slipping into one of the thousands of frozen footprints. I wouldn't let her run until she was sound again, which meant I was walking her out there, hoping the plate in my once-broken ankle held up...

Question--Is the 'polar vortex' the same as when the jet stream used to slip too far south, or is this a totally new phenomenon?

selzer It's sixteen now.

It was 1 degree last night when I was letting them in and out, around 10PM.

I fell asleep on the sofa watching Hawaii Five-O reruns to see some sunshine, and got up at 1 to let them out and in again. Not sure how cold it was.

I got up before 6 to let them out and in again. Not sure how cold it was, but my gloved hand was sticking to the metal parts out there.

Finally around 10AM, I got my hot water and thawed the water buckets and filled them and put them out in their runs.

It was 12 degrees when I got here, around 1ish.

I am just so tired of this crappy yucky weather.

Kain loves it for about 5 minutes when he eats snow and bounds through the drifts. Then he starts shaking and hovering by the door with this look like, "Why did I do that?" I am watching from the warmth of the indoors laughing at him lol
