    Dam, we have another 2-3 day storm. 100 mph winds. Started with freezings rain, then turned into snow. Power outages. All roads closed in and out out of town. I haven seen it this bad ever. Must be global warming. Kim

        Be well and safe bud! Turn up the heat and hunker down. Coldest I've ever been was out there where you're at. -50 with the chill. Brutal!
        Be safe bud!

        Yuck, I can't even imagine snow like that. Must be a PITA to dig out of to go to work if you even have a chance tomorrow? Snow day!

        We haven’t got too much snow yet but it sure is ugly out there. It’s pretty warm up here for this time of the year. 30* F right now. Kim

        OUCH! And I hated the 4" we got last week. I have a daughter who lives just north of Toronto, Canada , and when I complain to her about 3 or 4 inches of snow, she just laughs. It was 57 here today. I took the Barracuda for a nice long cruise and put some gas in it.

          Been warm here as well Kim rained yesterday and windy and a bit of snow but nothing like you got.
          I was in Bismark on Monday and on my way back home saw 2 flocks of Canadian geese heading North. Strange to see this time of year.

          We had pretty crazy wind/rain storms on Tuesday night here in Oregon. Knocked the power out at home.

            I don't know how yall deal with that kinda cold. Just like I don't know how the guys in fla deal with that kinda heat. Here in VA we have to deal with both ends of the spectrum but not to the degree yall do around 20 is the coldest it will be during the day iv seen it in the negative at night and in February it will get in the negative but its only for a short time. I couldn't deal with that crap for a whole season. Just like I can't deal with the heat in July here. I like 60-70 year around i would happy with that

              Not as bad as you think as long as the wind don't blow. 20 below or even 40 below is not to bad but yea not gonna dress in shorts and a T shirt.
              Been your way when I use to drive semi and very nice country there but I can't handle the heat like you said about July.

                    We just had a bad (for us) windstorm down here in the N end of Idaho. 24hrs without power and the www just came back on ? last hour or so. Trees down all over. There were trees down on Harrison ave took out some pretty mainline feeders, about 3 blocks from here. The flash when it all came crashing lit up the sky through the windows.

                    Wow, Del that’s bad. This is the worst year I have seen since the 70s or 80s. I guess it is the worst year ever in Kindersley. I have lived a few places that were worse but that was way 40 or 50 years ago. Kim

                        Yea and you Canutes send all that cold air South to us guys!!!! It is all your fault!!!!
                        I fell for ya, I remember some of those Alberta Clipper that hit Mo. back when I lived there. All there was for heat was a small wood burning stove. But minus 20 and 35 mph wind ain't the stuff that blizzards are made of up in Canada!!!
                        I say just hunker, it will pass.

I went back in December and absolutely loved it! It was amazing. It was hot midday but cooled off at night it was perfect.

                              You know it might be plenty hot when sweat runs down your leg into your boots!!! SE Tx is about like Fl, just hotter!

                              I've only had to put my Jeans on twice in the last two months. Still wearing shorts.

                                For me it has only been once that I had to put jeans on.
