****! Nice storm.  >:(  I got up early & shoveled the back walk as the snow drifted with the high winds. The drive to work was not too bad, I left 15 mins early but it was like driving on mashed potatoes. We left work 1/2 hr early to beat the traffic so not so bad either but the snow on the garage pad & around the house.  >:(

Took me over 1 1/2 hrs to clean up.  >:(

The storm is over & the winds have died down now but the temp is going to -29°C tonight.  :-\

Today a massive (well, for here anyway) coldfront moved in at midday; the temp never got higher than 33 degrees with as hard as the wind blew. The ****** thing is, I'm not looking forward to work tommorrow since I have some software verifications scheduled on the plane tommorrow and we're expecting snow above 1500 ft(we're at 2500)and highs of 25-30 degrees. Of course in the morning when I start work it will be 15 degrees with 15 mPH winds no doubt ::). UGH

I guess I'm officially SOCAL spoiled(weather-wise) now.

Wow, it's finally cold today!

-12oF Wind Chill this AM.  It's cold out, but it's nice to get some real Minnesota winter weather finally.  :P

Holy crap :o

Now don't take this the wrong way, I'm not really whining, it's more a tinge of amazement than anything else.

Temperature outside this morning, with the windchill:  -48 C

That's just nutty kookoo.  It equates out to -54 F.  Now without the windchill it's a balmy -38 C, so really not that cold, but consider the following:

When I stepped out the door this morning, the temperature change from my house to outside was 126 degrees, from +72 F in the house to -54 F outside.

The car, parked inside the garage, barely started. 

While driving to work at 70 mph, on several occasions the engine RPM increased because the engine was cooling off.

Exposed skin freezes in under two minutes at this temperature.  We're not talking frostbite, we're talking your skin freezes.  Period.  And that's just not a good thing. 

Shrinkage.  Seinfeld didn't adequately cover the topic, of that I can assure you.  Sucked.  Up.  Inside.  'Nuff said. 

One would think living here you'd be prepared and for the most part I/we are.  Extra mitts, goretex overpants, hat, scarf, etc.  The funny part is this cold and all I added was a thin fleece vest.  It's cold out, so I need an extra layer, otherwise I'm wearing the same stuff I was when it was 40 C warmer.  Acclimatization is a beautiful thing.

Same exact wind chill here in Nebraska this morning as well.  Nothing like what Brent and friends are dealing with up north, but we haven't had a whole lot of really cold weather here yet.  Sounds like we're in for our second snowstorm of the season this weekend as well.

This is why Canada can offer free health care...a third of the year you're all in cryogenic stasis.

The wind and cold hit us here in CO too. We hit -11 degrees F with the windchill last night. It's +1 Farenheit today with a high of +2 F and a low of -2. I wlaked the dogs at 4:45 this morning  with shorts on and it didn't seem that bad.

The other night before the storm hit it was 54 F in Boulder and 19 F in Greeley, at the same time. These are both front range cities and Greeley is only about 25-30 miles east of Boulder.
