Default Damn! It is cold and windy.

Temp this morning is -11 with a wind chill of -31. Forecast says -20 tonight with wind chills -40 or worse. We only got about 3-5 inches of snow but it has been blowing around so bad I am sure I will be busting drifts this morning. When the heavy squall line came through yesterday you could not see 20 ft. it was snowing so bad. Hurt my left shoulder trying to get the slider on my building open so plowing will be a painful job. It blew a lot of this powdery snow in on my woodshed so that will be a chore as well.

Man I dread plowing this morning, -3F here. It will be fine after I get out there but the ceremony (gearing up) before is like a wake

Yikes. Woke up this morning to a balmy -37 celsius with a windchill of -48. That's cold.

7 deg here and light winds.

The Sun is trying to come out though, and it will make it feel better.

Down here in North Carolina it was hovering neary 50 degrees F and sunny yesterday, but then late afternoon/evening the winds picked up from calm to daaaaammnnnn! Temps dropped as the winds were blowing. We walked into the theater last night for a play, temps were still in the low-mid 40'sF. Walked out 2.5 hours later after the play and the temps were in the 20'sF with winds blowing strong enough to make you hold onto the steering wheel of the car to make sure you didn't get blown into the next traffic lane.

Winds are calm and cold (for here) with temps in the 20'sF now, going up up 30F. Rare to stay below the freezing point here.

Reports from home in Northern Indiana are much different. Wind Chills at -20F. Snow blowing roads closed. State of emergency in several counties due to snow and blowing causing White Out conditions. Temps near or below 0F.

So we picked a good time to be in North Carolina.

-2F out with a wind chill of -40F here right now. Steady 20MPH wind with gusts over 40MPH. Brutal day here as we are on the windy backside of the weekend blizzard. The driveway is drifting back in, so if the wind dies down I got a job this afternoon.

Was -15 here this morning. Luckily, not much wind down here in the valley.

My Dad e-mailed this morning. Reporting that he was at -10 and his furnace had just quit. He figured out that if he disconnects the outdoor air supply, everything works. No idea why (yet). When he called the HVAC company they said this is happening to multiple people with propane furnaces.

Sounds like there could be a limit switch on the outside air intake. Frozen maybe in the wrong position? Hard to say of course from here. Good that he was able to get it running.

We've got around 15 right now with an expected foot of snow by morning.

LOL, good question. I heard the local news this morning saying the reason it is so cold here this year is the fact the cold air has no place to go. What? No place to go? Where has it always been going that it can't go to this year?

Apparently I picked a good day to get the heck out of North Carolina too.

Whole state is apparently under some sort of state of emergency due to ICE.

What? The Great Lakes are freezing over again? That's not supposed to happen. I thought winters were going to be so warm that we'd all be growing palm trees by now.

BTW, Lake Champlain has frozen over now for the second year in row. First time that has happened in over 10 years.
