[IckyPoo] .....and more snow!

6-8" overnight which isnt bad but its quite cold! 4F now with windchills in the -10F or colder range. Its expected to get -10F and colder without the wind tonight. Thats the coldest its been in nearly 20 years here in Western Connecticut. Im imagining Squirt reading this thinking "why is Ick complaining about spring weather".

I think that squirt is punishing us for some reason. First December was really cold now January. Someone bake her some cookies or something.

Re: [IckyPoo] .....and more snow!

We're warming up, believe it or not!

Current conditions: -25C, -33 windchill (-12F, -27 windchill)

....and we'll be close to the freezing point by Sunday afternoon. Of course! The Canal just opened for skating (world's largest skating rink!) so it's time to warm up and ruin the ice.

Temp is 26 degrees right now, and headed down into the very upper teens tonight. I've been keeping a very close eye on this front; so far, no pain yet. That will probably change tomorrow, once this front gets within 8 hours of me; time will tell on that. Forecast is for 6-12 inches of the white stuff, starting tomorrow night. Not looking forward to the temps next week; going to be bitterly cold next week, once this front arrives here.

Dog food, cat food, and kitty litter are all stocked up. Jo food was delivered this evening.

Doggie clothes are ready to go too!

Watching the radar now.

It was -5F this morning so not nearly as cold as they predicted here. A bit colder in other parts of the state. -13F I think. Overall not as bad as it could have been.

Pain level finally hit several hours ago; it was so bad that I had to resort to taking Vicodin! Feeling better now, thankfully.

Tom has a snow cam set up in his yard -- LOL!!!

Snow is about two hours out, give or take. I tuned up the snow shovel this afternoon.

It is coming here also and we are prepared. I plan on shoveling snow at noon but may have to start the snow blower later. Hope The blower starts. It does have an electric start.

The weather alarm went off at five AM and my wife got up to check and see if the Grand-kids school was closed. LOL

Well, it's snowing to beat the band here! Coming in from the northwest, so I've already shoveled off the porch this morning. I let Chance out on the cable, and shoveled while he was going potty. No coat or gloves, and I was wearing flip-flops! I think I've lost my marbles completely now, but just wanted the snow off the porch so that he wouldn't track it in the house. Have over two inches in the last hour, and it's a steady snowfall now, instead of those little sleet balls like we had last night. Forecast is now for 7-13 inches of this stuff. Manny took one look at the snow and blew a gasket -- went over and peed on my lawnmower, which is fully covered, thankfully.




Tom's snow cam is up and running.

No (new) snow here, but at least we've got nice temps.

-25 with a -37 windchill (and those ain't celsius)

(out of curiosity, i checked the temps out at the airport ... -32F with a -51 windchill. For some reason, -51 rates a windchill warning, but -37 doesn't. Whatever. Anyway, I'm glad that i live in the nice toasty warm city!!!)

We've finally got a break from the cold squirt See Profile is still in (after more than a week of that), and now we're getting 5-10cm (2-4 inches) of snow but a lot could fall as freezing rain as the temperature is going to over around 0C later today. Oh, joy.

At least here, it's a dry cold.
It feels way colder at these temps where Kardinal See Profile is!

Everything still on track here for an extreme arctic air mass to come in this afternoon. Temps right now are 11F, dropping to 0 by 5pm and then -23F by tomorrow morning with strong winds yielding wind chill values of -50F. Not over -15F tomorrow and back to -21F Monday night.

This is really nasty, I'm concerned for the safety of those who could possibly get stranded. Truly a dangerous situation.

Gee thanks for exposing me, JoJo. I was sitting here very quietly hoping nobody would notice I'm not in the path this time, beginning to think daughter buying new snow boots helped after all? :/

Your map says it is coming from the NW. I just want to point out that would be Bitty Girl's NW (notice she says she has no new snow?), not my NW. We couldn't be sending it 'cause we and a very small handful of states didn't have it. This time.

One piece of advice they give here is that if you see somebody who looks like they are suffering in the cold and you can't provide shelter for them yourself, phone emergency services to make sure that somebody takes them some place warm.

Ya, that's me. I plan on being out on the streets early tomorrow, while hoping everyone else stays in. Schools have already closed for Monday, so that's one thing off my mind at least.
