Freezing or near freezing temperatures are predicted here for tonight, with possible snow on the North Shore (of Lake Ponchartrain), and possible sleet here on the South Shore. Brrrr. It seems so early in the season for it to be this cold. Lows in our eventual retirement destination in Missouri are predicted to be around 17F. Brrrr.

It could be worse. I read about seniors in London riding on public transportation all day long just to stay warm in their recent cold weather.

Got about four inches of snow with sixteen inch drift on my sidewalk today. Buffalo sixty miles east has over three feet and London fifty miles west has almost a meter. My lucky week.

About 3 inches of snow just fell. Will be getting at least 6 more over the weekend I refuse to drive in snow on the local highway between home and work. That means once I get to work friday afternoon I will have to stay in town until I get off work monday 5am. I'll be spending have the money I make to pay for hotels. Either that or call in saturday and sunday and use up 1/3 of the call-ins I get for the attendance year which started dec 1st. I HATE winter

That sucks. They don't have couchsurfing in your city do they? Free couch for a couple of nights would be great in this situation!

I've never heard of couchsurfing. I did check Craigslist for anyone looking to rent on a daily basis but only found monthly or longer. Not exactly LA where you have 1000+ options. There are only about 10 in the city i'm looking at.

Yeah, I figured it was a long shot.

Going to be an interesting week end, at least the storm will miss us.

Saturday Night:
Partly cloudy, with a low around -22. Wind chill values as low as -34. North northwest wind between 3 and 9 mph.

Sunday: Sunny, with a high near -3. Northwest wind around 7 mph.

As much as I hate the cold, i'd rather have -22 than have the 10 inches of snow that i'm going to be getting when I have to leave home to go to w*rk.

It's a balmy minus 30 degrees Centigrade this morning (minus 22 degrees Fahrenheit) and the sun is shining in a blue sky. Luckily no wind chilll. Exhaust fog is everywhere. Furnace is working overtime. Dressing for work involves Michelin Man fashion.

Tomorrow is expected to be a little warmer but with the wind chill it will feel like minus 35 C (minus 31 F).

Guess that means, the convertible top stays up, and no scarf blowing in the wind?

It was 38 F this morning in western PA. Next week the weatherfolks are promising 8 and 9 F overnight.

I cut a visit with a buddy in northern Wisconsin short and came home late Friday after looking at the weather forecast. It's a good thing I did as I'd have been stuck there for days now and we were running low on beer. It's crappy here in Chicago but I don't have to go out, the house is well provisioned and there's a fire in the wood stove.......
