Been so cold the electrons gotta put their coats and mittens on before traveling down the wires.



Might get above freezing for a few days starting tomorrow.

At the VT location this morning, I saw a reading of -24 on the weather station. That may have been a bit high because we're in a bit of a bowl here and the station doesn't often get the brunt of the wind. Regardless, I've been feeding the wood stove pretty regularly. It's nice and warm inside. But so cold, we didn't bother skiing or snowmobiling.

Took a drill with a long bit and went at the ice on top of the 36" deep pool.  Broke through at about 10".

Well, supposedly last night was the last below-freezing temperature in the forecast.  We had eight consecutive days of below-freezing lows which is highly unusual for our area.  But, they were a dry cold...if the wind wasn't blowing it wasn't too bad.  We're actually supposed to hit 70F the middle of the week...wow, what a difference.  I guess we can't stop the faucets from dripping now...  #-o

You folks up there where it's really cold...I just don't see how you do it.

My last two weeks.  And I'm not where this is normal.  Last column is degrees below normal.

It sounds cliche, but you just get used to it. I've lived in New England all my life and I'm probably more wired for cold weather than most people. I'll take cold over heat and humidity any day. I've been to FLA in June; that's my "I don't see how people deal with this" weather.

You do have to be careful in the cold. It's not joke. Bundle up and prepare.

I agree that it's what we get used to.  I talked with a couple of folks at church this morning and we agreed that we have been getting more acclimated to the cold weather as time has passed.  Not to say we're overly excited about it, but dealing with it better.  Next Saturday we're supposed to start again with a stretch of freezing nighttime temperature...four nights in a row, it looks like.  I'll be cutting the heat on and dripping faucets at four different locations again...beats the cost of a busted pipe.  :roll:

Ditto on preparing for the cold...can't walk out there with a thin cotton shirt on...unless it's one of many layers. ;)

It's in the 30's today and feels like a heatwave outside.  :lol:

Looks like we'll get our first decent snow in Central Iowa Thursday morning followed by strong winds and colder temperatures. Can't wait for that!

1/11, 6AM, 61 degrees.

Last time over 60 degrees was oddly enough ....  12/11

Go figure.


About to do the big crash though.  Forecast is for single digits again by Monday.

It looks like we're headed back down starting Friday night...six below-32F nights, dropping into the low 20's a couple of nights.  Clear and cold this weekend.  Then slowly the temp creeps up and...more cloudy, rainy, dreary weather it looks like starting next weekend.

Gotta make an unplanned trip out.  I wasn't going to go anywhere until mid next week.  But they've upped out chances of ice and I need to go top off all the gas cans to have at least 25 gallons on hand for the generator ----  just in case.

Still have power.


So far.

Still have stuff coming down and lots of winds, so who knows if we'll make it through unscathed.

Looks like my earlier mention of four nights below freezing has turned into a week...and there's a 17F mentioned in there.  I just made a round in the yard and started pipes to dripping.  Will do the rounds at the other buildings tomorrow...predicted low tonight is only 29F so I'm not really worried about freezing...but then it gets colder tomorrow night.  So...get faucets dripping tomorrow and a little heat going at five different places.  I've already said it, but I'll say it again...I haven't seen stretches of cold weather like this in a looooooooooooooooong time!!!!!!!  :shock:

^^  Not fun anytime, lots less fun in cold.  Made it through the storm with mine.  Wood stove is doing OK, but the wood pile is now snow and ice covered.

The power stayed out about an hour...applause for our rural electric guys!!!  I will say that it was beginning to cool off in this old house.  My wife was in bed asleep.  I was holding a quilt above the bed about to lay it on her when she woke up and the power came back on...glad she didn't have a gun. :lol:

We had some wild weather in the northeast Friday into Saturday. In VT, some significant river flooding followed by a drop back to sub freezing temps. 50's and then back into the teens and 20's. Single digits lows last night with below zero windchills.
