Complicated Lady

Crazy Cold Here!

Recommended Posts

I don't like cold weather.

 

I have been thinking about you guys that live where it's cold ...really cold... often.

How do you stand it???

 

I need sunshine.... shorts and tank tops....

I guess I'm still a Southern California girl when it comes to this weather.

Cases of sunstroke are almost totally absent from the EMT reports in the Northwet.

I don't like cold weather but when we get a little cool like it is now I remember Korea and the winter of '58. I have rolled out a sleeping bag in the snow with the temp at 45 below, That puts things in perspective.

Ms. Complicated,

 

I live a little ways south of you & those cold temps are reaching way into south Texas. We've been breaking ice on the water trough & changing out water buckets quite frequently the last few days. Even got the horses blanketed for the nights. That ice storm that hit DFW stopped about 5 miles from our town, so we were quite lucky in that aspect. Sure glad we don't see temps like this very often!!

Hasn't been above freezing here in the hill country for a couple of days, supposed to snow tonight. Know what you mean about breaking ice and hauling water, had a foal born Sat night and trying to keep her warm is taxing at times.

I had an uncle there. He said one of his problems was breathing on the zipper of his sleeping bag and getting frozen into the bag. He said he was in such a condition when a mortar attack started. He said "Don't let anyone ever tell you you can't run in a sleeping bag."

The cold don't bother me that much (As long as we don't have a pipe freeze, bust and flood the house!), It won't last that long anyway. Before we know it we'll be back in the upper 90's and triple digit weather and hating that. I just enjoy the seasons and the changes.

 

Now those of you with livestock, I feel for you that don't like it. I remember cutting ice on the ponds and feeding hay out morning and night for the cattle. I guess I am one of the mental ones as I actually enjoyed it and miss being on a farm. Of course we had no problem buying good quality coveralls, work gloves, ski masks, insulated socks and thermal underware to make the cold very tolerable. Shoot, me and my brother would get the Dirt bikes then later Quads out in the snow and play the rest of the day.

I remember the last time it REALLY snowed in San Antonio. God help us all if it doesn't melt fast. Wish me luck I'm saddleing up for a trail ride come morning.

I'm with you CL. If I wanted weather like this I'd move to Mintsoda. The cold is one thing, but I sure could have done without the #$%&* ICE! :angry: If I didn't have to drive 15 miles to work it wouldn't be so bad. My normal 30 min. drive has been taking an hour and a half. :huh: Looks like I'll have it again in the morning. Hopefully it will warm up enough to get better tomorrow. Hasn't hit 20 degrees since Monday night.

CL, I was born and raised in this frosty environment, and even though you get sort of used to it, you never really like it a lot. You just kind of learn to live with it, and know that in about 5-6 months or so, nice weather's a-comin'. I went winter hiking the other day. The temp at 0800 was 4 degrees F, but the sun was out and the wind wasn't blowing so it wasn't too awful bad.

 

Still can't wait for shorts and t-shirt weather though...
