Holy crap, it's cold

Recommended Posts

There was an "official weather reporting station" north of Havre early this morning that recorded an uncorrected, no wind chill temperature of 30 below zero at 1:00 am. Now, the only thing north of Havre is Canada about 30 miles away, so maybe the little one-horse border crossing station at Willow Creek...?

I guess that’s winter in Montana, even if it’s still Fall.  Temperatures here in Central Florida have plunged too.  64 degrees right now (6 am) with an expected high of only 85.  If this keeps up I may have to roll down my sleeves.

Brrr. It got 30 here last night and that wants to shut everything down.

I worked in NODAK once and when it was 30 below. I called home where it was 70.

I thunked, "Wow! that's a hundred degree difference."

When I got snowed in my apartment for 2 days, I said, "That's it! This South Texas boy is going home!"

Mow lawn on Saturday. Rake leaves on Sunday.  Shovel snow on Monday.  Weather guy said we'd get into the single digits by sunrise.  But just says 12 now.

I’m sorry you’re cold Pard, but I remember the photos you posted of your reloading room—please don’t start any fires!

It was 20 here this morning and I thought it was cold. Maybe I should quit bitching.

Had 7 degrees this morning. Opening day rifle season will be a blistering 10 or less in the valley here!

We have about 8 inches here and it's staying.

Wind caused some drifting at the side of our place and my son had to knock some of the drift down so the snow-blower could clear and throw it rather than tunnel into the drift.

On the plus side, we ain't seeing many mosquitoes or Black Flies!!

Ain't funny getting snowed in.

It happened to us, a couple of times, at our year round cottage in Quebec.

Massive snow dumps close the highways for the day and the side roads got plowed.......later.

Sometimes much later.

Like after the local politicians places were plowed out.

We would had to call in, from a nearby farm, with a phone line, and report to our offices that we were snow bound.Banane01.gif

But we had our Ski-Doos, lots of food, wood, coal, stove oil, propane and rum, so it was all good.

We ran our lights, frig and stove on propane, due to lack of hydro* into our area.

 

* That's what Canadians call electric power.

I remember Havre , I was living there in 1974 when they had the reported low for the nation at -42. I don't remember exactly the month ,probably Jan. or Feb.

Oddly enough , a few years later , in Feb of 1979 , here in Vernal we had the reported low in the nation one day , it was also -42.
