We are supposed to get hit with another 6-10" of snow tonight, to sit on top of the 6" we already have. The problem is if it gets windy we are in trouble. The snow that has fallen, is the light fluffy stuff, it will be a white out...

Well, I look at it this way. Sure, nobody likes to freeze their a$$ off, but at least you can dress for it. In the summer, I don't give a hoot if you run around stark naked, you're still going to roast. Plus the snow is nice. Can't stand the ice, but I like the snow.

Kansas snow must be nice. But, up here in Mini-frostbite-ota snow is not nice. The first storm almost always start out as freezing rain, turns to sleet, and evolves into snow with 35 mph winds, taking the wind chill down to about -65. They call it an Alberta clipper, I call it a white hurricaine.

I thought 60 was cold. I almost took off my shorts to put on pants. Put an extra log on the fire Randy and snuggle up with your Axiom's.

The sun is going down, the wind is starting to pick up, and it's beginning to rain even harder than the steady drizzle we've had all day.

...and the temp has dropped below 70F

SHEEIIITTT!!! You guys are living in the tropics!! Come on up for a visit! Ya wimps!!!

I bought a beautiful 10’ Christmas tree in Anchorage last weekend like I do every year, threw it in the back of the truck and drove home to Valdez (300 mile trip). The temp was between -24 and -32 F most of the way. Killed my damn tree so now I get to sweep up needles every day. Hopefully it’ll last till Christmas. It’ll be in the new year’s eve bon fire and it’ll be a torch!

Then I get to plow my driveway every night with the four wheeler when I get home from work. So far we’ve got 80” of snow since Nov 2. Our average snow fall is 350” and it’s 800” on the pass twenty miles away. Then there’s rain in-between snow storms which really makes snow removal fun. Had 8” of heavy snow fall today in the past six hours and it’s turning to rain. The forecast is calling for 8 – 12” of snow every day for the next four days.

Just another year in Alaska………not much different than last year, or the year before, and before and before……..

32 here in Austin, wind chill 20 due to NNW winds 14 mph gusting to 21 mph with light rain and the temp is steadily going down.

And this is Central Texas!

Somebody close the freezer door...

I've got this theory.

I think that the immigrants who came to this country from Siberia and Scandinavia didn't stop going west until they found someplace just as miserable as the one they left, so they ended up in the midwest.

People should not live there.

btw, my folks are from Kansas, so this is a family joke. No offense intended.

Tom, it's family that's kept me here for as long as it has. Kansas bites, you roast in the summer and you freeze in the winter. It literally goes from one extreme to the other, there is no in between, but you get used to it though. Once ya do, it's not that bad. At least I know I'll do fine wherever I live.

Iowa is worse Sutter, have you ever heard the song "Stranded in Iowa" by Mannfred Mann's Earth Band, what a classic. I was cranking up my Axiom's the other day when putting up some more trim. KGGO Classic Rock, that has been in Des Moines for over 30 years plays this song from time to time.

I can agree with you Sutter on the summer/winter weather in Kansas. I have relatives in Kansas, Olathe to be exact, whom I've visited many times. Sitting in the shade does no good, I still end up breaking out in a continous sweat. In winter the cold goes right through ya. Can't stay warm enough. I guess I'm spoiled by the dry climate in central California.

Yeah I've been to Iowa many times, I know how it can get in that crazy state. lol

I was offered a wrestling scholarship with the Hawkeyes, but passed on it for a number of reasons. I make my way to Iowa at least once or twice a year. Just all depends on my schedule.

Sorry man, not a Hawkeye fan. For wrestling I like the Iowa State Cyclones. I actually attended the University of Northern Iowa. They kicked the Hawkeyes but in basketball in the UNI Dome last night, 3rd time in a row. Once back in the late 80's when I was attending school there, again in the late 90's, and just last night. UNI isn't even in the same conference, but they play occasionally as an interstate rival....

I agree with brotherbob richeydog...
