@carl669 …think it was 66 or 67 degrees today so🤭course any kind of weather you want, I think we have it here in Texas…floods, earthquakes (thankfully not big ones) snow and freezing temperatures…Thankfully, not minus degree temperatures --that’s why I live in the south, as I like warm weather not deep freeze weather …hope you guys stay safe in all that frigid weather…
It kills off all the nastier cold blooded creatures aside from mosquitos; unfortunately those little bastards have figured out how to burrow into trees and siding to protect themselves and their eggs are safe in swamp water somehow.
Anyway you can always put on more clothes and there’s always seat heaters!
@therealjrn our shower froze on Friday night. Pipe didn’t burst. Hope your story ended without a busted pipe. We have a big hole in the drywall in the bathroom with a cold draft from outside blowing into the bathroom.
James Loughlin, of Austin, Tex., took a walk up the Mount Washington Auto Road at around 3,900 feet during a break in a SnowCoach tour in Gorham, N.H., on Friday.
Start of article:
GORHAM, N.H. — The moment you step out into the frozen air on the way up Mount Washington — one of the most frigid spots in the lower 48 — the icy wind steals your breath and freezes your eyelashes. You can’t blink. The cold stabs your face and numbs your earlobes to rubber.
“It’s an icy hell,” said Amy Loughlin, 50, who was visiting from Austin, Tex., and scaling the mountain, the highest in the Northeast, in the back of a SnowCoach — a van retrofitted with tanklike treads to handle the blowing snow and treacherous roads.
With much of the Northeast and Midwest feeling like a block of ice, the temperature here in the high peaks of New Hampshire’s White Mountains was forecast to drop to 40 degrees below zero overnight Friday. The wind chill could make the air feel as cold as 100 below zero. That is not a typo. Negative. 100.
