Wind chill?

 

We haven't hit the positive numbers on a plain old temperature reading yet. And it's not like I live in Canada, or Minnesota, or something.

You're right, the regular temp this morning was in the positive single digits, so we got that going for us!  I guess it could always be worse, glass half-full, right?

This one thing is keeping me from going loco... Sounds like I'm playing racquetball.

The golf mat I purchased came with a couple of these and I really like them. None of the stores in town carry them. Do you order yours online?

They aren't the same thing?

Snow, followed by rain, followed by snow today. A lot more snow in the forecast for tomorrow. Gonna be ugly.

Supposed to hit 30 degrees today...so I will probably try to hit a few balls at the heated range tonight after work. The heat doesn't work all that well and the stalls are open so it is ineffective against wind but its better than nothing. Next 4 days are supposed to be above freezing though, which is awesome. Hmm...never thought I'd be so pumped about temps in the high 30s.

So for all the crap I talked about the great weather we're having (high of 69 today) we've had almost zero rain. Drout and water rationing talks are heating up around here. Some counties near me have claimed to already have ran out of water. How does that happen?

Now for the big tease. The temps are going to be in the 50's over the weekend but there is still a significant snow cover. I gotta get out of here.

according to the National news last night, if it doesn't rain soon, you won't have much left of some golf courses. In your area they had a reporter standing on a dock in a marina, the trouble was there was no water in this very large reservoir and the dock should have been floating 100-150  feet higher than it was. It was laying on the crusty bottom of the reservoir. some meteorologists feel that this drought is cyclical & could last years.

 

From the lack of snow fall in the mountains, you could be in a world of hurt-

Same here it's going to be brutal. At least January is over and we're that much closer to spring.

Ugh!  20's all next week.  Guess the snow we got last night will not be going away soon.

 

Better hit the slopes this weekend.  At least I can snowboard on champagne snow.

post #231 of 855

Yep my house faces north snow everywhere. I shoveled for at least 40 minutes this morning. Actually had to turn around for home last night on the way to a party. Doubled up the mock necks to wear my Manning jersey today.

Going to Orlando 10 days from now, hope the weather cooperates! Here in Michigan it's been tough, extremely cold and snowy.

Looks like the Polar Vortex will strike again this week. Temperatures on Wednesday will be close to -20. Man I love MinneSNOWda!

How can you make it through the winter now in Minnesota and Wisconsin!
