welcome to winter everyone and Happy New Year

I've been waiting with open arms for it to show up! Hurray!

sorryhog

Stay off the roads and let plow operators do their jobs!

Stop It

It's not that bad, really. I was just out. Unless you're one of those idiots who forgets EVERY year how to drive on snow, you'll be fine. It's the light fluffy kind, not real wet and sticky.

The problem is that there are so MANY of those idiots who forget every year how to drive on snow! I rarely worry about ME...but given some of the people I've seen on the roads, I do worry about a lot of other people!

I'm staying in today. I really don't have anything that needs doing anyway, and this kind of snowfall is really pretty when you've got a cup of hot coffee, a good book, and a great view out the window. :-)

"really pretty when you've got a cup of hot coffee"

And a pair of skies : )

What book are you currently reading, Sam? Just curious. I love a good book (and coffee)!

Just finished up a Terminator 2 trilogy (yes, really) by S.M. Stirling. Surprisingly good! About to re-read Dresden series (Jim Butcher) from the beginning since I just got the latest book. Looks like I'll have time this weekend, doesn't it? LOL!

Great! Enjoy it. I'm in the middle of a book about Jacqueline Kennedy's White House years. Tastefully done, interesting, nostalgic. I'm gonna put another pot on!

Good choices! I'd say more but I think the spam filter hits a post longer than 200 letters these days!

Everyone stay safe out there!

Here in snowbird heaven, it’s supposed to go all the way down to 65 degrees overnight.

I’ll probably have to turn on the heat. Brrrr

I'd much rather have all the snow

Now I see why you are such a bigot. A retired,bitter, old goat in Florida. Explains a lot.

You guys might like this- but I'm looking out the back window at my boat all covered in snow and wondering why the heck I'm living in Ohio....

I guess this means driving to my place of employment in Toledo on Thursday is sort of out of the question. ;-)

"Real Feel"?

What do people not understand the term "Wind Chill" now?

ladydye_5

They are starting to "dumb down" a lot of terms these days. LOL

Two different things starry. Hopefully you will be able to understand this.
Wind Chill only takes into account two variables - temperature and wind speed.
Real feel is a composite of the effects of temperature, wind, humidity, sunshine intensity, cloudiness, precipitation and elevation.

Since when? all the forecasters have said every year "the wind chill is HOW it feels on your skin". For many years that's what they all said. No matter what channel I watched.

So why the difference now? Because a rhyme is simpler to remember.. that's the only reason.

I hate winter and all the crap it brings with it. Cold, snow, sick people hacking all over the place and just an ugly look for Ohio. Spring can come early this year.

As a old guy at a Bar once told me "The darker and colder the winter is the warmer and sunnier the summer will seem, Plus it makes beer taste better". It did not make much sense to me when he said it and I thought who is going to listen to a guy who rarely sticks his head of the bar to see the weather let alone philosophize on it, But as I have grown older and wiser this makes more and more sense. And yes the beer does taste better after a long cold winter.

I guess the wooly bears were right this time.
