Yeah...colder than a demonazi's heart.  So cold I actually saw a leftist with its hands in its own pockets. 

Got snow?  Check.

Got cold?  Check.

Working from home today?  You know it!

Cold? In winter? Fo' REAL???

It HAS to be climate change. It's never been cold in winter before.

I'd laugh so hard if they blew this one.  It was supposed to be well below zero, this morning, and not to climb back above until Friday.

It's +1.1 on my thermometer, actually warmer than the +0.1 it was when I went to bed.

I'm on the north side...I just went from -9 to -8...but supposed to get worse and hit -11 for a high, dip to -28, hit -15 tomorrow and -30 tomorrow night and -4 Thursday and a balmy +12 Friday.   We'll see.  Seems like when they miss they miss more on storms and precipitation.  Storms make sense...precip not as much.  And in winter everybody should see this crap coming a long way off.

That low moving east is sucking all that cold right down on us...even the dumbest TV weathercritter should see that.

A couple years ago(? cannot remember) it got cold but not this cold, little snow cover, and my sewer line froze. I live in the city 55112 zip.  The only thing worse than freezing is having sh*t back up in my basement in winter.My house is old. It only happened that winter.

Maybe I could blow hot air down the sewer line?  I just hope ....

Sounds like New Brighton area...Water damage of any sort in any weather stinks...in cold it's just an extra mean slap.  Regular flow using keeps ingoing and outgoing pipes clear...but when air temps get this bitter flow isn't enough.  Insulation and heating methods that are safe should be employed.  We keep lake at low temp but still shut off the water.  My sister got PO'd over that when making a visit earlier...left dirty dishes in sink...I yakked about it, she shot back "why do we turn the water off?"...yeah, for days like this.  Some of the pipework there is barely sheltered from the cold...and no regular flow could be catastrophic in merely freezing temps...bitter cold like this would wreak havoc in no time.  Even in the little pump room we shutdown we keep a small electric heater set low just as a backup.  We would need to do similar in other spots around the foundation if we stayed all winter.   Heard some folks in Minneapolis lost power, never heard a direct cause.  Do what you can and good luck.

-24 actual, -55 wind chill.  Predicted -28 with a shot at the -55, which ties the all time wind chill record.  Still saying -32 tonight.  We'll see.

I was out a bit yesterday...quite bracing.  And traffic (vehicular and human) was light...which was nice.

Polar Vortex exploitation!

Why is it my weather app says -15 in my nape of the neck and also tell me there is zero wind...and still give me a wind chill of -32?!

They have a fudge-factor of 7 MPH on 0 MPH wind?

WTF?!

It's a conspiracy I tell ya!!!

I'm goin' out for a cigar...polar vortex...weather clowns...

-14/-28

Missed the all time record by a degree at both ends.

Maybe the next 20 year cold spell...

I'll be honest...yesterday at twilight while enjoying my puro out front...it was brisk...and after a half hour the pain in my toes told me that it was time to go in before numbness took hold and led to no little piggies.

Bottomed at -26 here last night, so again not quite as bad.  The rollercoaster continues - +18 tomorrow, +33 Sat, +43 Sun w/rain, freezing rain and snow into Mon and then more normal temps...

I hear talk of pointy-headed climatologists still leaning to a cooling cycle...which will make it harder for folks to pay attention to chicken-little calls for carbon taxes et al...oh the horror, their taxpayer shakedown dreams sinking like cold air!

 :D

Lordy, compared to the above temps...it's absolutely tropical here.  I live in the Northern Neck of Virginia.
the Wbug says it's 16.    I think two of my electronic porch thermometers broke... lol

In Joisey does such weather put a crimp on the street economy or does everything just go indoors somewhere?

We did hit -30 after all.  A new all time record.  The Quad Cities, where I'm originally from, hit -33, a full 5 degrees colder than the previous all time record.  Now THAT is impressive.
