    Default Extreme cold in central North America

    So how about that cold? Yesterday low temperatures were reported in the -30 degrees Fahrenheit range, and today they say low temperatures were in the -40 degrees F range. That's almost the Celsius-Fahrenheit crossing point.

    Affected areas are mostly the Great Plains, it seems, and central Canada (Saskatchewan, Manitoba, maybe Alberta). Not here in New Orleans; it's a little cold but not even to the Freezing Point.

    Anybody feeling it? How are things going in these conditions? Not as big of a deal as the news is saying, or a very big deal?

    Here is a link to a colorful map. I'll try to upload it. It looks like it updates hourly. Regional Map : Weather Underground

    Here it is from half an hour ago:

    my displeasure comes when with the first breath i take stepping out the door i feel the snot freeze and crackle in my nostrils.

    snow, and not cold, is usually what stops me riding my bike. but you can only wear so many layers keeping the warmth in while still being able to maneuver and... bend at the joints. when the longjons can no longjohner keep me insulated is when i get disheartened.

    none of this happens in milwaukee summer... lol

    i think the biggest deal with the intense arctic font temp drops is that people and places are experience prolonged low low low low temps very unfamiliar to them. i mean it always drops below 0F for a while every winter here in mke but people in middler and southerner latitudes who don't normally experience temperatures even below freezing are awestruck. and cold.

    'smy take
    So you were born, and that is a good day.
    And someday you'll die and what a shame.
    But somewhere in the between, theres a life in which we all dream,
    And nothing and no one will ever take that away.

    Yeah I noticed that, which is why I wondered what the locals really thought. So this abnormal cold has been staying for longer than usual? You think that's the main point?

    it's refreshing in bouts and cycles but not for so much everrr.

    but comparatively i will agree that a smoke in the amazon would be less bearable than a smoke in the arctic

    having said that though, smoking unfortunately isn't the only thing people occupy their lives with, lol.
    maybe living in the south and stepping into a walk-in freezer for a smoke would be ideal???
    or maybe not. i don't know what i'm talking about anymore.

    It was around freezing most of yesterday here in the south-central PA/northern MD area, but this morning around 8:30AM the low was 18F. 24F by the time I got to Baltimore.

    It's too bad I'm gonna be out of town for several days to miss most of this stuff. It's -7 degrees outside right now, not too bad. It sure beats being sweaty all the time.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    ... They say that knowledge is free, and to truly acquire wisdom always comes with a price... Well then,... That will be $10, please!

    I wish that global warming would hurry up a bit.
