Looking at the map of the highs nation wide, hard to think Global Warming....


I think we're stealing all the warmth here. It's been over 10 degrees Celsius for days now, while normally it should be around 0.
Currently it looks more like autumn/spring than winter.


Sounds like Saturday we might hit 0 C.
-12 F right now.
So much warmer than the C equivalent!
Or is that a deceptive view of the data?

You know, it's great living on a street that gets plowed in the winter (well, OK, driveway at least,) EXCEPT when said plows block the end of the driveway and you need to leave for work...

Heard the plow running this AM while I was getting going, went out to a near knee-deep pile of snow at the end of my drive. Now, the wifes car is a Dart, so it doesn't have a lot of clearance, and my car is a Subaru BRZ so it has even less clearance. So I wound up spending about 15 minutes shovelling a section wide enough to get my car and hers through...

And of course, with this bitter cold, it's not nice, light, fluffy snow, oh no. It's chunks of snow the size of basketballs or bigger...

Yuck.


Grew up in the city, moved out more to the country.
Made it easier to justify an upgrade to the shovel to clear several hundred feet of driveway.
I think the plow drives have spotters to help with optimal timing, although optimal in their eyes is very twisted.
Hope you get the snow cleared while still soft and heavy.
The cold coming your way turns it to something far worse to deal with.

That cold has already hit us here in Michigan. Woke up to -13 F with a wind chill of -39 F.
I know it doesn't touch northern Minnesota, but once it gets to -10, does it even matter any more?
All the snow has turned into fairly solid blocks.

No, no, no, no, you've got it wrong!

It's now called "Human Caused Global Climate Change!"

Northwest Ohio is probably only about 2 degrees warmer...so I almost know your pain. We awoke this morning to discover that the garage door didn't close last night - large chunks of ice/snow clinging to the bottom tripped the beam and sent it back up. oops!!!

it's been amusing over the last couple days to periodically check the weather station at the South Pole and let everyone around me know how many degrees of wind chill we were colder here in Columbus...

Happy New Year and I hope you all had a fine Christmas / Holiday season / working on call / cover...

Weather update, as Grant has discovered it gets dark here very quickly, that and the rain and wind seems to be the story of the week in not so sunny Bracknell.

Have I missed anything?

So I've had to spend most of the day working directly on a server via RDP. Only it's in Europe, so one hour ahead. Was sitting here thinking, wow lots of people still in the office for 6 pm... Oh yeah it's really 5 pm... Was then getting ready to leave

Rodders...

Grant must be slackin'... normally, he can fix a rainy day.
