So -43F is what it takes for you to feel cold?

Makes my skin burn when I go outside to urinate in my shorts it does. When I was a younger man it was just a reason to work a mite harder but now it is a reason to enjoy a fire and a plump lady.

All week, ain't been above freezing except for a few hours. Just enough to make the roads slick.
I know it snows and freezes other places too, but people around here are special type of lunatic when it comes to driving in the snow.

You have to have experience to drive in the snow. Recent experience - the first snowfall, anywhere, is wild. But where there's a real winter, drivers re-learn fast, and life goes on.

You need experience, patience, maturity, to apply the necessary caution to drive through snow. And all of those things, most Seattle residents do not have.

What you do is eat one duck and the rest will clear that pond in no time

At -43 you don't feel cold. You just feel dead

Read this response to the missus and she laughed fair hard and said,"Has he ever felt alive?"
-43 just makes ya clean an elk a mite faster than 0. Can't think of much I ain't done outside at -43 except talk a lady onto her back in a snow bank. In a car, yes.

Didn't the Farmers Almanac say we were going to have a nasty winter this season?

We had to put the ac on because of the humidity.

-32 F at home today! -8 in Minneapolis. And I love it. Go out and fill wood boiler in a Tshirt and jeans. Feels a little brisk but not bad.

And...............an elk only lives 10 years or so.......if they don't end up bear, wolf or coyote shit before then!

I've seen -71, looked out the window at it. I laughed at those that were feeling it

Cold for the sake of it is like BDSM. You hit someone and they say ouch. You go outside and just feel cold.

It does warm my heart to see the globalist warming sheeple stuck fr hours on I95.....in the snow and freezing cold..................

What a dork!
Happens in a dozen cities with every major snowstorm.

Although, in fairness, it is more common now, as truck driving moves from a skilled occupation to a minimum-wage undocumented-Democrat job. As we are seeing, a lot of those "drivers" give no thought to the dynamics of their rigs until the brakes are burning or their trailer's chasing them on ice.

But it happens; and only a cluess fa-cop would be surprised to see it happening on whatever wintertime freeway they use.

Meantime, we're getting 5-to-8 inches of Global Warming.

I guess it's the sea level rising...the foam is coming ashore in powder form.

Can't complain much. Usually we get our first big storm in mid-December.

It's been unseasonably mild in WY. During the 17 years I've been here there is almost always a DEEEEEEP freeze prior to Christmas. This year, we've had some weather but nothing that stuck around. It's cold enough tonight that I fired up the wood/coal stove. I haven't even bothered to get coal for five years or so. Gas is so cheap, why bother? It's -10 right now but we are slated for 47 by Friday. Definitely been an odd winter. Maybe those 17 years of digging up glowball warming has finally paid off. The region is still exceptionally dry though and I'm not much liking that aspect.

Meant to post this the other day. Quite the difference between the record high and low.

We were 75 degrees New Years Day….warmest on record since 1952. Mother Nature quickly rectified that….cold front caused tornados that night and we got 3” snow the following day.
