Defrost your "freezer" :P

Wow.

Where's Al Gore when you need him?

Probably off on some tropical island warning about the threat of global warming and rising seas.

Old Al's got the prognosis and solution for you and the climate scientists stranded in Antarctica ice.

Think WARM!

Bring your animals inside your house

they put off a lot of heat (but of course they smell a little).

I bet spit would freeze before it hit the ground

did someone throw a snowball at the top exit sign?

Either that or when they installed it they drilled the hole through the wall.

from the hole

people rarely insulate the holes they make for outlets and switches... it's sad. ;)

i can feel air pouring in on one of my switches. my back porch's screen door and windows look just like this picture. lol...

-7 F last night.

I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.

Look outside to see where the heat leaks out.

I have a roll of insulation, a dozen sheets of foil backed polyisocyanurate foam board, @ rolls of Class A, fire proof rated Foil backed bubble packing, but I am out of Great Stuff tm. Tubes of caulk, old towels.

That heat costs money to make, don't let it escape!

Yesterday's efforts increased room temp 5 degrees while the temperature dropped 10.

I'll check the roof for snow melt while the sun is high in the sky.

Free includes debt-free!

It's cold everywhere

It never gets that cold in Orange County, California, usually doesn't get lower than 45 or 50 degrees F, but this winter it's been getting down to 31 and 32 degrees F, which hasn't happened in like 10 years.

Weather dot com

Weather.com says the low tonight in Whittier (90606) will be 45, and they're predicting a high of 78 tomorrow.

I'm a native Iowanian, but moved to Minnesnowta when I was about 1, so don't remember much about Iowa. But one notable thing about Minnesnowta (By the way, I'm still a Minnesot'n at heart) weather is that it keeps the riffraff out of the state. ;-D

Freedom is my Worship Word!

We also nominated Ron Paul

We also nominated Ron Paul from the floor at the RNC convention. I was a delegate and went to the state convention. Words cannot express the joy I fealty that day. There was Ron Paul bumper stickers and signs EVERYWHERE! I snapped a picture of an old man about 80 something years old taking a nap on his chair at the convention while holding a Ron Paul sign. Best day ever!

Really? I'm looking forward

Really? I'm looking forward to warmer temperatures next week when we reach a high of -7 air temp. It'll be a heat wave!

I'm Looking Forward To

Global warming.

Failing that, it would be nice to warm the hemisphere. If we wait long enough, it'll happen.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

I wouldn't mind a little

I wouldn't mind a little global warming to. -70 wind chill is not conducive. However, I enjoy driving out to my fish house and pulling a fat Walleye out of the ice! It's great...we've got cities out on our lakes. You could drive a train on my lake.

Holy cow! Had to show that to

Holy cow! Had to show that to my 8-yr-old! We're going to be high of 11 degrees on Monday. In the 1970s/80s, it wasn't unusual in west TN to get down to zero one or two days in the winter. Haven't seen those kinds of temps in a long time. Can't even imagine the negative temps up north!

Wow.

We are suppose to see 17 degrees here in Louisiana Sunday or Monday night. We don't see that very often. I think it was four years ago we hit 12 degrees and the windows were iced over but I remember as a kid back in the late 60s it got so cold that spilled water "by some young boy" froze at the base of the wall in the living room. Old uninsulated house.

Anyway be sure and be thankful for global warming. :-)

19 degrees F

in Upstate South Carolina this morning.

Haven't seen these temps since I was in college in Potsdam, NY, circa 1984.

Across The State Line

Here in NC..just 15 minutes from SC, it went down to 17 and wind chill made it feel like 12. My daughter is in Burke County NC, and it was even colder there.
As much as I hate winter...I just hope we get a 3 day freeze in late February or early March..kill some of the damn skeeters off

I believe in Hope & Change..I Hope the government will Change

'Coldest air in decades' to follow storm

-----------------------
"Forecasters expect a weekend warm-up in some areas before temperatures plunge again, sending wind chill temperatures in areas in North Dakota and Minnesota to minus 50 degrees by Saturday night.

Those states are notorious for their cold winters, but states in the Mid-Atlantic and New England can also expect wind chill temperatures as low as minus 20 degrees." Apparently all thanks to a "polar vortex." http://www.foxnews.com/weather/2014/01/04/polar-vortex-to-bl...

Kind of reminds me of the movie The Day After Tomorrow. It's like a freezing hurricane.
