A look out of the glass elevator at work

CATAGORIES: GAS FUEL ENERGY,I hate it when this happens,WEATHER PHENOM — FloridaBill @ 10:34 am


It was seven below zero this morning. Wind Chills near 35 below. That is cold.

On the bright side, I paid $1.86 for gas, but it is apparently going back up..

Congrats to the Buckeyes and the Ducks!

The Ohio State Buckeyes beat Alabama in the Sugar Bowl on New Years day. The same day, the Oregon Ducks crushed the undefeated Florida State Seminoles and ended their 29 game winning streak. Now we see if the Ducks can end the current longest winning streak in NCAA Football and see if they can beat the Buckeyes on January 12.

I am almost too cold to care. It was ZERO this morning when I got up with a wind chill somewhere south of twenty below. We are set for another blanket of snow overnight (3-5 inches). Oh Joy! This means I get to shovel the driveway tomorrow morning before work in below zero temps!

However, The Buckeyes beat Bama and my hopes and dreams of yet another championship, the first ever playoff, were dashed. Congrats to the Buckeyes and the Ducks!

OMG. It is way too cold and it is not even Thanksgiving yet. It was 7 this morning as I drove by the bank and there was wind and occasional snow. Argh!

Another ice storm is gripping the south and it may be epic. Here in greater Chicagoland (also know as Tundra South) it is bloody cold again (minus 2 with wind chills that are just too damn cold to mention) and we are about to celebrate that the temps are going to reach into the low 30’s. I may run naked in the streets.

Hell likely freezing over right now

CATAGORIES: WEATHER PHENOM — FloridaBill @ 9:23 am

I am not complaining about how cold it is, because it wouldn’t do any good and frankly it is just too cold to bitch. It was MINUS 20 (f) when I left my house this morning! Wind chill is around MINUS 45! Enough to kill. It is still early Winter. Is it global warming that is making it this cold? That sounds oxymoronic. I heard that they closed Indiana this morning. Closed the entire state. Praying for an early Spring here.

How cold is it where you are?

I soooo caught this live…

All is well in Northern IL after yesterday’s storms. Yarbz and I were in post JuggFest football watching mode yesterday when the dang tornadic activity began and the Bears game was delayed by two hours (good call by them, it was dangerous). He and my wife both witnessed this event when I yelled, “is that a man buttfucking a cow in that sign in the corner?”. My wife paused the pic and Yarbz took a picture. He is convinced in was a sheep and not a cow. Surprisingly, Ed Curran did not mention it and they did not use that picture again. We had a very good laugh.

Moore, OK tornado

Tornado aftermath in Moore, OK. The devastation is unreal. At least 51 dead, many remain missing; 240 injuries and still counting. A horrible, catastrophic event.
