It finally stopped snowing yesterday.  I love snow but it was becoming boring since it didn't stop and it was also getting boring following bad drivers down the highway at 35mph  Lots of extra cars parked in ditches. 

New snowfall record set for this area.  Beat the old December snowfall record and then snowed for another 2 days!

It was -26F here NYE.  We'll be at the Packer game tomorrow.  Could be the coldest ever, but I doubt it.  Start time chill factor will be around -24....and it will go down from there.

Ha ha, they don't dangle as low in the cooler temps Syb.

Warmed up to nearly zeroF here while Ontario and parts east are complaining that it's cold at -40C/-40F.  Sheesh, we had that temp for a couple weeks already.  Nice and warm now.  anything about 40F is shirt sleeze weather here.  Love the snow and it's nice and soft when it's cold snow.  Warm soggy snow sucks and is wet.

I'll take solid white snowflakes to soggy, muddy raindrops anyday.  Grew up and spent mopst of my life in Vancouver where it "sipposedly ideal climate" and I think that I was waterlogged most of the time I lived there.  I prefer 4 wheelin through snow and ice over stuck in the mud when it's cold.

I've driven my blown viper across the continent through snowstorms and icey roads.  Not much of a problem, but a couple good thunderstorms and water puddles on the highway caused me to headon a Semi with my first GTS.  Ice is better than rivers and lakes on the highway.

Hard to believe the big deal they make out of cold weather these days.  Anything for a continued story in the 24/7 news cycle.  It was -37F chill factor here yesterday and a few inches of snow.  Not a big deal at all.  I will say they did close the schools.  Why I don't know.  We never had a school closing for cold during my entire school days time.  It was just as cold or colder.  We had much less warm clothes back then.  We wore overshoes over school shoes.  That was it. We walked a 1/4 mile to a bus stop and waited for the bus.   In the mid to late 70s & 80s I worked outside all winter long when the temps sometimes never got above zero for a month and the chill factor ranged from -20 to -50F below.  We were working sometimes up high (120') building iron ore pellet load out conveyor systems.  Never was work cancelled for cold then.  You had to stay very busy to keep from seizing up. 

Yeah I know:  another one of those "back when I was a kid" stories ;)

We live in a very pampered country now. It's sad.

Steve,  :lol:

Wait!  I walked 3 miles to and 3 miles home from middle school.  Only 2 miles to High School.  I had boots for winter and a bicycle for spring and fall.  I lived in the Vancouver suburbs thiough ....

It did get 24" snowfalls but it usually only lasted a few days before melting
