Jeez, it's ridiculously cold here now. It's now -23, but with the wind, it feels like -36. I get out of my nice warm car, take 10 steps to my front door, and I'm frozen. My nose hairs froze as soon as I stepped out of the vehicle.

Ya, but that can all change in a hurry if things move around even a little bit. They are predicted the big dump to go south of us right now, which means we will stay cold.

One report I saw on the weather network predicted freezing rain on friday. If you think snow sucks you ain't seeing nothing till you have had to endure freezing rain. Pray that they are wrong.

Took a beverage outside with me when I went to shovel the driveway. It froze before I finished. It's not that big of a driveway either.

Well, they've really downgraded the amount of snowfall coming. I'm not sure if I should break this to my 6yo or not.... :(

I on the other hand am super relieved! :D

“When facism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”-Sinclair Lewis

A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."-Albert Einstein

Oh it could still come down bigtime on Thursday.

Basically with this cold air around a big dump is happening sooner or later. How long it stays is up in the air but it will snow at least a bit.

Colder weather moving in. Forecast to go down as low as -9 tonight and -13 on Wednesday and Thursday with highs in the -4 to -7 range.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

Long underwear helps.

But even in the far north where you would be prone to getting significant stretches of that I find the lack of light to be far more depressing.

Keep in mind that when it's -40 it's also usually bright out. I would rather have -40 than say freezing rain (which we have a danger of friday!!! :shock: )

Let's see...

My dorm room's heater vent is broken in the sense that my shut-off crank doesn't close the flap for heating control. I've been sleeping with my window wide open to offset the ~25-30 degree heat coming out of the vent... So should I boil to death tonight? Or freeze to death with the insanely cold air blowing through the window?

I'm hoping for a ton of snow to magically appear between now and tomorrow morning at UVic so I don't have a quiz....and then all the snow disappear mid Thursday so I can take the ferry home. >_>

The bed is literally centimetres away from the window though, so the wind literally blows into my face...
