It's 10 above right now. I took the dog out and
he pushed out a steamer that would have put
the Wiz's dog to shame. I'm so proud..

I would assume that at such temperatures all commerce ceases, all travel ceases and people just hunker down for various bouts of booze and sex depending upon their circumstances.



No life goes on ...not many walk anywhere in it

Last night we made in about 10 miles inside the Saskatchwan side of the boarder with Manitoba.... 30 *C below zero with 40*C below zero(( which is equal to 40*F below zero)) windchill.. that kind of weather we leave the big rigs running all night... doors unlocked and all. all the trucks were there still running in the morning...even thiefs don't make it out in that cold

This is how cold it is in Chicago.

Yesterday someone saw a deer that had fallen through some ice on a pond. WGN had the story on for 45 minute as we watched 2 teams of rescuers try to save the deer. It was a buck with a nice 5-6 points. The deer was pronounced dead from hypothermia. I found out after the Bears-Cowboys game. The entire thing may be on youtube. There are conspiracy theories. At least it's out of the water.

It's simple story that should have been about a deer in a pond, until the rescuers arrived on the scene,

The whole thing was wrong.

The pathway through the ice.
The other person on the other side of the pond.
The line of cars parked atop the embankment.
The helicopter. And the group of men at high ground.
The two men in the water.
The unseen gunman and a tranquilizer dart.
The person who may have stumbled upon it a week later, frozen. Solid in ice.

Someone had posed a theory the the buck would viciously attack the men trying to help it.
That it was stupid from the cold and would jump back into the pond.

A deer in a pond.
A deer in a pond...
A deer in a pond.

I put up plastic on the windows.

It hasn't been unseasonably cold here in the Buffalo area, but we're getting pounded with snow unlike any I've seen before. It started Tuesday afternoon and came heavy, and it hasn't let up yet (it's Friday afternoon now). It's not "blizzard snow" as there isn't any wind, it just keeps falling, and falling fast.

I haven't measured yet, but I heard reports that we passed 40" of accumulation, just from the last two days. And as I look out my window, it's still falling fast as ever.

If this is "global warming", I'm gonna build me a truck that runs by burning coal and styrofoam. I love it. And now, I'm going for a drive.

It snowed in Cairo today for the first time in
100 years. A sure sign of Global Warming,
according to Algore.

Perhaps the liberals should start touting another ice age. Then things will probably warm up. I'm freezing my ass of right now.

Did all the liberals on this board give up? I'm neither but I feel like I've lost my "fair and balanced" WoV coverage.

I.e. IT'S CALLED GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE NOW NOT GLOBAL WARMING GEEZ

Deathtrap! Won't ever catch me in a FWD in the winter. Thanks for supplying the video to support my winter driving advice =)

I'll be heading to da U.P. come February. And it'll be in a 440ci, rear wheel drive MOPAR ;)

Edit: Oh, and I noticed I mentioned the snow earlier in this thread. It started Tuesday and never let up until Monday. We had a day repreive, and now it's right back at it, hard as ever.

65" by last count. Bring it on!!
