    SOMEONE GET ME THE HELL OUT OF HERE

    Post by m7_b5 on Wed Jan 14, 2009 3:59 pm

    From weather.com in Chicago


    IN ADDITION... TEMPERATURES WILL PLUMMET TONIGHT TO 10 TO 15 BELOW ZERO OVER NORTHERN ILLINOIS... AND 5 TO 10 BELOW ACROSS NORTHWEST INDIANA. THIS... COMBINED WITH A BITING NORTHWEST WIND WILL CREATE DANGEROUS WIND CHILLS OF 30 TO 40 BELOW ZERO TONIGHT. THURSDAY NIGHT WILL BE EVEN COLDER WITH LOWS APPROACHING 20 BELOW IN OUTLYING AREAS... THOUGH WIND SPEEDS WILL BE DIMINISHING.



    Ugh. Anyone live in a warm climate and have a room available with internet access? LOL.

    I'm in buffalo, it's the same type of stuff right now. I'm just hoping that my classes will be canceled tomorrow because of the cold!

    I love having a landlord who cranks the heat all the time. So even though it is 8 degrees out right now, I'm nice and toasty. tongue

    Now, living in from Chicago, I could normally relate. However, I am in Wisconsin this week (and the next, and the next...) and it's 10-20 degrees colder right now.

    This afternoon around 4pm when I called the wife to say hi, windchill in my Chicago suburb was 12 degrees. Here in Waukesha Wisconsin though it was 19 below already, with minus 39 or worse expected overnight.

    So...it could be worse Shocked

    Must be all that global warming...I mean...climate change...I mean...Whatever the heck they are calling it now. Laughing

    The apartment complex put out deep freeze warnings here today. The next two days aren't supposed to get out of the teens and there is supposed to be snow this weekend which is fairly rare around here.

    I feel for you guys living in the colder areas. No It's 72 deg. here in AZ during the day.

    Of course when you guys are enjoying your mild summers, we're here sizzling like bacon. ... I know I know, but it's a dry heat. But 115 deg. in the shade is still freakin crazy no matter how you slice it!

    Right now in Chicago its sunny and -4, -23 with windchill factored in. That's at 11:34 CST. So right now it's about 40 degrees colder outside than it is in my refrigerator...

    Weeeeee.......

    On the plus side I haven't seen a rat in my alley when throwing out the trash in quite some time. Not that I think they are dead, you can't get rid of Chicago rats. But at least they are hiding.

    Where abouts in the burbs are you? I am originally from the north west burbs myself. When you get back from Wisconsin it won't be much better. It's cooooooold.

    1 to 2 feet expected in Buffalo tonight.

    Not that I'm surprised. The reason we wanted an apartment on the 2nd floor was so that we could just walk out our window onto some packed snow if need be. Laughing

    I hear you, Brakk, and have shared your pain. (Lived in Mesa and Tempe for 6 years.) East TN is normally pretty mild, but every now and again we get a piece of the Arctic Express. Last night, and tonight, are one of those times. My backyard wx station says we 1 degree over night and they are calling for more of the same tonight.

    I can testify, and the folks living in the colder climes can corroborate, like the heat, once you get past a certain point the numbers do not mean a thing. It is just fricking HOT/COLD!

    At least with it being cold, you can get a the fire going and find a friendly body to cuddle up with. When it's too hot, those are the LAST things you want. Personally, the cold is more fun. (As long as you don't have to go out in it.)
