Crazy Winter weather on the East Coast

Post by Duck » Thu Jan 04, 2018 4:49 am

Here I am in my living room, nice and toasty, watching the weather report about tomorrow's pending blizzard. It's supposed to dump a lot of snow on us here in Connecticut.

Then the weatherman starts talking about the crazy weather happening down South. Down South where they normally don't see snow; like Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. Through Minnie's posts we know Mississippi is in the grips of unnaturally cold weather. Yet areas that would normally see winter storms aren't. Go figure.

Anyhow, if anyone is experiencing unnaturally cold weather, stay warm and stay safe. I have a feeling I'll be snowbound tomorrow. If that happens I might fire up an online conference just to play with the service to see how it works. Anyone interested let me know.

Do let us know, Duck. I'd surely be interested depending on time. I've got a museum date with out of state cousins that'll take up part of the day. They're from the East coast and have shifted their travel plans to get back home till after the Monster Storm has done its due, and it's my day to be tour guide.

We used to hear that whatever the Eastern U.S. got, we'd get later. Not strictly true - but it might affect the airborne Gulf Stream allowing Arctic winds to sweep in. And our forecast is for COLDER!

Thought I'd share this image out my back window across to the neighbor's yard and beyond (that's his shed). Shot wide so distances look further out. According to the news reporters this is just the start. We're getting whipping gusts and the occasional whiteout.

Except I'm a displaced Nicaraguan. I was born and raised in the tropics. My playgrounds were the rainforest jungles and coconut trees along the lake shore. I'm warm blooded by birth. This cold stuff hurts my skin. :cry:

I'm going to go sulk in a warm corner with my hot cup of cocoa now. :pop:

Oh sorry, Duck, I didn't know! If it helps, I wasn't feeling very Maine-born stoic when I lived in the humid jungle of Washington DC :)

The best thing for cold weather is tomato soup, a grilled cheese sandwich, and a good movie! S-
