Yesterday a cold front blew through and iced everything up. 

Temps continue to drop, and it is supposed to start snowing tomorrow and supposed to hit a low of 4.... FOUR DEGREES on Monday. 

So.... time to make chili!


Pound of ground, pound of chili grind, onion, bacon, garlic, venison sausage, beer, chili powder, and a quarter pound of homemade smoked brisket.

    Welcome to the "Banana Belt" of Colorado.

    The coldest I’ve ever been in was -60 with wind chill. 

    A bit painful. But, I prefer it to 135 deg in Kuwait City with 90% humidity!!

    The ice is supposed to happen here Monday evening. Thankfully, the temps won’t be THAT low. Possibly hit the teens in the northern part of the state.

    I'll take the cold, I have a good coat. 

    Heat, on the other hand, much above 65 and I start complaining.

    Our fire chief said a guy got drunk a couple days ago and went in the ditch and had a compound fracture of his leg, called his buddy who was still at the bar to come and get him, got out of his vehicle to wait for him, and when the guy did not show up 30 minutes later he called 911, it was -21, he was not in good shape when they picked him up.

    My class today was cancelled.  Ice and multiple power failures.
  • LinefinderLinefinder Moderator Posts: 7,749 Senior Member
    -3F now, 3 hours after sunrise. Supposed to hit +10F around 2PM. Snow forecasted this afternoon. Low tonight of -15F, with a high tomorrow of 0F, with more snow. I've skiied and elk hunted in much worse,  but really glad I'm not now. The fireplace and coffee pot is really hitting the spot this morning.  Biscuits and gravy on their way.

    I guess the cancelling of the pipeline project really hit the brakes on this global warming crap...  who knew Joe was right!

    And that's quite a surprise to those of us who never thought he would be. I guess the laughs on us.  ;)

    Florida is not perfect, but I am damn happy to be here, especially in the winter. Was a bit unusual for February, but it was 80 degrees here on Thursday and melted an Amazon delivery of chocolate covered orange jellied candy.....damn, who would have figured?

    Since last night. Not feet like when I lived in upstate NY, but trying to stay home. Too many people from other states that do NOT know how to drive in snow or the ones that do live here thinking their SUV will save them.

    Temps are in the single digits today, with blowing snow.  Driving conditions are bad, with darn near white out  conditions.  It's a good day to stay home and stay warm.

    Oh man
    Today I was outside scrubbing five kayaks and the trailer.  Got a sunburn even though  it's only 84 here

    I'm generally fairly cold tolerant but I just filled my Yukon with gas and my fingers actually hurt before I was done. 
  • ZeeZee Senior Member Posts: 27,466 Senior Member
    In the 20s here heading to single digits. Water troughs are frozen and needing attention.

    Been sleeting for the last few hours, and it just switched to snow. Should get 2-6 inches of snow tonight and have a HIGH temp of 17 degrees tomorrow. 

    The roads are skating rinks and they are predicting rolling blackouts in areas of the state.
