NO WIND? Must not be eating that southwest Tex-Mex food then.

Have fun, wish we were there instead of here. Going to zero in the next few days.

We are once again buried. 14 inches of snow....temp tonight is supposed to be -12. Winds are causing -45 wind chills. Huge chunk of ice and snow that built up on our bus roof broke of and tore our Christmas lights down with it. Snapped the wires at 7am this morning waking us up with a loud bang and a flash haha. What a day.

When I was driving cross country truck, I worked from Mar 15 - Dec 15 taking off the winter months. It's just to hard working in the snow. And in 21 years of driving, never hung any snow chains-although I had them with me. Living where it is snowy and really cold during the winter then hot and humid in the summer-don't quite understand that. Good Luck, TomC

The last time I checked, it was 0 with a wind chill of -21.  We got about a foot of snow last night with more to come.  Oh yeah, add in blowing and drifting to that.  The news says that I94 from Michigan City, IN to the Illinois state line is closed.  Gotta love lake effect snow.

Sshhhh Tom, don't say things like that, or we'll have a deluge of Yoopers amongst us.   I was chuckling when a returning Canadian's flight was canceled out of LAX, so he had to go to the beach here instead while waiting for another flight home.   Yup, winters here are tough.   Today we've got a windchill in the mid 70s.   Brrr.   Thank goodness for air conditioning.

Frosty dock at Newcastle Marine Park, across the channel from Nanaimo, BC.  "Cold" weather has chased all the tourists away so we have the dock entirely to ourselves today.  As long as the Webasto keeps running life is good.

Only got to about -5f last night.  About +12 at the moment.  Helena is on the fringe of the cold weather.  Glasgow, MT was supposed to get to -37 last night.  -5 is not so bad, but -37, good grief.   

At one time the record cold in the lower 48 was recorded just outside of Helena at -72 or so.  You could say Montana has extreme weather.  Minus 72 to well into the +100's.  Make sure you bring a coat.
