I didn't see this thread come over yet (if I'm wrong pls feel free to delete/merge).
I feel like...did anyone ever seen mean girls? The scene where the Gretchen Wieners gets told by Rachel McAdams to 'stop trying to make fetch happen'?
Thats what I feel like with the weather channel and the naming system right now.
That being said, at least Euclid has brought us some snow.
We got snow here in Dallas, but seeing as it was over 50 degrees that morning it didn't get the pavement and ground cold enough for any serious issues. Snow still on lawns, streets completely clear. And by this I mean Dallas definition of "snow accumulation" which usually means 1-2". It essentially meant that driving to the family xmas was a cold wet slog, and driving home was cold and wet with snow/sleet.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Jesus Christ, I hate holiday travel.
Still hasn't snowed in the southwest burbs of Chicago... although that might be changing as we speak.
Coldest early part of the winter with the most snow that I can recall in Edmonton. That said, human memory is a tricky thing, so it's probably nothing record setting. But it's certainly worse than the norm for the past 5-10 years.
I haven't had to bust out a snow shovel in almost 2 years now in Kansas City. Longest stretch of my 35 year life without a snow that was more than an inch or two. I almost bought a snowblower 2 Winters ago, because it and the one before it were SO bad. Glad I didn't.
I don't watch the weather channel. I hate spoilers.
Fuck the weather channel and their stupid winter storm names.
So, the weatherman said it was meant to be raining all night... LIAR!
Went from 65 to 32 here today, with 2.5 inches of rain yesterday. I liked the old winters when it got cold and stayed cold until Spring.
There's this stupid shitty cold front which has been in California for what feels like a week (although it appears it's only been like 4 or 5 days). I'm glad that fucker is on it's way to the rest of the country and it can get warm here again.
Been below freezing for 3-4 days straight here. Went to school today and the ground around sprinklers/hydrants was just frozen chunks of ice.
Been above freezing here for 24 hours and supposed to be for another couple days. It's not overly unusual, but it's pretty unseasonable. Kinda want it to drop well back below freezing because the roads are a fucking mess, going through a gallon of wiper fluid a day.
Looks like an ice storm headed this way. Give me two feet of snow over that shit. Still a ton of damaged trees here from Sandy.

Bro, is that celsius? Get that shit out of here.
It really was a balmy -7 in Chicago yesterday.
Sudden case of "oh yeah we're getting snow tomorrow, guys. Sorry for the late notice."
Damn you weathermen
Its been in the mid 80s in orlando for about two weeks now. While i too would trade in snow/ice for this in a heartbeat if that was my choice, it still fucking sucks. Way too hot here for far too long this winter. All i want is my normal 60s-70s winters, is that too much to ask.
Fucking Canadians and their celsius. Fuck'n Obama.
Farenheit is so much more precise.
Australian-Bureau-of-Mete-001.jpgGlobal warming is turning the volume of extreme weather up, Spinal-Tap-style, to 11. The temperature forecast for next Monday by Australia's Bureau of Meteorology is so unprecedented - over 52C - that it has had to add a new colour to the top of its scale, a suitably incandescent purple.
Sucks to be an Aussie.
IT GUN' RAIN
54 degrees isn't all that hot, btw. That's light jacket weather. Dunno what they're complaining about. Fucking nation of whiny convicts.
Most of our units of measurement do suck, but I do like the Fahrenheit system. Zero feels too warm to be worthy of the zero value. Fahrenheit zero is legit cold.
I agree with the Northern California people, we need this cold front to leave!
the cold front in phx sucked! all my plants died!
It's -9F(with a windchill of -26F) here today.
its burning over here..
btw I'm from an Asian country...
Also, visiting my kids right now in Northern MN. When I woke up this morning it was -27F with a Windchill of -55F
I do not miss it here at all.
Yeah, but it's a dry cold!
Heh, for cooking, mechanical/heating stuff, and hot tubs I go by F. For weather I go by C. Us Canadians are all goofy that way. Ask a typical Canadian how tall they are or how much they weigh, and at least out West, 95% will answer in feet, inches and pounds.Originally Posted by Alkorin
Yeah the -40 or so is a real treat today. They've already closed all the local schools for tomorrow because it's going to be just as cold.
Glad I work from home on weeks like this.

Went to start my car, it told me to frigg off and wait till spring.
Minus 35 degrees celcius with wind today...
People who quote the temperature including windchill should be kicked in the balls. That shit is garbage.
Have you been to Chicago in the winter? It's not garbage at all. Just like heat and humidity. 80 degrees (F) can feel extremely unpleasant with high humidity.
I went to boot camp right outside of Chicago. Fuck Chicago in its ass. I will never, EVER go back there in the winter. That was horrible.
Random snow in DC. Wonderful. I thought it wasn't supposed to arrive until tomorrow evening, but apparently they're still calling for that? HOLY SHIT A HALF INCH OF SNOW EVERYONE ON 95 DRIVE 10MPH AND STILL MANAGE TO GET INTO ACCIDENTS AND FUCK UP EVERYONE'S DAY!!!
Plus, I spent 2 years living in -40 BEFORE windchill. Ya'll pussies.
We- meaning the USA- should be on metric, -there are only 3 countries in the world i believe NOT on the Metric System- USA, Burma and Liberia (atleast according to wikipedia)
we cannot blame Obama for this...we have to blame, Reagan because he defunded the 1975 metric conversion act in 1981 or 1982 in a cost cutting move.
congress has passed a new conversion act for federal work projects,
bitch to convert at times if we get a job abutting a new highway layout. since i am so used to engineering convention for feet/tenths/hundredths
and the occasional rod & link measurements we get doing research for jobs. metric is just another "ok fire up the conversion program" aspect of the job.
weather wise...damn cold outside atm. was 3F when i took my son to his bus [email protected]:40 and was 5F @9am..

I didnt see any accidents yesterday on the way in but there were two types of drivers: (1) People who decided to do no higher than 20mph pissing everyone off; (2) people who decided to drive extra retarded because OMG OMG OMG I HAZ 4 WHEEL DRIVE.
I'm teleworking today I think. Snow is supposed to start at noon and I'm not trying to deal with that shit. Governments on unscheduled whatever the fuck so husbands also going to telework.
If i could telework, I definitely would not be here today.
I have to admit, the one redeeming part of this soul-sucking government proposal development business is that teleworking is extremely common. As soon as I see a single snowflake fall this afternoon I'm going to work from home. Fuck driving home in rush hour with the plebs.
yeah the day they can roll out classified networks to my house is the day I am never seen again at work. Teleworking would be very dangerous for me.
That will also spawn a series of "How many feet is 30 centimeters?" responses, at which point we will set facepalming to maximum.
We had our first inch of snow in almost a year last week... freezing rain yesterday which turned the roads into ice... it's 50 degrees and raining today and its going to be at least 60 tomorrow then back to a high of 19 on Thursday.
Sounds like typical midwest weather.

Huge snow storm may be happening Friday for Northeast. That, or not much at all. Yea, it's not much to go on, but it's pretty much all that the meteorologists will call for now.
So based on the weather models the tri-state area could get 2-30 inches of snow. I'm ready for 30 bring it on.
8-12 Inches of snow expected in this party of Jersey. Use to be time when Jimmie russlin didn't kick in till a foot plus. It's Armageddon here at the stores again, for a storm that will be over in like 6 hours.

Supposed to be snowpocalypse tonight but all I can say is come at me bro. We'll probably get a few inches of paltry snow.
This will be the first big winter snowstorm this state as a whole has had since jan 2011. Its not even a bad bad storm, but people here are stoll shaken up over the assfucking we got from Sandy. You say major storm around here people gonna lose their shit.
I am expecting 24" it should make the top ten maybe top five in Boston. I have the snow blower set. Wife already gota call from work not to come in on Saturday, kids got the day off tomorrow.
Will be lucky to get an inch down here. Don't graze me, bro!
Most stations I'm looking at say ~11inches for me over the night. Psh, yeah right, I'm guessing we get maybe 3 or 4, just enough for people to drive 30 under the speed limit even though all the main roads are coated with a layer of fucking salt.
We've got a cold front coming through that'll drop us into the 50's for the next few days!
if the wind is strong enough & enough snow falls that is driftable. my driveway by my garage will be BARE GROUND...for about 10 feet. then there will be a Wall of snow depending on the amount of snow we get, the drift could be 5-6' high, or higher.
blizzard of 78 the snow drift in my back yard(parents house not where i live now) was over 8' in height- they got pictures of the shed all you can see is the top foot of the roof peak
There was a half inch of ice on my entire car this morning. My entire apartment parking lot was out scraping the shit off their windows and everyone was driving with minimal visibility. Looks like this weekend will be pretty light overall for MI though.
Yeah we got fucking 3 in here in Livonia and they called of schools and shit, wtf is wrong people? 3" and call of schools? I remember slogging throug 6-8" when I was younger.
Here they have been saying light snow this morning resulting in less than an inch of snow, changing to rain for the afternoon. We have 3 inches already, and still snowing.
Also, we are at stormcon 8!!!!!1 We gunna die.

Yeah it was 78 here today. Post some pics guys if you get some snow. Been 17 years since I've played in the white stuff.
I'll post some pictures when there is snow accumulation worth posting. It's still pansy snowfall at the moment, but my workplace let everyone out early so I can't complain ;P
Also, Mass is banning all cars from the roads after 4pm, with some exceptions (media, healthcare, utility, emergency, etc).
yeah in jersey they warn people about bad weather, but they dont ban you. basically they say, you were warned. if you go out and get yourself killed its on you. dont expect us to rescue your dumb ass
In Ohio you can get a ticket for driving during emergency road conditions unless you are police/fire/emt/other safety related jobs. I think it's about 200 bucks. I've been pulled over once, but was let go when I showed my I.D. badge. It's actually not that bad driving in unplowed snow with snow tires and awd, better than when it's icy/semi-plowed slush imo. Usually my bigger concern is when the roads are unplowed and with blowing snow you can't actually see where the road is.
Even in Chicago the only road they ever close is Lake Shore Drive and that's only because 300 people got stranded on it a couple years ago during our huge snow storm
This storm is pretty lol worthy so far. We've been trolled.
