Current temps on left. 10-30 below normal East of Mississippi. Wind Chills on right. Feels like Sub Zero from DC northwards.

Mt Washington Wind Chill is actually -63 but this software is capped out at -50 (don't ask)

Clear Skies, Full Sun, Mid Afternoon and temps only in teens & single digits north of Philly.

Hope you guys are staying warm. My wood stove damper is fully open and it's trying to kick some cold butt. lol

Deep cold, lotsa' snow (with inches of ice underneath), frightful windchills, etc.
lead to this sort of menace, which I'd never encountered before.

Went out to shovel snow today, and noticed this beastie (3 foot long ice needle) suspended on power line btw. house and utility pole.
Phoned the power company, who said there had been outages in this area, and that they'd send a crew tonight ('cause this icicle won't be melting anytime soon).

At least it was sunny out today...

Looks like the icicle is on telephone wiring or fiber links.

GMP came along a few hours after I called them up, and their crew (using the incredibly long pole) safely broke apart the floating needle of death, was neat to watch.
That wicked bad icicle was making me seriously nervous, with the weight of it pulling on line/cable-so I'm grateful & relieved that it's been neutralized.
Never a dull moment, the adventure & excitement of winter weather

Minimum temps this morning the coldest in decades "for the month of February" for many. I haven't checked for Vermont but something tells me maybe not.

I think yesterday was worse...this morning didn't seem that bad. Just hasn't warmed up during the day at all.

Why is Vermont such a nice state? To steal North Dakota's state motto, "Thirty below keeps out the riff-raff."
