Just another bunch of whiners - It's 7F this morning in NWI just ahead of us whipping the cheeseheads. Gonna be 23F by gametime and my dil (from Tejas) sez "nope she's staying at home". Her $95 ticket is going to the kid down the road who lives and breathes for a Bears win!

That's good weather for jumping up and down, yelling at the team, waving your arms and stamping your feet, without breaking a sweat!

Do they serve hot baked potatoes in the stands? They should, that was popular when I grew up to keep your hands warm.

It's been so funny talking to my teacher friend in Atlanta. They got about 5 inches of snow a couple weeks back, which essentially amounted to the apocalypse for them. Schools were closed for the entire week and the supermarkets were overrun in the days before with people stocking up on bread & the other essentials. Welcome to a typical winter day up north!

I did a project in Norfolk VA. On the 10 oclock news they said "Possibility of a trace of snow". When I got up, I turned on the news and it was listing all the schools that were closed. I thought, wow, must have gotten more snow then they thought. I went outside to go to my truck and it was 48 degrees. NO snow. When I got to work I asked about it.

They close schools and federal buildings in "Anticipation of Snow". I thought wow, in Wyoming, we'd never have school.

I've seen that happen several times in Austin as well, Weather forecasters predict significant precipitation and well below freezing temperatures over night, so all the major employers, schools and government facilities announce closures.... only to have very little of any of that the next day. The City even activated its Emergency Crisis center, only to have it become a moot point when the weather did not deliver.

Hardly one here has automobiles equipped to drive in those conditions, and even if your vehicle is so equipped, it is best to not be out on the streets with all those other drivers who are not prepared and don't know how to drive in it. It is like bumper cars with 3,000 to 12,000 pound vehicles.

.
I was working at a hospital an hour north of Norfolk, VA. One January day, there were snow FLURRIES and everyone that was working was ready to leave so that they would make it home. There was NO accumulation.

A snow storm in that neck of the woods before Christmas is great as the malls are abandoned.
