^ TWC said some places in Florida were going to be 21 degrees. I know those people will be freezing their butts off. I always laugh at people who move here from Florida and freeze in 65 degree weather.

"It's freezing!" You're crazy.

Be careful, Rou!

That's okay. They get to laugh at me when I visit Florida and melt.

I better not have a freaking ear infection. I've had one since childhood and it was the worst I could remember. I got it from a telephone. No joke. Outer ear infection that worked it's way inward as well. Double the obnoxious pain.

It is good for all that this is short lived. Several are areas not equipped and I've thought about my friends who live in very old houses. Their water will freeze in weather warmer than this. I sincerely hope their pipes do not bust. A couple days of extreme cold is bad enough, but more than that and they would be in bad shape for awhile. I also worry about the people who live in camper trailers (like the ones at the bottom of my road) and have small children and the elderly. Not the local elderly. As a general rule they had much colder winters than we have, have family and friends to help or are completely independent and better equipped than people half their age. It's transplants from warmer areas or those who are disabled. My boss was getting together a list of people to check on today and fire dept members were going to visit them and make sure they had supplies. They are good when it comes to that and inmates in our local jail go out in advance and split a ton of wood for occasions just like this. Most work construction (and evade child support), etc, and do not mind out and doing something when allowed.

I can not wait until Wednesday and Thursday. We will have sunshine today and tomorrow but 22 or 23 is our high today, back to 11 tonight, and a slow warm up to the 40's on wed & Thursday.

Glad you made it home okay, Rou!

Eeee! to all the footage being shown on GMA. I hate it for some of those people. They were showing a family in Chicago that were trapped in their car for 15 hours. She said, "We kept calling for help but no one would help". I hate that they went through that. I truly do but sometimes they can't help. Sometimes they can't get to you to help, and in temps close to 40 below they could easily fall over dead, too. And it is harder to help in the dark, in blizzard conditions. You often have to wait until day break. That is why warnings are put out telling people to stay inside. I know this can't always be helped (but don't take your kids out for a ride). I have to give those warnings and go out anyway but part of the reasoning for that is to let you know you may very well be on your own if something happens.

ETA: I would like to slap the reporter that sprayed water on a bus stop and pulled out a windshield scraper to demonstrate that the water instantly froze in -14 degree weather. Yeah, considering that things start freezing at 32 degrees, this knowledge should be a given. Sadly I also know it is not. I just hate how proud he looked after his demonstration. Oooh! I froze water. It's as annoying as all the dumba**es freezing their shirts on social media.

I just can't imagine temps that cold. I mean I lived in the UK until I was 28 - saw plenty of snow - and have been to the snowfields here in Oz, but I don't recall it ever being that cold.

It's going to be 41c here next Tues (106f). Yuck, yuck, yuck.

I can not imagine living in a place where temps like that are common. We have hit single digits numerous time. We were below zero during the blizzard in 93, in 1983 and the worst of my lifetime was in 86... until last night. That topped it. I'm in the 3000 ft elevation range and it made it to -18 below last night at my house. I can not even imagine what the 4-6000+ ft elevations were like. No thank you!!

I'm ready to put on a bikini now. We've made it to 6 degrees! Thankfully the wind is starting to subside.

Does anyone else get a bloody nose from the dry air?

I do - vaseline on a q-tip and put it up your nose to coat it
sounds gross - solves the problem

^^ also weird, but works, my dermatologist recommended lube for your nose.. the plain kind that some curlies put on their hair.. has glycerin in it.. can't for the life of me think of what it's called.

Now I just sound like a weirdo don't I?

I really can't stand all the news coverage of Tonya Harding. She was an evil b**ch 20 years ago and she's an even bigger evil b**ch now.

Pity me, pity me, give me all your attention. I didn't know my husband hired someone to destroy the knee of the person who would have been my biggest competition in the olympics. My life is so hard. I was suicidal. I have nothing to say I am sorry for. I'll keep doing 352 interviews, but stop bringing that up.

Whatever. I watched every televised show they skates in that year and saw the coverage when Nancy was attacked. My *** she didn't know. She was and still is a piece of work.

I was just reading through some Ogden Nash stuff and came across this:

Introspective Reflection

I would live all my life in nonchalance and insouciance
Were it not for making a living, which is rather a nouciance.

I understand the documentary that is bringing the whole ordeal back into the light but really I could care less about her 3rd husband or ... Back to banishment! She has a tendency to overindulge on the spotlight, and should not be given the option.
