    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Oh yeah. Growing up this weather was not uncommon. Played many a hockey game and was on the slopes at dawn in this kind of weather. Spent much of my childhood winters with no feeling in my feet.

    Just saw on the Tweeter: Antarctica is currently warmer than Mpls.

    They are winless in their history. Your information is incorrect.

    During the Frozen Era, yes, but as a Sotan you will appreciate the fact that they claim three championships during the Prefrozen Era.

    They ranked OR as worse than NY. I have no words for how stupid and wrong that is.

    Overnight low today was -15F. Predicted high for Saturday, January 21 is 42, currently. And the models are predicting rain that day. That's a slight change in things.

    Day-long snow here, much of which melted as it hit, leaving maybe 4 inches of white lead on the ground. Seemed too little for the snow blower, so I shoveled. Dam near killed myself.

    Dude, if it's too much for the Dakota SnoBlade it's snow blower time!

    Yeah, it might have been closer to 3 maybe. It just didn't meet the blower eye test. Totally kicked my arse though.

    I don't judge on the depth of the snow, I look at the plow berm. That dictates all else.

    Or if it's that wet heavy snow vs the fluffy stuff.

    What a crazy week of weather. Last Monday we had zero snow on the coast. Now we have 3 ft? Or so. Today has been as bad as I've ever seen it. DOT pulled plows off the road as they couldn't see. They posted 8 or 9 inches of snow on 95 at one point, thats unheard of here. Never seen so many businesses close, even gas stations/stores shut down.wal mart was open though.
