snow and cold

Post by lance » Jan 30th 2004, 9:09 pm

Weather report from Cincy:

We got 4-5 inches of snow and ice on Sunday shut down most of the city. The storm struck about 1:00 pm.

The blasted library (where I work) did not close. Several employees had a hard time getting home. My co-worker ruined four tires trying to get up her street. She was literally burning rubber trying to get traction on the icy roads. My other co-worker passed a snow plow that had become stuck trying to get up a hill on the West Side of the city.

More Snow thursday night. Tonight it is very, very cold. When I left work at 6:00 pm it was 7 degrees with a wind chill of -7. Supposed to get down to 0 degrees tonight. Tomorrow will be a balmy high of 15 degrees. This is about 14 degrees below our normal high here.

So time for more hot chocolate.

Argh, it's that time of year again. It's currently snowing in most parts of southern Germany, already 5 cm where I live. I can't remember a year when it started snowing already so early in November. The trees even still have some green leaves on! Of course, I didn't have time yet to remove the summer tires from my car and put the winter tires up ... well, I guess I know what I'm going to do on the weekend :-(

I hear ya girl, we don't have any snow sticking yet, but we're starting to get it. My hubster is trying to finish a short film and the poor actress who is the main character still has about 3-4 hrs of exterior shots :shock:
poor thing I sugested a sleeping bag to stand in while they set up the shot, then she can jump out and just do it and jump back in.

The only good thing is we will be able to ski soon!

Anyway, no snow for me yet. It certainly is early. Although the weather has become noticeably colder over the last few days. :(

Hehe ... yeah, that happens quite often. Germany is probably one of very few countries where Sascha is mostly a name for boys.

I knew a girl named Sasha (spelled differently) in elementary school. I had a friend in high school named Kelly (a guy), and his brother was named Shannon. Their parents wanted people to NOT assume what sex their children were when they learned their names, but mostly people thought they were girls. I kinda like the name Kelly for a boy, not Shannon so much. Adrian is another genderless name, and Ashley, and Lynn.

Back to the thread topic... I can't wait for it to snow here! For some reason I'm really excited about the winter weather this year. It's finally chilly today! I hope there will be a little snow when I go back to Wisconsin for Thanksgiving in a couple weeks.

No more green leaves here. I live in Syracuse and fall seems to have gone by so fast! It seriously feels like it should still be here and snow should still be something we only think about and not see. But Monday was the first snowfall. It's kind of nice though. The first snowfall. Up untill the end of Christmas I am fine with it. But I know I'll be complaining in February.

It snowed here on Halloween. Funny how perception changes: when I was a kid I hated rainy or snowy Halloweens, but now I'm glad that it kept most of the little urchins away!

Oh boo on you, Nostradamus! :wink: Growing up in Wisconsin, we had to incorporate our winter coats into our Halloween costumes! Rarely was it warmish on halloween where I grew up. Can you imagine a ballerina or fairy with a puffy green winter coat? :D

It was in the upper 40s here in Kansas City today and I wore a long sleeve tshirt and a sweatshirt. No jacket! Well, I guess I'm just tough. :wink: I actually did start wearing socks & tennis shoes today... until today I've been wearing sandals. (I hate wearing socks!)

What was the temperature, emmie? I can't even imagine breaking out the jackets when it's above 50 degrees. I have a friend in South Carolina that always tells me how warm it is there, they never get snow, etc. My cousin and her fiance moved from Florida to Seattle at the end of the summer --- that has to be a temperature shock! When I visited my aunt last summer there (who has lived in Seattle for 30 yrs) she said you could only stay alive in the Puget Sound for five minutes tops before you freeze to death. Cold!!!

it got down to the upper 60s with a breeze yesterday. and then of course today it was back up to the upper 70s. the south is so crazy, you never know what to expect. not to mention we don't have a proper autumn. but basically I'm a wuss when it comes to cold weather. I also have a light sweater with me at all times because my classrooms are so freaking cold! ha ha

I know what you mean about cold classrooms. I constantly dress in layers here in Kansas City because of the heating/cooling systems in my campus's buildings. During the hot months, I admit that AC is all right, but they set it SO COLD in the buildings. I have to bring a sweatshirt with me when I go practice at the PAC (performing arts center) when it's in the upper 80s outside. Now that's it's cooler outside, the heat is turned up SO HIGH in those buildings that I've been wearing tank tops under long sleeve tshirts & sweatshirts so I can take those off when I get inside.

It's weird --- it seems like the people here in KC don't have a happy medium when it comes to temperature: they like it REALLY HOT or REALLY COLD. The roommates I had last year turned the heat up to 75 as soon as the temperature outside lowered to about 60 (in my opinion, it didn't need to be turned on at all yet at that point). And I wanted to tough it out for a while longer because I don't have a lot of money. In Wisconsin, we don't turn the heat on higher than 65 in the dead of winter, so I guess I'm used to being in a cooler house in the winter.
