Chilly Weather, Anyone???

  1. I am from sunny Southern California and am not accustomed to this cold weather. It is currently 25 degrees in Fort Worth, Texas with icy roads and white powder covering the all the lawns and cars around here. However, the coldness is welcomed by me after the outrageous heat wave that blasted us this past summer.

    I was just talking with my Dh about how hot it has been lately, and then it turns to winter literally overnight! It was 27 last night! That's just too cold for an Az native! My heater has been acting funny as well. It will only run when it wants to. We are at it's mercy....

    BUT, I can finally enjoy some hot cocoa, sweaters and gloves!

    I remember those icy blasts that hit the OKlahoma plains this time of year. It could be so horrible. Sad, since I great up in Chicago, where cold is the name of the game. I guess I am too far-removed and spoiled. I was whining here in Seattle-Tacoma, where the high the last couple of days never made it past about 25-30. SO unusual for here. Oklahoma? Not really. The wind there was what got me.

    I live just north of St. Louis. We had hours and hours of sleet/freezing rain yesterday. It was hitting the windows (I hate that noise when I know I have to get out in it the next day....home today). The ice stopped around 11pm and turned to snow. We got about 6 inches, which is better than the predicted 10. It's soooo cold! Right now at 8a.m. it's 19 degrees, with gusty winds. Apparently there are many many people without power in St. Louis. Thankfully, we did not lose power. My husband is "trapped" in Dallas. He was supposed to fly home last night, but 300 flights were cancelled. Now he's been bumped to 4p.m. flight today. Lambert airport is accepting flights, so hopefully, he'll make it home today. Good day to stay indoors. I am going to put up Christmas decorations. My daughter already came out of her room with her coat/gloves/hat on wanting to go out in the snow! She'll have to wait a few hours before I let her go out there.

    Freezing rain fell in the nation's midsection Friday, and temperatures plunged from Minnesota to Las Vegas as a storm rolled in that could leave several states coated in ice.

    The temperature was a somewhat sunny 68 degrees earlier today. Now it is 35 degrees with ice and freezing rain expected by midnight.

    Central CA coast here, down to 24 during the night. It got up to all of 48 today. I'm used to just throwing on a jacket during the day here, even in winter. My toddler was so bundled up she could hardly move!
