Polar Vortex
« on: January 30, 2019, 09:00:43 AM »
The temperature here right now is -25 with a -50 windchill.  Predicted high is -15.  The record lowest high temp is -12 for here.

It is supposed to reach -30 tomorrow morning and then start to rise to zero or so.

I just read in the paper that there is no mail delivery today due to weather.

Really?  It's only going up to 59 degrees in Tampa.  That's pretty cold when we don't hit the 60s.

So much for the old slogan of the Post Office!   :D

I meant 61...wishful thinking!

That is frigid in Fernandina and bitter cold in the Quads.

We're at -25 again this morning but the wind chill is at -40 as the wind is down.

It got to -13 yesterday to set an all time low high temperature for here.

Up to zero today and an inch or two of snow.

Mid 40's by Sunday for a 70 degree swing. 

Who said climate change?

Nineteen degrees in Moline today must feel like a heat wave.
