You know it's cold when I get excited about it going up to minus twelve tomorrow.

My son is flying from 61F and sunny to 15F (-9C) and windy tomorrow.

At least we are supposed to get some rain.

Ah that's nothing! Check out Lahinch, just near the Cliffs of Moher...

But like I said, no problems here in Shannon. Hard to believe, less than an hours drive away.

Wow. (that picture).

There's a bad one headed up the East Coast of the U.S., too. They're calling it a "bomb cyclone" because the pressure is dropping extraordinarily fast. We're under a blizzard warning with strong winds and 6-12 inches of snow expected in the next couple of days (nothing yet), but farther up the coast, the winds and snowfall amounts sound like they could be extreme

There's already snow as far south as Florida, and a friend tells me Charleston has had several inches with more snow coming down fast.

The name of the storm is Eleanor, no doubt named after my grandmother. Way to go, Grandma! :banana:

If you do a youtube search of "storm Eleanor" you'll see some amazing footage.

Meanwhile, we're starting another cold snap, just days after the previous one ended. Environment Canada has issued a "Severe Cold Warning". We're going to have windchills of minus thirty-nine. Thankfully, it's only going to be for a couple of days this time.

I'm really tired of the extreme cold. :( I have an old quilt tacked up around my front door to try to keep the air from pouring in. I need to figure out the weatherstripping issue! And I need to get my curtains up.

That gave me hope. I went to check.

It's supposed to get up to 30F/-1C tomorrow! And there are 50F/10C and 54F/12C days later in the week. Our windchill last night was -20F/-29C.

Just one more night of < 5 F temps here.

You know it's cold when the snow you tracked into the garage never melts.

RIght! Or the ice that fell off of your windshield protector into your car never melts either.

We are having a "winter storm". It consists of moderate amounts of rain.
