Anybody else in the deep freeze?

 

-21 this morning with single dig highs forecast.

 

At least the wind isn't blowing.

 

When it's this cold the snow is easy to shovel.

"Rain" is a  phenomena in which Actual Water falls from the sky.

 

Sometimes, it's only a few drops of actual Water,, ( we call that a "little rain"  ).

 

Sometimes,,, well,,

, we call it "Biblical".

 

 

Hey, SoCal guys, if it ever does actually Rain down there ,

fergawdsake get Woody offa dat Harley and  UNDER COVER !!

 

 

:o   if an Actual Water Raindrop ever hits poor Woody,,

It went from 55 degrees to 32 degrees in Chicago in just a few hours.  

 

Looks like 32 will be the high for a long time.

Winter Storm Watch in effect from Friday afternoon through Saturday morning... The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a Winter Storm Watch...which is in effect from Friday afternoon through Saturday morning.

Timing: snow will reach the Tahoe basin Friday afternoon with a period of heavy snow likely Friday night and early Saturday morning.

Snow accumulations: a foot or more above 7000 feet and down to lake level along the western shore. At Truckee...South Lake and the Eastern Shore...6 to 10 inches of snow is possible.

Winds: gusts of 30 mph or more in the lower elevations and gusts of 60 to 80 mph over ridges may produce considerable blowing snow...large drifts and whiteout conditions.

Impacts: hazardous driving conditions due to snow covered roads and low visibility. Temperatures below 20 degrees and gusty winds will lead to below zero wind chill values. Precautionary/preparedness actions... There is a potential for significant snow accumulations that may create hazardous winter driving conditions. Continue to monitor the latest forecasts at weather.Gov/Reno or listen to NOAA Weather Radio. Brong Http://weather.Gov/Reno

 

Well, looks like we are going to be snowed in until Sunday (5 to 13" here projected).

 

Seriously good powder skiing Sunday and Monday. This will be one of those epic snowfalls that would have had me hitting the chutes and faces.

It's snowing lightly here on the south tip of Vancouver Island. I'm not impressed. My digital thermo reads 0.3°C, so it's cold out there right now, but it's supposed to rocket up to 1° this afternoon.

was -31 last night, -25C right now. High today -23C

 

High tomorrow -31C, low tomorrow night -34

 

 

I will add, though... I have never felt so cold as when I lived on Vancouver Island and the temp would be hovering around freezing with close to 100% humidity... That's farking bone-chilling.

Just wait another couple of days it was 20 here in San Francisco this morning! I recall co-workers in Colorado figure about 2-3 days before what we have here in CA reaches them. Expected to be even colder tonight and tomorrow with a probably chance of snow here in the Bay Area on Saturday morning. Last time it snowed here in SF was December 09 I recall around the 12th or so it was right before we closed on our house. Neighbor up the street with a steep driveway had just moved in the night before the snow and backed out of the garage and ended up in the neighbors front yard across the street after his unexpected sled ride down his driveway.

Daytime it went from mid 70s to 40s.....brrrrrrrrr is right.

It was 20 here just east of the Oakland hills this morning at 7am. Haven't seen it cold like this in the Bay Area more than once or twice. I think early Dec 09 might be close though I think this cold spell has it beat on temps. Curious to see what happens Friday/Saturday when the moisture moves in either it warms up a tad or we get snow.

 

en it's this cold the snow is easy to shovel.

20 here in the East Bay H haven't seen this sort of temps more than once or twice living here my whole life. Early December 09 we actually got snow in SF and it stuck in some places like Berkeley hills, Walnut Creek etc. That was the week before we closed on our house in the East Bay so didn't actually see it here at the new house but did watch snow flakes falling at our San Francisco condo it didn't stick in SF but it did in the East Bay. Neighbor up the street told me they had just moved in,  have a steep driveway backed out of the garage and did the slip n slide down the driveway and ended up in the neighbors front yard across the street.. LOL

That must have quite the scene.

Well then, being that local friends thanked me for the warm weather I seem to have brought since I had arrived, now they might blame me for the cold.
It's the seesaw effect. What goes up must come down. Hahaha!

Oh shit.  Just checked the forecast.  3-4 inches (prolly 5-6 at my elevation) white stuff tomorrow thru Sat. a.m. and even colder...like 0 degrees.  Great.  Still haven't got water...2 space heaters on well-head for an hour and 1/2, 4 calls to water guy (who's swamped), tested pressure tank (ok), short-term improvement (almost 40psi) then back to fluctuating pressure guage (between 4-24 psi).  Crap.  Ice in pipes...moved to an elbow in the 100' rise, 400' uphill run from pump?  Fuck, fuck, fuck.

The old Family farm back in Plaino ill -- kept corn stalks to burn over the well pipes when they froze up. I can only think of one crop you have in Oregon that you could burn to de ice the pipes but I don't think its in your budget ;-)

 

I would book a room at the local hotel if you wait too long you'll be shit out of luck after everyone else moves in and finally decide to pull the plug and find a place with water. Or just go bottled for a while and hope for the best. Good luck!!!

 

I wrapped all the exposed stuff last night knock on wood no plumber projects on the todo list yet.

Yeah...1st time in 24 years.  And, it's been colder, longer here before. Had everything replaced last year except pressure tank.  Built custom insulated 3/4" marine ply box for well head, wrapped all pipes, etc at the time also.  New pump, 95' of SS pipe to pump, all new wires, new control box, new pressure switch and liquid filled guage, etc. etc.  Also replaced solar water heater system with latest & greatest.  Only thing not replaced was pressure tank...which tested just fine. So...WTF????

 

Now they're saying it could be ice at the pressure guage nipple....

A myth.  In the almost 1/4 century we've lived here, including owning/operating a grocery/deli for 19 of those years, we've only seen pot once.  Someone dropped a small bag in our store.  Never seen it "farmed" or growing.

 

However, we DO have a lot of trees...

So since it's so cold (approaching 50 already!!) here we decided to hunker down. We bought a big pork shoulder, a stack of tomatillos and jalapeños, and let a crock pit of chili verde go all day. It's almost ready. Built a fire, turned on the Christmas lights, popped a nice wine and settled in.

Below freezing for a few days here. Tonite is supposed to drop well below, and wind chill to boot. Tomorrow i have the privilege of working outside in a hydro substation. And i cut the tip of a finger off today.

While we're on the subject can anyone recommend a good space heater. I've returned three pieces of crap already including the $300 Dyson ceramic. I need it for a 30' x 30' bedroom with a 20' cathedral ceiling. There is a fan in the middle of the ceiling.

Thanks in advance.

it's not the space your trying to heat that matters

 

it's where you place the heater

 

I keep mine in the garage in DAGO and house stays warm  B)

 

when I was 2 years old in New England my Parents used the Car Heater to keep warm

 

till we got to DAGO = THANK YOU Mom & Dad !!!!!  :)

 

 

 

If you stay where you are pitch a tent or get an Electric Blanket and extension-cord that will reach around House

 

Make a Poncho !!!

 

or get a Dog like Clean has and sleep with it, Or a Facking Horse if you don't have room for the Dog !!

21 this morning 7am in the East Bay / Bay Area. It's been kinda fun but I'm Ok with it warming up now. If I wanted sub zero temps I'd live where they get good snow at least you get to play in the white stuff. However just my luck it will snow tonight and tomorrow morning here which would be kinda fun with the kids for a few hours - then it can go away and warm up.

Whats the estimate on the weather temp coming back up? Down here its looking like no warm up till Sunday. Hey Ancient M - if it turns out you need to head out before the water thing is sorted - shut it down so if it does manage to loosen up you don't find the house flooded or that your well pump ran for a week and turned your yard into a swamp.

It is shut down Bulb...of course.  More importantly it's shut down to protect the pump from running continuously. Damn good thing I added an on/off switch many years ago, along with a check valve....ya know, the kind of things that should've been there already  (I hate dealing with fucking amateurs in construction all the time....I mean, how hard is it to get it right?  I'm just an average homeowner with ZERO construction training or experience.  But...I know how to research shit.).

 

And, nobody is heading anywhere.  When the driveway is white...which is very rare...no one goes up or down, not even with a 4 wheel drive and chains.  We're talking 30-40 degree slope, hairpin turns, 1/10th of a mile long. 

 

As for the forecast, we've got a heat wave coming Monday: 39/14....that's the next earliest for above freezing temp.

Actually Uggs are the imported footwear of elitist angry old white men. Highly discriminatory. So I prefer Emus or Bearpaws.

Besides I prefer my footwear made in China.

My water professional owner showed up, climbed the snow covered driveway hiil on foot, and found a frozen/broken galvanized elbow in the only hose bib line I didn't check (color me embarassed as hell).  Since it was hidden from view (downhill behind RR ties retaining wall) and all new parts from a little over a year ago,  it never occurred ro me.  Damn.  Live & learn.

The night before starting this thread we flew home from San Diego, arrived Denver late and had to drive home.

We were in my old Suby that I had to "rewire" the heater motor. About Conifer the fuse blew, it was 17 below zero. We drove all the way home with no heater, she was not amused.

Precisely.  Because of my dumbass overlook, I chased ghosts for 2 days.  My wife insists that it was nearly impossible to see and that I did check all that was in sight, I still was an idiot for not checking every inch.  I'm normally very thorough, especially when confronted with a problem.  Maybe old age...?

I grew up in the Northeast.  The college sailing season started in March, and I loved popping on the drysuit to get out there.  Knew my crew was hardcore when she said she didn't mind capsizing because the water was warmer.  Fond memories of saltwater freezing on the weather side of my lifejacket, and thawing out my hands painfully after practice.

 

Now I live in Texas.  Here, they're happy to race when it's frickin' 105 with 2 knots of wind, but when it's 38 with drizzle and 15 knots, they call it off.  wtf...  I LOVE 38 with drizzle and 15 knots.  I show up in shorts on those days.

 

I guess I should move to North Dakota and buy an ice boat.

-40C == -40F

 

Whenever  it gets this cold, this song always comes to mind...

39F tonight and generally sucky.  Tomorrow low 40's all day and continued sucki-ness.  I don't even want to go downstairs and sit under the house with the patio heater on watching the boat swing in the lift.  Only 14 days left until the winter solstice and the days start getting longer...

 

I hate these cold fronts.  Good think I bought a case of rum the other day.

I just flew home from Northern Alberta  last night, spent a week in Lac La Biche,  -41c when I started the car , and it started..... with the wind chill there today they say you have 10 mins before frostbite.  And some locals are walking around in hoodies and runners. They look cold.

Which part of the province are u in goatroper?

Red Deer area...

 

this morning its sunny, clear, no wind -35C -- when there's no wind, its actually not bad out... even when it's this cold, the sun can do a surprisingly good job of warming things if the wind isn't immediately removing that heat...

 

Hah... first vehicle I had that had EFI was an 87 Ford pickup -- that thing would start second crank no matter how cold - wouldn't sound very healthy at first, though. Never did plug that thing in, but I probably should have.

 

What the heck are you doing in LLB? must be work as I can't think of any other reason to go there this time of year...

My son is the new staff reporter for the LLB post newspaper (first real job out of college) and if you want to be a journalist you start at the north west and work your way back to civilization, I went to help him relocate. Daughter is in Ft Mac so I'm getting familiar with the terrain.

This -35c shit was hard to get used to for an Ontario guy.

 

Come summer LLB looks the ticket for some good small boat sailing, its a huge piece of water.

I agree -- in the summertime, being out on the water (way out) is a fairly effective way of avoiding the mosquitoes...

Here in SoCal, the greatest predicted fears of StormWatch 2013 have been realized, we're suffering under a fearsome .01 inches of rain. The temps are not expected to break 60 today.

Pray for us.

A buddy just called, he fell on the ice in Denver and broke his hand, now his car is stuck in a drift up here. He needs help. Looks like I'll be rolling around in the snow with an air temp of 9f.

 

You should be praying for me.

I grew up in the Northeast.  The college sailing season started in March, and I loved popping on the drysuit to get out there.  Knew my crew was hardcore when she said she didn't mind capsizing because the water was warmer.  Fond memories of saltwater freezing on the weather side of my lifejacket, and thawing out my hands painfully after practice.

 

Now I live in Texas.  Here, they're happy to race when it's frickin' 105 with 2 knots of wind, but when it's 38 with drizzle and 15 knots, they call it off.  wtf...  I LOVE 38 with drizzle and 15 knots.  I show up in shorts on those days.

 

I guess I should move to North Dakota and buy an ice boat.

 

 May Santa leave a brass toilet seat in your stocking this year...

+5 f. 11am. Not that unusual. Colder coming.

But the trusty garage heater is tripping the circuit box. Overnight. Kind of like dragging at anchor, no?

So which glues don't work after they freeze? I hear GG doesn't.

What happens to composite golf clubs when they freeze?

Testing time......

46 degrees right now, I'm driving a car with no heater, the horror. :o

Think that's bad? I'm in the house wearing two sweatshirts, a jacket, pants, socks.....and wool gloves. Worse yet? I can't get the half-century old heater to fire up-----so I actually have the f'ng oven on.

Fml.....

 

 

what's the matter, it get down to 68*?
