Completely Unnecessary   17 comments


We won’t even talk about wind chill forecasts for the weekend.

And can someone please tell me why, if we have to endure such cold temps, we can’t get the storm at the same time so that it is all snow??? What is with warming up enough for wintry mix Saturday night?

That is really too much.

  1. It’s impossible to clear the snow when it’s iced over. I hope the weather folks have the report off by just enough:)

    • I know, right? We already have 6 inches of that kind of snow – we don’t need more. I hope they are wrong, too. Either about the temp or the storm, I don’t care which.

  2. We are suffering cold here too. I just converted our current temperature to farhenheit,

  3. (oops, hit the send button! ) and we are at -16F with windchill right now.

    • that is just crazy!!! Stay inside and keep warm!

      • The crazy thing is this is the warmed up version. Last week we hit over -40C with wind. -40 is where centigrade and fahrenheit both measure at -40.

        • And it isn’t even winter…Hope your furnace keeps on working!

          • We had half of our in floor radiant heat freeze up on us. At least we have an amazing plumber who rushed over and fixed it for us.

          • OMG, that is our nightmare! How do you fix that???

          • We had to turn the heat on full blast, over 40C in the house plus a heater over the affected area, and it took a day and a half to melt, then they bled off the line and refilled it. The guess is a huge air bubble stopped the water from moving and that it froze close to an exterior wall. We had a new boiler installed in the summer, so we think air was just accidentally in the line at that point and perhaps the line had never been working properly, but the freezing temperatures brought the issue to our attention.

          • Yikes – glad you were able to thaw it out! Hope you are all toasty warm now. We have a woodstove in the cellar, primarily to help keep the cellar warm when the power goes out so that the radiant heat won’t freeze up. We will be firing that baby up tonight, just to help all the systems keep warm, it is SO COLD today!

  4. Sorry to hear you’re so cold. Although in the UK we work in centigrade, so at first glance i was very confused 😉

  5. A double whammy. Mother Nature can be difficult. I agree, if we have these cold temps than let it be all snow. The snow and ice mix is difficult to work with. We don’t have snow yet, but I am looking forward to when it comes.

    • We have some snow on the ground, and flurries today, the wind is picking up. I think that is going to be more of an issue than the cold temps tonight, but tomorrow, it is a tie. I am a little sick of it already. Going to make for a long winter!

      • Maybe because I get hot flashes the cold and snow don’t get to me too quickly. We are still looking for our first real snow.
