Title: The Official Weather Thread.
Post by: Ice Cold on December 19, 2008, 16:15:06
Well got part one of the 3 part "Snow-margetten" :pound:
With the winds blowing 50mph+ for 6 hrs, we got some over the bumper/give it gas and don't let up drifts. :driving: Well at least it's only 17F + wind chill, -8c for the high
I'm dragging the undercarriage through the snow in my part of town.
Front of my car is all caked in, and I don't really want to bust my grille. :blink:
But hey, my Dip and 4 snows, the drive home was a pc of cake. :p

Got about 3 hrs of digging to do. :doh:

started as sleet today down by work. turned to snow and sleet alternating every hour or so all day. then to rain in the PM.  Mostly snow up here by home.  2 snow tires and 2 decent front tires + lots of weight in the trunk, didn't have any problem driving all day. (except maybe dealing with idiots in SUVs... :pound

We got about a foot today, then it drifted... it was pretty windy all day too.
I did the driveway about 10:30am, then did the neighbor's. I went back out at about noon, & had to do both driveways again.  :blink:
The plow truck did pretty well.
I attached a couple of pics of what things looked like just after noon.

Yeah, it's a little snowy even down here in Windsor. I spent about an hour out with the kids yesterday afternoon getting the driveway clean...and I certainly do NOT have a large driveway (heck, park 2 cars and it's done...LOL).

Mostly rain here, the ground is saturated long already so it puddles on the grass then runs off. Makes it miserable walking the dog.

I'm still looking at the snow wondering why it's still in my driveway. >:(
Well I guess I gotta get up off my butt and shovel it. :pound:

2 1/2 hrs if I can get into my other Dip or 3 if I have to shovel around it.

Another storm tomorrow. :x

Why does everything on our cars and anything else we own always tend to break whenever it's too cold to work on fixing them?!

Spent the last two days reconstructing my outdoor water line when it was 23*F outside because even with heat cable the %#$# thing froze solid. Haven't seen the sun in two weeks. and it's supposed to snow and get to 9*F, which is unheard of in Kentucky  :rant: :rant: :rant:

I hate winter too, gloomy, dark, nothing growing, not one bird chirping or any wildlife, only makes it seem more lifeless. i'd be in debt to any doctor who can induce true hibernation in humans so i could simply bulk up, go to bed, and wake up and it be spring! think about it, less energy spent, less food wasted (you'd be living off fat reserve, and wouldn't need to eat all winter) heating/electric bills reduced since it is irrelevent, no gas used since you won't be driving, and plus, SKIPPING WINTER!

Yesterday we got 8-10 in of snow in Southeast Wisoconsin, with 35 mph wind gusts, had me shoveling 3 feet of drift snow in the back of my driveway. Couldn't go to work, car would get stuck right out of the driveway, city didn't plow our street until 6pm  :( what a miserable day. Now we are supposed to have another 4-6 inches.
Title: Re: The Official Weather Thread.
Post by: Ice Cold on December 20, 2008, 17:27:53
That's pretty well my story too. :x
Spent 3 1/2 hrs shoveling.
The snow was a high as the door handles on my other Dip. :blink:
All 4 drs are frozen again, so I had to shovel around it.
-13c. :x

And another storm tonight :doh:

water still out. it was going until i decided to take my shower, then bam! just stopped. i even washed my dishes just 5 min before. how it did so that quickly is beyond me  :rant: one of my reasons i hate winter. it's not the hose, it's frozen at the water main itself  :rant: :rant:

Oh and the beautiful part, it's a nice sunny 18*F.

put either hay or vermiculite on your water main... and heep that heat tape on it. im not back to work yet since my injury, but i know my crew is busting their you know what on service calls for people too scared to go out and do it them selves. lucky me... in october when i impailed myself and got that nasty infection, i woulda never thought i woulda been out for 2 months. and im with everyone else that is wondering why all the things that break when its cold, are under the car. I gotta go fix a "rusted" through freeze plug...on my pick up. its the only thing i got thats 4wd

Help! :pound:

Got up this morning 5am, thought I'd go to Walley's when it's still quiet.
Was greeted by bumper high on a Dip snow.

Took a few tries to get out of the driveway. Had to plow a path, so back till it got stuck, then all the forward and a reverse "go 4 it"

For the 1st time in 10 yrs, I said NO WAY to shoveling, got on Kijij and got a plow out. :p

Fixed the water main, some nimrod had the main coiled with over 10ft of heat tape and i had about 1-1/2 feet of hose that had none, so that part froze up and the ice jammed the rod that the handle that shuts off the main goes to (and i had shut it off to protect it overnight so that took some work to defrost) but then i still had 1ft of ice left in the hose, so i uncoiled part of the main heat tape and had that extra foot covered up plus redid the main itself. no more frozen water lines  :w00t:

My inlet is still prone to freezing but thankfully all that takes is some boiling water and it's fixed. 

Plus i finally got the new toilet in, gawd how i love having one that works now! :D that cheap-o plastic one that was OEM was total crap. it's a real one, the kind used in homes. not those crappy RV ones. with winter still there at the time i also ripped out the propane oven/stove and completed my built-in electric griddle iron plus use the space that the rest of it hogged for a nice built-in surround sound system  :w00t:

its -17 out here but no snow coming down. we got that the other day. I never bothered clearning the car off but did it today to go out. Got gas and it spilt out of the nozzle on the side of the car so I had to wash that off and the water was turning to ice the second it touched the car. We had rain the end of last week that cleaned the car off but the roads are dry and covered in salt now that is blowing everywhere so the car is all dirty again. At leat its white so it doesnt show as much.

Post by: Nickdalzell on December 31, 2008, 13:54:20
26*F today, about 18*F tonight, and then tommorrow it's going to be 53*F and then 30s at night. that constant up/down swinging is what gets me prone to catching colds. my body just doesn't like to change that much in one day :D

Was 60*F yesterday. i could do without the violent winds though. south winds from 40MPH, then switching to frigid NW winds at up to 60MPH. geez  :hmm:

Best part so far? first Nov/Dec with ZERO snow!  :w00t: let's see if i can live one year without the mess of that plus salt.

We got a big snowstorm a few days ago. I had to goto work early and it wasnt too bad but by the afternoon when I went home it was almost upto my knees and it was still snowing. Our street wasnt plowed yet and only had it pushed down where cars drove. I had to shovel the driveway to get in. I also had a bad battery and changed cars around so I could change it in the nice warm garage instead of the cold driveway. And of course the snowplows drove by while I was doing that. go out and look and the snowbank is higher then my waist!! So we had to shovel that stuff out of 2 driveways at 10:30 at night to move the cars back again. Now theres a big snowpile from what was in the driveway that you can hide car in. Yesterday it was down to something like -20. Winter is so fun.

Post by: Reggie on January 17, 2009, 19:55:44
It was 4*F this morning in my part of MD.  The water pipes in the bathroom froze last night.   They freeze up pretty easily because part of the bathroom is over open airspace in the garage.  I finally got them thawed after I realized that if I closed the laundry room door just below the bathroom, it trapped the heat coming from the register in the floor.  The trapped heat warmed the ceiling drywall above it and kept the airspace above it where the pipes were warm enough to keep them from freezing. :thumb:  Another old trick is to let the faucets trickle a little bit to keep the water moving.  There have been lots of water main breaks around town too.  :doh: - RR

stupid sasafrassin, snow! we got about 2 inches of the crap. just when i thought we'd escape it for the first time!  >:( :rant:

BTW i figured out how to drive in this stuff, either get a running start and don't stop (uphill) or go completely in reverse. the extra weight in my trunk only succeeded in digging me in deeper from a standstill, car won't pull the weight uphill, if you stop. if you are already going at least 20mph it's fine.

In reverse the axle doesn't slip one lick. don't know why that is but if i was better at reverse driving i'd just do that. going uphill in low or Drive, the car will attempt to get to 2mph and then spin one wheel. doesn't take anything. weight makes it worse on a grade. level ground it's just fine, reverse no problem (if it were legal.)

Just had a big snowstorm a few days ago. Two full feet came down - a solid 24 inches.

What do they call 30cms of snow in Toronto?

Snowmageddon.

What do they call 30cms of snow in Fredericton?

To add in humor, about 1" of snow will prompt Kentucky to add this much salt to the roads, this is my Fifth after that:

Trusting the forecast for Friday (today) I signed up for a vacation day last nite. Anyway, I'm glad I did. Eight quarters later and all the salt was off the Diplomat. My black painted wheels looked light gray. The application of two different brands of glass cleaner (one of them that Rain-x stuff which does work BTW) and a single edge razor blade for the tough spots and the windows are looking good.  All done sans coat. Sweat shirt weather today here in south central PA. Next up, the Neon with a bad rod, out came the blower motor for daughter's coupe. Then, while I was working on it, a battery charge and some running to circulate fluid. Get this, the temperature change was so great, up from the 20's to the low 50's today, it spewed coolant when I took the cap off to check before I started it. Unfortunately it started to cloud over and I had to put my jacket on again. Saturday it's back to winter.

Its still cold around here but not as cold as the last couple weeks. Streets and parking lots around here have been white and covered in snow since the beginning of winter. I want to wash my car sometime but I cant do it in the garage and its way too cold to do it outside without a working hot water tap for the hose.

Speaking of the Amish they're probably laughing their heads off at us at our inability to thrive without our precious phones/computers/lights/heat here in Ky and Indiana...

They're right though, modern junk can bite when it stops working. i think that people have always been too comfortable with gadgets to the point that they have no real survival instinct come one day when it won't get restored. this was a great way to find out the reaction.

Tuesday nite leaving work the was an inch of fluffy snow on everything. Driving east out of York toward the Susquehanna it stopped. Across the river the raods were just wet. Stopped at the Marietta Sheetz for a sub a lady coming back from the swim meet in Litiz said  PA Rt 501 was shut down due to 5" of snow. Litiz and Manheim got a foot of snow in places from the squall. Tonite there was nothing in York and a half inch on the roads in Marietta. It like the thunder storms in summer around here. One place will get drenched and a couple of miles away the sun is out and it's dry as a bone.

Lots of melting snow, so I 'assumed' the extension on one of my waterspouts fell off due to the high snow and was under the white stuff.
I dug around then started to poke the snow w/ a shovel
Where did the [Edited by Farley's] thing go?? :blink:

supposed to get another ice storm Wednesday. key word: supposed . we have gotten two rounds each year, the second is of lesser magnitude but normally hits us in early March. usually one-two days without power when that happens. Good news, i got me a generator so i'm prepared. plus about 4 of them red cross meals from the last storm.

Upper 30s-lower 40s as high so far, 20s to upper-teens at night. it's at least sunny, but it doesn't feel like Kentucky any more, a lot more like Detroit.

Nope, this one is a new one. a 1995 model. ducted A/C, super-slide and all. but i guess the A/C is useless. at least till mid-June if i remember last winter when it didn't truly end the freeze/defrost cycle until about late May to mid-June.

Schools,2 hospitals,malls, businesses closed.
They're pulling the buses off the road at 11pm
No subway/street car or ferry service.
Also 11pm they're pulling the guys out of the airport control tower and sending the airport fire dept home. All flights are on their own after that. :blink:

Big whoop it's rained so far here it's been a week straight and one more rainy week to go. they should start issuing 'Monsoon warnings' since that's the best description of it, weeks of endless rain.

One of my Ms has a wet floorboard in rear. floorboard. in rear. car hasn't moved. so wth?! there's no spot in the roof or headliner so the roof isn't leaking, so what it's raining UP now?! oh and to top it all off, in addition to one dead mouse from suicide into my blower motor a few days back apparently he's brought a friend. now there's one dead mouse and one live one.  :rant:

Well, we must be in the same weather pattern because it's the same here in MD. :pound: :doh: :doh:  The guys that work outside are getting clobbered in the pocket because it's too wet to do anything and the ground is too soft to use equipment.  I had a HUGE 40' to 50' tree fall over on my property one morning last week while I was outside.  The tree was healthy but the roots just couldn't hold because the soil was too soft.  Man, it sounded like a freight train crashing through the woods and startled the heck out of me.  Fortunately, it was about 50' or 60' down in the woods from the clearing because I think I would have pooped on myself it it had been closer.  :D :D - RR

Yeah. Global warming has really hit us hard. We used to get 1 snow every 4 years. Since a while after "global warming" we started gettin 4 snows every year. Can't get away with no snow tires this winter.

few inches of rain and  lots of wind damage expected.. it sucks... my parking spot, is by 3 of the 4 poles in the whole lot  :pound:

65mph+ winds here is nothing this time of year. something that has happened every week or so during winter. Alberta Clipper is happening here now and it's going to be teens and 20s all week. awful cold for December. worse than last year, calling for a worse Ice Storm next month too.  :x

We have strong west winds and the system came from Colo, across the mid west, through IL, across the lake and here.

But you live right where it starts (canada)

It does make substantial temperature decreases and the winds can cause multitudes of damage. it's like the Ike storm here right now. temps are supposed to be in the teens by tonight and singles/even below 0 later on.

It was snowing hard, 60 yr old man drives down the road, gets stuck.

Around here it's been anywhere froM 15-17*F during the day to as low as 2*F at night. but next week it's supposed to be warmer

Ice, do you live in the North Pole? ain't no way Canada can be that cold. even Alaska isn't ever that cold!

My comp/temp does that when i first start the car up and it goes to normal after a few minutes. i don't know why since i just rewired the entire thing? mine says about -155*F though then goes to 15*F last time i drove.

single-digits is unheard of here....that's why all the mains have frozen. the last few winters i'd lose water for maybe a day or two (that was my problem, since i didn't have 'heat tape' then) but now it's another issue. the ground has been frozen for a week and a half, and while my hose isn't frozen, the mains underground in the entire town are. can you imagine living a week and a half without a toilet and shower?!

Winter wonder land my @$$!!!! ain't nothing beautiful about winter. the only plus so far is that the power has stayed on unlike the month without that i dealt with last January during a huge ice storm.

You Canadians have things well prepared for. buried utilities, deep water mains...time for us to realize that winter is only going to get worse and worse each year.

Oh it fires right up now since the points were put in, it's just that in 15*F weather it sounds like you're cranking with a dead/low battery but it runs fine! just a little hesitant with the winter gas/corn crap they put in.

naw starter just turns slower in cold...battery doesn't have the same 'oomph' in winter cold plus the extended time not driving probably turns the oil into molasses. in the 20s-30s it's fast as usual at cranking.

I'm just glad the damn thing starts. last winter it refused to start unless it was at least 25*F or above.

My starter sounds nothing like yours, yours sounds a lot like the old D-100 one i put into my 1985 Fifth.

1988 has the better starter, unless the only criteria for selecting a starter is sound instead of actual starting performance.
Title: Re: The Official Weather Thread.
Post by: Nickdalzell on January 10, 2010, 16:37:31
it sounded like the really older reduction gear starter used in the 70s to me, on the trucks and big-blocks.

it didn't sound at all like the cheesy nippon denso junk used from Auto Zone or the tiny ones used in 1989 or in later model trucks?

Perhaps the one in my car isn't the original from the OEM? i wouldn't know.

thats a gear reduction on my old car it was replaced with a rebuilt unit for a '83 or at least thats what the sticker said when i was under the car looking at it when i put the exhuast on.

I didn't get the F/A inside, so now it's covered in snow. The AHB is parked inside, so I might as well have one dry car over putting a soggy F/A in the garage.
I 'WAS' gonna put the F/A into the winter storage location today. :doh: :pound: Everything looked OK weather wise-until the wind changed just a bit.

Gotta get it done, 'cause there is a chance of snow on Tuesday (one more for "Old Times" sake, Remy!). Kids were outside most of the daylight hours; the three-year-old spend the day trying to keep up with her sister (6 years older) and the other kids, so her head hit the dinner table and she was O-U-T...

Starts at one end at the Blue Water Bridge in Sarnia and runs east to London, then you pick up the 401. Acually it's Lambeth on the map, but it's part of London.

So it snowed here at the beginning of the week, then it rained on top of it.  No school for the entire week, but I only stayed home from work 2 days.  Roads suck because the local places don't know how to spread salt and they wonder why the roads keep refreezing.  Friday, the trash collectors come for the first time this week, and mail comes for the first time, so does Fed Ex, but yet I've had a UPS package sitting at the delivery center since Monday and they can't deliver it.  I can't believe UPS is so incompetent they can't delver when even USPS and Fed Ex can.

That's nothing. As I look out my window at the thermometer it says -29C right now. -20F. I might have to wear my winter jacket if I go out today. We don't need no state of emergency for normal winter conditions around here.

Im not saying anything  :blink: Cold days of the winter around stores here are actually good days to tell who's from here and who isnt- you see some people with just a jacket thrown on walking from their car or store to store and other people who have their jackets done up, hats on, scarfs over their faces, mitts on.

I pulled one out that was like that. Amazingly, Civics do not get excellent traction on 6" of snow on top of 3" of mud.

When a FWD gets stuck with the wheels in a bad place, it's over. A RWD you may be able to dig out, may be able to lean around, and may be able to not dig deeper in the crap. A FWD won't slide in ice as much though.

Yeah, I saw a stuck 4x4 dually Superduty a while back. They have a big ol' 4x4 and so they have no problems at all about getting stuck... of course their tires are awful and it is a wonder they don't get stuck more often. The lil' 4x4s often flip. Too light to be very crazy in the snow/ice, only a bit more traction than a 2wd full size.

I like the orange tint alot of folks get from a tanning bed, kinda like an extra bonus. Ya never know when you'll be outside at night walking around and that "safety Orange" just may make you a little more visible to motorists!

Another side benefits to tanning beds is all the bacteria and funk that can thrive on 'em...ask my wife, she specializes in virology and bacteriology- not tanning salons, however!

Yeah, weve had a heat index of 100-110 for the past three days or so. Been under a heat advisory from Sunday, and it probably wont end till at least friday. The part that sucks, is no A/C, and the dark vinyl doesnt help. As far as A/C at work..im currently back at the pizza shop, so we have the heat on while were making dough, and between that and the ovens, it makes if feel nice to go outside. Not saying itd be different at the warehouse i was at during the winter, but driving the forklift would be a nightmare.

Just like I thought. The guy who put in the new zone valve had it wired wrong, thus the thermostats weren't calling the boiler.
Had the valve put on in late May, so the boiler was never on and not tested.
 
Now I have heat. Was 62 in the house.
Then the temp is gonna be high 70's this week.

Well, it's been a week without power. My Gen crapped out on me last night and I bought a new one today. Very surprised there were any available. What was NOT available was the 4  prong 30 amp plug that goes into it. I thought the one I had was an exact match but it was not. Spent the day looking for one. Went to Home Depot and Lowes along with about 8 hardware stores. The last Hardware store was the winner! Swapped out the plu now I am back in business. Got a late 90's Coleman Generator with a good 10 HP motor but a bad enerator to off. Maybe I can get some of my $$ back. :x

Took my 5th out today for the first time in a couple of weeks that we had some nice weather (mid 50's and I wasn't at work). Had to get a state safety inspection, so did that. The guy that did it told me he really liked my car, and one guy opened the hood to look at the engine. He then told me he sold a '84 5th a few months ago.......for $500.  :doh:  I saw that car when I first moved down here last year, a white car with red interior and pin striping that sat for months before selling. Would have gone nice with my black 5th! Oh well.  :hmm:  Kinda late in the year for you to get snow isn't it Ice?

It got cold fast here, and the wind was a killer.  Were you around for all the rain yesterday?  Last night felt tropical, this afternoon was the north pole.

Pretty much every surface here got coated with ice that turned it into a frictionless bearing last night. The company I drive for sent me on a run to Indy right when it started. Two hours, 30 miles, three dozen slide-offs, and one crashed salt truck later, they call me and say it's too dangerous for their people to be driving.

Thanks, guys. Could have used that decision a wee bit earlier.

24 hours later they havn't even thrown so much as a handful of salt on their own parking lot. Seriously, guys? I gotta drive through the grass because you're too lazy, cheap, and negligent to even deal with your own lot?

The fireworks complainants are too many to even handle. Call after call after call of angry people. They let it go for an hour or so, but once it hits about 11pm alot of people have had enough.

Then again I only have a 5100 and 9000 btu units running.

Have a couple back up A/Cs, because if one goes during a hot spell like this, the stores won't have any.

Broke the high temp record yesterday, so Ice Cold was popular at work.

There's a ice machine @ 1/4 mile away from where I'm working. Grabbed a lift truck, and took cups of ice back for the guys all day.

Then when I came home for lunch, I grabbed a big box of popsicles and handed them out.
I think the company owes me. :whist: They have 4 bucks. :doh:

55 degrees can be two different animals here if the wind has anything to do with it; usually in the spring its a warm 55 since we have a southery breeze and fall its a cold 55 since its noth-westery winds

Was cool and rainy this AM. Headed up over Snoqualmie Pass, light snow with rain mixed in. Did my "Parts trade" outside of the city of Ellensburg, went out the east side of E-burg (where it was about 55-60 degrees F and sunny), and picked up my friend at his ranch (he and another buddy just drove a '76 Dart A38 car up from Pheonix, arrived around 1230 today). On the way home, as we hit the Pass it started snowing like it was late December.
Man if that is an indicator of winter's plans, we are going to be shoveling a lot of snow this year!

I try to always take the truck to WalMart (or any other store).
I still park far enough away no matter what I drive that it's rare anyone parks close to me.  The ones who are lazy and have to park as close to the door as possible are also the ones who can't park or open their door without hitting your car.  You're also less likely to get hit by a stray shopping cart the further away you are.

Stockpiling supplies helps the economy too.

My area is in the bullseye cone according to the predictions right now.  Looks like lots and lots of rain, and strong winds for a few days.  I have prepared as best I can.  I got non-cooking foods and plenty of water, and other stuff.  Batteries, etc.  All I can do.  My job (the Fed Gov't) is closed tomorrow so I don't have to go anywhere.  I'll be online from time to time, that is as long as I have power.  Went through something similar with that Derecho that we had 4 months ago, but it was 90-100 degrees at that time.  Almost 4 days without power in 90 degree heat, was not fun.  At least it will be quite a bit cooler this time.  Its just raining right now with little wind.  Should be interesting.  Opening up the bottle of wine and riding it out!  :drunky: :w00t: :D :biggrin:

Keep the updates coming so we know all is well. Hope it doesn't get to nuts.

Oh yeah, out East things can get pretty nasty and pretty fast too.
Like they say in Newfoundland... "If you don't like the weather, wait ten minutes".


It's starting to giv'r pretty good here now, wind gusts are probably around 40-50 mph and lots of rain now.
Nothing I haven't seen a million times before
Of course they've hyped this thing so much up here people are overreacting 
Was at crappy tire today, the gal on the cash told me they've sold three generators today.    :blink:

Ok, depending on mood, I might like "nice Sandy" better too.  :biggrin:

I was quite pleased that my Aspen stayed totally dry and I didn't lose any car covers. I had it under three covers! That's right, three. Then used strong bungee cords front and rear. The '89 AHB was in the garage, and the '88 AHB drivin everyday.

Phew, relief. I was worried I was going to come home from work and find the car covers in the canal next to my house and the Aspen soaked, but nope. Interesting note; the Aspen was delivered to me on a rainy day, but has not been wet since. Came close a couple of times. I know it will have to get wet now and then, but the less the better.

Giv'n'er pretty much non stop here.

Still nothing to buy generators and water over

Well the final report is...
Sandy's come and gone
No apocalypse
Gusty winds and rain, that's about it.
Hope all the people who ran out and bought generators kept the receipt
And I'm guessing they won't have to buy bottled water for a while.
About mid 40's and breezy this morning and clearing up.

Amazingly lucky at my place.  No flooding, None of my trees down, power has been on the whole time.  Neighbors carport collapsed, other Neighbors tree dropped a limb a few feet from my garage.  Worst damage to my property is that my pink flamingos now have bent legs.

Now in NYC and NJ, it's all over the news. :o

But, if you're 14 feet below sea level, then it's tougher to feel sorry.

Weathered the storm as best as we could here.  Haven't posted because I still do not have any power.  I am at work today for the first time this week.  Lost a lot of huge tree limbs but not much damage to the house.  The storm ripped one of the downspouts off my front porch and deposited it in the alley beside my house.  (all in one piece yet) and took some siding off the side of the house.  Left tons of debris everywhere.  And of course no power since Monday evening.  Kind of "camping out" at home.  Got a source of heat and light inside and a camp stove (to use outside of course.)  Emptied the big freezer out yesterday (stuff was still frozen solid, I love my deep freeze) and took it to my parents house to put in their freezer. (it just fit, lol)  That's about it from my area.  Hoping to get power real soon as this camping type thing is getting old with me, lol.

The wind here had to be worse than the little airport nearby was reporting, everywhere around us had gusts anywhere between 65 to 80 MPH.  Everything here is covered in small bits of shredded leaves. The wind was so strong it literally ripped the leaves apart while they were on the trees.  I filled up the fleet on Friday and Saturday so I was ready but the lines for gas are incredible, some 2 or 3 hour waits.  Stations are running out and there are cops at every station to direct the lines and prevent fights.  Still over half a million people without power here too. 

For anyone seeing pictures without context, this pretty much sums it up.  http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2012/11/before_and_after_sandy_photos.html 

And it's not just closed up vacation homes, people live there year round and the mainland is just as bad around there.  We've been ordering supplies so that family down there can pick them up at stores and deliver them to local shelters.

Good! And you are right. A couple of years ago a quick violent storm swept through my area with high winds. So many trees came down it knocked the power out all over. All the repair crews were overwhelmed. My power was out for 8 days straight, and it also knocked out my water since I am on an electric well. Then a stifling heat wave came in. No A/C, no water, no showers, have to flush the toilet with buckets, man it really sucked. You don't appreciate it until its taken away, indeed.

Dodged a bullet yesterday.
Coming back on the infamous 400 highway.
Infamous, because it's a straight run with no real way to get off for a l-o-n-g stretch.
If there's an accident you're pretty much screwed.
Made it home and about an hour later it was shut down with accidents.
Whew...just made it.

48° and raining this morning.
A bit of snow last night but gone now.

If I remember right, in Florida, you have to pay the price with the electric bill. All that heavy A/C use combined with really high wattage rates resulted in really high power bills, at least the people I knew.

We're in the middle of a blizzard right now. The good thing is the snow is blowing and not settling as much as it normally would. The bad side is whatever is stopping the wind is getting buried.  By the time I got my car brushed off I had to do part of it all over again.
Then the idiot drivers start surfacing- traffic is going under the speed limit which is great because everyone is sliding all over or hitting snow drifts that's making their cars steer by themselves, but then you get one idiot going half the speed of everyone else and once you get around them there's another one up ahead somewhere. Throw the dumb-asses who were too lazy to brush the snow off their cars into the mix and it's real fun out there.

So nice to have their own personal blizzard unloading onto your car when you're behind them.
Add to that the morons who just gun it on a hill and start going sideways
Then get freaked out and just stop when the only hope you have of getting up that hill is
DON'T STOP!!!
Of course the plows have gone by and piled a mountain at the opening of every sidestreet.
That's why you gotta love one wheel peel.
Crank the wheel and gun it, ass swings you in the right direction then plow on through
That's the only way I got in my driveway.
And yes, it's coming down so fast, by the time I went into the beer store and came out
My car was covered again.
Yeesh!!!

Just got done digging out. Did the driveway twice yesterday only to wake up to average waste high height of snow. Varied between  knee and chest high due to drifting. Had to clear one section before I could start the next and move it again so I had somewhere to pile it. Repeated that a 1/2 dozen times before I did the same to unbury my cars. I think its nap time..

ain't nobody bragging or happy about 8 degree Fahrenheit weather, but our summers make up for it, around here its nothing to see 110+ and 100 percent humidity. it never used to be this way, used to be a maximum of a nice cool breeze 80 degrees and seldom over 50 percent humidity, our climate is changing

actually I remember having to shovel the snow banks down in front of my house in the ditch so I could see the cars that were coming down the road, right now I can actually see water running in the ditches

It's raining but there are still curbside glaciers everywhere
And those are now 95% salt.

We are having a government long weekend, so the weather people always try to brainwash the public and tell them it will be nice.
If they went on record and said it's a washout, all the sales of beer/camping supplies/gas/BBQ stuff-ect would tank.

The year is wet here.  All of last year rainfall was 37.03".  2013 is not quite half over and Atlanta has already close to 40" of rain (10" of that in June alone), easily exceeding the total for last year.  Average yearly rainfall is 50" so it should be well above average for the year.

I can't believe how much I've mowed this year.  And it is so darned humid.

Tomorrow is Independence Day here in the ol' U.S. of A. and every special event in my area has been cancelled because people are so hurt by the flooding we've had. FEMA is here and they just called in the National Guard. What a mess.

Literally the only thing that spared me from being flooded out is the fact that I live on top of a hill.

Won't be the same tomorrow with no fireworks and whatnot...and it's still raining. Looks like we won't see a string of sunny days here until at least next week. I have to move west!

Not too hot, not too cold.

Used the engine block heater in the tow truck for the first time last night.  It got below 30 degrees one day last week and it took ten minutes to start the POS.  So last night I saw it was 33 when I got home and I plugged it in.  This morning 27 degrees, took no more time to start than it does in hot weather.  Still took awhile to warm up and actually be able to GO anywhere, but at least I wasn't cranking and waiting and cranking and waiting hoping the batteries hold out for this pile of crap and cranking and waiting like last week.

Gotta be a lot of crashes around here.
You can see the ice shining under the snow.

I had the no winter tire F/A out and it was 'slip and slide', but still not a problem for me.
The winter tire Lebaron was much better, but still was sliding on the ice.

Of course no sign of any road crews doing anything.

Last year I watched some woman in a pissan lose it.
She slid into a tree, bounced back and landed on a snowbank.
I went over to make sure she was okay which she was...
She asked me if I could give her a push...
I told her she'd have to have her wheels on the ground in order for it to help.
All four wheels off the ground on a snowbank.....

Proof that even driving slow on ice is useless.  This guy claimed he was doing 20 in a 35.  Slight curve around, he made it halfway before his car decided to go straight, down into a drainage ditch, and right into THE ONLY FREAKING TREE WITHIN 500 FEET.

(http://i42.tinypic.com/33zg31h.jpg)

The tree wasn't hurt too bad but I had to pry the grille, bumper cover, and license plate bracket off after pulling the car clear.

(http://i42.tinypic.com/2v2bfk7.jpg)

After this I headed across to another rich part of town where a young lady saw one of her cousins get his truck out from in front of a bunch of people who parked behind him in the driveway by driving across the front yard.  She thought she could follow his tracks in her Scion tC.  Nope.

Sorry, no pictures of that one.  But here's one for you:

(http://i43.tinypic.com/2lseblk.jpg)

This guy went driving straight across a Walmart parking lot.  Didn't notice the curbs for the ATM lane.  Destroyed his core support, front bumper, radiator/condenser, and set off his airbags.  He claims he wasn't going very fast and it startled him.  Yeah, hitting an eight inch curb with a car that has five inches of ground clearance is going to freaking startle you and probably your bowels, too.

There's a wind storm coming which means the hydro lines that now way a thousand pounds will be blowing around and the one's that are still up might go.

Most cellphone service....mine included is still kaput.....can't even text or make calls.
I heard on the news that someone finally got through to the major service provider and asked if they knew when it would be up again
They just laughed and said..... "no..."
I had to finish my Christmas shopping today and finally had to inspect the Fifth.....
HOLY CRAP!!!!
I took a couple of pics but can't load them till I get real service back.
The entire car was coated with an inch and a half layer of ice.
I did plan ahead and left the rear passenger door unlocked.
After chiseling the ice of the handle so I could open it my only option was
Crawl from the back seat to the front, start it and sit there with the defroster running for a half an hour.
Finally persuaded the driver's side door open and got the sheet of ice on the windshield thawed enough to start getting most of it off
Driver's window took much longer but got enough off to see.
My friends who had no power just got their juice back this morning.
The sidestreets are a total skating rink and there are massive tree limbs down everywhere....

I woke up to that yesterday too. I was only to scrape little holes in the side windows to see thru, my car looks like it was dug out of an iceberg. The plus side is it got warmer those last 2 days. The down side is we must have gotten over 2 feet of snow. The snowpiles down the side of the street are up past the car windows. And then when I look at the thermometer just now its back to -25C out.

My car is still an iceberg and it's snowing here now.
They never did really clean up the smaller streets and we're now getting back to arctic temps
So it'll be a skating rink for a while to come here.

We've gotten more snow so far this year than the previous two years combined, and winter is far from over. Not to mention the snow seems to start later and later each year. I never wanted to buy into the global warming thing but I have to admit there is a difference since I was a kid.

I don't think "global warming" necessarily means it's simply getting warmer, I think it means that climate patterns are changing. I don't think we'll see upstate NY or even Canada become like Florida any time soon - but I have to say that the patterns are changing and it's plain to see (from where I'm standing). In the summer here temps hover in the 90's all season where 20 years ago they'd never climb past 85 except for maybe a week or two in August - and we're getting "100 year floods" every summer.

I'm still undecided on global warming but something is different.

Disclaimer: I still dislike Al Gore.

You're right....it is different now.

I'm sure we have an effect on it but realistically so did dinosaurs with bad gas.
It's always changed and always will
The earth is a living thing after all.

This style of radio does some strange things with the power it receives.  Mine followed me from a previous , front drive New Yorker, that was destroyed in a parking lot by a crazy driver.  When the car was hit, the radio ejected the CD.  So I could see the radio resetting the clock with a drop in voltage while cranking a weakoned battery.

Love those cold start videos. Next time you have a chance, look up cold start videos for a GM CUCV 6.2L diesel. You'll be scouring eBay for one within minutes. At least I was.

Talk to my car about that.
You are right but the wind does make a difference.
In Sudbury they all park against a wall if they can to shelter the car from the wind.
They say it makes a difference.
Either way straight temp wise we were around -16°F
And my Fifth is indeed parked in a wind tunnel.
It was not a happy camper.....
I'm sure you still had me beat out where you are
But you didn't have to fire up a carbureted Fifth did you?    :p

Wait, you've been using windchill as temps? In that case it's been -36F and into the 40s around here. I always just go by what the real thermometer says.
Today is warmed but a bit but haven't been out yet.

Yeah...I was saying this morning it was -33°F with the wind chill...actual temp was around -17°F
So you were 3-7°F colder than us.
Going by the norms for us that's arctic.
Out east of here you guy's are always colder but we almost had you today.
We even smoked Winnipeg for cold this morning.

WHADDAYA MEAN YOU HAVEN'T BEEN OUT YET???!!!
I've been frozen at least three times today and about to do it again.

Best retort ever.

We're headed for Canadian weather here in central Ohio.  Monday night and Tuesday we should see -12 F and wind chills in the -30s and -40s.  These people aren't prepared for this stuff.  I've got serious layering going on and it hasn't even dropped below freezing yet.  I probably look like a tourist.  Except I'm in a tow truck.  Jump starts galore around here and it's not even cold yet.

Well first it snowed for most of the night.
Then it turned to rain and made a lovely soup.
Then the temp dropped to around 25°F
So now everything has a beautiful ice crust on it.

Truly one of the most suck ass mornings so far this winter.
Rained, then froze...my doors were all frozen solid.
I always leave the rear passenger unlocked...
Pried that open, climbed into the front seat and started the Fifth.
Around fifteen minutes of heat on full tilt and I managed to get the drivers door open so I could get out and begin chiseling the iceberg off my windshield and door windows.
Of course there's an eavestrough that dumps water out right where I park so I got to back out of a skating rink...now over the course of the day the temperature is supposed to plummet so no hope of any melting....and then the joy of driving into work on a rink surrounded by idiots who can't drive in good weather yet alone this crap......
I hate winter the best of years...but this one truly sucks!    :doh:

It was 6ºF here in Atlanta this morning, wind chill was -6º.  The Dakota started fine but the power steering didn't like the cold so much at first and it took a bit longer than normal to upshift into OD.
Larry's 40º sounds pretty good right about now but they are saying Atlanta will be 60-65º on Saturday.

Then gently coax them open with the inside door handle.

The 2 big winter things with my Chryslers were the constant freezing windows that wouldn't open and the door locks that froze like that, that you could turn the key but the latch itself was frozen. I used to use a heat gun to thaw it to get in and then spray lock de-icer in there.
The next common winter problems was the weather getting so cold that the ignition lock would freeze and you would manually have to turn it back from start. It was a sign of trouble when you would see frost on the gear shifter and gauges.

5F this am, and the fifth was taking the fifth.  Every door was frozen shut.  Every door lock was frozen.  Probably from yesterday's heavy rain and 50 degrees and overnight drop to 5.  Used some lock de-icer and a pry bar wrapped in a bar as a slim jim.  Took close to an hour, but got the doors open.  She started with a little grumbling but settled right down.  Let her warm up and the locks thawed.

Mind you I've never had to try it in the cold you have to contend with.
The window seals...

-10 this morning.  The scary red LED came on, on the ammeter this morning, when I first turned the key into the run position, before hitting the starter.  That big, old time 50 pound gear reduction Mopar starter cranked over about 5 times, and Darth Car roared to life! :biggrin:

Snow drifts are higher than the polar bear fences.

There is a 6 foot deep/10 foot wide chunk of heavy snow to get through before even thinking of getting out without snowshoes.

Having problems with the Sat phone, so hope they get my emails.
Supplies are getting low and need diesel for the generators.

Not a problem, just a WTF second.

Someone ran over the stop sign/street sign pole on the corner.
Didn't see any bits of vehicle, but saw the tire marks and the underbody impression in the snow.

For some reason you always can get in the rear passenger door.

My attempt of getting out of the driveway didn't go as smooth as I hoped.
Back drive wheel got bogged down by the high snow.
Usually I get through it OK.

Last guy, called before 2pm and he's 3 minutes away.
He shows up after 10:30 pm.....so now I have to fire up the cars, this late in the freezing cold...in the dark
Then his snowblower's auger stops within minutes, his shovel splits, so now I have to supply shovels. :doh:

It's plus 8 here.  So we've been lucky.  Had maybe a half inch of snow the other night.  Took care of us and some neighbors in a few seconds with the shovel.  Hasn't really snowed enough since the first storms to need the snow blower, which decided to quit anyway.  It's a hand-me-down from a great neighbor.  I take care of his hot rods, he plows our driveway with his wrangler, I took care of his snow removal when he was recovering from a broken wrist, etc.  Anyway, this snow blower is a 95 crapsman.  It had a broken lever on the auger drive, a busted belt, busted pulley, and a few other goodies.  I made some parts, because sears prices are ridiculous, got the belts from the local auto parts place for half sears price.  And the belts gates super duty, made for snow blowers, etc.  So got it going and it worked great for the first 2 storms.  The 8 hp tecumseh had plenty of power.  Until the third storm, when it wouldn't start.  No compression.  Thought my gauge was busted, so I stuck my finger down the hole and cranked it (electric start).  Nobody home.   At first, with sudden loss of compression, thought broken valve spring, busted piston, or busted timing gear.  Took the head off.  Everything looks basically ok, except for a lot of carbon at the intake valve. Think carbon is keeping valve off seat.  Looking for a valve spring compressor.  My big one wont do the job, and I'm trying to stick to a budget on this.  So far, nobody has one to loan out.

Not enough choke, this morning at -18.  Sputtered, and chugged down the road for about 5 minutes until it warmed up better.  The real fun was stepping on the brake, and all of the stored vacuum leaked from the power assist into the car cabin.  Engine did not like that loss of vacuum either.  That problem fixed itself after about 7 minutes of driving.  SO now I know, -18 is about Darth Car's limit.

Darth actually has a greater limit than that but the rule I've learned with arctic Fifth Ave driving is..
I won't even attempt to go anywhere until my temp gauge hits the second line.
In -15-ish or colder I'm easily sitting for ten to fifteen minutes before I go anywhere.
Then and only then will she tolerate me making her drive.
Once warmed up she's totally fine but until then she'll have nothing
