time to brrrr-burrow under the covers

Sorry if I keep posting about the freezing weather. I wouldn’t, except ... it’s freezing!! Everywhere!!

-45 in Chicago.

Snow in Southern Alabama and Georgia? Road crews in the South racing to spread salt and sand, trying hard to remember which end of the work truck the plow gets attached to? Gulf Coast highway I-10 about to become ice rink??

Record setting low temps and record setting coldest periods all over the country. Schools closed or delayed, thousands of flights canceled, frozen pipes bursting, bodies lost under the ice from fire hoses when the old folk’s home went ablaze ... and it keeps right on coming!

Second Round of Below-Zero Temps Arrives in Chicago Area
Wind chill values could sink to -45 degrees Monday night

They’re baaack!

Another cold weather system has ushered in below-zero temperatures and dangerous wind chills, three weeks after the frigid weather phenomenon broke Chicago’s record low, for that time period, of -16 degrees.
...
Chicago’s average temperature for the winter season so far sits at 20.3 degrees, making it the 13th coldest winter since 1872, according to the National Weather Service. But it could move up in the rankings after this week’s cold spell.

The “good” news is that it’s still relatively warm in Chi-town, compared to the 3 year slam they got 1976-1977-1978-1979. As if.

And here we go again ...

A blast of frigid air will grip most of the eastern two-thirds of the United States through Wednesday and could yield the lowest temperatures so far this winter in some communities.

The impending polar plunge will rival the frigid days from earlier this January for the coldest daytime highs and nighttime lows so far this winter. This does not include South Florida.

The arctic air first plunged into the Upper Midwest, northern Plains and northern Rockies on Sunday and is continuing to press to the Gulf and Atlantic coasts through Tuesday.

The magnitude of this cold blast will be enough to produce a far-reaching threat of frostbite, hypothermia, frozen pipes and water main breaks.

Spring seems to be an awfully long way away right now.  Winter got here early this year and is hanging on with a vengeance. Our white Christmas was the 3rd or 4th snow of the season, and after a slight melt off / rainy weekend in early January, it’s been below freezing the whole time since.  Time for a hot cuppa, then back under the nice thick pile of blankets. Old Mr. Groundhog ain’t got nothing on me.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
