Blimey, Alan!....

Its even freezing cold down in Alber-kirky!...>>>

...and Phoenix, AZ, isn't much warmer!.... :shock: ....!

Looks like I need to jump over the Great Wall of Trump, to go down into Mexico, and beyond, to find some warmth!

Paul....any temperature less that 75*F, at any time, is far too cold for me!

Southern Florida!

2nd January, a few days ago, the temperature was 85*F!

That's the sort of temperature I want to be experiencing!

What I suffer over here!.... :( ....>>>

The Snow is starting to intensify (slightly) and is moving into the Front Range. Should get heavier Tonight, with the bulk of the white stuff coming Tomorrow...

Shovels are at the ready, Chili, Beans & Rice are on low Simmer... time to curl up with good Music and a Book.

Rough weather on The I-80 from Sacramento to Reno over the Sierra Nevada Donner Summit at Truckee....>>>>

A bad stretch of road at this time of year filled with heavy goods vehicles on icy roads!

The Sierras are really getting hit hard, but they could use the Precip... BIG TIME.

The Rockies are getting it as well, which makes for nasty Driving Conditions. I-70 was closed in both directions last night near the Eisenhower Tunnel due to Accidents.

The brunt of the Snow will hit Denver by the Rush Hour (4 hrs. from now); then the Mutancy on the Roads begins in earnest. Glad I get my S&%* done early in the Day!

More Snow = More Shoveling, which = More Cardio!

Mayhem!

Lots of You-Tube videos of that stretch of road!

Glad I'm at home sat in front of my fire!

...and you keep telling me that you love snow and ice and freezing cold, Alan!..... :o ....!

Since retiring in 1984 I'm forever glad that I don't have to suffer enforced Winter driving conditions!... :dance: ....!

I stand at my front door....and decide to go back indoors again, in the warm!.... :D...!

I do Paul... I really do!

The key is knowing how to deal with the Cold, Snow and Ice!

However, I'm not mentally irregular; I don't drive in the stuff unless I absolutely have to. The above also applies.

I've had my Evening Repast, found a good book, and am ready to watch the rest of the Mutants create carnage out there.

I will laugh very heartily...

Looks like my NORCAL (Northern California) Sim Flights will be affected for a while!

The Sierras needed water to combat the serious drought.....now they've got gallons of it!

Rain and Snow a-plenty!

Temp last night was -5*C/ 23*F..... :shock: ...!

The trip to the shops and back on my Motorbike was uncomfortable at -2*C/28.4*F..... :roll: ...!

Being wrapped up against the cold limits my ability to rotate around to safely view the traffic around me!

Still...I did get some nice goodies to eat and drink...and I got home safely!.... :dance: ....!

Keeping an eye on the daily Forecast!

We hit -35F with windchill in the last 24 hours out here in N.D. Wonder if we will get colder than Mars again this winter.

Yes, that actually did happen once. We were in the middle of very cold winter, and Mars was in the middle of a 'warm' spell. So, for a few days, it was actually nicer on Mars...

...... :o .....!

Whenever I think of North Dakota (I did note your location), I am always reminded of the film; "Fargo"...Marge the Cop, the two villains, and all the snow and ice!

Anywhere near the Canadian border has got to be cold at this time of the year...or any time of the year!

North Carolina has similar weather to mine at the moment....

...and South Florida is bathed in warmth!

Paul....Weathering the Weather..... :D ...!
