  • More record breaking cold air on the way?

    Hi everyone

    It has been so busy these last few days.  Apologies for the late blog! 

    I’m sure you’ve seen/heard/are sick of the Nor’easter that brought close to 2 feet of snow!  Here are some of the totals:

    Temperatures remain very cold through tomorrow morning with breezing conditions.

    And believe it or not, we have another dangerously cold arctic air mass moving into the Northern Plains, Midwest and Great Lakes this weekend. 

    A storm developing across the Plains will bring snow to a wide swath of the U.S with plunging temperatures shattering cold air records. 

    This system will then move into the Northeast mainly as rain on Monday with dropping temperatures to follow.

    And on Sunday, we could witness one of the coldest NFL games ever played!  Here’s the forecast for kick off in Greenbay, and the temperatures/windchills will get lower as the game goes on!

    What do you think of all this crazy weather?   I think I’m ready for a nap!

    I’m in for Rick tomorrow on Fox and Friends, so if you’re up, tune in and say Hi!  Be warm everyone.

The snow was supposed to start at 5 pm yesterday, it was 12 hours late but making up for it now. Now 25 degrees and dropping to -17 tonight. 5 to 8 inches today and if/when it stops we will be shoveling our residential clients. The 'high' Monday will be -7. This will brutal.....Global Warming....God is laughing.

I remember "The Blizzard of '79" in Chicago. Happened in late January. I was working at the University of Chicago and lived a few blocks away. The snow was about 4 or five feet deep. I walked atop the snow to my office, admiring the beauty of winter. Many faculty and students couldn't get to campus that day. I thought the campus looked terrific! Talk about a "Winter Wonderland"!

Hello all. It must be cold back there where most of you are blogging from. Sounds about like Eastern WA back in the 1950's. Item: Right now it is 22 deg. at Kotzebue, AK, 30 miles north of the arctic circle so the cold must be all from central and eastern Canada. Be careful and safe. Be back later, I need to go out and set up my sunshade in the back yard. This living in the "Banana Belt of the Northwest" is tough! Sam

The severe wind chills may be historic to young people, but this type of weather is not new to older Americans. In Worcester, MA during the past 25-30 years, I remember a heavy snowstorm, with very cold air and winds arriving the next day. The winds howled; the snow became a whiteout and the chill factor, according to the local newspaper was 75 degrees below zero. A lot of the reporting on todays weather is just hype to impress the younger people in society. Been there; done that.

I live in Springfield, IL and Monday we will break records I remember from brutal winters of 1977-1979. Global Warming? Are you serious? Except for your weather report, FOX is ignoring this story IMO. Global Warming scientists stuck in the ice...God is laughing. Let me know if you are interested and I will send updates next week.

Hey folks. Figured I'd chime in so you don't see the stupid spammer the first thing on the blog. It is cold in my neck of the woods. It got down to 12 this morning but will get colder than that tonight since it's already that low. Not as bad as Frostburg, tho. When I checked WeatherBug this morning, they had 4 deg with a wind chill of -8. Sounds like we're in for some fun Monday night/Tuesday with lows around -5 to -10 & wind chills around -20 to -25. I've got 1 word for that--brrr! Margie
