Talk about, report, and complain about weather here. It does not matter where you live. Talk about what you got. Snow, wind, hail, storms, virga, meatballs. Give information about what city is close to you. Pics are great too.

This map can be used by anyone and moved to your area. It is customizable for you and gives a lot of information.

I have been in Austin for 20+ years and have always said that I prefer snow to ice if I HAVE to drive in it. Oh, and I don't miss shoveling snow!

But man, when you start spinning and can't get control back like that it is just a helpless feeling. I did that once on an overpass. Spun the wheel but couldn't get control. I was only going maybe 20 MPH. When I knew I had to let it ride out I threw my hands in the air and said "Whelp, that's all." My wife at the time freaked out thinking we were going over the edge. Never even came close That was a long, cold walk home in more ways than one. :-)

If that -17 with a -30 wind chill happens in KC early next week, I'd really think that's close to a record. :-)

Right there with you on preference of snow over ice. We get that 1/4-1/2 “ of black ice on the road first and then the snow covers it up. Makes driving pretty tricky for sure

The last polar vortex we saw come thru a few years back had something like that. I could be misremembering but it doesn't really matter much when it gets to -15 below plus. Just feels like a deep freezer you're walking through.

Nah. I left in 94 and experienced worse than that. It might be a record for the date, but not a record.

zero degrees and I woke up to the sound of a motor running…..ask me how freaking happy I am to have a whole house generator....we had it installed 4 or 5 years ago. We are on Rural Electric coop and they are awesome but time to time shit breaks down. We had a Generac set up to run the whole house and its been needed a couple times. Today at zero it is powering two heat pumps, both running on partial heat strips. Feel bad for those without power for sure

In the grand scheme of things-this can happen.

45F in Northern Canada.

But colder than Mars.

Interesting way to say you're high on bath salts and shitting in the bushes again.
