The Gonzo Lounge>How friggin Cold are you?
Hog's Gone Fishin 04:54 PM 02-13-2021
Here in the Texas panhandle 6 degrees all day. Headed for -7 to -10 by Monday.

6-12 inches snow tomorrow/Monday

had to call every tenant to make sure they keep water running or they'll be SOL for a week.

THANK GOD I don't have to deal with the Hog farm any more. I feel for the livestock producers. They earn their money in a big way!

Those bastard on the border trying to check in are fucked in their short sleeve shirts. LOL

30's and 40's is damned near flip flop weather right now.


The coldest I've ever personally felt it was in a little town ~20 miles north of Williams, Iowa. The actual temperature was -16, and the wind had to have been blowing around 30-ish mph. I was outside for less than five minutes total, and I hurt when I got inside. Never felt anything like that, especially so quickly. I totally understand and support htismaqe and the other Iowans wanting to get the fuck down south for the winter. Beautiful state for most of the other three seasons, but I get it.

Wow.

I saw a map/outline of how far south the cold goes, and it was in the 20's well into Mexico. Craziness.

I have friends in marble falls, TX. Right now they've gotten 6 inches of snow along with freezing rain and it's 7 degrees. They are also doing rolling power outages to conserve energy. Sometimes it ain't all it's cracked up to be.

have not heard what this could do to citrus crops etc in texas. I know not good.

The other thing happening here is car jackings and thefts. People let their cars run with the keys in it. Assholes take them. This happens every year but is up 300% because minneapolis is a shit hole.

We are being told to watch for others even if you are just getting in and out of your car. A week ago, someone had a car jacked with a kid in the back of it. Luckily both were found and the kid was ok. Not as cold then, but cold enough.

I remember in the 80's my grandparents talking about how cold it was in McAllen when they were there. Cold went 300 miles into Mexico. Freaked people out.

-31 wind chill.

Our house well is 6' deep, and it froze last night. Currently have a space heater cooking the fucker to thaw it.

Parents lived out here for damn near 50 years and never had it happen.

Rolling power outages, when people need heat?

Wow.

Yeah the Boosting thing has even picked up a lot in Billings. Someone will go start up their vehicle to warm it up and some slippey Larry will come along, jump in and take off. When I do that at home, I stick my German Shepherd in the rig. Zero chance of anyone getting in there and taking off with that dog in there.
