My boots are! I need to get me some good clothing for the rest of my body. Think a wet-suit would do good as underwear?

Cool Hey there DDR, We have a saying here in SoCal. "If you don't like the weather.............just wait five minutes." We went from high 90s to upper 60s just overnight. Not much affect on the local bite, but it suddenly makes your shorts too short.

you think that's something, we droped over 100 degreese in the winter of 96 in less than 12 hours. and that anint no fish tail.

it dropped form 60* all the way down to -60* and stayed there for 3 weeks.

that is one winter I will never forget. the only heat in my house was a candle in a tin can. no elecricity no heat, I was litterly forze in my house. doors frozenen shut for 3 days.

I remember when the old timmers would talk about hard winters. buddy that one was a cake topper.

LOL. I know what it's like in socal. I grew up in Barstow. Lately here in MN, we've been having high's in the low 90's with low's in the upper 50's. I love the temperature's either way!

I'll never forget the one day in Barstow when it was 85° when I woke up and by 2pm it was snowing. We had every possible type of weather that day. By nightfall it was back up to 95°. Yeehaa!!

Cool I remember that Winterstorm 95' into 96'. I was traveling alot that winter through Detroit Airport. The plane always landed a distance from the airport terminal and we had to wait for a shuttle in -70 weather. Brrrrrrrrrrrrr. Although I am no stranger to cold weather. I did live for a few years in Utah and Idaho so I did have my fair share of cold winters, ice fishing and black ice on city streets while trying to deliver the morning newspaper on a bicycle.

During that winterstorm 95' we actually got down to 29 degrees her in SoCal. I know it doesn't sound like much compared to MN but when you normally have 60deg winters here, there are alot of homeless that were dying here because of lack of shelter. Sad, but true.

with out a doubt, in florida when it drops down to 30's they start sceraming bloody murder. the refugees start dropping off like flies cause they never saw a day below 70. they scream more about the oranges than any thing else. we know they grow beans and tomatos during their winters. pretty much the same as southern califorina.

not many people beleive that winters can get that cold. what is surprizing that few people know is the outer space out side of our atmostphere is more than -100 degrease.

I know what you're talkin' about Dave. There's a family in my church that moved up here from Puerto Rico in mid-December. They had never seen snow before and have never experienced temps below 60°. They weren't prepared for the 20°'s we had when they arrived!

I, on the other hand, was eager to experience my first blizzard when I moved out here. Crazy I'm still waiting. Sure enjoyed the 4 mile hike through 6" of snow to borrow a car from a friend so I could get to work 15 miles in the opposite direction.

well I can brag about serviving only one real 6 foot blizard took 3 days to drop a few good snow storms that amounted to 15 25 inches over night.

the minisota west to the rockys and down to the colorado ski lodges get far more snow than we hare in michigan,

the lakes seem to act as a shelter (A heat force feild) that causes the majority of the drop to go around us, north, south, snow drops to the west of us and even new york and pancilvania gets more snow than we do.

makes it a little rough on the snowmobilers and skiers.

I wish I could say I survived "one" blizzard, but that wouldn't be true. I've been through three, so far, in Colorado and am anticipating a fourth this year. When the snow is up to the windows, I don't even think about trying to get out, but will wait it out. Although I did have to crawl out a window once to shovel the snow away from the front door, just to get out and inhale the crisp air (that lasted all of ten seconds).

Also four typoons, many tropical depressions and seven earthquakes.

Perhaps the meanest storm was in the Gulf of Alaska in 1968, heading home from Vietnam. A sailor ruptured his appendix and needed to be air-lifted to a base hospital soon, very soon, very very soon. The closest hospital was at an Alaska air base, so we changed course and headed right into the teeth of that storm. thirty ft waves, (the ship only had six ft of freeboard) wind blowing at 60 knots (96 MPH) and the wind chill close to 100 degrees below zero. The ice built up on the superstructure so we were "volunteered" to go topside with a length of pipe and knock it off. I sure didn't want to turn turtle, like the Posiden, and end up in the drink (survival time = about one minute). It was touch-and-go for a while but he was transferred to a helicopter and safely taken to the hospital. We turned tail and got the heck out of there. That was the first time, and last, I ever saw people come down into the engineroom just to lean up against a steam turbine for the heat.

I realize that we were all immigrates at one time in our family history, but enough is enough. America just doesn't have the resources to support any more free-loaders. Before anyone unloads on me for that statement, let me just say that I was in construction for 30+ years and have seen just what goes on, not newspaper accounts. It is disgusting. Enough said.

LOL. I wish I had the luxury of a blizzard bringing the snow up to my window seal. It doesn't work that way for me. My apartment is half way underground! It only takes 6 inches of snow for it to hit my window seal.

I'm just glad that I've got 4 wheel drive to help me get out of the parking lot when the lazy landlord doesn't get to the plowing in time.

This mobile home park manager once said that he couldn't get to plowing because the snow was too deep. This as I drove by in my 4X4 Chevy (Yes, I'm a Chevy man). It was 83 today, for the high and here it is midnight and it's 45 and going lower. Just the first of many gift storms coming through Montana and Wyoming. I've also noticed the trees starting to change colors (45 days early). If I ever see a catapellar with an overcoat, then I'll start stock-piling coal.

Hey John,

I know what you're talkin' about. We've had nothing but weird weather here lately. Just 5 days ago we were in the upper 80's... today we were in the mid-60's. Low's have been in the 40's as well. We did finally get some much need precipitation... 1-2" in the metro area... west of here got over 6" in 24 hrs. But the way it came down, it soaked in... didn't cause any flooding.

The foliage around here is also changing already. Actually, it started changing a couple weeks ago... probly from lack of rain.

Well, Joe. What can I tell you but to stock up on thermal underwear, it's gonna be a cold, long winter. I think it's time I started looking for a cuddling partner before all the plump ones are taken. Either that or rent a hibernating bear.

On a serious note, this weather change has nothing to do with global warming but the location of the Milky Way and the shifting of the magnetic North Pole. The North Pole is no longer in the Northern Hemisphere but has shifted west to Russia. We are now entering a phase where this planet is in the magnetic field of the Milky Way, another source for the erratic weather patterns. This really screws up the navigation of ducks and geese headed north, and south. You won't find any scientist with government connections telling you this and they discredit those who will tell the true. If the American taxpayer knew that the changing weather was due to natural phenomenon, then how could Congress spend all those billions of dollars? Remember the Hubble Space Telescope? It takes great pictures of a galaxie 100,000 light years away, doesn't it? Now gimme a break here. Who but a few scientists are interested in light 100,000 years old, and get to view it on our billion dollars? I would think our governement could put that money to better use by stocking every lake in America with trophy-size trout.

A friend of mine in Ohio has been researching this for almost ten years and has discovered numerous interesting facts. Every 10,000 - 15,000 years, the magnetic north and south poles swap ends. That's right, north is south and south is north. I wasn't around then but my ex-wife's uncle's niece on his mother's side swears that a distant relative on her cousin's side fifty times removed, wittnessed the last change, and it wasn't pretty. In another 500 years, the switch will be complete; no more heading south for warmer weather, but it will be north for the sunshine while South American enjoys blizzard conditions. We'll be trading in our snow mobiles for surf boards. It's supposed to be so cold in Texas that the oil wells will stop pumping, the crude oil will be thick as syrup in January in Vermont in an open bucket while sitting in the sun.

Ever think you could enjoy sailfish fishing in the Great Lakes? That's a high probability as the fish head for warmer water, north. The downside is that the sharks will follow. Shark attacks in Lake Michigan isn't as far-fetched as it sounds. Wall-eye tournaments in Columbia (replacing cocoa plant growing as the primary export), ice fishing in Mexico? Oops, here it is November. Time for the geese to head north for the summer, or was that south? See how screwy it can get? No wonder I can never set a compass correctly.

Hi davetclown,

Anybody that doesn't live 'in town' has a first-person or family story. What scares me is a lot of my mom's family 'back home' are Okies and gainin' on 90 years old but they still gotta live 40 miles from the nearest gas station. Snow/Ice Storms= telephone lines down, water pipes frozen closed, propane tanks/converters not functioning, roads blocked, and living alone. Just nuts!

hey john i hear ya there. i,ve had to do thatas fer as crawlin out the winders, haha then try trudgin up thru to feed bucky and take his water up. i,d have to take good many buckets up durin the day so,s he didn,t dehydrate. it,d sometimes, almost freeze fore i got there.it was funny, bucky was a old range pony, i tried closin him in to keep the wind out the barn, after all that shovelin and closin it up, old bucky kicked it wide open again. he liked goin in and out, and never seen a barn before oso it was a luxury fer him. haha probably the bein able to be walkin round kept him warmer circulation wise too kept him warmer. but then, there was times he,d git under the old pine tree turn his back to the wind and the snow would pile up on his back, so high you could only see his tail face,he got longer hair on him than most ponies do in the winter up here and was so cute. he had so much hair on him aroubd his fett he looked like a short little clysdale.{work horse} but he,d run around his pasture keepin his trailds down, i think that,s why he wanted the dorr open though.that must of been his survival instincts comin through. haha later he,d seen blizzards before. smart.hey there john, what,s tropical depressions?? later
