Just cold here now, but we're expecting a possible snow flurries/freezing rain/sleet mix this weekend. The kind of panic generating stuff for this area. Who knows if we'll really get it or how much, but I will take precautions.

40 degrees C is 104 Fahrenheit according to some conversion sites I checked, I hated doing those conversions in chemistry classes, why didn't they teach us the quicker method some of those sites listed. I knew that anything over about 30 Celsius was on the warm side just from rough guesstimates.

You have my sympathies, dean. What kind of work do you do?

Hey Yaddo42, around here if a weather man mentions the word snow all the store shelves get emptied because people think they're going to get stuck at home. One station even rate winter precipitation with a Bread-o-Meter.

Looks now like the bad stuff has been bumped from Sunday until Thursday when it will be in the teens at night. Makes snow more likely than ice, that's better for us. Ice/ sleet gets more people killed around here. Although I'll still have to listen to one certain co-worker who gets deathly afraid at the slightest hint of even a few flakes.

trekgeezer, I know the type, we have some who put out the stock up/don't stock up word to people on the air around here. When I was younger we had one who consistly predicted at least an inch more than the other weathermen no matter what the actual conditions were like. I became convinced he was getting kickbacks from the grocery chains in the area or at least the bread, milk, and egg suppliers. He never met a chance of flurries he could turn into "one to two inches overnight" and "icy and slick bridges and overpasses". He rarely acknowledge when he would miss a prediction which was often.

I work in audio/visual for a speaker company, but that time I was checking a plasma/surround set up for a customer of ours.  I drove about 70kms that day, and usually use the company car, but since it was late in the day, I took mine so that I could go home instead of swinging by the shop first and have them wait for me to get back.

You guys really should convert to the rest of the world.  Uneducated slobs...  TeddyR

As for the weather, we've just had a complete reversal again.  Rain for the last few days [a welcome sight indeed].  The flipside is that it's not in any of the catchment areas [or at least not as much as it could be] so the water reserves aren't topped up.  But at least it's given the firefighters a bit of a rest.

Of course, there's the massive flash floods that have been around because of the sudden deluge...  From crippling fires, to flash floods...

ARMAGEDDON COMES!!!

Well, no, that's just the way the weather is down here: unpredictable. It's been that way all my life.

Right now...we're getting hammered with up to 5 inches of snow in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

I love snow.  It's been a part of my life since I was a boy and couldn't imagine a winter without it.
I think it's funny when people think 50 degrees Farenheit is cold.
Try going out when the wind chill is -25.
So cold...the snot inside your nose freezes.
So cold, it hurts to inhale because the air is that cold.

The only thing that sucks about sub-zero temperatures is that you have to warm your car up.

dean, we tried to convert, it just never took. Even "The New Math" is a forgotten punchline. Best thing we got out of the attempt to convert to the metric system was a really funny series of Saturday Night Live sketches in the 1970s about the pending conversion. The Metric Alphabet (several letters dropped or merged and everything from about S or T turned into a staticy sounding jumble), the Metric Day (switching to a 100 hour day by hooking everyone on speed), and there may have been some more.

50 degrees F is about perfect outside weather for me. Cool but not cold weather.

Just cold rain going on here now, with a strong wind to make it feel worse than it is.

       Hate to make everybody sick but today it is about 75 degrees here, no wind, no clouds, yet. I could actually go out and lay in the beautious sun and get a tan....... Smile

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
