Old news in flyover land


Of course it's old news: the flyover types are stuck in the 1950s.

Sunday we had an ice storm.  Last night we had thunderstorms.  This morning it was 57 degrees.  Tonight we have a winter storm warning and are looking at 4-7 inches of snow.  Winter sucks.

Yawn. The greatest temperature change in 24 hours occurred in Loma, Montana on January 15, 1972. The temperature rose exactly 103 degrees, from -54 degrees Fahrenheit to 49 degrees. This is the world record for a 24-hour temperature change.

Baltimore? Yeah, it's happening. They built so close to the water and now Ktulhu is coming to reclaim his kingdom AND THERE WILL BE NO COMING BACK.

It went from 55 Monday, 70 today, severe weather tomorrow, possibly switching to snow that night.  41 Friday.

It was 85 F today in Austin, TX. Lovely weather, but not for January. We always joke about not having a winter here, but this winter really has been especially warm.

Actually, it's farking with the water mains as well. WARMcoldWARMcold is causing the already ancient pipes to break moreso that usual. We had a bunch of random school closings in our area today - a few for ice and the rest for water issues.

Even NASA's own NOAA says it's the PDO and AMO that are most responsible for weather/climate changes, not the anthropogenic carbon dioxide component of the carbon dioxide concentration.

But I'm a denier, so there's that.

Well, I'll be... It HAS warmed up today. It's actually 2 degrees ABOVE freezing right now. It's been below freezing for the past week or so.

Street closed here in DC so they can repair a cracked pipe. But it's DC so it may just have been a crack pipe.
 
2013-01-29 07:11:28 PM  
Did you see the woman who was knocked down by the flood waters in Montreal and floated away down the street in a sitting position? I saw it on TV this morning and again on the TVs at McDo but the sound was off. I hope she was alright. But it was cool.

The students at McGill were building dams and trying to shovel the water away from their buildings.

How do you people in the East know how to dress? At least here in Arizona (I consider myself an east-West-coaster), we know how to dress by watching the news.

Up here in the east-West coast, we know that wool is for winter and you never, ever, ever wear synthetic fibers on your naughty bits. It shrinks then. What, are you stupid?

Also, white is OK after Labor Day if you're West of the Mississippi, but only if there hasn't been a national tragedy.

/why don't people pay me for this shiat?

No, the city is really cleaned up. I haven't lived here more than 4 years, but I was riding with a tow truck driver and he was telling me how terrible it is since the city got cleaned up about 10 years ago and you can't even get a decent $20 blow job anymore.
 
2013-01-29 07:57:45 PM  
Yeah I appreciate how Friday they were letting the kids out at noon because of the incoming ice...

And today I had to turn on the A/C.

WTF weather...

Baltimore's city water infrastructure is very old--you hear about a huge water main break and learn the pipes were laid in the 1880s. There was one last fall that was a rupture in a 48-inch pipe. There was a huge river going down the street that was very impressive. 48 inches is some serious water volume.

Doesn't NYC have these two huge main water conduits into the city that they can't inspect or repair? If they shut the water off the things would collapse (again, very impressive 19th-century engineering!). They just are hoping they finish the 3rd one before then.

If we knew how to dress we'd be on the West coast.

Looks like the Mid-Atlantic, not the Northeast, dumbmitter.

We get this in Roanoke a lot these past few years: gets real cold, then "an early spring", only to remember "shiat, it's still winter" and dump a few inches of wet snow on us.

Problem is, in the meanwhile the non-native trees feel the warmth and start to get leafy, only to provide more surface area for the snow to gather. Snap crack crash as the limbs give way.

Very much so in MI, as I am sure surrounding areas. Where the first signs of spring start with water main breaks and fresh pot holes. Followed by road crews throwing cheap patches on both and then new buds on trees and birds. In that order. You can't go by the clothing of the locals, for I have seen shorts and crocs being worn in a snowstorm. Don't ask me why, I can only guess they were on their way to walmart.

Srsly this. According to that map, the Northeast is actually the Mid Atlantic/Southeast
