Ding.  Anyone in the south goes "Winter?  You mean when it's room temperature outside during the day?"
 
2014-03-10 09:52:04 AM  
Winter can go fark itself.
 
2014-03-10 09:53:38 AM  
Um, I don't have to shovel humidity and my winter heating bills were insane, so how about 'no'.

Also, thundersnow was your number one? Trying to get clicks from Jim Cantore I see...

fark off, snow. I'm going to Hawaii to wait you out.
 
2014-03-10 09:54:44 AM  
I have a friend that lives in San Diego. He was always going on about how great snow is, its fun, its pretty, blah blah blah.  Last year he did an extended vacation to visit friends in MA, and was staying here one weekend when we got 15" of snow, and then two days later, another 8".  We spent the weekend shoveling.  He's now all "Fark winter", too.

I'm just curious if this vortex stuff is going to be a long term issue. Are the winters going to be colder than usual from here on out or will it move to different part of the globe next year? I don't think I want to stay in NorthEast if this is the new normal.

No, it's not.  Jets steam, like the Pacific engine, is a bit of an unpredictable climate mechanism, that changes on a year-to-year basis, not decade to decade.  It's entirely possible we'll see it a couple more years in a row, but I wouldn't wager that climate change is so dramatic to act as a on-off switch for these things.

10.  I don't have a slow cooker, and I would feel uncomfortable using it when I was gone.
9.    The rental company takes care of this.
8.  I seem to be screwed either way.
7.  Who cares?
6.  Sleeping in?  I have so much to do with not a lot of time so I try to avoid that.  (keyword: try)
5.  You can have hot drinks during the fall, spring, and summer as well.
4.  I don't take breaks from personal grooming, and this person sounds single.
3.  Doesn't matter to me, and if you wanted it to, you should have picked better pictures.
2.  Don't care.
1.  Don't care.

I find it odd that you would refer to the testicles of an animal that is generally better known for exemplifying bitter cold.  If they were made of brass.

I don't think they really know. 2009 "snowpoloypse" was also apparently a vortex issue though it wasn't mentioned in the media (oh how we love new terms). Last year London got snow it hasn't had in decades, they said something about the "jet stream", I'm not sure if that is also the polar vortex or not..

It would be nice to be back in an environment where my testicles can come back out.

Interesting deployment of the Cool tag, submitter.

It's supposed to be +5 here today, and by the end of the week it will be snowing again.  Is it can be spring tiems nao?

Fortunately I'll miss the coming snow by being in Dallas next weekend.  You're saying I should pack shorts?

Aug. 12 Moved to Indiana. It is so beautiful here. The rolling green hills are so nice. Can hardly wait to see snow covering them.

Oct. 14 Indiana is the most beautiful place on earth. The leaves are turned all the colors and shades of red and orange. Went for a ride hrough the beautiful hills and saw some deer. They are so graceful. Certainly they are the most wonderful animal on earth. This must be paradise. I love it here.

Nov. 11 Deer season will start soon. I can't imagine anyone wanting to kill Such a gorgeous creature. Hope it will start to snow soon. I love it here.

Dec. 2 It snowed last night. Woke up to find everything blanketed in white. It looks like a postcard. We went outside and cleaned the snow off the steps and shoveled the driveway. We had a snowball fight (I won), and when the snowplow came by, we had to shovel the driveway again. What a beautiful place. I love Indiana.

Dec. 12 More snow last night. I love it. The snowplow did his trick again to the driveway. I love it here.

Dec. 19 More snow last night. Couldn't get out of the driveway to get to work. I am exhausted from shoveling. Fricking snowplow.

Dec. 22 More of that white crap fell last night. I've got blisters on my hands from shoveling. I think the snowplow hides around the curve and waits until I'm done shoveling the driveway. Butthole!

Dec. 25 Merry Fricking Christmas. More friggen snow. If I ever get my hands on that son-of-a-b**ch who drives the snowplow I swear I'll Kill the bastard.Don't know why they don't use more salt on the roads to melt the damn ice.

Dec. 27 More White crap last night. Been inside for three days except for shoveling out the driveway after that snowplow goes through every time. Can't go anywhere, car's stuck in a mountain of white crap. The weatherman says to expect another 10" of the crap again tonight. Do you know how many shovels full of snow 10" is?

Dec. 28 The fricking weatherman was wrong. We got 34" of that white crap this time. At this rate it won't melt before summer. The snowplow got stuck up in the road and that bastard came to the door and asked to borrow my shovel. After I told him I had broken six shovels already shoveling all the crap he pushed into the driveway, I broke my last one over his damn head.

Jan. 4 Finally got out of the house today. Went to the store to get food and on the way back a damned deer ran in front of my car and I hit it. Did about $3000 damage to the car. Those damn beasts should be killed. Wish the hunters had killed them all last November.

May. 3 Took the car to the garage in town. Would you believe the thing is rusting out from the fricking salt they put all over the roads?

May 10 Moved to Florida. I can't imagine why anyone in their right mind would ever live in that God-forsaken state of Indiana.
 
2014-03-10 10:46:11 AM  
I look forward to Memorial day when at least half of the snow is melted enough so that the ground could begin to thaw out...but 3 month later is when the leaves start to change and the snow returns once again just after Labor day. Summer is very short here, but we try to savor it. Maybe I could try to repair the rotted out floor in the 2005 Sienna. The salt really went to town on the car.

Southeast Texas and North Texas are kind of amazing in that they're part of the same state, despite being pretty far apart.  Shorts might be overly hopeful.

Done in one.

47 is the new 42: 10.  I don't have a slow cooker, and I would feel uncomfortable using it when I was gone.
9.    The rental company takes care of this.
8.  I seem to be screwed either way.
7.  Who cares?
6.  Sleeping in?  I have so much to do with not a lot of time so I try to avoid that.  (keyword: try)
5.  You can have hot drinks during the fall, spring, and summer as well.
4.  I don't take breaks from personal grooming, and this person sounds single.
3.  Doesn't matter to me, and if you wanted it to, you should have picked better pictures.
2.  Don't care.
1.  Don't care.

In short, what bearded clamorer posted.


10. I do, and soup is just as yummy in the fall.
9. Yeah, no weeds.  Also  no freaking garden.  It's going to take forever for the damn ground to thaw.  And we might have to buy another grow light if our plants started indoors need to move to bigger pots and it's still too damn cold to move 'em.
8. HA.  My hair looks like crap.  Stupid dryness.
7. Um... the solstice was awhile ago.  DECEMBER 21st, actually.
6. Yeah, my job isn't writing lazy list articles so no, that's generally not an option.
5. Because no one drinks coffee or tea except in the winter?
4. STFU.  I totally enjoy having to carry heels with me to the office or conference or wherever so I can change out of my water proof, salt encrusted boots because I'm still expected to keep up decorum. Summer is stupid easy.
3. Ooh.  Photos.  I can look at pretty photos of Siberia without experiencing similar conditions at home, too.
2. Ugh.
1. Yeah, that was cool.  Still doesn't make up for 10-2.  And nothing beats "hey, I saw/heard the Thundersnow too" as a Facebook status update?  Really?  Shut up.

/there.  That was cathartic.

Who the fark are these people who get to sleep in just because it's cold?  Aside from government employees, I don't know anyone who's missed more than a day or two of work due to weather this winter.  If anything, I've had to get up earlier than usual to account for the 20 minutes it's taken some days to dig my car out.

Enough is enough for the east coast ths year. We're some 24" above average for snowfall this year and I've burned through a whole tank of heating oil due to the consistant sub-freezing days on top of it. Seriously not even those Blizzards were this bad 'cause a week or so later it got warmer and things were better. Not this every week or every other week more of this crap. There were like a dozen "Snow Events" which put us up over normal this time. I'm just about 62 now and I remember several Bad winters back to the 70's but this was the Worst in my memory as far as above average overall snowfall and constant cold.

11. No Bugs that want to drain that sweet red nectar from your veins.
12. No pollen to make life miserable for those of us who don't get along with Ragweed.
13. No Mold spores to make us miserable either.
14. No Bugs that want to attack you with poisonous barbs when you unknowingly invade their invisible "Airspace" near their nests.
15. It is easier to enjoy a crisp 10-25 degree day than a day at 113 degrees at 87% humidity.

I will never miss this winter, never in a thousand years.

Also if "crock pot dishes" are on the list, I guess people miss the point that slow cookers can make you a hot meal in the summer without turning your kitchen into a humid hell.
