Cold

Post by dieseldr on February 20th 2015, 12:57 am

I feel bad for you all down there with the cold.  It has to be brutal, and when the wind is figured in, it's downright cold.  Not that it isn't here, in Western NY, because we have been blessed with almost every day for the last two weeks with high temps hovering near, or just below Zero, and over nights regularly around -20 or colder, coming close to -30, and the wind chill has been brutal.  Tomorrows forecast is -40 wind chill, with highs around -5.  Not going out to work....PERIOD.

Your above US 80 you guys get hammered up there... Down here in Pittsburgh we're next to the Mason Dixon so it's not that bad but this year is different, we are all getting hammered with dead cold..

I'm staying in and canceling work (electrician). I'll go to the Stations of The Cross this afternoon and then the fish dinner..

I remember those old timers telling me to save my money because when you hit 60, your not going to want to work, man am I glad I listened!!! While my buddys were buying new cars every year and going to Disney world, I bought a modest home, drove an old, paid for, truck and saved.

This is the best vacation I ever had...

If it's below freezing by one and they call for one inch of snow everyone here freaks out. The white death is coming. All the yuppies wipe out the local Kroger for milk and bread. I still have not figured out what 3 gallons and 4 loafs of bread will do for them if they do get snowed in for 2 months. lol

3 to 5 inches expected of Snow and Sleet coming for Northern Kentucky and Southwest Ohio for Saturday (2/20/15) forecast.  

If Drivers Testing would go back to my day, we wouldn't have everyone freaking out when snow fell. We had to drive on Ice and Snow in an open parking lot with cones. Although it was rough driving on ice, we still knew what we were getting into when we had to drive on it.

Most drivers nowadays don't have a clue until they drive on it, which is too late for other drivers that are around them. If there is Ice, I don't drive on it. Snow is just common sense, take your time and you will get to your destination.

Drivers with 4x4's think they can drive fast without any repercussions. It may not be there driving abilities for some, but when someone cuts them off, there 4x4's are nothing but a sled trying to avoid others.

Then you have (most) drivers thinking they can still text or talk while driving in horrible weather. It's not just young drivers either! I've seen all ages talking on cell phones. Mostly older adults are seen talking on cell phones and younger adults texting. This makes me nervous when young drivers are looking down while driving. Which is where I usually get the heck away from them.

We get used to the cold every year, and the crappy roads to drive on. Your area has an overrun of "legendary drivers" who think they can drive on anything mother nature puts down. Then reality sets in. Slow and steady wins the race.... and gets you there. We DO have our share of idiots here too, so don't think you have them all down there.
